Dixie's River Retreat is a unique and beautiful mountain oasis perfect for your next North Cascades vacation! Tucked along the Skykomish River, surrounded by trees and lush greenery, it's the ideal location to relax and unwind from your city stresses and cares. Step inside and be greeted by the gorgeous fir floors, high end finishes, and spacious light-filled layout. The kitchen is a work of art, from the large apron sink to the new granite countertops, and offers plenty of space to prepare family-style meals for your whole crew. Also on the main floor, you will find a spacious living room/dining room to seat everyone in comfort, with an enormous wall of windows to let the light pour in.

The living room offers a flatscreen TV, plenty of board games, and a huge movie collection with something to please everyone! There are two cozy bedrooms downstairs, one with a queen bed and the other with two twins. A fully refinished bathroom and laundry area are situated nearby as well. Upstairs, in the spacious open loft, the master bedroom resides along with a beautiful ensuite bath with a large walk-in shower for ultimate luxury and comfort. A full-size futon completes the master bedroom loft space and brings the total guest count to a maximum of 8. Note: this master bedroom space is not enclosed.

In addition to all the fantastic amenities, Dixie's River Retreat features immediate access to the Skykomish - with new custom-built steps leading right to the river - and breathtaking views of the mountainous surroundings. While Highway 2 is close to the property and there is occasional traffic noise (see our photos to view proximity to the Stevens Pass Highway), a fully fenced dog run in the yard allows pooches to play freely, and the view from the back of the home over the lush yard towards the river is as serene and peaceful as it gets. No neighbors are within view of the home, so you will enjoy the privacy as well as the beauty that this mountain cabin has to offer. Perfect proximity to all the nearby recreation - skiing, snowboarding or mountain biking at Stevens Pass, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing at the Nordic Center, river rafting and rock climbing in Index, and all the best hikes in the region - is another huge plus that your friends and family will love. The Baviarian village of Leavenworth is also just a little over an hour's drive away, which makes for a quick and easy day trip! All in all, this home has the luxury, comfort, and prime location you are looking for in your next mountain vacation.

Please Note: Dixie's River Retreat is located near Stevens Pass along the Skykomish River, which is an historic area for the Great Northern Railroad. Trains still pass near the cabin to this day (the railroad tracks are located just on the other side of Hwy 2) and this can create some noise, but our cabin owners and guests alike find it to be a charming aspect of the home and the area.

Riverfront Retreat!

Beautiful large & new river front property with a dog run that our dog really enjoyed! Close to our favorite hiking trails, Barclay, Eagle & Dorothy Lakes, as well as Stevens Pass. We really enjoy the large DVD collection, the board games and waking up to that view from the loft! We will be back! -Veronica

Expansive Yet Cozy

Wow! This home was gorgeous. We were expecting a cabin on the river (we rented prior to photos being posted) and what we found was a stunning chalet with the most amazing views. The home is perfectly appointed. Expansive yet cozy and comfortable. The DVD and game library was impressive. We even found some old favorites that made our move night really special. The kitchen has everything you could need and even came stocked with spices. The dog run is really more like an enclosed dog park. Our dog ran around like a maniac and was loving “his space”. The home, views and outlying property provide such a perfect retreat. We truly did not want to leave and plan to rent again this summer. - Linda, Will & Chip -Linda

Ideal location for our mountain adventure

We rented this cabin for our yearly spring trip up to Stevens Pass and are so happy we did. The dogs so loved the fenced dog run area and our kids loved exploring the river banks. My son is crazy for trains so he was thrilled every time he heard them go by, maybe twice a day. It couldn't have been more convenient for skiing and there seemed to be plenty of great hikes nearby as well which we will have to check out next time. Loved the Bigfoot themed espresso stand close by as well, forget what it was called but worth checking out. There were games to play, everyone had their own space and that view was just incredible. We will definitely be back! -Louisa C.

Best place to relax and disconnect

I chose Dixie's River Retreat for an annual guys getaway because we needed to find a place big enough for all of us and my dog Arnold and our snowboarding gear. It did NOT disappoint. In addition to the place being pristine upon arrival, there was plenty of space for all of us, and the bedrooms were even bigger than expected. The kitchen was great for cooking big group meals; it was well stocked, well designed and the appliances seemed practically brand new. If you're looking for a place with great views of the Skykomish and surrounding mountains, that's close to Steven's Pass AND is also dog friendly, then this is it! -Adam S.
