Why the Owner Chose Mount Baker: : Glacier is a beautiful and peaceful place with lots of things to do. We chose Glacier and The Mt. Baker area because of its beauty, the awesome mountains, incredible scenic views around and the four seasons for year-round activities. Glacier is a wonderful small town, with friendly people, two great restaurants (Graham's and Milano's) and a world class ski and snowboard resort just 15 minutes away. We enjoy hikes, scenic drives and local events. We are close to the necessities of life, but yet away from the hustle & bustle. The city of Bellingham is just 40 minutes away. It is a step back in time when life was simpler. We came for a visit, fell in love with the area and decided to own a part of the experience and area forever. Now we want to share it with everyone! The Unique Benefits at this Cabin: Lots of relaxing, great walks, hikes and recreation in the summer, fantastic skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Then after the day activities soak in the hot tub on the private deck.
Owner Description/Comments:: Thanks for viewing our cabin. My name is JR Falkenhagen and my wife Lisa Falkenhagen have owned our cabin in the Glacier, Washington and the Mt Baker area since October of 2006. Lisa and I married on Kapalua Beach in Maui, Hawaii in February of 2002 and just recently celebrated our 18th year together (married for 11 great years). We take a lot of pride in our cabin ownership and work very hard to make sure that our vacation cabin is your home away from home. You should experience all the comforts of home at this fantastic getaway. We have two beautiful children (Kenzie 8 years of age and Cole 4). We currently live in a North Seattle suburb named Lake Forest Park. We fell in love with this area after Lisa's brother and sister-in-law (Brent & Becca Cole) introduced us to the area and all it has to offer as they are very involved with the local community.
Owner Description/Comments Continued: I work as an Digital Solutions Consultant for a Seattle based digital marketing company named Cobalt that serves the automobile industry. We spend most of our free time together with our friends and family. In addition, we enjoy working in our yard and garden. I like to spend any of my additional time playing as much golf as I can. At the end of the day our goal is to provide an affordable getaway for anyone to enjoy a break from reality to relax in a tranquil, peaceful and clean environment to disconnect from the crazy world we live in and recharge your batteries. Thanks for taking the time to get to know us and we hope you enjoy your stay with our home away from home.

Awesome cabin, good value
Awesome cabin, good value
We were more than pleased with the great 2 br plus loft cabin. It is well decked out with everything you will need, and is bright, clean and comfortable. There were only us 2 adults, and 2 small kids, who immediatelty made themselves at home. They had a ball. The new bed matresses are very comfortable. The hot tub and BBQ were great features, and worked great. The hot tub was particularly good for the aching muscles from skiing. We had three glorious weather days for skiing Baker, and we enjoyed it very much. As with other reviews here, we enjoyed the gas fireplace very much. We were sorry we did not bring our kids bicycles, and the gated community and strict speed limits make for very safe riding for kids. The information given to us before heading there prepared us very well for what it would be like. Thanks so much, and we hope to return some time...and it will be for longer than 3 days.

Great Cabin for families!
Great Cabin for families!
We stayed here for three nights in March for a family ski getaway. We had a great time, and were lucky to have 2 clear beautiful days of skiing with wonderful snow and no lift lines! There were six of us and 3 generations, with 4 adults and 2 children. The 2 bedrooms and loft accommodated our group very well, with the grandparents in the first floor bedroom, and the parents in the upstairs bedroom with the kids in the adjoining loft area futon. This would be nice accomodations for 2 couples, but awkward for 3 couples, with one couple using the loft futon. However, it works great for families. The kitchen was well equipped and everyone enjoyed the hot tub after skiing. One suggestion for winter visiters: bring warm slippers to wear downstairs on the wood floors. The cabin is well situated in a gated community, with woodland views from the windows.

