 WEATHER, only newcomers and fools predict the weather in Oregon! During the summer months it is usually warm to hot days with relative low humidity and cool nights. It can rain at any time during the year here, but usually only rarely in July and August. The average & current weather can be checked at our recommended Weather link.

 HIKING AND BIKING TRAILS are accessible right from our facility and many others are in close driving range.

 DO WE HAVE AIR CONDITIONING, PHONES or TV in the rooms?? Sorry not available... We do have a phone in the Main Lodge that may be used by our guests if absolutely needed, and most cell phones seem to work here in spots, also we offer free wireless internet access if you have a laptop or need.

As part of the main lodge, both BALCONTREE and MASTREE have attached bathrooms as well. There is a centrally located bathhouse for everybody else quite close at hand.

We do ask that you clean up after yourself to a reasonable extent please- we can clean the floors, bathrooms, change bed linen and towels when clearing a unit after you leave of course, but we know how 'stuff' happens, and expect to be notified if a major mess ensues that you might need help with while staying with us. Our treefairy crew appreciates it!

 So what should I bring?
Besides the obviously healthy and adventurous attitude you already have (or you wouldn't get this far), please bring a good sense of humor and whatever normal travel gear you might usually do anywhere else depending on your interests and activitrees, i.e.; clothing and footwear for both warm and cool weather, toiletries and accruements (like a bike, flashlight, camera, personal sound or video system and books, plus any consumables you like to have with you) etc. Sorry, no pets at any time is our policy for the benefit of all who are concerned.


We do thank all who PLEASE phone ahead if planning a visit to participate in our activitrees.
Then we have an idea, a treeservation of sorts to better welcome you!
