Most of my blogs have been related to inspections and/or local color. This one is slightly different in that it showcases a vacation rental (that I own) near magnificent Mt. Baker in Northwest Washington. The home is located in a gated community two miles East of the town of Glacier. This is the jumping off point for the Mt Baker ski area and the trails and peaks of the North Cascades National Park/Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and the Mt. Baker National Recreation Area.
This area is a year round playground with something for everyone. The community, Snowline, has many amenities including playground for the kids, swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, picnic grounds and a large recreation building. It is the closest lodging to world famous Mt. Baker ski area.
The house is 1700 square feet of pine panelling, hot tub, stone gas fireplace, 2 queensize beds, one kingsize bed and a double hideabed. It has a complete kitchen, washer and dryer, wraparound deck, and gas barbecue. . .and it is completely furnished including linens.
The home is rentable year round. More information and reservation availability can be found at http://mtbakerlodging.com/index.php?page=property&Property_Number55 . This last photo is a foreshortened view of Mt. Baker from the highway in Glacier.
As always, thanks for reading.
