ST Steps

"To cross the threshold into the Gardener's Cottage, the newest addition to Shadetree's overnight fantasies, is to be transported... there is a touch of the enchanted about this place, as though magic lingers just out of reach, bringing the energies depleted by day-to-day life flooding back into the body and the soul."

-Country Roads Magazine

The Gardener's Cottage Living Room, separate from the bedroom, features eight stained glass windows and two walls of windows overlooking beautiful views of the hillside. It includes a wet bar with refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave and utensils.



The Gardener's Cottage Bedroom features three stained glass windows and a wall of windows overlooking beautiful views of the hillside. It includes a king-sized bed and a separate dressing room.

The Gardener's Cottage Bathroom features three stained glass windows and a spacious jacuzzi for two.

Sun Porch Guests escape through their "hobbit door" to their own private covered deck overlooking both historic Royal Street and the dale leading to the Mississippi River where the deer feed in the evenings.

"Hours of creative visualization have produced living spaces remarkable in their completeness and attention to detail. Every element complements the whole resulting in a rare and tangible harmony which not only delights the eye but satisfies the soul."

-Country Roads Magazine


The Sun Porch bath has hand-painted walls to make you feel as if you are outdoors in nature while you are soaking in a large jacuzzi for two.

The Loft has a cathedral ceiling and walls of red-heart cypress with skylights (that can be closed off), and a separate living area with twin day-bed. The bathroom has an antique claw-foot tub. The private balcony has views of the outdoor campfire and the dale leading down the hill.

Guests in all suites relax around the outdoor campfire enjoying beautiful views while watching birds flock around the numerous bird feeders and deer feed at the bottom of the hill.



When you rent all three suites, Shadetree will help you host private parties, weddings and other special outdoor events.
