Photos inadequate in conveying the charm and character of this enchanting retreat. Great views of the woods, comfortable nooks all around. Fantastic getaway with a gracious host

Captain's Quarters was a cozy retreat.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Captain's Quarters treehouse. It rained while we were there so we didn't do any hiking in the woods. The house had everything we needed during our two night stay. Bob thought of everything.

Sibling Reunion Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property! Bob has really put his heart, soul and imagination into the Ten Acre Treehouses. We had a sibling reunion getaway in the Captain's Quarters and loved every minute of it!

Wonderful, peaceful, private place to spend a few days to unwind from life's hassles.

Beautiful views. Bob was wonderful. Only thing I'd like to see added is an indoor cooking surface.

Peaceful, charming retreat to unplug and reconnect with nature.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful getaway for adults and children. We stayed in the Captains Quarters. The Grandkids loved exploring all the nooks, crannies and secret spaces. My daughter and I enjoyed morning coffee on the decks and bird watching. It is a wonderful place to unplug and enjoy nature. Mr. Hopp was available to answer any questions. While there is much to explore in the immediate area, we were drawn by the prospect of finding geodes, it is equally likely that you will feel compelled to stay put and drink in your surroundings.

What a fun place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed being here. Any concerns or needs we had during our stay were responded to promptly and kindly. So glad this treehouse had AC, we would have suffered without it. With a heat index above 100 most of our stay, I didn't get to explore the 10 acre wood as I would have liked, but our kids did. Thanks Bob for sharing this unique and beautiful place. It's like a cross between glamping and a suite hotel. <3 We are telling all our friends that plan a trip to visit Historic Nauvoo to check it out. We'd not hesitate to come back.
