The Miller Tree Inn has been designated the “Cullen House” of Forks, Washington. Though the film’s representation of the vampire home is a modern treehouse found in Portland, our inn closely matches Stephenie Meyer‘s description of the Cullen family home right here in the town where the story is set. The Cullens travel from Washington frequently, so chances of seeing them are slim—but not zero—however, the innkeepers speak “Twilight” fluently and are under strict orders to take special care Carlisle & Esme’s overnight guests. A complete Forks Twilight experience must include some imagination and a stay at the Cullen House, especially since it’s located directly down the street from the Forever Twilight in Forks Collection, the world’s only Twilight museum.
The Miller Tree Inn is also home to many of the town’s Twilight events. Attending Forks’ Forever Twilight in Forks Festival is the only time The Cullens’ make their home available for tours and take the liberty of welcoming you themselves. Miller Tree Inn is also the cofounder of Forks’ FTF Equinox, a book oriented Twilight experience.
