North Cascades Skagit River Retreat

Riverfront room with kitchen and balcony
Peace and tranquility at the gateway to North Cascades National Park—under two hours from Seattle! Spacious, cathedral-ceilinged wood construction in a rural paradise.

World-class fishing (or just watch the salmon run!) at the confluence of the Skagit and Cascade Rivers and top-rated hiking in the North Cascades, near many trailheads including spectacularly beautiful Cascade Pass and Hidden Lake/Lookout.

Chalet comfortably hosts two to six adults in two large bedrooms (master suite and loft) plus a sofa bed in the great room. An additional bunk bed nook for two persons each under 150 pounds (kids, assumedly) brings the total to eight.

Complete kitchen and optional laundry, within walking distance of Marblemount for dining and shopping.

Weekend rates do not apply on stays of five days or longer.

5/5 Excellent

Great Location
The Rainbow House was clean, spacious, well equipped and located close to hiking trails. We enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful setting. Convenient for outings to the Cascades. We even saw a rainbow on the property. Not a lot of options for restaurants or stores, but wasn’t an issue for our group.

5/5 Excellent

Rainbow House in Marblemount
Our group of four senior all-male day hikers was looking for a comfortable house near the North Cascades National Park. After comparing the listings available, the Rainbow House looked like a good fit, and we were not disappointed. The house was clean and comfortable, well equipped, and the owner was very prompt in responding to our questions and concerns. The house was a great base for our day hikes, and, with the good TV system and many good books and games, was a good place to hang out when the weather was not favorable for hiking. We will definitely consider staying at the Rainbow House again if we return to the North Cascades area in the future.

5/5 Excellent

Great basecamp for daily jaunts into North Cascades Nat'l Park
I used Rainbow House for a brief stay at NCNP as part of a long-form hiking trip that spanned the PNW. This house could not be better suited for people looking to relax and/or enjoy daytrips around the greater national park area. It is very conveniently located between Cascade River Rd. & the Ross Lake NRA, making it easy to feel like you're never far away from any of the more accessible views & trails. As far as the house goes, this is a spacious, very well-maintained property and honestly better than I was expecting, given its rural nature. Huge open yard, lots of space inside, OUTSTANDING views, and everything I used was in working order - not that I used many things in the house, because all I really ever did in the evenings was sit on the covered porch and enjoy the scenery with a cold beer. Washington will never be able to complete with Big Sky country for sunset vistas, but Rainbow House comes close - it feels like you're sitting in a PNW version of the Yellowstone Ranch. Many thanks to Steve for his quick response to my inquiries and allowing me to use his outstanding property. I don't know when I'll be able to make it back to North Cascades again (too many other places to see!), but when I do, I'll be looking this place up again.

5/5 Excellent
