During our last visit to town I had got us tickets for the Sunday matinee…
It was an opportunistic stop at Out’n’About Treesort that resulted in us moving to Oregon nearly 10 years ago. It was here that we picked up a leaflet for the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. I called and purchased tickets and off we went to Ashland for a couple of days. We fell in love with Ashland and Oregon and decided this was where we were going to stay once we’d finished our year-long family road trip around America.
Anyway, enough of our family history – because Out’n’About Treesort is worthy of its own story!
Out’n’About is a truly unique place. Part of its uniqueness has to do with the fact that it is a homegrown and based business. There are no locks on the treehouse doors. It is not a Ramada or Hilton in the trees but is a genuine four-star Treesort catering to both the timid and adventurous, locals and travellers. The Treehouses are only part of the 36 private acres of pasture and woods, right next to Siskiyou National Forest land & old-growth wilderness close by. The owners originated from Northern California and were genuine hippies from the 60s. They had experience in building treehouses and set about building a bed and breakfast business – which didn’t go down too well with the local Country officials who tried to shut them down on several occasions.
The resort is extremely communal and we enjoyed interacting with the other guests over breakfast around campfires in the evenings.
As well as chilling out around the resort there are outdoors activities ranging from the more sedentary horse riding to hiking in the beautiful woods to more adrenaline-inducing zip lining courses.
If you fall in love with treehouses the folks here can help you build your own dream treehouse.
