About the property

Cozy romantic chalet cabin on scenic mountain river, private hot tub,sleeps 3-4

Whispering Waters is a charming Washington state vacation rental cabin in a beautiful mountain setting on scenic Skykomish River 60 miles (90 minutes) northeast of Seattle.

The cabin's cozy ambiance makes it ideal for a couple looking for a romantic getaway, with soaring cathedral ceiling, river view from the loft king bed, and river rock gas fireplace. The hot tub is strategically located overlooking the Skykomish river with the Cascade Mountains looming above the river. The loft's french doors lead to a balcony surrounded by large moss-covered trees, and also has a river view.

The 600 sq ft vacation rental cabin is perfect for two celebrating an anniversary, honeymoon, or a romantic getaway; but can accommodate up to four people for short stays. This cabin may not be suitable for small children due to the proximity of the river and stairs.

The cabin is also great for a relaxing getaway. The rocking chairs on the cabin's front porch are great for watching the river flow by, bald eagles soaring in the winter, and salmon jumping in the fall.

The 40-jet two-pump hot tub a few steps out the door with river and mountain view is terrific for soaking your cares away while the Skykomish River "whispers" by. The hot tub is year-round, and is covered with a translucent roof that provides an outdoor ambiance while protecting you from the elements.

Also outside is a fire pit next to the river bank with a mountain looming above the river. The fire bowl is year-round weather permitting and there is no burn ban. Firewood is not provided but can be purchased at most grocers.

The cabin is on a semi-private lot: two cabins across the river and a full-time residence downstream with fencing and landscaping to provide privacy. The deciduous trees on the river bank are trimmed strategically to provide privacy in the summer without losing the river view.

The king bed in the loft has a river and woods view. A queen bed in the downstairs bedroom provides room for additional people, or if you don't want to climb stairs. Bedding and towels provided.

A small kitchen is set up for simple meal prep, and the dining table seats up to 4 with river view. The kitchen area has a gas range/oven, refrigerator/freezer, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, bean grinder, blender/food processor, and hand mixer. Starter supply of coffee, tea & hot chocolate provided. Dishes, pots & pans, kitchen towels, flatware & cooking utensils also provided. Charcoal grill on the porch (bring briquettes). Some pantry items are usually available, but it varies so feel free to inquire.

The cabin is super cozy in winter with the gas fireplace. For entertainment, there is satellite TV, and WiFi provides Netflix. There are also board games, puzzles, a few paperbacks, and Sky Valley area information.

The cabin will be decorated for Christmas with lights and garland.

At 775 ft elevation, there is not a lot of snow in the winter, but a short drive up the mountain will usually get you to snow for skiing and snow shoeing. However, check road conditions and weather report before coming to the cabin Nov-Feb.

Whispering Waters cabin is in a beautiful mountainous area 90 minutes northeast of Seattle, half way between Index and Skykomish, Washington, just off US Hwy 2. The cabin is close to three wilderness areas (Wild Sky, Alpine Lakes and Henry Jackson) and Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest that offer year round outdoor recreational opportunities. The popular local activities are river rafting, kayaking, skiing, hiking, snow shoeing, rock climbing, and fishing. There is an ORV area close to Gold Bar.

The area around Whispering Waters is not 'touristy' (i.e. not highly developed), yet attracts thousands of visitors due to the rugged beauty of Washington state's Cascade Mountains and the outdoor recreation provided by the mountains and rivers. There are dozens of great nearby hiking trails with something for everyone - easy family walks through the woods, waterfalls, alpine meadows, historic Wellington train disaster site, trout-stocked alpine lakes with crystal clear water, historic lookout towers, old growth forests, and rock climbing. The numerous close by forest service roads are great for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing when the snow level is 1000ft or below. When the snow level is higher, a short drive will usually get you to snow covered roads.

The cabin is on the south fork Skykomish River, mostly a class II whitewater rafting and kyaking river. A good float is from Skykomish to Baring, approximately 9 miles. Be aware that there are 3 sets of non-navigable waterfalls three miles downstream/west of the cabin. Mid to late summer the river is gentle enough for river tubes, though the water may still be cold. The main Skykomish 6 miles west is a class IV whitewater river, with several local rafting companies providing trips through popular Boulder Drop.

Nearby Stevens Pass ski area (23 miles east) is a popular day-use ski/snowboard area. Discounted ski lift vouchers available for purchase with cabin stay. Whispering Waters cabin is on the west side of Stevens Pass, so you don't have to drive over a mountain pass if coming from the Seattle area. The cabin is at 775 ft elevation, and the roads to the cabin are usually snow free in the winter; but one should be prepared for winter driving when coming to the mountains approx. late November to March.

Stevens Pass summer activities are mountain biking, scenic chair lift rides, hiking, pub, coffee shop, and disc golf Thursday-Sunday.

The south fork Skykomish with it's sparkling clear water is a Washington Scenic River with seasonal (June 1-Nov 30) fishing for trout and white fish. Even though it is a whitewater river, there is a calm area in front of the cabin for cold water swimming on warm summer days. The rapids just past the cabin are mild enough in late summer for family tubing. NOTE: there are three sets of waterfalls starting 3 miles downstream of the cabin. Kayakers and rafters start upstream in Skykomish, 9 miles east. There is a small rocky beach below the cabin and is a good place to enjoy the cool river breeze on the occasional hot day. Chairs can be placed in the cold river water to cool off even more. Western Washington weather is usually mild throughout the summer but there will be some hot days. Even on hot days the night temps drop into the 50's or low 60's which cools the cabin.

There are also horseshoe pits for when you're staying close to the cabin.

We are able to keep midweek rates low, starting at $135/night, while providing quality amenities, as the cabin is owner managed and maintained.

Single nights are occasionally available between other reservations or last minute. Contact owner at Sky Cabins for last minute discounts and to book single nights. Single night stays, when available, are for two people/one bed only.

Arrival time 3pm or any time after; departure 11am or any time before.

AWD is not usually needed to get to the cabin, but one should be prepared for winter driving conditions approx late November-February.
