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. We provide earplugs as a courtesy for any sensitive guests. A damage waiver, covering up to $2,000 of accidental damage to the property or its contents, is included in the cost of your reservation.
