About the property

Cabin, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-18)

~ Nestled along Washington's Skykomish River, The River Bend Lodge awaits with floor-to-ceiling windows lending breathtaking views of flowing water, protected forest and Cascade Mountain peaks. While only an hour from Seattle and 30 minutes to Stevens Pass Ski Resort, you will experience all the benefits of complete escape. Our 2,800 sq ft lodge boasts vaulted ceilings with rustic timber beams, knotty-pine walls, and cozy riverstone fireplaces. Relax your cares away in well separated bedrooms with luxurious down pillows, comforters, featherbeds and linens. You will enjoy a fully equipped, open kitchen and 3 bathrooms all with granite countertops and eco-friendly supplies. The lodge is well suited for a vast range of guests and is as charmingly cozy as it is grand. All you need is a change of clothes and whatever sounds good to eat! If you don't feel like cooking, there are a handful of local dining options and a grocery store just a few miles away.

No matter the time of year, every outdoor activity you can imagine is within close proximity...each season highlighting its own magnificent scenery and landscape. Our lodge will serve as the perfect 'home-base' to enjoy all this exquisite region of the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Relax on the deck to immerse yourself in the surroundings and observe native wildlife in action...eagles soaring, fish swimming and hummingbirds feeding to name a few. Spend your evenings toasting marshmallows and telling stories gathered round the outdoor riverside firepit. During the day, walk out the door and down on the bank to cast your line into what is known among avid steelhead fishermen as one of the best spots on the river! Skiing, snowboarding and the like can be found at The Summit of Stevens Pass. Hit the trail and marvel at the breathtaking Lake Serene or hike through nearby Wallace Falls State Park to hear the roar of its majestic 265-foot cascading waterfall. Thrill seekers will enjoy climbing the rocky face of Mt. Index, or rafting the rapids of our very own Skykomish River. For a beautiful drive and unique experience, head to the Bavarian village of Leavenworth for a day. If you fancy wine, enjoy an afternoon in Woodinville Wine Country to see and taste an array from over 75 wineries, both large and small.

Meanwhile, those who embrace simpler pleasures will drift quietly into serenity, surrounded by the thoughtful comforts and full amenities of the lodge. Enjoy quiet moments with a good book in a uniquely hand carved rocking chair overlooking the river and mountain range. Gather round the dining table for an afternoon puzzle or laugh-out-loud evening of board games. Gaze at the stars while toasting marshmallows and telling stories around the riverside firepit. Lay quietly at night and be lulled to sleep by the soothing sounds of the rushing river. Our lodge is accommodating and friendly to kids, senior-citizens and everyone in between! Enjoy a family vacation, friends getaway, business any case, your expectations will surely be exceeded. Whether it's restful relaxation or activity filled excitement you seek, you've found your destination. You will leave with a happy heart, peaceful mind and priceless memories. ~

Great Family Get Together House

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect for our New Year's stay. The house had everything we needed and more. There were 13 of us and everyone enjoyed our time together immensely. Kids had a blast and even in the cold and rain, we were able to use the outdoor fire pit and make smores. The wood burning stove kept us warm and toasty.

We had an extended family of 16 that celebrated Thanksgiving at River Bend was great!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7adults and 9 grandchildren, ages 3 to 73, spent 4 days at the Lodge. The home was spacious enough to accommodate all of us, and since it was Thanksgiving, we were also able to easily prepare and serve a delicious turkey dinner with all the trimmings. The views were fantastic, we even managed to have an outdoor fire and the children roasted marshmallows. We regularly rent homes in order to celebrate holidays together and this was one of the best! We would readily come back again....thank you, Nicole and Brian!

most excellent staff retreat site ever!

  • 5 of 5

Nicole was ever so accommodating to our every need. The site was beautiful and spacious and relaxing, and I highly recommend it to any small group (we were 12) who needs a place to retreat! The views were amazing, we saw eagles and kayaks, osprey and raccoons! We'd come back in a heart beat.

Beautiful lodge and location! Perfect for our spiritual retreat.

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Nicole's lodge is gorgeous, and they are a joy to communicate with. The kitchen and backyard were stocked with all the supplies we needed, and there were more than enough towels and bedding for all our guests. The location is also a plus, right on the river and near the best hikes.Thank you so much for letting us stay here; it was a wonderful experience, and our kids are already talking about going back!
