Thank you for a wonderful stay. The view was incredible and that gorgeous stone fireplace made for a cozy evening after time in the hot tub. Your place is just beautiful!

THANK-YOU so much for a wonderful stay at your gorgeous place!! Your beautiful South Fork truly knocked our socks off!

Early in the morning with the sky striped in pink, we were out on the deck and Rod kept saying, "This is unbelievable!!"

A charming and breathtaking place for visitors to stay.

Bears Den

Open the door of The Bears Den to find a spectacular 650sq ft ground floor rental apartment, that has just been renovated. With large windows offering an unparalleled view of the Skykomish River and Philadelphia ridge.

This is a perfect hideaway for anyone to just think, dwell, be inspired, connect, and get away from the monotony of life. Come on in, put away your luggage, hang up your coats, and put your feet up after a long day of hiking or skiing.

(You can also rent The Eagles Perch upstairs, which allows you to accommodate up to 8 in total. Both apartments enter into a foyer, then two separate doors give you access to your own private dwelling).

Living Room:

A leather sleeper sofa and chair face the beautiful rock framed propane fireplace. On top of the mantel is a wonderful flat screen tv, that can be seen from the sofa, chairs or the bed. There is a dvd player with movies you can use, and a cd player if you wish to play some music.


To provide a tranquil environment for our guests, no telephone is provided within the studio. If, however, you can't escape business, free WiFi is available and both Verizon and A&T cellular phones work within the studio.


With views out over a beautiful expansive river you can enjoy barbequeing on the deck or cooking in the kitchen. Come sit and cook in your own spacious kitchen, with a full size cook stove, oven, microwave, and fridge. There is also a bbq on the deck.

The cabinets and drawers are filled with all you need to cook your special meal. You will be able to sit inside at a high table, so you can view the river while eating, or, enjoy sitting out on the deck and become mesmerized by the sound of the river.

In the morning you can make coffee, tea, hot chocolate or cider, which is provided in packets, so you can make what you desire at any time.


Luxuriate in the comfy king size pillow top bed, and fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the river drifting by. Bed made with soft linens, warm blankets and comforter to keep you warm and cozy. There are lots of fluffy pillows to use.

Two night stands with table lamps and an Ipod / alarm clock / docking station are provided, so you can recharge your Ipod or Iphone or play your own music. Bookcases filled with tons of books you can read and enjoy.


After a long day of fun activities you'll want to walk into a shower with seat, and luxuriate under the warm water. Bathroom is equipped with shower, toilet, sink, and washer/dryer. Bath towels, hot tub towels, bathing soap, shampoo and hair dryer are all provided.


There is a very large deck, that runs the whole length of your studio and looks out over the river, with views of the river coming down and going by. The studio is on the bend of the river. Framed by Philadelphia hill and some of the cascade mountains up the river. There is a Softub on the deck to soak in, enjoy the view, and relax in.

Chairs and table are provided outside as well.

The bbq for grilling up your meals is on the deck. Smoking is permitted on the deck only and please use the ashtrays provided.

I hope you will feel that all the creature comforts of home will be here. So just settle in, relax and enjoy this little bit of paradise. If you need any help or advice, I live right next door.