Great little getaway
Great little getaway
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful weekend getaway at this great cabin in the woods. The cabin was clean and well appointed with just the right amount of amenities and necessities. We throughly enjoyed the hot tub and basically just relaxed and watched movies the whole time. It was just nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of our regular lives. We are thinking of coming up again soon, maybe next time with some friends as there are bedrooms both upstairs and downstairs, plus a loft than can sleep a couple more. The only thing we would recommend is adding a salt and pepper shaker (unless we just didn't see it). We went out on Friday to Cloud 9 Pizza, nice place to go, but stayed in and cooked on Saturday. A broiler pan would have been nice for our steak since it was pouring outside which prevented us from using the BBQ. More complete instructions for the remotes and the Direct TV box would have been nice as well, but I figured it out after a few minutes. One last thing....BE CAREFUL... the hardwood floors can be slippery! All in all we had a great time and would definitely recommend!

Thank you for providing a great place to stay!
I just wanted to let you know we checked-out of your cabin this morning and are now back home, and we had a very enjoyable time on our short skiing vacation to Mt. Baker! We really loved staying at your cabin and my kids had three great days on the mountain! I had one short day before falling on my tailbone and doing some major damage - ack! snowboarding at my age is getting tougher on my body! I am sure we will be back again and look forward to renting your cabin when we return. Thank you for providing a great place to stay at a very reasonable price! My kids just loved sleeping in the loft and we made great use of the hot tub!!

great location, fair pricing!
great location, fair pricing!
The cabin was in a great location, with easy access to the Mount Baker skiing area which was the main reason for our trip. My GF and I really enjoyed the cabin and amenities that it had to offer. Overall, the cabin was in good shape, clean, and stocked with all the necessary supplies for cooking. Couple issues with our stay, on arrival the heater in the main living area wasn't working (correct fairly quickly with a phone call to the owner) appears it's a common issue with the unit. Other issue was the beds in the cabin.. and this one is almost expected... they were worn out and sagging in the middle which for 2 nights, they did the trick but worth noting. at the end of the day i'd have to say this place was well worth the stop and made our trip fairly comfortable! forgot to mention the Hot Tub was in good working order and a very nice feature!

Owner response: Thank you for your response and your comments. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Yes, the Mt. Baker Rim Community Club is one of the last vacation cabin communities before you make your way up to the mountain so it makes for a shorter drive up to the mountain which is very convenient. Our property manager maintains our hot tub on a very strict schedule and is always a nice addition to the vacation experience to soak in after a fun day hiking, skiing, snowboarding, biking, etc. Out kitchen has a lot of stuff and we stock it to have most items from home so you can easily cook nice meals at the cabin. We had our property manager take a look at both beds and we have decided to go ahead and replace them both. We purchased (2) Sealy Posturepedic Plush Top King beds. These are VERY comfortable beds! We hope you will stay again with us in the future.
Nice Weekend Escape
Nice Weekend Escape
My family and I just returned from this cabin after a long President's Day weekend stay. We found the cabin very clean and in a quiet location. Close proximity to Mount Baker skiing was nice after a long couple of days on the slopes. The hot tub, satellite TV, warm fireplace and washer/dryer were nice amenities. My only complaint is the mattress in the upstairs bedroom- it's a bit broken down in the center, so I didn't sleep well the first night. Other than that, I would definitely return, and I would also recommend the cabin to family/friends.

We loved staying at your cabin! liked the gas fireplace and hot tub. Everything was very clean and organized. I feel bad mentioned it but the bedroom upstairs could use a new mattress, I was kinda sinking into the middle. My friend feels the hot tub water could have been cleaner. We really loved the location and snowboarding at Baker was amazing! Thank you so much! I'm already planning my next stay!

A perfect mountain getaway
A perfect mountain getaway
This cabin is just as portrayed in the pictures and description given. No frills but very comfortable. It is cozy and convenient to mountain play as well as a couple of restaurants and mini marts. The hot tub is a wonderful "extra" and the loft with it's own bathroom was a great area for the kids to call their own.

