Overview

About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 bath w/ shower, sleeps 6 (+ 2 in charming loft)

Just east of Seattle, Wilkomish sits on 3 acres of towering evergreens amidst the verdant natural beauty of the Northwest. Straddling a river that cascades over granite rock, the property offers complete privacy for a relaxing, fun getaway with family or friends--or solitude for individual respite or creative time. The charming house has a spacious master suite with spectacular river views. Two other bedrooms sleep 4. A well-appointed kitchen is new. The dining room seats up to 10. Log walls line the living/gathering room (in the original part of the house).

Outdoor features include a large deck, hot tub, gas grill, gazebo, footbridge [crossing the river to a playhouse], fire pit, small ponds, and a level lawn area spacious enough for outdoor games. Our river house, while secluded and peaceful, is just 20 to 30 minutes from activities and events in downtown Seattle and a 25-minute drive from the Seattle/Tacoma airport.

We cannot accommodate weddings.

The House:

- Original log cabin room for comfortable gathering includes HDTV (sorry, no cable), DVD player, iPod/CD player, and internet access. Ladder leads to charming loft above living room for kids (or adventurous adults) to play or sleep in

- Views of river and bridge from dining room; table can seat up to 10 people with extensions

- Spacious master bedroom suite with queen bed; gorgeous river views

- Master bathroom with two sinks, large shower, laundry facilities [in closet]

- Flower bedroom with full bed

- Bird bedroom with single bed & pop-up trundle (makes queen bed or 2 singles when pulled out)

- Full bath with tub/shower

- Newly renovated kitchen with plenty of space for cooking and gathering. Viking cook top, microwave oven, convection oven, dishwasher, large refrigerator, wine cooler, coffee maker, toaster. Granite island with bar stools. Table settings, dishes, utensils, pots and pans, and basic cooking supplies (spices, sugar, oil, etc.) provided

- Study/writing room with large windows and a great view of river

The Property: Wilkomish sits on 3 acres of private, verdant Northwest forest. Pass the large frog pond on your left, and park your car at the bunkhouse, then walk along a short path past a tiny pond to the main entrance of the cottage.

The back yard features a large deck with chairs and tables for eight. Relax in the jacuzzi and gaze up at the fir trees and sky. Perhaps our blue heron will visit. Walk toward the gazebo to see the expanse (250 feet) of riverfront. Cross the footbridge to visit our little playhouse at the edge of Tiger Mountain State Forest. Complete privacy, with no neighbors in view in any direction.

At night you might want to light some logs in fire pit or play games on the expanse of lawn bordered by the river and our third pond.

Due to our allergies, we respectfully ask that you leave your pets at home. Smoking is not allowed.

The Area:

Wilkomish sits on a stone-lined, clear water river at the end of a county road. It is secluded and quiet, but only 3.4 miles from I-90. Seattle is a pleasant half-hour drive away. In half an hour, you can be listening to the Seattle Symphony, touring the unique [Frank Gehry-designed] Rock and Roll Museum or Seattle Art Museum, or visiting Pike Place Market. Within 45 minutes by car, you can be on a ferry to one of the picturesque islands in Puget Sound, or skiing at a Cascade mountain wonderland. Seattle offers all of that and much more; there is something for every interest in this beautiful area! Gorgeous scenery, alpine hiking, mountain biking, water sports are all within reach during your stay.

Fantasyland!

  • 5 of 5

A little piece of heaven on earth right here! This home / site is well-represented by the pictures on the VRBO site and will surely not disappoint. They have everything you need in this home, and lots of stuff you didn't know you would need (Unfortunately - we needed first aid supplies, and found those too!) Susie was easy to communicate with, and very responsive to questions. Although we brought in lots of our own food/supplies, there were lots of basic cooking supplies already stocked in the house, which was an additional bonus. Try to think of everything to bring before you come .... because once you arrive, you won't want to leave! Highly recommended!

Great get away location

  • 5 of 5

The overall space is great for everyone! We enjoyed the river, bridge, hot tub, grill, fire pit and more. The kitchen is wonderful for serving a group, we took advantage of that! The area is great, you feel remote but also still close to civilization. Susie was easy to contact and offered different site seeing activities. I would definitely come back.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 adults and 2 children attending our family trip and this house and setting was perfect. The kids loved the loft with all of the toys and the adults enjoyed the hot tub and scenery. Most of us traveled from Kansas and 2 of us traveled from Texas, so this setting is completely different than back home. The owners of the home were very responsive and helpful when we had questions or comments. Highly recommend renting this home, I plan to rent it again in the future!

Magical time in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were in an enchanted cottage in the forest. Lovely cottage, comfy beds, plenty of extras. Thank you, Suzy and Dave, for your hospitable welcome and the lovely spot by the river. We enjoyed the flowers and the music of the water.

A beautiful setting in a relaxing secluded area

  • 5 of 5

This house is a gem! It feels like something out of a fairy tale. It is down in a very secluded private area, but not too remote as to be inconvenient.

The house itself is super charming, a combination of modern and rustic that feels very special. It has plenty of space for a large family gathering, while still feeling cozy.

Our children loved the little loft play area, and the bridge and stream out back. We loved the hot tub, kitchen and living room areas.

The only negative things I could say are that if it happens to be hot outside (rare in this area) it can be a little difficult to manage, I wish there were screens and window coverings on more of the windows. The beds are also a little stiff, but that could be up to personal preference.

We would definitely stay here again if given the opportunity!

Bridge to paradise

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved the cabin - it was so fun to explore the property and all of the cozy places to hang out. Worked great for our group who had a wedding to attend nearby. The weather was absolutely perfect for hanging out on the deck, some even dipped in the creek. We were very much looking forward to the hot tub so we were slightly disappointed that it didn't get past 90 degrees over the course of the weekend. But would definitely recommend to friends! Susie was extremely responsive and helpful. Thank you again!

Owner's Response: Thanks for all of your positive comments. We wish you had said something about the hot tub while you were there so we could have changed that for you. Glad it didn't mar your experience too much.
