Bedrooms 3
Space 2,100 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


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.

Magical secluded woodsy getaway

  • 5 of 5

We love this place so much that we came back for a second year in a row! We hope to stay many more times in the future. Dave and Susie are delightful to work with and made us feel right at home. The cabin has everything you need for a relaxing, cozy weekend away. And let’s not forget the hot tub right on the rivers edge!!!

A Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a place that sisters weekend memories are made. The cottage is so warm and welcoming. The kitchen is very well stocked and made cooking and snacking easy. The bedrooms are fully furnished with the master as it own little hideaway. We had six women sharing this space and we all found it warm and comforting. You could spend a week just looking through the variety of books. Listening to the river as we soak in the hot tub was wonderful and a great way of re-energizing. Crossing the swinging bridge over the river is not for the fair of heart. I would not recommend it for families with small children under the age of 7 as there are some small and delicate knickknacks that are too temping for a little one not to play with.

The owners were so helpful and willing to work with us on our arrival and departure schedule.

We plan on returning next year and future years to come.....The sisters...10/28/2017.

Owner's Response: We rent to families with kids all the time and don’t have any problems. It’s easy to put a few things away when littles are coming, childproofing the house. Kids love the magical spaces in the loft and garden as well as walking across the bridge. We’re glad everything went well with your stay. Thanks for your glowing review!

Wonderful Cabin away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the cabin as accurately described in the ad on HomeAway. Susie was wonderful and answered every question we had. We loved hosting our Seattle family over for Sunday breakfast and a few dinners throughout the week. It was such s peaceful spot. The kitchen was well equipped for 9 people to have a nice dinner. My nephews loved exploring the river and the swing. One even tried his luck at fishing! The water was too low to catch anything but it made his day! The house was fine for the 4 of us (all adults). If you're taller you may have to duck through some doorways as they are low clearance but it adds to the charm. The master bed was a little firm for me but my dad was ok with it so we switched rooms. Such a wonderful wonderful spot. I can't say enough on the grounds of the property. So stunning! And oh my word those Hydrangeas!

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.
