Woman gives tour of incredible “forest house” she lived in for 8 years before renting it out
I don't think I would be able to peel my eyes from the beautiful woodwork long enough to take a walk in the woods. This is some of the most beautiful craftsmanship I've ever seen.

Some people want to live in the city. They want to be surrounded by tall buildings, busy streets, and great food.

Other people would love to settle down on a quiet farm.

Others want a calming tree house.

When you say tree house, the first thing that you’ll think of is the little house up in the tree where kids would play and rest.

Jenna Kausal, the owner of the YouTube channel Tiny House Giant Journey, featured “The Forest House.”

Suzanne, the owner of the forest house, took Jenna on a tour of her breathtaking home.

Seizing the opportunity

When Suzanne saw the home, she knew she would not pass the chance. She bought it and had lived in it for eight years.

Then, one day, she realized she wanted to share the magical experience of living in this tree house, so she started renting it out.

Imagine waking up hearing the songs of the birds. You go outside and enjoy the fresh air and the warm sunlight welcoming you to another beautiful day.

You get your coffee and sit on your porch where you enjoy the vast beauty of the forest. Wouldn’t this be a dream come true?

Suzanne’s home is on the beautiful Orcas Island, in the San Juan Islands, just off the coast of Washington State.

You can get there by ferry in an hour and twenty minutes.

We tell you, it’s worth the travel.

According to Suzanne, the designer of this house gave it its heart and soul, and if you see this masterpiece, you will agree with her.

Each part of the house is stunning.

Suzanne loved the cathedral-shaped windows and how it has a circular shape, unlike the usual four-corner home that we’re so used to.

A 12-sided canvas

The living room has 12 sides, so that was a challenge to decorate.

She said she bought a curved couch and built a bookshelf because she has to have a sizable space for her books.

You’ll also notice the unique door handles and how the cathedral windows looked like a hobbit’s home.

Hidden behind the beautiful woodwork is the home’s bath, laundry, and toilet. Before entering their respective rooms, you’ll admire each door handle.

Oh, the tub room is gorgeous!

It has the original Japanese soaking deep tub with skylight. If you’re tired, just soak your tired body and relax.

Once you’re done and you feel hungry, visit the kitchen down the hall from the main room. It’s a curved wall kitchen with a copper sink and a cherry live edge alder.

Three times the beauty

The entire house has three structures connected with the deck.

Suzanne said she loves the rail tops because she always wanted them to be big. She would read and eat there, too.

Her bedroom is in the third structure. There are two bedrooms in this home, the main one is in a six-sided room with big windows on one side.

The other bedroom, which is the tower bedroom, was Suzanne’s bedroom for the years she spent living here.

She could see everything from her bedroom and even enjoy the stars. It’s the perfect bedroom, waking to a balcony that will make you love life every single day.

You can do so by the Vacation Rentals San Juan Islands website.

Though, the forest home does not allow children under 13. This is because of the deck railings of the home.
