Stayed for three nights in the Maple Oak treehouse at Timber Ridge with my wife and daughter last week. The treehouse is beautiful and set near several of the main attractions of Shawnee Nat'l Forest (Garden of the Gods, Rim Rock, Pounds Hollow, etc...). The owners (Marty and Elizabeth) are great people and gave us helpful suggestions of what to see and do around the area. My 10yr old daughter and I took an archery lesson with Marty which went so well, I think my daughter has developed a love for it! We would definitely come back to lovely Timber Ridge and the surrounding area. Off the beaten path, but that's what we were looking for. Well worth it!!
