Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cabin in White Salmon - Tree House Tranquil-A-Tree

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.

Rebecca finds words useful but is more apt to play with fabric, ribbons, and beads--fashioning ribbon flowers, embellishing hats, exploring the world of costuming, quilting, and things that glitter.

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

Why owner/property manager chose South Cascade Mountains

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.

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.

Completely unplugged!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect venue for an unplugged weekend for us. We are extremely busy on a regular basis and in desperate need of a little time to focus on each other. The treehouse is ideal for a romantic get away. No TV, no cell service, no wifi. Simply perfect.

The kitchen is well stocked with whatever you might need to prepare meals. They even left a number of tea light candles for us to use in the various candle holders inside and on the deck.

There was a fire burning in the wood stove when we arrived (nice touch) so is was warm when we arrived. The hot tub was nice and hot (can't stand a lukewarm hot tub). The deck is private as it faces away from the treehousekeepers place. We enjoyed the eclectic selection of cassette tapes. After awhile we just started putting random tapes in and listened to quite a range of different genres. The spiral stair case is a bit narrow but as a larger person I didn't find it difficult at all.

The treehouse keepers dogs (who we called Bud, Daisy and Mack because we didn't know their names) came and made friends with our guy Flash. They were very polite and sweet. Flash enjoyed being part of a pack for a few days.

I would caution visitors to the tree house to try to arrive before dark as the last 2 miles to the tree house are a gravel road that felt a bit sketchy on a dark foggy night.

We visited Katina's Café in White Salmon for breakfast (very good) and the Naked Winery Tasting room (great fun, not for the prudish) while in the area.

We plan to make many return visits to the Lothlorien tree House!

So amazing and wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This tree house is so sweet and nice and our stay was incredible. The hot tub was hot and not chemically feeling and the bed was comfortable. There is plenty of wood to keep the stove going and it keeps the whole place very very warm. There are a few dogs who live across a field and they came to say hello everyday and even took us for a hike up over the snowy ridge. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and cookware and there is a coffee maker and a few other things like salt and pepper available. We will definitely be coming back! The only thing I'd say is be aware of the narrow steep spiral staircase to access the upstairs bedroom area: a very large person or a person with limited mobility would have a hard time. Thanks for everything is was the best birthday I've ever had!

Treehouse

  • 3 of 5

The hot tub was great. The setting is quaint but it needs some updating. The collection of "cassette" tapes is interesting and would have been even better if the cassette player actually worked! Major areas were clean but there was a level of grime on anything you touched, such as the toaster. We had to clean some items in order to be comfortable using them. It was all just fine, not remarkable, but fine. I personally would not stay there again but I am sure others will continue to enjoy it. Location is a bit of a challenge!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it when guests notify the treehousekeeper or us of any problems they have so it can be taken care of during their stay. For example, we checked and found that the cassette player works just fine. Had you notified the treehousekeeper, she could have helped you with it. We’ve asked our treehousekeeper to take particular note of the toaster and other appliances. Roy went up and checked in person after seeing your comment about “a level of grime on anything you touched,” but did not find that to be the case. However, pots that hang over the stove may start out clean yet pick up ambient cooking aerosols after they have been cleaned, and dishes washed in high-mineral content water will not sparkle as though washed in soft water. We’re glad that your stay was fine, and appreciate your letting us know about the things that need attention.

Not what was expected

  • 2 of 5

We were very surprised to find that the tree house was not really "hidden away". While you really did have to drive out to the middle of nowhere to get there, we were surprised to find that it was on an inhabited property. You could see the "tree keeper's" house from the patio area and even through the windows from the inside. With the other house being so close, it would have been nice to have curtains or blinds to help feel like we had our privacy but it didn't. There was a note inside giving us instructions like to wash the dishes and put them back where we found them, to only place organic fruit and veggie scraps into the compost receptacle (no grains or meats), clean the grill after use, to bring back our recyclables with us if possible, and to even bring our used lines/bedding down to the main living area floor upon departing. No biggie...but then there was a request to leave a $15-20 gratuity. For what?!? We had dog hair in our bed, poop on the walkway to the outhouse, dogs that came to visit us every time we grilled, a bathroom with a door that I could barely close, and we didn't even have any tools to clean the grill. We ended up going into town to by a grill cleaning brush. It was nice to get away and it is a cute little place, but it was not what we were expecting, especially with how much it cost.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Although the listing clearly states caretakers live on the property, we revised the listing to be more clear. For others reading this: Other buildings on the property are a city block or more away; the nearest building has no windows facing the treehouse; and all who live &/or work on the property respect the privacy of our guests. Tree branches had filtered the view from the treehouse but for safety reasons had to be removed. The trees planted to replace the screening did not survive the extreme summer conditions. We have made & installed kitchen curtains so our guests can choose their view while new trees are planted and grow to provide a living screen. It is standard for any vacation house rental to provide “house rules” and instructions about what is expected of guests. Since there are fewer environmental/recycling options in the country, we encourage our guests to help respect and honor our home, the earth. Although guests do have certain responsibilities in leaving the treehouse in good tidy condition, there is a lot more which the treehousekeeper does in preparation for each stay including on-going maintenance. Some guests require more attention than others -- we encourage guests to communicate their needs to the treehousekeeper. Leaving a gratuity is an optional custom. We were shocked to hear about the dog hair. Clean sheets and pillow cases are used for each guest, but it turns out that the sheets used during your visit generate static cling and attracted random hair floating in the air. Our treehousekeeper works diligently to catch things like that, and she adds her apology to ours for missing it. We have removed those sheets from service to avoid this happening again. Regarding poop on the trail: we remove animal droppings when they are found – whether from domestic or wild animals. Although the treehousekeeper patrols the walkway prior to a guest’s arrival, she cannot control when or where wildlife does its business. Respecting a guest’s privacy, she does not walk the area unless requested. While we appreciate your going the extra mile, had you notified the treehousekeeper about the grill brush missing, she would have provided one. We keep spare supplies on hand because the ones left out for our guests’ use have a tendency to disappear. Please let us know the cost: we will reimburse you for the grill brush you purchased. Thank you. We appreciate knowing how we can to improve our guests' experience.

Charming and cozy tree house

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly how they described it. Rustic, cozy, quirky tree house. Was a great base for us for wedding weekend festivities in nearby Hood River, White Salmon and Trout Lake.
