Such a wonderful stay. Cannot imagine a more beautiful location. Thank you Chris!

Amazing! Right on the Skykomish River, so you're sitting in a hot tub with sounds of nature, rushing water over the rocks, after a fantastic day spent at one of the activities noted below, enjoying a glass of wine or favorite cocktail. Fire pit is perfect. We had fires almost every night. Fortunate enough to have encountered virtually no rain. Nights are amazing. And the mornings? Sunrises are spectacular, peaking out over the mountains. Several days were perfectly clear. Others had cloud cover low over the mountains. Equally amazing!

Over our 5 days we:

1) Hiked up & saw Wallace Falls

2) Hiked up & saw Bridal Veil Falls (nowhere NEAR as nice as Wallace - skip it if you only do one)

3) Caught an Ocktoberfest parade in Leavenworth- totally fun, and had GREAT food at Bavarian Bistro & Bar. Twice. Shops are fun. Loved it so much that we came back when we...

4) Went ziplining at Leavenworth Ziplines. GREAT!

5) Spent almost two full afternoons at Deception Falls-NOT to be missed. The areas that you can hike after viewing the falls are a true testament to the name "Emerald City".

6) Iron Goat Trail, and COUNTLESS other incredibly beautiful and fun hiking spots.

7) Best sandwich EVER at a place that I believe was called Mountainview Deli, on Route 2.

8) Fantastic day in Seattle-the zoo is wonderful. I personally could have skipped Pike Place Market. Nothing special, to my way of thinking. But hey we saw it, & the Space Needle (kind of ugly) & the new Ferris wheel. Missed the Chihuly Museum. :-(

9) We cooked out on the grill Chris provides on the deck EVERY night, so we shopped a lot at GoldBar Family Grocer, (Yelp it) but there is a little general store right over the bridge in Index if you need to pick up something quick. Quite well stocked.

I feel like I am leaving things off, we had such a great time. My husband was afraid that there would not be enough to do for 5 full days. The reality was that we could probably spend 45 full days and not be bored.

The people you encounter are friendly, helpful, excited to tell you about their towns. We stopped at the Index Town Hall and had an amazing conversation with those folks. Learned a lot about the area.

Met Chris-he's awesome. Truly does everything he can to make your stay perfect! My only quibble? The bathroom needs a sink. :-)

Two Chicagoans had an amazing time & can't wait to got back and stay in Eagle's Nest w/friends. Pics don't do it justice!!!

Perfect short getaway location

  • 5 of 5

I took my girlfriend here for a 3 night stay. We needed to disconnect from the city and just spend some time out near nature. This was the perfect spot to just relax and unwind.

The scenery and location is fantastic. Not too far away from Seattle, and has the right amount of nature. The running river is a real treat while you're out at night in the hot tub star gazing. The mountains are a welcome sight in the morning.

Chris did an amazing job with the cabin and his other properties. It was thoughtfully designed. The VHS player was a real treat as well - a blast from the past. Great hot tub, great fire place. There's no wifi or signal here, which as I mentioned, was perfect for disconnecting from the city life.

Chris himself is a really great host. He's super warm and cheerful. He's very thorough with his communication, so coordinating anything was not a problem at all.

I would highly recommend this place to couples and larger groups (for his larger properties just beside this one). I'll definitely be coming back. Thanks again, Chris!

Romantic Cabin with a hot tub, fire pit and amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

This is a cozy, romantic little A-frame cabin with a hot tub and fire pit. It’s located in a beautiful area with a great view of the mountains and river. It’s a nice and relaxing little place that is nestled next to the river and surrounded by trees.

Make sure to have the directions ready as it is a bit hard to find but it’s worth the search. Once you pull up and see the cabin and the beautiful view you will be excited to begin your vacation. It has all the amenities you will need except wifi and cell reception (which is spotty at best, try down by the river). There is a great big fire pit, a smoker/BBQ (don’t forget the briquets) chairs and a hot tub outside. Inside you will find a nice couch, TV, VCR (with some of my favorite movies), oven and microwave. Upstairs is the loft with a bed and an amazing view of the river and mountains. It’s a great setting for an amazing weekend. We had a great time and I made some of the best steaks ever on that smoker/BBQ using mesquite wood instead of briquets. I’ll definitely be back.

It was my 12 yr anniversary , and both me and my honey's birthday, I prefer to enjoy quality time together and found this little piece of heaven!! I HIGHLY recommend coming to stay, even if for just for a weekend😀 The view is SPECTACULAR , listening to the river so peaceful, I guarantee any worries you have will disappear. The cabin itself is very nice and clean, and being in the hottub at night with the river was a magical experience!!!! We have been back home a week and are already trying to plan a time to come back and bring our family. If you are on the fence about renting this place , JUST DO It you will not be disappointed. Chris the owner was also great to work with ... I just hope if you are reading this that you are not trying to book the next weekend I wAnt to go😀😀😀😀

A Cozy, Getaway Gem

  • 5 of 5

This cozy little cabin is really a hidden gem. The pictures don't really do the location justice. Right when you get there, the atmosphere takes your breath away. With full access to the river and a gorgeous backdrop, this is what enjoying nature is all about. The cabin itself is great for couples, 3 ppl max. It's very clean and has all the amenities you would need (except wifi). Your phone may not have reception here so be cautious of that. The jacuzzi was a bonus for sure! Chris was very polite and we do appreciate him lending us his cabin. Overall, I would highly recommend this cabin for a couple's getaway.

Romantic Getaway indeed!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were having our 3 yr, anniversary and wanted to do something unique. I had searched online and looked at several places but the A-frame in Index caught my eye. The view was nothing short of spectacular with the river right in front of the cabin and the mountain just above. Of note was that Chris had a rope guard in place so you can get to the river safely. Of course the hot tub was nice to relax in during anytime day or night. As far as customer service Chris went out of his way to help me both get to the cabin with clear, instructions, but also had a beautiful flower arrangement and champagne waiting to surprise my wife. That was awesome, thank you Chris that helped set the mood for the weekend. Bring firewood for the open firepit as sitting by the fire at night is a plus. There are several markets nearby that sell firewood however if you can't bring your own. We went to Sultan to see the reptile zoo which I highly recommend. All In all this was a memory to be cherished and we will be back on a yearly bases. This is truly a gem tucked away in a little town I may never have seen. Thanks for everything!
