Rainforest Hotel Built in the Trees: Tree House Point


Have you ever dreamed of living in the trees, high in the canopy of an old growth forest? This hotel, Tree House Point, offers private cabins in the air just 22 miles from Seattle WA in Fall City. There are six tree house cabins to choose from: The Temple of the Blue Moon, Trillium, The Nest, The Upper Pond, Bon Bibi or The Burl, each with their own charms. The Temple of the Blue Moon was the inaugural cabin, hand built by Peter Nelson who, with his wife Judy, runs the unique lodge. Peter had been building tree houses for 20 years when he realized that others would like to experience the unique pleasure of sleeping in the trees. And if you like, you can also take a workshop to learn how to build your own tree house. Staying here is like taking a trip back to your childhood. Except the digs are much more luxurious! Fantastic natural wood furniture, great reading nooks, soft beds – all in the middle of the forest. Lots of side trips and activities are available. The main lodge has a couple of other rooms, as well as a dining hall for breakfast and a charming library. But the tree houses are the star of this hotel!


The Burl hugs an old growth tree. Aren’t those lights on the vine just charming?


The Trillium: It’s a double decker loft tree house!
