The History of the Cabin at Mount Pilchuck

The lodge you will be staying in was originally constructed as a ski rental building during the glory years at the ski area on Mount Pilchuck. After the ski area was shut down in the late 70's, the lodge was brought down the mountain by truck, but there was no way to get it past the bridge on the highway. So it sat by the side of the road until Gayle Whitsell purchased it and had it moved to his lot on the river. There it sat on blocks for two decades, until his son Brad decided to turn it into a rental lodge for those who want to get away from their busy lives for a few days of peaceful rest.
