Treehouse Grove's second phase of luxury treehouses offer views of the Smokies with all the comforts of home.

GATLINBURG, Tenn. — As the leaves start to change, you may be looking for a weekend getaway in the mountains. why not opt for a treehouse instead of the traditional cabin?

Treehouse Grove at Norton Creek in Gatlinburg is now offering even more reservations with nature at the forefront.

Eight new treehouses now available for booking have a picturesque view of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. 

While the first set of treehouses are down by the water, the "mountain view" treehouses are up more on an elevation.

The second phase of places to stay have groups and families in mind. Six to 10 people can sleep comfortably in each treehouse. There are also options for meeting areas, porch sits and hot tub soaks.

"Every treehouse comes equipped with all the creature comforts of home," Pete Nelson, the treehouse master and designer of Treehouse Grove said.

Inside each unit, you will find a kitchen complete with all the usual appliances, silverware, pots and pans, flatware and spices.

WiFi, plus heating and air units will make your stay more comfortable from the moment you step through the door.

Each treehouse is also equipped with a bathroom and full size standup shower. 

There are even accessible options for those who may be in a wheelchair or have a harder time getting around.

Each area is different, with unique names, setups and hardware holding the unit up in the trees.

It took the team with Nelson Treehouse about two years to complete phase two. The pandemic delayed production a little bit, but Treehouse Grove is planning to add another expansion in the coming years to the property for phase three of the luxury experience.
