In northwestern Washington state, poking out of the Salish Sea near Vancouver Island and British Columbia in Canada, lies an archipelago called the San Juan Islands that’s considered to hold some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Pacific Northwest. The second-largest island, Orcas Island, plays host to the tallest peak in the archipelago, Mount Constitution, and has become a must-visit destination for outdoor lovers on the West Coast and beyond.
If you, too, love the outdoors and are planning on visiting Orcas Island to explore its woodsy forests, scenic hills, hidden coves, and rugged coastline, where better to spend the night than a treehouse Airbnb that’s equally as rustic and beautiful as the island itself.
We hope you love this Orcas Island treehouse Airbnb! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay. Listed prices are accurate as of the time of publication.

Listed as the Orcas Island, Forest House #283, this stunning one-bedroom treehouse Airbnb is a bit of a local celebrity, having been featured on both the King 5 Seattle Evening News and season 11 of the Animal Planet TV show Treehouse Masters.
For a rustic accommodation, this Orcas Island treehouse Airbnb is flush with amenities, including a fully equipped kitchen with a four-burner gas stove and oven, a washer and dryer, an indoor fireplace, a deep soaking tub, a smart TV with various streaming services, and a gorgeous deck where you can revel in the forest views that surround you. The bedroom has a comfortable queen mattress alongside skylights that allow guests to gaze at the stars.
Two things to keep in mind: Children under 13 are not allowed at the Orcas Island, Forest House #283 due to the deck railings, and because of the treehouse’s location, internet speeds and connection can be spotty. But that just leaves time for forest bathing. Outside the treehouse, exploration beckons, from hiking and sailing to kayaking and fishing. If that’s not your thing, you can also head down to Eastsound where there are plenty of restaurants and shops.
Price per night: $245
