Nestled in the trees overlooking the Sacramento River Canyon minutes from restaurants and shopping. This two story home overlooking the Sacramento River Canyon is fully equipped for a memorable family getaway. Upstairs is a fully equipped kitchen, living room with comfy couch and recliners, with forest views out of every window. The spacious dining room is a great place for family meals and games. The upstairs bedroom is steps away from a full bath. Downstairs in the daylight basement is your TV room. The Fire TV is ready for you to access your own favorite television platforms as well as providing you with a wide variety of free channels. Tucked into cupboards and bookcases are games, and books ready for your cozy evening entertainment. The downstairs bedroom features a queen bed and a twin rollaway bed. The downstairs bathroom features an old fashioned clawfoot tub.
If you are planning a working vacation, the downstairs office if ready for you to spread out your work, making it easy to put in a few hours after a great morning fishing or hiking, or just lazing on the deck. High speed internet and a printer are provided. The office futon is made up and ready for a nap, or another sleeping space. The glass doors in the upstairs dining room open onto a unique multilevel deck that will give your family great spaces to come together for conversation and snacks, or to slip away with a book and binoculars. There is seating in the treehouse deck and upper deck, and a barbecue and outdoor dining area on the garden deck. If you brought your fishing gear, a beautiful walk down the hill and along River Avenue will take you to great fishing holes just below the cottage. The sounds of small town life outside your front door are the only clue that you’re steps away from restaurants and shopping. Expect to hear the train. We provide ear plugs to make sure you get a good night’s sleep. Because of the multilevel nature of Tree Top Cottage, both inside and out, we suggest that families with school-aged children are the best match to fully enjoy and appreciate your vacation stay.
Spacious rooms and lovely views of the Sacramento River Canyon make Tree Top Cottage the perfect place to work and play.

My husband and I bought this home in 2003, and completely renovated it using the beautiful straight grained red fir we salvaged for trim upstairs. The giant beams that hold up the porch, kitchen, and great room ceilings were taken out of the house in McCloud. I constantly marvel that in 1911, a railroad worker looked up at this piece of property and said, "I'm gonna build myself a house up there on that cliff!" This area of the canyon is stabilized be huge basaltic columns, but we've never figured out how they poured the giant concrete platform that the house sits on. Take a fun walk down to the river and look up from below and see if you might have been able to envision building your dream house up here. Head south on Dunsmuir Avenue to the motel, and turn left down the hill. If you're up for a longer walk, cross the bridge and stroll north on river Avenue to Tauhindauli Park. There is a paved path along the river through the park that switchbacks back to the river Avenue at the top of the hill. You'll walk through a little neighborhood to Dunsmuir Avenue and across the 800" bridge, which will take you back here to the Cottage. If you are enjoying some of the artwork here at the Cottage, you might want to visit Siskiyou Arts Museum downtown. We love our local artists and are sure you will too.
