Those with an eye for design will appreciate the customized details at Tara's Treehouse, from the passive solar home site that provides sun in winter and shade in summer to the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that offers year-round discovery of seasonal views. Encouraging fluid movement from inside to out, the wrap-around deck places you in a paradise of ever-changing, undisturbed natural beauty, the perfect spot for an outdoor dining area and gas grill.
The fully-equipped kitchen at Tara's Treehouse will delight the chef in your group, plus there's a shuffleboard game table for a little after-dinner fun! Create a cozy ambiance with a wood fire that's wonderful for cuddling up and winding down, and enjoy your favorite shows on the living area's Smart TV with cable service and streaming channels (guests must use their own account for subscription services such as Netflix).

Two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa on the main floor offer plenty of space for friends and family to get their rest. Bonus: each bedroom has its own TV!
If building a bonfire stokes your imagination, the above-ground fire pit is great for making the most of an evening. Dogs love it here too, especially taking a walk to explore the wooded trails and play area in the yard. Tara's Treehouse is a modern mountain sanctuary, where connection and discovery come naturally!

Important Property Notes
• 4WD/AWD Recommended in Winter
The driveway to Tara’s Treehouse is both steep and narrow. During the winter months and inclement weather, a 4WD/AWD vehicle is recommended to access this property and it is strongly recommended that you arrive during daylight hours. We also suggest backing out of the driveway when leaving the home, rather than using the narrow turnaround at the top. For the extra effort, however, you are rewarded with seclusion, beauty, and a lot of fun just getting there!
• Guests will need to supply their own firewood to make use of the wood fireplace and fire pit.
• Travel Insurance Recommended. Due to the location of this home, any inclement weather in winter may render it unreachable. We highly recommend guests consider travelers insurance for this property as there are no refunds for weather.
Property Cancellation Policy
Please note that this property’s Non-Refundable Period is 31 days prior to arrival. If your reservation is made within this period, it will be non-refundable from the time of booking. Cancellations are permitted outside of this period, per our vacation rental agreement. We encourage you to consider travel insurance to help protect your vacation investment against the unknown!

Everything lovely. It was a great comfortable home. Loved the deck - view very nice.
This property was great! The Kitchen was very well stocked with everything you need. Furniture was super comfy and the view was amazing! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
It was very peaceful and private. I’d like to come back in the summer when the leaves are in bloom.
"This was a beautiful property! The location is excellent, and the amenities were great. The layout is perfect for a group of friends to hang out."
We saw some bears and 2 babies with their mama!
"We all had a really good time here, enjoyed the nature, best fire pit ever. "
We had a great time. We'd love the beautiful view.
We had a great time. Love the views and everything turned out nice. We even got some snow right before leaving Thank you!
A bonding work crew weekend Thank you Love the setting!
"We had a wonderful family vacation in taras treehouse! Lovely home, beautiful surroundings, and the best time together! Thank you for making this home a lovely setting and available to us! God bless, keep you and all who wait! "
Amazing beautiful views and we definitely recommend hiking Mount Mitchell and Linville falls! Happy Thanksgiving!
"Thank you so much for a perfect getaway - it is so hard to find somewhere that feels safe during the pandemic - absolutely perfect stay. Due to the pandemic, we wanted to be smart about travel (with three different households attending this family vacation). This location made us feel able to safely travel - different eating locations (all more than 6 feet apart), plenty of spaces to hang out inside and outside allowing us to ""cluster"" by household but still feel like we were together and have some sense of normalcy. Beautiful open space, great location, spectacular views. Also - with some people in our party who are VERY scared of heights, found the driveway very manageable. Last 0.8 miles were steep but totally doable - don't let that stop you! Your space allowed for a safe getaway and some much needed family time. We plan to come back! We will definitely be back!!"
"Stay was great! The place was spacious, clean and scenic. We did see bears so be careful leaving food and garbage out. The fire pit was a lovely touch. Thanks for a great stay."
"Wonderful times here - we saw a family of bears, heard hoot owls, and toured Asheville's many breweries. Used the fire pit and enjoyed the deck. Place was fabulous! Will definitely come back, place and area was just lovely and so much fun! "
We had a wonderful long weekend here spent exploring the area. The deck was a lovely place for morning coffee and pre-dinner conversation. We especially enjoyed all the butterflies we saw in the trees. The well-appointed kitchen was a pleasure to prepare meals in - and we enjoyed the shuffleboard game and the open living space.
"Beautiful home in the mountains surrounded by lush vegetation. We found Tara's Treehouse on a whim. Our teenage son had begged us to find a nice spot for a social distanced vacation before what is sure to be a stressful school year. Tara's Treehouse provided the tranquility we needed before the upcoming storm. Upon arrival we were in awe of the beauty of the house and surroundings. The mother bear and her cubs who showed up nightly provided better entertainment than any TV show could have provided. Watching her flip the bear can on its side was the cherry on top. Especially loved the wall of glass windows - it was spectacular! We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding - kitchen was well stocked."
