Tree House Resort Opens in Greene County

Posted: Updated: May 8, 2013 06:59 PM EDT

As children, many of us loved hanging out in tree houses, and who says we can't still have a little fun in one as adults?

Eco Green Barn, a new resort in Greene County wants tourists to spend a little time among the branches. It's not your typical tree house - with rickety wood panels and a rope ladder to climb inside. It's set up with everything you need for a slumber up in the trees, including a bed, bathroom and small dining area.

Wednesday, the Greene County tourism council led a tour of the new tree house, located at 224 Mulberry Drive in Stanardsville. It is surrounded by hiking trails, an organic farm and a sauna that is powered almost entirely by the sun.

The owners also offer yoga classes and Indian food cooking lessons. Tony Williams, with Greene County Economic Development, says the tree house is sure to be a hit - and that's good news for everyone.

"When folks come out to stay here they also go and you know, they got to buy gas, they got to go to Walmart and you know buy items all those types of things. We all win when we invite folks that have properties like this invite folks to stay and enjoy the county," Williams said.

The couple that runs the resort is also finishing a barn on the property, with 3 cozy rooms. Right now the barn under construction but in just a few weeks part of it will be transformed into a movie theater.
