  • A log cabin that was much more than expected!

    "The owners of the property was so nice and easy to deal with from the start. We wanted to visit Riffe lake as my wife went fishing there for many years with her dad, and a couple weeks ago he passed away. I wanted to take her back to the lake with our kids, but I really didn't want to stay in a motel in another city. I contacted the owners about the property just 2 days before the weekend that we wanted to use the home and they went out of their way to make sure we could use their house the following weekend. We arrived at the home on Friday around 3pm, and the immediate feel of the property was very homie. The home was a log cabin in the woods on a fishing lake, but had a very high end feel to the property which is what I was hoping for. The fireplace was the hit of the stay, and all I can say is the pictures don't do it justice. The fireplace was massive!! The cabin was very neat and clean, plus came fully equipped with nice appliances throughout. There was a large wood shed outside that we took some wood for the fireplace. The bonus room was perfect for our kids. There was a pool table, air hockey table, and a ping pong table that went over the pool table. There was also a small TV with some movies for the kids upstairs but between the bonus room, board games, and just hanging out the TV only got turned on for a few minutes the entire weekend. The only downfall with the entire stay was not being able to bring our Boston Terrier, but we knew this going in to the rental. The plus side was the neighborhood golden retriever that you will hear about on other reviews. I saw the pup on Saturday morning when I went for a walk. The dog came down off the neighbors porch to see me, and didn't leave my side the entire walk. He made sure to bring his tennis ball with him everywhere he went. When I came back to the cabin I had my kids come out to see him. The kids and the dog played right away and named him Stan since we didn't know his name. After Saturday morning "Stan" would be hanging out with us the rest of the weekend wherever we went. We found out when the trip was over that his real name is Rusty, but I'm sure if you called him Stan he would come! All in all this was a great trip, and we already have plans on staying there more this year."

  • 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."

  • Log cabin in the woods

    "I simply love this log cabin. I stayed for six days and felt completely nurtured in this sweet environment. Just being on this 8 acre property helps so much to ease my mind after spending so much time in the city. The log cabin, the owner of the property and being in the forest served to regenerate my spirit. Thank you so much Moon Mountain!"

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.
