First off, Doug and Brenda have a very special place, here, and not just the treehouse, though the treehouse is pretty amazing on its own! Their property is lovely and peaceful, and you get the real sense that they care deeply about the horses they are looking after. They are both kind and generous, and were more than helpful when it came to any questions or suggestions for the area.
The treehouse itself is wonderful. We only had one night in it, and decided we simply had to pitch our little 2 person tent up on the platform. What an awesome experience. I'd say that if you're comfortable with heights and have a small enough tent, you absolutely must do it. There is the option to pitch beneath the impressive tree, however, and the space around the trunk with the table and fire barrel is quite nice. Doug has a camp sink set up near the table, which is convenient, and there's an outhouse just a short walk away at the barn.
We'd stay here again in a heartbeat, and cannot recommend it highly enough. It's a truly unique site in a really beautiful area that more people need to see! Thanks Doug and Brenda (and Radar!) for everything!
We stayed here one night, and the cabin is just as charming and cozy as it appears in the picture. LaVonne has added some nice touches, such a solar lamp for light, while still maintaining a comfortable, rustic feel. We loved the fact that the cabin is situated near all the animals as well, it was great having all the sheep, chickens - and yes, even pigs and a llama! - nearby. It made for a great atmosphere!
The cabin is nice and close to both the outdoor shower and the outhouse, which were both built well and nicely maintained. Also, there's a huge field, and one of the best (and biggest!) fire pits we'd seen, complete with a pile of wood and some stumps for seating. We had a great time here, and LaVonne is an extremely pleasant and helpful hostess. Highly recommend this cabin, and LaVonne's property in general!
We spent one night here, and it was awesome. It was rainy and cool, and our host, Dave, set up a huge tarp over the equally huge picnic table in preparation for our arrival. He also helped us drag over some brush for a fire while giving us a tour of the place, which has some pretty sweet views along the river. Though it was rainy, our tent area was nice and clear and close to the neatly maintained outhouse, and we even managed to keep a fire going in the drizzle thanks to Dave's assistance and advice.
We'd advise caution to those traveling without 4wheel drive, our car had some difficulty going down the path to the site, and definitely going back up! Dave even put down fresh gravel, and we still got stuck, but being the awesome dude that he is, he drove all the way from Seattle with a friend's Jeep to help us, AND brought us lunch to boot!
All in all, the Landing was great, but Dave was even greater. Cannot recommend highly enough!
It was extremely windy here the one night we stayed, so we opted not to pitch our tent out on the jetty. The view is great and I must echo what others have said about the bathrooms. They're very clean and I particularly liked the little homey, personal touches. Though we weren't there on a night that the fires got lit, there was still the opportunity to lounge in the hammocks and enjoy the night sky.
As soon as we pulled up, we were greeted warmly and offered a place at the fire. What a great group of people, and they even gave us their big tent, which was made even more cozy by a pair of puppies scampering about. The area is well cared for, with lights around to make it easier to find your way in the dark, but not intrusive enough to detract from the amazing night sky. They even built their own outdoor shower! Awesome place, awesome folks, wish we could have stayed longer!
