Dr. David Bisbee

Dr. David Bisbee, who’s now in private practice in Stowe, says building the treehouse was the result of a lifetime’s worth of passion for construction and design. 

Run into David Bisbee around town and talk to him for more than a minute or two, and the affable family doctor might just ask you to come by his home to check out his treehouse.

Bisbee is proud of the whimsical, quirky treehouse, which he built for his four grandchildren.


The treehouse is constructed using special treehouse attachment bolts, and is perched on three hemlock trees, one spruce tree and two posts made from hemlock trees. It’s not square, but it is level.

Bird houses

The treehouse features intricate details, such as a wizard carved in relief on the front door his granddaughter named “Blark” and a handcrafted bunk bed on the upper level.

Treasures and toys

The interior of the treehouse is packed with treasures and toys David Bisbee has collected for his four grandchildren over the years, including a small collection of children’s books, a handmade toy box and fairy lights.
