Why the Owners Chose Mount Baker: : Glacier is a beautiful and peaceful place with lots of things to do. We chose Glacier and The Mt. Baker area because of its beauty, the awesome mountains, incredible scenic views around and the four seasons for year-round activities. Glacier is a wonderful small town, with friendly people, a few great restaurants (Graham's, Milano's, Chair 9 Pizza and the Wake'n Bakery) and a world class ski and snowboard resort just 30 minutes away. Enjoy hikes, scenic drives and local events. We are close to the necessities of life, but yet away from the hustle & bustle. The city of Bellingham is just 40 minutes away. It is a step back in time when life was simpler. We came for a visit, fell in love with the area and decided to own a part of the experience and area forever. Now we want to share it with everyone!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Lots of relaxing, great walks, hikes and recreation in the summer, fantastic skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Then after the day activities soak in the hot tub on the private deck covered with a gazebo.

This was a great way to get away and with a short travel time

  • 5 of 5

I had been thinking for sometime about renting a cabin when I found this gem. My trip was planned a personal retreat for just me and it couldn't have been more perfect. A nice walk to the river, quiet and peaceful area made it perfect. The cabin was cleaned and all the necessities minus the food and travel things. I am already counting down the days to when I go back!

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We came to visit Washington for respite from the Texas heat. This area near Mt. Baker was fantastic and just what we were looking for. The cabin is clean, well equipped and a good location if looking for easy access to hiking trails. We enjoyed the hot tub each evening after long days of hiking. The owner is very responsive, professional and friendly. We were able to watch the Olympic games in the evening and plan our next days itinerary as there is Direct TV and Wifi. If going there to hike, I recommend doing the Wild Goose Trail to Artist Point and from Artist Point to Chain Lakes down to Heather Meadow, beautiful Iceberg Lake is something special is see on this hike (7 miles total). August was a great time to hike in this area as it wasn't crowded and the scenery was gorgeous. Thank you for sharing your cabin with travelers like us who are looking for somewhere special to stay instead of boring hotel accommodations.

Owner's Response: We are so happy to chose our cabin for your getaway from the Texas heat. You are right, there is no better location to hiking trails in the Mt. Baker area then where we are located. There are many options and your recommendation is an excellent one. There are not too many places in this world as beautiful as the Wild Goose Trail to Artist Point and from Artist Point to Chain Lakes down to Heather Meadows no doubt. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the High Speed WIFI and DirectTV. The hot tub is an excellent way to unwind and recharge the body of a long day of hiking. Thank you for choosing us and we hope you will come back and see us for another getaway.

Relaxing, perfect location for hiking

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin, everything we needed was there. We hiked the Heliotrope Trail, less than 10 miles from the cabin. Cabin was clean and ready for us, no problems with wifi. Hot tub was glorious. No noise (except the mowing of grass along street, but was short-lived), no neighbors for now, until the place next door sells. Loved walking around and looking at other houses and cabins, dreaming of the future. Nice place to visit, even better if we could afford to buy a place to get away. But this cabin is perfect and reasonable for us for now. Both the owner and property manager are easy to contact and responsive when needed. Will be back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to write a review of our cabin. We try and stock our cabin with all the comforts of home. We have an AMAZING property manager who takes care of the property like it is her own. Certainly the hot tub and gazebo is a big draw for our guests and it is maintained on a very strict schedule so it is always perfect for our guests. Our cabin as you learned is very quiet and we are situated on the back of our property so it is very private. We try and keep our prices reasonable so we can share our home with as many travelers as possible. We appreciate the kind words. Responsiveness is our #1 goal to make sure you have the best possible getaway experience with us. We hope you stay with us again soon.

Good area for exploring

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us and thank you for taking the time to review your experience at our cabin. We are going to buy some updated lamps for the main living space to give some more light for our guests so thanks for the heads up on that. We just invested in a brand new washer and dryer so we are pleased to hear you enjoyed those new appliances. We just added a new hot tub cover, lift and storage for the cover to make it easier to take on and off. You are correct when saying there is lots to explore. There are plenty of hiking trails all around for all levels of hiker and if you are more adventurous there is a ton to see in the greater Mt. Baker area. We suggest the beautiful chain lakes trail up at Heather Meadows past the ski area. It is amazing!
