Come up, visit and stay at South Fork Lodge and let nature wrap its arms around you. Drive through breathtaking views of Mt Index, Sunset Falls, and the beautiful rolling Skykomish River. This Washington River Front Cabin Rental is your home away from home on your Cascade Mountain Vacation. South Fork is an easy drive from Seattle, about 55 miles; Redmond, about 42 miles; Bellingham, about 98 miles; and Leavenworth, about 65 miles.
This little piece of paradise offers tons of activities close by! In the summer there are numerous hikes, lots of fun fishing holes to find. Terrific kayaking, rafting, and swimming, biking trails and rock climbing just name a few. Or just sit back in your own oasis and enjoy the serene views at this River Front rental. In the winter there are just as many fun thrills with down hill skiing, cross country skiing, snow boarding, snowmobiling, and sledding up at Stevens Pass Ski Resort which is about 20 miles away.
Immerse yourself into this newly remodeled and decorated studio that accommodates one or two comfortably. Let the soothing sounds of nature allow you to soar into blissful pleasures. Enjoy the view from all the windows that face out on the bend of the river. Sit and relax in the comfy furniture, before a rustic rock framed propane fireplace and watch tv or read a great book. Put up your feet outside on the deck that spans the whole studio and read, write, relax and enjoy the view. Bring up your food and cook inside in the fully furnished kitchen or barbeque on the deck.
Soak in the hottub at night and watch the stars, hear the river, get lost in this sweet paradise. Sink into the fluffy comfort of the king size bed and let the sound of the river take you away into sweet slumbers.
This is a hideaway for a one to four people. Terrific for that busy person who needs some quiet time to get away, think and pursue big dreams, or a couple who wish to get away from it all and enjoy a romantic weekend, or anyone that just wishes to be close by all the wonderful scenic beauty the Index area has to offer.
Open the door to the spectacular 650sq ft ground floor rental apartment, that has just been renovated. With large windows offering an unparalled view of the Skykomish River and Philadelphia ridge. Knotty pine, hardwood floor and a stone fireplace provide that beautiful rustic cabin feeling, but with modern conveniences.
This is a perfect hideaway for anyone to just think, dwell, be inspired, connect, and get away from the monotony of life. Come on in, put away your luggage, hang up your coats, and put your feet up after a long day of hiking or skiing.
Come in to comfy furniture to sit in and a tall dining table one can sit at and enjoy the view of the river. With a full kitchen and barbecue on the deck you can just immerse yourself into the peaceful scene and cook here. Or head out within 8-20 miles and enjoy some eating out at various restaurants in Gold Bar, Start Up and Sultan.
New pillow top king size bed will allow you that deep sleep you've been needing. Large bathroom with shower, sink, toilet and washer/dryer will give you those needed amenities, which make it nice for longer than a nights stay. Also a new leather queen sleeper sofa if you wish to come with children or another couple or family members. It is a Studio, so all one space but roomy.
The deck spans the river and has a hot tub and seating and a barbecue for grilling.
South Fork Lodge is close to many hikes, Lake Serene Trailhead and Bridal Veil Falls are just down the road and offer some pristine beauty. Wallace Falls is in Gold Bar and a great hike to 3 waterfalls. There is a book in the lodge that goes over many other hikes and some maps to get you where your going.
Rock climbing is all around but the most famous is in Index at the Index Wall.
Rafting and Kayaking is very popular and many companies can give you one wild ride down this river.
Fishing along the Skykomish river is popular with lots of fishing holes!
Stevens Pass is home to all that winter fun activity and is just 25 minutes up Highway 2 from your lodge.
So come on up for skiing and snow boarding and sledding!
You are just moments away from wonderful activities all around you at this place. Its a very beautiful and warm and cozy newly remodeled place that will take your breath away at the view.
Come up and immerse yourself into this beautiful bit of paradise.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I bought this bit of paradise in 2001 and have been renovating the property since then. I'm so excited to now share this beautiful site with other travelers. I love to travel and have paid attention to what makes a place feel like home and to try to include those amenities that make a place feel special, warm and cozy. I fell in love with the property because of the view of the river. This location is right on the bend of the South Fork of the Skykomish River and comes right at you while your on your deck and goes by you. So you can look up the river and down the river. You can see Mt Index as you drive into the driveway but can't see it from your deck. But you can see the Cascades from your deck and Philadelphia Ridge. Just down the road is Sunset Falls that I walk my dog down to. I love this area and hope to share it with you.
Why the Owner Chose Stevens Pass:
I bought this place because it was just beautiful and I always wanted to live in the woods. The best thing is that its close to town, the ski resort is just 25 min away. Leavenworth ( a cute little Bavarian styled town is just a little over an hour away over the pass). Seattle is about 55 min away if you wish to engage in the nightlife, shopping, or theater. Snohomish is about 45 min away and is quite the Antique town! Lots to do here. I love to hike and walk with my dog and feel like I'm just immersed in nature but yet close by some stores and culture too.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
A breathtaking view of the river, since you are right on it. There is a small beach access just up the road and great to put in your innertube and float a bit. HIking is plentiful here with numerous hikes all around. Lake Serene Trailhead is just down the road. Heybrook is an easy hike up to a fire lookout tower. Barclay Lake is easy with just 2 miles and a gorgeous lake. The Iron Goat Trailhead is terrific for the history of our great railway and some wonderful view points. Kayaking and Rafting are plentiful and I'd highly recommend going. Its a full day of super fun. This is a class 5 river and wild at parts. You can walk around the wild parts if rapids have you scared. Its best to bring up your food and grill or cook here but there are plenty of restaurants that are between 8 and 20 miles away. Fishing and rock climbing and photography also are highlights of this destination. This is fairly private. I have a few neighbors. I'm close by but tree's and brush keep things private between the buildings. Satellite TV with new large flat screen tv, dvd player and free wifi makes things comfortable when the weather isn't conducive to being outside. For those coffee/latte lovers there are numerous coffee places to get that favorite java up and down Hwy 2. The closest is probably just up the road past Index at The Espresso Chalet. I hope you'll come up and stay at South Fork Lodge.
