The Adirondack-style Moose Meadow Lodge & Treehouse, nestled on 86 secluded acres outside of Waterbury, Vermont, is an experience that will take you back to your youth and leave you with an experience you’ll never forget.
Owners Willie and Greg simply go out of their way to make you feel welcome. From the time you walk through the doors and get a tour of the lodge to the time you leave the driveway, you’ll feel at home. With four luxury guest rooms and a magical treehouse, the property provides a relaxed, laid back setting, hospitality beyond belief, hiking trails leading to stunning mountain views, a trout pond, full kitchen access, breakfast and most importantly one of the most impressive treehouses you will EVER sleep in.
When you hear the word treehouse some people might think camping, but don’t think back to scouts when you were in a sleeping bag on the hard ground. We are talking glamping here; 100 percent pure luxury and you barely have to lift finger. This luxury Vermont treehouse features almost all the luxuries you’ll find at home, and still delivers the rustic outdoor experience of a lifetime.
The first floor is small and cozy — with a table, a couple of chairs along with a bench, just enough to play some games, do some writing or enjoy an intimate meal. All the necessities are there coffee maker, mugs, wine glasses, a few books, games and a flashlight and bug spray for when you venture outside for a night hike. On chilly nights, an electric wood-stove will keep you warm. Outside, a wrap-around balcony provides a great view and leads to the washroom, shower and bathroom. After making your way up the beautiful spiral staircase, upstairs is the only bedroom, where you’ll find a rather comfortable queen-size bed, along with another smaller balcony overlooking the pond. While it seems small, you really aren’t spending a ton of time up here. There’s also enough room for a cot on each side of the bed, just in case you are traveling with youngsters. Outside of the second floor is also a small balcony that over looks the trout pond.
Outside is where the fun is. Outdoor showers, sink and bathroom, The outdoor shower features 180 degree views of the woods and the trout pond, all with hot water and a privacy curtain for shy folks. When designing the treehouse, Willie and Greg were mindful that the tree needed water, so why not have the water from the shower and sink fall down through the 1st floor and water the tree. Brilliant! Along side the shower, is the rest of the “powder room” with a sink carved of stone, also featuring hot water. This is the only place to access water, inside the treehouse there is no water. Sorry folks but you have to go outside and “rough it”. Speaking of roughing it, when nature calls, head on over to the, rather fun, incinerating toilet that burns anything inside it at 1,400 degrees. This novelty is located just off the shower.
