About Marilyn Blackburn

I live 25 minutes away and have had so much fun fixing up this cabin and making a pleasant retreat for people! I hope you come and spend a couple days taking in all that Granite Falls and Canyon Falls Cabin have to offer! You will never forget it!

Marilyn Blackburn purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Marilyn Blackburn chose Washington

Granite Falls is 30 minutes from the big city and yet a world away! One stop light, and the gateway to year round enjoyment, so I knew when I saw this cabin that it was the perfect cabin, on the perfect spot above the river, in the perfect town!

What makes this cabin unique

I love this cabin for several reasons...the most obvious is when you look out the window, the river is rushing right past! It looks and sounds beautiful. The cabin was built in 2000 so it has all the features I want in terms of conveniences, but the setting in the forest invokes the rustic, outdoors feeling that I want.

Disappointing and over priced

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the cabin to a dishwasher of dirty dishes and dirty towels in the washer. After 2 days our clothes smelled of cigarett smoke. Access to the creek is impossible and dangerous. I do not recommend this cabin.

Owner's Response: Wow, I didn't see this review until today and am very sorry you didn't contact me directly when you found the cabin wasn't ready! If you look at our other reviews you will see that we keep a lovely cabin for our guests, but we had a schedule glitch and the cleaning lady thought you were coming the next day. I am sorry that it wasn't completely ready for you. Marilyn

A great little place not far from everything - but far enough.

  • 4 of 5

Honestly - I wish I could rate a 4.5. Others have mentioned it so maybe this is unfair but the only thing that keeps this rating from being a 5 is the bed. Unless it has some emotional value for the owners I really would recommend spending a little bit to replace the very squeaky frame.

We enjoyed the view and area. The house was set up perfectly for our needs. I enjoyed building fires in the wood stove. The kitchen was great and had all the utensils we needed. We ate a meal at the Barbecue Bucket - recommend it.

perfect cabin

  • 5 of 5

I loved this cabin the moment I walked in. It's very lovely, and comfortable. I want to go back, but am thinking the weather in this area is not the best?

In any case, it's a great place to be, even in the pouring rain. Hot tub is really only a two person one, but is fine. The Jacuzzi bath is a nice luxury!

Maybe only one slight negative is the stairs to the upstairs loft and bedroom. They are bare wood and a bit slippery. A runner would solve that problem easily. Otherwise, I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a special getaway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback, I am glad you enjoyed the cabin and I really like the idea of putting a runner on the wood stairs. I have had the cabin for nearly four years and never thought of that. If you do come back you will be please to see we took your suggestion thank you

Lovely Cabin, Lovely time

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cabin on the river in the woods. The cabin was clean and very inviting, it was perfect for a weekend get a way. It was very cozy and provided everything we needed during our time there. We are always grateful for rentals that allow pets - we would not go on vacation without them. The properties next to the cabin were closer than we had expected, and occupied, but this did not deter or affect the ambiance of being in a quiet cabin in the woods experience. When we arrived the hot tub was not set up and we called about it - someone arrived to get everything set up within an hour - this was very appreciated! We had a wonderful time and would recommend this cabin rental.

Thank you for making this cabin available for vacation rental!

Beautiful Cabin on the river!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay, both having grown up in a cabin - but no longer having access due to parents' divorces. It was wonderful to take a retreat here and recoup before starting a new chapter in life.

Cozy but spacious, the river lulls you to sleep and the woodstove keeps you warm. We opted out of the hot tub but really enjoyed indoor baths instead.

For winter and early spring, this was a great alternative to camping - especially with some new found diet constraints. We got the woodsy feel of the outdoors, and it was only an hour away from home. Thank you!

Just a note: the tub will heat the bath for you if you turn on the jets.

Beautiful property, soothing sounds of the river

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice. The house is nothing fancy but cozy and right on the rushing river = great environment. Town is close by for shopping, restaurants, etc. The hot tub was small but nice. We went on an awesome hike, Robe Road I think it was called. We wanted to go hike the ice caves, but found out they are closed down until April. We also stopped to check out the fish run area of Granite Falls, it was awesome. All in all, great weekend getaway. The house was well stocked, warm and comfortable. Great deck to enjoy the river view and sounds. Went with 3 adults and our young children and everyone had a great time. My nine year old son though the loft area was the coolest thing ever. My only complaint was that the beds weren't super comfortable, kind of hard. I would also bring extra blankets and pillows as there weren't many available besides small throws. I always travel with my own blankets and pillows so I used my blanket for extra padding on the bed to stay comfy. Overall, great place to stay! Happy we went.
