The Story of the Cottage – MultiSport Resort
This little cottage has is a dream come true. As an avid recreationalist and competitive amateur athlete, this cottage on Lake McDonald is a home, a place to train & recreate and a place to relax. From the front steps of this cottage we spend our weeks hiking, biking, swimming, trail running and more. We have been remodeling and updating the house, but keeping it natural, quaint and unique. All the hardscape landscape materials are recycled from other site. The brick pathways are old chimneys from small homes in Snoqualmie Valley that were damage in the Nisqually earthquake. Native plants have been salvaged from sites slated for development. We are making our efforts to recycle, reuse and reduce by utilizing small cottage character and working with the nature that share its space. You will enjoy your stay at our MutliSport Resort leave refreshed and rejuvenated.
