Bryan and I spent the past weekend at TreeHouse Point B&B in Issaquah, WA. This was a belated 5th wedding anniversary trip (the traditional 5th wedding anniversary gift is wood so a treehouse is very appropriate). The B&B is only about 45 minutes away from our home. We didn’t realize until we arrived but there is a TV show on Animal Planet about the owner and operator of the TreeHouse Point B&B. I am surprised I was actually able to book a room for Friday and Saturday night.
I always wanted a treehouse as a little girl so I was pretty excited to stay here. We stayed for two nights in the Upper Pond treehouse. The room was cute and cozy. The bunks on the top made great places to read and nap. The room even had a compostable toilet so we didn’t have to climb down the ladder at night to use the bathroom. I was a little concerned about having to use a separate bath house but the bath house exceeded my expectations. Each bath house contained a toilet, sink and glass shower with the ability to adjust the room’s temperature.
Since Upper Pond treehouse is accessed via ladder, there is a pulley available to hoist up and down baggage.
There are not many activities (especially in winter) or restaurants around the B&B. We ate a unique and delicious dinner at Falls City Bistro. We spent time hanging out in the treehouse reading. Snoqualmie Falls is a short drive away. The accumulated ice and snow around the Falls was interesting to see.
We woke up on our last morning to a light dusting of snow on the ground around our treehouse.
Even though we were so close to home, it definitely felt like we were farther away. We came back home refreshed and relaxed after our stay at TreeHouse Point B&B. I just wish I could return sooner; the B&B’s reservation calendar is booked solid for months and months.
