Largely constructed from materials lovingly and gently harvested on-site, the Yurt at Rivendell is a sanctuary of peace and serenity, a place for rejuvenation and inspiration. The yurt began as a rustic structure utilizing lumber from from trees selectively harvested to protect the health of the forest. But, the more Roy worked on the Yurt the more it spoke to him letting him know how to proceed and what it should become -- Resulting in this phenomenally peaceful and stress-free wilderness sanctuary where the sun, the moon and the stars wink at you through the gentle undulations of the 100 year-old Douglas Firs Trees or through the ambient ether of the adjoining meadows. Relish the radiance of tranquility in your sojourn to heartsease and inspiration! NOTE: While we do accept Instant Bookings for both our Tree House and Yurt there may very rarely be a conflict with a booking received earlier from another site when the HipCamp calendar has not been updated to reflect that booking. In that case, we default to the earliest booking and work with the guest to see if there are other dates which will work.

We had a great time at the treehouse! The woodburning stove kept us toasty and warm the entire time. The cabin was equipped with everything we needed. Its the perfect place to relax and unplug (no cell service). We would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful place!
Fabulous yurt in a gorgeous setting. We had a great time. Please note that the bed is rather small - I guess it's a double but feels slightly smaller than a standard double. So you will be cozy with your sleeping mate (hence the title Romantic Wilderness Yurt:).

Super rad place
What a magical place!! The hosts had everything we needed and even gave great directions to the place and I never felt lost. The hot tub is beautiful and bigger than I thought. Everything was exactly where I thought it would be and they even had some good music to use in the cd and cassette player! The location was great, the place was great, we loved it!

Quiet, peaceful getaway
We had a wonderful stay at the Romantic Luxury Wilderness Yurt. Breakfasts out on the deck, day hikes in the area, evenings in the hot tub, everything clean and tidy... It was what we were looking for and more. We'll definitely be booking more of our vacations here!

What a cozy place to stay. It rained a bit so we were happy to have a place to snuggle down with a good book. My kids loved listening to cassette tapes. The Star Trek sound tracks were their favorites but the was something for everyone. My husband even found a tape with a friend's band from high school on it. The only thing missing was a good place to play a board game we brought with us - but you could easily get by playing the cards or Yahtzee we found there. A stay here would be a little different in every season & all equally enjoyable. We may be back!

Nice cozy space
The space was cozy and comfy. We had a nice stay overall. Under these times, the double deck and outdoor space immediately outside the treehouse is greatly appreciated and was a nice space for our kid to play independently with us nearby. We were pleasantly surprised there was a small propane grill. Host was responsive and friendly. Easy and quick communication. There are a couple of dogs on the property which the host told us about. Super friendly and sweet. One hung out with us on the porch most of the day. Location- we knew there would be other buildings closeby on the property but wasn’t expecting so much activity during the day. There was sawing or milling on the property just beyond the treeline from mid-morning to sundown. (We were there for 2 nights) While we couldn’t see it, it was constant background noise. So it’s not quiet or isolation but was fine for our stay.So even though we were disconnected (and had no cell service), the location is not remote or secluded.

Beautiful, private and rejuvenating
Our stay at the Tree House Tranquil-A-Tree was amazing! After several very stressful months, we needed a getaway that was quiet and rejuvenating which is exactly what we received during our stay. The craftsmanship of the yurt, deck, and cedar hot tub was beautiful. We enjoyed reading books on the lovely deck and soaking in the hot tub. Additionally, the hosts obviously took great care in taking precautions and keeping their guests safe during Covid-19 which we definitely appreciated. We will definitely be back!

Relaxing... but expensive.
The treehouse was quirky, very unique. We loved the little spiral staircase and the large patio/ balcony space. The hot tub was nice, but old and a bit smelly. But we still spent a good amount of time in it and throughout the house reading and playing cards. Overall it was a very relaxing trip. I would have liked some more information on trails to do nearby, We just walked the dirt road we came in from both ways and didn’t find anything in the way of a footpath, but the walls were pretty and we were accompanied by the sweet neighbor dog, “Loki.” The only other downside/surprise for me, was how close to the main house it was. From the pictures I expected it to be tucked away into the forest a bit, and had the impression in might be on a hill overlooking Mt Hood (or Rainer?), but it was a side road of the property, right across a grass field from the main house. Despite these few disappointments we still really enjoyed are trip, but for how much we spent for three nights, we felt it could have been more secluded, with more forest trail/hiking options.

Home away from home
Treehouse getaway was exactly what our little family needed. Not often we can say any time away with young children is relaxing, but this truly was. We had an amazing time and will definitely be back. Thanks for making us feel safe and at home.

