The Treehouse was such an amazing place to stay. I don't have enough good things to say. Not only is this place is an absolute work of art, but the host's hospitality and communication were second to none. (Thanks again Steven!). This was the last stop on an anniversary trip for us. My wife and I left on such a high because our stay at the Treehouse was so incredible. We'd do it again in a heartbeat.

You must stay at this treehouse! It is absolutely spectacular. If you have a taste for modern architecture or you just want a weekend getaway in the trees then this is the place for you! We left feeling refreshed and renewed. Steven and Chester are some of the best hosts I have ever had on airbnb! They went above and beyond during our stay and offered a list of suggestions full of different restaurants, hikes, and other activities. They are excellent communicators. We can't wait to book with them again and stay at their pondhouse!

Great place to unplug from the real world but also enjoy great food and local shops. Not far from downtown Clayton, this glass treehouse is a dream come true. If you are ever in Georgia, make sure to visit Chester and Steven and their cute little pugs Lola and Alex!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! This Tree House is a truly magical place to stay. Perfect for someone (or a couple) who enjoys the serenity and beauty of nature and architecture combined. The outdoor terrace was my favorite place of all, providing the most picturesque environment for sipping coffee in the morning and having a glass of wine at night. Close to lots of local shops, restaurants, and activities. Steven and Chester are wonderful hosts and took care of us through prompt communication and lots of great suggestions for places to eat and things to do. Would happily return any time!!

Our visit to the mountains was amazing and the location of this Modern Treehouse was perfect to disconnect and reconnect. Steven and Chester couldn't have been better hosts and the information and reviews you read are spot on. They have thought of everything to make this a perfect little getaway - a well decorated and well cared for place, all of the little things included - soap, coffee, bug spray, and everything you need to cook if you want to. We spent our time hiking in GA and NC and eating the amazing food at restaurants Steven and Chester recommended to us in advance. You won't be disappointed!

Magical! The setting is verdant woodland. The Airbnb itself is iconic architecture. I simply loved waking up in the snug glass-sided bedroom to find myself in a private forest. Our hosts were considerate, charming and helpful making suggestions about activities. We enjoyed the relaxation offered by the vast terrace and being serenaded by several species of frog after sundown.
