Treehouse Point [3] is an eco resort outside of Seattle, adjacent to a river and located in a beautiful fern-covered forest. Owned and operated by Pete and Judy Nelson, Treehouse Point’s mission is tri-fold: a nature conservancy centered around treehouses, a cultural events center that inspires and educates our community, and an environmental learning center that facilitates stewardship of natural resources. The resort has a main lodge with a library, dining facilities and a few rooms. Then surrounding it are five treehouses available for rent — Bonbibi, Trillium, Upper Pond, Nest and Temple of the Blue Moon.

All of the treehouses were built by Pete, who also runs the Nelson Treehouse and Supply [4], a design/build firm dedicated to treehouses. Nelson designs and builds custom treehouses, and he also consults and sells treehouse plans for people around the country. He also holds workshops on building treehouses and sells specialized pieces and parts to help build your own treehouse. In September of 2013, the resort will host the Global TreeHouse Symposium [6], and it regularly caters for various events and weddings. The Nelsons are committed to sustainability and operate their resort according to green principles.
