Location Details

There's no better choice for outdoor lovers, as Skykomish is a hiking, snowshoeing, backcountry adventure paradise near various state parks, wilderness areas, and even a popular supply drop for the Pacific Crest Trail. Take relaxing strolls along the river, or get out for some more exciting excursions to get your blood pumping!

Calling all anglers! The nearby Skykomish River and its tributaries are home to chinook, coho and pink salmon, along with steelhead and bull trout - a true fisherman's dream! Although 'The Owl's Nest' is not waterfront, it is just a short walk through the woods via a county land trail to hundreds of yards of prime fishing waters. As an added bonus, the Reiter Steelhead hatchery is located a quarter mile upstream, popular for recreational fishing

When you're not hanging out on the river, there's a plethora of other fresh air adventures you can embark on! Eagle Falls is a short drive from the property and features a swimming hole perfect for the whole family. Hit the trails in Henry M. Jackson Wilderness Area, go mountain biking or hiking up to Wallace Falls and Wallace Lake, or venture further to explore the beautiful Alpine Lakes and Wild Sky Wilderness. You'll also find Lake Serene and the Bridal Veil Falls Trailhead just a short drive away! There are many additional hikes in the area for you to explore during your stay.

In the snowy months, this recreational paradise transforms into a winter wonderland! Just 34 miles away, you'll find the Stevens Pass Ski Area, which is a 1,125-acre winter sports complex with 37 runs, a terrain park, night skiing and a summertime bike park!

Too tired from your adventures to cook? No worries! Gold Bar is a quick 2 miles away and offers a wide selection of pizza joints, Mexican restaurants, espresso bars, and many other food and grocery options.

  • Cozy & relaxing getaway.


    Everything was as described and host was very communicative and flexible with questions. Really enjoyed the upstairs entertainment room. Thank you for having the AC on for us on day 1!

  • Cozy, relaxing retreat


    Great retreat into the woods. Hot tub with umbrella (if you don't want to get sprinkled on), gazebo with fire pit and lights (was a lovely way to be outside at night with the rain). House was fully appointed and easy to find things. Full handbook from the owner complete with hiking recommendations. Great communication before, during, and after with the owner!

  • As advertised


    Wife and sister loved hot tub. Pictures online are exactly what we saw. Quiet neighborhood, slept well as beds were comfortable. First stay of this type for us as we were attending a wedding in the area. As others noted neighbor has messy property but we never saw them or heard them. Most houses are well kept. If I have a reason to go back I would stay again. Owner made sure I knew what I needed and was easy to contact. Overall good first home rental. Everyone seemed pleased with the place.

  • Amazing!!


    We loved everything about the Owls Nest! Great location and views. Super cozy and plenty of space for everyone. Who doesn’t want to sit in a hot tub and stare at mountains?!!? All the basics you need are provided, shampoo/conditioner/body wash, oils and spices and more! My only advice would be to grab groceries before you hit town as the local grocery store is very expensive. We would love to return soon! Richard was a great and communicative host.
