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 16 years for an overnight stay. We try to maintain a mature atmosphere, conducive to a romantic, adult getaway.
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?
We have a one treehouse, Ananda, that is wheelchair accessible and ADA compliant.
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. Currently 5 of the 7 treehouses have a water flush toilet. The Bonbibi treehouse does not have a restroom facility on the interior and the Upper Pond treehouse has a composting 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 delicious homemade breakfast is included in your overnight stay, but we do not have a restaurant 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 stop in and buy a souvenir?
No. While we do have souvenirs available for purchase for our overnight guests, we suggest that you visit:

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.
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 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.).
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 delicious, homemade breakfast consisting of fresh baked items, hard-boiled eggs, a savory egg-based dish, our homemade granola, yogurt, milk, milk substitute, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and orange 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 certified 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.
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.
