WELCOME TO THE MT BAKER BIRDHOUSE! --check out the rest, then come back to the nest. The Birdhouse has everything that you need, and then some. Private, set deep in the cedars and ferns, yet close to a pretty park and pond, the Birdhouse is ideally situated. Complete, with a Hot-tub, wi-fi, wood-stove and new appliances, the Birdhouse is optimally appointed.

Winter or summer, you really can't go wrong with the Mt Baker Birdhouse. It is close to hiking trails, the Nooksack river, the cute town of Glacier and the Snowline community park which boasts a childs fishing pond, jungle gym, swings and slide, and seasonally has tennis courts and a full size pool with lounging capabilities.

The house is a large one bedroom with a full bath. The bedroom is located on the second floor, where it opens up to the loft area with two twin beds tucked into the nooks. The bathroom is quite nice with heated tile floors and marble surrounding the the luxurious, retro tub.

About Beth Snowlee 360-927-5466

My wife and I live in Bellingham, she is a licensed Massage Therapist, beautiful skier and avid outdoor enthusiast. I am an Alaskan commercial fisher, skier, and enjoy the indoors more so than she. The cabin, for us, is a way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life (such as Bellingham may be). When we come to Glacier, it is the silence that enthralls us. No traffic, no sirens, no trains, just the wind in the trees, and the gurgle of the creek!

Beth Snowlee 360-927-5466 purchased this house in 2005

Why Beth Snowlee 360-927-5466 chose Glacier

The Birdhouse is so ideally situated. Of course Mt. Baker Ski Area is a huge draw for us, but we also love the summers, chalk full of Blueberries, wild flowers, chantrelle mushrooms, awe-inspiring views, the warm winds on cool days and the cool shade in the trees on hot days!

What makes this house unique

For larger parties, or better separation, we also rent THE JIM JACK SHACK vrbo 461023. Located behind the Mt. Baker Birdhouse and up the hill, The Jim Jack Shack is our newest creation. Totally different, equally as cool.

Super clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Birdhouse for a father's day weekend with our 1yr old and 6yr old and were 100% thrilled with this cute little cabin. The cabin itself is clean, cozy and well stocked with books, movies, basic kitchen supplies and comfortable seating. The hot tub is great. The location is super close to the playground, pickle-ball courts, swimming pool and trails. We highly recommend this sweet little spot.

Everything It Said It Was And More

  • 5 of 5

The Birdhouse was an absolute treat. It was a beautiful blend of modern and rustic. The place was immaculate and picturesquely situated. It was a five minute walk through the woods to the river. The woodburning stove and hot tub were definite perks.

I would highly recommend and I can't wait to go back!

There are a million things to do in the Mt Baker area, but there are also a million reasons not to do ANY of them. Sometimes you need to just relax by the fire!

Priority is given to longer rentals; we take two night rental reservations for only the next thirty days. Exceptions may be made, and are done so only by the owners! Likely reasons for exceptions: 1. If your check-in date is the same as the check-out date of the previous guest. 2. If your check-out date is the same as the next guest. 3. If you want a mid-week rental, and it is the slow season. One can view all our reservations by clicking the "flexible dates" box. All major holidays require a three night stay.
