North Carolina Treehouse on a Vegetarian Retreat Center

This is a truly unique vacation treehouse! Not only was it built for the Treehouse Masters TV show, but now it stands as a special spiritual retreat where you can only stay if you feel called to — and only if write an essay explaining your “innermost heart yearning” for your retreat at Celesterra.

The property is strictly vegetarian-only, and inside the treehouse, you’ll find a little kitchen perfect for cooking up appropriate meals. There’s a wood-burning stove to keep you toasty in inclement weather, and you can climb a ladder to the loft bed in the trees.

The Treehouse is on a Vegetarian Retreat in Canton, North Carolina

It almost looks like it’s levitating, doesn’t it?

In the cool months, light the woodstove for a cozy retreat.

Those wide plank floors are lovely.

The kitchen is only for cooking vegetarian meals.

It looks so peaceful in there, doesn’t it?

There’s no running water in the treehouse itself, but you have access to the main house bathroom.

Here is the ladder to the loft.

Another perspective.

The cozy but spacious sleeping loft.

The elevated deck is the perfect spot to start the day with some hot tea, coffee, and some positive thoughts. 🙂

Look at that awesome custom-built bench!

Another view of the bench.

The incredible crew who built the treehouse.

The surrounding property is yours to enjoy.

It’s an all-season oasis.

As you can see, it’s a very private location.

Nearby luxury bathroom for your use.

Lovely tile shower.

Celesterra is a 230 sq. ft. sacred space that floats between earth and sky about 15 feet off of the ground. Built by the television show Treehouse Masters, it is a beautiful, serene space that is cozy, warm and inviting. PLEASE NOTE: All food and cooking are strictly vegetarian with no garlic or onions (so the next guests might be able to appreciate the space as well). No meat on the land at all, please.

Celesterra features a beautiful living area with wood stove and leather club chairs, a dining table, fully stocked kitchenette and a bathroom with a composting toilet. IT HAS NO RUNNING WATER, but glorious spring water is supplied for drinking, washing dishes and cleaning hands. There is a full bathroom available in the main house exclusively for your use (about a three minute walk – try a walking meditation back and forth each day!). It features a beautiful walk-in shower and flushing toilet and sink with hot and cold water.

      I’m not criticising your choice in meals, but vegetarian or vegan, of which I am one, provides all the nutrition one needs.
      Where do we get our protein? Same place as cows, sheep etc.

    Well, my motto is the animals eat the veggies, then I eat the animals, but I’d be willing to change my diet to stay in this lovely tree house for a while. It does look like a great getaway, and everything is beautifully done! I love the loft, and the views are gorgeous. Nice build. Lovely home!

      I’m with you, but the lack of garlic and onions is what really got me haha! I’m pretty sure they’re part of nearly every meal I cook!

    Hello! I love this peaceful getaway-everything about it! Go without garlic, onion and meat-Can do! Do you have a radio or can I bring one if not-for weather and music. Would love to rent in winter. Do you have any openings for Christmas? What would be the cost for 4-5 days? Tina

    Well, isn’t that something…. just a couple-three decades ago, I was wondering if I could experiment doing that ‘vegantarianist life-style’ stuff.
    And, then, this pops-up.
    Irregardless, I applaud ‘the vegantarianist crowd’ for trying it on for size.
    Maybe if I had multiple ruminate stomachs, maybe I could vegantarianist.
    But I don’t, so I won’t.
