Mount Baker cabin description

Ptarmigan Lodge at Mt Baker is Truly one of a kind! We built this cabin from the ground up. Exclusively using only wood cut and milled right on property, and built with the help of friends and family. There can only be one like it. Tucked between 200 foot tall evergreens and the Nooksack river gives you all the seclusion you need for your ultimate Private vacation getaway. Our cabin is both rustic and modern, combining hand crafted wood work with brand new furnishings & amenities. The 2 story cabin is 1800 sq ft of open floor plan. Full kitchen, dining area, living room with wood stove, master bedroom, bathroom, utility room, is all downstairs. Upstairs is a full loft with 4 single beds, and a futon. The loft has an authentic chair lift swing from Mt Baker, balcony, ping-pong table, Foosball table, stereo system, and Flat screen TV & Blu-ray DVD player. Outside living area we call our humaflage is 200 sq ft patio with wood stove, and adjacent fire ring. All over looking the Nooksack river.

The 5 acre property is set back off the road, down a 400 ft driveway. 200 ft tall standing timber dominants the upper portion. while a class 3 river and gravel bars dominate the lower portion. Its like two distinct environments woods and river. We have 350 feet of river front, which lead out to a vast wilderness area. Once down our drive way, seldom seen is another human being . You may see A occasional rafter or kayaker but only for a few minutes as they float by. Otherwise its you and Sasquatch.

The cabin is a log hybrid. A mix of whole cedar uprights and cross logs with douglas fir beams and lumber. The biggest beam is 16 x 14 & can be seen running the length of the down stairs . Cedar siding & trim. Maple floors down stairs with douglas fir floors upstairs.

The timber had to be cut to make room for the cabin. So we used it. Four douglas fir trees approx 125 years old. A dozen cedar trees the oldest 111 years is in the center of living room holding up the 2nd story. 50 foot long cedar logs are visible up stairs holding up the roof. Lastly a hand full of gnarly old maple we used for floors and fire wood. It came out great, it took three long yet wonderful years . All custom & hand crafted. We made the siding & trim as we went. The siding is laid out as it came off the log wild edge with matching knots. The railings came from cedar branches, we used it all to craft this beautifull cabin.


Now that it's all done, you can sit back and enjoy. There is nothing like warming up in a private outdoor hot tub after a long day of skiing, hiking, or rafting in the Mount Baker area. So come get away from it all, at your secluded private wilderness area.

We are truly blessed to have had the opportunity to build a cabin like this!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  Why the Owner Chose Mount Baker:
                  This is way more than we were looking for. We just wanted to be in glacier Wa, we love it there. We weren't having any luck finding what we liked in the neighborhoods. We were talked in to looking at this very raw property. Many told us it could not be done. We fell in love with it, and made it work. We were not let down. This is our wildest dream come true. I hope you love it as much as we do!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Wilderness area right in your back yard! Explore, hike, raft, wade, in a private wilderness setting. Hours & days can be spent with out seeing it all. From second growth evergreens 200 ft tall to step rugged terrain. All on our riverfront 5 acres. The river gravel bars are a world of there own. Countless acres of gravel and streams collide with the nooksack river to provide days worth exploring. And you have it all to your selves, we rarely see anyone down at the river.
