We recently had the pleasure of staying at "The Nest," a treehouse in Woodinville, WA built by the now famous Pete Nelson. If you aren't familiar with Pete Nelson or his epic portfolio of beautiful treehouses all over the world, check his work out here. Now that you've seen his work you can understand, this wasn't just any old treehouse. It was a beautiful cabin nestled in the trees and it is the perfect place for a quiet getaway!
The treehouse is located on the beautiful Cottage Lake and offers wonderful views from its perch. The treehouse even has a small outdoor deck situated in the limbs to sit and enjoy the kayakers on the lake, birds in the trees, and quiet sounds of nature. It sleeps two and the owners, John and Beth, provide you with a wonderful breakfast in the morning and tips for places to eat and things to do in the surrounding area. You also have access to their private dock and kayaks which makes for a fun lake outing on a nice day. Oh, and once the sun sets you can enjoy their fire pit for making s'mores (s'mores ingredients not included) and their wonderful hot tub with great views of the lake and stars.
Insider tip: There are plenty of eagles that live near Cottage Lake so be sure to ask John and Beth if they've seen any lately! We were positioned right next to a huge nest. A-freakin-mazing.
Have we sold you on it yet? (No, we aren't being paid for this post, the place is just unbiasedly perfect.)
Even before our treehouse stay Woodinville was one of our favorite places to escape to for the weekend because...well...wine, duh! Woodinville is home to over 100 wineries and it's only 30 minutes away from Seattle. It's close enough to take a Lyft, but far enough away to let that small-town feeling really soak in. You can hop from winery to winery tasting the amazing variety of wines that Washington has to offer and then once you are happy and drunk, go find a delicious dinner at places like Hollywood Tavern, Vivi Pizzeria, or Italianissimo.
Check out this beginners guide to wine tasting in Woodinville to help you navigate the many wineries. Woodinville also has a great website with a map of all the wineries here. A few of our favorites are JM Cellars, Robert Ramsey, and Warr King Wines.
But let's not forget the point of this whole post, you can stay in a treehouse when you visit. Which means you can stay in a treehouse AND visit 100+ wineries. We will just leave the link to book your weekend getaway right here. You're welcome.
