Read one of our reviews:
Just wow - this place is just off 101, but makes you feel like you're back in the woods away from everything. With an absolutely breathtaking view of the Ewha river and Olympic mountains, you could sit on the couch all day (or in the hot tub) and just stare. This place was absolutely perfect for us, and was huge! Everything was well stocked in the kitchen, plenty of clean linens and towels for the hot tub, and a great outdoor space for kids and/or dogs. We've stayed at quite a few places through AirBnB and this was one of my absolute favorites. Will likely visit again, and would HIGHLY recommend to others. The pictures don't do the place justice - it really is an incredible place to be.
River House, a 2600 sf home on a high bank above the Elwha River, shows views of the River and the distant snow-topped mountains that are a photographer's delight, presenting an ever-changing vista of light and shadow.
The spacious great room/dining area/kitchen is lit by a three-story prow window and invites day's end relaxation with television, wood stove and comfortable leather seating. The dining area features seating for six around a large teak table. The modern kitchen is well-equipped for meal preparation. A deck off the living area and a hot tub and fire pit come with views of the River and mountains.
The "Sockeye Suite" a light-filled room with an en-suite bath, king size bed, television and walk-in closet, encompasses the second floor, assuring the greatest privacy. A balcony off the bedroom is a fine place to take your morning coffee. The adjacent "Tuckaway Room," a cozy spot with a comfortable twin bed, shares a bath with the Sockeye Suite.
On the main floor, a third bedroom features a king- size bed, television, a walk-in closet and an adjacent designated bath. "Waterfowl Room" takes its theme and colors from exquisitely detailed duck prints and decoys.
The fourth bedroom is the striking "Upland Game Birds" room featuring prints of a pheasant in flight and ruffled grouse, a queen bed, walk- in closet and an adjacent designated bath.
Though River House does not have ramps, it is accessible via 2 steps at the front of the house. The open kitchen, dining area and living area are very spacious, including wide aisles in the kitchen, making wheelchair and other assisted mobility easy. The deck off the dining area is the same height as the interior flooring, allowing outdoor viewing of the River and mountains.
A path down to the River allows a close-up view of the changes in the water flow since the the Glines and Elwha dams were removed.
We are blessed with occasional visits from deer and the Herrick Road elk herd, as well as cougar and bear spottings.
Our neighbor has several goats and a flock of chickens that visit regularly. (They sell fresh eggs which are a real treat.)
Across the River is the Olympic Hot Springs Road entrance to the Olympic National Park. This entry leads to a recently built overlook to the former site of the Glines Dam.
Lake Crescent is about 15 minutes west on Highway 101. The Lodge has a covered porch and outdoor seating fine for sipping your tea, coffee, wine etc and viewing a stunning lake, recently voted the best in Washington. There are easy flat walking paths on the grounds as well. A mile-long trail leads to the 90 foot Marymere Waterfall.
Olympic Raft and Kayaking is literally "right down the road". Harbinger Winery's Tasting Room is about 6 miles east on 101, on the right side. Right next door is Adventures in Kayaking.
In addition, the home comes complete with a washer/dryer, three Tv's, Cable television with HBO, a fire pit and a hot tub to relax in while you check out the amazing views.

Vetrans Day Weekend Vacation
Amazing home with beautiful view. Enjoyed numerous hikes all over and sipping wine at night in the hot tub. Kids had a fun filled weekend as well.
Lovely setting with everything you need
I stayed here with a group of friends and found the place to be absolutely perfect. Secluded setting with easy access to the park, but close enough to town if you need supplies. And the hot tub overlooking the river is just what the doctor ordered after a long day on the trail!
Beautiful home with gorgeous views of the river and the mountains.
The home was spacious and clean. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cookware.
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home.
Fantastic location and view. Sound of the river topped it off.
House was loaded with everything you could need! I would recommend to anyone!
River House is a great place for families to gather.
Appteciate the owner's responsiveness to a couple of questions after our arrival. Also had a very nice hike down to the crystal clear, cold river.
The Elwha River is a 45-mile river on the Olympic Peninsula in the U.S. state of Washington. From its source at Elwha snowfinger in the Olympic Mountains of Olympic National Park, it flows generally north to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The house is situated on the high banks of the beautiful river.
