About Liam Cole and Heidi Heimarck

We both manage Artspace Everett Lofts, residental housing for artists located above The Schack Arts Center in the downtown core. Everett is located a little under an hour away. Close enough for us to be available to you should you need anything not provided there for you.
Liam Cole and Heidi Heimarck purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Liam Cole and Heidi Heimarck chose Index
In the late nineties, we were looking for a place where we might escape the go go go life-pace of Seattle, a retreat where time slows and the creative muse can sit with you. This spot on a curve of the south fork of the Skykomish river was presented to us and we took it. We found the serenity of the place, the abundance of ferns and cedars, the flow of the river and the occasional eagle flyby to be a welcome relief and retreat from the everyday.
What makes this Cabin unique
Remote yet close, intimate but expansive, a break away from the barrage of the internet and technology but connected with the heart of nature without sacrificing comfort. The cabin is a Pan Abode cedar, which can be an aromatic delight. Birds of all stripes flock to the feeder on the deck. Even a weekend with the sound of rain falling on the roof is as relaxing as a day in the sun in the hammock. Located directly on the South Fork of the Skykomish River just a hop, skip and jump from Canyon Falls.

“It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.” Please consider this you home base anytime for a glorious quest or adventure.
We needed a quick getaway and wanted peace and solitude to relax with our dog and this place was a wonderful place to do it at! The deck is very dog friendly and the hot tub was amazing!! Would definitely recommend this cabin!!
The wife and I brought our 4 year old son, 12 year old daughter and our German Short-hair Pointer for a long weekend escape from the city. The cabin was great for us, well appointed with all the essentials and very clean. Our dog truly enjoyed all the birds visiting the bird feeders, the kids loved the river and Mom and I enjoyed the hot tub. The area was extremely quite and peaceful. Considering that dogs are allowed adding the gates to the deck was a wonderful idea! The kids took the hide-a-bed with the dog, and Mom and I enjoyed the very comfortable Queen bed. This is a wonderful cabin for a couple or a small family with a of couple younger children. We truly appreciated Liam and Heidi sharing their cabin. Thank you !!!
I highly recommend this property. It is a cozy cabin nestled by the river - to which every little detail has been lovingly paid attention. Liam was an attentive host; and, from the hammock to the hot tub to the very comfortable bed, this was the perfect retreat. We will be back.
