About Joyce LaVoie

My dream to own a tree house now includes my desire to share it with others. I enjoy meeting people, especially those guests who bring their grandchildren. We share a fire on our patio, serving the best S'mores! My unique story of how it came to be is shared, along with the visits from CBS Nightly news and Jason Davis, On the Road...Unusual places to stay.

Joyce LaVoie purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Joyce LaVoie chose Minnesota

Our tree house lets you experience the quiet of nature, wild flowers and wild life. We have a variety of books, games and stories we share with our visitors. That special bottle of wine, when empty, gets a reserved spot in the outhouse decor. Along with a special cork placement

What makes this cabin unique

Your trip Up North takes only two and a half hours from the metro area, is easy to find and offers unique Amish shops, antique shops, and local Mennonite grocery and meat selections of the finest around.

Your free 'Go Out on A Limb' t-shirt allows you to share that you stayed overnight in a tree house. It's crazy where they show up.

Quiet relaxing and serene

  • 5 of 5

Joyce and Richard were great. The tree house was perfect and our stay was very relaxing. The electricity is limited to one line they have run out there so don't bring a ton of electronic gadgets. You'll have enough to charge your phone and have a light which is perfect. The double bed is large enough for two to sleep snugly and the tree house stays nice and cool in the shade of the forest. Very serene.

Quick romantic getaway

  • 4 of 5

I surprised my wife with a short last minute getaway. This was a perfect spot for some secluded time together. It will be something we remember for quite some time.

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

The Tree House attracted us because it was so unique, but it charmed us because Joyce and Richard have put so much love and care into making it a comfortable, restorative vacation spot. I can't credit them for the perfect weather we had, but the nightly bird serenades and the lack of mosquitoes were part of the plan.

Wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Joyce has a wonderful spot and does and excellent job of making you feel welcome! The treehouse was warm and inviting when we arrived with a bottle of wine on the table. The setting was beautiful with total peace and quiet and the best view of the stars I have seen. Breakfast in the morning was very good and brought right to us! This is a wonderful experience destination!

The Treehouse in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My 2 sisters and myself decided to go away for a night and do something different. WOW, this was it!!! Truly unique and enjoyable….just what we were looking for. Joyce, the owner is delightful and makes you feel very welcome and special. We had the opportunity to visit a little that evening and found her very interesting and full of talents. The breakfast in the morning was served to us and very tasty. The only reason I hesitated giving this a 5 was no running water and then I remembered …It is a tree house….they don't typically have running water. Joyce makes up for this in several ways. Fun Adventure!!!!! Plus some REAL fun places close by to eat and see.
