Property description

All here at Lake Quinault Vacation Homes! Home of the World famous Colonel Bob and Enchanted Valley Trail. World Class Fishing, Hiking, Biking, Boating, Natural Crystal Hunting, World's largest variety of Mushrooms, Wildlife Viewing, Scenic Views, Worlds largest Trees and Relaxation!

Enjoy Cottage Peaks a privately owned vacation rental nestled on the shores of Lake Quinault in the surroundings of the Olympic National Park. This property overlooks Lake Quinault, towered by the majestic Olympic mountains. This breath taking view of Lake Quinault includes wide open starry nights and year round viewing of the moon rising from behind the mountains leaving them a silhouette, creating a romantic moment.
The months of September-November, the change in color of the Fall foliage is spectacular and mushrooms are galore.
In the winter months you can watch the snow level creep down the mountains creating beautifully capped peaks.

There is an abundance of open lakefront, with room for roaming, campfires and great swimming off the shore or dock. A soft creek flows the property line washing natural crystals from upper valley crystal minds. Chances of finding one or many crystals are in your favor!
Get ready for an adrenaline rush as you witness Eagles soaring, Osprey feeding their young in the nest and otters playfully feeding from the dock as well as a passing beaver on his mealtime journey. The Rosevelt Elk can be viewed on a scenic loop drive around Lake Quinault!

This sanctuary view can be absorbed from almost every room of this lovely home. There is spacious lawn area for yard games and easy access to the lake. Fishing permits are required on the lake and can be purchased at a local mercantile. Hire one of our local Fishing Guides, Hike the nature trails, observe our Rain forest, view the wildlife and just relax! Lake Quinault is known as God's country, for the beauty of our Rainforest. Your visit here will be most memorable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Owners Tom and Brenda Sansom have lived in Lake Quinault since 1975, graduated from Lake Quinault High School and raised a family of three daughters who also all graduated from Lake Quinault High School. Our love for this wonderful place generated from generations of both sides of the family who also lived, schooled and raised families here. With our love for nature, the great outdoors and wildlife, Lake Quinault fulfills all our activity needs. Our greatest joy is to be fortunate enough to share this spectacular vacation area with people from all over the world by providing accommodations for our location visitors. Our four year old grandson says that this is the best place in the whole world!

Why the Owner Chose Quinault:
Cottage Peaks is located in the Olympic National Park and a beautiful temperate rainforest with recorded world largest trees, fern beds and dripping moss. For such a beautiful place there are a minimum of accomodations for the amount of visitor in this area. I wanted to be able to offer a comfortable place for people to stay and have a chance to really enjoy our area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You will benefit from a central location on the water and just be 10 minutes from wildlife, hiking trails and 30 minutes from ocean beaches. Also, 1hr and 15 minutes from Forks, WA (twilight location).
