Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
A Riverside Retreat is located in the scenic town of Index, WA, only one hour from downtown Seattle, and 25 minutes from Stevens Pass. Index is the smallest town in western Washington with only 150 residents, but it offers some of the biggest views and the nicest people in the state.
Our riverfront 2-bedroom home sleeps 4 in absolute luxury with new World-Class Simmons Beautyrest Pillow Top mattresses with 600 thread-count linens. The home also includes a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor gas grill with rotisserie, complimentary gourmet coffee (regular and decaf), complimentary popcorn for movie time, and a full-size washer and dryer. There is a phone on site with unlimited calling to the US and Canada.
Though we offer a huge array of entertainment options, most people are mesmerized by the natural beauty of the area, the sight and sound of the river, the smell of the air, and the peace and quiet they have been craving. See our 5-star reviews and contact us today!

Charming and cozy riverside retreat in the Cascade Mountains
Opportunities for outdoor adventures abound and we hiked to nearby Heybrook Lookout. A storm blew in on our second day, cutting our planned rockhounding activities short. Instead, we opted for a drive along the sleepy Index-Galena Road. With wind blowing and heavy rain falling - it proved quite exciting! Leaf after leaf danced from the maple trees, covering the streets in a blanket of autumn color. To our surprise, we easily became used to - and welcomed - the frequently passing trains (we miss them now that we are back home!).
Our time spent at the house was enjoyed. The owners of A Riverside Retreat have gone to great length to ensure your stay will be pleasant. We appreciated the book of information, the wealth of amenities (wifi, cable TV, DVDs, games (nice to see Settlers of Catan among the mix) and books/magazines), thoughtful and tasteful decoration and cleanliness of the house.
Due to weather we didn't make use of the front porch, but the Adirondack chairs would give good place to relax and take in the sound of the river and mountain views. We did enjoy the hot tub (thank you for the directions on removal of the cover) and slept well in the comfortable bed. The kitchen is well equipped and we lacked nothing for preparing meals at home (note: the wine cork is broken, but still usable). During breaks in the rain, I opted to make use of the bikes - but, the one I chose had embarrassingly squeaky breaks so I cut my ride short.
Though there are homes nearby and occasional pedestrian/auto traffic in front of the home - we did not feel a lack of privacy and everyone we encountered was friendly. Thank you for sharing your home with us, we hope we have opportunity to return in the future.
Please come back and visit soon. (Also, we will have a new cork screw for you waiting. Thanks also for letting us know about that!)
Please come back and visit us again!
lovely and cozy home away from home
We really enjoyed our stay in this cozy house, and regreted that we could not stay longer. For people like us, who likes outdoor activities , this house is ideal: it is surrounded by sights of waterfalls and hiking trails, it has a jaccuzi and mountain river, on top of everything there are plenty of bicycles to explore sight seeings. It felt like luxury camping in the middle of forest. Thank you dear owners:)))
Fantastic, Inspiring Location
Great place to stay, with all the comforts of home
