Why Rita chose Puget Sound North

The uniquely beautiful location above the Skykomish River

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such an amazing time!!! We were fortunate to stay a whole week and wished it could be longer. It was so wonderful to watch my dogs swimming in the river and having the time of their lives! My favorite part was in the early morning when the sun was coming up and river surface was covered by mist. Rita, you made our stay soooo welcoming and personable. You took the time and effort to make sure every detail of our vacation was wonderful ... we see your magical touches everywhere. We cannot wait to come back! This was like our home away from home. Thank you so much!

Great Spring Break Getaway...

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to get away…river, possible fishing, and hiking and then to be able to relax in a hot tub…and then we found the cabin by the river. Rita was quick to respond to all of my questions and then helped me book it very quickly. It was so easy to get to; we were there before we knew it.

Bridal Veil Falls and the Lake Serene trail head is literally just down the road...the hike was great!! We could not have had better weather while we were there. The hot tub was welcomed after the long hike…and to sit and hear the roar of the river while relaxing was perfect.

A river otter visited us the last night we were there enjoying the camp fire alongside the river. The views from the deck were spectacular and we had a fantastic stay! Everything we needed was already there!

Rita, thanks again for everything…we look forward to our next trip up.

Beautiful views, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, twelve year old son and I stayed in this property in June 2017. The property isn't huge; the lounge is "cozy", there isn't a proper door to the bedrooms (there are saloon-bar style doors to the downstairs room and the upstairs is all a bedroom), and there's no storage for luggage etc in the downstairs bedroom. BUT the location is just beautiful, the hot tub is perfect, the property itself is well maintained and really well equipped. The photos on the website are accurate and do the property justice.

My husband and I took the upstairs room and slept with the door open to the balcony so we could listen to the river rushing by at night and wake up to it in the morning - such a treat!

We were able to go fishing as well. Other reviewers have complained that Rita takes too long talking about everything, and she does go through everything in detail which is unusual compared to other properties, but she is passionate about wanting you to have the best time possible and wants you to be able to make use of all the facilities available. Rita also rang us before we arrived and told us where to stop off for bait, and what bait to buy. We didn't catch anything but we had fun trying, so we appreciated her tip!

If you're looking for a good, clean, really well-equipped cabin and a warm welcome from the owner, this is definitely a property worth visiting.

Amazing location with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin has an amazing location along the river with mountain and trees all around. The owner was very friendly and accommodating, giving us a tour of the cabin and tips on what to see locally.

Serene, peaceful, beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I love the River View Cabin. This is the second time we've stayed and I am sure we will be back many more times. What I love the best about this is it is only just over an hour outside of Seattle but you feel like you're a million miles away. The cabin itself is adorable and cozy with a river view out the large windows. The river is so beautiful, and the sound is a constant backdrop. You'll hear the train as well. Lots of natural light. The hot tub is fabulous! The yard is also beautiful, with many wildflowers and ferns. I took about a million photos. There is a full kitchen with a full size fridge as well as a new gas BBQ so once you show up you don't have to leave again. If you needed to go to town for anything it is only 8 miles away. Rita, the owner, is wonderful and meets you there when you arrive to make sure you know how everything works and if you need anything. I can only speak to the downstairs bed, but wow is it comfortable and the bedding is high quality. If you're a hiker, the cabin is walking distance from the Lake Serene trail head. I can't say enough wonderful things about this place - if you rent here you will not regret it.

Quaint little cabin surrounded by breathtaking scenery.

  • 5 of 5

Rita gave us quite a lot of information when we checked in and it was all very helpful. The cabin is tiny but suited us quite well for the weekend. We had 2 couples and 2 dogs so there wasn't a lot of room to spare. But we weren't looking for extra room. The deck was lovely and the hot tub was perfect after a day on the slopes.
