What Past Guests Are Saying
This review is for Snowater Unit #407.
We had an awesome time at the Snowater Resort! Our weekend completely exceeded our expectations.
I hadn’t realized when we rented the condo, that all the amenities of the resort came with it. There’s a Club House, Recreation Building, Adult House, multiple tennis courts, basketball court, beautiful nature trails along the Nooksack River, etc. They have two indoor swimming pools, Jacuzzis, sauna, racket ball courts, a pool table, ping pong table, card tables, two play fields, a playground, lots of places to just to hang out outside of your own personal condo, etc. I'm not sure what the resort is like in different seasons, but when we were there (low season) the whole feeling was very peaceful and relaxed. We only saw maybe 20 other people during our entire 3-day stay there. Everyone we met very kind and friendly.
The condo was very cozy, looked out into the forest (very peaceful), and had everything we needed. The gas fireplace was warming and romantic. The kitchen was very well stocked. They have 15+ different games. The décor was definitely 70’s-influenced with mostly older furnishings, but since that’s my favorite decade, I didn’t mind. =) It’s not fancy-shmancy, but more comfortable and laid back in feel. We also liked that there were two cozy couches for hanging out in front of the fireplace.
If you’re someone who likes to be plugged in, it’s important to note that the TV only plays Dvds, and you need to bring your own movies. Also, you can only get wifi by going to the Club House (or sitting outside the Club House). There’s no cell phone reception whatsoever, but there are free local phones in a few places on the resort property, and a few phone booths you can use for long distance calls. All of these things were huge plusses to us (and many guests who wrote in the guest book). We liked having a break from the phone and interwebs. We came home more relaxed and centered than we’ve felt in a long time.
Kai, our contact at Baker accommodations was incredibly kind and responsive – a joy to work with. The people in the resort’s on-site office were equally helpful.
The biggest surprise and joy for us was the incredible beauty and all the fun things to do, right outside our doorstep. The Horseshoe Bend hike is about a 5-10 minute drive away, and only takes an hour or two to walk. It’s a relatively easy hike, right along the amazing Nooksack River. The Nooksack falls were great. The hike up to view Mt. Baker was fantastic (we took the Wells Creek hike). The drive up to the ski area to get a 360 degree view Mt. Shuksan and other surround mountains blew our minds! It felt like we were in the Swiss alps. Since we were there in June, we weren’t able to get higher up to artist’s Point, but I’ve heard it feels like you’re on the top of the world. We just couldn’t believe no one in Seattle has ever told us that we should needed to go Mount Baker and see the incredible beauty there. Still, it’s nice to find surprises after having lived in the Northwest for 16 years.
If you’re considering Mount Baker, we urge you to go! There’s skiing, snow boarding, snow shoeing, hiking, rock climbing, bird watching, camping, white water kayaking or rafting, fishing, bicycling, mountain biking, scenic drives, eating at Milano’s restaurant, hanging out at the (fantastic) Wake ‘N Bakery Café, driving around to other small towns like Maple Falls, and tons of relaxing things to do at the resort, as well. Go, have fun, and tell us how you liked it.