What a perfect spot to spend a week with family. Beds and rooms were very comfortable and the deck and views are fantastic. We saw a double rainbow from the deck and watched mama bear and 3 cubs around the property. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
"We had the best trip. Bob-bob's turned 60. We played guitars. We drank coffee on the veranda. There was a baby deer & momma; and a bear that moved the trash cans. My great grandma hustled $$s from the family in shuffle board. We drove to Montreat & Mt. Mitchell & downtown AVL. We played & we loved. We smelled the sweet morning air and felt the cool afternoon rain. We smiled with the sun. I hope we come again. ""Understanding, Compassion, & Forgiveness"""
"This property delivers on a fantastic view of the mountains with a great outdoor sitting area. In this time of COVID, it offers seclusion and quiet. We greatly enjoyed our stay - 5-star Check-in, Cleanliness, and Communication. The kitchen is well equipped so you can take your own food and play some shuffleboard while dinner is cooking! The Blue Ridge Parkway is a short drive. We didn't find any private trails for hiking on the property which would have been nice. "
Your place was beautiful and very comfortable. We will highly recommend this tree house.
What a beautiful spot to gaze into and with nature in all its beauty and moving light.
Our stay was wonderful and the place was FANTASTIC. Will be back :)
Thank you so much for having us our journey started at Ingles. We then proceeded to play games including Slinkeys and our hips danced i.e. we jam them with some musical flip cups. Sorted M&Ms. Got one person had to eat 120 M&Ms LOL. We karaoked and danced all night. The next morning bar hopped all day in the mountains where the beer hit harder. Tyger Mountain has a very friendly kid environment and educational. Thank you so much your house is lovely!!!
"Very cool house in quiet area, very close to Asheville and activities in the area."
"Awesome spot , lots of privacy. Very clean home. Would stay again."
This was the perfect retreat to celebrate my 40th. Thanks to my husband for the special surprise. We thoroughly enjoyed the swings by the garage. So peaceful to enjoy a book or coffee there. The views are gorgeous and the orientation of the house perfect. The group loved the games provided after a fun afternoon at Cultivated Cocktails downtown. We look forward to coming back with our boys & dog. Thank you for having all the comforts of home here.
"Tara's Treehouse is in an absolutely gorgeous spot but only about 20 minutes to downtown. A great place to stay if you want a little bit of both during your stay in Asheville. The home was cozy, clean, and spacious."
"Your house was a wonderful peaceful retreat from our very busy lives. It was secluded yet close to all our activities; rafting, hiking, swimming, and tree lining. We are all sad to leave."
"This is one of the coolest Airbnbs I've stayed in. Standing in the living room, you really do feel like you are in a tree house. On our last morning, we saw deer in the yard while we drank our coffee. This was a great size for five people, and the kitchen had everything we could have needed."
Amazing views through the wall of glass. Neatly designed house with everything you could need for a wonderful stay.
"Two words that sum up my experience of this paradise retreat nestled high in the Blue Ridge: perpetual awe. From the moment I laid eyes upon this fascinating modern structure to the glee I experienced from entering and exploring the room to room aspect, it was the perfect place to unwind and heal from the stresses of everyday life. It is unexpected luxury meets serenity manifested. You have the seclusion and privilege of feeling like you are floating in a canopy of trees combined with sheer rustic glamor. There is attention to detail at every turn, from Appalachian inspired personalized painted art to automatic skylight shades to thoughtful interior design. It was the perfect setting to practice yoga on the elongated wrap-around deck while watching the sun rise over the mountains or bond with your loved ones. I felt one with nature, the birds, and trees. All of my cares and concerns just faded away. We sipped coffee in the morning as we rocked in handmade rocking chairs and sipped wine in the evening while watching a painted sky. The views were simply jaw-dropping. It is ideal for a brief weekend getaway, but I would recommend staying for an extended period of time because mark my words, you will not want to leave. My husband had to practically pull me away from Tara's Treehouse. My heart ached when I left! I hope that I'm lucky enough to return to one day soon. I would live there forever if I could. "
The most beautiful and well-decorated treehouse you will find. I can't believe I found this lovely home in the woods!
We had an amazing couples trip in Tara's Treehouse. The location and proximity to Asheville were beyond our expectation. You have to do the Land Rover Experience and the West End Segway tour if you go to the Biltmore. Asheville Adventures zip line and the Omni Grove Park in is awesome! Thank you for an amazing stay! Until next time.
Beautiful contemporary home high up on a mountain with amazing views! Highly recommend a stay at Tara's Treehouse.
"Thank you for a very well kept house! We enjoyed it. My daughter, son, son-in-law, and daughter-in-law with my 2 grandchildren had a bunch of memories made that I will always store in my heart. It was my 66th birthday weekend celebration and we really celebrated. "
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home! We had a great long weekend with our grown children. The leaves are vivid colors. The home could not have been more perfect.
