April 2012 - Remodeled the stairwell going to Whispering Water’s loft by removing part of the solid wall that had been between the sitting area and the stairs, allowing more light and openness in the stairwell and adding a handrail. Looks good, too, using the rustic balusters.
4/2012 Replaced the failed windows in Mountain View’s living room (the ones that looked “dirty”). Now the beautiful view of Mt Baring is unmarred by cloudy windows.
6/15/2012 Purchased the lot at the corner of 640th Lane and Index Creek Rd, providing more privacy for those staying at Whispering Waters.
8/24/12 Whispering Waters is now pet friendly, with up to two quiet, flea-free, well behaved dogs allowed. Dogs have been coming to Sky Beach Cabin for three years with minimal problems and we want to be able to accommodate more dog owners. Mountain View remains “pet free” for those with allergies to dogs.
10/16/12 A dusting of snow on the mountains. The rumor is that Stevens Pass will open early this year. We have Stevens Pass cabins to rent.
10/20/12 The Baring Store is under new ownership and closed until Nov 2 while being renovated. Update: Jimmy makes great pies – best blackberry pie I’ve ever had.
2/3/13 Sky Cabins has two sets of snow shoes & treking poles available with no charge. There is enough snow on the forest service roads in the Baring area for snow shoeing at this time. Snow shoeing is easy and no other equipments needed except a pair of warm boots that keep the snow out.
2/24/13 New sofa at Whispering Waters romantic getaway cabin. The sofa has two built-in recliners – great for watching the new smart TV with Netflix on demand.
9/30/13 First snow on mountain tops – about a month early.
11/11/13 Off-season rates now in effect for November (excluding Thanksgiving week), starting at $125/midweek night. Get away for a relaxing romantic cabin stay before the hectic holiday season starts.
11/16/13 First snow of the season in Baring - about 1″. Stevens Pass Ski/Snowboard area opens today. Winter is here ! Go to www.StevensPass.com for all the current info. $50 lift ticket vouchers available with cabin stay.
Nov 2013 – New electric fireplace in Sky Beach Cabin . It has a realistic looking flame, glowing logs and emits a nice soft heat. Perfect for a rainy or snowy evening.
