Testimonials~camping, glamping, tree houses and more!

Tree house camp will forever hold a special place in my heart.  It is the home of the Noble Podersosa and the wind that whispers through the pine needles.  A place devoid of traffic noise and smog.  A place where hummingbirds are the only propeller sounds in vicinity, where sunsets and starry skies will shine over you.  Where nature will envelop you and serenade you into slumber. Singing Nail Cabin offers front door access to  a wonderful hiking trail and front seat to sunrises.  Tecolote, Sunrise and the other  tree houses deliver you to tree canopies and the calls of the wild.  Whether you crave austerity and simplicity or a soft mattress,  treehouse camp can deliver gold to any Goldilocks! All the sites hold their spectacular beauty and medicine.  Whether you come to commune with friends or alone, Tree house camp holds the opportunity to reconnect with yourself and nature, the balm we all deserve and crave.

This property was wonderful! It was far enough away from town that it was quiet and the night sky was breathtaking with the clarity of the stars and milky way. But it was close enough that within 20 minutes, you can be in Santa Fe. The host was incredibly kind and showed us around the site and recommended some things for us to do in town (which was awesome). The camp sites are all well taken care of and very clean. I would highly recommend this property and would stay here again. Christiana H.

I loved everything about this place. Its nice to relax and get away from all the noise. Nights are lovely and days are full of wildlife and hikes. I loved that i could bring my canine friend! There is a communal kitchen, to use and clean bathrooms with showers. A hot tub to relax and look out at the stars! I can't wait to visit again. It was completely comfortable and out in the middle of a Forrest. I can't compliment this place enough. It was wonderful. Djinn J

Absolutely beautiful place in the forests of the Sangre De Cristo mountains. Hosts were super nice. We upgraded to a tree house, a pretty minimal structure but saved us from spending time setting up a tent so well worth it. The tree houses have open air windows so you still have the outdoor feel which was great. The icing on the cake is the hot tub which makes the perfect closer to a day of adventuring. Next time I would bring groceries to utilize the awesome open air community kitchen. Sam P.

I enjoyed camping near a pine tree with a soft pine needle bed several feet away from the kitchen. I heard hummingbirds throughout the night and at times looked skyward and saw the stars shimmering brightly. It was a wonderful experience. Oh, and so was a soak in the hot tub early in the morning and a walk with a steward from Columbia with whom I walked into the cool valley where there was a tiny spring. "

Treehouse Camp was so nice, my two dogs and I stayed there twice during our 5-week trip from California to Kansas and back! It's completely charming, with beautiful private sites to set up a tent, or various "treehouse" cabins in different degrees of proximity to the shared bathroom and open kitchen facilities. Even during some transitions as the camp evolves, all was well maintained, organized, and wonderfully welcoming. I can't wait to go back!  Sandra C.

We absolutely LOVED our stay here. Truly, 11 out of 10. We were greeted right upon arrival after a looong day of driving and shown to our site - all of them with stunning views! We felt like we were all alone out there (so idyllic) but with heaps of amenities provided on the property and your hosts only a short walk away. If you're planning a visit to Santa Fe and want a proper "getaway," this is a dream campsite!  Juliana S.

Treehouse Camp was pure heaven! The land is magical, the hosts are too! Alex A.

*****

Such an amazing place! I camped mid-week and it was very quiet - exactly what I needed to clear my head. It is far enough removed from the city that there is minimal ambient light at night, perfect for stargazing. The hosts are kind and passionate about the campground; they have a lot of great ideas and dreams about what Tree House Camp is going to be and I am excited to see things progress in my future visits to Santa Fe. 

The camp kitchen has everything I needed including refrigerators and freezer space. The bathrooms are clean and well-supplied. I will camp here again.  Joshy S.

If i could rate them even higher, I would. My daughters and I LOVED our experience here! The hosts and the site were amazing and exceeded our expectations! Highly, highly recommend Treehouse Camp!!  Laura B

Brad and Ciana are amazing hosts and were very quick to respond to any questions that I had. I stayed 4 nights and was sad to go. The location is perfect for getting into downtown Santa Fe. Only a 20 min ride and you were there. I spent one day just hanging around the camp because there are some nice hikes you can take right from there. The amenities are amazing! I mean full outdoor kitchen, flush toilets and warm showers....it was a perfect set up for my cross country road trip. I would definitely stay there again in a heartbeat and highly recommended if you find yourself in Santa Fe.  Michelle H.

Bobcat Brad and Ciana were the most gracious of hosts! Warm and welcoming and this site is absolutely charming! Great energy! If you’re looking for privacy, whether in a tent or treehouse you’ve got it here. It’s a rustic experience with amenities like a hot tub, showers and a full functioning outdoor kitchen. There are even trails from camp you can explore with breathtaking views!! I can’t say enough about how great of an experience I had here! Brad and Ciana are wonderful and very knowledgeable about the land! I’ll be back for sure! Marla K.

