Episode 64: Alpaca Treehouse
Are you ready for a new year on the Ingles Open Road with more exciting and new places to explore? Kicking off the new year, minutes from downtown Atlanta, Chris Bainbridge found an eccentric escape full of beauty, wonder, and spellbinding appeal. Just watch out for the spit.
Alpaca Treehouse Atlanta, the dream of Kara and Kate, was initially called a “she shed,” a place to entertain friends, drink wine, and hang out. But treehouses have a way of bringing people together. Today, they invite everyone not only to play but stay. As they say in one of Bainbridge’s favorite movies, “If you build it, they will come.”
Like Bainbridge and his brother, you probably built your first treehouse when you were in grade school. You probably used a few nails, a little rope, and childhood dreams to hold it together, and it was awesome. It was your sanctuary, a pirate ship, a castle, a frontier fort, or simply an adventure in a tree. Then one day, it came crashing down with half the neighborhood kids in it, and mom and dad helped you build a new one that was more structurally sound.
Well, the Alpaca Treehouse Atlanta is no mere treehouse. It’s a house in a tree, and it’s magical. Nestled in a bamboo forest and sparkling with whimsy, the Alpaca Treehouse is next level. It’s crafted with reclaimed architectural antiques, luxury beds and linens, power, AC and heat, marble baths, and a giant couch of a swing. Talk about cozy!
There’s more to this place than the fantastic structure. There are also the adorable four-legged inhabitants.
The Llama/Alpaca Experience gives you a short walk around the property and an hour-long tour of this magical urban oasis. You can get personal with the rescued Fuzz Krew of llamas and alpacas and learn more about their rescue stories. At the end of the tour, you can feed the llamas and alpacas baby carrots and take photos.
If you’re in the mood to try something different, check out llama yoga, held in the gorgeous, reclaimed Bamboo Barn. Llama yoga is taught by expert instructors and supervised by these four-legged furry friends, like Figgy and sometimes Queen Dali Llama or little Llyra.
Additionally, you can stay in the Llama Stay Farm Cottage and the Luxury Llama Cottage. For couples looking for a unique, memorable, and romantic wedding experience, you’re sure to find exactly that and more here.
Whether you’re trying to escape the city, explore Atlanta from someplace unexpected, or have a fairytale wedding, Alpaca Treehouse Atlanta is the place for you. Find them online at AlpacaTreehouse.com.
You can also see them on World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals on Netflix.
