Our mountain house, The Cedarstone Riverhouse, is located only an hour away from Seattle, but you feel like you are in a different world. Far away from the traffic, the noise, and the lights, you are in a peaceful mountain paradise. Our home offers an enclosed deck with a hot tub, so you feel like the river flowing through the back yard is all yours. The front yard offers spectacular mountain views.
The home is cozy and warm, and offers all the amenities that you would need to entertain yourself at home. We have a huge fireplace that heats the home very nicely, a gas fireplace for more instant heat and ambiance. Even the drive up the road offers amazing views, including Sunset Falls.
Once you are in Index, you are less than thirty minutes from Steven's Pass Ski Mountain. Steven's has some of the best skiing and snowboarding in Western Washington. You are also close to many snow shoeing trails. If you prefer summer sports, kayakers put their boats in at the end of our road to enjoy the beautiful Skykomish river. We are also close to Lake Serene and the Index Wall, which offers climbers a difficult and rewarding climb.
Our home has hard wood and cork floors throughout. A towel warmer is in the bathroom (a great treat in the morning). There is a king size bed in the master bedroom and a queen bed in the second bedroom. The couch is also incredibly comfortable. We have done everything we could to make our home comfortable, and the perfect escape from the city.

About the owner: As an outdoor enthusiast, Index is where I love to call home. I love to ski in the winter and hike and camp in the summer. I also love to travel and always enjoy visiting new places and discovering new things. In addition, I really enjoy working on my home and putting unique touches on things. I love antiques and I use as much antique as I can in my decorating.
Why the Owner Chose Index: I originally bought a cabin across the street in 1992. I completely fell in love with Index. The mountains and the river are so beautiful. I always felt at home when I was there. In 2005 the house across the street from my cabin came up for sale. I immediately bought it and set about updating it. Index is so close to all the things I love. It is twenty minutes from the ski slopes, five minutes from the Lake Serene hiking trail, and fifteen minutes from the Index Climbing wall.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our home has the most gorgeous view of the river from the kitchen and the living room. You can sit at the dining room table and watch the river flow by, or you can go out on the deck and watch the river from the hot tub. The front yard offer spectacular views of the mountains. The house comes equipped with a big screen HDTV, PlayStation 3, XBox, and a DVD player.
