We stayed for one night and thought the treehouse itself was great--beautfiul wood and furnishings, great setting in the woods above the river--but the lack of communication from the manager really detracted from the stay. We made our reservation but were not given any information about how to find the place, when or how to check in, or where exactly we were staying or what the accomodations were like. When we inquired in the days before our stay, we didn't get any email response but eventually got a return call after we left a telephone message and were told to just call again when we arrived. We called when we arrived and learned where we were staying but didn't see anyone around for quite a while, so put the spot heater on in the treehouse and went to dinner. (We had a great dinner at the Fall City Roadhouse just down the road in Fall City --delicious food, beautiful old place, great waitstaff.) Perhaps our fault for not asking for lots of details, but we didn't know that the bathroom was quite a distance from the treehouse (and very cold and smelled like a sewer). Truly, while the treehouse was cold but neat, the experience felt a lot like camping out, which wasn't what we were expecting. We could have adjusted our attitudes a lot easier if enough information had been provided beforehand and we knew this was what to expect (though maybe we would have passed on the experience because at $200+ per night, it's pretty expensive camping, especially for a couple who don't really enjoy camping). All in all, it is a really cool idea, it was a neat treehouse, but it certainly wasn't the "bed and breakfast in a cool setting" concept that we thought it looked like from the website (www.treehousepoint.com) and from a local news spotlight. Win some, lose some.
