House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Spectacular all round views from this ranch style cabin in the beautiful Tunk Valley -- a little known piece of rustic countryside bordering the Okanogan National Forest, northeast of Omak and near the small town of Riverside.

Enjoy nature from this luxury cabin and wrap-around porch. A birdwatcher's paradise the Tunk Valley also offers breathtaking views, hiking local forest trails, mountain biking the quiet country roads, fishing at Crawfish Lake, and wildlife viewing from the cabin, in the valley, and at the Tunk Valley Wildlife Area. It also offers just living with a frontier feel.

In summer the land is a sea of color from the grasses and wild flowers, and with the backdrop of mountains and dramatic skyscapes the cabin is a nature artists dream. An easel is provided in the main bedroom, inspiration is provided all around.

In winter the surrounding area offers cross-country and backcountry skiing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing. The cabin is five miles from Crawfish Lake, which usually freezes hard enough to snowmobile, ski or skate on. Local skiing areas include Loup Loup Pass and Havillah, both about one hours drive away.

For those not wishing to drive the cabin sits on 20 acres of private land, where guests are free to wander. A walk around the perimeter is three quarters of a mile.

The cabin itself is at an elevation of around 3,000 feet, and stays a bit cooler than down in the valley. The main floor has a gorgeous living room with a gas cast iron stove for those cozy evenings. There is a large fully equipped kitchen and dining area, and a private master bedroom with bathroom. Upstairs it has two large bedrooms, and a full bathroom. A huge detached double garage is also available.

The cabin is approximately 14 miles from the historic country town of Riverside and the Okanogan River, nearby towns include Omak, Okanogan and Tonasket. The Many Lakes Recreational Area offers many summer activities for boaters and fishermen. Local events include the Omak Stampede and other county fairs. Easy day trips include the Tunk Valley Wildlife Area, the Stonerose Fossil beds, the state park and historical sites at Conconully, the sparkling and unspoilt Omak Lake, the ghost town of Molson, the Loomis National Forest, the Methow Valley, and the North Cascades National Park.

About Owner

I live and work in Seattle as a writer. My wife is a graphic designer, our three kids go to local elementary, middle and high schools. We have been customers of VRBO cabin owners across the West for many years, and decided this was a good way to occassionally rent out our own cabin. We use our cabin regularly as an escape from the big city. We love the space, the peace, and the great outdoors that the Okanogan has to offer.

Owner purchased this House in 2008

Why Owner chose Omak

Peace and tranquility. Wilderness views in all directions, and great access to the wild outdoors.

What makes this House unique

Great air quality. Early morning sunshine. Forests, rivers and lakes in several directions. Wildlife is around.

                                                        Had a wonderful stay. There were beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Very comfortable and relaxing. Very peaceful setting with wonderful views of scenery and wildlife. Enjoyed walking the around the property and roads. Lots of birds to see and got 6 inches of snow to enjoy.

                                                        Fantastic, we felt at home as soon as we walked in the door.

                                                        Bud A.

                                                        We had a very relaxing time. Only wish we would have stayed longer.

                                                        I would recommend this place to anyone that wants to get away from it all.

                                                        Total relaxation!

                                                        I grew up in Omak and wanted my family to experience the area. It was truly awesome. The owner, Peter, was very helpful and made sure everything was up to par. Even checked on us during our stay. Can't wait to go stay there again.

                                                        Amazing views, tranquil setting, relaxing time!

                                                        Christie J.

                                                        We had a great time at this property. We were lucky enough to arrive to 8" of snow and it snowed a couple more inches while we were there. It was very tranquil and relaxing. Just what we needed to unplug from this crazy world. (although they had Wi-Fi if you need it) We read books, cooked our own meals, and walked the property daily. Every direction you looked was like a picture perfect postcard. Great place! Glad we found it.

                                                        A great getaway!

                                                        Kassie D.

                                                        We rented the cabin to visit grandparents and have a mini family reunion. It worked out perfectly for what we wanted. It snowed 3 out of 4 of the days we were there and my 3 year old loved it. It was quite and peaceful and perfect for relaxing. It was actually cheaper for us to stay here than a hotel in town, plus it had all the amenities of home which made it way more comfortable and enjoyable. It was also nice being able to cook our own meals, instead of eating out.

                                                        I gave this a rating of 4 out of 5 because of a couple tiny things. First, the dining table. Although a cute antique and folds out to accommodate more people it wasn't that big. The reviews says sleeps 8 but the table didn't support that. We had to squeeze at the table and add another table to the end. Secondly, the trash situation. It was pilled up in the garage then when we added our garbage to it there was no room for it.

                                                        Overall we really enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay here again.

                                                        Beautiful space with full accomodations! I did not want to leave, and I miss it already!
