Tips / Destination


Not only can you win an entire treehouse resort all to yourself, but also $25,000 through a recent sweepstakes launched by TimberStone Adventures, Inc. The owners of the Maine resort and disc golf course are giving away the entire property.


All you have to do is submit your nature photo to the photo content and pay a $99 entry fee.


The grand prize includes three live-in treehouses, a five-story castle town, 18-hole disc golf course, private mountaintop, 56 acres along the White Mountain National Forest, a side-by-side vehicle and the cash prize.


The three treehouses range in size. The largest is two stories, with more than 1,100 square feet. It comes with a full kitchen, two bathrooms, two private bedrooms, cathedral ceilings, a large front deck and WiFi. In total, it sleeps eight. The mid-sized and smaller treehouses sleep four each.


The 18-hole mountain disc golf course is outfitted with state-of-the-art disc golfing equipment and handmade benches throughout the course, which sits at the base of your own mountain. If you climb up at that mountain, you can head to the top of your five-story castle tower for 360-degree views of White Mountain National Forest in all its glory. A short hike away, you can access a small, isolated beach. Make sure to bring all your outdoors equipment, so you can make full use of your snowmobile, ATV and hiking trails. The property is also just a short drive from three different ski resorts. The property even includes its own sawmill, in case you ever needed one.


The contest runs through Nov. 1 and you can enter at wintreehouses.com.

Leak-Proof Silicone Bottles for Liquids

It doesn’t matter which bottles you use for transporting liquids when you travel, just so long as they meet Transportation Security Administration regulations, right? Wrong. Not all travel-sized liquid containers are the same. For example, cheap plastic bottles may explode in flight, leaving you with stained and damaged clothes and a mess to clean up. Rather than scrimping on below-par bottles for your carry-on liquids, invest a bit of extra money in bottles you’ll actually look forward to using and that won’t require laborious attempts at cleaning out every last drop of your product.
