This Is My Kind Of Tree House

E’Terra Samara Eco Resort

Imagine staying in a luxurious 1 bedroom tree house villa nestled in the Bruce Peninsula forest, part of the UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve on the shores of beautiful Georgian Bay. Sounds idyllic?

Laurie Adams of E’Terra Eco Resort is working with architect Tye Farrow to create the Samara Project – 12 villas suspended from the treetops offering accommodations in harmony with nature. Every Canadian knows what a maple samara is – those winged seeds that flutter down from the trees every spring. That’s what inspired the design of these beautiful structures. The sleeping area of the tree house is located in the “seed’ section, while the open air living area is located in the “wing.”

These designs are not only beautiful and respectful of nature, but highly technical as well. A structural skeleton, like those used to build wooden sailing craft, is covered by fine fabric coated with fiberglass and self-cleaning titanium dioxide, creating walls that are light and luminous. Each tree house hugs the tree instead of being nailed directly to it, suspended from a collar and cable system inspired by the umbrella-like yukitsuri ropes which support the black pine tree branches in Japan’s Kenrokuen Garden. The units are prefabricated off-site in 3 pieces, to minimize the impact of construction on the forest.

The most exciting part is the stunning interiors. Couldn’t you just imagine the sweet dreams you would have sleeping in these beauties?

    Crazy! It looks like a boat haul from above. I think the deck is an especially nice touch. Have you seen those round tree forts in BC?

      I love those round tree forts in BC! I’d give anything to have a chance to stay in one of these cool tree houses.
