We loved it. Bob was a great host, the tree-house was peaceful and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful long weekend. Quaint cabin with wonderful nautical theme, the owner is a United States Navy Veteran! Lots of nature and hiking trails. Used the gas grill for dinner and breakfasts. Outside second story shower, nothing compared to looking up through the trees at stars! Very close to Nauvoo, Ft. Madison and Keokuk. We took that triangle trip. Antique mall in Keokuk was great!

Paris and London were co-hosts and fun to be around! The Atlanta Yeti

Unique experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one night in May and had a great time. The treehouse is amazing from the structure to the decor. There is plenty of room to roam around and enjoy the outdoors, and it's very close to the town of Nauvoo and things to do there.

Charming weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Friendly host ( and dogs), well maintained, unique property. Great get-away for our family of four, plus our dog. Brought books, games and wine. The interior space was delightful and cozy-crummy weather went almost unnoticed!

Amazing treehouse!

  • 5 of 5

Bob (with London & Paris' help) was extremely welcoming and quite the craftsman! He was very helpful and created a great place to escape from the city from. The treehouse was adorable, well-built, and quite cozy. We'll definitely be back! Perhaps in the summer. :)

Serene and beautiful! What a terrific spot away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

  • 5 of 5

Bob and his dogs, London and Paris, were all very hospitable. What a unique experience! The Treehouse was just what we were looking for - whimsical and fun. Our three children not only survived being "off the grid," but they kept busy doing things with one another. Our family of five fit into the space comfortably.

In Love.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have picked a more perfect place to unwind and unplug. Everything about the captains quarters is perfect! From the decor to the cozy feel and outdoor shower. We can't wait to visit this hidden gem again. Thank you Bob for creating such a beautiful escape.
