Enjoy this ranch-style cedar rambler in Lake Quinault in the heart of the Quinault Rain Forest - Home to the Roosevelt Elk. The home sits on 5.2 acres on the South Shore Road of Lake Quinault (2.5 miles up the Quinault Valley from the Lake Quinault Lodge).
The mountain views are spectacular and the home is perfect for those that love the outdoors as the Quinault River, known for its world class fishery, flows directly behind the property. Our property boasts several resident elk herds, abundant wildlife and is a steelhead fisherman's dream. With four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the home is ready for a family or the next get-away retreat for those wanting out of the city lights to a place where the stars shine and the elk bugle.
The home is recently remodeled with a wood stove insert, hardwood floors and an incredible kitchen with double oven, gas range, stainless steel appliances and floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry. The kitchen was designed for home-canning with deep sinks, long counters and a 6-top gas range.
Two family rooms, large laundry room and mud room, office and large cedar deck with built in propane and Stainless BBQ make this Lake Quinault's #1 get away retreat. Enjoy the large back yard perfect for whiffle ball and complete with a fire pit for those evenings of star watching, strumming the guitar, telling stories, roasting marshmallows and eating smores!
The Rivers Edge also boasts 2 RV hook ups, a large back yard for tent camping and close access to the river's edge - the perfect spot for a family reunion or large gathering.
Also included in this incredible property is a large pasture ready to welcome the horse community. Water trough and feeding station are ready and waiting! Once you ride horseback through the Quinault Rain Forest on the River's Edge - we know you'll be back again and again for an experience of a lifetime.
We are dog friendly! Our labs love Lake Quinault and never tire from chasing sticks and swimming in the river! Bring your dogs and kennel them at night at the dog house provided outside. You'll have trouble getting them to go home after visiting our property so be sure to pack the treats because it might be the only way to trick them into loading up for your trip home. Trust us -our labs like to hide when they see the suitcases heading to the truck!

1.5 mile away from the Rain Forest Resort, home of the World's Largest Spruce Tree. 2.5 miles from the historic Lake Quinault Lodge. The River's Edge is Lake Quinault's #1 Family Retreat!
Year Purchased: 1995
About the owner: The Daniels Family - Corey and Kellie Daniels and our four sons, Cameron (not shown in this picture away at college) Cole, Carson and Casey.
In 2002, Corey and I (both avid outdoor enthusiasts) sold our Sammamish home, quit our jobs and moved to Lake Quinault to escape the 'rat race' and live in God's country where we wanted to raise our boys. Yes, our Seattle friends thought we were crazy (actually they thought we had lost our minds!) until they came to visit and didn't want to leave!
Corey and the boys and I have spent the last several years living the dream until recently when Corey's job forced a move. Determined to keep our little piece of heaven so that we could return as often as possible, we decided that our best option was to share our home with others wanting the same thing we did - to escape the city lights to a place where the stars shine and the elk bugle. It was an easy decision and we only hope you and yours will enjoy it as much as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Quinault: The River's Edge home is Lake Quinault's #1 Get-Away Retreat.
Our property is home to several resident elk herds in the Quinault Valley. The elk are probably our favorite feature and we never get tired of seeing them. Herds as large as 50 roam the Quinault Valley throughout the year. There is nothing better than sitting on our deck with a cup of coffee watching the young elk calves play in our field on a warm summer morning.
Our property is the largest rental property in the Lake Quinault area and we're pleased to be able to share it. Four bedrooms, two baths, two family rooms, a state of the art kitchen, large laundry room, office and the cozy rock fireplace with wood stove insert make this a year-around retreat.
Each season brings a new experience and we are happy to share.
