Lovely with a few frustrations
Pros-Beautiful spot, the lake is stunning, sunset was amazing, cabin is clean, comfortable, and well put together. Overall its a nice fairly private spot.
Cons-As I read reviews before booking, I read one about difficulty with directions. I wrote it off to someone who struggles with such things. I was incorrect to do so. When I spoke with the management company enroute they said just follow the odometer references in the directions, and that the road signs were all screwed up. What I found was the road signs are fine, but the cabin house numbers is the issue. As you come in along the lake and see the vertical house numbers at each cabin DO NOT think you missed it when 9092 is not right after 9091. The numbers start at 903X and go up to 9091 then jump to like 9135 then 92xx...no 9092 which is what you need for what they call "cabin #97".. Do yourself a favor and drive along the lake through the cabins and ignore the address numbers. Just go until you see the little white flags along the road that say cabin 97 and follow them in. We figured it out but turned around twice because we could not figure out why 9092 wasn't next to 9091.
No access thru the porch door. You drive up to an entrance with a nice cover porch. This would seem to be the obvious enterance and it goes into a little mud room which is nice as this is a no shoes dwelling. We were not given a key for this door and had to go around on to the deck to enter. The steps to the deck are not uniform, with the last step up being half again as high as the other two steps. Coming down in the rain made this treacherous as the first step down was really slippery and there is no hand rail. To top it off, all three entry doors have dead bolts that are keyed on both sides so even once we were in we could not unlock the porch door for use. I moved the mat around from the porch to the deck steps so we didn't slip.
There is a very wide set of steps going down off of the front/lake side of the deck, there is about 3 feet of slopping ground at the bottom of the steps then an approx. 60 ft steep brushy drop to the lake. If I still had young kids, I would not be able to relax for a second. They seem pointless and dangerous.
There is a nice dock with an umbrella base but no access to said umbrella (shade) or any chairs. Bring folding chairs if you want to sit by the lake in the eve.
Weekdays were very peaceful, neighbors were obnoxiously loud on the weekend. They don't observe the quiet after 10 rule.
Fishing Trip 2019
We had a Great stay. This is fishing in luxury. We arrived on Thursday and stayed until Monday, and felt like we did not want to leave. There was enough room for everyone, the beds were so comfy. It was hard to get up to go fishing in the mornings. The kitchen was small but we were able to get around and get our meals prepared. The cabin was clean and tidy. The access to the lake was good. Little trail off the back of the house was easy to navigate. Also able to launch my little boat down by the dock. Some of us fished off the dock and were able to catch fish from the dock. We all agreed the this is something we want to do again. The area was private and quiet. The views of the lake were spectacular. We had my daughter come up and we did family photos because it was so beautiful. In the evenings we played games. That were there in the cabin. We stayed up until midnight each night because we did not want the day to end. For the reader in our group there was a shelving unit full of books to choose from. There is a tv monitor to be able to watch movies. Each bed had enough blankets, and it looked as though the top quilt was hand made and very beautiful on each bed. The cabin deco was "cabin camping" coordinated. I am going to be recommending this cabin to all of my camping friends.
Hi Veronica: Thank you for the outstanding 5-star review for family Cabin #97! We are absolutely delighted to hear that you had an enjoyable time during your stay at the cabin, and that you had an opportunity to take advantage of the private dock while you were there. Yes, for the most part it was a Chamber of Commerce weekend, and we're very happy that the weather cooperated during your stay. Many thanks for the ship shape way in which you left the cabin upon departure. It was truly a pleasure hosting you. We would highly recommend you to other hosts, and we look forward to seeing you again during your next trip to Mt. Baker :) Happy trails, Dan
Lights were dim, other than that a great place to stay. Right in the lake. Great place for a getaway
Thank you for the 4-star review for family Cabin #97! We are very pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable stay at the cabin. You should try it during the summer when the lake is teaming with fish, and all of the foliage is in bloom! That's a great time to put that private boat dock to use! We would like to thank you for the neat and tidy way in which you left the cabin upon departure. It was truly a pleasure hosting you, and we look forward to seeing you again the next time that your travel plans bring you back our way :) Happy trails, Dan
Beautiful view- so serene
Cozy little cabin, very secluded with a wonderful view of Silver Lake. we could sit on the deck for hours and just take in the scenery. The bedrooms were tiny but comfortable. The kitchen was pretty well equipped, but honestly- no salt, pepper or cooking oil?? That seems pretty basic to me. I have stayed at a lot of VRBOs, but never one that didn't supply those simple items. I would have given it 5 stars except that the directions to the cabin were so bad. After driving up and down the road several times we finally gave up and went back to the rental office and they had to lead us. The directions should have said that the house numbers were completely out of sequence and we needed to drive all the way to the end of the road. Pretty frustrating, but once we were there, we loved it.
Thank you for your review of Cabin #97! We are very pleased to hear that you had an enjoyable time. Yes, the view is spectacular. When servicing the cabin, I often take my lunch and just sit on the deck overlooking the lake...so peaceful! Due to local Health Department regulations, we are unable to provide any form of "food product consumables" (including spices and condiments). This information is included in the materials that are sent to our Guests at the time of reservation, so that they can prepare for their stay accordingly. We are sorry that you didn't read that ahead of time. The cabin is definitely somewhat remote...and that's the charm, so our map with driving directions is very specific. We can't post signs on other people's property, so you have to pay close attention to the directions, and that will lead you in. I would add that the cabin is booked virtually every weekend during the prime summer and winter rental seasons, and we don't typically receive any commentary regarding guest's ability to find the cabin. Many thanks for the respectful way in which you left the cabin upon departure. It was a pleasure hosting you, and we look forward to seeing you again soon :) Happy trails, Dan
Sehr schönes abgelegenes Ferienhaus am See
Sehr schönes Ferienhaus an einem abgelegenen See Mitten in den Wäldern von Washington am Mount Baker.
Empfehlenswert und eine Reise wert.
