Perks for the Parents

This architect-designed Silver Lake home, surrounded by nature, is the ideal family getaway spot in the mountains, with floor-to-ceiling views of the woods and valleys from the bathtub. It is in Maple Falls, Washington. Along with stunning interiors (as pictured) there are landscaped stairs leading down the embankment to an attached dock and swim ladder. The dock is great for fishing and swimming. Fantastic for outdoorsy families. Every room has a view of Silver Lake.

Why Kids Love it

Nightly baths have never been this much fun - toddlers can have playtime in the evening in master bathroom tub with a lake view. There is plenty of water-based fun for older kids too: including fishing and swimming from the dock and a hot tub. The open floor plan provides a space that is welcoming and relaxing, and allows everyone to gather in the same space with ease. Nearby attractions include Silver Lake Park, which has a kid-friendly bike trail, playground, museum, horseshoes and boat, canoe and paddleboard rentals.

Things to Know

About the Location

This cabin is a short drive from Silver Lake in Maple Falls, Washington. It is in a rural area with terrific hiking trails, mountains and lakes. The closest major town is Abbotsford, with Vancouver just over 1.5 hours’ drive away. Bellingham International Airport is 1 hour from the property. It is 15 miles east on Highway 542 of the Snoqualmie National Forest, rich with history and outdoor opportunities. Mt. Baker hosts multiple hiking trails, from easy stretches to “experienced only” trekking. The Pacific Crest trail goes right through the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie Forest. The Mt. Baker Ski Area is 30 miles away, with record snow falls and terrific slopes and trails.

Accommodation Details

This 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home has an open plan living room with a gas fireplace, gourmet kitchen, and spacious dining area. There is also a bedroom with queensize bed and full bathroom on this level. Upstairs there is a bedroom with queensize bed and soaking tub in the main bedroom, plus a full length deck with gas fire ring, hot tub and BBQ, overlooking the lake.

Style Notes

This vacation home received the 2014 Best Residential Wood Design Award, as presented annually by the Canadian Wood Council. With floor-to-ceiling windows and views of Silver Lake from every room, plus luxurious fittings and beautiful carpentry, it makes the most of its natural surroundings while adding a touch of comfort. We love the staircase, the deck and the hot tub.

This is our favorite rental property by far. The home and surrounding environment could not be more beautiful and we had everything we needed for traveling with a preschooler. We will be back!

Ski trails, hiking paths and fresh air fun

Close to Mount Baker, the small community of Maple Falls is around 30 minutes from the Canadian Border and is ideal for a quiet family getaway in the mountains. Skiing is possible in season at the excellent Mount Baker ski station, as is hiking and wildlife watching (look out for Sasquatch!). It is in a rural area with terrific hiking trails, mountains and lakes to enjoy.
