“Great for kids (and adults)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed for 2 nights, which was just about right. 1 night, and it seems like you come and go too quickly to enjoy anything. 3 nights is likely too long to keep everyone occupied. We did the zip-line, which was about 7-9 lines through the trees and across the meadow. Our 7 year old had no problems, and the guides were great. We also did a horseback ride and a tie-dye project, and both were a lot of fun.

It was not difficult getting in and out of the treehouse. Using the pulley was a great learning experience for the kids. And meeting our "neighbors" during the vacation was easy and a lot of fun. Folks congregate around the firepit at night, and also during lunch and dinner. Be sure to pack what food you need, since the town is 12 miles away. They do serve breakfast, and it was great. Much better than anything at a chain hotel.

The one downside really didn't apply to us, but I noticed that teenage kids were a bit bored. The zip lines were popular, but aside from that, they just walked around a lot. This really does seem geared towards young families.

“Fun and Safe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2013

While staying at the tree houses we took advantage of a lot of the activities available. The basic zip-line course is 9 zips, some through trees and some over the meadow. The guides were safe, friendly and skilled. You learn how to stop and keep facing forward with a short lesson. The “Tarzan Swing” was a real adrenaline rush, not for the faint of heart. We took horses out for a ride; it lasted about an hour and is through the beautiful Siskiyou forest. There is also disc golf available. Call ahead to schedule your activities, especially on the weekends.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

So we stayed for 3 nights, must tell you cassidy(daughter) is scared of heights, me well I am not to fond of them as well.Grace(daughter), Kate(wife)not really. So first day not really exited about all the swinging bridges and steep stairs,but bye the end I was so comfortable w/ the well built tree houses and rickety bridges, that i wasn't even holding the railings. Super cool.. Any way the houses are all so cool the people are fantastic. We tie died, zip lined, we used one of the many BBQ's to cook. Don't miss out on this hidden gem. Have fun, hold on, and feel free.

“hidden gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

Such an original idea, out in the midst of nowhere. Amazing treehouses for rent. Was featured on the Discovery channel as well. These are no "Bobby Brady" tree houses, either!
