Hyak Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2.5 baths with Mountain Views right off the ski hill.

Our cabin is our family jewel, a place to relax and get away from the city. We are just off the ski hill at Summit East ski area (Hyak) at Snoqualmie Pass. Walk to the hill or enjoy three other areas, Summit Central, Summit West, or Alpental, within a five minute drive.

After skiing, hiking, biking or golfing enjoy a beautiful dry sauna, or enjoy time relaxing, listening to music on the deck or in front of the fire.

Just 25 minutes away is Suncadia; a world-class resort with fine restaurants, and the Swiftwater Winery. Golfers will love the Prospector course designed by Arnold Palmer, the Rope Rider course designed by Peter Jacobson and Tumble Creek the private course designed by Tom Doak. You may also enjoy winter activities at Suncadia like cross country skiing and ice skating.

We have four bedrooms; three with queen beds and one bedroom with two single beds for the kids. There are two full-baths and a half-bath.

We love to cook so the kitchen is fully equipped and ready for your family. The big downside is we do NOT have a dining room. So with a lot of people meals can be crowded.

The sauna and mud room are downstairs giving you a clean and comfortable space to store gear and warm up after a hard day on the slopes. There is also a space downstairs for kids to escape to watch movies away from the adult area upstairs. A full laundry room is also downstairs. There is an office upstairs with a double bed as well.

You can expect a clean nice home with beautiful views, privacy and peace. You will have access to four ski areas, great hiking, biking and golfing.

Our cabin is unique because it is so close to the city of Seattle, yet so far away.

About Rick Jewett

We are a Dad and two daughters who love to travel and meet new people. We love skiing, golfing, hiking and biking. We also love the beach and look forward to adventures as a family and on our own. VRBO and Home Away will help us meet new people and explore new places in the world. We will be respectful guests and will expect the same as hosts.

Rick Jewett purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Rick Jewett chose Snoqualmie Pass

We bought this weekend get-away because it is 55-minutes from Seattle yet so far away. In the winter the snow is light therapy from the rain in Seattle and in the Summer the mountains are beautiful to explore.

What makes this cabin unique

Peace and Quite!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rick was a fantastic host, checking in throughout the reservation process to make sure our stay was great. The cabin was just wonderful, full of everything you'd need for a comfortable and fun stay. This is a great place for a family or group of friends to enjoy the Summit. I would love to come back! I highly recommend both Rick and this lovely cabin.

Great location. Well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this at the last minute for an event in Kirkland. The owner responded quickly and was very helpful.

The unit has everything we needed for a week's stay - bedding, towels, laundry kitchen stuff, a grill with charcoal, even a leftover cold one in the fridge waiting. It was clean and comfortable.

Great location. We enjoyed numerous mountain hikes in the mornings and evenings on our trips back and forth to Kirkland, about a 45 minute without traffic. There is a lot to do on-the-way and nearby.

I highly recommend this unit.

Great hide away in the most beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

The place was great and located right where we needed. The neighborhood was quiet and allow us the enjoy the beauty of Washington. We could not have asked for anything more

One thing that might help if the check out process. What do we as guests in you home should we do to keep you home as inviting for the future.

Wonderful, clean cabin, plenty of room & great location

  • 5 of 5

Great spot, close to all things Snoqualmie. Lots of bedrooms/bathrooms. Soaring ceilings and tall windows add lots of natural light. Kitchen has all the tools needed for cooking big family meals.

Great Ski Cabin

  • 4 of 5

This property is set up perfectly for a weekend ski vacation. It is only a short walk to the end of the street and you are on the slopes of Summit East. The ground floor is set up with a drying room where you can remove all you ski gear and then head on into the house. It has a retreat for the kids in the basement where they can watch movies while mum and dad have a glass of wine next to the fire looking out at the view.

This property is well equipped with everything you need.

Property was as described

Clean and maintained.

Owner was great and easy to deal with and responsive to questions.

Yes I would recommend this property.

Attractions - skiing obviously. It is a quick run ( 3 mins or so ) up to Commonwealth restaurant or Dru Bru for an evening out.

Convenient and cozy Hyak retreat

  • 5 of 5

This property is a wonderful retreat for families wishing to have easy access to Summit East as well as Seattle. We have visited twice with friends and everyone -- parents and kids -- loves it! The sauna and pot belly stove are always a hit. Thanks for the wonderful mountain hospitality! We will be back.

Will be back again!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at Hyak - only down fall was the lack of weather cooperation. We'd hoped for a snow weekend, got beautiful sun shine instead. The cabin is in the perfect location & so cozy it feels like home. The beds are super comfortable, there was more room for our family of 8 than expected & the place was very inviting. Rick, the owner is very friendly & easy to work with. The whole experience felt like we were borrowing a friends cabin for fun & memories. We're already planning for our return stay.
