Beautiful Riverfront Getaway In The Cascade Mountains

Adults-only cabin with outdoor tennis court and spa tub
A Cabin On The Sky is a fully furnished 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.

5/5 Excellent

Our stay at the cabin was just what my significant other and I needed after a very challenging year. Communication with David was outstanding!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect getaway for any season
The pictures sold us on this property and having been there I'd say they don't do the place justice - the views of the mountains and river from every room are truly spectacular. The house is comfortable and was everything we were looking for in a weekend getaway right on the river. We'll definitely be back and want to experience it in different seasons of the year. Thank you!

5/5 Excellent

Another amazing stay at Cabin on the Sky
My husband and I had such a wonderful time at Cabin on the Sky. It's just a magical place for us. The views from the master bedroom and the dining nook are breathtaking. When we arrived the sun was out and all the mountain peaks were visible. We enjoyed the hot tub and could see the moonlight dancing on the river. Even when it was raining/sleeting or snowing it was fun to watch the landscape change with the weather. The cabin was cozy and very comfortable. And the upgrades in the kitchen just seal the deal, it's the best cabin in the area. Thank you David!

5/5 Excellent

Already can't wait to stay again!
My friend and I were truly stunned by the loveliness of the cabin. You feel like you're right on top of the river (because you are!); even though the weather was bad (driving rain the whole time, so we didn't enjoy spectacular mountain views), the beauty of the spot still managed to blow us away. The cabin itself had everything we needed to be extremely comfortable. Truly, our first night there I was dreaming about when I'd come back. Thank you David!

5/5 Excellent

Midwinter break
This was a fantastic property. Everything was lovely, clean, modern, cozy and comfortable. The view is beautiful, the sound of the river very relaxing. David was super helpful and quickly responsive to my questions. I would definitely stay here again.
