Overview

About the property

Two bedrooms, hide-a-bed in living room & futon, 3 bunk beds & sleeper chair.

Relaxation and tranquility at the gateway to north cascades national park—under two hours from Seattle! Small cabin feel with riverfront to explore.

World-class fishing, kayaking, floating and bird watching right along the cascade river. Magnificent hiking in the north cascades, near many trailheads including top-rated, beautiful cascade pass.

House sits above the river about 100 yards from the river.

This cozy riverfront house comfortably hosts two to nine adults in two bedrooms plus a sofa bed in the living room and a den/bedroom equipped with 3 bunk beds, sleep chair and a full sized futon. Some floor space for the non particular adventurous souls. Plenty of riverfront to put up tents for a peaceful night sleep.

The house is fully kid equipped with pack-n-play, high-chair, toys, bottles/bowls and gates.

We also have a luxury trailer on the property for rent if you have bigger parties and need more space, sleeps 10. The trailer sits on the far side of the property, if it happens to be booked consecutively with your booking - you won't even know they are there.

We do have space in the garage if it is needed for bikes, snowmobiles, boats or motorcycles

Great house close to town!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here! The house and particularly the wood stove were a welcome sight after an especially rainy hike back down from Hidden Lake. The house is close to the trailhead (around 10-15 minutes away). It's also minutes from the Marblemount Cafe (which was delicious) and the rest of the restaurants/the ranger station in Marblemount. Mary was very accommodating and responsive. She even let us park one of our cars in the driveway a day earlier than our booking.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the house. We had 5 adults and 2 kids and there was plenty of room for us all.

The house had everything you could possibly need!

The weather was gorgeous so we spent most of our time outside on the deck, at the fire pit, and down by the river. The little digging area for the kids was a nice surprise and really kept them busy!

We ate at the Buffalo Run (ok food, bad service) and the diner (great diner food and delicious pie-we tried 7 flavors!).

Communication with Mary was great-she was quick to respond to my questions and offered great suggestions.

We would definitely stay here again!

A perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We came to Washington for the National Field Archery Tournament. This was the perfect house for us to stay in after a long day of shooting. We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and the outdoor dining area. Your home is in a beautiful part of God's creation. We felt like we were in Eden. Hope to return.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Really nice house very close to north cascades NP, the weather wasn't great while we were there but I imagine a BBQ down by the river would have been amazing.
