About the property

Luxury Reclaimed Timber Home 3 Bdr, 2 Bath, Hot Tub, Private, Gourmet Kitchen

Come and stay at the Knotty Lodge in Glacier, a one of a kind rustic mountain retreat, with luxury amenities, custom built by owners in 2013.

As you walk in you are immediately greeted by huge 8x8' rough sawn exposed timbers that come from an old illinois barn, built in 1898. A pleasant mix of barn beams, reclaimed wood walls and sleek drywall creates an extremely cozy and inviting space. Looking across the expansive white granite kitchen counter, a giant stacked stone wood burning fireplace with a 55' flatscreen takes center stage in the main room. Custom wood floors in living areas, slate in kitchen and lower bath, and plush carpet in the bedrooms. Main floor features a queen sized bedroom and main bath with large walk in shower and laundry closet. 2 queen bedrooms upstairs are separated by a large bathroom done in travertine. Double sinks on a custom made walnut slab vanity, glass frame walk in shower with double shower heads and exposed wood beams create a spa like atmosphere. Large upstairs loft area with cozy sectional couches overlooks the living area with the fireplace and hand made antler chandelier.

Our place was designed and built in an eco friendly manner, with our guests ultimate comfort in mind. For this reason we went with all energy star rated appliances and lighting, high grade wood windows, premium insulation, and no voc paints and finishes. Our top of the line trane heating system is amended by a 99.9% hepa filter and an hvr unit that constantly circulates air through the home to maintain clean and fresh air.

Landscaping around the home was done using all native rock that was excavated during construction. Hot tub, fire pit and storage shed in private backyard setting surrounded by tall trees. Sunny front patio is a perfect place to enjoy an afternoon drink while taking in the view of slide mountain.

About Csaba Mundi

We are the Mundis, more specifically Csaba and Rosemary :) Rosemary works a physical therapist in blaine and Csaba is a contractor/reclaimed wood fanatic working all over the place.

We grew up in Whatcom County and have been a huge fan of the mountains and snowboarding for all our lives. Ever since we first met in 2006 we both agreed that we wanted a place in beautiful Glacier WA. We got married in 2012 and decided to build our first dream home all at the same time. The foundation for the knotty lodge, was poured on the day of our wedding. -talk about crazy :)

We love meeting new people from all around and sharing a slice of the mountain lifestyle with each and every guest we welcome at the Knotty Lodge.

Hope to se you soon!

Csaba & Rosemary

Csaba Mundi purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Csaba Mundi chose Glacier

Csaba rescued an old barn from Illinois that was built in 1898, knowing that he wanted to build a reclaimed timber home using all the wood he had salvaged. Two years later we acquired our beautiful southern facing lot in the glacier springs community. We had been looking for years at this awesome little neighborhood near Mt. Baker with a laid back lifestyle and the best water in the state.

After we bought the property, we designed the home around the timbers Csaba had salvaged, and built it ourselves with the help of our great friends and family. Our appreciation for using reclaimed and eco friendly materials is evident throughout the home from the native stone fireplace to the hand made barn wood furnishings.

The Knotty Lodge has become a much appreciated get-away destination for many guests since we entered the vacation rental market in Dec 2013

The Knotty Lodge is our first vacation property, and an exceptional showpiece for Csaba's business in log and timber homes and wood working.

We are proud to have one of the nicest places in Glacier, we keep it clean and new and love welcoming all our guests to enjoy it as well.

What makes this lodge unique

Enjoy the feel of a historic 115 year old barn frame resurrected into a beautiful home, top of the line finishes through out, and user friendliness of a modern home are just few perks our property offers. Not having any immediate neighbors makes it a very private and peaceful place. Unwind from the busy city life, or a long day on the slopes in the brand new hot tub, or sip a glass of wine in front of the Rumford fire place.

The house is exactly like the pictures shown. It's cozy and inviting.

  • 4 of 5

The eye for details are shown through out the house. The kitchen was well stocked and the granite was gorgeous. The layout of the home is open and the upstairs lift area provides a nice nook for some relaxation.

Excellent Cabin in the Woods - Cool Owners

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this cabin for 7 days and loved every aspect of it. This is a very well appointed cabin that comes across rustic & authentic. Everything you need & more is made available to their guests. The owners are extremely easy to work with, all questions answered. We met them at the cabin, everything was shown and explained with an in-town contact should there be issues or emergencies. I really appreciated that the house was so rustic but also had all the modern technology comforts. I highly recommend this place for quiet getaways or your place to stay while at Mt. Baker. The owners are very good VRBO'ers, thanks guys. =)

Beautiful cabin home

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. Easy to find yet tucked away in the woods. Extremely comfortable. Really enjoyed the kitchen. The grill, hot tub and fire pit had many conversations throughout our stay. Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin with us. September is the perfect time of year to go.

Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved the house; it's a delight to explore this property and the surrounding neighborhood. The interior structure, made from old barn beams and the use of barn wood on many walls makes this new and modern house feel regal and adds a great touch to the decor. The kitchen had all the tools you will need, and the BBQ was great to cook on.

After long days hiking the many trails around Glacier the hot tub was a welcome relief to all.

This house is perfect for 3 couples or a good size family. Makes a great base camp but heck you never really need to leave.

Awesome Property... Accommodating Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the Knotty Lodge over a long weekend with my family (2 kids 5 & 8) and my parents. Everybody had a wonderful time enjoying the fantastic home, hot tub, fire pit and outdoor wooded backyard area. The lodge itself is truly unique, with reclaimed woodwork throughout, which adds both beauty and character to the house. House was very nicely appointed, beautiful bathrooms, stocked kitchen, etc. Lots of outdoor tables to sit together and eat/play games as well as a large counter top space in the kitchen with stools. Everything was clean and ready for our stay.

Location--just a few short minutes outside the town of Glacier and about 25-30 minutes from Mt. Baker recreational hiking areas and ski lifts. There is a wonderful hike that begins a few blocks from the house (short and perfect for kids), which leads to a stream or to the Nooksack river --kids had a blast there.

Hosts--often times with vacation rentals, you unlock the key from a box, read some instructions and that's about it. Not so with Csaba and Rosemary. Communicated with Csaba over email a few times trying to work out our dog situation--we wavered back and forth on bringing him. Csaba always responded quickly and was very accommodating regarding our change in plans. Received a very nice phone call from him on the day of our check in and he was very accommodating on working out our arrival time. When we arrived, his wife Rosemary welcomed us to the home, gave us a tour and walked us through the TV and other systems. And, left us with a gift basket with s'mores fixings and a bottle of wine. Even the caretaker, Orland, who lives in the area, stopped by and said "hello" and even had a little trinket for the kids.

Overall, great experience all the way around and would definitely recommend. Will be back ourselves if we plan another trip in this area.
