An intimate and rustic alternative to traditional hotel lodging, TreeHouse Point near Seattle provides an option for individuals, couples, and groups seeking style and comfort in a secluded wooded setting. For anyone who missed out on having the ultimate tree fort as a kid, this place provides the perfect chance to make up for lost time.
Built high in the boughs of towering evergreens, the comfy cabins in the sky allow for bird’s eye views of the scenic, wooded property, which is located just outside rural Issaquah, about a half hour east of Seattle on Interstate 90. The small grouping of intricately designed tree houses each has its own unique design and character. The slogan for the place is “Be in a Tree.” Each solid, shingled shelter is indeed perched high in its own tree or group of trees, providing privacy.

Two-story Trillium is impressive simply for its walls of windows and sheer size. Upper Pond looks like a fairy tale cottage lifted off its foundation and perched in a tree, compete with a pitched roof and curved deck out front.
Individual character is evident inside, too, as each unit is artfully decorated with original artwork and outfitted charming vintage furniture, including handmade beds. While each branch-bound dwelling has a small bathroom, those facilities are meant for nighttime convenience; the large, shared bath provides for showering, blow-drying and overall bathroom use.
Individual unit rates range from $150 to $215 per night in high season to an off-season low of $120 to $175 per night. TreeHouse Point and its lovely grounds can also be booked for weddings and events.
