Guest
It was a girls getaway! Had an amazing stay. The treehouse is absolutely beautiful. Very clean and had all the things we needed. We started with a beautiful walk around the grounds. Then enjoyed the cozy treehouse while enjoying our snacks with a good movie. Later we enjoyed a great winter fire in their very nice fire pit located a short distance from the treehouse. Very well lit pathways make it easy to enjoy a nighttime walk not to mention how pretty it lit up the grounds! We highly recommend staying here. Thank you so much to the staff for a great stay!!

Respite from civilization
A weekend away in the woods, what a pleasure. A group of us, family and friends, took the weekend at the Treehouse to celebrate two milestone birthdays, and the experience was memorable. There were six of us, five adults and a child, and there was room enough for all, although I would recommend for two or four as ideal. Clean, large windows with great views, beautifully thought out. We spotted a small herd of deer strolling by in the morning, enjoyed a walk down to the Grand River. Management was responsive when we had a question. Bedding was very comfortable. Kitchen utensils and cookware provided, although we could have used a pot to warm up our homemade tomato soup. I would like to return in warmer seasons when we could spend more time enjoying the many outdoor features of firepits and grills and a hammock under the trees. Highly recommended.

Vista ionia
Everything was great except the wifi Tree Vistas Response: Thanks for your review. We identified that we had one guest site running at both 2.4 and 5GHz. If a device for example is not 5 GHz capable it may connect and get stuck. To correct this issue we now have 2 unique guest channels, one for each. MI Tree Vistas Guest 2 GHz and MI Tree Vistas Guest 5 GHz. Both channels have the same password to easily access.

Great place
Great place! Very peaceful and quiet. Place is tiny but beautiful

Rheanna - January 1st, 2023
New Years Eve stay
We had so much fun with our family at your Tree house. Everything was very nice. The beds were very comfortable. We loved exploring the grounds and the kids loved the hammock. The one thing I would suggest is shades on the windows so that there is an option to block out the pathway lights at night and the sunlight in the morning. We will definitely suggest your Tree house to our friends and family. Thank you!

Perfect Winter Escape!
I’ve had my eye on a treehouse rental for a few years, but the closest ones to us in SE Michigan were southern Ohio and booked almost a year out. I was so excited to hear about Tree Vistas, less than a two hour drive from Metro Detroit! The website pics are completely accurate—the house was extremely clean and smelled like fresh pine! The heat worked really well. The three rolls of toilet paper, roll of paper towel, and single garbage bag provided were enough for four people for a three night stay. There is a Dollar General within ten minutes. Meijer within 15 for any major items needed. There was plenty of firewood provided even with us having a fire going daily. There was a lot more down by the fire pit at the river, too. Loved the pull out couch that made a great comfy space for family games. I was nervous about the water smell based on another review (and am generally not a fan of well-water), but there was no smell at all! Plenty of hot water. Washer and dryer worked well. I did bring a little white noise machine for sleeping. Bring some dish soap. Hot plate worked great. We enjoyed the Alibi and Four Friars for dinners, Sozo for coffee, and had fun at the local bowling alley. Lots of wildlife to be seen. Enjoyed looking at animal tracks in the snow. The lack of window covering at night made this city girl a little uneasy at first, but you realize that you can’t see much when you’re outside because of the angle and height of the house. You can turn the shower glass either clear or frosted. Bring boots. 2-3 nights is perfect to get the experience. Not sure what long list of check out instructions another reviewer was referring to; we found it pretty basic. Would love to come back and see the property in the other seasons! Book this place today before word gets out!

Brenton - December 11th, 2022
Awesome Weekend!
What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. Great property, really unique and upscale treehouse, comfy beds, and a beautiful property. My wife, our 4 little kids, and I had a blast. We’ll definitey be coming back!

Kost - December 3rd, 2022
Charming
Everything was very clean and the treehouse was beautiful! Enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon!!

