TreeHouse Point is a private overnight lodging destination and event center outside of Fall City, Washington. The property is just a short drive from Seattle which makes it an ideal weekend getaway from the city. Beautifully in sync with the natural environment, Treehouse Point’s six treehouses and central lodge are set in forested land bordering the Raging River. TreeHouse Point is family-owned and built.
It was 2005 when Pete Nelson bought four forested parcels of land in Washington’s Snoqualmie Valley, which lies half an hour east of Seattle. His intention was to build a treehouse lodge, because he had been fascinated with treehouses since he was a young boy. He had managed to carve out a market and a living from his obsession, both by building treehouses for others, and by writing six books on the subject. He and his family tell the tale that shortly after purchasing the land, Pete took a walk on it one night when the moon was full and blue. The moonlight seemed to point him towards a magnificent spruce tree, and in the morning he began work on a treehouse in the spruce, which he later named The Temple of the Blue Moon.
Visits to Treehouse Point are by appointment only, even if guests are coming only for a tour of the treehouses. It is important to the Nelson family and their guests that the environment stays quiet and private. For this reason, animals are not permitted at the property. Children under the age of thirteen cannot stay overnight unless a group has rented the entire property. Children of all ages are welcome on the treehouse tours.
The central lodge on the property has one guestroom. Daily breakfast is served in the lodge, and there is a comfortable lounge with a fireplace where guests can play games or chat. The lodge has Wi-Fi for guests who wish to connect to the outside world. Photo: TreeHouse Point
