Our most adventuresome rental!

If you are looking for an adventure, or the most romantic bedroom the Gorge has to offer, then you will want to check this treehouse out. The Observatory tree house is not for everyone, but it might be the most magical slumber you will ever sleep (seriously). This off the grid (and very high off of the ground) arboreal abode boasts three separate rooms connected by floating walkways and ship ladders. The glass bedroom is designed for star gazing, and sits 50 feet above the Gorge floor. It looks out over the Red River Valley and is home to a high-powered telescope, you can see further into the Cosmos than any other stay in the Gorge!!! 
 
To get to The Observatory, you must hike up over 200 steps that ascend steeply into the trees! If you are out of breath reading this and would prefer a shorter approach, you may want to consider staying in our other treehouse, The Sylvan Float. Once you reach the gear room, you will find an instruction manual which will explain how to use the kitchen crane to hoist coolers and food, operate the solar power, describe how we built this treehouse, and tell you all about the 5 host trees you will be staying with. From the gear room, you can climb up through the floor of the cozy kitchen and be delighted by the views to come. 
 
Building this treehouse is a dream come true for the Canopy Crew, and I am so excited to share it. I would argue that this is one of the coolest treehouse rentals in the world. This is a true canopy experience and it should be noted that it might be too adventurous for some!
 
Once you trek up to your new home in the swaying Eastern White Pine, you may feel exposed to the unforgettable raw nature of the canopy!  This treehouse is designed for able-bodied folks and is NOT meant for unsupervised or small children. 
 
Features include:
Small kitchen with gas stove and heat
Open air, screened in gear and bedroom for guests or kiddos
A glass ceiling master bedroom for two
A crane for hoisting coolers and sleeping gear up to the upper levels
A small solar array with lights and phone chargers
A composting toilet
The best view of the Gorge proper any rental currently offers! 
 
Things of note:
This tree house is designed for two, but does have additional room for kids or two extra guests. Not all of the rooms are heated and there are various degrees of indoor/outdoor spaces. There are solar powered lights in the upper rooms, but flashlights or headlamps are needed.
