About the Property

3Br (+Loft), 2ba, Easily Sleeps 9, Spacious, Quiet & Comfy

This house is in Glacier, WA, which is about as close as you can stay to Mt. Baker without a tent. You can hear the Nooksack River out the window, walk through the woods and pick mushrooms and then go for a hike out your back door. Or, go ski the deepest snowpack in North America - it's up to you!

We have a great kitchen, record player with plenty of retro vinyl, a guitar and banjo. This place is quiet and suited for relaxing in one of the many recliners.

Chair9 is an easy walk for those looking for some live music and to meet new friends. You can also get internet there for those that need to check in with the real world.

In the summer, Church Mountain is in your backyard. The alpine meadow up there will make you feel as if you're in the middle of the swiss alps. It's one of my favorite hikes in the Pacific Northwest. You'll see more wildlife in 2 hours than you will elsewhere all summer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: The four of us had been coming up here for years as renters to enjoy the peace, fresh air and DEEP snow that Baker has to offer. We finally decided to make a little slice of it our own. Knowing what we appreciate in a Baker cabin, we tried to create a fun, functional, comfortable place for our guests to enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Deming, WA, USA:
Baker is truly the antidote to the mega-resort-craziness that seems to be the trend lately. We knew we wanted to be in the Snowline community (good people, great amenities, perfect location). Not to be cliche, but we all loved this place the second we walked int the door. It's got all the space and modern comforts you could want, but still holds onto its woodsy, cabin-y charm. Plus, how can you not want to doze in front of that amazing wood stove?

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can hear the Nooksack flowing as you fall asleep, and you'll wake up to a view of Church Mtn. It's quiet and well off the road, with hiking trails out the back door. Pool and tennis courts are 5 minutes away. Modern kitchen with pass-thru counter to the dining area, overstuffed couches and chairs by the fireplace, separate living room upstairs with TV/DVD.
