Best Cabin experience we've ever had

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 others fit with room to spare in this cozy cabin. Everything worked perfectly. The surrounding area was incredible with a riverside view and fire-pit right there. The cabin was warm and stocked with all the kitchen, living-room, and bathroom supplies we would need. Although we didn't see a single neighbor we were very enchanted by the decorative homes and general care that everyone in the enclosed community seemed to possess. We were almost snowed in for an extra day and we were looking forward to it.

This cabin is a lovely peaceful getaway.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed listening to the River as it rushed by. The hot tub was a treat too! We were snowshoeing by Stevens Pass during the day which was a quick drive away. The cabin was cozy and comfortable. The only part that wasn’t as nice was the kitchen. It has some wear and tear and wasn’t as nice as the rest of the cabin. Regardless, we enjoyed staying at this cute place in Index and will probably visit again next year.

Great mountain retreat

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin for a quick get away. The house had everything you need to be comfortable but was small and simple enough to feel like a cabin. The river was too cold for extended swimming while we were there, but the cabin (and hot tub) are close enough to make it feel great.

The cabin is also close to great climbing, whitewater rafting and mountain biking. Definitely looking forward to coming back and bringing more gear.

You can see the highway from the cabin, but you're far enough away that we didn't hear it and it wouldn't be a concern for pets/kids to wonder into. The only issue we had was with the electronic door which locks automatically. We couldn't figure out how to change the combo which meant we had to keep the door slightly ajar or enter in the 10 digit code. Inconvenient but not a real problem

Overall, great place and we plan on coming back.
