Riverbend Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Come to the Riversong Chalet Retreat and breathe in the peace and tranquility of nature overlooking the white-waters of the Snoqualmie River's most southern fork. This charming Chalet has been updated to make for a comfortable and inviting get-a-way! Situated just across from the John Wayne Trail and nestled in a canopy of evergreens, it is the perfect spot to meditate, read, write, paint or satisfy your hunger to hike, kayak, bike, golf or ski.

The Chalet has soaring ceilings matched by sweeping views of the boulder filled, foamy whitewater river and towering fir, aspen, cedar and hemlock. Eagle and Osprey fish happily here, while Mallards and Heron have also claimed the river for sunning and fishing. Elk, deer and squirrel can be seen and lend to the feeling of blending with nature. Although located just minutes from I-90, once on the property, you'll feel a million miles away.

The downstairs bedroom is fitted with a queen Tempurpedic mattress. The upstairs loft bedroom has a four poster with a firmer queen mattress with memory foam toppers for an extra comfortable rest. There is also a single sleigh bed in the loft for a child or extra guest. The loft is 400 sq. feet so there is plenty of room for the cots located in the closet for extra sleepers! (**Note: There is also a PacknPlay located in the upstairs closet if needed) The home is cozy and charming with ambient lighting, spiral staircase to the upper loft, wood floors, a cushioned porch swing and fire pit on the deck.

We are located 10 minutes from the Snoqualmie Casino which features world class dining and entertainment! The town of North Bend is the home of the legendary Twin Peaks filming and Twedes Cafe where memorabilia abound. Twin Falls St. Park, Mt. Si and trails, Rattlesnake Lake and hiking trails, and The John Wayne Trail are all within either walking or biking distance or minutes by car. Snoqualmie Pass ski slopes are just fifteen minutes east! We have supplied games and books, two color televisions and a hearth to warm yourself and loved ones by.

Get past a writer's block, rest from the chaos of the city, or just come to have a welcome change of pace! This comfortable nest will be a delight to arrive at and hard to leave!

About Valerie Fogel & DeAnne Dodson

We have been residents in North Bend since 1997. We fell in love with the mountains and the rivers, the hikes and the scenery. We love to travel, write, paint, and spend time with family and dear friends. Being a part of the Great Pacific Northwest is and will always be a passion. The smell of the fir trees, the roil of the river, the eagle and wildlife that share these vast and intimate spaces are our extended family and never ending source of satisfaction.

Valerie Fogel & DeAnne Dodson purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Valerie Fogel & DeAnne Dodson chose Washington

We bought this home to have a retreat to share with family and friends. It feels miles from the hub-bub of the suburbs or the city, but is actually just minutes away from nightlife or the airport!

What makes this chalet unique

The most treasured benefit of staying at this property is the close proximity to nature and the serenity and peace that brings!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came here to escape from the "real" world for a few days and couldn't have found a better place. We enjoyed spending time exploring along the trails and the river. The weather was perfect for relaxing on the deck, enjoying the sights and sound of the river. It was nice to let the city ebb away to be replaced by the soothing sounds of nature. The chalet was cozy, comfortable and romantic. What a rare treat to be able to relax in front of the fireplace while enjoying the sounds of the river just outside the door.

Everything here at the chalet met and exceeded our expectations and we definitely hope to return in the future.

View is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The chalet sits within feet of the beautiful river with a large deck for enjoying the view. There is a nice gas grill, upholstered swing, small fire pit and side chairs on the deck. The kitchen/dining/living room are open allowing for views of the river from the inside and good flow for relaxing. Location is an easy 10 minute drive to downtown North Bend for dining and shopping with a cute general store, 9 hole golf course and restaurant within a few minutes of the chalet.

Chalet was clean and beds very comfortable. Upstairs loft is very large with a tall queen bed and twin sleigh bed so chalet easily sleeps 5. Caution that the only bathroom is downstairs and there is a tight spiral staircase from the loft. My sister and I slept upstairs so it worked fine but my elderly parents wouldn't have been able to do it.

Nice place to stay when visiting Seattle

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean, quiet cabin located directly along the river. Nice play to stay when visiting Seattle and keeps you out of the hustle and bustle of downtown. Same price that you would pay for a cramped Seattle hotel room.

The river roared, wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, peaceful location, we had a wonderful time. Bed was very comfortable, Ann uses a walker and managed O.K. with the steps and the bathroom. The large trees are great. We had three fantastic days on the river. Thank you. Howard Johnson

Great Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "river house." It was a great find allowing us to visit relatives in the area and also be located close to fun things to do. We went to Snoqualmie Falls and hiked, went golfing and did a river float out of Fall City...the location of the "river house" is beautiful with the river right off of the back deck. The kids enjoyed romping on the rocks in the river, and exploring the lovely nature. The sound of the river is soothing and great with a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the deck. The house is clean and well-stocked, and we had all of our meals there, including use of the BBQ, and the fire pit for s'mores. It really felt like our home away from home, with the feeling of being away-from-it-all, while still being close to Seattle and freeways. It's so nice to stay at a "home" as opposed to a sterile hotel. It really made our vacation seem like a vacation!

Restful, relaxing escape!

  • 5 of 5

We were in North Bend for my husband's family reunion and decided to try VRBO, for the first time, as North Bend really has no quality accommodations. How lucky we were to find the River's Edge chalet! It is the perfect location....close to all activities and shopping but also very quiet and in a lovely setting. My husband grew up swimming in the Snoqualmie river (the middle fork) and enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking the river. The chalet was great. It had everything we needed...except a good coffee pot, but that was a minor inconvenience. Everything else was perfect and we look forward to returning some day.
