A Cozy Loft Stay in the Central Cascades

Index, WA is the perfect escape from the city. Only an hour and a half drive from Seattle, you are transported into a gorgeous forest environment.

With mountains towering above and the Skykomish River running alongside you, Cyclops cabin nestled into the trees is the perfect place to relax and get outside. A stunningly large and grand window makes you feel like the forest is in the space with you and a lofted bed makes you feel a bit like a kid again.

This tiny home is the perfect spot to cuddle up with your loved ones or a wonderful jump-off point for all the adventures in the area - from skiing at Stevens Pass only 45 mins away, heading up the multiple hiking trails only a 10-minute drive from your cabin or throwing your climbing shoes on and hitting the world-famous Index Walls, you have tons of options.
