Overview

Washington 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.

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.

Great location and well cared for

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here even though it was a short one. We wished we were able to stay longer. The home, has been well cared for and communication from the owner was great. The area is really beautiful and being by the river was a lot of fun.

Charming Chalet by the River's Edge

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared the chalet with his sister for a long weekend in June. We were in town for a high school graduation. It is very peaceful and relaxing. The long deck spans the back of the house and overlooks the river. It is just beautiful. The house is very comfortable. There is a bedroom downstairs and the second bedroom is an open loft upstairs. My husband and I used that and I felt like we had plenty of privacy. The beds were very comfortable. It was very clean when we got there and DeAnne & Valerie were quick to respond when we could not figure out the TV. Breakfast was the only meal we cooked there but the kitchen was adequately equipped to accommodate that.

I will definitely be adding this one to my favorites list!

Beutiful stay on the river

  • 4 of 5

We needed a place to stay while having some work done on our home so decided to on the Chalet next to the river. It was very relaxing to sit on the back deck and listen to the roar of the water. We saw ducks and an Osprey fishing, we watched the bats in the late evening swooping down to catch bugs over the water. The Snoqualmie Valley Trail is right up the street so I took our dogs walking several times a day. The trail is flat and great for bike riding too and has wonderful views. The house is cozy with a pretty well-stocked kitchen. The beds are comfortable and the wi-fi was nice to have so that I could work from the house.The furniture in the den wasn't the most comfortable but I spent most of my time on the deck in the swing or at the little outdoor table since the weather was so nice. We had one problem while we were there but I was able to contact the owners without any problem to let them know about it.

Convenient yet secluded getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My parents were visiting from out of state and stayed at the chalet for a long weekend. They wanted to be close to my home in Snoqualmie, yet have a vacation feel . The south fork of the Snoqualmie river runs directly under the back deck of the chalet, creating a unique ambiance. This is a peaceful and beautiful place to stay if you want to relax. The trail across the street provides hours of nature walks for low impact, after-dinner exercise, while the more ambitious, can drive five minutes to the trail-head for Rattle Snake Ridge (the main road is a bit sketchy for pedestrians). My parents were very happy with their stay at the River's Edge Chalet.

I would definitely recommend others to stay here.

Cozy and Serene!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for our weekend getaway to a really super charming and very well stocked cabin that literally sits right on the river! The owners had taken the time to warm it for us and left a nice note describing the locations of all the heaters. The views are fantastic and the location is so close to everything...hiking, biking, kayaking, restaurants, antique hunts or shopping. We enjoyed the peace and amazing proximity to the river. Will definitely be back!!

Owner's Response: Our goal is for all of our guests to feel warm and welcomed during their stay with us. The location truly is something to experience. The proximity of the river really can't be beat!
