Black Bear Bungalow Treehouse Masters Treehouse
In 2014 we were excited to announce the addition of a new ‘Treehouse Masters’ treehouse to the Historic Summit Inn Resort property. The Treehouse Bungalow was designed and built by world renowned treehouse architect Pete Nelson and his team. The house in the trees features a forty-five foot bridge which leads to the front door of a cozy interior with a wrap around deck. The episode of Treehouse Masters featuring the Historic Summit Inn aired early in January, 2014.
The Black Bear Bungalow Treehouse remains a popular attraction for our hotel guests with daily tours offered Monday through Friday at 5:00pm and Saturday and Sunday at 11:00am. Treehouse rental opportunities are available for small gatherings or like our page on Facebook for more information on winning a treehouse rental!
