A Serene Retreat: Custom Log Cabin W/Stunning Mountain Views

Bedrooms 3
Half Baths1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 1.5 bath, log cabin with mountain views

This custom, hand hewn log home boasts amazing mountain views, spectacular sunrises, unforgettable sunsets and abundant wildlife viewing. A unique home with artistic touches throughout, this is a quiet, upscale retreat.

Located 90 miles from Seattle between Cle Elum and Ellensburg, the cabin is located on 3 private acres only 20 minutes from the summit of Blewett Pass and 45 minutes from Snoqualmie.

It's two bedrooms and loft can very comfortably accommodate six. The master bedroom, situated in the loft, allows views of the sunrise and sunset and the stars at night.

The cabin features a gourmet kitchen stocked with essential cooking supplies, dishes, cutlery and cookware, centered around a generous kitchen island.

You will not find a TV here, but there's plenty of entertainment. On calm nights enjoy the backyard fire pit. A cozy reading nook offers a collection of books and views down the valley. Or simply look out the windows for abundant wildlife (wild turkeys, deer, elk--there's even been a bobcat sighting!) and drink in the view from the couch. Stocked with games and a whole house music system, the cabin offers hours of entertainment unto itself.

For the more adventurous, there's nearby hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, mountain biking, horseback riding, and fly fishing. Use guidebooks at the cabin to plan your hike into the Wenatchee National Forest or The Enchantments Wilderness Area--we have recommendations for easy walks through the forest and challenging treks to the tops of ridges and mountains.

With access just six miles from the cabin, the Blue Ribbon Yakima River holds rainbow and cutthroat trout for the fly fisher. We can recommend talented local guides to row you down the river and help you find fish. Our neighbors at Flying Horseshoe Ranch would love to show you the Teanaway on horseback and have mounts for every level of experience. The Yakima Valley appellation boasts dozens of wineries. Taste to discover your favorite. The Bavarian-themed village of Leavenworth is over Blewett Pass and within an hour you can explore its shops and fun activities.

About Melissa Murray

We are northwest natives who enjoy the outdoors and all the activities this area has to offer. As a family of four and a extended family of many more, we often vacation in the east side of our state and enjoy the differing landscape and climate. Our cabin provides a welcome break and allows us to slow down and relax. We hope you enjoy the cabin as much as we do!

Why Melissa Murray chose North Central Cascades

We love that the property feels like a great getaway but is still within an hour and a half of the Seattle area. It is also close to amenities and activities.

Serene, beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Warm and cozy. Every amenity you could ask for!! Nice kitchen with beautiful large center island. Stayed with my husband, daughter, son-in-law and 10 yr. old grandson. Love sitting outside and braving the fierce wind that seemed to follow us. Definitely would highly recommend! Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Russell. Come back if you are ever in the area again. The winds are almost constant in the spring/early summer but we enjoy it. Thanks again!

We absolutely loved our stay at the cabin! The upstairs bed is one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The way the light comes through the windows with the stunning view of the mountains in the distance is the perfect way to start the morning. The kitchen was fully stocked with spices, goodies, tea and everything we needed to cook our meals. We really appreciated this because we flew in and couldn't bring any of that kind of stuff with us. We grocery shopped at Fred Meyer in Ellensburg, which was only a short drive away. We expected not to have a TV, but we were pleasantly surprised to find one when we arrived. We watched a movie every night after our days of adventuring. There is so much to do in the area if you love hiking. Melissa was wonderful to communicate with and I would give this place a 10 out of 5 stars if I could. It's so quiet and peaceful. We will definitely be back. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Unique Setting

  • 5 of 5

This home sits atop a grassy knoll with a few widely spaced others. Even with the large windows it was very private and had a full view west for sunsets. We cook our own meals and found the kitchen well equipped. Many books with a western topic and others I found unique and wished I could have read them. We hiked at Blewett Pass and the Yakima Skyline Trail with fairly short drives. A great place for relaxation and privacy. Owner was good to work with.

This is a great cabin in a beautiful, peaceful setting. The property is clean, comfortable and well maintained. Gorgeous views, nice decor, very well appointed kitchen and comfy beds. Even the pans were in good shape, which is unusual for most vacation rentals I have stayed in over the past 15 years.

I would gladly stay here again and would recommend this property to others.