Carol - November 26th, 2022
Wonderful escape!
The tree house is an amazing escape. It is so clean and well kept. A few miles outside of Ionia, a charming little town, Wingding Springs is the perfect way to escape your to do list, your umbrella me bond with your phone/computer, if even for one night. Wonderful hiking trails and a great view of the Grand River. Highly recommend. I will book again.

Patricia - November 23rd, 2022
Beautiful setting!
Loved it!! Comfortable and clean. Only issue was spotty internet. We walked the trail and ate at some good restaurants : )

Kimberley - November 20th, 2022
Winter Wonderland!
We loved our time at the winding springs treehouse. We were there during the November snowstorm and stayed warm and cozy. It was the perfect getaway for our family. We were able to relax and unwind before the holiday season kicked off. The woods are beautiful, especially when snowcovered. We were able to see deer. It was magical.

Robert - November 18th, 2022
Tree House
This was one of the most beautiful spots that we have ever stayed. At first, we were disappointed because could only secure a reservation in November, missing out on the chance to hike, ride bikes, etc. Then, we got heavy snowfall while there. The view outside was exceptional during the evening and overnight. The tree house is beautiful in design & layout, surrounded by a thick forest. A great spot.

Dave - November 17th, 2022
Great place
Beautiful place. The property is absolutely awesome. I used it, to get engaged.

Jennifer - November 8th, 2022
Nature retreat
Absolutely exceeded our expectations!! We all felt like kids in a treehouse that we could only imagine building and enjoying! Can’t wait to return!!! Only problem was the password for the internet didn’t seem to work but really that was such a minor problem and really helped us to disconnect even more!!

Teri - November 16th, 2022
Relaxing!!!
Needs comphy chairs on inside porch, and up in bedroom. Direction for electronics (shower or TV).

Greg - November 14th, 2022
Honeymoon Weekend
The treehouse was a wonderful place to spend our honeymoon weekend! We loved the tranquility & secluded wooded area. Previous person reviewing on Google did not like the path lights, we thought they were a great addition for night time walking. The master bedroom views are awesome! A great addition would be a pair of robes, as other luxury locations we have visited have provided. Very pleasant experience…would love to return in the summer! Feedback: would suggest a property map & additional marked trials in the woods, salt & pepper and fragrance free pillows. Bed was extremely comfortable, fireplace was a nice touch and we enjoyed the fire pit & swing. Heat was very good & easy to control. Clean & cozy! :)

Lisa - November 12th, 2022
Great Family Getaway
Our family stayed for 3 nights in November and had the best time. It is so peaceful and the views from everywhere are breathtaking. Had a little struggle figuring out the ductless hvac unit and the water was a little Sulphury but otherwise we absolutely loved it. The stream running through the property and laying in the hammock were my favorite things. We'll be back for sure ❤

Regina - November 7th, 2022
Treehouse Adventure
There was an issue that was resolved. The owners responded to me with fairness, kindness, and understanding. This was a unique experience! The Treehouse was a great way to have a memorable mother/daughters getaway! Tree Vistas Response - We are sorry you experienced a power outage that affected West Michigan, but happy you still had an enjoyable visit!

Beth - October 27th, 2022
Beyond our expectations
This is simply a gorgeous place. Everything is so well thought out. The workmanship on the treehouse is beautiful. It was snug and warm. The setting is beautiful. There are lovely views from each room. The architectural details (like the floor to ceiling windows and the round wall in the bedroom) are stunning. We plan to return and have already told several people about. our experience. Thank you.

David - November 5th, 2022
Beautiful Place
My wife and I had an amazing stay, and loved the personal touches that were an added surprise! I highly recommend the tree house to everyone and we can't wait to come back again. (We found 4 of the chipmunk/squirrel carvings hidden about)

J. Wright. - October 30th, 2022
Quiet get-away
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Winding Springs Treehouse. It was a very peaceful place; clean, quiet, and just the right amount of room. The bed on the main floor was comfortable, and the view from every window was great!

