Nestled amidst large cedars and a giant maple tree, the Owl’s Perch Treehouse is a sight to behold. The striking contrast between the rich hue of the treehouse’s finished wood and the surrounding forest is breathtaking, creating a perfect harmony with nature. Perched almost 9 meters off the ground, this unique retreat is not for the faint-hearted.
Reaching the treehouse requires a climb of 50 steps, and even the loft bedroom is only accessible via a ladder. However, for those seeking an unforgettable experience, the effort is well worth it. Guests are welcomed by a parade of windows as they ascend the last few steps to the entrance. The front door features a large glass pane, flanked by a full-length window, with an additional expansive window above. In fact, the entire house is designed to provide unobstructed views of the stunning surrounding forest, immersing guests in the natural beauty of the canopy. The interior even boasts framed photographs of the majestic trees, further blurring the line between indoors and outdoors.
From the treehouse’s inviting front porch, guests can gaze out across the Salish Sea to the majestic mountains of Olympic National Park. Those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of modern life will find solace in this tranquil haven. Despite the feeling of seclusion, the Owl’s Perch Treehouse is only a few minutes away from the city center of Sooke. Several beaches are within a short drive, and numerous hiking trails in the forest beckon to nature enthusiasts. There are other residences nearby, but the privacy offered by the treehouse makes them almost imperceptible.
The Owl’s Perch Treehouse is an ideal destination for anyone seeking to reconnect with nature and experience the splendor of the Canadian wilderness. With rates starting at €250 per night, this enchanting retreat can be booked through Airbnb.
