About this listing
We invite you to experience a relaxing and rejuvenating 'Retreat' or Get-A-Way in our Tree Home Suite on Whidbey Island WA...just 1 hour north of Seattle. Our nurturing gift to you is providing delicious and nutritious continental breakfasts every morning you are here. You'll surely transend the bustle of busy life and be transformed as you immerse yourselves in this incredibly peaceful and healing environment. Enjoy 'full-circle' views of rich woods in our 250 Sq ft Octagon Tree Home with a gorgeous cedar tree going straight up through the center of the living space! A solid stairway travels 13 ft above the ground, leading to the 10' x 12' covered deck and your doorway to heavenly rest and retreat!
Surround windows and skylights in the roof peak allow you to feel what it's like to be completely immersed in a beautiful, serene, healing forest of cedar, fir, hemlock, maple, alders, varieties of fern...and oh...enjoy watching and listening to our 'resident' deer, owls, ravens, eagles and many other birds. Look up through the skylight roof peak to behold a seemingly unending kaleidoscope view of tree limbs circling their trunks as they reach high in the sky.
Be sure to see all the photos posted above including views of the beach, water and stunning sunsets over the Olympic Mountains.....easily accessible, less than 1/2 mile away.
This gem is best suitable for adults, but we do allow children 12 and older too. Three adults can manage better than 4 because the hide-a-bed is a 'half-way-between-twin-and-double' size. However it has slats and an excellent quality foam mattress so it does not have the typical hide-a-bed 'bars' to contend with, nor does it sink in the middle. We provide single-sized, thick and dense foam pads and linens when needed for extra people. Please feel free to ask us how we can best meet your unique needs.
Accommodations in the one Tree House include: Queen Bed, "Sort of" Double Hide-a-bed Sofa (see paragraph above), Desk, Dining Table, Free Wi-Fi, TV moniter for viewing DVD's/VHS. A thermostatically controlled radiator heater AND electric 'Fireplace' add warmth and ambiance. We provide a fridge (with freezer), microwave, dishes and silverware for prep and eating simple meals, warmed up left-overs, etc. We just don't allow 'cooking', using hot plates or fry pans, etc....
The fire pit may be used to enjoy a campfire and grill or roast hamburgers, hotdogs and marshmallows. Substantial cooking here with your own cooking equipment is not encouraged, because that would require more extensive 'clean-up' than just a few dishes and utensils Our drain field is small and we want to keep the flow of gray water into it 'frugal' and biodegradable as much as possible.
We provide a tasty continental breakfast to enjoy at your leisure.
Your own private (and VERY cute) Shower House just a few footsteps away provides a shower, sink and state-of-the-art, no-odor composting toilet. We do have a porta-potty (marine type) on the deck of the Tree House for the middle-of-the-night needs so you don't have to trudge down in the dark to the composting toilet in the Shower House.
Please read the house rules before you reserve to see if this type of accommodation is right for you.
Please park in the designated area next to the short path to the Tree House. Easy slip-on type shoes would be great to equip yourself with as this is a 'no shoes abode'. This helps keep the off-white colored carpeting and sofa clean.
No smoking. No pets.
Please turn lights and electric fireplace off when leaving the premises for any length of time. The Tree House heats up very fast, but is difficult to retain the heat due to the many windows, skylights and over-all amount of surface area exposed to the outside air.
We have very quiet and peaceful surroundings. We have quiet neighbors in adjacent properties, and since any sound travels very easily, we have "quiet hours" between 9:00 PM and 8 AM. Thank you very much for respecting this.
The facilities in the shower house are very accommodating, however, the smaller sized water heater and small 'ish' drain field requires conscious and frugal mindfulness.
And again, we provide a fridge, microwave, dishes and silverware for prep and eating simple meals, warmed up left-overs, etc. We just don't allow 'cooking', using hot plates or fry pans, etc....
We thank you so much for your respect and consideration. Abiding by these 'house rules' allows us to keep our rates low and affordable for more people and families with kids to enjoy a memorable Tree House Adventure!
Can't wait to go back to this adventure. Even though it was 90 degrees outside this treehouse was still cool in the shade. The hosts are very friendly and our kids couldn't have been more entertained. Can't wait to go back. Also this island is breathtaking. We played on the beach, hiked deception pass and had great food in Langley.
We loved the quiet wooded area with deer roaming daily. Baby humming birds recently left parents as evidenced by the empty nest. The tree house setting is romantic, clean and perfect. We had a great time/
Really enjoyed the treehouse! Just wished we'd had more time to enjoy pickle ball, fires, the teepee.
Lynn and Ken have a beautiful tree house! Within 10 minutes of our arrival, we saw a fawn and her baby grazing in the woods under our balcony. Ken and Lynn were very kind and accommodating. They gave us recommendations for hikes and good beaches to watch the sunset. We would absolutely love to stay at this perfect little oasis again.
Ken and Lynn greeted us upon arrival and were very gracious and helpful. They had great recommendations on restaurants in the area and other sights and highlights. Ken supplied the wood for us for both nights of campfire wood and started our fire also. Lynn stocked the fridge daily with a breakfast that was quite a treat. They could not have made us feel more welcome.
Lynn & Ken were such warm and welcoming hosts! The treehouse is idyllic and serene, and we only wish we could have stayed there for longer! The little breakfast Lynn provides is so thoughtful (and delicious). They also had great tips for places to go nearby.
Lyn and Ken are a great couple who have created a sweet and cozy treetop retreat. They were kind and accommodating. The treehouse and shower facilities were very clean and comfortable. We had a fun and relaxing time and would definitely recommend it!

About the Host, Lynn And Ken
Hi, Ken and I currently live on Whidbey Island, WA...Ken's been here all his life...obviously knows a lot about the area. I was raised in Southern CA and lived in Wisconsin 28 years prior to Whidbey. I love the magic of this Island, 11 years now for me.
Health and Wellness has been my passion and purpose for many, many years. I've had much experience as an RN, Nutritionist, Massage Therapist, Health Educator and Coach, etc.
It brings me much joy to provide a beautiful, peaceful and comfortable space amongst the calming trees for others to rest, relax, restore and experience rejuvenation and overall wellness too.