Owner response: We LOVE the loft area for the exact same reason (kids). It lends itself as a private getaway for the little ones. Our kids love playing up there which is nice when the parents want to hang out downstairs and chill. Thank you for your response and your comments. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. We hope you will stay again with us in the future.
Great cabin we didn't want to leave. It would've been great if more snow but went up to the mountain about 40mins drive for that. Great space, 3 beds upstairs with shower, 1 downstairs with shower, kitchen has enough to cook basics, this is not a chef's kitchen, no sugar/salt/peper (bring your own). We had to clean the bbq a bit but it did the trick; very slippery back patio and no lighting was a bit of a hastle making our way around that bbq (we actually burned our stakes, incredible how a bit of wine can change that taste), jacuzzi is a great way to relax , very quiet area did not see too many people, nice little neighbourhood although it can seem a bit booring if you like people around, all in all a nice spot. A bit of a hastle with the garbage as there are no containers and you always have to drive up to the clubhouse to drop it off. Clean cabin though, at no point did i feel weird about other people having used the stuff (bed sheets, washroom, kitchen). The dish worked, showers always had hot water must have a great boiler, although room temperature felt sometimes just a bit cold that fireplace warms things up quickly. Enjoy...

Owner response: Thank you for your response and your comments. We always appreciate feedback from our guests. Yeah, if you need seasonings and such for cooking we typically do not provide these. We do have guests leave these items behind sometimes, but if you think you need something for cooking I would suggest you bring some items as back-up if there is something special you need. If you are looking to stay at our cabin and you have questions about what we have at the kitchen you can always reach me via the VRBO site. We are happy to give you direction. Mt. Baker Rim where our cabin is at is a nice quiet cabin community that is very clean. I will look into getting a garbage can where you can consolidate garbage to reduce trips to the clubhouse garbage area (good suggestion). I will also have our property manager look at power washing the decks and address the BBQ. We hope you will stay again with us in the future.

