Unfortunately the treehouse is no longer open to visitors. I had the opportunity to visit by invite of the owner. The treehouse is really an amazing structure.

It's fenced so You can no longer get in it's not safe but is impressive to see. It's located off the beaten path. When the road turns to dirt your almost there

Last trip to this tree house, it is closed. It has been closed for quite some time due to safety hazards and not sure whether it will re-open.

This treehouse is incredible! Unfortunately, you cannot go into the treehouse any longer and due to vandals it is fenced off from the public. You can still get close enough to feel the magic and get some great photos though!
