Southern Oregon this Appraiser's perspective

May 19th, 2010 12:02 AM
As you can tell from my blogs I've been spending a fair amount of time in the Cave Junction area. I love how the history of Oregon is brought forward in the names of things. Takilma is one of those things. I've been on Takilma road driving comparables, but didn't realize until I had a job on Takilma road that there is a small community in Takilma, Oregon. If you've never lived away from a city, you might even miss the signs that there is a community there. One sign you can't miss as you drive down Takilma road is the one for Out 'n' About Treesort. After I finished inspecting the little 1940's cabin built on big flat river rocks, I drove down to see what a Treesort was.

What I found was a delicious blend of Peter Pan and Robin Hood. Multistory walk ways connecting both small and large treehouses centered around a Lodge.

If you're looking for a great place for the annual family vacation, you probably should start well in advance. There are plenty of activities for youngsters and oldsters alike. Whatever your height tolerance is you'll find treehouses closer to the ground,

and those you will have to crane your neck to look up at. My favorite part - I reserve the right to change my mind once I've actually stayed in a tree house - was the mural background

on the north wall of the Lodge which looks as though it might serve as the background for some kind of theatrical production during the height of visitor season.

If you get a chance to stop in for a visit tell them the appraiser who asked if she could take some photos for her blog sent you. The receptionist's only caution when I asked her permission to photograph the treesort was "Please stay on the ground".......

After snapping my fill of photos, I wandered away leaving the Rope Swings, Ropes Course, Zip line, Horseback Riding, and Wooden Pirate Ship behind me, I noticed this reminder on the front bumper of a charging electric cart.
