The Master Bedroom and Bath in the Treehouse Villas at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort



By Dave Shute

(For the first page of this review of the Treehouse Villas, click here.)

THE MASTER BEDROOM AND BATH AT THE TREEHOUSE VILLAS

The master bedroom in the Treehouse Villas has a queen bed–smaller than the kings in other DVC master bedrooms.

Here’s another view of the queen. Note the fun headboard…

…and the tables on either side, with a drawer above and shelf below.

On the wall between the living room and bedroom you’ll find this dresser…

…with four smallish-drawers.

The wall across from the foot of the bed has a bench with a coat rack above, and a desk with a 54 inch TV above.

The bench includes this large drawer.

Near the door to the bath you’ll find this closet–there’s plenty of storage both in this room and in the Treehouse overall. (The lower clothes rod makes the closet more accessible. Standard rooms have a higher one.)

The master bath layouts vary quite  a bit between accessible and standard rooms. First I’ll show a standard bath.

The master bath opens from the back of the bedroom. It offers this sink and large counter, with storage underneath.

Note the fun sculpting of the faucet–one of many little design touches in the Treehouses that add add to their woodsy charm.

In a drawer under the sink you’ll find a hair dryer.

Beyond is a glassed-in whirlpool bath, with, unusually…

…a shower before the bath in the same glassed-in space.

The toilet has its own separate space.

Accessible master baths have a different layout other than the sink, and the sink has a cutout rather than storage shelves below. The toilet is in the area where in a standard room you’d find the tub and shower…

And vice versa, except in an accessible room you get a tub/shower combo.

we have the treehouse booked for our first time! Now I am worried. We have 9 plus a one year old and we all wanted to be together since it was Christmas. Is there anywhere else that we can be together. My dad and wife we booked at saratoga springs. They will have a car. Will they be alright or should we book them somewhere else and where for same money? Thank You

Lori, nine plus a one year old fit and is OK, so long as you have two people besides the one year old short enough to fit the bunk beds

We are staying here for our first visit. Unfortunately we picked this as the only real option for my husband myself and 8 children 1-17. We are using disney transportation and now I worry we will not make times we want to be places. Is there anywhere else in this size and price range you would recommend more?

Angela–yes, a two-bedroom villa at Old Key West https://yourfirstvisit.net/2013/04/29/review-disneys-old-key-west-resort-2/

Hello There! We are planning to stay in the Treehouse Villas for the 1st time this Sept, while this is not our first visit to WDW it is to the Villa’s. We are driving, and know all about the transportation issues. My question for you is do you think someone around 6’3 could fit length wise on the sleeper chair in the living area? I see from your report that the bunk bed option is out as it has the frame that will cause some issues. Thanks

Leigh, the sleeper chair is 79 inches long, so it should work!!

Hi there, I am booked in a THVilla on December 1, 2015. We have 5 people, all adults. I hope these beds aren’t too small as 2 of the of us will be in the bunk bed room, although I guess they have the option of sleeping in the living room area if need be. I had called DVC because I had read in other reviews about the travel situation and was told, that the Treehouses have busstops for the busses to the parks, and that you don’t have to take the bus to SSR first. I sure hope they weren’t lying to me! I will not be a happy camper, especially at the end of the night. We cancelled our rental car based on the information provided by Member Services @ DVC.

Sandi, frankly this may be true, as the resorts now have more autonomy over their buses than they used to have, and changes have emerged.

However I can’t find any evidence that it is true, and frankly it seems unlikely to me. There’s only 60 Treehouses, so a dedicated set of buses seems unlikely, and adding these stops to the standard SS buses, which already take forever, seems like a real negative for the 1,320 units in SS….