This was my first hipcamp experience, and it exceeded my expectations! Ciana was so wonderful, she met us upon arrival and showed us around the camp and pointed out the trails. The kitchen was awesome to have after cooking over a tiny camp stove. We met some amazing campers there and bonded over the communal campfire, and the evening was quiet, despite there being quite a few campers there. 

I can't wait to come back and visit! Abby E.

Brad and Ciana did everything they could to make sure our stay was awesome. From a personal tour to some sweet check-ins how we were doing. But event more, they also made our stay feel like a fun adventure where we all connected with strangers who felt like old friends. They made communal bonfires and s’mores at night, taught us all how to throw tomahawks and took us for a starlit night hike to point out all the incredible constellations. “Bobcat” Brad is a natural teacher and Ciana is a natural hostess, guide and caregiver…warm as could be she felt like home. We’d definitely stay again, actually can’t wait to! What a great couple and a great place.

Wow, we were blown away by Santa Fe Treehouse Camp! Brad and Ciana were incredibly gracious hosts. They are doing wonderful things with this beautiful property. We pitched a tent, but we're looking forward to staying in a treehouse cabin next time; they are really special. I can't wait to stay again.  Clark N.

Great gem just 7 miles outside of Santa Fe! Would highly recommend those looking to connect with nature for a weekend getaway! Great hosts and good times!  Jeffrey C.

*****

The treehouse camp was amazing! The hosts are friendly, the air is clean, the stars are bright, and the showers are clean. We tented, and the site is nice and secluded. 11/10 would camp here again!      Maggie L.

*****

The Treehouse Cabins are simply amazing- not only that, but the entire property itself is an incredible place to spend time outside and connect with nature. We stayed in one of the treehouse cabins- we used our sleeping bags on the bunk style cots and slept great.

The location is perfectly located outside of Santa Fe, far enough to be in nature but close enough that you're surrounded by lots of activities and things to do.

One of the best parts of the trip was the communal kitchen and fire ring. We had a great time getting to know our fellow campers and our hosts Brad and Ciana.  Alex J.

*****

The hosts were amazing, they made our stay more than comfortable. The night hike with Brad was a great experience, he is very knowledgeable on astronomy and shared fun stories and information that I will definitely remember! The tree house cabins were an exceptional experience and the highlight of our trip to Santa Fe. We recommend to those who are looking for a fun, unique (and comfortable) camping experience with really easy access to the town.

I was blown away by all that Brad and Ciana has to offer at their camp!! They were super hospitable and made us feel very comfortable during our stay. The highlight of our trip was the evening star-gazing hike that Brad lead. He was able to share with us his incredible astronomical knowledge while pointing out a handful of constellations. I highly recommend their Hipcamp to anyone and everyone. We will be back and with a group next time! Thank you “Bobcat” Brad and Ciana!!  Spencer H.

Thank you to Hip Camp for helping me discover this little gem tucked into the red hills above Santa Fe. As I write this review the only sounds are the wind through the pines and the crickets and I couldn’t be more appreciative of this gorgeous peaceful place.

I am a huge fan of Santa Fe. I am not a huge fan of the crowds the prices and the entitlement that surrounds the exploitation of this incredible town. But Brad and Ciana Have a created a peaceful retreat and an emotional and spiritual escape from all that glitter and imitation turquoise down below. The Tree House camp is the perfect escape for groups. It would be incredible for families. And an extremely safe way to travel by yourself as well, It was so great for the first time around with my teenage son and daughter that we had to come back a week later and do it all 

over again.

I love the simplicity of the setup: bare, rustic treehouses, fully stocked mess hall, hot tub and shower facilities invite discussion with fellow campers, intimate political talks around the campfire and morning coffee around sunny tablecloths. Or if you prefer to be completely solo there’s plenty of places to escape to and enjoy the privacy. I myself prefer meeting fellow campers and hearing their stories.

This is a rustic, romantic retreat. If you’re looking for 600 thread count sheets you've got a bring your own. Or you can stay down the red dirt road with the fake turquoise and impossibly priced artwork., I prefer the real deal. I prefer the authentic and waking up to the birds. We will be back! Thank you to Brad and Ciana!  Elizabeth P.

Have been traveling for a month and have camped from North Carolina to Santa Fe (have two more months to go) and the Treehouse Camp has been one of the best spots!! Clean treehouse, awesome communal kitchen and very clean (with hot water) bathrooms. What topped everything were the exceptional hosts Ciara and Bobcat Brad!!

P.S. Also very convenient to Santa Fe. Marco A.

I bailed 2 days early on a public campsite and came here instead. I'm so glad I did! The treehouse cabins are a great value. They're large, clean, and a great place to stay. There were 2 sets of bunk beds and a twin in mine, plus an outlet, a table, and lots of shelves. The communal kitchen was well-stocked. I had a great time roasting s'mores with the other campers. Ciana was super helpful as a host. It's a great location: close to Santa Fe but far enough away that you're in the woods and can see the Milky Way. I'll definitely come back!

Brad and Ciana are wonderful people with great knowledge of the outdoors and a unique environment to camp in!

