Mount Baker house description

The Glacier Getaway has high ceilings and lots of windows. Enjoy the best sun in Glacier on the deck or in the front room. Even with all that sun the Getaway is surrounded by Cedars and Hemlocks for the Northwest feeling. On a cold rainy day hang out around the fire place playing games, watching movies, reading books or making music on the guitar and banjo we have provided for your entertainment. On warm sunny days you can keep moving around the decks to follow the sun or the shade. Look out the many windows- nature abounds surrounded by gorgeous trees and birds and sometimes a deer or two.

The Glacier Getaway is truly an oasis in Mt. Baker from all the hustle and bustle of your every day lives. The Getaway is close to walking trails, the ski area, mountain biking yet you can still get coffee, pizza, Italian food, or bar food just a mile away.

While you are here we invite you to: Take a hike! Ride your bike! Watch a crackling fire in the wood stove. Take pictures. Play music. Cozy up under warm comforters, sit on the sunny deck and sip some tea.

The Getaway sleeps four, but just maybe it can fit a little more. There are two bedrooms. Each has a Queen bed. Upstairs in the loft there is a futon mattress perfect for the young ones or the young at heart. Cozy and Spacious!

Enjoy your connection to the mountains and trees during your stay.

                  The Glacier Getaway is located just minutes from the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. Many of the scenic hiking trails are within a beautiful half hour drive. The Mt. Baker Ski Area is 19 miles up the gorgeous windy Hwy 542. No advertisements- just trees and mountains. If you cross country ski, snow shoe or snowmobile the Sno- Park is even closer. Bikers, walkers, hikers just step out your door and pick a direction. Artist Point is a must from August-October. The blueberries are amazing to eat, then later in the fall the bushes turn crimson, add a dusting of snow and it becomes a glorious wonder of colors.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We (Jimmy and Luca) have lived in Glacier for over 15 years. We love everything about Glacier: the quiet, the outdoor opportunities, the nearby forests, the gentle rain, the mountains and the breathtaking views. Both of us are very involved with our community. Jimmy plays in the local bluegrass band on Thursday nights at Graham's bar. He also plays folk and rock music at Chair 9. Luca worked for the Mt. Baker Snoqualmie National Forest as a Wilderness Ranger for years and years until she moved on in careers and started practicing Rolfing and Thai Massage here in Glacier. Living at the Glacier Getaway was a fantastic place for us to raise our kid when he was younger. We were able to bike around, the hikes were close by and the neighborhood was safe. As he got older, we felt ready to take on a dream of Luca's to buy a farm. We now have a farm in Glacier where Jimmy can play music to his heart's content. Luca has a studio for Rolfing and Thai Massage and their son has space to run and jump and practice to become an NFL quarterback or a professional skier.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mount Baker:
                  The Glacier Getaway is so close to all the fantastic trails for hiking, biking riding, snow sports or gentle neighborhood walks. Yet it is tucked back enough to be quiet if that is what you want or need. It is one of the sunniest lots in all of Glacier. In the early morning it is wonderful to drink coffee or tea out on the deck before we get motivated to go for a hike or bike ride. We loved being so close to town, the ski area and the mountains. If we didn't feel like getting in a car we could just walk around the neighborhood or bike down to town.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the open space of the Glacier Getaway, the high ceilings, the decks, the cedar wood in the living room and the fireplace. We love how it feels both cozy and spacious at the same time. We chose the Getaway because of the sun and the large lot size. The Getaway is just so close to everything that Glacier has to offer.
