The project, which is slated to be completed by the first quarter of 2017 will feature five, fully functioning tree pod accommodations, collectively named Treetop Haven. The resort is being marketed as an all year-round wellness and adventure destination. As well, it is being depicted as a premier venue for forest bathing and weddings. Named in honored of local birds found in the vicinity of Prince Edward Island, the treepods are: Humming Bird, Blue Jay, Blue Heron, Bald Eagle, and Great Horned Owl.
Sheila Arsenault, world traveler and owner said this about her resort “Treetop Haven will be a Wellness Woods Adventure where guests can come to rest, relax and rejuvenate themselves. Guests can walk, bike, do yoga or meditate.” She spent a decade trotting the globe, have visited over forty countries, had returned to the island with a combined knowledge of experiences and inspiration. The result of which is Treetop Haven!
Arsenault explained that she wanted to do something in tourism but different from the norm. At first considering treehouses but then settled on treepods, instead. “Everything is a little bit different and nobody has done it before. The first time you do something it’s always hard, ” she told the Journal Pioneer.
“Arsenault called Weston Rayner, of Rayner Ventures Inc., to do the contracting work and he admits to being a little taken aback when she presented him with the designs.
It was quite the learning curve – it’s nothing like building a house. The huge decks underneath them are straightforward, but the domes are brand new to us. But with a lot of figuring we figured it out and made it happen,” said Rayner. The publication stated.
Here at L’ EcoResorts, we love the concept of the treepods for a number of reasons, including that the resort is located in the forest and off-the-beaten-path, it’s unique and one-of-a-kind in its locale, and its slogan states “One With Nature.”
