About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Picture yourself on the porch with a glass of wine in hand. The tranquil river rolling by with the occasional eagle or duck spotting. If you are lucky even deer. The view can not be better with the snow capped mountains and the colorful sunsets of orange, pink and red.

Maggies Cabin was built in 1936 and has the original river rock fireplace. The roaring fireplace warms you from head to toe. We have all you could want and more!

We are only 23 miles from Stevens pass and offer discount lift tickets. Ski season is very popular...they have now added mountain biking in the summer.

My favorite thing about this property is the covered large porch! It could be snowing, raining or sunny and you can stay covered and enjoy the sound of the river rolling by. I have even spent the night outside on a blow up bed and enjoyed the river's sound as I slept. We added new plush beds this year and they are also a favorite.

There are many close hikes all around...I always walk down to the single lane suspension bridge....very romantic place too. I had friend get engaged on it.

Time to make a getaway for the Mountains!

We also offer discount ski passes to Stevens Pass. Inquire.

To add to the options...we have Maggies Love shack listing number is 723052...It is just across the road from Maggies Cabin and is a must to look at! We had so much fun transforming this place...every door and window replaced. Granite countertops; custom cabinets; dimmers on everyl light switch. No special touch was missed! Check out my website for more information.

We put live Christmas tree in the cabin for the holiday! 🎄

About Colleen

I work full time making people look great. I am a hair colorist. I love making people happy. I enjoy the cabin myself and want to share the experience!

Colleen purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Colleen chose Baring

It is on high bank of the river and the view is remarkable. The cabin also gets sunshine during the day and afternoon with wonderful sunsets. We first bought the cabin for skiing...but have found it is wonderful all year long. My husband and I were married here.

What makes this cabin unique

We are the only cabin around who has a generator when the weather is stormy and airconditioning when the weather is hot. We also give you a bottle of Champagne or wine to start your vacation off right. Logo "Maggies cabin" cups to enjoy using and take home for a souvenir.

Cozy cabin with the best view, ever

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Maggie's Cabin! It was a perfect location for a weekend of snowboarding and the view was unbeatable. Maggie's personal touches around the cabin were delightful.

Be aware that the thermostat can't keep the house above 64 degrees if it's really cold outside so bring firewood- the big fireplace is amazing!

Great, relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5

Loved getting here from Chicago with my husband for a few days to do some hiking, site seeing (in Leavenworth) and relaxing. Such a great place to be secluded from everything yet still have some fun things to go do in the area!

We did a super long hike that we are definitely not used to be being from the flat lands of Illinois, so the hot tub was a nice treat after the long day to relax the muscles and with such amazing views. The photos of the back yard view really don't do it justice!

Only a couple things to mention, we were surprised we had to pay $25 to dispose of our trash. I know it had changed due to some circumstances, but don't feel we should have been responsible for that cost and task of going to the dump trying to get back to Seattle for the airport.

The other is just a suggestion; having some staple items in the cabin would have been a huge help. Such as olive oil, pam etc. we were surprised nothing was really left over from someone previously or just on hand because they are items that really add up at the store but you need to have when cooking.

Overall, great, cozy place to stay! Thank you, Maggie!

Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Sitting on the porch listening to the river was so peaceful. Sitting in the hot tub to relax after a day of hiking was wonderful. We were surprised to find a book that gave us directions and information about hiking trails. We hope to come back next year and stay 2 weeks.

A beautiful cabin overlooking the river, the perfect get away to just decompress.

  • 5 of 5

This property is so well taken care of with all the amenities that you would find at your home. A fully stocked kitchen, nice soft beds, comfy couches, big screen TV, internet, and a wonderful covered deck overlooking the river and mountains. The hot tub was amazing while drinking wine and listening to your favorite music too. Our time spent at Maggie's Cabin was just what we needed to reenergize ourselves. The owner, Colleen was amazing and let us know that if there was anything we needed don't hesitate to call her. Thanks, for a wonderful vacation.
