Ski season’s going to start before you know it, and you might be dreaming of a crash pad for you and your buddies as you hit the slopes. This property for sale in Baring, right on the south fork of the Skykomish River, has enough room for an entire ski colony, with three homes, plus a shop, a barn, and a garage with another loft above spread out across six parcels. A central covered hot tub makes it fully ready for winter adventures.
The cabins themselves span generations, with the oldest—and smallest, at 560 square feet—one built in 1940. The most recent is from 1970, and isn’t too much bigger, at 640 square feet. While they’re both quaint in their own ways, neither are about roughing it; they’re equipped for year-round living, with full kitchens, cozy fireplaces, and even satellite TV.
The main house is a midcentury rambler looking right out over the water, and while it’s not exactly a cabin, it certainly draws design inspiration from one. A vaulted ceiling is covered in wood paneling, and a dramatic river-rock fireplace anchors the living room. While it’s been updated recently, it keeps the 1958 geometry, with gently sloping ceilings and sleek window banks throughout.
But it’s possible the barn is the big draw for some: It’s licensed for cannabis processing. Do with that what you will.
