Glacier Cabin Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom, two bath. Sleeps 2.

Let the robins usher in the new day! Smell the ripe moss and fern forest that envelope this eco-hip, smartly refurbished 70's A-frame. We took a perfectly good four bedroom cabin and ripped all the interior walls out to construct this diamond in the wilderness.

The Jim Jack Shack is the more grown up, citified version of The Mt Baker Birdhouse (www.vrbo.com/348877) and is located within throwing distance, making them the perfect compliment to each other. Rent the lower house for the kids!

The Jim Jack Shack has been an outlet for our artistic side. Everything here is the culmination of hard work, ingenuity and long weekends by both of us. It has all new appliances, the kitchen is fully stocked with all your cooking needs. There is a nice coffee maker and blade grinder onsite.

Built for utilitarian comfort out of as much reclaimed and recycled material as possible, the Jim Jack Shack is also super insulated. You will be amazed at the quiet. Try it! You will like it!

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
Guestbook comments from the owner
For a weekend that seemed to fly by in an instant. Couldn't have asked for a better place. This was a wonderful birthday surprise trip my boyfriend had planned. Now off to Artist Point to (maybe) see Mt. Baker... Still not sure if it really exists.



Thank you for renting out your amazing cabin. We both love it.

My wife and I live in Bellingam, Wa. with our young daughter and two ornery dogs. We like to spend our time looking for cool, eclectic homes to rent around the world! Although mostly we just stay home and try to raise our daughter the best we can.

eli lee purchased this cabin in 2005

The Jim Jack Shack is the second vacation cabin to be rebuilt by us. Seven long years in the making, we are proud of what we have created, and hope that others enjoy them as much as we certainly do. Located on the edge of the Mt. Baker National Forest, the view out the back entrances. Towering cedars and hemlocks, enormous ferns and moss covered boulders, the serenity is un-equaled.

This is not your run-of-the-mill cabin. We site-built everything possible and re-used old material when aesthetically permittable. The views are completely private and territorial. Look out the window, any window, and your eyes will feast upon delights of the North Cascades. Sword ferns, Western Red Cedar trees, moss galore, Maples and mushrooms. Come for the cabin, you will return for the view (and the cabin). Need some peace and quiet? This is the place. The roof and walls are crazy-insulated, hardly a peep can be heard of what little traffic there is. Stare out the window. It is like Planet Earth on mute. Create your own sound track.

GREAT CABIN IN THE WOODS.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented this place as a retreat from the craziness of our first ever Mt Baker Banked Slalom. The cabin is beautiful with very nice use of recycled and recovered materials. The location is amazing, it was the third day before I even noticed that there was a house on the right.... it feels so isolated and serene. The hot tub is amazing and was much appreciated after a day of crashing on the icy slalom course. I've been meaning to ask where the kitchen table came from....it was obviously had some sort of an industrial use in it's previous life. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a quite retreat close to Mt Baker.

WONDERFUL WEEKEND IN THE WOODS

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently stayed at the Jim Jack Shack to celebrate our 1 year anniversary. We loved getting away from it all and the cabin was perfectly located. There are nearby hiking trails, and even one within walking distance to the cabin that takes you right down to the Nooksack River. We highly recommend this place to stay; it has such character and you can't beat the location and privacy. The cabin had everything we needed: all the cookware, movies to watch, a comfortable bed, and the hot tub was a must have after playing all day. Thank you for the unforgettable weekend!

The Jim Jack Shack is an attraction in and of itself. But if you must leave the cabin, there are plenty of things to do, year round. Some of the favorites of our family include, but are not limited to: Skiing, hiking, picking mushrooms, riding bikes, picking blueberries, sitting at the bar at Grahams, disc golf, jogging on logging roads, bragging about our ski day, watching baby splash in the pool, watching baby do anything.
