Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an amazing time!!! We were fortunate to stay a whole week and wished it could be longer. It was so wonderful to watch my dogs swimming in the river and having the time of their lives! My favorite part was in the early morning when the sun was coming up and river surface was covered by mist. Rita, you made our stay soooo welcoming and personable. You took the time and effort to make sure every detail of our vacation was wonderful ... we see your magical touches everywhere. We cannot wait to come back! This was like our home away from home. Thank you so much!

Great Spring Break Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away…river, possible fishing, and hiking and then to be able to relax in a hot tub…and then we found the cabin by the river. Rita was quick to respond to all of my questions and then helped me book it very quickly. It was so easy to get to; we were there before we knew it.

Bridal Veil Falls and the Lake Serene trail head is literally just down the road...the hike was great!! We could not have had better weather while we were there. The hot tub was welcomed after the long hike…and to sit and hear the roar of the river while relaxing was perfect.

A river otter visited us the last night we were there enjoying the camp fire alongside the river. The views from the deck were spectacular and we had a fantastic stay! Everything we needed was already there!

Rita, thanks again for everything…we look forward to our next trip up.

Best river views

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this lovely cabin and river views! Spent two nights over the 4th of July. Very peaceful and relaxing! We slept deeply as we listened to the sounds of the river! The cabin accommodated all our needs! We will certainly return to this little piece of paradise!

Perfect getaway with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect! Wonderful hospitality. Very private. The views are spectacular. We hiked to Bridal Veil Falls then all the way to Lake Serene. Tough, but worth it! The hot tub was a perfect way to take in the views and relax. Thank you for relaxing time way from the real world. Hope to be back!

Serene cabin

  • 5 of 5

Between the gorgeous Skykomish river and the full size hot tub I never wanted to leave. Throw in a short walk to Lake serene/Bridal veil falls trailhead and a cozy like home cabin and I wished I could retire here. Quiet, private and a fantastic location makes this a great place for a couples getaway. Especially if you have dogs.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. It is a pleasure to share the river life experience on this wonderful point of land over the Skykomish River. Enjoy the view deck, your own grassy beach, watch eagles and river wildlife from the hot tub perched over the river. The cozy cabin with windows over the river feels like a getaway home. It is fully equipped, including WiFi so you can stream music. With appreciation and respect from Rita

Great view of the river, but disappointing overall

  • 2 of 5

The cabin is quite small and felt somewhat shabby. The bathroom for example has unfinished particleboard walls and a stained shower stall. The provisions were somewhat anemic, for example there were no blankets available besides a couple of throws, and we were cold. The owner offered to bring us two more, but said that they were worn. By far though the worst part of our staying here was the fact that the owner insisted on meeting us at the cabin when we first arrived, in the middle of dinner, and my wife in the bathroom with both of our very upset dogs. She promised not to stay for long but was there for a full 30 minutes explaining every tiny detail while my dogs and wife were trapped in the tiny bathroom.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed the wonderful and beautiful view. It is my heartfelt wish there had been better communication and things turned out differently. I added to the listing: the cabin main floor is 464 square feet and bathroom is 45 square feet; bathroom pictures show the panel and yellow walls and unstained shower; beds in winter months have flannel sheets, a blanket and a quilt, an additional blanket and throw blanket. I purchased more blankets and was told to not come to not disturb their privacy. The cabin is electrically heated to 70 degrees at arrival. It is part of the written reservation process that I meet with tenants at arrival. I came at agreed time and would never intentionally disturb a meal. Orientation/check-in can take more than 15 if tenants have additional questions. Sincerely and respectfully from Rita

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a gorgeous sigh of relief after a botched snowboarding attempt. You couldn't beat the amazing nature views relaxing in the hot tub listening to the river. Ended the night watching tv shows on the comfy cot with the fireplace crackling behind us. Can't wait to come back again some day!
