Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom 1 Bathroom 4 Sleeps

Our Tree House, situated about 1.5 hours from Portland International Airport in Portland, Oregon is a much loved destination for those seeking the peace and serenity of nature and is an Amazing Romantic Escape.

Suspended between several towering Douglas Fir Trees in the heart of the Cascade Mountains of the majestic Columbia River Gorge, in the foothills of towering, snow-covered Mt. Adams (the second tallest glaciated volcanic peak in the U.S. Pacific Northwest) our guests have their choice of myriad outdoor adventures (windsurfing, kayaking, hiking, whitewater rafting, etc.) or simply relaxing in their own private Hot Tub and rejuvenating in the bucolic forested setting of Tree House Tranquil-A-Tree.

With two stories and two full-size sleeping accommodations (a full size hand-made cedar log bed in the master bedroom and a fold-out futon on the main floor), Tree House Tranquil-A-Tree can be reserved for up to four people. We are family friendly and do allow guests to bring their well-mannered canine family members (conditions apply). Resident dogs may greet you--or even give you a walking tour.

The Village of White Salmon, Oregon, about 15 miles from the tree house, features multiple restaurants, art galleries, a nationally known microbrewery, and grocery shopping at either the local natural food store (Feast) or the local supermarket (Thriftway).

We invite you to experience the pleasure and excitement of being at one with nature among the towering firs of Tree House Tranquil-A-Tree

About owner/property manager

Roy is a long-time bookseller, poet, raconteur, and story-teller -- Just about any word has a story to be teased out, toyed with, played and enjoyed.

While both of us are available to respond, Rebecca generally manages the calendar, booking requests and inquiries.

Why owner/property manager chose White Salmon

Built over 45 years ago and unlike so many 'Taj Mahal' style tree-houses built as spectacles, this humble, rustic tree house has raised a family. It has that welcoming feeling of 'coming home' from the first time you step foot in it. Most who come so enjoy the peace and serenity that leaving instills an incredible desire to return once again to this little Eden in the Woods.

What makes this cabin unique

Whether you take part in any of the many available activities in the area or simply wish to hibernate away from it all for a few days, the serene beauty of Tree House Tranquil-A-Tree has that feeling of being 'home.'

NOTE: The principal heat in our tree house is a wood-stove. During the cooler months we offer our guests the option of purchasing firewood for only $10.00/night. Because the Homeaway website does not allow for an optional firewood fee, when we receive your reservation request the fee will be added to our quote. Thank you for your understanding.

The dogs were a bit much

  • 3 of 5

For the most part, the treehouse accommodations were what we expected - Charming and a little rugged. Our favorite part about it was listening to cassette tapes and drinking wine under the stars and the colorful lights on the patio. On the downside, we were greeted by a couple of really big dogs that jumped on us and barked at us the whole time we unpacked our car. It was a little intimidating but we're all dog lovers so it was ok. The dogs came back for a visit in the middle of the night howling at the full moon. Additionally, we couldn't get the hot tub to heat up so that was a bummer. However, we did not call the caretaker because it was late by the time we decided to get in. He probably could've fixed it so I wouldn't let that deter you. Earlier in the day we walked over and met the caretaker who was very kind and welcoming. Overall, we had a great weekend in White Salmon and Hood River and enjoyed our stay at the treehouse.

The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

After booking this place and looking at the map, I feared it would be too far out there for us to really enjoy the area. But it was actually just about the perfect amount of "far away" - close enough to get to town easily, but far enough away that we didn't hear the fireworks (which was the whole reason we went - our dogs hate fireworks).

and speaking of dogs, don't let Bruisers name and size fool you - he is one of the sweetest and best behaved dogs you'll ever meet. Having him around actually made our stay more enjoyable because he was such a delight. Even our dogs loved him.

As for the cabin itself, I don't think there was anything we needed that wasn't there. It's just the perfect size for a couple looking for a nice romantic getaway. The hot tub was clean and worked (we've had issues with that at other properties), the bed was comfortable, and the kitchen was fully stocked. The only oddity was the floor sloped a bit, but not badly, and really - it's a treehouse, built on and in the trees - the slope gave it that rustic feeling. It DID take me a half day to stop feeling like I had just gotten off a ship after a few days at sea (if you've ever been in the Navy you'll recognize that feeling), but it's all part of the charm.

I've seen some other reviews that complained about the caretakers house being able to "see in". Meh.. for one, it's pretty far away. Across a field and behind a barn. If you're concerned about him watching you, I have to wonder what kind of neighbors you have. And speaking of neighbors, the caretaker (drawing a blank on his name) is a super interesting guy. Quite a history and great stories if you get the chance to talk to him. We were there on the 4th of July, and when we returned from town that day, he had a whole picnic spread waiting for us for dinner (we had discussed it with him ahead of time - it wasn't like we wanted privacy and he intruded). Really nice guy, very attentive to our needs.

All in all, great stay and once the yurt is complete, we'll probably go stay there too.

Tranquil setting. Clean living quarters. Elegantly rustic.

  • 5 of 5

The feeling I received after staying there was that I could live there peacefully for quite some time. The Innkeeper was attentive, some times to the point of being too visible, but he was polite and willing to go the extra mile for us as guests.

We have a pleasant visit with the owner - His personality fit as the owner of the property.

Calm and Cozy Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for the weekend before Valentine's Day and we had a fantastic stay! While arranging for the stay, the treehouse owners were supremely flexible and helpful with our scheduling. When we actually began our trip, the drive out was beautiful with the winter snow everywhere. The treehouse cabin was also the perfect size for the two of us. It was just a 45 minute drive into Hood River (and that's partially due to snow), so we were able to spend the day in town exploring some hiking trails and waterfalls near Mt. Hood, then taking advantage of all the wonderful dining options in town. Then we came back to the treehouse and spent our evening relaxing in the wonderful hot tub. We also appreciated being out in the woods, surrounded by so much scenery and opportunities to explore, as this was a "no cell phones" trip for us. The treehouse keepers down the next driveway were lovely people and we had a wonderful time chatting with them when we checked in an out. All around, it was a wonderful stay, and I would definitely reccommend this cabin to any couple looking for a getaway from their everyday lives and a chance to be together and have a breath of fresh air.

A fun and memorable retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay. Luxury accommodations or Swiss Family Robinson, it's not... but the quiet, the charm, the dogs, the small town, and the scenery are absolutely one of a kind. We had dinner in Stevenson and White Salmon, and packed our own food for breakfast and lunches. The Lyle Trail along the Klickitat river provided a long lovely hike, and the hot tub at the tree house was our reward. The owners, Roy and Rebecca, supplied excellent directions and communication and were willing to chat with us about the Tree House's history.
