Glacier house description
Located in beautiful downtown Glacier, Washington, the newly completed (January 2003) Mt. Baker View Guest House offers wonderfully cozy accommodations with breathtaking views of Mt. Baker.
The guest house is a two-minute walk to Mt. Baker Snowboard Shop, Glacier Ski Shop, Milano's Italian Restaurant, Graham's Restaurant,
Graham's Store (great for video rentals, espresso drinks, deli sandwiches and a variety of grocery items.) You can also follow a trail to the banks of the Nooksack River-about a 7-minute walk. The guest house is also extremely convenient. After an active day, you can come down from the mountains with no need to get back in your car for evening activities, or for returning rental gear.
The guest house has two bedrooms with queen-sized beds, a queen airbed on legs (with bedding), and a small futon cushion for the floor. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking utensils, dishes, microwave, coffee grinder/drip pot, blender and toaster. Frosted mugs will be waiting in the freezer.
The guest house is on the second story, above a large garage. The locked garage allows for safe storage of gear and also has ping-pong a
foosball and pool tables, ideal for family tournaments. An extra bathroom (with shower) and laundry room are also available for guest
use in the garage. A 30'x50' sport court is on with 2 basketball hoops and a pickle ball net is on the property as well.
There is a TV with a VCR and DVD player only (no other reception).There is also a small stereo (cd's and tapes) and a telephone exclusively for local or credit card calls.
The view from the hot tub on the deck outside the dining area is wonderful, and is a great place to relax at the end of the day.
Fall can be the best time to take a hike in the North Cascades. Generally clear September and October weather, gorgeous fall color,
and plentiful mountain blueberries all combine to make this an incredible time to visit us.
Winter activities must include a trip to Mt. Baker Ski Area. It is open mid November to the last weekend in April (weather permitting).
In a good snow year, the town of Glacier can have snow on the ground when the rest of the county doesn't. Due to its position in the
valley, Glacier is often protected from winter winds that can be prevalent in the surrounding foothills. Sledding cross-country skiing,
and snowshoe trails are easily accessible.
Springtime skiing at Mt. Baker can be some of the best. Late storms can bless us with awesome powder days, sunshine and warmer nights can produce excellent 'corn snow'. This is a great time for backcountry skiing (check avalanche conditions). Note: In order to access the back country you must have a transceiver (and knowledge of how to use it), a shovel and a friend along who has the same. Please call the avalanche hot line before proceeding.
Summertime is great for rafting, kayaking and fishing, all in the fabulous jade green water of the Nooksack River. The hiking trails
range from strenuous to easy. In late July you can drive to Artist Point for incredible views and easy hikes around Table Mountain. Be
sure to stop at Nooksack Falls view area on your way up or down HWY. 542, (off of Wells Creek Road). Challenging mt. bike trails are
abundant around the town of Glacier. People who enjoy a strenuous bike ride will love the challenge of riding Mt. Baker Hwy to the top at Artist Point, approximately 25 miles.
