Spread the love

Sleep among the treetops during a magical stay in the rustic Old Pine Treehouse at the Mohicans. If staying overnight in a treehouse has been a longtime childhood dream, it is time to cross it off your bucket list.

The Mohicans Treehouse Resort and Wedding Venue offer nine extraordinary treehouses you can book for an unplugged escape in the heart of the forest.

After our prior visit to the Tin Shed, we couldn’t wait to come back to experience the beauty of the Old Pine.

We want to thank Mohican Treehouse Resort for sponsoring this post. As always, my opinions are my own.

Where Is The Mohican Treehouse Resort

The Mohicans Treehouse Resort is in the heart of Ohio’s Mohican Valley. The resort sits on 77 acres of privately owned land only minutes from the Mohican Memorial State Forest.

The Mohican State Park is in Loudonville, Ohio. It is between Columbus and Cleveland, roughly 25 minutes from I-71.

Ohio treehouses are a great bucket list item.

TIP: Upon booking, the resort will give you detailed instructions on how to get to your accommodations. Be sure to print them out or save them on your phone because the area’s cell phone service is poor.

What Is The Mohicans Treehouse Resort

The Mohicans Treehouse Resort and Wedding Venue gives guests the unique experience of staying overnight in one of their signature treehouses. With an onsite event venue, it is a popular destination for weddings, reunions, and life celebrations.

The Mohicans offer more than treehouses for guests to overnight in! Guests can relax in one of their cozy cabins or rent one of their country homes for larger groups.

The Farmhouse is tucked away along the rolling country hillside providing families with a peaceful retreat.

What To Expect At The Old Pine Treehouse

Old Pine is a luxury treehouse nestled in a serene pine forest away from the hustle and bustle of life. Spend your time drinking coffee on a private balcony with sweeping views of the canopy. Curl up with a book in the cozy loft or indulge in copious amounts of s’mores around a bonfire.

Built in 2015, the treehouse was constructed with 100% reclaimed materials giving it an antique 1800s feel. Vintage accents include 100-year-old barn siding, hand-hewn beams, and a sliding bedroom barn door. As a luxury treehouse, guests will have a fabulous indoor bathroom/shower, deluxe linens, and a well-stocked kitchenette.

The treehouse includes a living room, bathroom, first-floor bedroom (1 queen bed), upstairs loft  (queen bed), small eating area, kitchenette, and outdoor shower (warm weather only). One of my favorite spots was the wrap-around porch, while my daughter loved the suspension bridge that led to the treehouse.

Important: Check-out is before 11:00 am. There is NO internet/wifi available in the Cabins and Treehouses

Getting To The Old Pine Treehouse

Follow the directions the Mohicans give to avoid any possible construction and detours. Once on the Mohicans property, you will see a little gravel parking space between two trees that reads, “Old Pine Parking”.

Note that you cannot see the treehouse from the parking spot.

After you have parked, a gravel trail takes you into the forest and to the treehouse. The path to the treehouse is not lit, so bring a flashlight if walking at night. There are small solar lights to help guide you.

Planning Tip: If you don’t feel like carrying all your items individually down a long gravel trail and then up two flights of stairs, I recommend bringing a collapsible wagon. I foolishly just pulled mine out of the car, thinking I wouldn’t need it for this particular trip; I was wrong!

PRO TIP: PACK LIGHT!! Remember that you must carry your luggage up two flights of stairs and over the bridge. Pack only the necessities in a backpack and a small cooler to make it easier to haul.

A Look Inside The Old Pine Treehouse

Upon opening the front door, guests are ushered into the intimate living room with a rustic seating nook. A ladder leads to a bedroom loft overlooking the living room with a queen-size bed.

Venture into the charming bedroom on the first floor, which turns into a stargazing delight at night with a large skylight and vast picture window. There is a door that leads out from the bedroom to the balcony.

Step into the kitchen, where the cabinets were constructed out of reused, 100-year-old barn wood with accent rough-cut cherry doors and counters.  The kitchen was stocked with all the necessities needed to make meals. There is a mini-fridge, toaster oven, sink, hot plate for cooking, cookware, dishes, and cutlery. There is a microwave, a coffee maker, a teapot, and wine glasses.

