Perfect ski cabin

This was the perfect ski cabin for our group - would be great in summer as well as it is on the river in a beautiful spot. We recommend to all! -K

Exactly what we were looking for

The cabin was exactly what we were looking for in a weekend getaway. Great peaceful view of the river, trees and mountains. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware, bedrooms spacious, bathrooms clean with plenty of hot water and towels. I would recommend this cabin and stay again. Close to hikes, Wallace Falls in Gold Bar was a great day hike even in winter, close to Stevens Pass for skiing. Monroe is the closest town for a large grocery store so stop for any supplies you might need. Limited cell service but internet was fine. -Ameena

Amazing stay

We had an amazing stay here. Great set up. Can only imagine how beautiful it would be in the winter too. Index is a super cute little town. -Toby

This was the best part of our Seattle WA vacation!

There were three of us. We spent a lot of time at the dining room table just soaking up the view. It was breathtaking! We were so pleased at every aspect of this cabin. It was charming. We hated to leave. We got the quietness away from people that we needed. I would highly recommend this home to my friends. If you are expecting a "modern, high class" building, this is not the place for you. But, for those of you expecting "cozy", this is what you will love. -Debbie C.

Great get away

Really enjoyed the house and the location on the river with mountains all around. Close to Seattle but seems many miles away while there. -Travis G.
