Located in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, Rivers Edge Treehouse Resort is as popular with couples as it is with families. Here, families can enjoy a treehouse hotel complete with kitchenettes, gas grills, and even free Wi-Fi! Other amenities include a horsehoe pit, corn hole, fire pits (S’mores!), picnic tables and fishing gear for rent.

We had a great stay even though it rained for 2 days. The cabin was very nice. Extremely comfortable bed! Didn’t get to use the fire pit area or the deck due to the rain but having a BBQ put was a plus!! Will go back in the Spring!
Reserved 2 treehouses this time to celebrate my eldest sister's 70th birthday. Hosts were extremely accomodating to make sure this event went smoothly - even picked up and delivered a beautiful cake, plates, etc. and put into my sister's treehouse as a surprise while we were all out touring the area! We definitely plan to stay here again.
Places visited this time:
Moonshiner Steakhouse - great food and service
Topoco Lodge - great food and atmosphere
Yellow Creek Falls - bring walking stick for trail but not a far walk
Nantahala National Forest
Deals Gap Motorcycle Resort (got the t-shirt)
Switzerland Café and General Store in Switzerland, NC
and last but not least - The Tail of the Dragon (so very hard to think of doing more than once per lifetime ...)
