Wow. It was our first time using Hipcamp and our first stay at the Cedar River Retreat and everything more than met our expectations. Brittany was a great host, super responsive before and during our trip, and it was really clear she wanted to make sure we had a great time. This is an excellent choice for families, especially during COVID times. We just went for an overnight as we wanted a break from the city and were pleasantly surprised that in a 35 minute drive from Seattle, we really felt like we were in the outdoors. We have two school aged children and went with another family who have two school aged children and everyone had a great time. We stayed in the cabin and the other family stayed in the tent right outside the cabin. There was more than plenty of room outside for everyone to socialize and sit by the fire pit, play ball, ride bikes, read, and very easy to practice social distancing. Had it not been COVID times, while small, both families could have stayed in the cabin with a kid or two on the floor. The cabin is rustic. It doesn't have electricity but there were a ton of solar and battery operated lamps. However, it was spotless and besides the beds it even has a little reading nook which we enjoyed when it was pouring rain. There were lot of little amenities on hand from extra camp chairs to a stove, mugs, a heater, and even bug spray which made it super easy to not have to pack up as much gear. There also is a little covered area outside. We set up Brittany's foldable table under the covered area and used it to eat and play board games. We were wondering about the toilet situation but it was much better than we anticipated. Brittany has built a little covered area for it with a curtain (much like an outhouse) and while it took the kids (and one or two adults) a moment or two to get used to, it was just fine and clean up was super easy--no worse than cleaning up after a pet. There was another party staying on the grounds as well but we never saw or heard them. It was quite quiet (you can see the Cedar River Trail from the site and every once and a while heard someone talking from the trail but compared to staying at a public campground which was our initial plan, this was SO much more private). It was super fast to walk to the trail from the campsite. We also felt super safe as there is a locked gate to the area. There also seems to be a lot to do in the area (Brittany had a book with suggestions) and we for sure would come back and do more exploring when the weather is nicer. We will certainly come back again.

We had a great time staying at this cabin. The Cedar River trail is really close and our dog really enjoyed getting to take his walk along it.

We stayed here July 2nd so there were several fireworks being set off which scared our dog, but the cabin was well insulated enough that when we closed the windows and curtains we barely heard them. The cabin itself is really cozy with plenty of lanterns to completely light it up at night. We slept great.

We really enjoyed relaxing around the fire pit in the two person camping chair, and we'd love to stay here again.

We loved our stay! It was a perfect nature getaway. The cabin is cute and you can tell Brittany wants her guests to feel welcome. She provides a binder with activities. We ended up going to one of her suggestions and had a great time! The beds are comfortable and the reading nook is a perfect place to relax and unwind. A heater is provided but fortunately we didn’t need it and even slept with the windows open.

The space outside the cabin is huge! Enough to fit 2 other tents and 5 vehicles while the kids and dogs are still able to run around and have a good time. The fire pit was a huge hit as well. Perfect for all the s’mores you can eat! The firewood bundles on the property was convenient. There’s also a folding table provided to put all your food and a picnic table to enjoy the food!

The lugaloo wasn’t too bad. Brittany added a cute shower curtain to make it feel more “luxurious” (exact words from one of our party!)

We would stay again!

Cute cabin that was great for a quick getaway from Seattle with my dog. She loved running around outside and it was nice to have a campfire in the evening. Brittany, the host, was quite good about communicating helpful details ahead of time and was responsive via text.

A perfect cabin getaway! The site had a decent amount of shade to keep the cabin cool during the hot days we stayed there, mega bonus for us! The cedar trail is in eye sight of the camp spot and the camp spot is fully visible from the trail, but that did not bother us! We enjoyed taking our dogs on a walk up and down the trail. The river is close, about a 5-10 min walk depending on where you want to enter the river. There are plenty of solar lights to light up the cabin at night, along with the outdoor bathroom. Loved the covered picnic table! The hosts really thought this layout through well 🙏 we will camp here often!

Spent a Saturday at the cabin with my 6 year old son, who is just getting into camping.

Really enjoyed the amount of open space around the cabin - plenty of room for a couple of vehicles and a tent if two families wanted to camp together. Hike to Fred V. Habenicht Rotary Park was about 2.25 miles along the Cedar River Trial. Very flat with a few cool bridges along the way; a great way to stretch our legs in the afternoon.

Cabin and outhouse were both clean and well-maintained. Bunk bed was very comfortable. I think the upper loft sleeping area might cause claustrophobia for some people, but we didn't use it, so not an issue for us.

Very convenient to have firewood for sale on-site; saved us a trip to the grocery store. Plenty of outdoor seating, with a picnic table, log rounds AND camp chairs provided. I also appreciated having a cooking platform, separate from the picnic table, to setup my camp kitchen.

Maybe just lucky with the weather/season, but was pleasantly surprised (shocked, honestly!) by the lack of insects as the evening progressed into campfire time.

Overall, extremely impressed with our first Hipcamp experience. I could see this being a place for us to come back to again with my wife and daughter for a whole family trip.

I rented the cabin for my son and grandkids to stay in and they all though it was great. I also rented the other site for my husband and I and my mom. The trail in between the two was perfect for visiting. But also allowed us privacy.
