Forks cabin description

Nestled in the center of 24 acres of lush forest you will find a secluded older cabin that is quaint and clean. You will have privacy with peace and quiet. Nature abounds on the property and birds, elk and deer are occasionally seen in the large yard. There is a nature trail with plant markers for your enjoyment and a quiz , available for young and old. We have recently added a spectacular 1/3 mile trail past huge,moss-covered, cedar logs and magical glens. Bring your walking shoes, it is new and can be muddy in places. Both trails are for easy walking and are well marked.

We are centrally located for the Forks Twilight-saga, the Hoh Rain Forest, Kalaloch and Ruby Beach. The Olympic National Park is on our doorstep. There is world renowned fishing and hunting nearby. Local activities are beach combing, clamming, surfing, hiking, kayaking and river rafting.
