A quirky treehouse resort climbs to new heights with its fun-filled forts and majestic mountain views.
If your dream home has ever been a treehouse, the new Sanctuary Treehouse Resort in Sevierville, Tennessee likely exceeds even your most fantastical plans.

Here, fun is by design. Every treehouse at this innovative new resort incorporates interactive experiences including slides, bucket pulleys, escape hatches, secret ladders, swings, front doors with speakeasy windows, custom drink chutes to send unopened bottles and cans from the kitchen to the lower porch and several additional surprises.

Even practical elements go beyond the usual. King beds are supported by ropes with queen trundles hidden underneath. Double bunks can be cranked up to reveal a dining area.

treehouse motelPorches are simultaneously havens and playgrounds with swinging chairs, suspended outdoor daybeds, outdoor tubs, rope climbs, big-screen TVs and more. Decks encourage relaxation with wood-burning fireplaces, gas grills, Adirondack chairs and spectacular views.

The vibe is playful, yet every treehouse is packed with thoughtful amenities and conveniences. Edison light fixtures stylishly illuminate the interior. HVAC systems ensure year-round comfort. Kitchenettes are equipped with mini-refrigerators, coffee makers, microwaves and even signature charcuterie boards.

Bathrooms boast custom tile showers, toilets with heated seats and whiskey-barrel sinks. Beds are dressed in luxury linens. A big-screen TV and LED fireplace are visible from nearly every inch inside the treehouse. High-speed internet is standard.

Custom artwork give each unit its individual personality, often with a humorous edge that ranges from the wink-wink to brouhaha variety.

Sanctuary Treehouse ResortBranching Out
The brainchild of husband-and-wife team Amanda and Brian Jensen, the resort currently offers three different types of treehouses: Tree Fort (for up to six guests), Tree Fort Double (same as Tree Fort but with a drawbridge connecting two units to house up to 12 guests) and The Luxe (for couples yet able to accommodate up to four people).

Forts offer a king bed, queen trundle and double bunk. Luxe units ramp up comfort with a king gel cooling mattress, bidet toilet system, copper clawfoot tub, bamboo jetted tile shower, outdoor tub with privacy curtains and other upscale additions.

Located in the Smoky Mountains in Dolly Parton’s hometown, Sanctuary Treehouse Resort will be the world’s largest treehouse resort. The first seven forts opened in the spring of 2022; an additional seven units will open this fall.

Sanctuary Treehouse Resort“Brian and his team built the first phase, but we’ll now hire a construction company to build them more quickly while we focus on amenities,” says Amanda.

As soon as four additional units open in 2024 to reach a total of 18 units, Sanctuary Treehouse Resort will rank as the world’s largest. But its owners aren’t stopping there.

When construction is complete in 2025, a total of 130 treehouses will spread across its 40 scenic acres overlooking two 18-hole golf courses and the Little Pigeon River against a gorgeous mountain backdrop.

Rooted in Fun
The couple first built a treehouse in 2013 for their children. “They played with it for years and we put fun features there,” says Amanda. “When they quit playing with it, we joked about renting it out. We didn’t do that, but we always kicked around the idea. Forty acres near us became available and once we saw how amazing it was, we thought, ‘We gotta buy this!’ This property has been a hidden gem for far too long if you ask us.”

Sanctuary Treehouse Resort hanging bedThe scope of their treehouse resort idea quickly “took on a life of its own,” she says.

The Jensens are working with architectural firm MossCreek to bring their vision to life. Double forts have proven popular with family and friends. To accommodate even larger groups, some triple forts are planned, and a new wagon wheel layout is in the works that connects six forts circling a common central gathering space via drawbridges.

While the treehouses look as you might expect, they actually aren’t built in trees. “It’s all part of the fantasy to have the elements but remain practical,” says Amanda. “City building codes do not allow for commercial structures to be built in a tree – it’s not safe for the tree or the structure.”

Construction works with the land’s topography to leave woodlands undisturbed, and SmartBark and cedar are among the environmentally-friendly building materials.

Sanctuary Treehouse Resort“We want guests to have the best views, and at the same time, don’t want to litter the mountainside so it’s beautiful at night from below. The number one priority is to disturb the property as little as possible.”

Since each fort is loaded with features, Amanda says, “I haven’t heard one complaint from anyone wishing there was more to do at the resort.”

Nevertheless, property amenities beyond the fire pit are in the works. A check-in center will double as a supply store (for s’mores kits, steaks to grill and other treats) and offer parking since all guests will get a complimentary golf cart to reach their treehouse.

Guests also will be able to enjoy more than 4 miles of walking trails, a scavenger hunt, rope bridges, a slide, an enchanted forest that will light up and incorporate waterfall features, and other elements like “a gathering area with in-ground community hot springs where people can congregate,” says Amanda. “It will be a place where food trucks can congregate, live music will be staged and other fun things.”

Southern Charm Meets Chinoiserie

In The Home

home in Lamkin WoodsStatement pieces coupled with colorful accents personalize this Appling home.
For Appling residents Jessica and Daniel Yonchak, there was no time like the present to build a custom home in Lamkin Woods for their growing family.

“When you build, you either do it now or do it later,” says Daniel. “We wanted to do it now so we could enjoy it. I don’t think we’ll ever get tired of it.”

After they bought their 2.5-acre lot in 2020, the Yonchaks started building in the spring of 2021 and moved into their home in September 2022 with their two sons, Bennett and Walker, now 5 and 3 years old. Five months later, their daughter, Anniston, was born.

They customized a design from a Southern Living house plan to accommodate their lifestyle for years to come.

“We picked out everything from the colors to the width of the stair treads,” Daniel says. “It allows you to enjoy your home a lot more.”

