Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Gold Bar - Blue River Cabin

Mountain & river view, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, spacious 960 sf, sleeps up to 5

Welcome to a comfortable, cozy, and fully equipped cabin at an amazingly beautiful location on the Skykomish River across from the forest and at the base of magnificent 5,979 feet Mt. Index. It is about about a 40-minute drive from Seattle and near Stevens Pass. The property is on a 100 foot high river bank, and the floor-to-ceiling views make it seem the wide river is right outside the windows. You have an up close view of river and forest wildlife in their natural habitat. There is Wi-Fi at Blue River Cabin. The attractive color designs and furnishings, and the oak and pine interior and pastel colors, create a serene and comfortable environment. The private hot tub is perched on the view deck overlooking the river, forested mountains, and big sky. Basking in the warmth of the hot tub with the view of stars and planets at night and amusing river wildlife in the day makes for a memorable experience. Have a unique and wonderful experience enjoying the wonderful nature colors and the fresh and sweet smell and feel of the air. Be amused by the beavers, otters, ducks and eagles and geese, rainbow trout and schools of salmon. We have binoculars so you can see this wonderful display up close, including the river wildlife and the forest wildlife across the wide river. You have your 100 feet of river beach, including a walkway for easy access. Fish from your own riverfront or flyfish for rainbow trout or salmon. Bring an inflatable boat to explore the river and the national forest across the river. At the cabin is printed information and maps about nearby wonderful forest service trails, waterfalls, lakes, rock climbing, horseback riding, kayaking and river rafting, bicycle riding, golfing, historic taverns, and restaurants. You only need to bring your clothes and food. We also provide the coffee/tea/sugar packets/hot chocolate/oil/salt-pepper/ketchup-mustard/tin foil. There is a Swedish wood burning fireplace and electric heat throughout the cabin, a washer/dryer with laundry soap, a hair dryer, an iron for pressing your clothes, board games, satellite TV, WiFi, landline phone, DVD & movies, videocassette player & movies. There is an outdoor propane BBQ, picnic table, and deck furniture. Your small breed dog is welcome. Skiing at nearby Stevens Pass Ski Resort is very popular in the winter months; and with your reservation, significantly reduced price ski tickets are available November through March. We welcome you.

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

This cabin made our wedding anniversary extra special! From the breathtaking riverfront view outside to the enchanting fireplace indoors, we could not have asked for more. You will find Rita has thought of every little detail and put alot of heart into making you feel at home. Make sure to take a dip in the hot tub, a cup of coffee on the deck, and skip rocks on the private beach. The Lake Serene trail is also a must, and it's right down the road! I hope this cozy cottage gives everyone the same welcoming feeling we experienced. We will definitely be back! Thank you so much!

It was a lovely home, exactly as it was described. Rita had a helpful booklet printed out highlighting areas of interest. Very peaceful and quiet. No bugs!. We really enjoyed ourselves!

Tranquil & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Rita's riverfront cabin sure is cozy and peaceful. I loved getting up every morning to a cup of coffee, that tranquil river, and a nice fire in the fireplace. We had some nice meals out on the deck overlooking the river. The hot tub is great for a soak after a day from hiking or to relax under the stars.

The kitchen is adequately stocked with pots, pans, and dishes. If you plan on doing very much cooking, you will want to bring a few herbs spices and olive oil. Definitely bring your own food rather than shop at the grocery in town. There are plenty of towels along with a washer & dryer. The bedrooms are cozy.

Altogether, we had a lovely stay and highly recommend our awesome host, Rita, and her wonderful little cabin. She will go out of her way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

Thank you for everything, Rita. You're a peach.

From the hot tub to the comfy bed to the wonderful view and serenity it was great. Far enough off the main road but close enough to find a mocha. Rita was a joy to work with and we look forward to returning
