We had an awesome time staying in Birdy! The bus was incredibly comfortable and cozy (the bed felt like sleeping on a cloud :) Chris and Bruce were very hospitable hosts, as well as great communicators. Our favorite moment of our stay was probably stargazing next to the pond. We hope to return to Birdy sometime down the road.

I cannot recommend staying at Birdy enough. I stayed for one night following a concert at the Gorge. It’s a quick drive from Seattle and only a 45 minute drive to the Gorge amphitheater. The bus and site are very clean. The oasis Birdy lives in is serene and such an escape from every day life. The stars at night were breathtaking. The location is very windy due to the neighboring wind farms but the bus is protected from a significant amount of wind. If you need a very quiet place to sleep I would bring earplugs. The wind does cause some noise at night but we were able to sleep through it easily.

This trip is a return visit to this beautiful land. A green watery oasis in the middle of desert. Beside a reflecting pond with a burbling brook right next to your sleeping space. This is my happy place.

We stayed in the bus and loved it: super clean, lots of little details and extras to make the stay comfortable (like a spigot jar full of fresh, iced lemon and mint water), doggo friendly, and great hosts who made us feel welcome (and would be safe for women, LGBTQIA, and POC folks FYI - which is important!). We’ll definitely be back. Really can’t recommend it enough. <3

Very peaceful spot. Private and Scenic. Something different. We enjoyed our one night stay, nice propane grill and cooking outside. We would highly recommend for someone who enjoys camping. The only thing we lacked is a trash can outside, but the owners did take our trash at the end of stay.
The school bus was a Creative idea!