"Nooksack Falls is a waterfall along the North Fork of the Nooksack River in Whatcom County, Washington. The water flows through a narrow valley and drops freely 88 feet into a deep rocky river canyon. The falls are viewable from the forested cover near the cliffs edge. The falls are a short 2/3 of a mile drive off the Mount Baker Highway, Washington State Highway 542. The falls were featured in the hunting scene of the movie The Deer Hunter"...MoreCollapse
"Heather and huckleberry meadows dot the majestic landscape at Heather Meadows near the eastern end of the Mount Baker Scenic Byway, Washington State Route 542. Glistening lakes nestle between knolls. Ridges bristle with 900-year-old mountain hemlock. Even the rocks catch the eye. Lava flows from Mount Baker have resisted glacial carving and columns of andesite stand like black anvils against the sky. Interpretive signs along the Picture Lake, Fire and Ice and Artist Ridge Trails enhance the story behind this spectacular scenery. The historical Heather Meadows Visitor Center exhibits offer a glimpse into the area’s colorful cultural history. The center and area trails are open during the summer season after accumulated winter snows melt out. During winter months snow-covered slopes offer opportunities for skiing and snowboarding at the popular Mt. Baker Ski Area located in Heather Meadows. Snow-covered trails outside of the ski area boundaries are not maintained or controlled for avalanches."...MoreCollapse
"The Nooksack River is a river in the northwest part of the U.S. state of Washington. It drains an area of the Cascade Range around Mount Baker, near the Canadian border. The lower river flows through a fertile agricultural area before emptying into Bellingham Bay and, via the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Strait of Georgia, the Pacific Ocean. The river begins in three main forks, the North Fork, Middle Fork, and South Fork. The North Fork is sometimes considered the main river. Including the North Fork, the Nooksack is approximately 75 miles (121 km) long. All three forks originate in the Mount Baker Wilderness."...MoreCollapse
"Artist Point is located at the very end of Mount Baker Highway, State Route 542 and boasts 360-degree views of Mount Shuksan and Mount Baker, as well as access to a variety of trails. The road to Artist Point, 2.7 miles long (milepost 54.55 to 57.26) and more than 5,000 feet above sea level, is typically buried under snow and closed October through June. Artist Point typically opens in July and remains open until the first substantial snowfall of the year, which usually comes in late September or early October."...MoreCollapse
Galena Chain Lakes
"Loop trip nirvana in the North Cascades! Picturesque alpine lakes, gorgeous open ridges, constantly changing views of Mount Baker and Shuksan and mountain wildlfowers dominate this hike. You can do a loop trip described here, out-and-back, or short loops - choices abound (but do stay on established trails only). From the Bagley Lakes trailhead, follow the trail to the Bagley Lakes. Admire Table Mountain, and how it plunges straight into the lakes. Continue right for the Chain Lakes, climbing to Herman Saddle. The views here are stupendous! Now drop into the Chain Lakes. The first (and largest) is Iceberg Lake. You may encounter snowfields in this section well into late summer, and sometimes these never melt out. Be prepared. At Iceberg Lake, you can take a small side trail to Arbuthnet and Hayes Lakes, or you can continue on to picturesque little Mazama Lake. Climbing out of the Chain Lakes Basin, you will reach a pass between Table Mountain and Ptarmigan Ridge. Go to the left for about a mile until you reach the Artist Point parking lot (this is also a good place to start your hike). The Wild Goose Trail will take you back to your car without requiring you to walk the road (that is, if you're there after the snow melts)."...MoreCollapse
"Intimate ice is what this hike is all about. Follow a well-trodden path to the scoured world of the Coleman Glacier, the largest of Baker's dozen-plus glaciers. From along a steep heap of lateral moraine, stare down into a cavernous abyss of ice and compacted snow. Locate blue grottos in the crevasses of Baker's frozen icing. Come in July for the lilies, September for the berries, October for the quiet, but don't try this hike early in the season. The creeks are unbridged and are difficult enough to negotiate in dry periods. After your initial shock at the size of the parking lot (this trail is the beginning of a popular climbing route too), enter cool hemlock forest and immediately drop to cross Grouse Creek, on a bridge thankfully. Now in the Mount Baker Wilderness (how many party-size violations can you spot?), the well-beaten path steadily climbs a bit before easing off. Encounter the first of three cascading creeks that must be crossed, all sans pont. The second one is the most difficult. Trekking poles come in handy. The trail picks up the pace, once more steeply climbing, now alongside Kulshan Creek. The forest thins, revealing teaser views. At 2 miles pass a backcountry campsite (elev. 4700 ft), the former site of the Kulshan Cabin, a structure built in 1925 by the Mount Baker Club and used until the 1980s. Soon afterward, come to a junction. Take the trail left; the trail right is a climbers route. As you travel through stunted evergreens, the incredible hulking Baker makes its presence known. Soon encounter the first of two challenging (potentially dangerous) crossings of braided Heliotrope Creek. Plan on getting your feet wet in icy-cold, rapidly moving waters. Be aware, too, that if it's a hot day your return will be even more difficult because of melting snows from above. Once safely across, proceed through marmot-enhanced meadows to the hemlock-lined edge of Coleman's lateral moraine. Wow! Right below you, snaked out like an oversized ice-cream cone on its side, a massive glacier! Continue on scant path, climbing alongside the glacier up the moraine-using care and staying away from the edge-to a 5550-foot ledgy knoll. Sit here in awe, gazing at the icy intricacies of the glacier. Rippled crevasses. Blue pools. Frozen portals. Be sure to look out at the alpine world around you too: Bastile Ridge just across the glacier, Golden Ears Mountain just across the border. And if you're wondering just what the heck a heliotrope is-it's a flower, one not native to the area. But early surveyors thought the native valerians looked awfully close."...MoreCollapse
"With miles of flower- saturated meadows along a rolling lofty ridge radiating from the big volcano itself, Skyline Divide is one of Baker's best offerings to the hiking community. While the views are supreme-from the snowy peaks of British Columbia to the salty waters of Puget Sound-you'll struggle keeping your eyes off of what the area's first peoples called Koma Kulshan, "the Great White One." A popular place on a summer weekend, Skyline provides enough nooks and crannies to spread out. And while this hike is 4.5 miles long, feel free to quit anytime after 2 miles-there's no shortage of views along the way. Without delay, begin climbing in a beautiful stand of mature silver fir. The trail is wide and firm; many a boot has walked this way. As you toil up and up, steeply at times, let the anticipation of alpine rapture carry you to the ridge crest. Approaching timberline, the trail passes into the Mount Baker Wilderness. At 2 miles clutch your heart and prepare for visual attack as the trail emerges onto a grassy knoll (elev. 5900 ft), unfurling a backdrop of the Great White One, surrounded by some pretty darn nice ones. Roam the knoll. Look out to Shuksan, Ruth, Table, Goat, Winchester, and of course, Koma Kulshan. Be sure to smell the flowers too. Lupine, harebell, bistort, valerian, daisy, and aster make bountiful bouquets beside your boots. But it gets better, so carry on. Drop a little into a small saddle, a little up and down, and then sidehill around the next knoll, coming to a flat where Baker poses ever so majestically for your memory card to capture. Climb the 6215-foot knoll or continue on the ridge. With Baker now breathing upon you and bearing a slight resemblance to Rainier from this angle, come to an unmarked junction at 3.5 miles in a small saddle (elev. 6000 ft). The trail left continues for 1 mile, dropping a couple hundred feet into a wild peaceful basin. The trail right continues on a rougher route along the divide, climbing higher. Over ledge and through krummholz and heather, work your way up to yet another knoll, number six if you're keeping track, and call it quits upon this 6563-foot gem. Beyond to Chowder Ridge is strictly for climbers and goats. Look at all those mountains! The Cheam Range, Golden Ears, and McGuire in Canada, the High Divide and company in front of them. East is Yellow Aster Butte, Shuksan, and a slew of craggy goliaths. The Black Buttes and Twin Sisters are to the south, and the Olympics and San Juan Islands lie to the west. Simply amazing!"...MoreCollapse

