They grow all along the Cascade Mountain Range and are everywhere high on the peaks above my cabin so I just had to name it Mountain Rose Lodge. There are even a few in my garden right next to other rose varieties.
Set on a large property not too far from the stunning Skykomish River, this cabin is the perfect place for family and friends to meet, relax, have fun and - shall I say - smell the roses. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, first class televisions, comfy furniture, 2 real wood stove and fully outfitted
It is located in a private neighborhood, with plenty of parking we are not far from where the famed Great Northern Railway was built and now operated by Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad.
Set on two floors you'll find an oversized living room, dining room, kitchen combination and plenty of room for everyone to spread out and have fun on the top floor with a large flat panel smart TV, cable and internet connection or wifi.
On the first floor is another kitchen and living area which also has a flat screen TV and comfortable furniture. You may want to put the kids here but still have them close, but they may want to spend time in the fenced yard and fun playground equipment.
Guests can settle into our nice 3 private bedrooms each of which has a comfortable Queen sized bed, handy reading lights and plenty of closet room.
Both kitchens are fully outfitted with pots, pans and cooking wares. Plenty of dishes and silverware.
For skiers we are located just 34 miles from the incredible terrain at Stevens Pass Ski Resort. It's just another 30 miles to the ever popular Bavarian themed town of Leavenworth in Eastern Washington.
Scientists call it Rosa Gymnocarpa, the bald-hip rose or little wild rose. We just call it beautiful, just like our comfortable friendly home awaiting your stay.
Not as advertised. The property looks great on-line but these photos must have been taken at least 2-3 years ago. Steps at side of house are overgrown so that upstairs is not accessible from outside (and we were told not to go up that way). Toilets needed to be flushed several times to do their job (and 1 kept running so that we had to "flick" the handle to get it to stop). Shower downstairs floods the bathroom floor; the owners know this and posted a sign saying to use towels to wipe it up. Kitchen dishcloth downstairs did not look clean and there was only one. The place was not clean when we arrived; the upstairs coffee table had some food dripped on it (looked like it might have been spaghetti). The downstairs TV was unhooked and we could not figure out how to get it to work; some equipment must have been missing. Also, there is no way you get a view of the river from this cabin and it is not just down a path either. I'm not sure where you would go to see this view because there are private houses all along the river for several blocks.
