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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
What a wonderful retreat we had! WWU Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, then 8 family for dinner and celebration. Wonderful cozy sleeping accommodations, well appointed kitchen, hot tub fun, a great music selection. Two more days, just the four of us. Two hikes along the Nooksack trail – first without a map – don’t recommend! Got lost in a circle but followed the river back home. Second hike to Church Mtn – view socked in due to weather but lovely. Fun movie selection and game time. Loved the cozy beds, lovely décor. Fires in the fireplace! Too wet for the outdoor firepit, but just enough sun breaks to sit and listen to the birds. Thank you for all the thoughtful touches. We WILL be back.

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.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
This was a trip for our daughter's college graduation. We had a full house the first night and just four of us for the rest of the stay. The cabin handled everyone beautifully. The directions were great, the house was even better than described. Beautifully furnished, cozy comfy beds, great decor. Kitchen was very well appointed- there wasn't anything we were in need of when making meals for many. We weren't sure about being "unplugged" for the length of our stay prior to our arrival, but it turned out to be so nice... my husband and daughter actually relaxed and we enjoyed family movies and games. Hiked the Nooksack trail and took a trip to Mt. Baker and various stops along the way. We didn't even need good weather...we will definitely be coming back to Shuksan in future! Thank you for providing such an amazing family get away!

CLEAN WELL FURNISHED FEELS LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our party was pleasantly surprised to see the condition of the home and all the amenities to be in order. All appliances were accessible and in working condition, including the hot tub was clean! The movie and game selection was vast. The home has beautiful furnishings and a livable space with an open floor plan. Great proximity to ski area and we hope to return in the summer to enjoy more outdoor activities. 5 stars!

FUN, BEAUTIFUL AND COMFY PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Shuksan Cabin was a truly special experience. The owners have thought of everything to make their guests stay as delightful as possible. The setting of the fire pit and spacious hot tub were only icing on the cake of this spectacular and beautifully appointed home. The gang said on the last day of our stay..."We don't want to leave this house!!" Additionally we skied at Mt. Baker, went backcountry skiing, were able to kayak within a short walk back to the house from up river (we had professional kayakers with us) and also went mountain biking where the trails are the best in the area. Location is recreation heaven! Thank you for your most generous hospitality kind owners, your attention to detail was so noticed and appreciated, we had a magical stay!!
