Setting and Atmosphere:
The Glacier Guest Suites is a private mountainside hideaway facing Mount Baker and the North Fork Nooksack River.
Sited near the center of our 100-acre homestead and adjacent to our residence, our lodging rooms were created especially for visitors seeking non-commercial
lodging alternatives and are suited for romantic escapes, a private get-away, or as a base for adventuring in the North Cascades. Guests are always assured of
their privacy and the quiet, peaceful surroundings of mountains, forest, river, and meadow.
Each of our rooms include large view windows with a panoramic view of Mt. Baker and the Nooksack River Valley. Visitors repeatedly emphasize the peace and serenity they have found here. No matter what the weather, there is always a spectacular view, be it of a sunrise or moonrise over Mount Baker, the evening alpenglow on the glaciers, or the ever changing clouds and mist moving over the North Fork Nooksack River valley.
Our entrance is located at 8040 Mount Baker Highway (Mile Post 27.5). Access to our lodging is via a posted private gravelled access road that is a little steep and bumby at times. If you have questions on locating us please click on LODGING LOCATIONS,e-mail or phone.
