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.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