Mary - October 31st, 2022
Lovely and charming
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Winding Springs! We appreciated the thoughtful touches, such as the portable game table, coffee, and plentiful firewood, although we did not have a campfire. The lodge itself is beautiful and very comfortable. It was wonderful waking up with the view of the woods and spring outside the window, and I was treated to the sight of a fat squirrel scrambling down a tree just outside the shower! Looking forward to return visits and having the opportunity to explore more of the trails.

Jacqueline - October 15th, 2022
A Dream
Our stay at Tree Vistas was an absolute dream. The tree house was clean, warm and cozy. The handwritten note was a nice touch to the surprise birthday getaway I planned for my husband. The grounds were stunning, and we loved hearing the sound of the creek while enjoying the fire outside. We can’t wait to come again!

Terri - October 19th, 2022
Beautiful place.
Love the quality of the furnishings and unique architecture. Grounds were lovely but due to the weather we were unable to truly enjoy the area. Would recommend having a kitchen towel to be able to fully dry the dishes. Otherwise it was a wonderful experience. Would like to return in better weather someday. Tree Vistas response: We do have drying towels in the treehouse and appreciate your feedback and visit.

Sara - October 18th, 2022
Great, comfortable get away
My husband and two young kids and I had a fantastic time. The treehouse was cozy, comfortable and charming. We loved the views from every angle and easy access to the forest, river, fire ring and walking paths. We are avid campers and hikers and thoroughly enjoyed the ease and comforts the tree house offered. We'll be back again!

Stephanie - October 16th, 2022
Truly a special place
The treehouse and the property are incredibly beautiful. My family enjoyed exploring and spending time together here. We saw many deer on the path to the river. While at the campfire at night next to the treehouse, a coyote kept howling very close to us. It was just a cool experience to stay here and this place is really special.

Kathy - October 12th, 2022
Great title. Describes what it is. A beautiful house in the trees
A very relaxing time in a lovely environment. Very clean. Weather was great. Had a wonderful time. A few suggestions: A small waste basket up stairs, A small stool to reach cups, a card table for games, perhaps a hair dryer. All in all it was wonderful. Would definitely come again. Tree Vistas Response: thank you for all the suggestions, we have added them all to the Treehouse.

Kristen - October 9th, 2022
Great Weekend Retreat
My fiance and I enjoyed our time here. It was extremely peaceful and serene. The beauty of the treehouse was incredible. There was so much detail and use of space. Waking up to looking right out those big windows in the morning was a great way to start the day. Sitting out on the swing, listening to the stream and the chipmunks was really relaxing. We are going to make this a yearly getaway.

Robbie - October 8th, 2022
Adventure in the woods
Had a great time- and shared pictures that will ultimately lead to more bookings for you. Thought you could have use a storage shelf or two- a bigger table and a tv in the master bedroom (but having DOSH TV out there was impressive). Overall, a unique experience..thanks

Webb - October 5th, 2022
Unique
Outdoorsy yet many conveniences. Loved the campfires both at the site and down by the river. Wished we could stay longer but will be back!

Randy - September 30th, 2022
50 year anniversary stay
The treehouse Vista is located in a very quiet and serene area. It was a fun and unique way to spend our 50th anniversary. It is a bit costly for a one night stay with all the fees. Even though it says it will sleep 6 we would suggest no more than 4 as it would be to crowded. Suggest bringing your own drinking water as water has a very high sulfur content. For the cost it would be nice if owners provided a couple of bottles of water. Could also use some storage space to place suitcases. Tree Vistas Response: thank you for the review and suggestions. We have added a water softener to address the sulfur issue.

Duane - September 19th, 2022
Wonderful Experience
This tree was was outstanding and over and above what we could have expected . The walking trails were great and perfect time of year

David - September 16th, 2022
Awesome place!
This was our first time staying and we will absolutely do it again! So quiet and peaceful, a great way to get away and relax. The location is perfect as the creek flows just below the treehouse, so it’s great to just sit outside and listen to the water and nature. The only constructive feedback would be to provide one additional sign near the entrance and/or parking area to indicate where the Grand River is located as this was a bit confusing for us when we first arrived. Tree Vistas Response: thank you for the review and suggestions. We have added both signs to help guests better navigate the property.

