Treehouses like nothing you've ever experienced!

I love the great outdoors!  Nature calls to me this time of year when I listen to the croaking frogs outside my window at night.  But what if you’re looking for an experience beyond mere camping?  Why not stay in a treehouse for an adventure outing!

Here in the Pacific Northwest where I live, there are a number of treehouse resorts.  If your idea of climbing trees is based on memories from your youth, then its time to consider treehouses for adults!

The Out 'n' About Treesort

The Out ‘n’ About Treesort near Cave Junction, Oregon includes 14 treehouses in which you can stay among the treetops.  The most popular is the Cavaltree Fort – a 2-story treehouse with observation tower and various smaller treehouses connected with a swinging bridge.

You can also get around the entire 37-acre park with ziplines and “Tarzan” swings.

In addition to staying in the treetops, guests can enjoy horseback riding and swimming in a fresh-water stone-lined pool.

Where do I sign up?

Prices range from $70-240, depending on the size of the treehouse you reserve, and the time of year you stay.  Breakfast is included!

But what if the Out ‘n’ About Tresort is already filled up on your weekend off?  Never fear… you don’t have to travel far to reach the Vertical Horizons Treehouse Paradise, which is also located in southwestern Oregon.

Like the Treesort, it is run like a bed and breakfast.  There are three treehouses built into the fir forest.  When you’re not sleeping in the trees, you can explore the Rogue River – on kayak, flotation or perhaps just fishing.  There is more than enough nature to keep you entertained!  Unbelievably, the resort has wireless internet… even among the trees!

Prices per night range from $190-220 double occupancy, with a surcharge for additional guests.

North of Oregon, in Washington State, you’ll find the Cedar Creek Treehouse in Ashford, near beautiful Mt. Rainier.  This is where you can stay in a treehouse without feeling like you’re roughing it… at all!   In fact, as you climb the 5-story staircase 50 feet into the overstory of a 200-year old red cedar, you’ll leave your worries behind.

You’ll pay a bit for the luxury – $300 per night for 2 adults, to be precise. But what memories you’ll have of sleeping under the stars!  Its rated as one of the 5 best treehouse hotels in the world.

Staying in a treehouse is a unique way to enjoy nature!  I’d say that the Pacific Northwest is an ideal place for your adventure outing.

Why not consider a treehouse bed and breakfast this summer?  If you are traveling in this direction, be sure to let me know!

    That looks like a fantastic holiday, I’d love it! Needs to be a bit closer to London, though (-:

  2. Amble Resorts loves treehouses, too! The Resort at Isla Palenque has canopy homes, sophisticated island dwellings that resemble treehouses. We agree that it is a unique way to enjoy nature!
