Business Description

This is the only treehouse lodging in the country accessible to clients only by canoe. Centrally located between the cities of Charleston, Charlotte, Savannah & Atlanta, this convenient overnight eco-resort stays booked the 8 months a year it’s open. Conveniently run and managed by 2 people with a part-time 3rd helper, it has had no advertising budget for 5 years, as social media, magazine articles, television specials and repeat business bring in the clients. Having started and operated this fun business with wonderful clientele for 28 years, we are ready to retire and sell it, as our children have already developed their own successful careers. www.canoesc.com
