If I ever harbored any doubts the Pacific Northwest is a magical place, those fears were well and settled this past Saturday.

The hubbers and I attended an open house for Treehouse Point, a truly unique place located just 20ish miles east of Seattle.

Owners Pete & Judy Nelson constructed a one of a kind lodging experience in the lush PNW jungle.

Perched high in the pines are the kind of treehouses one only dreams of building.


Climb the stairs or scale the ladders, and inside you'll find a cozy stateroom unlike any other you've seen before.

Imagine lying in bed, gazing out into the dense green forest -- not a ground level -- but up in the canopy, sharing an evening in the woods with owls, squirrels and chipmunks.

Each treehouse is completely different. 
This one is built around the tree's trunk!


Most have balconies providing unobstructed views of the forest.

The autumn sunlight filtering in through the trees lent a beautifully dreamy quality....

....although one can easily imagine how enchanting it would be to watch the rain cascade down around you, whilst cozied up in your own private nest. 

The treehouses are scattered across the scenic property, some right along the river's edge.

Whether it's a peaceful retreat in contemplative solitude, or a romantic weekend away you seek, Treehouse Point would be a remarkable way to experience the PNW.

{ Would you stay in a treehouse? }

Psssst!  Don't forget -- send in your Look by Wednesday to be a part of our Virtual Fashion Show!

    What a clever idea. They look amazing :) But it is too much like camping and the closest I get to camping is staying at the Marriott Courtyard (He! He!) I am such an hotel snob these days!

    Have a lovely day, T. :)

    I think this calls for a road trip to Seattle. My husband and I spent a weekend up there last summer and have been wanting to go back. This would be awesome.
