Description

The Observatory tree-house is a vacation experience that quite literally rises above the rest!  Built not for the faint of heart, this tree-top adventure offers the best views of the Red River Gorge.  Acscend the wandering wooden staircases into the canopy to begin your exploration of this pirate ship in the trees.  You'll discover spectacular views from a glass bedroom with built-in skylights, a screened-in hammock lounge with plenty of storage, and a cozy kitchen with a wrap-around porch.  As you navigate from room to room through floating walkways and steep ship ladders, you may be wondering what it must have been like to create such an epic abode...

A note from our tree-house team, the Canopy Crew:

Building this tree house 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 tree house 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 tree house is designed for able-bodied folks and is NOT meant for unsupervised or small children.

We are sad to say that our beloved white pine tree that is part of the Observatory Treehouse has been infested by the pine bark beetle. While we originally had hopes of saving it, our tree, along with the other mature pines on our mountain are falling ill and dying. I have made a lot of special memories up in the branches of this tree and I know many of you have as well.

As a crew, we paid our respects and gave our love to the old tall pine. While the tree has died, it is still structurally sound for the time being. It has been thoroughly inspected and approved to stay standing until we commence renovations later this year. We have taken the top out of the tree to reduce wind load, and are taking measures to further stabilize the trunk, which is now acting as a post. When we begin our renovations we are going to replace the trunk with a pole and add some new features to the treehouse that we know you will love!

Feel free to check in anytime after 3:00 pm and check out up until 11:00 am.  Thank you!
