There’s no better way to breathe in Oregon’s natural beauty than by staying up high in a treehouse.

Think treehouses are for kids? Try again. Along with tipis and safari tents, treehouses have become a popular choice among the adult glamping crowd.

If you’re looking to fully immerse yourself in the natural wonders of Oregon, snoozing in a treehouse is the ultimate way. Decked with many of the comforts of home, Oregon’s epic treehouse rentals are more than a place to stay — they’re a destination.

From the caves of southern Oregon to the northern Columbia River Gorge, you’ll find treehouse rentals scattered across the state. Here’s a list of our favorites so you can get back to nature in a comfort and style.

Off the Grid Treehouse

Off the Grid Treehouse

Looking to disconnect? Off the Grid Treehouse is your answer. Adjacent to the Umpqua National Forest, this treehouse rests on a secluded 160-acres in Douglas County.

While Off the Grid Treehouse may not technically be a treehouse by definition, it gets you up high enough to feel like it is. With breathtaking panoramic views in every direction, you’ll never want to climb down.

Peek inside and you’ll find gorgeous woodworking from floor to ceiling. Matched by a touch of Southwestern flair, this lookout tower provides a cozy oasis for anyone looking to disconnect on their weekend retreat.

Forty feet up, guests will have access to basic kitchenware, an indoor fireplace, three beds, a small solar panel system, an outdoor shower, and 360-degree windows with a matching deck ideal for stargazing.

Roomy enough for a group of four, additional guests have the option of pitching a tent in the serene 40-acre meadow below. Climb on down to meet your friends for a soak in the wood-fired, spring-fed hot tub. Before you head back upstairs, visit the poo bear pit toilet 200-feet from the base to take care of business.

This popular destination only accepts up to 60 reservations a year, so be sure to book well in advance.

Sequoia Treehouse in Wine Country

Sequoia Treehouse in Wine Country

When you and your better half are in the mood for a romantic getaway, skip the posh hotels and immerse yourself in the countryside at the Sequoia Treehouse.

The craftsmanship of the two-story Sequoia Treehouse is truly one of a kind. It’s nestled between seven Sequoia trunks with three levels in total, including a bathhouse at the base.

Amenities include a laptop station nook, wifi, central heating, toiletries, and a black walnut toilet on the first floor. When you feel the need to clean up, descend to the base where you’ll find the private bathhouse with a sink, flush toilet, and shower.

Since your stay involves climbing ship ladders, there’s a clever luggage pulley system to hoist up your personal items. Be sure to bring your hammock and relax deck-side amongst the chickadees and woodpeckers with a glass of wine in hand.

Located in Dundee, you’ll be in the heart of wine country with all the hustle and bustle of Portland forty minutes away.

Mt. Hood Treehouse

Mt Hood Treehouse

Home to 11 glaciers, North America’s only year-round ski resort, and Oregon’s highest point, Mt. Hood deserves a spot on every traveler’s itinerary.

To get the full Mt. Hood experience, we recommend staying at the Mt. Hood Treehouse. Featured on BuzzFeed, the Mt. Hood Treehouse is located on 20-acres of pristine forest at the base of Mt. Hood.

Nestled between three firs, this 200-square foot treehouse serves as an exceptional basecamp for your Mt. Hood adventures. It features a range of comforting amenities such as a queen bed, coffee maker, mini fridge, central heating, and linens.

When adventure brings you this way, a stay at the Columbia River Gorge Treehouse is a must.

The Forestree

The Forestree

Reminiscing about your childhood treehouse? Bring back the excitement with a stay at The Forestree. With a shabby-chic exterior and minimal interior, this treehouse is like an adult-sized fort high up in the air — all that’s missing is the “no girls” (or boys) sign.

The Forestree features a single room capable of accommodating a group of five close friends. Keeping in line with the fort theme, the amenities inside are sparse. There’s a mini fridge, queen bed, bunk beds, and a cot for the buddy who pulls the short straw. You can enjoy all of the other amenities in the common area.

Getting to the treehouse is an adventure in itself. Guests will have to brave three flights of stairs, two suspension bridges, and another seven flights of stairs — putting you 30-feet up above the forest floor.

Since it’s quite the journey to get to the treehouse, there’s a toilet located inside. If you aren’t on that level with your group, you can make the descent to the restrooms at ground level.

When you’re ready for breakfast, head on over to the main lodge for a full continental meal. There’s also WIFI, a swimming pool, and a fire pit in the common area.

If the Forestree happens to be booked, check out one of the many options at Out ‘n’ About Treehouse Resort. Located in Takilma, the Oregon Caves National Monument and the Redwood National and State Parks are only a drive away.

Hubris and the Serpent: The Truth About Rattlesnake Bite Victims

In a grizzled true story detailed in his book Over the Edge: Death in Grand Canyon, Michael P. Ghiglieri recounts a close-encounter involving a rattlesnake coiled up on a woman’s chest as she slept while camped along the Colorado River while guiding a rafting trip in 1987. The woman's friend noticed the serpent's temporary sleeping arrangement and alerted Ghiglieri to the situation. Thinking on his feet, he used an 18-inch long folding shovel to remove the rattler from the woman’s chest without anyone suffering a snakebite — or even a disturbance of the woman’s sleep.
