“Different kind of luxury,” offered at The Mohicans newest treehouse

From the open road to the campground, Airstream's iconic, Ohio-built trailers are among the most stylish camper options on the market.

Now, The Mohicans Treehouse Resort and Wedding Venue wants you to enjoy the Airstream experience like you've never seen it before—25 feet off the ground.

Built from a 31-foot re-purposed 1978 Airstream trailer, the "Silver Bullet" is the latest in the resort's lineup of luxurious treetop cabins. Equipped with black walnut flooring, recycled barn siding walls, indoor and outdoor showers, a skylight and a sauna, this cabin mixes the old with the new by blending vintage materials with the aluminum details of the classic aerodynamic trailer. 

"This is something I've thought about doing for a long time," The Mohicans owner Kevin Mooney said in a statement. "A few years ago, Airstreams were considered the ultimate in camping luxury. My other treehouses were built with luxury features, like hardwood walls and trim, black walnut flooring, cherry ceilings, ornate windows and quality furnishings. The Airstream offers a different kind of luxury."

Those interested in reserving this or one of The Mohicans other spaces can contact (740) 599-9030 or [email protected] for pricing and availability.
