Even walking right by, you might miss this special find.

I'd only seen one image of this place before, and the poster intentionally put the wrong region it was located in, to throw people off.  I was in the state looking for it last year, but didn't have any luck.  This year I'm back and finally found it!  Set far back from the road among huge, reaching, Live Oak trees, is this abandoned Victorian style tree house.

From what I could tell, the area has been abandoned for about 13 years.  This appeared to be a house built for children.  There was a small living area downstairs, side room, and two upper floors big enough for small beds.

At the top was a loft with bunk beds in the window.  Below, the trees had grown enough to begin pushing through the planks in the foundation.

Nearby, another large building, maybe some kind of inn.  The doors and windows covered in spiderwebs.

 

Inside, there were still piles of firewood waiting to be burned.

I was thrilled to find this place at last.  It's always a race against time to capture these spots before nature, vandals, or new development takes them away.  I was worried that after over a year, I'd never be able to add it to my collection.

Sorry Michael (and others I missed that have long forgotten their comment), I don't recall the exact location. It took me a couple years of wandering to discover it.

Where is this located?
Does it still stand?
Would love to film some media here if it is.

Yes Carl, that's how tree houses work :)

The trees are very obviously older than thirteen years. Was the house built around them?