"The dramatic andesite plateau of Table Mountain is one of the first mountains you see entering the Heather Meadows area. The hike starts at picturesque Artist Point, and after a short but steep traverse up the southeast face of Table Mountain, you emerge onto the plateau of the mountaintop. On a clear day take in fantastic views of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan and other magnificent peaks in the North Cascades. The trail heads west across the plateau but does not provide a descent off the other side of the mountain; hikers must return the same way they came up. No pets are allowed on the Table Mountain Trail."...MoreCollapse
"All congregants of nature are invited to attend this Church. But hallelujah, it's a tough calling! While the trail is built well, it switchbacks like there's no tomorrow. The scenery is heavenly, but with over 3700 vertical feet to climb there's a little hell to pay on the way. It's worth the sacrifice, though. From the old lookout site just beneath Church Mountain's impressive steeple-like summit, a promised land of North Cascades beauty abounds. Start off easy enough on an old road turned delightful trail. But after an easy 0.5 mile of minimal elevation gain, ascending begins with a vengeance. At least the old-growth canopy makes prospects for overheating minimal. Occasional holes in the green cloak reveal the North Fork Nooksack River roaring below. Traversing southern slopes, the lower half of this trail often melts out by late spring. By late summer however, it can be quite dry-pack plenty of water. At 2.5 miles, after seemingly endless climbing, the grade eases up and the forest cover thins. At 3 miles emerge into an open basin (elev. 4800 ft) beneath Church's spires. Meadows! Wildflowers! Look at them all - paintbrush, buttercup, columbine, violets, lousewort, saxifrage, stonecrop, cinquefoil, lupine, penstemon, lilies, asters, bistort, and valerian. Soon the trail crosses Deer Horn Creek in a boggy orchid-strewn swale. Then it's back to business. In heather parklands and steep meadowy slopes, the trail works its way out of the basin. Be careful here, as the trail is subject to slumping. Making a long switchback, the trail enters a small rocky upper basin where snow often lingers into August. Just beneath the craggy ridge crest, the trail heads west to angle under and up and over some rocky sections. Pass the ruins of a shed and an old precariously placed privy before making the final push to a 6100-foot knoll. Just beneath Church's summit spires (reserved for climbers and angels), this airy point (keep children, dogs, and the vertigo-inclined nearby) was once blessed with a fire lookout. The views, however, remain-and they're divine. Look south to Shuksan, Baker and the Skyline Divide, the Twin Sisters, and all the way to Rainier; west to the San Juans; and east across the verdant and craggy High Divide. North it's Canyon Ridge, big beautiful British Columbia, and straight below, in a snowbound basin, the Kidney Lakes."...MoreCollapse
Yellow Aster Butte
"Find supreme wildflower gardens and a high-country plateau speckled with shimmering tarns-but that's not all. Spectacular alpine vistas abound too-of Baker, Shuksan, and all those rugged and craggy peaks straddling the 49th parallel. Yellow Aster Butte may be a misnomer (those yellow-petaled delights are actually daisies), but you definitely don't want to miss hiking here. Sharing a start with the Tomyhoi Lake Trail, begin on a steep course alternating between cool old-growth forest and warm brushy avalanche slopes. Views out to Goat Mountain and big ol' Baker aren't bad from the brushy openings. Shortly after entering the Mount Baker Wilderness, the grade thankfully eases up. The tread remains excellent, the result of a lot of volunteer work over the years on this heavily traveled trail. The way soon breaks out into a basin bursting with berry patches. Do this hike in September and you're sure to be caught red handed (and mouthed) partaking in gluttonous behavior. But these antioxidants sure make a better choice than chips! In 1.4 miles come to a junction (elev. 5150 ft) with the Tomyhoi Lake Trail. Head left for Yellow Aster on trail constructed in the 1990s that replaced the deeply eroded (but beloved by many) Keep Kool Trail. Slab around the basin on a fairly level course, flushing rodents, birds, and perhaps a weary hiker or two out of the bountiful berry patches. As you round the basin, Mount Shuksan reveals her beauty. Baker flaunts his as well from across Austin Pass. After moderate climbing across boulder-strewn heather meadows, the trail drops about 100 feet into a snow-harboring basin. Showy penstemon and monkey flowers spruce up the stark gulch with touches of purple and gold. Climb more steeply, now, rounding Yellow Aster's south shoulder. Catch your breath-not from altitude, but from multitude-a beautiful multitude of peaks, ridges, and tarns spread out before you. At 3.5 miles reach a junction on a ledge overlooking the glacier-scoured tarnished plateau below. Head left, dropping about 200 feet to explore this water-pocked pocket; or take the way trail right, steeply climbing 400 feet in 0.25 mile to ascend the butte. From this 6150-foot promontory, look out over an amazing landscape of emerald ridges, verdant valleys, snow-capped spires, and glacier-clad giants. Winchester, Larrabee, American Border, and Canadian Border peaks are particularly striking. So too is Tomyhoi, the big broad behemoth dominating the north viewscape."...MoreCollapse

