Totally private, the property sits on a acre surrounded by undeveloped forest. Huge old century-old cedar stumps litter the surrounding woods and you'll see where loggers in the early 1900's cut into the sides to place their springboards. The trees surrounding the property today are mostly fir and alder. The 16'x20' cabin sits tucked back against the forest, looking out with territorial forest and mountain views of the Cascades. Outside you'll find a firepit with chairs and a picnic table for your enjoyment. Off to the side you'll also find our tidy and clean-smelling outhouse. Inside the cabin you'll be surprised at the roominess and open feel given the cabin's dimensions. A counter with sink hides all of your plates, utensils, pots and pans. An L-shaped dining nook seats 3-4 comfortably. Across the room you'll find wonderful wood-stove for those chilly nights, and a pull-out sofa to relax on. A wide ladder leads up to the sleeping loft where you'll find a double -sized (full) futon bed tucked under the window looking out toward the mountains. Given the cabin's size, it is best-suited for couples - though it is possible to sleep 4 with the pull-out sofa. There is a nice flat tent-site at the cabin as well. Maximum occupancy is 4 guests at the property at any time. Please note, this is an OFF-GRID cabin with NO ELECTRICITY or RUNNING WATER. You're welcome to bring a portable generator to plug into our lighting system. In the Spring/Summer we have a rain barrel that may provide limited water to the sink for washing only, NOT for drinking.Our cabin is located just over an hour from Seattle with easy access in Spring, Summer, and Fall. From November to March there is usually snow on the ground, so the last 200 yards off the main road would only be accessible by snowshoes or by foot. The area is beautiful with lots of trees, greenery, and wildlife. Explore the Forest Service roads nearby, or take one of the many hikes in the area. Fishing can be fantastic on the Skykomish river, or any of it's nearby tributaries. Steven's Pass Ski area is 30 minutes away - great for winter skiing/boarding or mountain biking in the summer! For longer stays, pop over to Leavenworth (1.5 hours east) for a Bavarian-themed experience - don't miss the brats and beer!

Charming little cabin!
Great little cabin! The property was perfectly equipped and charming. It was nice and secluded but also had river access options along the forest service road.

Very cute and comfortable lil cabin
My husband and I (and pup) recently had the pleasure of staying at The Little Cabin in the Woods and had a great time! Josh provided detailed directions and details. The cabin itself was a hidden little gem tucked away in the woods, but not far from home at all! Thank you, Josh, for sharing your slice of the pnw with us—we’ll definitely be back!

Josh’s cabin in the woods was quaint and quiet. Don’t be deterred by the lack of electricity, bringing in your own water or outhouse. This property was comfortable for a one night stay or more. Cozy wood burning stove and plenty of privacy!

A+ Rustic Glamping
I was looking for a rustic glamping spot and this PERFECTLY fit the bill - all the fun parts of camping without having to pop a tent! I was a little nervous about finding the place, but the instructions are quite thorough and I found it no problem. The cabin is nestled amongst a ton of trees but with a big clearing to star gaze. The fire pit is the perfect size and a grate for outdoor cooking. Inside the cabin there are some twinkle lights, but they are tied to a solar panel and I wasn't sure how to change the settings on. No worry here though - we brought our own and battery packs and were set! The cabin was comfortably cool even though it was quite warm during the day. At night when it cooled off, the indoor fireplace is cozy and really warms up the space. The bed isn't very comfortable, but not unbearable. Remember to bring a headlamp or lantern for the walk to the outhouse! While outside, we heard very few cars on the road nearby and the faint rumbling of the train every once in a while. Inside the cabin it is very quiet though! We really enjoyed our time in the cabin and can't wait to come back again. It's close to many great hikes and just a generally peaceful place to spend a weekend!
