You’re not just experiencing incredible luxury at the Canopy Tree House and an escape from the mundane when you stay at the Canopy tree house cabin, you’re participating in a carbon-neutral experiment in sustainability. All of our tree houses have been built with efficiency at the forefront of consideration.  With Double walls, 400% efficient heat pumps, and thorough insulation, your tree house will stay warm in the winter cold and cool in the summer heat.  Plus all our properties are solar-powered, making them carbon neutral in addition to being so compact and efficient that they barely sip power.


Your incredible tree house escape awaits for spring, summer, autumn, or winter, in beautiful southern Maine. You will stay aloft with the trees, nestled in a forest that has been growing wild for most of a century. The property is located in Springvale, which is inland and centrally located. Being able to travel East to West in this area helps you avoid most traffic when visiting any of the premier destinations of Southern Maine (mostly traveling North to South). Whether you want to go to one of Maine’s pristine beaches in Ogunquit, Wells, or Old Orchard, the exciting Portland Restaurant scene, or browse the astonishing assortment of antique stores in the area, you can find many ways to spend your days away from the busier world in our Local’s Guide to Maine.

We had a wonderful stay at Purposely Lost!  We stayed two nights at the new Fern Hollow Hobbit House.  The house itself is beautiful and so cozy.  The outdoor space is absolutely perfect!  We loved the large front patio with the firepit and private hot tub. Overlooking the woods and lake was stunning!  The location is great, close enough to town that you can just pop to the store and back, but far enough out that it feels extremely secluded and private.  You can see two of the treehouses from the Hobbit House, but there's plenty of space and trees in between to not hinder your privacy at all.  We had the best weekend getaway and cannot wait to come back again!  Highly recommend!

My family and I (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed 2 nights in the Canopy Treehouse last month and had a lovely time. The property was in a great location, but hidden just outside. You felt like you were in your own little world. We had tons to do between the treehouse, the hot tub and the pond.
Everything was clean and well maintained. And, I have an eye on that hobbit hole in the future. Thoughtful amenities

I stayed for 3 days and nights in the Canopy Treehouse. It was awesome! It was very clean and had all the amenities you would need. It was very private, no one around. Great place for relaxation. The pond was gorgeous. I went solo and felt very safe. Management was a phone call away if needed and very responsive. Must go there to experience it. It was a 2 bedroom treehouse but had plenty of space. Did not feel cramped at all. I highly recommend this tree house.  I plan on returning in the future.
