We are located in the north cascades in a town of 150 people. This little jewel has mountains all around, a river that runs through town, rock walls and plenty of trees, trails and fresh air. We have a class 5 river in the spring and plenty of river guided trips. Before warned we don't have gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants, malls and stop lights. Everyone that has come here has commented on what a slice of heaven we have. Come see for yourselves.
“A friend had his wedding at the River House in Index, WA. The nearest hotels are in Monroe, which is 30-45 minutes away, depending on traffic. Most of the other properties on Airbnb are for cabins which do not make a lot of sense for a single traveler or a couple without kids. A Stone's Throw was perfect. It is a block or two from the River House venue. Lynn and David were excellent hosts. You basically have the upstairs to yourself, which consists of the bedroom, full bath, and a living room with tv and internet. Lynn also stocks the mini fridge with fresh breakfast snacks every morning. The description and photos were spot on. I was able to come and go without any issues. There are also many outdoor activities within minutes. I am not much of a hiker but I was able to do introductory hikes at nearby Heybrook Lookout and Heybrook Ridge. Lynn and David have lived in Index for decades and are happy to help you with activities, restaurants, etc. if you need it. Great trip!”

“This trip was absolutely FANTASTIC! The place was as described but the best part for me was the location. It is FAR from everything which is what we wanted. Plenty of hiking nearby. Bridal Veil Falls is a MUST! If you enjoy hiking, you will love everything about this trail. Outdoor Adventure is literally 3mins away and we went on an amazing whitewater rafting trip. The hospitality was second to none. They were extremely kind and sweet. Aside from that, Ken and Molly recommended a stellar Tarot Card Reader that is from Index and is very reasonably priced (just $1 per card - average of 15 cards pp) and she spends about 20-25 mins reading your cards. There were a total of 5 ladies in our group. She came to the house and read all of our cards. It was a real treat! Especially for the price. Ken and Molly have everything you need for cooking. We made most of our meals at the house. The essentials are there: a wine opener (big must for our group!), pots, pans, silverware and even a fair amount of seasonings and oils for cooking. There's the ability to watch Netflix on the smart tv and plenty of board games and movies which we took advantage of. We also visited Leavenworth and decided to take a night out on the town and went to a little local bar called Bubba's Roadhouse. WE CLOSED THAT SPOT DOWN singing karaoke all night. It was a blast and a must if you are looking to do something fun and not drive all the way back to the city. It is definitely a dive bar but the people who work there are a ton of fun and if you like to sing and have a good time no matter the setting, you'll have fun at Bubba's. All-in-all, the group of ladies I traveled with all had a fabulous time together! Loved the table in the kitchen for drinking wine and sharing stories. Just a fun time all around! Thanks Ken and Molly for letting us use your home!!!”

“This was my second time staying at this cabin and I highly recommend it! I slept up in the loft this time and was impressed with the air mattress and bedding. There's a nice fire pit area and a huge deck that overlooks the river. Although there's no awning over the deck to shield rain, it's great to hang out on during sunny days.”
