Summit Inn Treehouse

New Treehouse Masters Treehouse at the Summit Inn

We are 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 will air early in January of 2014. This new addition to the property will be open for tours in the Spring of 2014. Call 724-438-8594 for details!

    I grew up in Farmington, Pa. I’ve lived in Oregon the last 40 years so it was so fun to be watching Treehouse Masters on tv and see Farmington, PA featured. I’ll be visiting this year so hope to see this in person.

    It’s so cool… I’m watching with my mom the Treehouse right now (1/18) and I was so impressed by the surrounding views that I went to the Summit Inn’s website. I will definitely visit for 2-3 days on my next vacation.

    I watch every episode of Treehouse Masters and when I saw they built one so close to where I live(Apollo, PA), I just have to come and see it. The Inn looks wonderful and if Kristie’s personality rubs off on the rest of the staff, it will be a great visit. Do you by chance have a singles weekend? I’ll be in touch to schedule my visit.

    I watched this episode of Treehouse Masters and can’t wait to visit it. The Summit is near where I grew up and we had family reunions there. My grandson, who is 9, is very into Treehouse Masters and asked for and got Pete Nelson’s books for Christmas. I told him about this episode and that the Summit is close to where we live. He is excited to visit Grandma so we can go visit the Summit and the new treehouse. What a great addition to a beautiful and historic place.

    I saw the Pete Nelson and his crew build your treehouse on their tv show. I loved it. I spent many hours in a treehouse with my twin sister and brother as young children. I hope to treat my twin sister to a week at your resort. I am not going to tell her about the treehouse. It will be a surprise. Hope to be able to share a glass of wine with her in the treehouse on our visit. Thank you. Marilyn Rollin from Big Sky Country – Montana

    I just saw the episode of your really nice tree house. I love the show and watch it all the time. Your family seemed like a very happy and caring group of people. What a beautiful opportunity to place this on your property. I think your daughters will carry on the property in the future and create an updated beautiful complex as a whole. Hope to visit someday. Pete is a really down to earth, funny guy and I love his show and his crew are very dedicated to what they do.
    Thank You for letting the public view your great treehouse. I would love to stay in a tree house someday.
    Best wishes, Linda

    I love the Treehouse Masters show! I grew up in Fayette County and one of my class reunions(Laurel Highlands) and my senior prom was held at your Inn. I was so excited to see your place on the show. This area is so beautiful and the treehouse turned out awesome!!!! I don’t get back home very often so seeing the Inn on TV brought back some wonderful memories.

    Had dinner at The Summit Inn in Nov 2012 while staying at a nearby resort with a group of RAMs. Saw the Treehouse program which documented the building of the addition to The Summit property. Would love to return to have dinner taking in the lovely view from the treehouse.

    (from CA) I just watched the Treehouse Masters. What fun! Is the tree house visible from Google Satellite? I’m guessing it’s new enough may be some years before it becomes visible with new satellite photos. Send us it’s coordinates so we can keep watch, and let us know when we can zoom in for a view when it shows up in Google Satellite! Hey, hey!

      Congratulations on the upcoming wedding! We truly appreciate you continued business and we would love to take you and your family on a tour when you arrive! Unfortunately, The treehouse was not built for overnight accommodations as there is no electric or plumbing.
