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. Added a handrail for safety. Looks good, too, with rustic twig 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.
6/2012 Purchased the lot at the corner of 640th Lane and Index Creek Rd, providing more privacy for Whispering Waters.
10/12 The Baring Store is under new ownership. Prime rib dinner every Saturday night 5pm.
2/13 Sky Cabins has two sets of complimentary snow shoes & treking poles. Snow shoeing is easy and no other equipments needed except warm boots that keep the snow out. When the snow level is low, nearby forest service roads are great for snowshoeing and most have great views.
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 current info.
Nov 2013 – Electric fireplace now in Sky Beach Cabin. It has a realistic looking flame with glowing logs and embers. Perfect for a rainy or snowy evening.
June 2014 – Improved 5Mbps WiFi at Mountain View and Sky Beach Cabin. Netflix & Pandora now available on the living room TV’s at all three cabins.
October 2014 – No longer accommodating dogs at Whispering Waters. Sky Beach Cabin remains dog friendly with an additional charge ($15/dog/night – multiple night discount). For those with allergies to dogs there may be some lingering allergens for a while, so Mountain View is the best choice for those with dog allergies.
Lower midweek rates start after Labor Day. $20/night discount for 5th and 6th nights (discounted weekly rate when booking 7 nights); excluding holidays, July & August.
10/2014 New quiet stainless steel refrigerator and dishwasher at Sky Beach Cabin.
11/14 New Lazy Boy reclining sofa at Whispering Waters romantic getaway cabin. Great for relaxing while watching the smart TV with Netflix or listening to romantic music on Pandora.
12/19/14 Stevens Pass open for skiing. $50 ski lift vouchers with cabin stay.
1/14/15 Roof added over the hot tub at Sky Beach Cabin. Now all three cabins have covered hot tubs providing a more pleasurable hot tub experience during the rainy season.
2/15 – Spring has arrived early! Discounted rates at Whispering Waters through April. $135 midweek, $165 weekend nights for two people/one bed, two night minimum stay. The cabin can accommodate up to four people with additional charge.
February 2015 is the last month Mountain View is available for renting, as it is being sold. A few midweek days left at discounted rate of $145.
2/15 Log king headboard and cedar drawer units at Sky Beach Cabin – looks great! Updated photo soon.
