Welcome to Olympic-National, a family getaway nestled on the border and entrance to coastal Olympic National Park at Rialto Beach. With nothing separating you from the Park, you are immersed in peace and quiet among the massive trees of the forest. At this nearly 30 acre compound you can enjoy hundreds of feet of river front and nearly a half mile of Olympic National Park frontage. The salmon run on the Quillayute River is one of the best in the region. Guests remark that the home is perfectly located to explore Olympic National Park since it is so close to so many attractions. Sorry we have no reviews for you to see, we are new to VRBO, but you can go to that other website that starts with an A and finds us.
The vacation rental is Cape Cod style with a river rock fireplace and modern kitchen. Shaker and Craftsman styles highlight the interior and a great room opens to a large south-facing deck extending your entertaining and sunning. This is a modern home with new amenities, appliances and furniture as well as computer controlled air conditioning and heat, no keys are needed to enter the home, light dimming and sensors make your stay easy and comfortable.
Elk, deer and bald eagles make their home here. The elk leave the Park to graze in the pasture below the deck and bald eagles live at the river front where their favorite fishing hole is located.
HIKING: There are trails on the property and nearby including Rialto Beach, Hole in the Wall, Lake Ozette, First/Second/Third Beaches, James Lake and others. The confluences of the Sol Duc, Bogachiel, Quillayute and Dickey Rivers are within 2 miles. The Hoh Rain Forest, Lake Crescent, Sol Duc Hot Springs, Ruby Beach and Kalaloch Beach are all within an hour from here. Lake Ozette is just a 8.5 mile trip by raven.
FISHING: For fishing enthusiasts, the river front has one of the best salmon fishing holes in the region and is home to the best native steelhead fisheries in the contiguous United States. Halibut and ocean fishing is available at LaPush. There is plenty of parking for cars and boats on trailers and there is room to pitch tents if needed. The gravel bar along the property is an excellent stretch of fly fishing water and is a great place to fish. The Quillayute hosts chinook, coho, sockeye and at times pink salmon. Sea-run cutthroat trout are abundant. A fishing license is not required to fish in Olympic National Park; however, you need a free salmon/steelhead catch record if you are targeting these fish. The gravel bar is shared with Olympic National Park.
A big screen HD TV and cable with ShowTime and other premium channels give you access to a selection of movies and TV shows. High speed Internet and WiFi are also provided for your streaming pleasure. A computer work space provides comfortable seating along with multiple USB charging stations.
