The Cottonwood Creek Cabin is the perfect mountain retreat when visiting Northeast Washington. The charming town of Chewelah, pop. 2700, is a 20 minute drive away. The easy drive from the Spokane International Airport to the woods where the cabin is located will take just over an hour. You'll be able to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, and watch the wildlife. The location is also a great home base to start an exciting Northeast Washington adventure.

The space
The well-insulated log-sided cabin features its own private drive and parking area. The hardwood maple floors, comfortable bedding and cozy propane-fired enameled heat stove will make you feel at home right away. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, including a gas cook-top and electric oven. The cabin features the art of several local artists, and you'll find information about each one in the Welcome Book. Special amenities include some breakfast items and coffee and tea to start your day; and earth-friendly toiletries, along with comfy robes and slippers. The queen-size pillow-top bed will have high-quality flannel sheets with a down duvet in the winter months, and high thread count cotton sheets in the warmer months.

Along with the gas-fired Jotul heat stove, there is also electric heat controlled with a thermostat. In the warmer months, a ceiling fan over the bed provides a comfortable breeze.

Sit out on the covered deck in the rocking chairs and listen to Cottonwood Creek as it makes its way through the property. There are large picture windows where you might spot a white-tailed deer or a moose on the game trail that runs right in front of the cabin.

Guest access
The cabin has a private fire pit that guests are welcome to enjoy. Firewood and fire-starting supplies are included at no charge.

Other things to note
The very friendly dog, Oliver, will probably greet you when you arrive, tail wagging. He is an outside dog that takes patrolling the property very seriously (when he's not napping, which is most of the time). The elderly cat, Peggy, stays close to home. There are two horses in the front pasture (quite a ways from the cabin) that mostly just eat and look beautiful.

The property location is fairly remote and is located 6 miles from a highway and 1.3 miles off the pavement on a county-service road. The owner's home is located on the property about 400 ft away from the cabin. The closest services are 8 miles away, and the town of Chewelah is 11 miles away. Winter conditions can require an all-wheel drive vehicle and/or snow tires.

Because of the rural location, it is not unusual to lose power, especially during the winter months when a snow-laden branch may fall on a power line. But don't worry! There is a flashlight and battery-powered lantern at the ready in the cabin, and the propane heat stove does not need power to operate. Doesn't that sound cozy? If it looks like the power will be out an extended time (not a usual occurrence), we'll fire up the generator.

The 100+ acre property to the west of us is fenced with electric fencing to contain a herd of buffalo that occasionally make an appearance. The buffalo are cool to see, but touching the electric fence is not so cool, so please keep your distance.

Northeast Washington is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. The southern border of the 1.1 million acre Colville National Forest is about a mile away from the cabin, along with other public lands. In the winter, snowmobile right off the property to access miles and miles of trails.

We decided to leave the big city in 2006 and took a big leap of faith by moving to a rural area in a new state, where we had no job, no family, no friends. It turned out to be the best decision we ever made as we found unsurpassed joy in Chewelah and Northeast Washington. One of the first things we did was decide to build a guest cabin so friends and family could be enticed to make the journey to visit. We, along with Shelly's dad Bill, did most of the construction of the cabin but many friends and family also had a hand in its creation. We are so pleased to be able to share it with guests. We both love the outdoors and all of the amazing outdoor recreation opportunities to be found here in Northeast Washington. We love camping, kayaking and hiking, and are happy to point guests toward some excellent adventures. Shelly spent more than 25 years training horses professionally, and still keeps two horses on the property. We both love the wonderful feeling of eating food we grew, so we keep a large garden where the summer star is the row of delicious raspberries that ripen in July. One of the best things about hosting guests from all over is that by sharing the beauty and unique things to be found in our neck of the woods, we are constantly reminded just how special a place it is.