I would definitely recommend Santa Fe Treehouse Camp to anyone looking to be in nature while still be located fairly close to Santa Fe Plaza (20 mins drive).

Don’t forget to ask Brad about throwing tomahawks and archery practice!  Patrick C.

*****

We had a wonderful stay at Treehouse Camp. We initially booked just 2 nights, but then added another 2 after our first night. The accommodations are simple, but the environment and sense of community were unlike any place I've camped. We had s'mores and campfires most nights, spontaneous community suppers, tomahawk throwing, archery, night walk with stargazing! Most importantly, Santa Fe Treehouse Camp is a space where one can get out into the scenic quiet, while still having 4 walls, a kitchen, and lovely hosts.  Alison E.

*****

Treehouse Camp is a magical place! Amazing views and peaceful. Brad & Ciana are beautiful souls who are lovingly caregiving this land. Outdoor kitchen, fire pits, hiking trails, hot tub and more!  Kriste S.

*****

Great glamping in Santa Fe (only an hour and ten minutes from Albuquerque). There were a few nice surprises at the location. Thanks Bobcat for the activities you set up for the kiddos. Hosts were great.  Lucy S.

*****

Our family likes to stay in unique, fun places off the beaten path whenever possible. What a treat to find the Treehouse Camp! Although she was elbow deep in some painting and remodeling work Ciana kindly greeted us and showed us around the campground.

Treehouse Camp has all the amenities for those who want a little more than “roughing it.” The restrooms and showers were in good, clean shape. The kitchen area had everything you need to prepare great meals - and in a beautiful setting. The cabins were clean, cozy, and comfortable. The screened windows were perfect for letting the cool breeze in while keeping bugs out.

We enjoyed nice campfires both nights we stayed. Explored the trail Ciana

 recommended down to the canyon.

All in all, Treehouse Camp is wonderful. And just a short drive to Santa Fe for those who want to see the local sites but stay outside of town in the nice, cool forest. Would love to go back!

I stayed three nights in one of the Tecolote tree houses, just me and my dog. The site is amazing: secluded, perfect for hiking alone, but absolutely brimming with amenities (fully stocked kitchen, hot water showers with towels, well marked trails, just to name a few). Brad and Ciana have created something really special here. I wish them so much success and can’t wait to come back and see how they grow. Thank you for a perfect stay. Anna L.

*****

What a great weekend! We stayed in a tree house and it felt like staying at summer camp with my kids. Having the kitchen close was great. The camp is very private. We stayed in the cabins closes to bathhouse and that was very convenient. After seeing the other cabins I think we would of liked those as well. You will not go wrong. Brad and Cianna were great! We loved ax throwing and the night hike and the harmonica by the fire. It was a really sweet experience. My kids already want to go back.  Amber G.

*****

Loved our treehouse experience. We pulled together a couple of twin beds to support our queen size air mattress with our heads below the east facing screened windows. Haven’t slept this well in a while, and woke to magical sunrises. Common kitchen offers everything needed to prepare a feast. If you prefer the outdoors over luxury accommodations and pricing, please visit SFTHC!  Chris L.

We really enjoyed our stay at Singing Nail Cabin. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We even had a relaxing hot tub with all the stars shining down on us. There was a hike down to the floor of Apache Canyon rite out the cabin door. I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend The Tree Camp in Santa Fe NM

Marjorie D.

Singing Nail Cabin is a peaceful spot on a secluded hillside. Ciana and Brad are warm and welcoming. We loved staying in this thoughtfully furnished cabin and our hammock overlooking the nearby mountains was a great spot for a morning coffee. Next time we'll plan to stay longer!

Zen House was a fantastic mountain getaway. Beautiful trails and quiet cozy space for us with lots of activities available. The host was welcoming and very helpful. Would definitely recommend!  Jameson R.

*****

The Santa Fe Zen House is quiet and peaceful. No sounds of civilization, just hummingbirds, bees, and soft breezes fluttering tree leaves.

Greg C.

*****

This Zen House was an amazing out of the way find. If you are looking for peace, quiet and tranquility then this will be the spot for you. We went for a romantic get away and the hosts went out of their way to create a space that set the tone. We are already planning on visiting again.

The Zen house is a gorgeous oasis in the mountains outside of Santa Fe. It is a perfect spot to enjoy relaxing and exploring the unique Santa Fe landscape, or as a jumping off point to a day of touring Santa Fe. There is an awesome trail right on the property to go on an adventure and not see a soul. The drive to town is about 20 minutes- it's the perfect blend of being away from it all, while still easily getting into town to see the sites. Ciana was a wonderful host- very responsive and ensured we had a great time!

Alaina C.

*****

The Zen House is a truly amazing place for a scenic, and rugged yet comfortable stay. The views are tremendous and the accommodations are perfect for a connection to nature. 

Will definitely be coming back!

Really a pleasure to spend some quality time in the wilderness, and the Zen House was the perfect fit for us. We've been reminiscing about the trip quite a bit, and already miss the trails, views and the beautiful New Mexico night sky!
