An historic 1890s mountainside homestead in the heart of Cascadia. Cabins and camping for those who love rustic adventure and a journey back in time. Originally plotted at 100 acres, the property and area remain largely unchanged, with very few neighbors and is backed up against the North Cascades wilderness and close to Mt. Baker, the Salish Sea, and so much more. The historic Nooksack Valley gold mine trail abuts the property and there is adventure and wildlife upon stepping out of your cabin or tent. Special attention has been paid to creating an authentic rustic experience that feels as old as the original buildings that still stand on the property. Many tree varieties, a creek with swimming hole and incredible view from the back of the property are just some of the features of this special place.
Worldclass mountain and river sports at nearby Mt Baker. For urban excursions, we are 20 minutes from Bellingham, 1 hour from Vancouver BC, and 1.5 hours from Seattle WA. So much to see and do in and around the area. Upon request we also offer guided interpretive hikes through the wilderness adjacent to the property.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This place was absolutely amazing! The cabin we stayed in was a perfect place to hang out and rest for the night. The host is extremely nice and knowledgeable about the land and history of the property! He showed us around all the cabins he has built out of reclaimed materials and told us of his future plans. It is just a short drive into town where you can grab some food and the surrounding areas are very beautiful. I definitely recommend going here! Can't wait to go back myself!
I took my dog up to this amazing spot for the weekend and we had a great time. Reg gave us the larger cabin, including a couple soft mats for my pup. This is a pretty magical property and it's only going to get better with their future plans.
I can't say enough about this place. Reg was a perfect host and understood my introverted nature and desire for isolation, but still made sure I knew my way around the property and amenities. I spent three nights in the tiny house/cabin with a view of the mountains and stars. I lucked out and was the only one renting out the place (it was during the week) and it was very peaceful. But even if there were others, my little cabin would be secluded and quiet. (There are three living spaces on the property- I chose the tiny house at the top of the property). During the day I hiked down to the creek, where there is a hammock set up under the cottonwood trees and wild salmon berry bushes. I wish I could spend every day there wading in the creek among the lava tubes and moss.
The shared washroom is cute and everything is made from reclaimed/recycled materials. Reg seems to be continuing to make the shared spaces even better, and I look forward to going back some day to see the progress on the kitchen and communal hangout area. He is also adding another cabin, which I look forward to seeing when finished.
Honestly my time there was a few of the best days I can remember in a long time. It made me consider leaving city life forever and moving into the mountains. I miss it already.
Reg was a great host with lots of helpful insight as to places to check out nearby, and the cabin was in perfect shape! Felt like one of the finest spots to stay north of Seattle and south of Canada. Would definitely recommend this site!
My bed was so comfortable. The big green chair in the cabin was the perfect place for late night reading. I love the washroom with the clawfoot tub, took a nice bath in there...so serene. The property has such a welcoming rustic feel. Reg is really a great host, super warm and generous. I look forward to visiting again and seeing how the plans are coming along. I recommend staying here for a nice peaceful respite, or for a jumping off point for exploring the area. Thanks for the lovely place to just be.
Beautiful, peaceful and welcoming place to stay.
Everything we needed was there - from linens to dishes and cooking supplies to bunnies and deer. The walks were lovely and the creek pristine.
Reg and Jesse were great hosts at this fun rustic Homestead :-)
It's a wonderful experience to wake up to nature from a log cabin. Here are some great hikes in the areas including a lusious forest up to 'gold mine trail'.
We had cosy beds and warm diners around a wood burning stove. Great conversations too. Highly recommend!
My husband and I stayed three nights and enjoyed a wonderful step back in time. Reg has worked hard to restore and build cabins and bathrooms for a comfortable nights stay. We were blessed with a power outage that had us using a wood stove and a candle that sent out magical dancing shadows. The wind blowing and ice forming on everything made it a one of a kind experience in the winter. If you want a place to spend your time in wonder this is it.
