Why It’s Unique: Tucked 50 feet up in the air in a centuries-old cedar and bordering Gifford Pinchot National Forest, the Cedar Creek Treehouse is outfitted with a sleeping loft, kitchen, and glass-enclosed observation room with indoor hammock.
Porch swings and log beds lend rustic charm to the otherwise luxurious cabins. One-room units have fireplaces, jetted tubs, and mountain views.
