Visit the Bear Crossing, a log cabin in the mountains near Cle Elum, Washington. This tranquil log cabin is located in Washington’s beautiful North Central Cascades, where you and your loved ones may get away from it all. You’ll be able to fully disconnect from the outside world and take in the stunning natural scenery during your holiday. South Cle Elum is only 5 miles away from this spacious log cabin that can sleep 7. Even though you may easily stop by for a lunch at Smokey’s Bar-B-Que (albeit four-wheel drive and snow chains may be required during the winter), you’ll feel peaceful and secluded because the only things around the log home are pine trees and distant mountains. In the colder months, you can come in from a day on the slopes and shake off the snow.
The warmth of the fireplace, the wood paneling and beams, and the coziness of the surroundings are all hallmarks of a genuine mountain log cabin. Rather than sitting at your desk and worrying about work emails, you may relax on the leather couches in the living room while watching old VHS and DVDs on the flatscreen TV. This log cabin is not a pet-friendly accommodation. In the kitchen of this log cabin, you’ll find modern stainless steel equipment and a gas burner, which stands in stark contrast to the rest of the home’s rustic aesthetic. You can have some appetizers at the breakfast bar for three, and then go to the bench-style table by the door for the main course. You can choose to eat inside, surrounded by log cabin knickknacks like crossed skis and a coat rack made of wood, or you can go outside and enjoy your meal by the fire pit while gazing at the stars. The convenience of a dishwasher can be appreciated in any dining establishment.
With its three bedrooms, this log cottage can comfortably accommodate seven people, including up to six adults. The master bedroom, complete with king-size bed, is located on the second floor, along with a second bedroom with a queen-size bed. The last room contains a bunk bed configured as two single beds. There are two bathrooms in the house, so everyone can freshen up before a day of pool or adventuring.
Small businesses and cafes in South Cle Elum provide a pleasant environment in which to while away the time. Relaxing by the Yakima River is a great way to take in the scenery, but don’t let yourself get too wrapped up in the tranquility of the water that you forget to appreciate the landscape. Hiking routes are available in the summer, while in the winter, ski resorts, snowmobile paths, and other winter sports may be found at Snoqualmie Pass, located 29 miles to the north.
Horseback riding tours in the Washington Cascades are a great way to go back to nature and may be arranged in the town of Cle Elum. Anybody searching for a break or any family with kids who want to get out of their comfort zones will benefit from this activity. Washington has full of exciting activities, but a horseback ride through the Cle Elum wilderness is one of a kind, giving riders a fresh perspective and a deeper respect for the natural world.
