About the Property
One bedroom, two bath. Sleeps 2.
Let the robins usher in the new day! Smell the ripe moss and fern forest that envelope this eco-hip, smartly refurbished 70's A-frame. We took a perfectly good four bedroom cabin and ripped all the interior walls out to construct this diamond in the wilderness.
The Jim Jack Shack is the more grown up, citified version of The Mt Baker Birdhouse (vrbo 348877) and is located within throwing distance, making them the perfect compliment to each other. Rent the lower house for the kids!
The Jim Jack Shack has been an outlet for our artistic side. Everything here is the culmination of hard work, ingenuity and long weekends by both of us. It has all new appliances, the kitchen is fully stocked with all your cooking needs. There is a nice coffee maker and blade grinder onsite.
Built for utilitarian comfort out of as much reclaimed and recycled material as possible, the Jim Jack Shack is also super insulated. You will be amazed at the quiet. Try it! You will like it!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Perhaps our coolest kitchen item. This device cooks much faster than a stove, or an oven. In fact, this microwave is also a convection oven. You can cook things in a ridiculously short time frame....moreless

Priority is given to longer rentals; we take two night rental reservations for only the next thirty days. Exceptions may be made, and are done so only by the owners! Likely reasons for exceptions: 1. If your check-in date is the same as the check-out date of the previous guest. 2. If your check-out date is the same as the next guest. 3. If you want a mid-week rental, and it is the slow season. One can view all our reservations by clicking the "flexible dates" box.
All major holidays also require a three night stay. Please, just come for three nights.
Once we have received your payment, you will be sent directions and check-in information. If you have any questions, never fear, we will answer them promptly, and in exacting detail. Just don't call before coffee.
Owner's cancellation policy:
50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.

The Jim Jack Shack is an attraction in and of itself. But if you must leave the cabin, there are plenty of things to do, year round. Some of the favorites of our family include, but are not limited to: Skiing, hiking, picking mushrooms, riding bikes, picking blueberries, sitting at the bar at Grahams, disc golf, jogging on logging roads, bragging about our ski day, watching baby splash in the pool, watching baby do anything.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My wife and I live in Bellingam, Wa. with our young daughter and two ornery dogs. We like to spend our time looking for cool, eclectic homes to rent around the world! Although mostly we just stay home and try to raise our daughter the best we can.
Why the Owner Chose Deming, WA, USA:
The Jim Jack Shack is the second vacation cabin to be rebuilt by us. Seven long years in the making, we are proud of what we have created, and hope that others enjoy them as much as we certainly do. Located on the edge of the Mt. Baker National Forest, the view out the back entrances. Towering cedars and hemlocks, enormous ferns and moss covered boulders, the serenity is un-equaled.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is not your run-of-the-mill cabin. We site-built everything possible and re-used old material when aesthetically permittable. The views are completely private and territorial. Look out the window, any window, and your eyes will feast upon delights of the North Cascades. Sword ferns, Western Red Cedar trees, moss galore, Maples and mushrooms. Come for the cabin, you will return for the view (and the cabin). Need some peace and quiet? This is the place. The roof and walls are crazy-insulated, hardly a peep can be heard of what little traffic there is. Stare out the window. It is like Planet Earth on mute. Create your own sound track.
