Located just outside Cave Junction, the family-owned Treehouse Treesort offers an alternative adventure for families. The 36-acre property features 11 treehouses of different heights and four cabins, all designed with unique angles, corners, lofts, and built-in beds. Some include mini-fridges or a kitchenette, and they vary in size. Two have full bathrooms (Schoolhouse, Cabintree) and two have half baths (Treezebo, Forestree). The others share a central bathhouse. A number of them accommodate five to seven people but are priced at a rate for four (extra fee beyond four). Your stay includes breakfast. Kids will love the onsite activities, including aerial walkways, a play area, volleyball court, rock-lined swimming pool, fire pit, craft classes (small fee), and community cooking area with barbecues, microwaves, and stove top cookers. Extra activities (that cost extra) are the zip line tours, a giant Tarzan swing, and horseback rides. Treesort has a communal summer camp vibe that may or may not be your kind of thing.

Off the beaten path, really cool tree houses, wonderful and welcoming staff. Sheets and towels provided. Shared kitchen and fire pit was a great for interacting and meeting others. The zipline staff were amazing with my kids!
The treehouses and grounds are still beautiful, the bridges and stairs are still usable, but if your not paying full price summer rates the company and staff don't care about your stay. They advertise themselves as a Bed and Breakfast, which is a joke considering the sad breakfast of old bagels and rock solid margarine while an angery staff member sits nearby and works on her knitting project and blasts techno music out of old laptop speakers. Look, if you want to be verbally assulted along with your taste buds and ears first thing in the morning then this is the place for you! If not, then maybe I can entice you with a cold shower in the winter because your not gonna get any hot water here! What romantic getaway is complete without a little hypothermia? Don't worry, you still get to pay extra for the privilege of staying in a room with a bunk hot water heater though. The staff are kind about letting you down easy after you complain, but they still don't bother to inform you that the clawfoot bathtub they just upsold you on isn't really going to work out quite like you expect when you book. I was super disappointed with this place and hope other people don't get swindled with their over promise and under deliver scheme like we did.
