Roy and Rebecca were amazing hosts and had the treehouse warmed and ready for our stay. There was wood by the stove, the hot tub was already going and ready for immediate use, and Roy met us and told us of the history of his quaint place. Roy even replaced the CD player before we showed up as he knew we were bringing CDs, what service! It was a perfect place for us and our dog for a few days. The only suggestion that I would have is to include a map of the area (I had looked before I went, but there are a lot of random farms, logging roads, etc), to help guests get the lay of the land. We were able to walk on the road and venture into some logging roads (there is a lot of logging going on, unfortunately), to see some good views of the hills and Mt. Adams. All in all it was a great escape and I thank Roy and Rebecca for making it happen!
Hi Katie -- You and your companion were awesome guests. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and conversing with you and am delighted that you enjoyed our sweet hide-a-way. Your suggestion about including a map is a great idea. Thank you! We will include a map in the new guest handbook which is in the works. We have recently added several links to our guidebook here on Airbnb and will be adding more soon. You were great -- And I'm sure any Airbnb host would be equally delighted if you were to grace their accommodations with a visit. I hope you will come see us again!!
Very cozy spot! It's a beautiful area and was a great launching point for some excellent hikes. Finding the book Curious Gorge there helped us find some extra things to check out. The hikes were fun, but coming back to the hot tub and wood stove was the best. I highly recommend the tree house. Roy and Rebecca were very, very pleasant too!
Hi Michael -- We are delighted that you had a good time and enjoyed our special place in the wilderness. Curious Gorge is a unique and engaging look at possibilities in the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area and vicinity -- And, I am glad you had a chance to peruse it! It was a real pleasure meeting and talking with you -- And, should circumstances permit, please do come visit again!
The treehouse is nestled in a quiet niche in the woods. It's small and cozy and perfect for 2-3 people. If you're looking for a quiet, relaxing hideaway this is the place.
The cabin was great. The hot tub was perfect. The host was very accommodating. The cassette collection was pretty cool as well.
The nearby trails were awesome, but one thing you should know is the drive there consists of miles of clear cut forrest, so it was a little unattractive, but once there everything was nice.
Another note is that I don't think it qualifies as an actual treehouse as it sits on the ground... but it is surrounded by trees.
Hi Tommy -- Thank you for the awesome review. We are glad it worked so well for you. It was a real pleasure working with you!
We do want to note that the tree house, with the exception of the decks, really is suspended from and supported by several Douglas Fir Trees as it was built by its original owners -- A Bahai couple who raised a family there in the early 70s. At that time access was by means of a vertical ladder parts of which are still a part of the structure. Later the deck was added. Then a few years ago, we added the skirting underneath to help keep things warmer in winter. Unfortunately this tends to obscure that the tree house is supported between a cluster of trees.
The clearcutting this Spring along Staats Road was pretty distressing. We tried to no avail to persuade the timber company to selectively cut, but the good news is that trees grow quickly in that environment and in a few years the landscape along the road will return to its forested splendor and it will be at least another 100 years (the age of the trees cut) before it is logged again!.
We have a Timber Management Plan for Lothlorien which requires the forest be maintained and allowed to attain old-growth characteristics -- the forest surrounding the tree house is approximately 100 years old. The Ponderosa Pines in the meadows of Lothlorien (part of our upland wetland reclamation project) are only about 5 years old and growing 18 inches or more per year! Soon we will be evaluating conservation easements to ensure that the lands of Lothlorien are never clearcut!
Thanks again for being our first "Airbnb" customer. We are delighted the experience was so mutually satisfying!
