About Shelly Byrne

I dreamed of a treehouse since I was 10 years old. I had spent that summer in the woods with my siblings pretending we had treehouses. We made the moss carpet and big rocks our furniture.

Shelly Byrne purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Shelly Byrne chose Stonewall

When we started our dream company in 2007 (EarthJOY Tree Adventures) We knew we wanted to offer our tree climbers out of town an entire experience.

We took Pete Nelson's treehouse worskhop in 2009. Yet never could find the piece of property or it was always out of our reach financially. When we saw him on Animal Planet we knew it was time. We sent in an application and when we were chosen I called Dad to ask if we could build it on the farm. He said YES

What makes this cabin unique

A Pete Nelson Treehouse -The Kentucky Climbers Cottage

Completely isolated on 200 acres. Beautiful hiking trails that lead to a large trillium tenstile hammock you climb up into

Book a guided tree climb.

Take a 15 min ride to Augusta Ky (home to George Clooney) Visit his mom's antique shop Nina's, eat at the Irish Pub, or take a ferry ride over Ohio River and eat at the Boat Tavern right on the river.

Maysville Historical downtown is only 15 mins from the tree house. You can also do the Maysville zipline or book a horse back ride with Wild Equestrian.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a beautiful tree house and unique lodging! Off the grid but not too far on our road trip from Colorado to PA!

Unique retreat in the trees

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful treehouse in Kentucky. Awake to hear the birds singing and lounge in the hammock or cook breakfast on the grill. Return to nature in style on the 200 acre property. Take a hike to a large three person hammock or throw rocks in the stream while cows graze nearby. This is secluded, but that's why your here right? You can also drive into nearby Augusta and walk along the Ohio River.

Owner's Response: David it was great to hear you loved the tree house, the hammock, and its seclusion. We especially loved how you slowed down time to observe a cow grazing as you tossed rocks in the creek bed. That is what it is about! We also want guests to know you can book a guided tree climb or visit nearby cities that are only 15 min drive if you want social interaction. Augusta is really cool in that you can browse Nina's antique shop and talk with her. (George Clooney's mom) Also a favorite is to take the Augusta Ferry across the Ohio river and take a right into Ripley and eat on the river at the Boat Tavern. Afterwards you can circle into a bridge that crosses back into Maysville. Either take a zipline tour in Maysville, visit dowtown pub or head back to the tree house. There is also horse back riding at Wildfire Equestrian 4 miles from tree house. You will need to call ahead.

Great Escape to Mother Nature!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful escape from the daily grind. Breathing in the fresh air and enjoying nature up close was truly refreshing and invigorating. We especially enjoyed building a fire in the wood stove and playing cards and board games. It rained all night so was the best nights' sleep I've had in ages.
