Beautiful Riverfront Getaway In The Cascade Mountains

Waterfront cabin with kitchen and patio
A Cabin On The Sky is a fully furnished, adults only, riverfront home located directly on the bank of the North Fork of the Skykomish River in the town of Index, WA. The accommodations have been designed primarily to serve a couple looking for a comfortable, romantic place to get away to. Although there are two sleeping quarters that could accommodate more guests, I have found that I am sometimes faced with 5-6 loads of laundry and more cleaning than I wish to endure when more than two persons stay. Couples are asked to only utilize one bed. The second bed will accommodate guests who do not wish to sleep together.
In addition to the unobstructed world class river and mountain views found at A Cabin On The Sky we have provided our guests with an outdoor hot tub, fire pit, charcoal BBQ, picnic table, satellite beamed flat screen television with blu-ray dvd player, free WiFi connection, unlimited long distance telephone within U.S., stereo w/ CD and iPod/mp3 dock, washer/dryer, board games, and a propane fireplace for their comfort and convenience. All bed and bath linens are provided as well as bath soaps, shampoo and a hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Sleeping quarters for up to 2 persons are a master suite with a king size bed and an additional bedroom on the main floor with a queen size bed in the event that guests choose not to navigate the stairs or if 2 friends stay that wish to sleep in separate beds. There is a 1/2 bath in the upstairs master suite that includes a bidet toilet seat and a full bath on the main floor. In addition to the comfortably furnished living room there is also a dining room and a sun room, a cozy space where many guests spend a lot of their time while at the cabin. Sipping a hot beverage in the morning with the river flowing just out the window is a great way to start a day of relaxing. Fine art prints and paintings adorn the walls throughout the home as well as hand-crafted stained glass windows. The kitchen is fully furnished for our guests to prepare most meals. Kitchen amenities include a full-size refrigerator and stove, coffee maker, coffee grinder, French press coffee maker, pots and pans, flatware, dinnerware, microwave, blender, cooking utensils and glassware.
The 972 square foot home is on 150’ of riverfront.
Views upstream from the property are some of the peaks in the Wild Sky Wilderness Area (before it was designated a Wilderness Area we supported that effort as a business when it was before the U.S. Senate and Congress), downstream you will see Mounts Index and Persis. Looking south out from the living room to the tree line beyond the river is the newly developed Heybrook Ridge County Park. nA 45 minute hike will take you to the viewpoint with in-your-face views of mountains and waterfalls. There is also an ADA trail named Erinswood under construction, and to the north is the Index Town Wall, a mecca for rock climbers, located in the Forks of the Sky State Park and is also home to Peregrine falcons. Steven’s Pass Ski Area is about a half hour drive away. Other outdoor activities include river rafting, kayaking, hiking, biking, fishing, photography and plein aire painting. It is also a great place to just relax and renew yourself. In the Fall and Winter months resident bald eagles often perch in the trees across the river and snack on a salmon on the shoreline across from the cabin.
In addition to our many local guests and those from throughout the U.S. others have stayed with us from all around the world including Europe, South America, Canada, Australia and China.
Come and stay at this owner-maintained and cleaned home where you will feel hugged by the mountains and whispered to sleep by the river.

Amazing cabin
This cabin was an amazing way to not only spend thanksgiving, but also my partners birthday. It has been meticulously decorated in a way that can only be done through years of intention and care. I was surprised it had so many 5 star reviews until I saw it for myself and realized just how amazing this cabin truly is. This was a perfect escape to be able to forget about the worries of the world for a weekend. I hope to come back again some day.

Beautiful cabin and views
We couldn’t have had a better experience at this cabin. The views were amazing, surrounded by mountains and the river. The cabin felt like home with the most comfortable bed, couch, and chairs, up to date appliances, the view from the breakfast nook was the perfect way to start the day, and we enjoyed the hot tub under the stars. The white noise of the river was relaxing and we slept like logs. David was quick to reply to any questions we had. We can’t say enough good things about our stay and if we ever get back to Washington, we’d love to stay here again!

What a special place
Wow, what can I even say? This is our 5th visit to the cabin. It is one of the most peaceful and beautiful places in the world if you ask me. Besides the amazing scenery and sounds of the river and hot tub under the stars.... the cabin itself has so much charm. David has put so much thought into every detail. The bed upstairs is so comfy, the kitchen has every thing you need, whether you want to really cook a big meal or not. We love that the shower has great water pressure and large towels... good wifi connection... I could go on and on. Every year we are excited to see what little touch might be new, he never disappoints. Thank you for sharing your ever so special cabin with us, no doubt we will be back again.

Couldn't ask for much more
Beautiful property surrounded by mountains, right next to the river. It's like you're shut off from the world for a little bit. Just what you need to refresh. I took my mom here for a couple days to reconnect and she would not stop talking about the decorating. It was her dream house: lots of wood, antiques, and unique design details. Wait til you see the toilet. Owner couldn't be more hospitable. If this place is available, take it.
