Dixie's River Retreat is a unique and beautiful mountain oasis perfect for your next North Cascades vacation! Tucked along the Skykomish River, surrounded by trees and lush greenery, it's the ideal location to relax and unwind from your city stresses and cares. Step inside and be greeted by the gorgeous fir floors, high end finishes, and spacious light-filled layout. The kitchen is a work of art, from the large apron sink to the new granite countertops, and offers plenty of space to prepare family-style meals for your whole crew. Also on the main floor, you will find a spacious living room/dining room to seat everyone in comfort, with an enormous wall of windows to let the light pour in.
The living room offers a flatscreen TV, plenty of board games, and a huge movie collection with something to please everyone! There are two cozy bedrooms downstairs, one with a queen bed and the other with two twins. A fully refinished bathroom and laundry area are situated nearby as well. Upstairs, in the spacious open loft, the master bedroom resides along with a beautiful ensuite bath with a large walk-in shower for ultimate luxury and comfort. A full-size futon completes the master bedroom loft space and brings the total guest count to a maximum of 8. Note: this master bedroom space is not enclosed.
In addition to all the fantastic amenities, Dixie's River Retreat features immediate access to the Skykomish - with new custom-built steps leading right to the river - and breathtaking views of the mountainous surroundings. While Highway 2 is close to the property and there is occasional traffic noise (see our photos to view proximity to the Stevens Pass Highway), a fully fenced dog run in the yard allows pooches to play freely, and the view from the back of the home over the lush yard towards the river is as serene and peaceful as it gets. No neighbors are within view of the home, so you will enjoy the privacy as well as the beauty that this mountain cabin has to offer. Perfect proximity to all the nearby recreation - skiing, snowboarding or mountain biking at Stevens Pass, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing at the Nordic Center, river rafting and rock climbing in Index, and all the best hikes in the region - is another huge plus that your friends and family will love. The Baviarian village of Leavenworth is also just a little over an hour's drive away, which makes for a quick and easy day trip! All in all, this home has the luxury, comfort, and prime location you are looking for in your next mountain vacation.
Traveling with a bigger group? Another beautiful cabin - Sky River's Edge (vrbo.com/963974)- is only one-tenth of a mile away!
***Please Note: Dixie's River Retreat is located near Stevens Pass along the Skykomish River, which is an historic area for the Great Northern Railroad. Trains still pass near the cabin to this day (the railroad tracks are located just on the other side of Hwy 2) and this can create some noise, but our cabin owners and guests alike find it to be a charming aspect of the home and the area.***
