The Observatory tree-house is a vacation experience that quite literally rises above the rest! Built not for the faint of heart, this tree-top adventure offers the best views of the Red River Gorge.

The space
Once you trek up to your new home in the swaying Eastern White Pine, you may feel exposed to the unforgettable raw nature of the canopy!  This tree house is designed for able-bodied folks and is NOT meant for unsupervised or small children.

Ascend the wandering wooden staircases into the canopy to begin your exploration of this pirate ship in the trees.  You`ll discover spectacular views from a glass bedroom with built-in skylights, a screened-in hammock lounge with plenty of storage, and a cozy kitchen with a wrap-around porch.  As you navigate from room to room through floating walkways and steep ship ladders, you may be wondering what it must have been like to create such an epic abode...

Guest access
Access to Wifi on our red office porch and in the office parking lot.

Other things to note
Kitchen: The Observatory kitchen has a gas stove, french press coffee pot, cookware, dishware, soap and kitchen linens . Above the sink you’ll find a 5-gallon water dispenser for your cooking and cleaning needs. We supply two 5-gallon jugs of potable water during your stay. For perishables, a 75 L Yeti cooler is provided. Please bring your own ice.

Living/Dining: Screened-in lounge on the lowest level with a futon and two hammocks, a porch and bar-style seating for two on the mid-level, and the most spectacular views from the highest level on the Observation deck that leads to the bedroom.

Bathroom: Observatory has a private composting outhouse. You are also welcome to use our guest shower and bathroom at the RRG Headquarters at any time during your stay.

Bedroom: A full bed above the trees and a full-futon in the lower hammock lounge. Please note that while this tree-house was designed for two, there is room for two additional guests in the hammock lounge.

Additional Amenities: Weber charcoal grill, wall heater in the bedroom, solar powered kitchen lights and solar charging station for small electronics, battery-powered lanterns, and a private fire pit with camp chairs.

**Important** While we allow dogs at our rentals, we do not recommend them for Observatory. Your furry friends will most likely not be fans of the steep ladders/stairs.

**Important**
Accessing Observatory tree house requires a drive up a steep gravel road. Most vehicles make it up the hill, but we do recommend 4WD and high clearance. If your vehicle does not make it, we are happy to give you and your things a ride up the hill!
