About the property

Hot Tub, awesome KING bed, VIEW, and the coolest little cabin one could dream of

The Simple Life Cabin is the third cabin of the Snowlee Collective. Check out our other two properties to see how we do it: The JimJack Shack ( and the Mt. Baker Birdhouse ( Both of these cabins have been very well received and we expect the Simple Life Cabin to be the best yet. And why shouldn't it? This cabin should appeal to all. It is quiet, clean, beautiful and comfortable. Bring your significant other here, and revel in their company. Or come alone, just you and your book; the one you are writing. This place is worthy of a masterpiece!fcg

About eli lee

We live in Bellingham with our daughter and two dogs, in a perfect little neighborhood right next to the grade school of our choice. My Wife and I met at Grahams bar right down the street in Glacier. I proposed to her at one of our other cabins; we still love the woods and solitude of Glacier

eli lee purchased this house in 2014

Why eli lee chose Northwest & Islands

The Simple Life Cabin has been on our radar for a LONG time. We have always admired it from afar, and when it came up for sale we immediately purchased it; no hesitation. We love the architecture of it, and the way it glides across the landscape.

What makes this house unique

Nestle in to the Simple life. It isn't hard to do.

Wonderful weekend relaxing at The Simple Life cabin. We stayed in the entire time, watching movies, playing games, and enjoying the view. The cabin has everything you need! We would definitely come back.

Perfect place for a romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin has a cozy, mid-century modern aesthetic, and is nestled nicely into the woods to feel very secure, secluded, and alone. If you want to engage with neighbors, there is a public pool and open grass to play in nearby, but if you don't want to engage with neighbors, the hot tub is nice and private with minimal view of the neighbors. The house is mostly windows, all which face into the woods, giving it a very secluded PNW feel. This is just a short drive from a handful of great hikes in the Mt. Baker Nat'l Forest, North Cascades Nat'l Park, or Mt. Baker Ski Area.

Beautiful, peaceful room in the forest w/thoughtful amenities

  • 5 of 5

Such a treat to stay in Eli + Beth's place! We came up to ski and once we walked in we decided to mostly stay in, resting, and cooking w/some occasional hikes. Loved listening to the birds, sitting in the hot tub, and looking out the windows. IMPORTANT NOTE: do look up all the check in details before you leave home (or Wi-Fi access). We didn't which complicated checking in. Chair 9's bartender graciously let us get on their Wi-Fi so all ended well. Learn from us so you don't do the same.

Discover your Ohm

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful layout. The moment you enter the door and the lush green greets you from the wall of windows you realize this is a very special place. We went for a walk and saw the entrance to Horseshoe Bend Trail, went on a wet and muddy hike with a roaring river as our guide. Came back to the cabin and soaked in the tub as rain continued to fall and the mystical sounds of bird calls and the swaying of the trees washed away the worries of life. Thank you for sharing this lovely treasure. Paz.

Beautiful Secluded Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property to kick off our honeymoon, and then we didn't want to leave! It was soo beautiful. Simple -- that was part of the charm. Everything was super clean and the hot tub was amazing. It was a short and extremely scenic 20 or so minute drive to Baker Mountain. There's a little place called Chair 9 across from the neighborhood where you can grab dinner if you don't feel like cooking, but the accommodations at the house did allow us to cook ourselves a hearty breakfast every morning. The owners were great and very responsive to all of my questions. We will definitely be back for our future anniversaries! Thank you for the perfect getaway!

The Simple Life Cabin is located right on the edge of the Mt. Baker National Forest. This is a quiet corner of the world. Immerse yourself in the forest. Dominating sounds include those of the woodpecker, owl and robin. There is moss everywhere; these stones don't roll! Summertime hikes are in abundance, and winter can be astoundingly serene. Rarely does it snow at the Simple Life, but between the months of January and July, a thirty minute drive will take you straight to the deepest average snowpack in the US, if not the world!
