Scandinavian mountain home in the North Cascades
Built in 1990, this Scandinavian-style mountain home is nestled on the last developed parcel before entering the North Cascades National Park—just two hours or so from Seattle. Surrounded by ancient cedars and firs, private trails and a stone’s throw from the Cascade River, the cabin provides a cozy refuge from the frantic pace of modern life. The updated one-bedroom, one-bathroom home is situated on a five-acre lot, offering commanding views of nearby glacial peaks.
Fully remodeled in 2020 to include a custom kitchen with marble counters, a stunning Japanese-tiled bathroom, new plumbing and solar power, the 694-foot home is turnkey. Across the front patio and through a set of French doors, you’ll enter into the light and bright living room—complete with a wood-burning fireplace in the corner and skylights overhead. Beyond that, the spacious kitchen features plywood cabinets, a gas range and stunning territorial views of the evergreen treetops just outside.
The lofted bedroom upstairs sits under an a-frame roofline, surrounded by built-in shelving and beautifully aligned with a picture window to ensure an idyllic view of the Pacific Northwest landscape as soon as you wake up. Currently utilized as a short-term rental for six months per year, the home enjoys a 95% occupancy rate and is projected to make $80,000 in revenue for 2022.
