Lovely riverside setting, exceptionally well-equipped

We found this a very cozy and comfortable place to stay. It was very well-maintained and the kitchen had absolutely everything anyone could need for cooking and serving food. The washer and dryer were very useful and worked well. The TV could do with updating to a newer model, but we didn't really come there to watch the box all day, it was much nicer to sit on the deck and watch the river go by. It also lacked Wi-Fi, but we managed to pick up some internet at the local library. The town of concrete was much more attractive than it's name suggests, it has some historic buildings as well as a fine bridge and dam. The nearby Baker Lake is lovely and the location was a very good base to explore the North Cascades. We had a great time there.

This place is even better than the pictures show - it's warm, pretty, and felt much more spacious than I expected! It was clean and cozy and had everything we needed - we just had to bring some food and our excitement. It felt like we had a vacation home - much more comfortable than a hotel, and a great location. We never heard a peep out of the neighboring lots, and the beach access a little ways down the road was beautiful and serene. The yard was well-kept and clean, especially for this typically windy, rainy, fall season weather.

My daughter and I stayed here and had a blast - she's in elementary school so I was concerned that she would get bored when the weather turned rainy, but Robin has provided a great selection of movies and games at her cottage, and there is a place not far away in Concrete to rent videos. We were never bored and wished we'd had more time there.

The cottage is well prepared for visitors - with everything from cupboards stocked with dishes, pots and pans, silverware, etc., to bird viewing guides and brochures to the activities and tourist locations in the area. She made a wonderfully informative and organized notebook explaining how the TV, furnace, etc., work - just as you'd find in a big hotel chain. The bedroom with a curtained door was perfect for my daughter, who is sometimes nervous having her own room in a new place. She loved the way it was set up!

We received an email beforehand with everything we needed to know for the trip - a huge relief for someone like me who tends to over-think the trip preparations. We knew exactly what resources would be available and what things we'd be able to do in the area before leaving for the cottage, which helped us avoid overpacking. Robin was quick to answer any questions we had while we were there, and has a local contact for any additional assistance needed.

I didn't expect to get a cell signal while at the cottage, because of the location, but was surprised to find I did get a useable signal on the sunny days.

Some of the reviews on this site refer to the furniture as "old" and "outdated". While the may not be brand-new, the furnishings were in good condition and very comfortable. It added to the charm and "homey" feel to have furniture that felt like it belonged in a well-loved home. The beds were very comfortable, too - and we loved the electric fireplace!

I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone interested in a tranquil getaway surrounded by nature.
