Bird’s-Eye View In a Rustic Retreat at Saratoga Springs Treehouse Villas at Walt Disney World Resort

Written by Disney_Parks_Blog on March 28, 2015. Posted in Disney

As part of our new “Room with A View” series, we’re heading into the woods for a special look at our “over the treetop” accommodations at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort Spa. Perched 10 feet off the ground in a lush landscape, sit the beloved Treehouse Villas, part of the Disney Vacation Club. I treasure the peaceful stillness of the landscape and the tranquil views of the Sassagoula River. It takes you to a quiet place and makes you feel like you are a hundred miles from the theme parks, when you are actually just a boat ride away from Downtown Disney. There are 60 rustic, home away-from-homes with lots of privacy and extra space ideal if you’re traveling with a large family, or have an extended stay. And who doesn’t love the idea of sleeping in a treehouse? I was so psyched when they opened in 2009, I took my family there for a weekend getaway. Imagine staying at a lakeside cabin in an upstate New York state park – albeit a fancy cabin with four TVs and granite counters. The experience is a nice pause from the hectic pace of daily life.

Inside the three-bedroom villas (photos and video from villa 7026), earth-tone colors, wood accents and natural light streaming in through floor-to-ceiling windows complement the rustic retreat. Nature is woven in the artwork and furniture in creative ways — like a tree branch as the base for a lamp, leafy pillows and a family-size wooden kitchen table, bench and chairs. A Hidden Mickey can be spotted in an end table created by three tree stumps. All the treehouses have two guestrooms with two queen-size beds each, and a room for the kids with bunk beds. There’s also a full kitchen in case you want to cook, contemporary amenities and a nice-size living area, which really makes it feel like home. The oversized porch is another gem and the ideal place to kick back, watch the sunset and take in the amazing view.

People talk about wanting to live in the castle. Me, I could happily live here in good ol’ Villa 7026.

So good. Really enjoyed this. Thanks!

Hmmm… I thought the two bedroom had ONE bed in them, NOT two as stated in this article…???

Miranda from FL on March 27th, 2015 at 8:50 pm

Maragaret, you are right. There is only 1 queen sized bed per bedroom in the first 2 rooms, and the then the twin size bunks in the 3rd room. The villa also has a queen size sleeper sofa and a twin size sleeper chair in the living room. The room sleeps 9 and an infant.

Can you get a reservation at the treehouses if you’re not a DVC member?

Looking to start your very own Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration pin collection? Pin enthusiasts, collectors and traders will find dazzling new starter sets, trading accessories (lanyards, lanyard medals, a lanyard pouch, trading bag), mystery packs, collector’s packs as well as open and limited edition pins, boxed sets, framed sets and more. My own personal tip for you, make sure you get at least one of the Mickey Mouse ‘60’ logo pins.

These dazzling diamond shaped pins will release bi-monthly, beginning in May and feature stained glass and a hinge that opens to reveal beloved characters and attractions.

Looking for a fun night at home? Invite your friends over for game night and surprise them by playing the Pin Trading Board Game, which takes you along the Pixie Dust Path as you celebrate attractions, films and the magic of the Disneyland Resort. The limited edition pin trading board game comes complete with game token pins/markers (Mickey Mouse, Aurora and the Genie) and a spinner. But you can always add more sparkle to your collection with an additional token set and completer pins. Game on!

That’s all I can share, for now, but there is definitely more headed your way.

Are you ready for some pin trading fun?

Jennifer, is Sunset Pointe still accessible? That is where I got engaged – and my wife and I stop there every visit. It’s our favorite spot in Disney!
