Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything that they said about this place is true, and much much more. The views are stunning from nearly every vantage. We had our wedding photography done there, and we could not have asked for a better day. The sneak peek photos are simply beautiful. We spent six nights there. Don & Kathy are very nice. They we're very accommodating to us, yet they were always respectful of our privacy as well. We are absolutely going to book another vacation there in the near future. We believe this place would be amazing even in winter weather conditions. The apartment has heated floors and a cozy fireplace to keep you warm while still being able to enjoy the views from the front room. The steam shower is also a great way to get the chill off after a chilly walk on the beach. We felt right at home there, and we even got a tad emotional upon departure. Thank you Don & Kathy for sharing your magical home with us.

Amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

I absolutely adored the treehouse! Set back off the road, the place is quite and serene. The views cannot be beat! Place was clean and very well though out. Don was there to greet us upon arrival, and made us feel very welcome! I will definitely be back!

Cozy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The Treehouse was very cozy and comfortable with outstanding ocean views. The place was well appointed and clean with a comfortable bed.

It is a bit remote if you are planning on eating in restaurants.

Thanks Don

Very nice property

  • 4 of 5

The Treehouse was well maintained and provided the amenities as advertised. There was even a cute little gas fireplace to drive out the chill on the damp evenings.

Be sure to read the instructions on how to find the place. It is not the easiest to locate but the owner was nice enough to stand at the road and wave us in.

The attractions in the local area are mainly that the place is rural and access to the beach, ferry and the islands is convenient. If you want to walk to a Starbucks or a top restaurant this is not the place for you. But if you want a quiet, secluded getaway in a house with the modern conveniences then the Treehouse will do just nicely.

Beautiful property and the most amazing sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two 65-lb dogs for one month in summer of 2015. We all loved it. The treehouse and grounds are well-designed, the vegetable and flower gardens gorgeous, the beach and bay peaceful, and the sunsets totally incomparable--we ended almost every day with, "Oh my, another amazing sunset." And Don cannot be surpassed as a gracious, laid-back host. He allowed our dogs free roam (but under supervision because the main road isn't far away), encouraged us to eat anything from his artistic and abundant garden (it was a bounty we enjoyed almost every day!!), and provided information and help whenever we needed it. The house is well-stocked and has good storage for long-term stays. For potential renters looking for privacy, be aware you share the same property and yard with the main house, and the two neighbors on each side are close but seem to be weekend homes. Although the main house is in front of the treehouse facing the bay, our view was not compromised, and the two sets of renters were very friendly and tolerant of us and our dogs; we tried to time our garden / beach visits during times they were away so as to give them privacy as well. We enjoyed wine and books at the picnic table overlooking the garden and bay. And oh, the raspberries!!! Although the main, busy road isn't far away, the treehouse is set down the driveway through a little forest that helps mask the noise. For dog owners, know the yard is fenced toward neighbors but open to bay or main road. Our only con was the July 4 fireworks that neighbors shot off at all hours for several days. Bellingham is a short ten-minute drive with a fabulous farmers market and many dog-friendly hikes; and day trips abound in any direction (Seattle, Vancouver, San Juans, Cascades, etc.). And the local fish is superb. We would highly recommend Don's treehouse and miss it--almost one year later!!

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I stayed and absolutely loved it. The views are amazing and beach was so much fun, we looked for crabs and starfish. It was nice nobody else was on the beach. They did a great job with the tree house, it was very comfortable. Loved sitting on the deck having dinner. Unfortunately we had to leave early because of a family emergency but had a great time while we were there. Maybe we can go back soon to finish our stay!

My husband and I stayed here for a few days. It was wonderful! Waking up to the views of the bay were amazing. We hope to venture back to the little treehouse in the summer.
