On the outside, it looks like a rustic, old-school treehouse; but on the inside, it packs a lot of features that validate the saying ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’. It has a 4K smart TV, an outdoor hot tub perched on the deck, a Keurig coffee maker for your caffeine needs, and a refrigerator to keep things as chill as you feel while at the treehouse.
