We recently scouted out a property for Hipcamp just east of the little town of Monroe, Washington. It was easily one of the most unique places we’ve stayed at.
You’ll see the treehouse from the driveway as you pull up. If you’re anything like us, you’ll probably blink your eyes several times to make sure that what you’re looking at is real. It is.
Head on up the mossy (and when it’s raining, muddy) footpath, kick your shoes off, and prepare to settle in for a cozy evening. The inside of the treehouse has small, warm lights that reminded me of fireflies. The treehouse is small, but even with two of us sharing the space, we had more than enough room to spread out. You can hang out in the lower area of the tree house where there’s two soft chairs and pillows and a table and is the perfect place for curling up with a good book. When you’re ready for bed, just climb up the short, spiral wooden ladder. The bed was comfortable and we slept soundly, woken only once to the sounds of coyotes running wild somewhere in the forest behind the treehouse.
In the morning, we woke to the natural light that slowly filled the space from the roof above. It was a really peaceful way to wake up. It was still raining out but it was light out and after making coffee and breakfast, we wanted to explore. We met the dogs, the donkey, the horse (apparently there’s a pig but we never met him/her) and also saw the other places for rent: two small micro-shelters as well as a camping area and a whole other treehouse, the Hashtag Treehouse. Each of them is unique and if we had more time, we would have liked to stay at them all.
If you get a chance to stay here, please let us know what you think!
