A small deck around a tree trunk... could make a pleasant retreat, would be easier to maintain than a bench or chairs which the lawn people always mess up... maybe with some planters/raised beds around it to soften the look? .....if we ever get a home with random huge trees in the backyard, this would be a good idea.

This is a beautiful exterior, would fit in nicely on Pender I think.
