Camp Wandawega Tree House in Wisconsin

June 9, 2011

Located on the premises of Camp Wandawega in Elkhorn, Wisconsin (a 1920s lakeside resort revitalized by husband/wife team David Hernandez and Tereasa Surratt), the just-completed Camp Wandawega Tree House is now available for vacation rentals.

The couple enlisted a group of friends (furniture makers, artisans, and builders) to collaborate on the three-level structure, which features reclaimed wood, vintage windows, and interior touches like pillows made from flour sacks and out-of-print books on Wisconsin history. Go to Camp Wandawega for more information and see our recent post on their camping store.
