We’re excited to share with you a brand new cabin - Little Wolf Cabin, located in Maple Falls, just 40 min from Mt. Baker and a perfect weekend getaway for hikers and skiers or snowboarders. And it’s pup friendly!
Little Wolf Cabin
Little Wolf Cabin is named after all its cool wolf-themed artwork. This cabin is beautifully designed with a touch of Scandinavian, modern, and boho style, and I love the white walls and beautiful wood paneling. There is plenty of room for a family or group of friends (up to six guests), including a cozy loft bedroom and separate downstairs bedroom with king and queen beds. There’s a gas fireplace which heats up the cabin quickly after a cold day of skiing, without having to fiddle around with wood logs and smoke. The charming kitchen is fully stocked, and we cooked all our meals during our stay, but the owner gives recommendations if you want to eat out. The cabin has numerous trees surrounding it, giving you a sense of privacy and beautiful nature.
This cabin welcomes dogs, with a dog bowl, towel, and treats (the host Mish is a big dog lover and has her own fluffy Samoyed).
Things To Do
This cabin is located near the Mount Baker area in the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. In the winter, you can go skiing, snowboarding, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, or even hiking. In the summer, it’s perfect for hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, and fishing. Dogs are welcome to join along the many hikes of Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Or just feel free to lounge around the cabin and watch TV with some hot cocoa.
Since our legs were super sore after a hard day of skiing, we just took a casual stroll by Maple Creek Loop, which is nearby Little Wolf Cabin. This easy trail features the quintessential PNW forest with ferns and moss, a bridge over a beautiful river, and a lovely waterfall.
Mt. Baker is one of the snowiest places in the world, with the highest average annual snowfall of any resort in the world (641 inches!). This mountain has been on my bucket list for a while, so we had to go skiing there!
It was a beautiful day with fresh powder. Definitely get there early as this is a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders, and parking space is limited. While some people make a day trip to Mt. Baker all the way from Seattle by waking up at 5 a.m., staying at Little Wolf Cabin is perfect for those like me who prefer to sleep in a little more and have a hot breakfast.
Mt. Baker has one of the most reasonably priced lift tickets - around $80 for adults and $50 for kids. Tickets are only available as in-person purchases for the day (no online or advanced day tickets), and we had no problems quickly getting the tickets. There are two areas to ski, White Salmon (mostly blues and blacks) and Heather Meadows (mix of greens, blues, and blacks). We stayed at Heather Meadows as it’s more beginner friendly, but we hope to be back soon to check out White Salmon soon.
