Please Note: The Skykomish and the North Central Cascades are a historic area for the Great Northern Railroad, built between 1889-1903 by John Frank Stevens, whom Stevens Pass was named for. Trains still pass through the area to this day, creating occasional noise as they pass through the area. Most guests find this to be a charming aspect of the home and the area.

This cabin is nice and cozy! The view of the river and mountains are spectacular and we enjoyed the hot tub and outdoor fire pit. It’s pretty small and I think two people was perfect for this spot. Four would have been a little cramped. The bed was really comfy too! The improvements needed are cleanliness. There was litter and cigarette butts outside and around the fire pit area, the BBQ was too dirty to use and the ceiling fans were incredibly dusty. The indoor fireplace was disappointing as it’s not really a fireplace. It’s really just a light and doesn’t provide warmth. I was looking forward to cozying up next to a warm fire inside. Also more transparency about neighbors proximity is needed. I expected neighbors but I didn’t expect someone’s RV to be parked 15ft from the hot tub. It wasn’t as private as expected. Overall a nice weekend but a few unexpected surprises that made me question the value.
Manager response:
Hi, Brittany! Thank you for telling us about your stay. We are very sorry your for the inconveniences that made your stay less then ideal and have addressed the cleaner about dusting the ceiling fan, making sure the grill is checked and cleaned before each stay, as well as making sure the outside is picked up. We have never seen anyone in the vacant lot next door and will investigate the situation so we can address it as needed. We hope to see you again!

What a truly lovely view from this adorable cabin. The cabin is well maintained, stocked with plenty of dishes, pots and pans and even a bowl and towel for your pup should you bring him along. The hot tub is nicely situated so you can look at the view while you soak.

This is a well maintained cabin right on the river. It is great for 1 or 2 people. The loft has a very low ceiling, I don't think even a short person could sit up in the beds. Would not recommend planning for more than 2 people. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need, and the fridge is large. If you have mobility issues, bring a stool to help you get on and off the main bed, it is very high. The view of the river is fantastic, and if you open the door you can hear it! Wonderful place, I plan to come back.
