Why just watch the Animal Planet show "Treehouse Masters" when you can tour Treehouse Point, a renowned treehouse hotel with six treehouses built by Pete Nelson and his crew?

A spruce tree holds the first treehouse 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 treehouse with an outhouse. Bonbibi is painted inside to look like a boat, while guests traverse a 40-foot long steel bridge before arriving at The Burl, the only accommodation with a flush toilet and a sink.

Info: Treehouse Point offers a handful of tours each week for $25 per person; the minimum age is 4 although infants in arms do not require tickets. (Overnight stays are geared toward adults. Guests must be 13 or older, and it’s best to book as far in advance as you can; check FAQs for detailed information.)
