Do you allow children?
No. We are a retreat for relaxation, rejuvenation and reconnecting. Because of this, we ask that you do not bring any children under the age of 13 years for an overnight stay. We try to maintain a mature atmosphere, conducive to a romantic, adult getaway. We do, however, allow children to come visit for a tour.
Do you allow pets?
No. We do not accept pets, including dogs. We follow ADA guidelines regarding Service Animals, and Emotional Support Animals do not qualify. You agree to notify us when making your reservation should you have a qualified-under-ADA-guidelines Service Animal.
Are you wheelchair accessible?
No. We are not wheelchair accessible for overnight stays or for tours. Due to our rustic, forest environment, we cannot accommodate wheelchair visits at this time. We do have hopes to have a wheelchair accessible treehouse completed on our property in the next couple of years. Stay tuned!
Do the treehouses have bathrooms?
The treehouses share private bathrooms on the ground level. Each bathroom is complete with a shower, toilet, sink and shower toiletries. The Burl treehouse is currently the only treehouse with a water flush toilet.
How should I pack for my stay?
Your treehouse comes equipped with heat, air conditioning, electricity, bottled water, an electric tea kettle, comfy bed with bed linens, towels, and an MP3 player/radio.
Is there a restaurant onsite?
A homemade Continental Breakfast is included in your overnight stay, but we do not have a restaurant onsite. You are welcome to bring prepared snacks to keep in an ice-chest or make plans to visit one of the restaurants in the area. We do not allow cooking onsite.

Will Pete be there when I come to visit?
No, he most likely will not be. Because he is so busy jetting around the country, building and saving treehouses, he is something of a shooting star around TreeHouse Point.
Can you build me a treehouse?
No. TreeHouse Point is a Bed and Breakfast. But our sister company, Nelson Treehouse and Supply, covers:
  • The purchasing of Treehouse Parts and Plans
  • Consultation for having a treehouse built
  • The purchase of any merchandise
Can I come by and buy a souvenir?
No. While we do have souvenirs available for purchase for our overnight guests and confirmed tour ticket-holders, we suggest that you visit:
Do any of your treehouses accommodate more than two people?
The only treehouse that can sleep more than 2 people in a shared bed is Upper Pond Treehouse. This treehouse can sleep up to 4 people in a combination of 3 beds: 1 shared Queen and 2 lofted Singles. This treehouse is accessed via a ladder from the ground.
What should I see and do in the area during my visit?
Please check out our Weekend Travel Guide to the Snoqualmie Valley, curated by Emily Nelson and her husband, Patrick. They've broken down the best activities to do in the area from hiking, to dining, to paddle boarding!
I'm planning to picnic at TreeHouse Point during my stay. What should I pack and what can I borrow there?
Please check out our blog post on Tips for Packing the Perfect TreeHouse Point Picnic!
Should I book a tour of the treehouses if I am going to stay overnight?
No. As an overnight guest on the property, we recommend that you become friendly with the other overnight guests onsite, and offer to swap views of your treehouses. This option is free and is often easily done over a campfire or at breakfast in the Lodge. This option is also generally well received by other guests, who also want a peek in the other spaces.

We offer the guided tours in the narrow time-window between check out and check in, primarily for folks who could not secure an overnight reservation or who have children under our acceptable age for overnight guests. If you desire to attend a guided tour in addition to your stay, please note that space is limited and tickets will be required. Please also note that tickets go on sale on the 5th of the month prior and, particularly in the summer, sell out quickly. Tickets are sold via a 3rd party using the tour link on our website.

Should I rent a car for my visit?
We recommend that you rent a car to visit us, as there are no restaurants on premises (nor walkable from our location) and there are also many activities in the nearby area that are not accessible via public transit or on foot (i.e. Snoqualmie Falls, numerous hikes, floating the Snoqualmie River, visiting the wineries of Woodinville, etc.).
I heard the Nelsons are opening another treehouse resort in Washington. Where can I learn more about it?
Treehouse Resort and Spa will be a destination retreat located in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and centered on holistic wellness, play, and relaxation. This project will be ongoing as Pete's vision for the resort continues to expand.

Reservations will not be available until the project is complete, but to stay in the loop about resort updates and progress, please subscribe to the Treehouse Resort and Spa newsletter via their website:

Is there a way to send something special to a guest's room?
Yes. Please contact us at to learn more about our offerings.

Also, for your information, there are already fresh flowers in our guest rooms, though they are not for guests to take away. If you'd like to arrange a floral delivery, we are happy to recommend the services of Down to Earth/Snoqualmie Flowers. They may be reached directly at or 425-831-1772. (Please note that a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers in water is permitted in the room, but fresh flower petals, which can stain carpets, bedding, etc. are not permitted.)

Can you accommodate my dietary restrictions?
Your stay includes a homemade, Continental Breakfast consisting of fresh baked items, hard-boiled eggs or an egg-based dish, our homemade granola, yogurt, milk, milk substitute, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and juice. When making your reservation, please note any dietary restrictions in the appropriate field and our staff will try to accommodate you. Please note: we are not a gluten free kitchen, but can provide gluten free items with advance notice.
Are you open on holidays?
Although TreeHouse Point is open all seasons, and year-round, in order to afford our hard-working staff some time with their families, we are closed directly around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. If you wish to rent the entire property over one of these dates, please inquire at , and note that the cost is high.
Is it possible to have professional photos taken during my stay?
Please inquire with TreeHouse Point at for rates and policies regarding professional photography on the property.
What is the weather like at TreeHouse Point?
We are located in the Pacific NW, in a temperate rainforest environment. Fall, winter, and spring tend to be cool, gray, and wet. You may want to explore for some more specific information, noting that the nearest large cities are Issaquah or Seattle.

Rain is common from September - June and snow in the winter is uncommon at our elevation of 500 feet above sea level. Most of the trails in the Snoqualmie Valley remain open year round.

Although July and August are the driest months, most places here also do not tend to have air conditioning, including TreeHouse Point. Personally, we find our rainy climate the perfect compliment to being in a treehouse, because it makes you want to stay in and enjoy your room.

Does Pete Nelson have any retreats like TreeHouse Point in other parts of the country?
Yes! Pete partnered with restaurateur Laurel Waters to open Treehouse Utopia, a luxury treehouse retreat in Texas Hill Country. You can learn more and plan your visit at
