Mount Baker Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

MT. BAKER'S #1 RATED CABIN! Read our reviews and feel confident you're booking a cabin that will WOW you! Check our calendar for great dates still available.

Experience the best of both worlds. Luxury Whistler-inspired accommodations set in the midst of stunning wilderness. This one-of-a-kind 3-bedroom, 2 bathroom cabin is the ultimate in comfort. No detail has been overlooked.

Dates are already filling up fast ... don't miss out on an amazing vacation for you, your friends and family. And be sure to check out our fantastic midweek rates, an incredible value for you if you can sneak away during the week!

PLEASE NOTE: Pets are NOT allowed at The Shuksan.

Inside ... Soft, leather recliners gathered around an inviting wood-burning hearthstone fireplace. Gorgeous gourmet kitchen equipped with everything you'll need to cook amazing meals. Bedrooms with cozy duvets and luxury linens. Beautifully appointed bathrooms. Large 42 inch HD LED TV with lots of great movies, games, puzzles and a pool table. Warm hardwood floors, high end finishes and more!

Step outside to a large covered patio, complete with dining table, Weber BBQ and deluxe jetted spa. Walk a few steps further, and enjoy an outdoor firepit to roast marshmallows, swap stories and sing songs under starry skies. All in the safety of Snowline, Mt. Baker's most sought after community.

Things to do: The Shuskan is nestled in the safe and private gated community of Snowline, which offers something for the whole family to enjoy: basketball, swimming, tennis, spectacular hiking trails and views, and much more. Snowline is located just 25 minutes from the Mt Baker Ski Area and is the closest lodging to the lifts available. Ideal for any time of the year.

The Mount Baker and North Fork Nooksack River area is unsurpassed in its scenic beauty and outdoor recreation opportunities. Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan (said to be the most photographed mountain in the world!) lie at the headwaters of the Nooksack River watershed in northwest Washington State.

SPRING & SUMMER: Springtime is the time to enjoy:

- Backcountry treks on snowshoes and touring skis;

- Spring skiing and snowboarding in warm sunshine;

- Foraging for mushrooms,fiddlehead ferns, wild strawberries, thimbleberries, and salmonberries;

- Searching the shady forest for delicate flowering plants such as trilliums and bleeding hearts;

- Canoeing and fishing at Silver Lake when the season opens in April.

By mid-summer, the Heather Meadows Recreation Area is clear of snow and the road opens to Artist’s Point and the Austin Pass picnic area, offering spectacular views of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, and surrounding peaks. Moonrises at dusk, the luminous heavens, and August meteor showers create magnificent evenings and unforgettable experiences.

With over 100 miles of maintained trails and many Forest Service roads in the region, there are diverse backpacking, fly fishing, horseback riding, mountain biking, climbing, hiking, and sightseeing opportunities for all ages and levels.

FALL & WINTER: By the second week of September the high country is aglow with the golds of mountain ash and the fiery reds and oranges from the leaves of blueberries and huckleberries. Summer activities carry over into fall and are joined by hunting and berry picking; a trip to the meadows at this time of year will provide sweet berries to nibble on during a trek or to take home for making pancakes, jams and pies. By late September and into October, the big leaf maples and cottonwoods in the lower North Fork valley are at their peak in color, making this an ideal time to enjoy a fall drive. Sometime in late October or early November, snow begins accumulating again in the higher elevations and a serene silence descends on the mountains.

By late November, winter has arrived. In addition to visiting the ski area, there are other wintertime activities to consider. These include snowshoeing and ski touring; snowmobiling; hikes along the river and its tributaries; eagle-watching; steelheading and more.

Our two families took the plunge and bought the Shuksan as a way to enjoy more time together away from the stresses of life back in Vancouver. When we all get together at the cabin, we always have a great time!

Murray & Susan purchased this cabin in 2011

Tobey & Kelly Vos, the previous owners, did such an incredible job building and decorating the Shuksan. The moment we walked in we knew it was the one for us. The combination of luxurious indoor living and amazing property is unmatched in the area. It's an amazing place to retreat from everyday life.

The Shuksan is finished as nice as many high end Whistler properties, but still retains that cozy cabin feel. There's nothing like sitting down in front of a roaring fire with a nice glass of wine, book in hand.

Then, head outside and all you can hear is the distant sound of the Nooksack River, and the occasional bird chirping in a nearby tree. Sit on the covered patio out back, relax in the hot tub, or head out back to the campfire area and hammock.

You deserve to pamper yourself in affordable luxury.

We had a fantastic time “off the grid”

Thanks Susan and Murray for the last minute getaway over Spring Break. You have an amazing place here. We had a fantastic time “off the grid”. Movies and games one day, skiing in powder the next. We always say travel and memories are more important than anything right now, and being able to do that close to home is even better. Cheers.

Notes:
PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED. A note about NO CELLULAR, INTERNET & TV CONNECTIVITY at The Shuksan (PLEASE READ!): Due to the remoteness of Glacier, Washington, there is no cell phone reception in Glacier nor at the Shuksan. The closest cellular reception in 10 miles west in Maple Falls or up at Mount Baker. There is no internet at the Shuksan. There is WiFi available year round at the Snowline Community Center. This rustic room is typically not heated in the winter months. Some of the restaurants in the area have WiFi, including Chair 9 across the street from the entrance to Snowline (WiFi password is their phone number). The Shuksan does not have cable or satellite tv. We have a large selection of DVDs available for your viewing pleasure. A note for GUESTS WITH MOBILITY ISSUES: The driveway leading to the Shuksan is steep.
