If you’ve got your eye on a true getaway in the coming weeks, Bolt Farm Treehouse — a five-star wellness resort perched on a mountaintop outside of Chattanooga, TN — should be on your radar. Featured as one of the World’s Most Amazing Vacation Rentals on Netflix, this special spot offers a wide variety of activities and three stunning accommodation options — luxury glamping domes, treehouses, and ethereal mirror cabins. Here’s everything you need to know about this breathtaking mountain escape, its backstory, and how to make the most of its unique amenities.
How It Started
Bolt Farm Treehouse began as a single property in the charming town of Walhalla, SC. Seth Bolt (of the rock band NEEDTOBREATHE) wanted to find the perfect honeymoon destination for himself and his wife Tori, and he ultimately decided to create one himself. Seth and his father lovingly built the flagship treehouse as part of a wedding gift. It didn’t take long for Seth and Tori to realize they had a one-of-a-kind experience on their hands.
“When we realized how magical the experience is and how good it is for the soul, we decided to open it to the public,” explains Seth. “We hoped that other busy people would welcome the invitation to turn off their cell phones and clear their schedules to unlock the magic of distraction-free quality time. We had no idea how many people were craving this type of soul-lifting experience that is 100% offline and 100% real.”
Today, Bolt Farm Treehouse has expanded to a gorgeous mountaintop property in Whitwell, TN. Travelers from around the globe (including notable figures like Carly Pearce, Jessie James Decker, and Eric Decker) flock to the property to experience the same serenity, beauty, and privacy that first inspired Tori and Seth to create Bolt Farm Treehouse.
The Original Honeymoon Treehouse is the ideal getaway for couples looking to reconnect with one another and nature. Featured in Travel & Leisure as one of the “Top Treehouse Hotels in the World,” this property combines luxury and nature — both inside and out. From a furnished kitchenette to high-quality linens, a relaxing outdoor hot tub, and panoramic views everywhere you turn, you have everything you need for an unforgettable stay.
“High above the Tennessee mountains, this enchanted retreat promises an unparalleled experience, where the bond with your partner is deepened amidst the embrace of nature’s finest,” adds Tori.
Also part of the collection of properties is the Friends & Family Treehouse. Just as luxurious as the Original Honeymoon Treehouse, this property is the perfect backdrop for creating memories with loved ones. Accommodating up to six guests, the child-friendly treehouse offers several indoor amenities — from a cozy fireplace to a projector, vinyl records, Wi-Fi, and a Bluetooth speaker. Outside, you’ll find a communal dining area, canopy bed, pizza oven, barbecue, and plenty of spaces to take in views of nature.
“In both treehouses, expect not just a place to stay but an enchanting experience,” explains Tori. “Bolt Farm Treehouse invites you to elevate your ordinary moments to extraordinary heights, surrounded by the wonders of nature and the embrace of modern luxury.”
The Mirror Cabins
The first of their kind in the U.S., Bolt Farm Treehouse’s mirror cabins will have you feeling like you’re a part of the surrounding forest. Both cabins — the Cliffside Mirror Cabin and the Forest Mirror Cabin — sleep up two people and offer the perfect balance of adventure and comfort.
Each cabin’s interior offers a unique and modern Scandinavian design, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, luxurious queen beds, plush robes and slippers, heated floors, and outfitted kitchenettes. Outside each cabin, you’ll find a private patio, hot tub, barbecue, pizza oven, tables and chairs, and a smokeless fire pit.
“Staying in one of our mirror cabins is an unforgettable experience where guests are enveloped in nature’s beauty while enjoying the utmost in comfort and luxury,” Tori tells us. “It’s a place where guests can reconnect with each other and the world around them, creating cherished memories that will last a lifetime.”
The Glamping Domes
For the perfect blend of luxury and romance, stay in Bolt Farm Treehouse’s LUXE Glamping Dome. In addition to sweeping mountaintop views and plenty of space to unwind, amenities include a king-size bed, copper bathtub, propane fireplace, French press coffee maker, and an outdoor canopy bed perfect for stargazing.
The LUXE Dome Max Privacy is very similar, offering the same amenities and luxury but with a bit more privacy. Much like the LUXE Glamping Dome, this is an ideal vacation destination for couples or solo travelers. The property can accommodate up to two people and offers 1,175 square feet of space.
If you require more space, the XL Dome is a child-friendly option that sleeps up to four people. Perfect for small groups of friends or families, this property offers both a king and queen bed, a kitchen equipped with cooking essentials, a propane fireplace, and a private terrace.
“The domes are a one-of-a-kind experience where guests can immerse themselves in nature while enjoying the utmost in comfort and luxury,” adds Tori. “It’s an opportunity to reconnect with loved ones or simply enjoy a romantic escape while surrounded by the beauty of the mountaintop. The accommodations and amenities provided ensure guests have everything they need.”
On-Site Activities + Extras
In addition to luxurious accommodations, Bolt Farm Treehouse also offers a wide variety of on-site activities for guests to enjoy. For example, foodies will love the Private Chef Experience that allows guests to enjoy delicious gourmet meals prepared in the comfort of their treehouse, cabin, or dome.
Other on-site activities include mountaintop yoga classes from Chattanooga Yoga Collective and massages from Mountain Mobile Massage. Thrillseekers will enjoy taking an ATV ride along old mining roads or exploring any of the nearby hiking trails.
If you want to elevate your stay even further, Bolt Farm Treehouse also offers a VIP experience. This package includes luxuries like DIY kits for s’mores and oven-fired pizzas, a bottle of wine, an exclusive candle, a Bolt Farm Treehouse insulated stainless steel coffee mug, and a pre-built campfire. Plus, you also receive $100 off your next stay!
No matter which property you stay in or how you choose to spend your time, a getaway to Bolt Farm Treehouse is guaranteed to be filled with beauty, privacy, and luxury.
