Evergreen hideout

Sleep in the sweet spot between the clouds and the forest floor of the Columbia River Gorge on the Washington/Oregon border at Skamania Lodge’s two cabin-style treehouses, designed by architecture firm MG2. Cedar walls and an indoor-outdoor fireplace give them a modern forest feel. Their location, 20 feet in the air, makes for stellar owl’s-eye panoramas and the property has four miles of hiking trails and a zipline (for those craving even more tree time).
