In an effort to take a break from our busy schedules we headed to our favorite place in Washington state- the North Cascades for some much needed R & R. We stayed in a one bedroom cabin on Lake Patterson and enjoyed a quiet and restful weekend. We hiked, played in the water, hung out and celebrated thirteen years of marriage in addition to Father’s Day. Although we have stayed at Sun Mountain Lodge in the past, we have never stayed in these particular cabins. We had such a fantastic time I cannot wait to come back in the Winter to see it covered in a blanket of snow and to go ice fishing.
With a busy young child we appreciated the large grassy open spaces at Lake Patterson, just perfect for baseball, tag or soccer. By day we could rent a paddle boats or play in the water and by night we roasted marshmallows by the fire and looked at the night sky. Since the cabins are a part of Sun Mountain Lodge we still had easy access to the hotel’s restaurant, pool, hot tub and common areas as any guest of the hotel would.
