A Walk In the Clouds

Standing on the mountainside, on the second morning of our adventure visiting Bolt Farm Treehouse, I watched the sun rise over the horizon. I took a photo; however, nothing captures those moments in full. Unless you were there, you would not understand the beauty and the quiet affect it has on your mind and soul. I posted the picture with the words: “Magic and healing happens in the clouds first, and then guides its way down through the roots.” This was the only way I could explain the moment. In this crazy world we live in and the things we take for granted, like a sunrise, Bolt Farm Treehouse brings you back to “reality” in a simple way… In nature.


This beautiful place is located in Whitwell, Tennessee, which is approximately two hours from Williamson County and forty-five minutes from Chattanooga. The fifty-five acre property is positioned in the Sequatchie Valley, which is visible from outer space and three states can be seen from the top of Bolt Farm’s location: Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama. The nature retreat consists of standalone tree houses, domes and mirror cabins and was mindfully created by Seth and Tori Bolt, a husband-and-wife team that wanted to bring childhood magic back to adults craving adventure.


Seth and his father crafted the original Majestic Treehouse, located in Walhalla, South Carolina, to be the location for Seth and Tori’s wedding and honeymoon. This was the beginning of the dream that led them to Tennessee’s mountains, driven by the mindset that “you feel on top of the world when you are on top of the world.” Their journey to find the right place to build their dream brought them to Sequatchie Valley. While exploring the property, they came across waterfalls, mountainside paths, cliffside sitting areas, natural rock caverns and pathways, and so much more. It was the perfect location to create what is now a haven to guests.


There are currently five standalone tree houses, eight luxury domes and five mirror cabins. They opened their tree houses and domes in March of 2021, with the mirror cabins opening in October of 2022. The glass walls of the mirror cabins provide panoramic views of the surrounding woods and landscape, reflecting ninety-seven percent of UV rays and ensuring insulation and privacy.


Each villa (treehouse, dome and mirror cabin), is equipped with a kitchen or kitchenette, a private terrace or patio, outdoor hot tub, BBQ grill, pizza oven, fire pit and, of course, a view. Bolt Farm Treehouse offers guests an option to include ready-to-make meals that can easily be prepared in the pizza ovens, which is what my husband and I enjoyed during our stay. We did not have to worry about food at all as we had breakfast, lunch and dinner provided – as well as desserts and s’mores! Prior to arriving, we got to choose from a Breakfast Casserole, Blueberry Coffee Cake, Poppy Seed Chicken, Tuscan Chicken, Fajita Chicken, Veggie Lasagna and Peach Cobbler. All of the meals were already in our fridge, upon arrival, along with two pizza making kits.


The property has several Adirondack chairs and benches situated in mindful spaces for guests, either along the hiking trails, next to waterfalls or along the side of the mountain. Seth and Tori are literally reminding people to stop and take a breath while they explore… To stop and appreciate nature. My husband and I took advantage and stopped at every location we came upon during our exploring of the property.


Bolt Farm also offers a variety of amenities for guests to enjoy during their retreat, including:

  • 2.5 miles of hiking trails
  • In-room massages by Mountain Mobile Massage
  • Mountain-top Yoga
  • Fire pits with unlimited firewood
  • In-room projector for movies
  • Weekly on-site happy hours with Seth and Tori Bolt


Guests can also take their adventures off the property, to nearby destinations. Visit downtown Chattanooga or get adventurous with one of these nearby excursions: Paraglide Tennessee, Canoe Kayak Chattanooga, River Canyon Kayaks, Lodge Cast Iron Tours and Train Rides with the Tennessee Valley Railroad.
Bolt Farm Treehouse is also in partnership with One Tree Planted, a nonprofit organization focused on reforestation in the Appalachian region. For every reservation made, a tree is planted in order to contribute to reforestation efforts and sustainability. I encourage you to book your restorative stay at Bolt Farm Treehouse and immerse your mind, body and soul into reconnecting with nature. Oh, and don’t forget to watch the sunrise while you’re there.
