SKY RIVER CABIN- VIEWS, HOT TUB, CLOSE TO HIKING,

Skykomish, WA, USA
  • Cabin
  • Bedrooms3
  • Sleeps6

  • Half Baths1
  • Minimum Stay2 nights

Rustic, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

OUR CABIN SITS ON THE BANK OF THE SKYKOMISH RIVER WITH A SWEEPING NATURAL VIEW ACROSS THE RIVER TOWARD BECKLER PEAK AND THE WILD SKY WILDERNESS in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Nearby activities include hiking, biking, rafting & kayaking, rock climbing, birdwatching, mushrooming, exploring the lakes and waterfalls and historic areas around Stevens Pass, historic Skykomish and Index, or just relaxing to the sound of the river or a crackling fire.

THIS CABIN IS CUTE AND PERFECT FOR 1-3 COUPLES OR A FAMILY TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL! The living area is bright and cheery, with lots of windows looking across the river to the mountain wilderness beyond. The hardwood floors and wood paneling give the place a rustic feel, and you'll love curling up in front of the fire on our comfy leather furniture for conversation, a glass of wine, or a good book or a movie. The living room opens to a deck on the river bank with a table and six chairs and a gas BBQ to facilitate outdoor meals or projects. The dining area has a view of the river by day or the roaring fire at night, and is perfect for after-dinner games on those long winter evenings, or even doing a little work on your laptop (internet access via either wireless or ethernet connection). The fully equipped kitchen is newly updated to feature modern appliances and a beautiful granite countertop so that guests can visit while the chef prepares the feast.

The three bedrooms each feature a queen-size bed, reading lamp(s) and a dresser and/or closet for storage, and a couple of airbeds can be arranged for children to sleep in their parents room if desired. The newly updated main bathroom downstairs has a double sink separated from the toilet & shower, with beautiful stone tile and a luxurious heated floor throughout. Another half-bath and toilet are upstairs. The mudroom is perfect for washing and/or drying wet or muddy clothing after a day out-of-doors, and includes a full washer-dryer.

Enjoy a BBQ on the deck or an evening campfire under the stars, listening to the river. Or soak in the large river-bank hot-tub shared with the cabin next door.

Wildlife lovers will enjoy an ever-changing 'show' starring the occasional Bald Eagle or Osprey, wild ducks (harlequins, mergansers and wood ducks), water ouzels, swallows, swifts, nighthawks, etc., and laugh as the Rufous Hummingbirds joust for territory and mates. Squirrels, chipmunks, and racoons are frequent visitors and at various times we've also seen Black Bears, Coyotes, Otters, Mink, Beaver and Deer from our cabin, and watched sockeye salmon spawn in the channel in front of our cabin. Early spring is especially nice if you like hummingbirds, a chorus of frogs or native wildflowers.

Reservations are accepted from non-smokers only as our home is a smoke free environment, and damage penalties will be assessed for non-compliance. Pets are fine, and there is a nice stake-out area.

About George

We met climbing and skiing with the Mountaineers, and we still love to get out into the mountains all seasons of the year.

George purchased this Cabin in 1989

Why George chose King County

Since we're located on the river bank with a view across the Skykomish River to Beckler Peak, our cabin is a great place to relax. At the same time, our location provides easy access to the entire Skykomish River Valley, up to Stevens Pass, and all the way to Leavenworth.

What makes this Cabin unique

There's nothing better after a day of hiking or skiing than to relax on our deck looking across the river to Beckler Peak and the Wild Sky Wilderness!

                                                                    Chris M.Wausau, Wisconsin

                                                                    This place was exactly what we had hoped for. Great cabin on the river with nice amenities like the gas grill, fire pit, hot tub, updated kitchen and bath and all the cabin ambiance. The hosts were great and had the info we needed and some great recommendations like Deception Falls trail and the fun town of Leavenworth. Definitely worth the drive to experience Seattle but also the beautiful landscape of Washington.

                                                                    This is one of my favorite places in the world!

                                                                    I have now stayed in George and Pat's cabin 3 years in a row, for a month, each time. Next year, I already plan to stay for a week more than a month! The cabin is beautifully set, on a bend in the Tye River, across from the Wild Sky Wilderness, with a direct view of Beckler Mountain. With 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms, it is very comfortable for up to 6 cabin people (we once fit in 7, with one on the floor!). The kitchen is lovely, with a modern, glass top, electric stove, granite counter top, dishwasher, and all the cooking equipment needed to cook elaborate dinners. The deck is lovely, and the hot tub amazing. There is adequate WIFI- I was able to watch Netflix movies using it. The bedrooms are comfy, and the upstairs bedrooms both have magical views.

                                                                    I am a day hiker (did 33 day hikes in 38 days on my last visit to Washington), and this cabin is in the perfect place to access many high trails. The entrance to the neighborhood is literally across the street from Foss River Road, along which there are many trail heads. Many other NFS roads are within a 15 minute drive from the cabin.

                                                                    George and Pat are incredibly supportive and friendly. I truly love their cabin and the neighborhood. I highly recommend staying here!

                                                                    Nice, comfortable river cabin

                                                                    Gary P.Baton Rouge, LA

                                                                    Our family enjoyed our weekend at this clean, comfortable riverbank cabin. We fished and watched pink salmon spawning in the river right in front of the cabin. There are plenty of hiking trails in the area and we took advantage of that and had access to the hot tub next door at the owners cabin to relax in the evening.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Glad you enjoyed yourselves, Gary! Come again!

                                                                    Rhonda M.

                                                                    We had a really great time, the view from the windows & deck are really very pretty. The cabin was a great size for 4 adults, 1 couple & 2 singles. All of us had the privacy we needed & plenty of space whether we were inside or outside. The furnishings/beds were all really comfy. All of us slept really good. The heated tiles in the downstairs bathroom were really nice. Walking along the river & trails was a lot of fun. Loved the cabin décor, especially the stuffed rams & the Road Kill Café Menu Poster. Loved the thoughtfulness of the bottle of wine & card left by the owners. We all really had a great time.

                                                                    Nice cabin

                                                                    Amy K.Edmonton, Canada

                                                                    I rent a lot of cabins and am pretty particular with the features. Overall this cabin was very nice and although we didn't meet them the owners who live next door seem nice as well. The only real downside for me was the lack of land and privacy. The yard was for the dog to go potty was extremely tiny and there were neighbours directly on either side. The hot tub and fire pit are shared with the owners, who weren't home when I stayed, but something to keep in mind. The view from the kitchen, upstairs bedroom and patio was pretty amazing and probably one of the best i've seen from a cabin. If only it had've been sunny when we stayed! There is a bit of a walk to access the river which probably wouldn't bother me if I didn't have a dog. It is pretty great be actually on the river sometimes. Inside the cabin was nice - some cob webs and bugs, a bit of a musty smell upstairs, but nothing unusual for a older cabin and did not bother us.
