Floating high in the branches of the magical Redwood forests of Bonny Doon the Pinecone Treehouse will immerse you in 360 degree views of the forest's upper canopy. Allow the healing power of this forest environment and this awe inspiring structure to sing you into complete relaxation, imagination and reflection.

The space
The Pinecone Treehouse is a space created to tap into your higher self, a space to rediscover your inner calm. Cradled by those living giants the California Redwoods, one is invited to live in the vision of their dreams, to quiet the mind until they can hear their inner truths, to reestablish a connection with nature and  self.  Our greatest hope is for guests of the Pinecone Treehouse to leave refreshed, inspired, reconnected, and recommitted to themselves, their dreams, and to this beautiful home that we call Mother Earth. 

This treehouse experience is an Adventure! and an experience you will sure be sharing with all of your friends however it is not for the faint of heart.

The treehouse sits 35' above ground on the uphill side and almost 60' from the ground on the downhill side. With two triangle shaped see through floor panels this treehouse makes one feel as though they are flying through the upper Redwood canopy. Entry and exit from the treehouse requires a bit of effort to ascend and descend the steep alternating step entry ladder as well as to pass through the trap door.

**Note: Our bathroom is woodsy! We do have running water for the sink and shower, however, we do not have a plumbed toilet - we have a compostable one! It is quite simple to use, and there are instructions on how to do so posted in the bathroom. Bonus is that you get a beautiful view of the forest from where you sit :)
