Stevens Pass cabin description

Wild Lily is just about as majestic a Northwest retreat as one could imagine. This serene escape into nature lies on the banks of the north fork of the Skykomish River, just outside of the town of Index, amongst towering old growth cedar and fir trees. Consisting of a main lodge, two log guest cabins, a bathhouse with sauna, and an enormous outdoor hot tub all centered around a common campfire, this quintessential Northwest getaway radiates charm. Lighted trails wind visitors around the property, across riverbeds and eventually to a sandy beach surrounded by towering granite Cascade peaks.

Enter the Wild Lily Main house and you immediately feel enveloped by the cozy surroundings: wood floors, river rock fireplace, leather furniture, and large picture windows framing the beautiful view. Cozy up on the wrap-around sofa and enjoy complementary Netflix streamed movies on the 39' flat screen LED TV by the cracking fire. The newly remodeled gourmet kitchen features quartz countertops, stainless appliances, breakfast bar, and is fully stocked with everything you'll need to prepare you favorite meals. Surrounded by windows, the family style 12 person custom dining table with cozy booth seating is a perfect place to gather for long meals and create lasting memories. The main floor also includes a full bathroom with antique claw foot tub and a den with comfy futon. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with extra sleeping nook, a loft with full size bed and sitting area beneath skylights that peer out over the canyon and towering Cascade peaks.

The property has two hand crafted guest cabins; the Lily Pad and Eagles Nest, each with a wood burning stove, covered front porch and charming log construction. The cabins provide additional cozy and rustic accommodations with ideal privacy. The Lily Pad, which is the larger of the two, has a queen size bed in the loft (accessible by ladder) and a comfortable full size convertible sofa on the main floor. Eagles Nest which boasts one of the best views on the property, offers a queen size bed in the loft (also accessible by ladder) and comfy sitting area below.

Other property features include a large 8 person hot tub that overlooks the canyon, relaxing hammock suspended amongst towering old growth firs and cedars, central camp fire ideal for roasting marshmallows and sharing tales of Sasquatch sightings, and the bathhouse with large double headed shower, outdoor shower and sauna. The river trail leads guests across a dry river bank to an island with sandy beach where guests enjoy the spectacular view of the Index rock wall, Mt Perseus and Mt index.

                            We just returned from a long weekend at Wild Lily Cabins and could not be happier with our experience. Beautiful main cabin with two additional cabins on the property. The care and attention that have gone into the amenities here are truly apparent. Only an hour from Seattle with so much to do in the area. We drove the additional hour to Leavenworth on Saturday, went on a guided river rafting adventure on Sunday with the Outdoor Adventure Company (just 1 minute away from the cabin) in downtown Index, and explored all the outdoor beauty that Index and Skykomish have to offer. Thank you again!

                            We just got home from our weekend at Stevens and I wanted to thank you again for your hospitality. We had a wonderful stay at Little Cabin and were so pleased with Wild Lily! You have such a gorgeous piece of property with beautifully created and maintained cabins. I slept like a rock in the cozy loft bed listening to the river rush by. We wish you well and appreciate everything. :)

                            My husband and I along with another couple were looking for our first Cascade's getaway and were a little skeptical about what we would end up with. We found Wily Lily and thought it looked wonderful; we were certainly not disappointed! The cabin was cozy and well appointed (we especially appreciated the filtered water) and with all the cooking we did we were glad everything in the kitchen was easily located and accessible. The hot tub was fantastic and the little beach area by the river was an unexpected surprise. We spent a good part of one day hanging out there reading and relaxing. And on the last night we got to enjoy a nice fire in the living room. We'd love to go back someday.

                          Year Purchased: 2013

                          About: Mysty Mountain Properties purchased this property in October 2013. Wild Lily Ranch was established in 1990 by dancer, gemologist, and chainsaw carpenter Mike O’Neil, who 'built his lodge and two guest cabins without cutting down any more trees than he had to,' according to a 2004 Seattle Times article. Mike was a lover of nature and a gracious host to all: “He was an equal opportunity innkeeper. People liked him and he liked them back.” A true craftsman, Mike spent 14 years building and expanding Wild Lily. From custom stained glass windows to a river rock fireplace inlaid with hand cut agates to log carvings and accents, Mike’s craft and spirit emanates throughout the property. When Mike “Magic Man” O’Neil passed away in 2004 at age 60 from cancer, the future of Wild Lily Ranch was uncertain. By a matter of sheer coincidence and serendipity, Wild Lily fell into the lap of its second owners, Joe Puchot and Barak Gale. Joe and Barak had visited Wild Lily in August of 2003, before Mike’s passing, while some friends of theirs were staying as guests at the B&B. Avid hikers and Northwest outdoor enthusiasts, Joe and Barak were instant fans of Wild Lily’s magical charm. It was not until six months later that Joe and Barak, who were in the market to buy a piece of waterfront property somewhere in Washington, were randomly sent a listing advertising the sale of the Wild Lily property by a real estate agent. Even though they had never dreamed of owning or running a Bed and Breakfast, they were so inspired by the property that they decided to buy it and keep the legacy alive. This past August, nine years after Wild Lily changed ownership, Joe and Barak decided it was time to pursue their dreams of exploring more of the country’s natural beauty. It was time to sell. Having been aware of Mysty Mountain Properties by way of their reputation and involvement throughout the Sky Valley, The contacted Mysty Mountain’s owner, Dave Faigin… the rest was history!
