Our mountain house, The Cedarstone Riverhouse, is located only an hour away from Seattle, but you feel like you are in a different world. Far away from the traffic, the noise, and the lights, you are in a peaceful mountain paradise. Our home offers an enclosed deck with a hot tub, so you feel like the river flowing through the back yard is all yours. The front yard offers spectacular mountain views.
The home is cozy and warm, and offers all the amenities that you would need to entertain yourself at home. We have a huge fireplace that heats the home very nicely, a gas fireplace for more instant heat and ambiance. Even the drive up the road offers amazing views, including Sunset Falls.
Once you are in Index, you are less than thirty minutes from Steven's Pass Ski Mountain. Steven's has some of the best skiing and snowboarding in Western Washington. You are also close to many snow shoeing trails. If you prefer summer sports, kayakers put their boats in at the end of our road to enjoy the beautiful Skykomish river. We are also close to Lake Serene and the Index Wall, which offers climbers a difficult and rewarding climb.
Our home has hard wood and cork floors throughout. A towel warmer is in the bathroom (a great treat in the morning). There is a king size bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the second bedroom. The couch is also incredibly comfortable. We have done everything we could to make our home comfortable, and the perfect escape from the city.
As an outdoor enthusiast, Index is where I love to call home. I love to ski in the winter and hike and camp in the summer. I also love to travel and always enjoy visiting new places and discovering new things. In addition, I really enjoy working on my home and putting unique touches on things. I love antiques and I use as much antique as I can in my decorating.
The Owner purchased this house in 2005
I originally bought a cabin across the street in 1992. I completely fell in love with Index. The mountains and the river are so beautiful. I always felt at home when I was there. In 2005 the house across the street from my cabin came up for sale. I immediately bought it and set about updating it. Index is so close to all the things I love. It is twenty minutes from the ski slopes, five minutes from the Lake Serene hiking trail, and fifteen minutes from the Index Climbing wall.
Our home has the most gorgeous view of the river from the kitchen and the living room. You can sit at the dining room table and watch the river flow by, or you can go out on the deck and watch the river from the hot tub. The front yard offer spectacular views of the mountains. The house comes equipped with a big screen HDTV, PlayStation 3, XBox, and a DVD player.
we are back in the "urban jungle" after spending some glorious in the country days at your beautiful Index river house. How happy we are that we found you! Mike went hiking on Monday and I spent the day exploring "up river" and then later staying put reading a book and listening to the sound of the river in the background. We are already talking about when we can get away again...perhaps in October.
I was amazed at all of the "things" you had in that house...as far as kitchen accessories, you are prepared for everything from baking a cake to mixing margaritas!!
We tried to leave the house in perfect condition...though it was hard to leave the house, period!
We didn't try out the hot tub...maybe another time when the temps dip below 80!
Thanks again for the opportunity to experience such a great place!
We loved this cabin. The proximity to the river was key as we could hear its rushing waters at night in bed. The kitchen was well equipped for any culinary occasion. The highlight though was the hot tub built into the deck. Overall it was a beautiful property that I cannot recommend highly enough.
My boyfriend and I rent cabins for us and our two dogs regularly, and this one is now one of our favorites! It was a beautiful place to spend Christmas. We cooked several meals in the fully equipped kitchen and spent many relaxing hours in front of the fire. The hot tub was wonderful after long days of boarding and snowshoeing. The owners were very responsive and friendly. You will not regret your stay here. Was bummed to come home!
This might have been my best cabin experience and I have had many of them! The best part being the kindness and flexibility beaming from the owners of the property. They are extremely accomindating and it is obviously reflected in the cozy, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere fo this cabin! Highly recommended!
This cabin is as comfortable as you can get. The owners have thought of every possible thing a person could need or want, then added twenty more things! I've never seen such a great library of movies and wi-fi included anyway so you can stream even more- unbelievable especially for a place so out in the magical forest. It's an adventurous drive to get to the house with incredible views all along the way. Sunset Falls is a must see (1.2 miles one way moderately easy walk) an epic waterfall. The hot tub is quite high tech and heats up VERY quickly. Lovely touches all through the house- especially loved the lighting and TWO fireplaces! All the cookware and design items are very high end and classy. Many items could have been "skimped" on and we're not. Very cool antique GE stove that cooked really well. There is even a extra cold special drawer for beer that got it icy cold! Great directions for getting to the house. Owners we're extremely accommodating - catered to every request made, answered questions promptly, made us feel welcome. We look forward to making this a yearly family trip and so nice not to have to spend days researching VRBO's- we've found it!
Thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in Index, WA.....the fully equipped kitchen, firepit out back, abundance of towels, wonderful collection of movies and the great hot tub on the back deck made this a very enjoyable visit. The owners were very attentive to anything needed. We will look forward to visiting again!
