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 Glacier

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.

Cozy getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved the windows overlooking the woods. Really made you feel like you were part of the forest. Very comfortable bed. Kitchen had everything you need, including all the little condiments (sugar, coffee, pepper, oils). Jacuzzi was super. We did loose power for 2 days (tree vs power line), but the propane corner stove kept us cozy and warm. Only thing missing was a hairdryer!

Perfect hideaway for two.

  • 5 of 5

We spent our 50th wedding anniversary here enjoying the simple life and each other. The hot tub was ready to go and we made good use of it throughout the weekend. The drive up to Picture Lake with the amazing fall colors was wonderful and then to come back to the cabin to talk and read was perfect.

Perfect place for a weekend getaway. Windows allow for a panoramic view of serene woods and endless forest views. Ideal for hitting the trails or cruising up to the slopes.

Great place and as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the Simple Life Cabin to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. The cabin was great and everything was as advertised. Directions were easy to follow. It is clear the owners take pride in the property and want their guests to enjoy it thoroughly. Glacier and the surrounding towns/area were incredible. Had a yummy meal at Milanos, enjoyed Wake + Bakery for coffee in the mornings, and the hiking was top notch. Thanks Simple Life Cabin for making our trip a success!

Third time; loved it.

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying at the simple life cabin, twice as a base for a week of Mt. Baker area hiking and once as a quiet get away. It will continue to be our first choice when we return. Glacier is very peaceful place to get away.

It is a small cabin, suitable for a solo or couple but with an open air design up that makes it seem large. The house is set up such that the entire backside has windows overlooking a fern and tree filled gulley; lots of privacy. We enjoyed eating our meals inside, (some we cooked, others were takeout) and in general hanging around on the couch looking out. The hot tub was a daily treat, and there's a hiking trail into the woods that is just past the driveway. We walked this one evening to the river. The community has a friendly vibe to it.

The accommodations were as advertised, the response from the owners was quick, the price was reasonable, WiFi worked well, and there is a house phone (no cell service).

For food, there's Chair Nine Pizza w/in walking distance; Milano's/Graham's five minutes drive away; North Fork Pizza Brewery and Rifugio's about 30 min away. The restaurant in Maple Falls is reopening too, ten minutes away. And of course Wake and Bakery five minutes away. We stopped by there every morning.

The kitchen had all we needed in terms of pots/pans/utensils/coffee pot. Bring your own personal items like soap/shampoo etc. and food items which is standard for VRBO places. towels provided; Bed was comfortable. The place was clean and immaculate upon our arrival.

Be sure to have all the info printed out since there's no cell/wifi in town to pull it up. It was easy.

Also, the owners do a good job with providing info before your visit, and a notebook in the place for info relevant to your visit and what to do etc.

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!




Additional information about rental rates

non-refundable cleaning $50 + Tax
Tax Rate 10.5%

Priority is given to longer rentals; we take two night rental reservations for only the next thirty days. Exceptions may be made, and are done so only by the owners! Likely reasons for exceptions: 1. If your check-in date is the same as the check-out date of the previous guest. 2. If your check-out date is the same as the next guest. 3. If you want a mid-week rental, and it is the slow season. One can view all our reservations by clicking the "flexible dates" box. Major US holidays require a three night stay.

Once we have received your payment, you will be sent directions and check-in information. If you have any questions, never fear, we will answer them promptly, and in exacting detail. Just don't call before coffee.