You can venture outside from the kitchen to the balcony and the outdoor shower. While the outdoor shower is seasonal, bathing outside in the treetops is a unique experience.

Pro Tip: I recommend easy meals that can be heated in the microwave, a charcuterie board, or sandwiches.

What To Bring To The Old Pine Treehouse

Outside of the regular clothing and toiletries, here are a few items to consider bringing along for your Old Pine Treehouse Rental.

  • DVDs. There is a TV in the treehouse; however, cable and satellite TV are unavailable.
  • FOOD! While coffee and coffee filters are provided complimentary, don’t forget additional food items such as creamer, sugar, spices, etc. Plan out your meals before arriving, as there are limited resturants nearby.
  • ICE and a way to store it. There is no ice maker in the treehouse nor a place to go and get ice. My recommendation: Depending on your stay’s duration, consider bringing a small cooler dedicated to ice.
  • Drinks. The treehouse has running water, but pack a few beverages if you fancy something other than tap water.
  • Firewood: The Treehouse does have a firepit and a picnic table. S’more supplies are always a must.
  • Things to Grill: The Old Pine does have a grill. Bring charcoal, foil, and all the fixings for a great BBQ.
  • Rainy Day Activities. Pack a game or two, a good book, a pack of cards, a puzzle, a magazine, and toys for kids in case of rain.

Final Thoughts

Sleeping amongst the trees is a novel experience that all ages can appreciate. While many will shy away from a price tag of over $400 a night, consider splitting it with another couple.

Another money-saving option is to follow the Mohicans on social media and sign up for a newsletter to receive last-minute discounts. There are times you can score a treehouse at nearly half off!

The kids adored staying in the treehouse. However, plan on scheduling activities or bringing activities because kids are not as interested in enjoying the peaceful serenity of the forest canopy as adults are. We would make them retreat to their beds for quiet reading time, so the adults could rest on the balcony and reset after a busy afternoon.

We would definitely do another treehouse adventure with Mohicans! With so many different treehouses, I want to stay in them all!

Things To Do Near The Mohican Treehouse Resort

Mohican State Forest

A highlight of any visit to the Mohicans Treehouse Resort is a visit to the Mohican State Forest. Hike along the gorge, climb the fire tower, then relax by a calming creek near the covered bridge.

Lyons Falls

A few of our favorite hikes include Clear Fork Gorge, Lyon’s Falls, and the Mohican State Scenic River. Note: Not all of these hikes are little kid-friendly. For little ones, I recommend the Gorge Overlook and The Covered Bridge.

The Mohican State Park is maintained by the Ohio DNR, which provides a map highlighting bridle trails, mountain biking trails, and hiking trails.

Mohican Adventures

Float down the river in a tube, drive go-carts or play a round of mini-golf at Mohican Adventures. Mohican Adventures is your one-stop shop for family fun in the Mohicans. Test your skills at their aerial course before hopping on a 7-mile canoe trip!

Tip: Save money by purchasing one of the packages for a whole day of family fun!

Go Swimming At Mohican Lodge

The Mohican State Park Lodge offers day passes for guests to use their amenities which include their outdoor and indoor pool. We spent the day at the pool, grabbed lunch in their dining room, and returned to the treehouse!

Little Buckeye Museum

If the weather is not cooperating, take a drive into downtown Mansfield for the Little Buckeye Children’s Museum. Aimed at children eight and under, this museum offers hours of imaginative play. Shop in a grocery store, play at the water table, or go on stage to create your own broadway show!

Explore Downtown Mansfield

A great day trip is to explore downtown Mansfield. Grab a cold beer at the Phoenix Brewing Company, throw axes at the Axe Social Lounge, then enjoy a delicious dinner at Hudson and Essex. If you have time take a stroll through Kingwood Gardens.

Pleasant Hill Lake

Pleasant Hill Lake offers a beach and a marina for swimming, boating, and waterskiing. Stop by the Pleasant Hill Dam for a great overlook. It is also a trailhead for Lyon Falls.

Sunny Slope Winery

Enjoy handcrafted wines, live music, and an incredible General Store and Deli at Sunny Slope Winery. My recommendation, make this one of the first things you do, then stock the farmhouse or your Treehouse with wine and goodies from the General Store!
