We went two years in a row! We loved the treehouses. Loved the staff. Loved the grounds. The town is a bit far, but you can use the 'common' kitchen. We loved the breakfast in the main house. The zipline was fun. We did the horsebackriding and river rafting (both extra) which we would do again. It's definitely not fancy, but that's not what it's about. Great place for a family reunion or just a family vacation. Can be romantic, too, if you have the right mindset. Every night around the campfire with the rest of the guests and s'mores made our stay even more special.
This is not your ordinary 'resort' and this is not your 'schooled' hoteliers and concierges. But it's fun, the breakfast is yummy and the horses on the property whinnying in the night are romantic. It's kind of like camping/cabins/bed n breakfast all rolled into one. But you're not really camping.
When we went for my daughters 16th birthday, they were VERY accomodating in helping me surprise her with an amazing chocolate birthday cake that we shared around the campfire with the rest of the guests.
Why does Yahoo keep adding this place to lists about the most unique places to stay? This place was nothing like what is advertised. It is just a collection of a couple CLOSELY spaced, unlockable (even from the inside), tree houses centered around one bathroom that someone built on their little ranch (if it can be called a ranch). Being there was like being at summer camp as a kid. There was nothing romantic or secluded about it. It might be kind of fun for a family but not for the price, and not for what is advertised. Just be honest about what it is and maybe people who are interested in this kind of thing will come out.
This scene is nice in concept, but over hyped and terribly over priced You are not made aware of the stringent cancellation policy until you receive your 2 page confirmation email. By then you are on the hook, because you have been PRECHARGED for your "room." SO Beware! there is a 25% tariff for canceling or shortening your stay - even if they rebook the room! Staff was grumpy and incorrigible, acted as if maid chores were the guest's problem!
"Daily tours" of tree houses were non existent, again, due to frumpy staff. But on a redeeming note, the Trail ride leader, Lila, and the zip line gentleman were both talkative, open, and friendly, I thank them for that.
Downside: Barking dogs at 6 am. Noise/smells from kitchen disrupt early morning sleep in one of the finer accommodations at the place. Very little to do that doesn't cost $$$ and a cancellation policy from hell - probably because people get there and ask "what is up with this?!?" They are met tiny, rickety, little cabins in the trees, with no amenities to speak of, for upwards of $150$/night! It is 12 miles to town ie: meals. There are many derelict vehicles around, in a generally downtrodden neighborhood. So cancellations are probably something they are plagued with, thus the bizarre and rigid policy.
Sadly, I think this is the organic/hippy version of the money grubbing tourist trap.We will not be returning, due to draconian cancellation policy that dictates if you complain about tariff, it is made null and void, but you are blacklisted!! hehheh seems it would have turned out the same either way. Pay fee - never return. Don't pay fee- never return! ....They need a serious lesson in customer service.
On a brighter note, nearby, the Wild Cat Park south of cave junction, got our top vote during our weekend playing tourist in OR/NorCA. The staff there were intelligent and brave. Their lions and tigers roar on command and eat from their hands! Clean scene.
We loved this resort! It was quite some time ago as you will see, so my info is not exactly up to date. You have to be ready to use the "inhouse" in the main house as there are no facilities in the trees, but that is a small matter if you are an adventurous soul. We took our 10 year old granddaughter there on our trip through the area. She is 19 years old now and still reminisces often about how much fun she had there. We had the duplex unit and she stayed in her own treehouse connected to ours by a rope bridge. The owners even gave her a free horse ride around the main complex. Nice, entertaining folk. Try it if you still harbor an inner child aching to get out.
