Our getaway cabin
The cabin was perfect for a couples getaway to enjoy the area and have a nice cozy place to come back to everyday. It was just the right size and the kitchen was great for making most of our meals. Great location to hiking and sightseeing for the area. Could not have been better, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Mom- Daughter get-a-way
Very delightful! The ambience was warm and welcoming. We absolutely loved the whole experience. Very peaceful, birds chirping, rabbits jumping. We were greeted with the smell of woodsy cabin loveliness. The fireplace was such a treat, already prepared for us to simply light it. The place was very clean, and had everything we needed. Great location. We would definitely love to come again. Thank you for creating such a great get-a-way.
Ruztic decor with comfortable amenities
Perfect cabin in tbe woods on Silver Lake for a week or a weekend. Fun decor with bears and moose aplenty throughout the cabin. Counting the bears could keep an eight year old busy but no real vears in the area to threaten trash or residents. Well equipped cabin with many touches by owners who have anticipated the needs of guests. Services and supplies about seven miles away in Castle Rock. Canoe and kayaks avalable at the Lake. Mt. ST. Helens Visitor Center nearby with the summit and major features to the east. Very enjoyable three night stay.
Great Cabin Retreat Between Mt. St. Helens Excursions
My wife and I highly enjoyed this unique and charming cabin. The family provided single and double seated kayaks, a jet ski, & paddle boats to enjoy on Silver Lake whenever we like. Star gazing on the Lake was fun, but use bug spray. Exploring the lake and the islands in the middle of the lake where we were going to do a zip line excursion the next day was fun. It is centrally located right by the 1st Mt. St. Helens visitor center and we drove along the one road around the mountain to see all 5 visitor centers and excursions offered in the area.
Enchanted Cabin in the Woods on Silver Lake & Mt. St. Helens Tour Route
We're really happy we found this cabin. It was perfectly located along the main road that goes around Mt. St. Helens, which allowed us to stay at the start of the main road, beginning with the 1st visitor center as we journeyed all weekend around the mountain to check out all 5 visitor centers. Nights were like sitting in an enchanted forest, just high enough above the lake grounds, but by the lake and not right next to the lake where the mosquitoes congregate at the basin, which was a 3 minute walk from the cabin. In between helicopter tours, zip lining tours, and driving along the one main road to see the different visitor centers and Bigfoot Gift shops, we enjoyed the kayaks and paddle boats the Beldings provided their guests that was neatly stored right on the lake behind their home. The cabin is built so well inside, that the quaint, country look of the outside of the cabin gave us a nice surprise. We had so much fun coming back to our little cabin in the woods and tooling around Silver Lake in their provided water crafts that we could've been two happy chipmunks just lounging in the cabin and enjoying the lake. We wanted to stay in this cabin and not return to work on Monday. If you get a chance to rent this cabin, DO IT!
Cozy and Relaxing
My husband and I just returned from our 3 nights up at this cabin, and could not be more pleased with our stay. Everything was perfect and I want to thank Dan and Susan for really making this lovely cabin a fantastic little getaway available for those of us so busy with life that sometimes you just have to stop and disconnect.
From the moment we arrived, to watching all the wildlife, to the fantastic VHS videos provided, we let the stresses of life melt away. Of course we were early in the season to go up to Mt. St. Helens, but we did drive over to the Ape Caves and walk in the nature paths in the area for some fresh air.
Evening spent listening to our Jazz music by the wood fireplace and hot coffee on the porch laughing at the Chimpmunks, BlueJays and Squirrels to the sound of the rain on the roof was complete bliss. The cabin had everything we needed for our basic comforts and the feeling of privacy and beautiful views was just what we both needed.
We look forward to returning one day and enjoying our time in this cabin again.
There are five Mount St. Helens visitor centers located on State Highway 504, the main route into the National Volcanic Monument. Each offers different educational exhibits and viewing opportunities, along with shops, refreshments, and restrooms. Most offer access to trails.
The best way to experience the mountain is to spend a full day, or more, driving east on highway 504, stopping at visitor centers, trails, and view points along the way. The extent of the devastation - obvious even three decades after the 1980 eruption - unfolds with each mile. Yet you will also see nature's amazing recovery, plants and animals of all kinds.
If you only have a short time to spend on your Mount St. Helens visit, the visitor center at Silver Lake is located just off Interstate 5 and offers excellent exhibits and a moving film. If you have time to drive all the way in, but can only stop at a single visitor center, choose the Johnston Ridge Observatory. Both offer stunning views into the volcano's crater.
Note: Volcano viewing is highly dependent on the weather. However, if visibility does not allow a view of Mount St. Helens itself, spending time in the blast zone, visiting the centers, and hiking along interpretive trails is still an experience of a lifetime.
Mount St. Helens Ape Cave Lava Tube is a popular attraction in the Mount St.
Helens National Monument and the longest lava tube in the continental United
States at over two miles in length. The Ape Caves are located on the south
side of Mount St. Helens and accessed through Woodland - go up highway 503
past Cougar. Driving time from I-5 and highway 504 where all the Mount St.
Helens Visitor Centers are to the Ape Cave is just over an hour. The Ape Caves
are open year-round though the parking lot gets snowed in during the winter.
