Our old growth temperate rain forest homestead begins the wild and uncut wilderness that extends 40 miles to the Canadian boarder and beyond just as far. Before us it was part of Cascadian Farm (the organic food brand which still operates a lovely ice cream, esspresso, and berry stand adjacent to us), and before that it was one of the first farms this deep into the Cascade Range supplying food for the crews building the dams. We offer both a yurt and tree house.  You will be on our small farm/homestead that is backed up to the Mount Baker National Forest with undisturbed forest all north all the way to the Canadian border to the north, Baker lake to the north west, and to the North Cascades National park to the North east. The Skagit River flows to the south of us. If you like freezing cold glacier water, we'll provide you with a map where you can walk down to the river to cool off at a safe swimming hole. Guests love staying here "Such a glorious and relaxed stay. The yurt really was a palace, it was so spacious and had many thoughtful amenities. We hiked on the mountain, forded a river and played with Hiland cows, all within walking distance of the yurt. I was worried that it would be cold but we were toasty and were even able to cook full course meals. Terry and Erin were the perfect hosts, responsive and yet non-instrusive. Thank you so much for letting us have this experience!"

Good and cheap option
Pros: low cost, great location, close to amazing hikes, close to restaurants and stores. Cons: lots of spiders inside, hard to find if getting in at dark.

Camping with animals!
We loved the treehouse. It was perfect for camping in the Pacific Northwest, as it was a great shelter for when it rained—much better than a tent! We LOVED the farm animals—when we were there, there was a young chicken family, a beautiful cow, some very friendly cats, and a herd of goats. Plus an outdoor kitchen and a shower on the way, I believe!

STUMP HOUSE IS THE BEST! Loved IT!!
I just loved staying at Stump House. It was a very peaceful and inspiring place to be. You feel like you are a part of everything around you, in tune with the Universe. And the outdoor shower was to die for!!!I highly of it!!!

I would not recommend staying here as a single woman. The host, Terry, seems to be using his listing as a way to meet people.

Cool place. Unfortunately not for tall people. If you are above 5”9 you will have to sleep on an angle. Price seemed a bit steep compared to other campsites

Very unique, but also very limited.
Sleeping in a floating treehouse was definitely a very unique "outdoor experience"! The site fit our very specific needs for that night--a as a quick overnight stop close to the North Cascades Wilderness Info Center--but... the site didn't have much room for a tent, or a stove, or a firepit--so if you're looking for a prolonged "camping" experience, then you may want to look elsewhere.

Not bad but not great either
Overall, the place was okay. Host was very kind and friendly. There isn't much space for true camping. It was also extremely buggy! Bring citronella candles and tons of bug spray if you can. The treehouse was neat, but we decided not to sleep in it because it was small. The instructions could've indicated that we were literally driving into someone's backyard. We were hoping we were in the right place and not invading someone's actual property as a mistake. The upkeep of the space could use some work... lots of weeds, overgrowth, and such.

Stay on edge of NW rainforest
Very relaxed environment, tucked slightly in the woods away from the main property to allow for some privacy. Treehouse takes some effort to lift upwards, so I didn't take it all the way to the top - had to leave early and didn't want to wake everyone up.

Loved our trip!
My roommate and I loved this weekend trip! We checked in and the host showed us where everything was as well as introduced us to all the little animals on their land (Jonny the rooster was our fav). The treehouse is 6’x6’ so there’s no room for a tent but we laid out a tarp and put our sleeping equipment down and it worked perfectly. It rained through the night and a few drops would hit you here and there but all our belongings stayed dry with no extra coverage. Would highly recommend to anyone!

Family of 6!
Really has everything you need for a couple campers. We're a family of 6 . The owner was very nice and helpful when we needed directions and with the kids constant questions. We only needed extra utensils and dishes. Everything else was there. It was a bit colder than we expected, but we managed to stay warm next to the wood burning stove. Electric blankets made for comfy sleep. Kids enjoyed the cow, ducks, chickens and cat. The rope swing, trampoline, and tether ball also had rave reviews. I would love to experience in berry season and the farm is open.

We had a amazing stay at the yurt! The mountain views were just magical. We enjoyed seeing the chickens and ducks in the mornings and gremlin’s visits at night. The yurt had just about everything we needed to cook meals there and the electric blankets kept us warm at night. Thank you for providing such a lovely place to stay!!

My family enjoyed our stay! Terry was very kind and a great host. Our 18 month old loved walking around the farm barefoot and eating fresh apples. It’s definitely a unique place to stay! We left our game unsolved case studies for you to play too :)

Fun treehouse but it isn't secluded at all, visitors are directly behind the owner's house, basically their driveway. It's not a problem if you know that and have those expectations! Cool design, it was fun to hoist up!

Such a great stay! The treehouse was easy to find with the directions & map location. It was so much fun being able to stay in the treehouse (very well built and the bug net was an awesome bonus) and the farm was beautiful, with mountain views. We loved the unique experience!

Wonderful adventure
Quite possibly the best time we’ve had on our journey. My kids stayed in the treehouse and I in my van. Terry was such a fabulous host. We picked fresh plums from his trees and the kids played with the cats and swing. I can’t say enough of this charming place. Absolutely will return.

This place was perfect for our car tent! A nice field to park in, cute farm animals, and close to North Cascades National Park! We’d totally stay here again!

A great spot and lovely farm. The bathroom is still a work in progress but we were very comfortable in the treehouse. Terry and Erin were kind and accommodating communicators. Wish we could have met them but our schedules didn’t work out with our short stay!

My sister and I had such a fun, comfortable stay at the yurt! Terry was an awesome host, we even had the pleasure of joining him for a home cooked dinner. What a delicious treat! The beds are clean and comfortable. We didn’t light a fire in the wood stove, but I am sure it would have been incredibly cozy. The location is perfect if you’re looking at hiking in the cascades as we were. 10/10 would recommend!

Moves like a boat and floats like a
In the northern cascades, before the summer snowy peaks and National Park, and behind some blueberry bushes. There is a treehouse that moves like a boat and floats like a swing. It’s compact with enough room for one adult of an American build. There is a mosquito net, which is handy unless you are looking to appear like a child with chickenpox. There are other amenities to, like a composting toilet and running water. Everything has a rustic, organic flare. If your young in age or perhaps only heart, and particularly if of the adventurous type, you can replicate my unique and enjoyable experience, for a night, when it's kinda warm, and there is no rain at all.

So fun!
Such a fun experience! The treehouse was a lot of fun to stay in, just for the novelty of sleeping safely suspended in the trees - looking out and seeing the stars and trees all around me. Terry was super hospitable and gave me all the info I needed when I arrived and made sure I was good to go. The sink and toilet were totally functional and super conveniently located to the treehouse. Also, it was fun to see and hear the rooster and ducks in the morning! I just wish I had more time to check out the river that is on the property. Definitely would recommend to anyone coming through the area!

What a great stay!! Terry was so kind and the treehouse was a blast! It was fun to see all of the projects he has going around the farm and to hear about them over coffee one morning. We'll definitely be back! Thanks Terry!!
