vacation rental description

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!

traveler reviews for this index cabin rental

Fantastic, Inspiring Location

Review submitted: May 19, 2014   Date of arrival: May 10, 2014

We used this rental for a movie shoot, so it was not a typical rental, but the location was just fantastic. You are in between gorgeous river views and a sheer cliff, that seems like something out of a storybook. Cast members noted that they had not seen a location like this outside of Norway, yet this was actually a very easy, brief drive about an hour outside Seattle. I would love to visit again as an actual guest, based on the scenic views. The house itself was very well-kept and homey. It is someone's home, so that seemed to make sense. Definite 5 star rating. Thanks to these guys for being so open to an art project in their home!

Owners response: After asking some pointed questions about content and receiving the right answers that this was a legit and family friendly operation, we were happy to have these respectful guests use our location for their movie. We agree that the scenery is spectacular and many people remark that they can't believe such a place exists only an hour from a major west coast city. We hope to see them back when they are not working!

Romantically enchanting

Review submitted: November 5, 2013   Date of arrival: August 11, 2013

I have been here too many times to count. I just keep coming back. This is hands down the best place to stay if you love the outdoors. The Skykomish river is literally in the front yard. There are tons of hiking trails nearby. Stevens Pass is a few minutes away. From the front porch Mount Index is breathtaking, especially when covered in snow. The hammock and fire pit are perfect in the summer, as are snowball fights and the hot tub in the winter. For those who aren't into the outdoors, there's a huge tv with cable and tons of movies, a wii, and non-electronic games too. The house is great for groups, couples, or solo. Speaking of couples, I always thought winter would be my favorite time to visit, but that all changed this summer. I got engaged during my most recent visit to A Riverside Retreat. I couldn't imagine a more appropriate place for this to have taken place. It's a moment I will never forget. The setting is perfect, no matter what you're looking for. After your first visit to A Riverside Retreat, you won't be able to stay away either.

Owners response: Michelle - thanks for your thorough review and congratulations on your engagement! You're welcome back at any time.
