Are you ready for a vacation? This treehouse resort in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is the perfect getaway!

Treehouse Grove at Norton Creek Resort gives guests the opportunity to enjoy nature in a secluded setting. The resort requires a minimum 2-night stay. Each room averages $249-400 a night depending on the season you’re looking to book your stay in. Children are welcome to the resort with parental supervision.

“Everybody loves Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge, and The Great Smoky Mountains, and we got to talking and said what’s missing? Everybody goes to a cabin, it’s fun, but then we thought treehouses,” owner Joseph Ayres told WKRN News.

In addition, Pete Nelson of Treehouse Masters on Animal Planet designed the new resort. “He actually designed all the treehouses, followed our concept, and came up with each individual treehouse,” Ayres revealed to WVLT. “He was involved in concept planning [and] picking out the trees he wanted to use.”


Inside the Treehouses

There are eight treehouses on the property that sleep 2-4 guests depending on which lodge you choose. Each treehouse boasts one bedroom and a loft. This isn’t a typical camping experience, it has most modern luxuries. Each rental has a television, Wifi, heating, air conditioning, and a private viewing deck. You’ll also have your very own kitchenette with a refrigerator.

Each treehouse features a bathroom with the comforts of home. You’ll have amenities such as a toilet, sink, and shower. The resort will also give you bath towels, washcloths, shampoo, soap, makeup removal cloths, and hairdryer.


The Location

Surprisingly, the Gatlinburg resort is only an hour outside of Knoxville. Additionally, downtown Pigeon Forge is just fifteen minutes away.

Similarly, the property is just as majestic as each particular treehouse. The property is specifically nestled on 500 acres of forest near the Great Smoky Mountains. Furthermore, Norton Creek flows through the property.

Besides walking trails, guests can use the fire pit for a nice evening around the fire. You can also spend the day fishing at Norton Creek, which is one of the top-rated trout streams in the southeast.