"Our 2 sons and their sweet wives had a wonderful vacation here among the trees. Such a beautiful home and the scenery is awesome! Wonderful, definitely coming back. "
"Amazing! Loved the house, the views, and the whole experience. Sierra Nevada Brewery - what an experience! Dinner downtown - Fantastic! The decorations and especially Tara's artwork - Tasteful and beautiful. A Memorable Trip. PS. On our way The Biltmore Estate. "
We get together every year at a new location and we loved Tara's Treehouse. The views were breathtaking and the house was the perfect size for us S girls. Alumni of Miami University.
We loved staying at this beautiful treehouse. The decor was perfect and made our stay that much more enjoyable. We will be back!!
Tara's Treehouse is beyond perfect. We will be back soon!
What a wonderful week celebrating our 20th anniversary! Wonderful house! Thank you!
"Had a wonderful time at the treehouse. Saw a mama bear and her cub in the driveway, and the turkeys. Beautiful place! "
"Absolutely beautiful inside and out! Saw bears right on the driveway. Glad we were in a tree home. Amazing design/decor, perfect. "
Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. The views are amazing. The house is beautiful and the location is perfect. We loved Chimney Rock. See you again.
"We had a great family vacation in Tara's Treehouse. We spent many hours enjoying the porch and playing shuffleboard. The vacation was perfect. We went to Chimney Rock, Highland Brewery, Sierra Nevada, Lake Lure (Rented a boat for 2 hours). Okie Dokie Smokehouse for BBQ. Thank you for sharing this amazing home with us. "
"What a refreshingly unique place! I have rented all kinds of properties throughout the Asheville area and this house is so cool! Most of the stuff available are log cabins, which are great, but it's nice to finally have a more modern eco-friendly option. My group of 6 chose to stay here primarily due to it's proximity to some of the best mountain biking trails Asheville has to offer, Kitsuma and Green's Lick. As beautiful as Asheville and Blue Ridge is, we all could not wait to get back to the house at the end of the day. This house is smack dab in the middle of both so it only took about 20 mins to get to either. Coming up the road to the house we found an awesome little Amish market called Troyer's - some of the best sandwiches we've ever had! Also be sure to check out Nachos and Beer off the main road, really great/fresh Mexican food! Enough about food, the house was amazing. The driveway can be daunting but we drove several modified/lowered cars up no problem. The covered parking is nice and the yard is huge! As soon as you walk in the front door you really do feel like you are in a treehouse. The amount of natural light/the french sliding doors/the elevation are all awesome. Great views out overlooking the trees and mountains in the distance. The view from the corner of the living room is like looking straight down from a treehouse 50' high! The owner's did a great job with the furniture - they have created a very modern yet comfortable place where everyone was able to relax. We didn't want to leave! We all love to cook and found the kitchen to have absolutely everything we needed from pots to pans to nice knives/cutting boards and glassware. All of the appliances appear to be new and everything works great! We found ourselves split 50/50 between the living room and the patio, you really feel integrated with the property here. Every room had a TV and cable/Netflix/Hulu which was great. The living room has comfortable seating for 8 or 10, easily. The two downstairs rooms are perfectly comfortable for adult couples or kids and the downstairs bathroom is very nice. The master is very spacious with tons of natural light and closet space! The master bathroom is massive and the shower is incredible. Everyone in our group really loved this house, it's a great balance of practical modern style (love the concrete floors!) and comfort. Thank you for being so detail oriented and for the food suggestions, they were spot on! I think I've found my ""go-to"" place from now on in Asheville and am excited to book it again for a Fall trip to see the leaves change soon. "
"I had the opportunity to spend a few nights at Tara's beautiful home with a couple of friends and am already trying to find time in my schedule to make it back!! Tara's house is absolutely beautiful. Located at the very top of the mountain, it offers a degree of seclusion that many homes in the area simply don't. The master bedroom is located on the 2nd floor while the lower level has 2 extra rooms. My wife and I are quite picky when it comes to mattress comfort and both of us were pleasantly surprised to find new premium mattresses, which gave us an amazing night's sleep. The views offered through the floor to ceiling windows are fantastic! I can only imagine how beautiful the scenery would have come late Summer and Autumn. The kitchen is well-equipped and had plenty of cooking-ware and silverware to entertain guests. You owe it to yourself to cook breakfast, take it onto the beautiful deck, and enjoy a nice meal with friends whilst listening to the surrounding wildlife. Main Street Asheville is a mere 15 or so minutes away if you'd like to spend time in the town, popping in and out of its many cute shops and art galleries. I had an A+ stay and am confident you will too. Book without hesitation :) "
"***** (5 Stars) Thanks for my getaway from another boring hotel stay! I experienced Asheville by day and had this fabulous mountain house by night. Stylish home with great bedrooms, living space, and backyard fire pit. So peaceful and the home is beautifully decorated. Definitely booking again for my family this Fall!"
