'Turtlecove Treehouse' provides the perfect get away spot and quiet retreat space to rest, relax and rejuvenate. This cozy and comfortable studio apartment sits nestled among the tree tops with a breathtaking view of Grand Lake and the privacy of surrounding woods. The quiet, peaceful cove is perfect for swimming, floating lazily, or simply soaking in the sights and sounds of nature. The surrounding area will fill your senses, whether during a brisk hike or a quiet stroll along the shore.
Our location is beautiful in the fall and winter as well! We have a direct view of winter sunsets and enjoy viewing bald eagles and a variety of wildlife.
The Treehouse has a fully equipped kitchen and gas grill. A shoreline fire pit is available for guest use as well.
The simply furnished, yet modern space provides ample spaciousness and a sense of secluded privacy. You can sit and relax comfortably on the covered deck and watch the birds, turtles, herons, egrets, and the amazing sunsets.
Located in the Zena area near Sweetwater Cove, the space is equally enjoyed as a romantic couple's escape or a girl's getaway weekend.
The Treehouse is easily convertible to a wide open gathering space that is perfect for small group workshops and/or meetings.

About Carol LaRue
Carol and Bill LaRue have lived on this property full time for 10 years. The 'Treehouse' was built as a new separate addition in 2008 for the purpose of sharing the peacefulness and beauty of the location with others. Carol's experience and passion is in providing a variety of integrative wellness services that incorporate yoga, Pilates, meditation and personalized coaching that are offered to guests by appointment. Bill is a life-long nature lover and is a great resource in appreciating the surrounding wildlife and terrain. Our sweet dog Dottie welcomes guests and will often visit you on the deck.
Carol LaRue purchased this Studio in 2008
Why Carol LaRue chose Dennis
We love the healing peacefulness of our property. After using it as a weekend retreat for several years, we made the move here full-time as a conscious, more healthy life style change.
What makes this Studio unique
While we have a view of the main body of Grand Lake, we are protected from a lot of noise and wave action in our quiet cove. Our view of sunsets are unsurpassed, and we love sitting on our deck any time the weather permits.

Nice Property, Wonderful Owners
We had a wonderful weekend away at this beautiful location. Everything needed to make us comfortable was provided, including COFFEE.
Carol was incredibly hospitable, making sure we had everything we needed and answering any questions very quickly, but also giving us all the space and privacy we could have asked for. Carol was great with our 10 year old son, and Dottie the Dog's visits were a welcome addition. (Dottie was also great with our son, who is a dog lover.) Though we had no problem whatsoever with Dottie visiting, Carol did make sure to let us know that she would keep her away if we weren't comfortable.
The bed wasn't our favorite, BUT Carol made sure we were 100% aware of it BEFORE we booked, so it certainly doesn't rate a bad review. We just switched our 10 year old to the bed, we took the futon, and everybody slept well for the remainder of our visit.
The lake is a short trek down the property, with a fire pit that Carol invited us to use between the Treehouse and the dock. We spent a lot of time on the dock, casting a line and just relaxing.
If we decide to go back to Grand Lake, we would certainly check here first. Thank you, again, for a great weekend!
It was a nice place, a little misleading tho
The bed was an air mattress , why would anyone have an air mattress in a rental. Got no sleep. Ached and hurt everywhere after laying on it . The futon sofa wasn't any better. Will not ever go back there. I think they should tell you your bed is an air mattress before you rent
We appreciate your review and comments and we want you to know that we take all reviews to heart and make changes as deemed appropriate for the whole of the guest experience.
Our adjustable Aerobed, sufficiently meets the needs of the majority of people who stay, and some say that they “sleep better than they have in a long time”, while a small few do not. Personal preferences and comfort needs certainly vary among guests, but are a definite consideration in assuring a good fit with our guests.
Relaxing and fun!
This was a great place for my 2 friends and I to have a relaxing, fun girls weekend! I loved that the tree house was right on the water and we were able to swim in the lake. We also drove into town to check out some cool restaurants that were on the lake as well. I would recommend this place to a couple, a small family, or a small group of friends.
A quiet place to relax and regroup!!!!
Carol was amazing!!!!! It's on a quiet cove. We played and fished. Great fun!!!!
Good but airbed disappointment
The location on the lake is wonderfully secluded and quiet. The retreat has great views of the lake. The retreat is modestly furnished but has everything you need. Carol and her husband were kind and dealt with us easily. Our largest disappointment was the queen size bed was an airbed. For two people the bed was not the most comfortable.
Thank you so much for your positive feedback and honesty about the aero bed. It has been a "question mark" in our minds, as some people like it, but some don't.
So peaceful and what a view.
The place is amazing. Right on the lake. Firewood for the firepit was provided. Completely surrounded by beautiful trees. Beautiful views can't be described with words. Carol was so nice and made us feel welcome. Came for peace and quiet and got just that. Definitely will try to book this place in the future.
Onsite integrative wellness coaching with Carol LaRue is available by appointment.
