It all began when we built our four children a treehouse, complete with bunk beds, a trap door, a swing, and a zipline. Even then, we joked about renting it out when our kids outgrew it. It wasn’t until we stayed in an impressive treehouse rental ourselves that we turned those thoughts into real ambitions. What started as a plan to build a few treehouses to rent near our own property turned into a mission to build the world’s largest treehouse resort in the Smoky Mountains. We’ve created rentals that are great for both family vacations and romantic getaways. Our goal is for Sanctuary Treehouse Resort to be a place where adults are taken back to their childhood treehouse days and where families can play and stay together while still respecting the beauty of the area. We are committed to protecting the wildlife and the nature around us, which is why our construction plan preserves as many trees as possible while we build within the beauty of the natural landscape. Everything from our initial vision to our goals for this resort truly make it a one-of-a-kind lodging experience.
