Why just watch reruns of the TV show "Treehouse Masters" when you can tour TreeHouse Point, a renowned tree house hotel built by Pete Nelson and his crew?
A spruce tree holds the first tree house built here: Temple of the Blue Moon. Trillium has 80 windows, while The Upper Pond contains a bunk bed and a dumbwaiter to bring up patrons’ luggage. The Nest (bird-themed) was built during a workshop, and it’s the only tree house with an outhouse. The interior of Bonbibi is painted to look like a boat; and guests of The Burl must traverse a 40-foot-long steel bridge to arrive at their quarters, the only accommodation with a flush toilet and a sink.
Info: TreeHouse Point offers a handful of tours each week for $35 per person; the minimum recommended age is 4. Tours book up fairly far in advance and last one hour. Overnight stays are geared toward adults. Guests must be 13 or older, and a tree house stay with shared bath can cost some $400 a night. You'll also need to book far in advance, as reservations fill up fast.
