The vibe at Sky Valley A-Frame
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Sky Valley A-Frame is the perfect basecamp for your favorite outdoor pursuits year-round, with easy access to hiking, rock climbing, rafting, skiing, and more in the surrounding Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
The cabin is full furnished with comfortable beds and couches, as well as a great fireplace to warm up next to during the colder months. Every window of the house boasts great views, particularly the bedroom's perfect framing of Mount Baring.
If you're unsure of where to start exploring, start with Lake Serene for hiking, and the town of Skykomish for a quick bite to eat.
Meredith was an amazing host and the A-Frame was both gorgeous the most place I've ever stayed and the coziest! When we got there it was easy to get in via a self-entry system, and she had plenty of helpful instructions, notes, and tour-guides for the neighboring towns. There was a great stock pile of firewood, and it was the perfect get away for the weekend. The river is minutes away and the drive from Seattle was nice and easy! Meredith was easy to communicate with both prior and during check in, and she was even able to assist when we stupidly locked ourselves out on a morning walk. Can't wait to stay again!
We picked this listing because of how close it was to our campsite and that we wouldn't be too far away from home. It was a very cute home. The host keeps it unbelievably clean and it is obviously a home with happy people in it, you can feel the energy. :)
The days we spent at the home were very warm, there is a heat wave going through Washington now and it was hard to cool down. Thankfully, there is plenty of shade on the property and the house managed to stay pretty cool downstairs. Plus, there is river access nearby that was gorgeous, and an easy walk from the home.
I bet this home would be a perfect spot for someone to stay if they wanted to have quick access to Steven's Pass in the winter.
There is a TV that can play DVDs, which would be perfect along with a cup of complementary hot cocoa or tea (amazing selection that the host has!).
The only thing that caught me off guard were the stairs up to the second floor, which are a very efficient use of space and sort of a cross between a ladder and a spiral staircase. My middle-aged, medium sized dog had a very hard time getting up and down the stairs, and if I had seen that before booking it, I am not sure that I would have stayed here.
That being said, if my husband and I ever get a dog sitter and are looking for a place close to whitewater rafting, hiking, sledding, or skiing, we will be back. :)
I bet this home is amazing in the winter, the trees in the backyard covered in snow would be beautiful, and cozying up to the fireplace with a book and a cup of tea sounds wonderful.
