About Please e-mail Owner for a quick response

The owner, Angela grew up in Central Illinois on a farm. The Rustic Treehouse walls are decorated with many of the antiques from her families farm and her Grandparent's farm. One wall and the kitchen island wall are covered in old barn wood out of a barn in Illinois. The Family Barn was destroyed by a tornado in 1984 and the door hanging on the wall is from that barn along with the chicken house window. The chicken coup hanging over the kitchen doorway is also from the family chicken house where many an eggs were collected. These are just a few of the special touches added to the house by Angela who treasures her families heritage.

Why Please e-mail Owner for a quick response chose Coldspring

We bought The Rustic Treehouse as an investment. However we found ourselves going there every weekend to do repair so we could turn it around quickly. We found ourselves napping and really relaxing once we saw the deck and trees that surround the house. We would get our projects/repairs completed and we felt like we had been on a long relaxing weekend and ready to go back to work on Monday. We've had the house 10 years and we still enjoy it today, just without all the projects.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the large deck on the back of the house and the trees that surround it! There's nothing like having dinner on the deck and hearing the birds sing, seeing the trees sway and hearing the boats go by. Even when it rains we love to take naps on the leather sofa's upstairs with a good movie playing (even though we may not be watching it). The house has a relaxing, cozy feel that makes you want to stay and enjoy the great outdoors!

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a great family vacation home then this is the place. The house was wonderful and if the grandkids couldn't find me they soon knew to look on the deck to find me relaxing while watching the birds and crazy squirrels eatting out of the bird feeder! All the little extras to make it a totally enjoyable family vacation for us right down to the snowcone maker and the darling little ice cream cone bowls to put them in. The kids loved the "hunt" they had for more games...every closet, cabinet, shelf and drawer seemed to have more toys for them to discover and play with. They loved the riding toys that made the bad weather times fun (and it rained everyday). Even the 3+ hours we were without electricity was enjoyable as we took the kids down to play under the house on the paved area. On our evening stolls around the neighborhood we enjoyed seeing all the deer. We met the neighbors on both sides of us who gave us pointers on where to fish and where the best place was to ski and swim. We sandwiched a lot of wonderful memories in between the thunder and lightning shows and had an absolutely great time at the Rustic Treehouse.

This lakehouse was all that it said it was online. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners provided great customer service. We loved watching the birds, squirrels, deer and all the wildlife while sitting outside the balcony. We enjoyed our stay at the Rustic Treehouse and we will definitely be back in the future!

Beautiful, Relaxing and VERY Clean!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this beautiful lake home with another family for the Labor Day weekend. The Rustic Treehouse was perfect! The homeowners really did think of every little detail from dish soap to garbage bags and were VERY pleasant. Angela was wonderful!

The adults enjoyed the large outdoor deck and the children enjoyed the upstairs gameroom filled with toys, large TV and a great library of movies! The children LOVED the zip line!!! Plenty of space for the 8 of us and VERY CLEAN! The weather was not what we had hoped for that weekend however we made the best of it. We were able to take a ride to the pool for a short swim and enjoyed the sights from the marina while the children fed the ducks.

Our families live in the Houston area and this was a perfect way to get a way from the big city. Great way to relax.

Highly recommend!
