Melissa, Earl and Red, thank you for the perfect getaway for the weekend. May 25th 2015

The wine was truly appreciated and delicious! South Fork Lodge was the perfect place for us to get away from the city to spend a quiet anniversary. The Lodge was cozy, comfy without being kitschy.The river was a great backdrop for it all. We slept with the window cracked so we could hear it. The recommendations for day hikes was appreciated. We hiked up to Lake Serene. Our favorites were sitting and watching the hummingbirds. The hottub and your adorable wine bottle holder! We will be back!

Thank you for offering up your beautiful cabin for an amazing weekend. December 20th 2014

We were in need of a quiet, relaxing, and warm place and this cabin went above and beyond our expectations! We have stayed in several other cabins and this is definitely a favorite, along with wonderful hospitality! Thanks again, we will be back!

We can't express enough how perfect our weekend here has been. October 13th 2013

My war weary soldier was able to relax and completely forget about the rest of the world. This was just the thing for him on his return from Afghanistan. As we prepare to move from the Pacific Northwest. We will remember this little corner of paradise.

I just stole away my girlfriend for a romantic get away at the South Fork Lodge. October 6 2013

Its beautiful here! I proposed last night at the kitchen table amidst a cabin full of maybe 100 tea candles. The moment was surreal! She said YES and is still in shock as we are packing up to head back to the real world. Melissa, Thank you so much for accommodating us, it was perfect! It really is paradise up here nestled between the mountains and on the river bend. What a wonderful way to start the rest of our lives!!

Thank you for the amazing Birthday stay in your fabulous cabin. September 2013

I absolutely love this place! I will most definitely be back! I think this is where I will be sending my parents for their next Anniversary! Anyways thank you so much!

We came here needing to get away for a little while and left wishing we could stay forever. September 2013

It is so cozy and inviting. The perfect home away from home. Though our stay was brief it was exactly what we needed to relax and recharge. Thank you so much for making it work. It was a trip we won't forget. I'm sure we will be back again. My Mom and Dad might be heading out to see it too! Thanks so much!

Thank you so much for the delightful stay. July 2013

We loved the walks to the falls and our trip to Leavenworth for shopping and golf. The fishing was fun and relaxing and the company very enjoyable! Can't wait to come back again someday!

We had such a nice time staying at South Fork Lodge. July 2013

Being able to look at the river and hear it 24hrs a day was the BEST! Can't wait to stay in the Fall to see all the color and in the winter to play in the snow. Thanks so much for sharing this little slice of heaven with us!

Paige, Bruce and Mandi
The cabin totally exceeded our expectations! July 2013

What a wonderful place this is to relax, refresh and renew! May 2013

The cabin is perfect for 2 to reconnect and celebrate our life. Just sitting in the hot tub in the dark with the river rushing by, the tree's dripping from the rain was magical. Thanks to Melissa for providing such a wonderful place for us and our little dog Lola.

Thanks also to Red who was a great friend to Lola.

We came here as a last stop on our magical honeymoon! March 2013

So far we have stayed in a fancy city hotel, a tree house, and now here!

South Fork Lodge is just what we needed before heading back to work and the daily grind of life. The best thing about the whole trip is that my partner ( now Wife!) planned it all as a surprise. Each destination was a complete mystery until we arrived.

We hope to come back again and loved all the little touches Melissa added to make our stay that much better.

What a wonderful weekend this has been! February, 2013

We really enjoyed the relaxing environment and the soothing sounds of nature. After a long day of snowboarding and skiing this was a very cozy and comfortable place to come home to. The views were stunning and the amenities were more than plentiful. Looking forward to our next visit up.

The cabin itself was clean, spacious and comfortable. Even with our (4) suitcases, plenty of room. The mattress was very comfortable and so were the sheets...

P.S. We love the fireplace!

...Better than advertised... Sept 21st-25th 2012

My wife and I stayed at South Fork Lodge for 5 nights for our anniversary. We considered areas in Arkansas, Montana, Vermont and a couple areas further east in Washington, but settled on this area. A couple of highlights are:

The cabin itself was clean, spacious and comfortable. Even with our (4) suitcases, plenty of room. The mattress was very comfortable and so were the sheets...
The Skykomish River that runs in front of the cabin is beautiful and full of fish. It's easy to wade and there were a good number of 6-8 inch trout in the riffles, and larger trout in the bend of the river, directly in front of the cabin. Most were 12 -14 inch, but the largest caught was in the 18 - 20 inch range.

The view is better than the pictures.

The hiking is plentiful and close. The trailhead for Bridal Falls / Lake Serene is at the beginning of Mt Index River Road. The Bridal Falls Hike is fairly easy...Lake Serene hike is fairly difficult. Lake Serene hike was my wife's favorite hike...ever.

The location is perfect....only 70 or so miles from Seattle, 30 miles or so from Monroe (Adam's Bistro is a nicer restaurant in Monroe that was very good)..and 70 miles or so from Leavenworth...very convenient to restaurants and grocery stores.

The owner...very helpful and very friendly without being intrusive...

The problem...actually, there were no problems...5 days, full of hiking, fishing, exploring and resting...with no problems... When we booked this cabin, neither my wife nor I had been to the area, and we had to rely completely on information we found researching the internet....Now, after seeing everything in person and having a explored the area....we wouldn't want to stay anywhere else...

We will definitely return.
