Out ‘n’ About Treehouse Treesort in Takilma, Ore., offers one of the most unique lodging experiences in the country. Featuring 18 treehouses and myriad platforms reaching at most 47-f high, the resort combines childlike fancy with outdoor adventure. A popular destination for nature enthusiasts, the resort collaborated with Precision Structural Engineering Inc. to help design several new additions, including treehouses, forts and bridges.

Treesort owner, designer and builder Michael Garnier worked with the team to ensure all new buildings met safety standards, such as weight and wind limits. Also featured at the resort is the Treehouse Institute of Takilma, a high school built into an oak grove overlooking the East Fork Illinois River.
