Port Angeles house description

'Like waking from a dream'... that's a typical reaction to this truly magical, romantic property. Inside and out...when you arrive, you will realize you have found a little piece of heaven in one of the most remarkable places on earth. Check-in is a breeze, and each booking is given meticulous attention to detail.

Imagine looking out a twenty foot wall of windows to a soaring vista of sparkling emerald water and the magnificent Olympic peaks. Our home is meant for romance, with a private setting nestled in the trees.

This intimate waterfront home on Lake Sutherland near Port Angeles allows easy access to one of the worlds most untouched National Parks and all it's grandeur...glacial fed waterfalls, old growth hiking trails, pristine pacific beaches, breath taking Hurricane Ridge, salmon-run Sol Duc and Elwha Rivers, gorgeous Lake Crescent, renowned Hoh rainforest, and the diverse wildlife of the worlds largest temperate rainforest.

Built by a cabinet maker, the house embraces you with the warmth of knotty pine. With an emphasis on intimacy, the home is luxuriously equipped with special artistic touches in every corner to make your stay memorable in every way. In the morning, lie in bed and watch wisps of fog dance through the distant valleys in the far cliffs. Pack light, and let your hosts provide an unforgettable getaway that offers year round reasons to book your anniversary, honeymoon, or family getaway. Spectacular Lake Crescent and Marymere Falls are just minutes away. We offer a 'things to do list', but don't forget to schedule time to simply unwind in this peace of paradise. Soothe in the hot tub, dine overlooking the lake, relax in the hammock from one of the most private and secluded settings on the lake.

Off season provides splendid lakefront solitude for writers or artists, or anyone longing simply to put up their feet and unwind. During the fall, layers of yellow aspens grace the far ridges. Snow capped mountains enhance the jaw dropping view winter and spring.

A limited number of neighbors share occasional access to shore.

                          Car: Necessary

                          Outstanding location for exploring the Olympic National Park, Pacific beaches, Lake Crescent, and of course Lake Sutherland. There isn't another property like ours. When you arrive, and take it all in, you will realize you have found a little piece of heaven... truly magical. Perhaps the most obvious attraction is the setting on the lake, and the view across to Storm King Ridge (nothing quite like it). Besides all the activities, this is the place for unwinding, deep breathing, first honeymooning, second honeymooning, serious romancing.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: My wife and I have decades in the hospitality business, with an undergraduate degree from Michigan State University in Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management, and management experience at several well known bed and breakfasts on the Northern California coast. As well, we are both successful, professional artists and collectors, which shows throughout the house. As your hosts, we are serious about assuring that you will be pinching yourself during your stay! We know the importance of all the luxury touches and attention to details. Each and every booking, no matter its length, is considered with equal importance. As well, because we live very near by, we are able to pay attention to your needs throughout your stay, while respecting...first and foremost...your privacy. It is, simply, our goal to make your stay as memorable as possible. Another benefit, one we have learned is often much appreciated by our guest, is our knowledge of the Park and surrounding area. There is a lot to do and see, and we are happy to give custom advice at each and every request. A great list of web links and personal suggestions is available prior to your visit, and any special requests are gladly entertained. It is our goal to show both our hospitality professionalism, and our hearts.

                          Why the Owner Chose Port Angeles:
                          We chose this property because of it's luxurious, inspiring beauty, and profound serenity. It truly is a magical place with pristine water, snow capped mountains, crisp clean air, abundant wildlife and old growth nature. It is a piece of heaven in a spectacular part of our amazing planet.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          This place can't be beat for: 1) Exploring the Olympic National Park. The proximity is fantastic. Some of the best hikes are nearby. Spectacular waterfalls and old growth virgin forests dripping with moss and ferns (Olympic National Park holds the worlds largest temperate rain forest). 2) Enjoying an incredible view right outside your window. Our 'wall of windows' looks out over a jaw-dropping vista of water and mountain scape. 3) Our attention to detail, and to bending over backwards to accommodate you. Our guest book gushes with thanks and praise. 4) All the other things to do...day trip to Victoria BC from a ferry right out of Port Angeles, river rafting the famous Elwha, fishing off the dock, or chartering out of Neah Bay...it goes on and on! We know what there is to do, and are happy to help you plan your moments.
