We stayed in the Foreman's cabin for 3 nights in July. We found Christine very helpful in advising us about what we could do around the area and quickly set off on a walk up Sauk mountain. We had 3 beautiful days of walking in the North Cascades in brilliant sunshine.
The cabin was very clean, the kitchen was well equipped and it had air conditioning. It wasn't too hot when we were there so we didn't really need the air conditioning but we did use the fan in the bedroom one evening.
The cabins are 2 fields away from the Inn and they are surrounded by woods and a river which has beavers that we didn't manage to have time to look for.
We were supposed to stay in the inn for one night due to the cabin being occupied, however when the guest didn't show up Eleanor let us stay in the same cabin again. Although we didn't stay in the inn, from what we saw, it appeared comfortable and Eleanor was very attentive and kind. My only observation which made the inn less ideal for us was the night time curfew was early and we had to rush to make sure we were back in time after a long day's walking. So I preferred the cabin overall.
