  • Absolutely perfect

    "There was 6 of us. 3 couples. It was absolutely perfect for us. There was plenty of room. We never even used the loft at all. It was a beautiful weekend and we explored the mountains 3 days. Being able to come home to a relaxing cabin and fix coffee etc was wonderful! We definitely would use this cabin again. It was very close to crystal mountain and sunrise. Just a perfect location! Thanks for all the amenities etc. truly amazing! Thanks again."

  • Clean and cozy getaway !!

    "I rented this cabin as a surprise for my boyfriend for his birthday. It was so much more then I expected !! The interior pictures don't even begin to show its beauty. Kathy you did an awesome job with the decor. The kitchen is well organized, and stocked with the small appliances needed for what ever you plan on cooking, lots of utensils, lots of pots and pans, dishes, coffee cups, glasses,bowls toaster, microwave,crock-pot, blender and more. There is also lots of spices in the pantry ,Kathy is a great person to do business with !! she warned us of possible discoloration to the water in the hot tub due to its location etc. we found the water crystal clear and the tub itself clean and comfortable, and we really appreciated her up front honest approach. a pleasure to do business with! And YES we will return !!!!"

  • Family Vacation

    "Three Bears Coho cabin at was perfect for our family getaway this year. The bunkhouse was just what we needed to house our oldest son who was home from college for the weekend with girlfriend in tow. And being that the cabin is dog friendly, we didn’t have to pay the steep dog sitting fees that typically come when we actually manage to get the whole family together for a vacation. The interior of the main cabin is well kept, warm and relaxing but the outside deck with the dining table and chairs was my favorite feature. Morning coffee as the sun was coming up, the sounds of nature at lunchtime, dinner at sunset — there’s nothing quite like eating together outdoors. This vacation was just what our family needed. Everything provided to keep it low stress, enough space to accommodate everyone’s personal needs, cozy enough to bring us together. An experience I hope to have again and again."

  • Return visit. Still very enjoyable.

    "We had a very enjoyable weekend with our kids in this comfortable cabin. We have been several times as a couple for anniversary trips, but this was the first time with kids. The kids loved the hot tub and a short road trip to see DeGoede's bulb farm in Mossyrock. As usual the cabin was very clean and tidy and everything we needed was there. The owner is always very quick to contact us to make all the arrangements. As to be expected with a vacation rental we noted just a couple minor general upkeep things that were due to be done, so I let the owner know and she very promptly thanked me for my comments and let me know when those things were planned to be resolved. We will continue to return in the years ahead!"

Rainier & St. Helens Travel Tips

Relax and Unwind with Southwest Washington Vacation Rentals

The scenic area of southwest Washington offers breathtaking scenery, sandy beaches, small port towns and all the activities of the Northern Cascade Mountains close by. The area is known for its fertile estuaries and centuries-old landmarks. Charted by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in 1805, southwest Washington was considered the most desirable area to settle west of the Rocky Mountains. It now offers a delightful escape from city life for vacationers looking to relax and enjoy the spectacular local scenery.

Washington Vacation Rentals Offer a Variety of Things to Do

The Columbia River offers a host of activities before it reaches the Pacific Ocean, including fishing, swimming and hiking. The Hoh Rain Forest has scenic drives and walks amidst the moss-covered trees and hikers will enjoy the trails around Ledbetter Point State Park. Visitors can rent a boat on Lake Quinault and spend the day fishing, picnicking and relaxing on the water. Wildlife viewing is also plentiful in this unspoiled area.

The whole coastline of southwest Washington has miles of sandy beaches to be enjoyed. Ocean Shores beach has many organized activities for families such as sandcastle competitions, summer festivals, beach buggy rentals, horseback riding, swimming, and the usual surfing and watersports activities. Walking and beachcombing are popular activities at spectacular Ruby Beach with its piles of driftwood. Whale watching is an exciting activity in this area, and many companies at Westport and Ocean Shores offer boat trips to see the Pacific grey whales which migrate along the coast from March to May. More family fun can be enjoyed at the indoor Hoquaim YMCA Waterpark which offers a lap pool and racquetball and basketball courts.

The Climate and Weather at Southwest Washington Ocean Condos

Southwest Washington State is known for its mild but damp climate, largely affected by its proximity to the Pacific Ocean. Ocean shores has summer highs of around 70 F from July through September with very little rainfall in that season. Cooler fall days bring more rainfall when temperatures drop to the mid-50s F. The winters see up to 12 inches of rainfall but has mild temperatures of 47 F during the day and stays above freezing at night. The inland areas with higher elevations will have snow during the winter months and generally lower temperatures.

Getting to Your Washington Vacation Rentals

The nearest major airport to your southwest Washington lodging is the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport which is 93 miles from the center of Ocean Shores. The area is also easy to access by car from the I-5 which runs up the west coast from Sacramento, California to the Canadian border.

Popular Places to Visit from Southwest Washington Vacation Rentals

There is no shortage of places to visit from your southwest Washington lodging. The protected scenic area of the Columbia River Gorge is overlooked by the city of Vancouver, not to be confused with the Canadian city of the same name further north. The city of Aberdeen has a replica of Captain Gray's ship, the Lady Washington, which is considered the state's ambassador. Fans of musician Kurt Cobain can take a walking tour of his homes and haunts as Aberdeen was his hometown before he joined the rock band, Nirvana. Near Grayland beach, just south of Westport, is worth visiting for its spectacular oceanfront scenery and beachcombing opportunities.

Willapa Bay is a serene area to visit along the 26-mile Longbeach Peninsula with its superb opportunities for wildlife spotting. Gift stores and restaurants are worth stopping for at Ocean Park. Port Ilwaco has great art galleries en route to the North Head Lighthouse. Ocean Shores, Taholah and Point Grenville all have wonderful beaches for families to spend the day.

Further inland are the sightseeing opportunities at Mount St. Helen's, the National Forest and the National Wildlife Refuge.
