ReTreet: A treehouse resort grows near Lake Guntersville

GUNTERSVILLE — For cozy weekend getaway accommodations or a boutique-style all-in-one wedding venue, the new ReTreet resort just might check all the boxes. 

ReTreet, owned by Troy and Patti Hopkins, opened this month. The couple began work in January on the 40-acre property at 5843 Scottsboro Highway.

“We wanted to develop this unique resort and share it with others,” Troy said. 

ReTreet features six cabins nestled among the trees. Each house is furnished with a king-size bed and a pull-out sofa and can accommodate four people. Every treehouse comes with its own golf cart; cars are not allowed past the resort parking area. 

Resort amenities include a nine-hole disc golf course,  horseshoes, a dog park with an overlook – ReTreet is a pet-friendly property – as well as an outdoor dining and grilling area.

“We’re adding a lot more for guests,” Troy said. ‘Little extra special touches. We want people to relax here.”

Once the grounds are complete, Troy said he plans to host live music events called “Music in the Trees.” He said “Art Walks” will have vendors along the paths in the woods. There are hookups for food trucks, which the owners are hoping to make a permanent fixture at the resort.

“There aren’t many restaurants over here, so it would probably do great,” Troy said.

ReTreet is also a boutique wedding destination. The resort has space for 150 people at the all-outdoor venue, with tents available in the event of inclement weather. The bride will have her own treehouse to prepare in and can walk down the aisle from there for the wedding. The entire property can be rented for the weekend.

“I think we have a very affordable wedding package for a unique, all-in-one wedding venue,” Troy said.
