Many people come to see the Big Treehouse.....

You might want to also. Here are the details!

Please remember, it is only my hobby; and my grandmother Mary Gift chooses to share it. The Big Treehouse is shown by guided tour only. It is not a childrens' playground. In fact, it was created by an adult with adults in mind. It is much like the deck built on the back of your home.

Tours are by appointment only. If you would like to contact the Treehouse for a tour, please call my grandmother Mary Gift at (641) 752-2946 or email her below.

 

TREEHOUSE VISITS ARE DURING FAIR WEATHER DAYS
