A rustic (nicely updated), clean, comfortable, cozy, pet friendly classic cabin with large hot tub. Brand new (2016), one of a kind, rustic modern kitchen and main bathroom. Close to Mt. Baker Ski Resort Area of Mt. Baker, Whatcom County, WA, United States. Convenient location in a gated community of Snowline in Glacier WA, United States. This is a great home base for year round activities in Mount Baker area (aka Koma Kulshan) in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, North Cascades.
This classic Mt. Baker Twin Tree House Cabin 1 is great for families, groups and couples as the community amenities are just steps away. Flex space (kitchen, dining, living and 1 full plus 1/2 bathrooms on main) with four bedroom on upper floor. The kitchen has been completely redesigned (rustic modern) with new quartz counter top and island, new range and dishwasher along with new laminate flooring throughout the main floor. Of course, relax in the large private hot tub that is tested for water balance and thoroughly cleaned after every stay. Large front deck (with a large Douglas Fir tree growing through it) has a BBQ grill for gathering, cooking and relaxing.
New for 2017 is a 18,000 BTU high efficiency super quiet ductless mini-split air conditioner and heat pump to keep the main level comfortable year round. Yes, an air conditioned cabin in the woods (main level only)!
Note that we do not use harsh chemical to clean the cabin - natural products like vinegar and other biodegradable cleaners (Simple Green, ECOS detergent) are used whenever possible.
Interesting note: The Mt. Tree House Cabin 1 cabin is featured in Shelter: Cabin Chronicles on Huckberry as The PNW TEAL CABIN (photo by @robstrok - must have caught his eyes!) that received thousands of comment on Huckberry's Face-Book page about the huge tree sticking out of the front porch and its bold teal color (Benjamin Moore Colonial Blue actually). That is why it is called the Tree House 1. Tree House 2 has a tree sticking out of the back porch.
