It has gated, secured access - so you should feel safe. Th cabin is called the LAKE TAWAKONI TREE HOUSE because it is elevated (on 2nd floor) and is surrounded by trees. The decor is rustic, complete with a wall paneled in reclaimed wood and a wood burning stove. You'll feel as if you stepped back in time. A 600 square foot deck provides plenty of room for relaxing.

                                                          John A.

                                                          We had a ball, plenty of room and privacy for my family. We docked our boat in the back yard and hit the lake as often as we liked. The cove we were in was super calm and perfect for the kiddo to kayak and paddle boat. Also the house was really clean and well stocked for us. It made everything nice and easy. It was a perfect weekend cept we got home exhausted, LOL.

                                                          Beautiful property

                                                          I stayed at the Tawakoni Treehouse for about 3 weeks while working in the area. The home is nicely equipped and very comfortable. The setting is very quiet and secure. The owners are great people and very easy to work with. I have already made arrangements to stay again when I return for work. A great place to stay.

                                                          Great property

                                                          Emily M.

                                                          We loved everything about our stay. Owners are on property to provide you with anything you might need. Good location, clean and family friendly.

                                                          You will feel right at home

                                                          Ben M.

                                                          The host and hostess are amazing as is the place you are staying. You will feel secure as the drive has a coded gate. Don't have to worry about things in your vehicle. The tree house has a great interior. Everything is clean and ready for your stay. No wifi allowed us to unplug and enjoy our trip. They have directtv and a lot of movies to enjoy with the family. A lot of games and even kayaks are provided if you wish to use them. The grill and fire pit are great accessories. Being right next to the water allowed me to get some fishing in. My family and I will defiantly be back in the future. Thanks for an awesome experience, looking forward to returning.
