There’s really nothing wrong with living in the big city where the fast-paced lifestyle means living the good life.

Nor is there anything wrong with living in a more rural area where one is surrounded by nature and a lot of quiet.

But there are those who make a home their very own.

How about a charming tree house?

Jenna Kausal is the owner and host of the YouTube channel Tiny House Giant Journey.

“The Forest House” was designed and built by PNW famous designer, SunRay Kelley.

Suzanne is the owner of the forest house, and she took Jenna on a tour with a breathtaking video of the place for everyone to see.

And it really was too good to be true.

Suzanne saw the place and immediately jumped at the opportunity to purchase it. She’s lived in this magical place for about eight years now and really, why not?

It’s such a stunning place, it would be a shame not to share it with others so she began renting it out.

So just think of spending a few days at her place. It’s like something out of a Disney movie with singing birds and mother nature seemingly serenading you everyday.

It’s just sunlight, the warm gentle breeze of the forest and a nice cup of coffee every morning.

You can find this stunning place on the beautiful Orcas Island, in the San Juan Islands. That’s just off the coast of Washington State.

The way to get there is by ferry, which will take an hour and twenty minutes thereabouts.

And yes, it’s well worth the travel, especially for social media aficionados.

Suzanne finds herself constantly busy now, marking dates on the calendar and welcoming guests so often.

That ferry ride, though!

The designer gave the forest house its heart and soul with the cathedral-shaped windows and circular shape immediately catching one’s eye.

Certainly not something you’ll see in those big cities.

There are 12 sides to the living room, with a curved couch and a bookshelf for all her books. And those unique door handles make it seem like a setting from a good book.

The bath, laundry, and toilet are cleverly worked into the place. You wouldn’t suspect they were behind the wall!

Stunning woodwork with all the little details makes it seem like Rivendell, that hidden place in The Lord Of The Rings.

That deep soaking tub comes with natural lighting, too, so get in and forget about the world for a while. Just don’t forget your favorite bottle.

The kitchen is down the hall from the main room. A curved wall meant everything had to be perfectly aligned, like the copper sink and the countertops.

A beautiful deck comes with bigger rail tops so you can eat or enjoy your drink out there.

Suzanne’s bedroom is in the third structure. It’s the tower bedroom that gives her an amazing view of her place.

The place has two bedrooms, with the main one found in a six-sided room with massive windows on one side.
