About Lisa Cooper

I am an artist who has lived on Hatteras with my husband, also an artist, for 39 years. I now continue to live and work on Hatteras by myself. I play guitar and other instruments, sometimes in local venues. My work is part time at a beautiful gallery in Avon called Kinnakeet Clay, where I create various items from slabs of clay that we sell in the gallery.

Lisa Cooper purchased this studio in 1987

Why Lisa Cooper chose Buxton

We bought this property after living here for many years. My husband was an avid fisherman, gardener and painter, and living on Hatteras Island gave him opportunity to do all of these things. We enjoyed the small island community and I am glad to still be living here.

Treetop Retreat Review

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect cozy get away for our vacation to the Outer Banks. The owner of the property was more than accommodating and ensured we had everything we needed for our stay. The location was perfect too!

Excellent for an economy short-stay.

  • 5 of 5

Lisa is a lovely person and provides a very pleasant hidden nook for a 2-person getaway. The room is bathed in light, the bed was great and the porch private. Pop’s, the bar across the way, served decent meals and Orange Blossom Bakery sold us Apple Uglies (a speciality) for breakfast. Small gripe: couldn’t find dishwashing liquid for washing up of mugs. Should have asked, my bad.

Truly a retreat -- cozy, warm, and welcoming

  • 5 of 5

Treetop Retreat may be the most aptly named rental in which I've ever stayed! Though truly within the treetops, its coziness and warmth are graced with plenty of light and a welcoming combination of simplicity and comfort. Lisa's friendliness and responsiveness enhanced my stay, and her creative vision is evident in small artistic touches that complement the natural setting. I felt so at home that I honestly didn't want to leave, and can't wait to return . . . . In the meantime grazie mille, Lisa, for a way-too-short but nonetheless rejuvenating stay.

Cute spacious treehouse!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa was great! This place was larger than expected and had kitchen amenities we didn’t expect either. It was in a great location for checking out Buxton and Hatteras! The wind was blowing pretty strong that night so being up in the trees you could definitely feel the wind but it kept us safe through the night!

We enjoyed the extra touches Lisa had as well. She had some soap provided in case you forgot some. And some silverware and plates available which was helpful because we decided to get take out instead of dining out so those came in handy for sure!

Lisa was very attentive as well, anything we needed (even food recommendations!) she was there to help, or responded to our texts very quickly!

Overall a great stay and we will be back!!

Thanks again!

Quiet, peaceful stay with a view!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best places we have stayed at. Lisa and her roomate were very gracious hosts and still happily accommodated us while a nor'easter storm was going on. The place was clean, beautiful, and very quiet. We greatly appreciate all the privacy and would love to come back for another stay.
