Out'n'About is an veritable treehouse wonderland!
Out'n'About is a truly unique place. Part of it's uniqueness has to
do with that it is a home grown and based business. There are no
locks on the treehouse doors. It is not a Ramada or Hilton in the
trees, but is a genuine four star Treesort catering to both the
timid and adventurous, locals and travelers.
The Treehouses are only
part of the 36 private acres of pasture and woods, right
next to Siskiyou National Forest land & old growth
wilderness close by. We have a Morgan Horse breeding ranch
along with our riding horse stable, two rocking horses, 4
dogs, & 1 cat usually running around the property. Very
family oriented and friendly you can find everything from a
calm peacefull solitude, to a sceaming ride on the ziplines
or giant Tarzan Swing.
History of the Treesort
It took eight years of hard fought legal battles with
Josephine county officials before they finally recognized
the soundness of our designs and gave us our needed permits
to be legal. We were ordered to shut down our treehouse
rentals several times, and at peak pitch actually ordered to
tear down the treehouses at one point.
So to keep the business going we sold very expensive one of
a kind dated t-shirts- "Treeshirts" as we call them. We
could not allow the general public to officially stay in the
treehouses... but we could invite our friends. So everybody
who came had to become our friend, one of the now many "Tree
Musketeers". People from all over the world would treeserve
a date to be put on a certain tree-shirt. they would then
come here on that date, get their treeshirt and become a
Tree Musketeer, our friend, spend the night in a treehouse
and Michael would sign their shirt.
We no longer have to sell shirts to earn money and do not
have to limit guests to our "friends", but we still endeavor
to do so. So please feel free to come spend the night,
become a Treemusketeer, and if you decide to get a treeshirt
Michael will still sign and date it if you like!
The Treehouse Institute , established over the summer of
1996, is the only place in the world that offers avocational
instruction in basic engineering, design and construction
methods for building treehouses. There are also plenty of
other things to learn and have fun with here. We are like a
summer camp for whole family. The courses are tailored to
include everyone in family enjoyment. Our experienced
certified staff give zip line extravaganzas, guided horse
back riding, treehouse construction,l easily arranged. The
craft courses are taught by local artists on site here. The
ones that require the shortest amount of time to arrange are
the very popular tie-dye and tile mosaic classes. We have a
performance stage that can be used by kids quite often just
for playing, but not so much as the organized classes.
