    OK TREEHOUSE

    - Private IN CITY eco-friendly TREEHOUSE camp stay in Certified Wildlife Garden.

    - Recharge, Reset or Create in our 100% upcycled, freegan, woman built handcrafted Treehouse! Made entirely of reclaimed lumber and supplies with a tin roof in Oklahoma City.

    * No Cleaning Fees!

    - OK Treehouse is also booked by searching Ok treehouse Airbnb and is a tiny but mighty installation art experience!

    The space

    Simple restful Artisan retreat for ONE (or two snugglers ) in a Treehouse located in Full Shade Certified Wildlife Habitat Garden.

    **The upper Treehouse Treetop sleeping level is a SMALL one-room space only 64 sq. feet interior plus the upper deck. There is one double bed SET WITH ONLY SHEETS and one blanket plus full electricity which allows for very comfortable sleeping and just hanging out. There is a superfan for warm weather and a small electric heater for cooler evenings…there is NO central air conditioning or heat! The walls do not have insulation in them. Air flows in and out with randomness.

    **The Flipside ROOT level area of the TREEHOUSE is much larger with decks Outside Open To The Elements. There is a covered bench area, outside table and chairs, outside lounge chair, outdoor kitchenette (sink, two-burner stove, and basic cooking supplies) and there is a community art project in progress for u to add to if u wish. There is also a CEDAR Outdoor Shower and camping toilet area. (Hot steamy water when temps are above freezing only. For sure NOT in JanFebMarch which is our only winter here in Oklahoma)

    See notes in pictures for more details.

    **There is a large fire pit that can be lit After Dark, firewood to burn, string lights that fill the yard, Hula hoops, and an adult-sized see-saw!

    **Treehouse is located in a residential neighborhood and backs up to a pond where wildlife critters can be viewed as long as you never go over there not ever. Goose ❤Swan love story happening over there.

    **If you are looking for a unique space that is peaceful and quiet (or being part of a creative community) you will enjoy staying with us and we will enjoy hosting you! Our family of artists also lives on the property and we are very respectful of your privacy while also being on hand in case you might need anything else.

    The space is filled with an eclectic array of tiny oddities left behind by fellow travelers. Bring one of your to add to the collection!

    **The root level decks can not be seen from our house. We can not see into the TREEHOUSE. Private entrance through the side gate into our backyard is where the TREEHOUSE is located.

    **Created in 2015, OK Treehouse has grown and changed into what you see today. All is 100% recycled/upcycled: (except for the bed cuz that's gross!) The lumber, paints, screws, tin roof, yard art, kitchen, windows, fabrics, and doors sent to the curb for the trash man, left behind to fill another landfill. All recreated into what it is today. Even all the landscaping!

    ** Please make sure that you are physically capable of using steep ladder stairs repeatedly. The entire Area is USE AT YOUR OWN RISK! By booking here you have acknowledged this!

    ** The nighttime is the right time! Check-in is not until 6 PM and check-out is at 10 AM.. . If you are traveling from far away and would like to leave your bag here until check-in time, we can do that.

    If you are in need of more than one night's stay: You must book nights Separately and not be in the Treehouse during the daytime hours of 10am to 6pm ( but yes u can leave all ur things)

    **No cigarette smoking in the upper treetop level of Treehouse. No parties! Quiet always. No pets as BabyKitty loves and lives here and just might hang out with you the entire time. Please no service animals as BabyKitty has PTSD dog issues.

    **Firepits don't light when it has been raining. No there is not a TV. Leaves aren't on trees in the winter. Ladybugs, Bees, and other crawlie or flying things are beautiful creatures. My garden is a polinator-friendly Certified Wildlife Habitat. No, It does not rain inside the treehouse. Yes, we are 5 blocks off of Rt 66 and you will hear the highway cuz we are right in the middle of the city- especially when there are no leaves on the trees. Ducks at the neighbor's pond quack all night long, random dogs bark, singing birds will wake you in the morning and coolers only have food and ice in them if you bring that all yourself.

    ** If you like the outdoors, mother nature, and all of her creatures – then this is for you. If the sight of a bug has you running and screaming – this is not for you. If you need an air-tight temperature-controlled space – this is not for you. If you want to slow down, breathe in the fresh air – then this is for you.

    **Thanks so much for helping support our mission of Reducing, Recycling, and Recreating the world by providing a low-cost alternative to high-priced stuffy lodging.

    **COVID-19 adjustments: Outdoors seems to be the safest place to be these days when needing to get away. We are excited to make our TREEHOUSE Gardens available for a ONE-NIGHT STAY to folks on route or in need of a simple, affordable and healthy space. There is no one in the Treehouse for a full 8 hours before and after each guest to allow for cleaning and additional air flowability. Dishes for kitchen CAMP cooking are now available at request only and will not be stored outside unless wanted. To continue offering no additional cleaning fees, before leaving your stay guests will be required to take out their own trash including their camping toilet bag. Please bring your own pillow and blanket.

    *** REPEAT: THE BED IS SET WITH ONLY SHEETS and ONE BLANKET NOW> BRING YOUR OWN WARMTH AND PILLOWS!

    (***Premade Cozy Bed Option: available for 10$ cash tip to cover laundry services= 3 pillows and two blankets (plus an electric blanket in winter months) If u would like to do this please let me know when making a reservation. )

    ***Do NOT book here in Jan Feb. March unless u are an avid cold weather outdoor camper! Seriously, check the weather and see if its for u.
