End your evening on a high note with a peaceful soak beneath the stars in the private hot tub.
Morning coffee is best enjoyed outside on one of the small private decks, overlooking the surrounding woodlands and wildlife. Thanks to the home's location at the end of a small cul-de-sac with Snohomish County property on one side and a community buffer behind, you'll enjoy peace and quiet with ample privacy!
Back inside, head up to the loft family room to enjoy a movie on the 52-inch flat-screen Smart TV with Roku, Netflix and 5.1 theater surround sound system. The upstairs loft also hosts a stereo with Pandora and other internet stations so you can jam to your favorites tunes! A huge second bedroom is just off this space, housing 2 queen beds and a full bathroom just outside.
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.
