Spent 3 nights with my significant other and our dog in the smaller treehouse cabin. The outpost was quiet and laid back. The property is gorgeous and we had fun day adventures at nearby attractions (rim rock, garden of the gods, metropolis 1 hour away).
The treehouse was fully furnished and we had everything we needed. Although the price may seem a little steep, we saved money by cooking all our meals, and had a much better experience than staying at a traditional holiday inn.
The treehouse may not be for everyone, those with bad hips/knees may not appreciate the stair climb up and the ladder to the loft. But for those willing to make the trip it is very much worth it.
If you're headed to the area, even just for a night, this is most definitely the place to stay!
