Why Wesley Schnell chose Mount Baker
We worked on Seattle's eastside and the property's location offers the best convenience, privacy and views. The log chalet has easy interstate I-90 access to downtown Seattle. Although a countryside oasis, you still have a full grocery store, numerous restaurants, world class gaming, and retail shopping close by. The log chalet which is on a private road also offers maximum privacy. Three hundred feet tall evergreens line the acre's boundaries to offer beauty, wildlife, and most importantly seclusion. The panoramic views of the Snoqualmie River with the Cascade Mountains in the background are unmatched. Serenity now!

Mesmerizing Views with all conveniences of home
The house is a beautiful log cabin where you feel totally secluded in the woods (even though you are in a neighborhood). The views are spectacular from the house, 3-tiered deck, and property! We went the last week in Oct. and the fall colors were so beautiful even though we had 2 days of light rain. In the beginning of the week we were able to walk on the river rocks in the backyard, but not the last two days as it was amazing to see the river rise behind the house from the rain. We really enjoyed watching nature for hours from the huge family room windows. The cabin was clean and had all the conveniences of home. The bathrooms had everything including nice towels, soap, shampoo, cotton swabs, and hair dryers! The kitchen had great appliances (including coffee maker, blender, and toaster), a full set of pots/pans, cups, glasses (even wine glasses), plates, bowls, tupperware, cutting boards, and every utensil you could ever need. We had a toddler with us, and there were toys and books for him to enjoy. We have a few tall people in our family so unfortunately the twin beds were too small but the family room couch was huge and a good substitute. The driveway is very steep but manageable. We turned our car around in the garage which made it easier to go back up the driveway to leave. The garage also included bikes (2 adult & 1 child), sport balls, snow shoes, fishing poles, and an inner tube.
Additionally, there are a lot of great trails and waterfalls within 15 minutes, grocery stores, restaurants, and outlet malls within 10 minutes, and a fantastic family restaurant within 2 minutes.
I would definitely recommend this cabin and plan to come again. Next time I would like to come in the summer to take advantage of rafting from the backyard, catching fish to barbecue, enjoying a bon fire, and sitting on the deck (with no rain, lol).
This One is a Sure Thing !
I know, there are a ton of vacation rentals. We have had several bad experiences with other vacation rentals which can truly ruin a well planned vacation.
Well, this one really is a sure thing for my family and I wish they are could be as easy as a stay at the Seattle cabin. The views are even better in person, the value is great for the money, and the property is truly world class.
We arrived and were immediately smitten with the garden surrounding the babbling river. My husband broke out the fly reel and fished until sunset. I personally enjoyed the library which had a great selection of books. The next day the kids all went tubing down the river which was very calm but a whole lot of fun.
Quit wasting time and pick this one - just not when we want to stay again ;)
WHAT A VIEW - A+
My wife found this place after spending bunches of hours looking at options. Real good views of the natural scenery. Family saw deer, eagles, and elk. Our relatives are doctors and stay at lots of fancy places and said this place was A+. We loved our time here and can't wait to come back.
BEST VACATION FOR FAMILY OF FIVE VISITING SEATTLE FROM CHICAGO. ATTENDED A WEDDING NEARBY. LOTS OF WINDOWS, SEE THE RIVER, SEE THE MOUNTAINS, SMELL THE EVERGREENS. SUPER COOL VACATION FOR EVERYONE. EXCELLENT VALUE.
Relaxing, serene, in touch with nature
My husband and I took our four boys to the large log cabin in September. The home had so many helpful details to make the most of our time there. Great panoramic views from every window.
We played in the shallows of the river, took the inner tubes out, skipped rocks, had s'mores by the fire and did the hiking trail walking distance from the property. The boys enjoyed sleeping on the deck and playing board games supplied by the owners. We will make another trip to this beautiful property. The house was very clean and well maintained. No complaints from us at all!
TUBING AND VIEWS = AWESOME SUMMER
Let me try to say it all. First, we just love this place. It's somewhat rural and peaceful. The large log home was very clean and had what we needed.
Going downstream in a tube is just the best scenery and the water is crystal clear. Definitely worth doing. We woke up each morning to watch the rushing river. We saw woodpeckers, eagles, bluejays, robins, elk and deer in just one week at the property.
Cell service was good. Wifi was good. The beds were very clean and comfortable. Zero complaints.
I highly recommend this place for a summer getaway for relaxation and we will be back. We hope this helps someone's decision making. We had narrowed our own list down to three places to stay and we are so glad we picked this one. The pictures look great, but it truly is even better in person.