However, they not only kept an eye on the future. From their fine china to keepsakes from their own childhoods, they included décor that honors their family history as well.

interior designer Katy King BrosiousColor, Pattern and Texture
The Yonchaks closely followed the progress of their house, visiting the site several times a week while it was under construction.

“Once it was sheet-rocked, I turned everything over to Jessica,” says Daniel.

Good plan. Jessica knew the look she wanted, and she enlisted interior designer and now friend, Katy King Brosious, to bring her vision to life. Together, they infused playful patterns, assorted textures and vibrant colors into the neutral décor to give the home its distinct personality.

“We wanted a classic, timeless look for the house,” Jessica says. “Katy’s Instagram was a great source of inspiration.”

The incorporation of color, patterns and texture into the décor begins on the front porch, where four black rockers are accented with an aqua and white striped pillow and a pillow with textured flowers and pink tassels. The brick floor of the porch is laid in a herringbone pattern.

White satin ribbons accented with a bright blue “Y” are tied to the green wreaths on the double front doors.

The eclectic mix of design elements continues into the interior, which features white oak flooring and six-paneled doors throughout the house.

In the living room, where Southern charm meets chinoiserie (the European interpretation of Chinese artistic traditions), two Oriental calligraphy brushes and a ginger jar sit atop the wood coffee table.

However, Jessica says, “We found the rug first and decorated the living room around it.”

Patterned pillows, which feature green and white buffalo checks or a blue and white design, accent the off-white couches. The pillows pick up the colors in the rug as well.

customized a design from a Southern Living house planA pair of oversized chairs, upholstered in spotted blue and white fabric, also adds color to the space.

White walls, custom built-ins, a raised hearth brick fireplace with gas logs and a wood beam mantel, a ceiling fan and a coffered ceiling complete the living room.

“We wanted a neutral background with pops of color,” says Jessica.

The open floor plan connects the living room to the kitchen, where an island separates the two spaces.

“We really wanted an open concept with a big island,” says Jessica. “We like to host and entertain. Storage also was important to us.”

Champagne bronze light fixtures hang above the island, which includes a farmhouse sink.

Wedgwood in London and sold by The Transylvania Club of SandersvilleThe kitchen also features quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, glass-front cabinets on top of enclosed cabinetry, brushed bronze hardware, a pot filler and a picket fence backsplash. A French antique chandelier hangs in the adjoining breakfast area.

Legacy Pieces
The butler’s pantry borrows design elements from the kitchen such as brushed bronze hardware and glass-front cabinets, where white bowls and blue and white Georgia historical plates are on display.

The plates, originally produced by Wedgwood in London and sold by The Transylvania Club of Sandersville, were conceived and executed as part of the 1933 Georgia bicentennial celebration. The plates are issued in blue and pink, and the Yonchaks have a set of 12 plates in each color.

“My family had those plates when I was growing up,” Daniel says.

They hung more blue and white Georgia plates around a mirror on a wall in the dining room, which also features a coffered ceiling and a gray chandelier with gold accents.

An oak pedestal table, which is surrounded by skirted, upholstered chairs, sits in the center of the room, while a white sideboard and white china cabinet line opposite walls.

home in Lamkin Woods“I wanted the dining room to be classic with a little twist,” says Jessica.

She keeps her grandmother’s china in the china cabinet, along with a plate with gray flowers that has special significance to Jessica’s family.

“My great-grandmother hosted a president for dinner, so a president ate off of the plate,” she says. (No, she doesn’t know which president dined with her great-grandmother.)

Her grandmother gave each of her three granddaughters four place settings of her china, and Jessica’s mother found the rest of the china to complete the set.

“The dining room is my favorite room in the house even though it gets the least use,” Jessica says.

A grandfather clock that belonged to Daniel’s grandparents accents the office.

The master bedroom features a four-poster California king bed, a windowpane mirror on either side of a TV cabinet, an upholstered chair and an upholstered bench at the foot of the bed.

“This furniture was a wedding gift to us from my parents,” says Jessica.

The adjoining master bath features a soaking rub with a freestanding telephone faucet fixture, two vanities with quartz countertops and a walk-in shower. A rainfall showerhead, subway tile and marble floor accent the shower.

The children’s bedrooms reflect their personalities and interests. Bennett’s room has a sports theme (He loves baseball and insists on keeping his Christmas sheets on his bed year-round). In Walker’s room, antique trucks that belonged to Daniel when he was a boy are part of the “anything-with-wheels décor.

On the wall in Anniston’s nursery, two white frames hold a pink baby bubble outfit that belonged to Jessica when she was a toddler. When Anniston first came home from the hospital, she also wore the same gown that her mom had worn when she arrived home as a newborn.

Columbia County HomePorch Life
When the Yonchaks spend time together, they’re likely to gather on their covered back porch.

The space includes a concrete floor, tongue-and-groove ceiling, wicker furniture, two ceiling fans and a raised-hearth, wood-burning fireplace. Special features of the brick fireplace include two Augusta pavers that came from an old homeplace on family-owned land in Harlem and the custom-built, live-edged, 450-pound wood mantel that Daniel’s college roommate made from a pecan tree.

“He has a lumber company in Sylvania,” says Daniel. “He had several trees on the grounds that were not cut up, so we got to pick out the tree.”

A dining table, which is set with colorful melamine plates on chargers edged with pink beads, rests on an area rug.

the Yonchak Family Home“I think we’ve eaten more meals on the porch than we have in the kitchen,” says Jessica.

With its fireplace and view of the woods behind the house, the back porch is Daniel’s go-to spot. They also plan to add a pool to the backyard one day.

“We built the house to last,” says Daniel. “Our whole goal is to maximize the space. We’re not going to outgrow it.”
