We finally made it up to Cascade for a little family "camping" trip. My in-laws have a really nice cabin that they let us use, so it was nice that we didn't have to rough it with a six month old. The best part is that their place is only about an hour's drive- but the stillness makes it feel like your are much further away. Just far away enough to forget about it all for a little while. We all really love it up there!
