About the property

Luxury Reclaimed Timber Home 3 Bdr, 2 Bath, Hot Tub, Private, Gourmet Kitchen

Come and stay at the Knotty Lodge in Glacier, a one of a kind rustic mountain retreat, with luxury amenities, custom built by owners in 2013.

As you walk in you are immediately greeted by huge 8x8' rough sawn exposed timbers that come from an old illinois barn, built in 1898. A pleasant mix of barn beams, reclaimed wood walls and sleek drywall creates an extremely cozy and inviting space. Looking across the expansive white granite kitchen counter, a giant stacked stone wood burning fireplace with a 55' flatscreen takes center stage in the main room. Custom wood floors in living areas, slate in kitchen and lower bath, and plush carpet in the bedrooms. Main floor features a queen sized bedroom and main bath with large walk in shower and laundry closet. 2 queen bedrooms upstairs are separated by a large bathroom done in travertine. Double sinks on a custom made walnut slab vanity, glass frame walk in shower with double shower heads and exposed wood beams create a spa like atmosphere. Large upstairs loft area with cozy sectional couches overlooks the living area with the fireplace and hand made antler chandelier.

Our place was designed and built in an eco friendly manner, with our guests ultimate comfort in mind. For this reason we went with all energy star rated appliances and lighting, high grade wood windows, premium insulation, and no voc paints and finishes. Our top of the line trane heating system is amended by a 99.9% hepa filter and an hvr unit that constantly circulates air through the home to maintain clean and fresh air.

Landscaping around the home was done using all native rock that was excavated during construction. Hot tub, fire pit and storage shed in private backyard setting surrounded by tall trees. Sunny front patio is a perfect place to enjoy an afternoon drink while taking in the view of slide mountain.

About Csaba Mundi

We are the Mundis, more specifically Csaba and Rosemary and our little boy, Baxton:) Rosemary works a physical therapist in Blaine and Csaba is a contractor/reclaimed wood fanatic working all over the place.

We grew up in Whatcom County and have been a huge fan of the mountains and snowboarding for all our lives. Ever since we first met in 2006 we both agreed that we wanted a place in beautiful Glacier WA. We got married in 2012 and decided to build our first dream home all at the same time. The foundation for the knotty lodge, was poured on the day of our wedding. -talk about crazy :)

We love meeting new people from all around and sharing a slice of the mountain lifestyle with each and every guest we welcome at the Knotty Lodge.

Hope to se you soon!

Csaba & Rosemary

Csaba Mundi purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Csaba Mundi chose Glacier Springs

Csaba rescued an old barn from Illinois that was built in 1898, knowing that he wanted to build a reclaimed timber home using all the wood he had salvaged. Two years later we acquired our beautiful southern facing lot in the glacier springs community. We had been looking for years at this awesome little neighborhood near Mt. Baker with a laid back lifestyle and the best water in the state.

After we bought the property, we designed the home around the timbers Csaba had salvaged, and built it ourselves with the help of our great friends and family. Our appreciation for using reclaimed and eco friendly materials is evident throughout the home from the native stone fireplace to the hand made barn wood furnishings.

The Knotty Lodge has become a much appreciated get-away destination for many guests since we entered the vacation rental market in Dec 2013

The Knotty Lodge is our first vacation property, and an exceptional showpiece for Csaba's business in log and timber homes and wood working.

We are proud to have one of the nicest places in Glacier, we keep it clean and new and love welcoming all our guests to enjoy it as well.

What makes this lodge unique

Enjoy the feel of a historic 115 year old barn frame resurrected into a beautiful home, top of the line finishes through out, and user friendliness of a modern home are just few perks our property offers. Not having any immediate neighbors makes it a very private and peaceful place. Unwind from the busy city life, or a long day on the slopes in the brand new hot tub, or sip a glass of wine in front of the Rumford fire place.

Wonderful home- we are definitely coming back

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful and well equipped home for our family of 4. Our hosts were very helpful and brought us more wood mid-week. It was the perfect spot for skiing up at Mt Baker and hiking/sledding close by.... we hope to come back before the end of the season!

We loved Rosemary and Csaba’s home! The perfect, relaxing place to unwind. Beautiful nature surrounded the property, and the home’s furnishings were super comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances. Cooking was a breeze! Wouldn’t hesitate to book again. Thank you!

The property is beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Nice bedding,large granite counters and plenty of special details inside the home make this a spectacular cabin getaway. The location is a close walk to the Canyon Creek and hiking trails. It is just a short drive to Mt. Baker ski area and Glacier Springs shops and restaurants. My boys didn't want to leave!

Lovely property in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister and I stayed at the Knotty Lodge while hiking in the Mt. Baker area and visiting Bellingham and Vancouver. It was an excellent base camp for the adventures of the week. The home is beautiful, constructed from barnwood from Illinois that Csaba collected. The kitchen was fantastic and well stocked. The fireplace was used for roaring fires on a few of the nights we spent there. The backyard area, which contained a hot tub and a fire pit (no use during our stay because of a burn ban) was very relaxing after a day of hiking. Plug your phone into the stereo and listen to tunes while enjoying the outside. We've stayed at numerous VRBO residences and this was one of the best.

Csaba and Rosemary greeted us at the house and were great at keeping touch and making sure we had everything we needed. Loved our stay and would definitely return and urge others to visit.

Spectacular home!

  • 5 of 5

The Knotty Lodge is such a well built, well designed, and beautiful home. The beds were so comfortable and the hot tub was such a nice treat after our long hikes on Mt Baker. The kitchen was very well stocked and the fireplace was set up with wood (and if we had had a cold night (which we didn't) the only thing we would have needed to do for a cozy fire was light a match. The owner, Csaba, wasn't available to greet us on our arrival but his friend was, and we felt instantly welcomed. Can't wait to go back!!!

READY to move!!

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled from the Oregon Coast to far Northern Washington and WOW ... we couldn't have been more impressed, relaxed and ready to enjoy 5 days at the Knotty Lodge!! Exceptional amenities throughout the home. We had everything we needed and more to prepare meals (including a fabulous grill), which we enjoyed on the LOVELY outdoor patio table and chairs. We spent a couple of nights around the fire, making smores and enjoying the absolutely beautiful scenery.

We were a bit worried that we may have booked a place a bit too far north, but we are now so happy that we did! We were able to travel up Mt Baker and be less than an hour away from Bellingham, which is such a wonderful place to visit.

All in all --- we will return and stay at the Knotty Lodge AGAIN!! But, only until we can move to the surrounding area permanently!!
