Treehouse Resort and Spa

A nature retreat centered on wellness, relaxation, and play

Story Behind Treehouse Resort & Spa

We are the Nelson family, comprised of me (Pete); my wife (of 30 years!), Judy; and our adult kids, Emily, Henry, and Charlie. We work together, along with our extraordinary staff, to bring the magic of treehouses to folks across the country.

In 2006, we opened our overnight retreat center in Fall City, TreeHouse Point, to celebrate the grandeur of the Pacific Northwest with visitors from around the world. With my designs, Judy's culinary prowess, and the vision of our marvelous staff, TreeHouse Point evolved into a world-renowned getaway for peace, romance, and rejuvenation.

Our family has long dreamed of building a more extensive resort than TreeHouse Point, but with the same exceptional service and unique boutique experience. With the incredible influx of visitors to TreeHouse Point, we felt the time was ripe to make our dream a reality. On our travels around the country for treehouse builds, Judy and I looked for the perfect venue. But we ultimately realized that there was no better place than our lush and lovely home: the Pacific Northwest. During a treehouse build in Woodinville, Washington, I drove by a property "for sale" sign and immediately knew it would be the ideal location for Treehouse Resort and Spa.

As I write this, we are working hard on the permitting process for the resort - but I can't wait to get started on the designs and construction of the treehouses here. We hope you enjoy learning more about our vision for Treehouse Resort and Spa - scroll down to see our plans for the property and read our FAQs.

And I can't wait to host you! Our supporters are so important to my family; you have made our dreams come to life. We couldn't imagine embarking on this next adventure without your support, and look forward to making you feel at home in our trees.

To the trees!

How does Treehouse Resort and Spa relate to Nelson Treehouse and Supply?

Pete and his family have long dreamed of building another treehouse resort with the same exceptional service and unique boutique experience as Treehouse Point, but with even more amenities. With the incredible influx of visitors to Treehouse Point, Pete felt the time was ripe to make his dream a reality. The Nelsons looked all over the country for the perfect venue, but ultimately realized that there was no better place than their beloved Pacific Northwest. During a treehouse build in Woodinville, Washington, Pete drove by a property "for sale" sign and immediately knew it would be the ideal location for Treehouse Resort and Spa.

Pete will design all the treehouses on the resort, and he and the Nelson Treehouse and Supply crew will lovingly construct each one. Finally, members of the brilliant staff at TreeHouse Point will be managing the development of the new resort in order to foster the same magical feeling they've so artfully created before.
