About the Owner

As our 3 children have grown, we have enjoyed many wonderful adventures in the mountains, skiing or hiking. We fell in love with Powder Horn mountain in 2008 and when the opportunity arose we were delighted to be able to buy The Tree Haus. We look forward to making more memories and are happy to be able to share it with others. We hope you will enjoy all the fun and tranquility here as much as we always have.

Just a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Tree Haus for four days/five nights, and we had an absolutely wonderful experience. The owners are total pros at this, and sent tons of helpful information out before our arrival. We knew what to do, how to get there, as well as information about what to do in the area. She called me before our arrival, and kept me updated on work they were doing on the mountain that could affect us. I love lists and organization, and being our first time renting a home, this was the perfect experience for me.

Our children(14, 8, 6) fell in love with the house right away. Being from Florida, anything with stairs is a novel experience, but then there were the games, foosball table, and bunk beds!! We all had our own rooms, bathrooms, and even different floors for the different ages. I never once heard 'I'm bored', and they went into mourning when we left.

Our party of five had plenty of room and we were never crowded. We say deer from the balcony and enjoyed dinner on the deck or at the dining room table. The kitchen had all the things we needed, and all we needed to bring was food and our personal items. The house was very clean and well maintained. It was definitely furnished with comfort in mind.

Powder Horn Mountain has many activities to enjoy. We spend two whole days just exploring the community: the pool, hiking (which is really cool and has different levels), little Sliding rock, etc. The house is only 20 min +/- from a grocery store, and we took day trips to Grandfather mountain and the Linville Gorge area.

The house we went to in the next area was only one story, was much smaller, and had an open floor plan. It was nice, but we all missed the Tree Haus right away. I can't recommend this house and these owners enough. I really hope we get the chance to go back, and I know this was a vacation my kids won't soon forget.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you step inside the Tree Haus you know you've found a special place. The atmosphere is very inviting, comfortable, and relaxing. It's the kind of place that makes you want to take off your shoes and stay a while. ☺ The Davis' have truly created a home away from home. From the fully stocked kitchen of any appliance, pot, pan, or dish you can think of to use to the books, games, puzzles, and movies you might want to entertain yourself or your family with. The picturesque view from the multiple decks call you outside with a cool drink in the evening or with a hot cup of coffee early in the morning.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at the Tree Haus. After a family dinner at the large dining room table we stayed up late playing board games. We spent the next day fishing down at the lake. The kids caught several small fish but the highlight was catching a 26 inch catfish!!

Our long weekend wasn't nearly long enough! Before we left we were already discussing plans of when we could return.

The Tree Haus is the perfect place to unplug and unwind from our too busy, too hectic lives.

amazing house in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here at this cabin for a weekend wedding a few weekends ago. It was absolutely wonderful! My other friends who had rented hotel rooms and another cabin were jealous of the luxurious space I had here. It was nice and peaceful, and I wish I had more time to spend up there. I will be renting again in the future!

Great house and great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this house. It was exactly what we were looking for. It was clean, convenient to the neighborhood center, with plenty of space. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Powder Horn Mountain is a wonderful retreat overall, and this is a nice place within it. I definitely recommend this house as a calm, homey, affordable option for families and friend groups looking for a get-away-from-it-all place that still is in the middle of a good community with clubhouse, trails, pool, lake, etc.

Excellent Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and wish it was longer. The Tree Haus was an excellent venue for our vacation. It is very quiet in a location that is within a nature setting. It is fully equipped with everything we could have asked for including a coffee maker, DVDs, board games, trail maps, and pots/pans/plates, etc. The owners are extremely responsive and helpful. We hope to get the chance to visit again soon.

Tree Haus during the summer

  • 4 of 5


- Quiet and far enough away from city life while still being only a 30+min drive away from downtown Boone

- large (three stories!) with foosball table, board games and cable/dvd player for late night family movies. Quite ideal for kids of all ages (I work in pediatrics) even our infant daughter.

- nice hiking trails all around (easy to moderate)

- close proximity to lake (fishing permitted), creek and communal lodge that has a pool, pool tables and ping pong tables. Very friendly atmosphere!

- affordable

- owners are VERY welcoming and do a fantastic job at making the check-in a check-out as idiot proof as possible. Thank you!


- a little tricky to get to (but very detailed instructions from owners make this less of an issue)

- closer to other houses then expected, but far enough away to allow for personal privacy

- in the thicket of the woods, so not a great view of mountains, but easily a short drive from the parkway

Over-all: Very good experience! Would certainly recommend for family's or couples looking for romantic get-away

If you are looking for a quiet place to escape the Summer heat; to enjoy the Changing of the Fall Leaves or Winter Mountain Views; a place to meet friends & family; a place full of adventures and

wonderful day trips .... The Tree Haus in the North Carolina High Country has it all!

Here is a Quote from MSN City Guides article: 'America's 10 Best Outdoor Towns' regarding Boone: 'The tallest mountain in the East lies not in Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine but near Boone, North Carolina. It's 6,684-foot Mount Mitchell, a centerpiece of the Pisgah National Forest and Blue Ridge Mountains, whose valleys hide hip

little hiking towns like this one. Appalachian State University attracts outdoorsy students to Boone, where you're as likely to find a latte (Espresso News) as a low-key country restaurant with fried chicken (Daniel Boone Inn). Paddlers hit the Nolichucky and French

Broad Rivers for class III and IV rapids (Mountain Adventure Guides, Erwin, Tenn.) while mountain bikers wheel along the 18-Mile Ride (Magic Cycles). There's even skiing here at Sugar Mountain Ski Resort

and a handful of other small resorts. For a classic adventure, tackle the 40-mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail that runs through here; even in the summer, temperatures remain refreshingly cool.'
