Hi Heidi,

We had a great time at the cabin. We were greated by 2 bucks who lounged near the hammock most of the afternoon. We were disappointed we weren't able to see any airplanes land, but enjoyed walking around the landing strip. I hope we left the place in order.

Good overall with some caveats

  • 4 of 5

The cabin itself was fantastic. Very relaxing and close enough to Slate Peak to make a nice little day trip. Unfortunately there were also a few issues. The grill was filthy and caked with grease, to the point that when we tried to use it the grease caught on fire and we needed to use baking soda to put it out. We cleaned the grill ourselves for the sake of future guests because it's a safety issue and we'd hate to see a fire. Lastly, there was a used tampon applicator on the bathroom counter next to the sink---definitely not something you'd want to find upon arrival. (Perhaps left by the cleaning crew?) Other than those two issues the stay was awesome and we would return. Lovely area and the cabin was quite comfortable and beautiful.

it was quiet and exactly as the description said

  • 4 of 5

It was exactly what we were expecting from the pictures. There were more neighbours then we thought there would be. But it was still nice. Get the groceries in Winthrop, as the Mazama store was quite expensive. The beds were comfortable. And Ginger "the canyon" dog came every day to visit.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was located close to the sno park so we could ride our snowmobiles right to the mountain. Not alot of parking for our trucks and trailers was the only issue but we figured it out. The cabin is cozy and has everything you need. Location is beautiful. We will definitely stay there agian!

A rural gem in the North Cascades!

  • 5 of 5

Lost River Cabin is a delightful, cozy retreat (and pet-friendly!!). With the surrounding wilderness, access to Winthrop and proximity to trail heads, it is an ideal place to unwind and experience some adventure. The cabin is immaculate and the kitchen is well-stocked. The wood burning fireplace adds an elemental ambiance to an atmosphere that already promotes a relaxed 'down-shifting' mode. The owners are superior hosts; gracious, friendly and always accommodating.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a great weekend of relaxation and fun starting with a beautiful drive over the North Cascades highway. We went on a 3 mile hike in the misty rain to some falls and then had a delicious dinner at Mazama Country Inn. That cabin was cozy and warm with the wood burning stove and all the amenities we could ask for. I would love to stay there again.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lost River cabin for five days. The cabin itself is wonderful and met all of our expectations. It was clean, well laid out and provided all the amenities we needed. The owners of the cabin were very gracious in answering our questions and providing suggestions for our anniversary dinner.

There are great hiking and biking trails minutes away from the cabin. We thoroughly enjoyed those trails and recommend hiking the Rainy Lake Pass. There is plenty to do for families with kids of any age. I was able to do some fly fishing nearby and caught a couple of rainbows and cutthroat trout.

I would recommend this cabin to anyone. The area has many activities to enjoy and we look forward to visiting again in the future.

From the Owner

We always wanted a cabin in which to share with family and friends. It's in a great recreation area of Washington state and it is quite different from our primary home. We enjoy the outdoors, the sunny weather, and the beauty of all four seasons.
