Being the adventurer I am the term "tree house" caught my attention when I did a Google search of "places to stay close to the AT" So I said to my soon to be wife, "Babe how would you like to stay in a tree house for our honeymoon?!?" This got her attention just as quickly as it did mine. So we proceeded to the Fire Mountain website to investigate such an interesting claim. After browsing around the site looking at the various accommodations and debating on tree house or cabin we decided to go with the tree house and what a great decision it was! I knew from my reading that the "tree house" was not actually built in a tree but was so named because of it being level with the tree tops giving the feel that we were in the trees. The room wasn't more than a king size bed and a nice sized bathroom, and closet. That didn't bother us at all because there was too much exploring to be done to need anything more during the day. We had the place to ourselves for the week so it was very quite. The views on top of FM were spectacular morning and evening, we both loved watching the fog bank roll in across the valley in the morning and the beautiful sunset in the evening! The owners were very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and made more than a few good suggestions of places to eat and explore. The only negative my wife and I have is that it was tough being early risers because coffee and breakfast were not served until 8:30-9am, however, one of the owners was so kind as to bring us our own coffee maker to our room for us to have coffee when got up. Because of the late breakfast we ended up eating out so we could get an earlier start to our day's adventure. Needless to say this did not affect our stay at FM! We are already considering a return trip for our first anniversary. Bottom line, I don't think I could have found a better place for our honeymoon in the mountains.
