Shady River Nature Resort on the beautiful Eleven Point River in Randolph County has a new feature. In addition to its uniquely appointed cottages on a bluff overlooking the river, it now offers tree house accommodations. “Firefly”, a two level tree house is now available for occupancy.
Located in a natural area of giant white oaks, the cool accommodation overlooks a huge meadow where deer graze each evening and morning and birds and other wildlife are abundant. With wide porches both above and below, the fully furnished tree house is decorated in an African theme inside. Traveling the wonderful nature trails at Shady River either by electric cart or by hiking, visitors can easily imagine they’re on safari at an exotic location. Otherwise, one can enjoy swimming, kayaking, canoeing, or fishing in the pristine, cool waters of the spring fed Eleven Point River, last refuge of the endangered Ozark Hellbender.
