One of Oregon’s greatest treasures is it’s bounty of trees, which give us specular stretches of woodlands, a wealth of timber, clean air, and shelter for thousands of native species. And one Oregonian has taken his love of trees to a new level, building a custom-made bed and breakfast treehouse in the southern part of the state.
This “treesort” can be found in Cave Junction, Oregon. Owner and builder Michael Garnier created the Out'n'About Treehouse Treesort – a series of interconnected treehouses – because he dreamt of making a living from trees without cutting them down. Connected with rope bridges, catwalks, ladders and a pulley system, these treehouses are all uniquely constructed, and bear quaint names, such as “The Treezebo” and “The Serendipitree.”
Not all the treehouses are permitted yet (in progress) but five are currently open to guests. It took eight years of legal battles before the Out’n’About was approved and permitted as a bed and breakfast, and work is still being done on that front. However, guests can now stay overnight and enjoy the singular environment. Expect to be welcomed as a friend as well as a traveler by the owners, and be prepared for a family-friendly environment as well as quiet solitude.