Teresa - September 15th, 2022
2 day stay
Really loved the house and grounds. Painstaking detail in all the woodwork was lovely. Stairs going to the Creek were dangerous. A handrail would help a lot. We are older and noticeable to us. Wonderful idea, wish you continued success.

This past week Steve and I celebrated our 43rd wedding Anniversary. First off thank you for all your shout outs.❤️. As many understand , life gets so busy, we either don’t have time or we don’t make time to stop, relax and breath. Take time to enjoy the moment , Gods natural beauty, even if just for a simple weekend. Well this weekend we did just that. We rented and stayed at the Vista tree house just outside Ionia. It’s beautiful , peaceful and an amazing place to relax, regroup and spend some quality time with family, friends whomever. WE will definitely be back. I can’t say enough about this wonderful place to retreat. Look for your self❤️❤️. Go to TREE VISTAS, Winding Spring Tree House

Turtle snoozing but who would want to....
Each step of the way was positive from booking to saying good bye. Greg was one of the gracious hosts I have ever met. Always aiming to please. I was so surprised of so much detail on the grounds. Solar lighting for safety and beautiful plantings along each step of the way. So glad we walked to the river where was another fire pit and grilling station for a fish fry. The tree house was so cool, especially at night. With two or more people it can get a bit tight but remember your in a TREE HOUSE!

SM - October 24th, 2022
Thank you
Our family had a lovely stay in the Winding Springs Treehouse. We enjoyed exploring nature, family games, and all of the thoughtful details of the house. Thank you for making this beautiful space available for us to enjoy.

Melissa - September 2nd, 2022
Great vacation
My family had a great time. The description is exactly correct with amenities. The laturn lit trail at night is beautiful.

Terry - August 29th, 2022
One night
A beautiful place and location! There were connectivity issues with internet but otherwise was a wonderful night. Tree Vistas response: we have improved the Wifi and connectivity to the Treehouse, but it's in the woods, so expect there may be interruptions or challenges with reception.

Kelly - August 28th, 2022
Peaceful getaway
Beautiful, secluded property with only a short drive into town. The grounds around the treehouse are well cared for and inviting. The treehouse itself is clean, quaint and well supplied. We really enjoyed our stay!

Stacie - August 24th, 2022
Amazing
What a fantastic and peaceful spot. The treehouse itself is cozy, unique and perfect. The property is just right with firepits, hammock, swing and the amazing little brook running through. The attention to detail with the little décor everywhere and the easy to follow signage along the nature walk to the river. The additional picnic spot as the river was so lovely. Not having hardly any reception/cell phone service was tricky but, nice for a full excuse to unplug. Maybe a future treehouse could include a hot tub!

Amanda - August 21st, 2022
Amazing
Perfect! Everything about this place is perfect! It’s a nice little getaway. We are planning on booking again!

Andrew - August 21st, 2022
Weekend getaway - relaxation
If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, look no further. This treehouse provides all the comforts of home, in a very serene setting. Open the windows, sit on the deck, or around the campfire and simply relax to the sound of the creek and wildlife. If you have ever listened to nature sounds as a way of getting to sleep, this location is the real-life version. The treehouse itself is inspirational. It is open, spacious, inviting, clean, up to date, and comfortable. In summary, this trip was just what we wanted. Time away from the hustle and bustle of city life for some true peace and relaxation. Mission accomplished!!

Sara - August 19th, 2022

Phenomenal Experience
Everything about Winding Springs is exquisite! The home's craftsmanship is unparalleled. You can soend an entire day discoering and appreciating all the details. The hosts have put so much thought and care into the guest experience, right down to the local coffee and handmade soaps. The tree house and grounds are immaculate. The experience lives up to and exceeds the website description. Thank you for making this place available to others; it's a must visit for those seeking tranquility and connection with nature.
