Tree House Bungalow


For overnight guests who would enjoy the unique experience of 'sleeping in the trees,' the Tree House Bungalow (family friendly - no one under the age of 6 permitted) at Turpentine Creek is the perfect escapade.


Situated near one of our smaller habitat areas, the Tree House Bungalow is built on stilts, is about 15' from the ground, and is reached via a stairway up to the wraparound deck. It is secluded in a grove of trees, but a view of cats is readily available from the back and one side of the deck; a view of the scenery is available from the front and other side.


Although very small, it offers a full-sized refrigerator and stove, plus a sink, microwave oven, and coffee maker on the main floor, which also contains a small table/booth and a clicker sofa. A cable TV is mounted near the ceiling in one corner, which can be viewed from all parts of the interior. The view outside is open to the windows on three sides.


Tucked under the eaves are two single-size sleeping pallets, which are accessible via the drop-down staircase. Guests need to be aware that the staircase will need to be returned to its position in order to open the clicker sofa on the 'main floor.' The small bathroom includes a shower stall, but no full tub.


This fun and quaint structure is the perfect escape for those who enjoy cozy comfort and the unique experience of sleeping near the treetops. It is just the right thing for young couples and those with older children having an adventuresome spirit (because of its structure and location, we cannot allow children under the age of 5).


As with all of the accommodations at Turpentine Creek, part of the appeal of an overnight stay is hearing the lions and tigers calling to each other throughout the night and waking to the quiet magic of big cats starting their new day.
