Gateway to North Cascades National Park on the Cascade River

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage



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.

Comfy and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with all the comforts of home. Well stocked with just about anything you may need. Came up to Marblemount to float the river and see the bald eagles, would love to come back and stay during the summer and do some hiking. Highly recommended.

Nice Charming place; but was smelling !!!

  • 3 of 5

Its a great house; location was awesome, conveniently located near the town; however the place was not clean. There were pet hair and pet smell everywhere. Third bedroom was swamped with lot of residents' personal belongings and was smelling really bad. Other than that it was a pretty charming house, great location right by the river, the housekeeper and her husband very nice and helpful !

Great Family Thanksgiving Get-Away

  • 4 of 5

This is our second year in a row coming to the house in Marblemount. It had been updated from the previous year and was fantastic! We loved all the updates, and with more family staying overnight with us, the room with the bunks, and the accommodations in the trailer were perfect! It's the perfect get-away!

My stay at the Marblemount house was amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

The house fit our group of 4 perfectly, with more than enough space and cooking area. The property is very close to the river which we enjoyed during our stay. The surrounding area is amazing with many many outdoor activities. I would recommend this property and will stay again when I am in the area.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are coming to the park to hike, you couldn't find a more convenient place to stay. It's on the road to Cascade Pass, Hidden Lake, and Lookout Mountain. The other direction will take you directly into the park where there are many other hikes. The house is comfortable and quiet. Everything you need is there. You can walk down to your own private spot on the river and watch the salmon. We had a great week!