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Thanks for viewing our cabin. My name is JR Falkenhagen and my wife have owned our cabin in the Glacier, Washington and the Mt Baker area since October of 2006. We take a lot of pride in our cabin ownership and work very hard to make sure that our vacation cabin is your home away from home. You should experience all the comforts of home at this fantastic getaway. We fell in love with this area after our family introduced us to the area and all it has to offer. We spend most of our free time together with our friends and family. In addition, we enjoy working in our yard and garden. I like to spend any of my additional time playing as much golf as I can. At the end of the day our goal is to provide an affordable getaway for anyone to enjoy a break from reality to relax in a tranquil, peaceful and clean environment to disconnect from the crazy world we live in and recharge your batteries. Thanks for taking the time to get to know us and we hope you enjoy your stay with our home away from home.
Why the Owner Chose Mount Baker:
Glacier is a beautiful and peaceful place with lots of things to do. We chose Glacier and The Mt. Baker area because of its beauty, the awesome mountains, incredible scenic views around and the four seasons for year-round activities. Glacier is a wonderful small town, with friendly people, two great restaurants (Graham's and Milano's) and a world class ski and snowboard resort just 20 minutes away. We enjoy hikes, scenic drives and local events. We are close to the necessities of life, but yet away from the hustle & bustle. The city of Bellingham is just 40 minutes away. It is a step back in time when life was simpler. We came for a visit, fell in love with the area and decided to own a part of the experience and area forever. Now we want to share it with everyone!
