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

Ministers tree house is such a cool place to stop off, but only if you're willing to trespass. If you just want to look from the road don't bother you won't really see anything. You can either slip through a small opening to the left...More

Says closed but people walk around fence and walk to it. This place is very neat. I hate that people have vandalized it but waking in and around this place is totally worth the trip.

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!
