This unique log cabin is nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains along the shores of Riffe Lake. The previous owner custom built this cozy getaway cabin using timbers and rock found right here within the Mossyrock valley. Your family will enjoy relaxing around the handcrafted rock fireplace which stretches to the vaulted ceilings, eating meals at the breakfast bar, large wooden dining room table, or on the deck over looking the lake. Sleep in one of the two bedrooms each with its own unique design, or in the loft. Kids will enjoy an exciting game of air hockey upstairs in the family room surrounded with skylights and windows. The fully furnished kitchen is equipped with a Jenn Air stove-great for indoor grilling, plenty of counter space and a favorite place for enjoying conversations with family and friends. A full sized washer and dryer is included. Enjoy roasting marshmallows or hot dogs around the fire pit with the lake in the back ground. There is plenty of lush green lawn to play bocce ball or croquet or just watch deer nibble from the fruit trees. Whether visiting while the oak trees are aflame with vibrant autumn colors or just enjoying the lazy days of summer on the lake, you will be surrounded by nature's beauty.

My wife and I live in Seattle. We vacation at this house in the winter and summer with our four children aged 16, 14, 12 and 10.
This house was so stunning when we first walked into it. The Riffe Lake area is beautiful and has so many things to do.
We love to sit in front of the fireplace in the winter and talk for hours with our family and friends. We also have fun playing cards at the large table with the whole family. We also enjoy bundling up during the winter and taking walks around Swafford pond. During the summer, we also like to eat out on the deck with the family while looking out at Riffe Lake and Mt Rainier. The fire pit is also fun to sit around and roast marshmellows.