We were so comfortable and at peace here, it was exactly the vibe reset that our family needed. From the evening fire pit to the hours spent in the hot tub, time went by a little slower here and we loved every minute of it.

Fantastic!
Absolutely fantastic cabin and a stay that will be hard to forget! That tree house surely has a lot of charm. Put on some old jazz on the cassette player, go for a hot tub soak, cook some good food while the fire stove crackles... The surrounding nature is also great to explore. I had fun going on dirt roads with my 4WD car. Thanks so much Roy and Rebecca for sharing your incredible cabin!

Remote, Peaceful, Cozy cabin
This was exactly the type of peace, solitude, and cozy cabin getaway we were seeking for NYE. The cabin is about 30 ish minutes from Hood River up a gorgeous winding road with beautiful views. Plan to disconnect completely as there will not be service or wifi. Download tunes and bring a tiny speaker if you want your music. Stock up on wine and groceries before arriving so you have all you may need. The cabin uses a log stove for heat and it really warms up the space quickly. The hot tub was roomy, perfect and private. The best part was the absolute silence and darkness at night and waking with the gorgeous morning light and the sound of squirrels on the roof. It was a dream! THANK YOU! Communication with the host was perfect as well! We left a puzzle which fits perfect on the table and some local honey and tea for the next visitors. :-) Enjoy!

Amazing Get Away
Amazing spot - set on a wonderfully private property. The yurt is very well kept and comfortable with an amazing hot tub on the private deck. Perfect spot for a weekend get away with my husband and our dog. Owners are very communicative and the site caretaker is very kind (and has the sweetest sheep dog, Sweetie too!). Can’t wait to return soon.

Rebecca and Roy were incredibly friendly and generous hosts! The yurt itself was perfect, gorgeous, romantic and we will be back! I was provided directions from the hosts, however both my partner and I found the directions confusing, and as we were coming in the dark it made it extra hard to see signs. Perhaps directions that included bigger landmarks to look for would be helpful. The caretaker was really helpful in providing directions and making us feel welcomed! Thank you Rebecca and Roy!

Fantastic space, even in the winter! We enjoyed romping around the property and nearby hiking trails, ice caves, fishing access points, etc. The property keeper, Mark, helped with directions into town, warned us of what wildlife was out to be smart about (bears and a cougar with cubs) and was kind enough to offer anything else we could need while up there and still giving us space to use the site to our liking. The hot tub was clean and in an amazing setting PLUS the view of the stars on any clear night was just what we were looking for! Very sweet and quaint experience in the mountains overall!

We stayed at the Yurt for 2 nights and were wishing for more! The winding road that leads to the yurt will put you in the right mindset for your stay. You will get beautiful views of Mt. Adams. The directions provided by the hosts are easy to follow and nice to have. The tree house and the yurt are on the same property. Both structures have a lot of privacy. We forgot the tree house was even there at times. Both structures are so unique. We would love to come back and stay at the treehouse. The yurt will have you staring at the construction of the ceiling. It is very cool. The deck was the perfect place to relax. The hot tub was a highlight for us. We loved using the stereo to play our CDs and iPod tunes (we brought an aux cord). The kitchen is stocked with all the tools needed to make an awesome meal. I wish we would have planned ahead to use the grill on the deck. The coffee maker does not require filters (bonus). The yurt is so comfortable we really had no reason to leave. But we did spend a beautiful afternoon at Hood River watching windsurfers / kiteboarders. Mark, the caretaker/groundskeeper, was so welcoming. He made us feel right at home. We hope to return.

The yurt is a wonderful little place off a winding, primitive road in Washington. The only other people nearby are any guests in the nearby treehouse and the caretaker, Mark, who is friendly and ready to provide suggestions for day excursions and the quicker back ways to get there. Everything was pristine, the skies are dark (great for stargazing), the land is quiet, and you can see crystal clear views of both Mount Hood and Mount Adams (I think, I never got great at telling them apart) along the roads to get to the yurt. It's an excellent basecamp for exploring Washington and Oregon, only just over an hour from Portland, and well situated to venture into nearby national forests. Stop by a grocery store on your way in (or make a ~45min round trip to one when you forget) because there's a full kitchen with a coffee maker, gas stove, full fridge/freezer, and microwave. Dishes and linens are also provided. Also, it's super dog friendly! We brought our three dogs, imagining we would have them on-leash if we ever went outside, but as Mark said - "Where are they gonna go?" They had a blast running around the property, startling/being startled by some wild turkeys. Mark also offered to let them out for a walk in the event my husband and I needed to stay away for more than a few hours. It's a great, secluded place for some peace and quiet without giving up too many of the comforts of home.
