Overview

About the property

Chalet, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Gorgeous River View & Access

Come to the Riversong Chalet Retreat and breathe in the peace and tranquility of nature overlooking the white-waters of the Snoqualmie River's most southern fork. This charming Chalet has been updated to make for a comfortable and inviting get-a-way! Situated just across from the John Wayne Trail and nestled in a canopy of evergreens, it is the perfect spot to meditate, read, write, paint or satisfy your hunger to hike, kayak, bike, golf or ski.

The Chalet has soaring ceilings matched by sweeping views of the boulder filled, foamy whitewater river and towering fir, aspen, cedar and hemlock. Eagle and Osprey fish happily here, while Mallards and Heron have also claimed the river for sunning and fishing. Elk, deer and squirrel can be seen and lend to the feeling of blending with nature. Although located just minutes from I-90, once on the property, you'll feel a million miles away.

The downstairs bedroom is fitted with a queen Tempurpedic mattress. The upstairs loft bedroom has a four poster with a firmer queen mattress with memory foam toppers for an extra comfortable rest. There is also a single sleigh bed in the loft for a child or extra guest. The loft is 400 sq. feet so there is plenty of room for the cots located in the closet for extra little sleepers! (5 Adults Max) (**Note: There is also a PacknPlay located in the upstairs closet if needed) The home is cozy and charming with ambient lighting, spiral staircase to the upper loft, wood floors, a cushioned porch swing and fire pit on the deck.

We are located 10 minutes from the Snoqualmie Casino which features world class dining and entertainment! The town of North Bend is the home of the legendary Twin Peaks filming and Twedes Cafe where memorabilia abound. Twin Falls St. Park, Mt. Si and trails, Rattlesnake Lake and hiking trails, and The John Wayne Trail are all within either walking or biking distance or minutes by car. Snoqualmie Pass ski slopes are just fifteen minutes east! We have supplied games and books, two color televisions and a hearth to warm yourself and loved ones by.

Get past a writer's block, rest from the chaos of the city, or just come to have a welcome change of pace! This comfortable nest will be a delight to arrive at and hard to leave!

About Valerie Fogel & DeAnne Dodson

We have been residents in North Bend since 1997. We fell in love with the mountains and the rivers, the hikes and the scenery. We love to travel, write, paint, and spend time with family and dear friends. Being a part of the Great Pacific Northwest is and will always be a passion. The smell of the fir trees, the roil of the river, the eagle and wildlife that share these vast and intimate spaces are our extended family and never ending source of satisfaction.

Valerie Fogel & DeAnne Dodson purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Valerie Fogel & DeAnne Dodson chose Riverbend

We bought this home to have a retreat to share with family and friends. It feels miles from the hub-bub of the suburbs or the city, but is actually just minutes away from nightlife or the airport!

What makes this chalet unique

The most treasured benefit of staying at this property is the close proximity to nature and the serenity and peace that brings!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came here to escape from the "real" world for a few days and couldn't have found a better place. We enjoyed spending time exploring along the trails and the river. The weather was perfect for relaxing on the deck, enjoying the sights and sound of the river. It was nice to let the city ebb away to be replaced by the soothing sounds of nature. The chalet was cozy, comfortable and romantic. What a rare treat to be able to relax in front of the fireplace while enjoying the sounds of the river just outside the door.



Everything here at the chalet met and exceeded our expectations and we definitely hope to return in the future.

Charming Chalet by the River's Edge

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared the chalet with his sister for a long weekend in June. We were in town for a high school graduation. It is very peaceful and relaxing. The long deck spans the back of the house and overlooks the river. It is just beautiful. The house is very comfortable. There is a bedroom downstairs and the second bedroom is an open loft upstairs. My husband and I used that and I felt like we had plenty of privacy. The beds were very comfortable. It was very clean when we got there and DeAnne & Valerie were quick to respond when we could not figure out the TV. Breakfast was the only meal we cooked there but the kitchen was adequately equipped to accommodate that.

I will definitely be adding this one to my favorites list!

A beautiful little cabin with tons of charm

  • 4 of 5

I absolutely loved staying at the cabin. I was so impressed with how lovely it is, pride of ownership is evident in every nook and cranny.

Not only is the property beautiful, it's comfortable too. The river right off the deck was breathtaking, I especially enjoyed the sound of the water as I read my book.

Very scenic, Cozy and Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here while in North Bend for my daughter’s wedding.

Magical chalet right on the rushing river.

Very well furnished and stocked. Owners take great pride in this get-a-way , and as guests it is most enjoyable and relaxing.

As a luxury VRBO owner myself, 5 stars for the River Edge Chalet. I will stay here again, for sure !!

Absolute heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

I feel so lucky to have stumbled across this rental. Wow what beautiful, peaceful location. From all the ceder and Douglas fir trees, to the river just out back on the deck. I didn't want to leave:)

The bed was very comfortable. Has a full kitchen and grill out back. Every comfort from home. If I contacted the owner, she responded back fast, was friendly and super helpful.

There are several good restaurants nearby and grocery stores. The snoqualmie falls are about 15 minute drive. We come in town for a Twin Peak tour. Many scenes were shot for the show in North bend and Snoqualmie.

Went to Seattle one day for a tour as well. (about 45 minutes without traffic) The city is cool, but I'm so happy we booked this lovely place to stay at instead. I would come back for sure!

Stop looking and book this house! So worth it :)

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. :)

Riversong

  • 4 of 5

Excellent over the river deck ! Very awesome place for relaxing or for fishing or entertaining- only yuck is the shower curtain has black mildew on the plastic curtain and the kitchen cupboards are in need of cleaning - disgusting and probably not good for you. I wonder if the owners know they are getting ripped off by whoever they pay to clean. The appliances are excellent!

Owner's Response: We are so grateful that our guests come and enjoy the serenity and beauty of our rustic chalet on the river. We regularly come to the chalet to take a peek and make certain that our little get-a-way is well maintained and comfortable. Occasionally, life can meet with a bump in the road, so we ask that our guests not hesitate to immediately text, email or call if there is something that does not meet with comfort or satisfaction needs. Making certain that our guests are comfortable and happy is our priority, so letting us know right away allows us to address the issue as soon as possible, so that the balance of your stay is happy and enjoyable!
