Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Central Cascade Mountains - 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.

With appreciation

Our family had a wonderful, refreshing time at this lovely cabin. The fireplace, hot tub, and comfy beds are great. The view of the river and forest from the huge windows is fabulous. Thanks for all the preparation and care in the cabin. It really shows and made our stay even better.

Tranquil and beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing weekend unplugged, and out of the city. The property is as photographed and well cared for by Rita whom clearly loves her properties. I would definitely book with Rita again to get away and take it easy.

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!

Perfect Thanksgiving getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for Thanksgiving. This adorable cabin was perfect! Rita is amazing and very thorough in explaining the "how to's" regarding the fireplace, jacuzzi, etc. Having the river so close was quite therapeutic. It snowed one day and became a magical Winter Wonderland! The jacuzzi was such an added bonus too! All the amenities are there. The kitchen is stocked very thoughtfully with all the things you need, especially to pull of a Thanksgiving feast! Very cozy and comfortable. We want to come back in the Summer! I highly recommend the Harmony Lodge!
