The Eagle's Nest was a FANTASTIC cabin to accommodate our two families with teens for a long ski weekend in late February. Once we arrived after a long flight from Chicago we did not want to leave. The home is beautifully appointed, the fireplace was lit, the bathrooms and bedrooms are luxurious. Even the teens loved climbing the wall to the loft bedroom and would stare out the windows at the view. Best of all, though was the view out back. The rushing Skykomish River instantly makes you feel relaxed and on a special vacation. We were 30 minutes away from Steven's Pass and had 2 awesome days of skiing. If you are skiing Stevens Pass, make sure you rent an AWD vehicle. When we were there WDOT was restricting passage on US 2 to cars with snow chains and AWD vehicles though we experienced some extraordinary snow. After a day of skiing, we'd hit the hot tub, listen to the river, watch the stars and wished for time to stand still. During the day you could literally just enjoy the backyard for hours. The mountain views are just beautiful. The property features lots of outdoor seating (it was cold, though in February), a beautiful fire-pit and an outdoor kitchen. We can only imagine how great it would be to be there in warmer weather. We saw bald eagles in flight and perched in the trees. If you go, stop in Gold Bar, 10 miles west of Index, for groceries BEFORE you get there. You would also like Ricco's "bake at home pizza place" just east of the grocery store. Like I said, once you get there you won't want to leave. Chris was an attentive owner and responded to our questions right away. The home was a perfect location for what we wanted to do. We could visit friends in Everett in 45 minutes and headed to Seattle for sight-seeing when we weren't skiing. A wonderful, memorable home and vacation.
