You won't find anything better for Northwest experience- nature surrounded, peaceful Pacific Northwest. Close to everything yet completely private. THE COMPASS ROSE HOUSE is one of three separate homes on over 25 acres, all with Olympic Mountain views. These secluded rentals offer you a haven to explore all the diversity the Olympic Peninsula has to offer. Easy access to two towns and the Olympic National Park. Serenity awaits you. Roam our lush lupine covered meadows, languish by the ponds, see Bald Eagles and Blue Heron and access The Olympic National Park, just minutes away.

The THE COMPASS ROSE HOUSE is carefully handcrafted and meticulously detailed. This beautiful home and hot tub have commanding views of the Olympic Mountains. This tasteful home has an open plan with vaulted ceilings and is surrounded by lush meadows. It feels very roomy and open to nature while also being cozy. This charming cedar home is ideal for couples, but can accommodate up to 8.

The master bedroom looks onto the Lupine Pond, a 1/2 acre pond that reflects the mountain views and attracts a large variety of birds. An upstairs room, open to the lower level, and accessed by a 'ship's ladder', has a view of the pond and the lovely private, surrounding meadows.

Enjoy cooking in the deluxe kitchen, well equipped with all the cooking amenities, staples and spices and a gas stove, oven, large refrigerator and island. The bathroom with walk-in large tiled shower comes equipped with washer and dryer.

There is wood stove with a glass door so you can watch the fire and curl up with a good book, or simply enjoy the comfort of the radiant heated floors.

The sliding glass doors open to a large deck where you can take in the awesome Olympic Mountains and the acres of natural, unspoiled meadows. Have a barbecue, watch the Bald Eagles as they dive for fish in the pond. Gaze at the stars at night, roast marshmallows around the fire pit, roam the meadows or take an adventure into Olympic National Park.

THE COMPASS ROSE HOUSE can also be rented for groups along with our other two cabins. See our other VRBO listings.

Ten minutes away are Sequim and Port Angeles, the world’s longest sand spit, the ferry to Victoria, B.C., Canada and the entrance to Olympic National Park, where the road to Hurricane Ridge takes you to a stunning view of active glaciers in the Olympic Mountains.

You can venture into the moss covered rain forest, enjoy a pristine glacier carved lake, hike hundreds of miles of wilderness trails with crystal clear rivers and majestic waterfalls, be awed by the sandy rugged beaches, and soak in natural hot springs.

Whether you are a nature lover who likes to kayak, surf, fish, spot birds, watch whales, bike or hike the trails, or someone who is search of a perfect quiet natural setting, here you will find your heart’s desire.

About Suzann Pilot

Martin and Suzann are owners and full-time managers of Olympic View Cabins. They are close by so are available whenever you might need. Their son designed and built the cedar Compass Rose House in 2010.

Suzann Pilot purchased this House in 2004

Why Suzann Pilot chose Port Angeles

We had a vision for over 30 years of a family compound where we could live and share a beautiful natural environment with our son and daughter. We traveled the Pacific Rim, New Zealand and Canada in search of a place. When we found this place 14 years ago it felt like we had found our dream. The Olympic Peninsula provides remarkable natural beauty of almost every sort. We climb mountains and get into areas with pristine glaciers and lakes and see bear and goats and deer, and a huge variety of birds. We love to find waterfalls that few people have found and explore the rainforest mysteries summer and winter. Our children surf the waves as we explore the beaches which have unusual pinnacles and formations, and we collect driftwood and bask on the white sand. We take our family picnicking on the beautiful clear rivers where they often catch Steelhead or Salmon. Skiing and snowboarding and several winter sports are a big attraction. And always, we make sure visitors get into the exceptional Olympic National Park.

What makes this House unique

We take great pride in the home we offer to you with meticulous detail. Our son designed his Compass Rose House and we all built it together. Some refer to it as 'elegant camping' since you feel like you are almost out of doors with the openess the home has to all the surroundings. You have all the luxuries for truly comfortable living; excellent beds and linen and great cooking facilities--even the best of organic local herbs. Our specialty in life has been to enjoy and appreciate nature and to help others have that passion too. And that is witnessed in our lovely property and the beautiful homes we have blended with the natural environment. For those who want privacy, we provide it. For those who want a serene and restorative Northwest experience, we provide that. Our homes are surrounded by meadows and a pond filled with fish, with majestic trees lining the edges and wildflowers. We have tried to make nature available and enjoyable out of every window and from every deck. Our hot tubs are outside so you can view the stars. You can see the Olympic Mountains in all their array from nearly every window. We want to touch people, to leave a lasting memory of enjoyment and rejuvenation, to have an infectious experience that compels them to want to pass on the importance of our natural resources to everyone.

The loft was a great additional space for our kids, but just be mindful the stairs are a bit steep so we watched the little ones very closely when going up and down...maybe bring a baby gate if you want to keep them from using them without you. Also the outdoor area was perfect for relaxing after being out all day exploring. The hot tub, the patio, and fire pit with the views of the mountains was a perfect way to end an evening. We will be back...sooooo enjoyed our vacation!

                                                                  We are always so grateful to learn our guest had an enjoyable, exceptional time. We ask if there is anything we can provide that would make our guests stay more enhanced or comfortable. We have baby gates, high chairs, handicap access ramps and much more if we are asked. We are available easily if there is anything our guests would like.

                                                                  Wonderful, relaxing anniversary!

                                                                  Beautiful property and views. We especially enjoyed the private hot tub! And, dancing on the warm, Compass Rose floor. Magical time we won't soon forget. Many thanks. Shila and Dylan Wachtel, from Orcas Island, Wa.

                                                                  Stayed here January 2018 for a week of peace and quiet. Got everything we needed and more. From the breathtaking views to the herd of deer that traveled through. We have been renting cabins throughout Washington on both sides of the cascades for over 20 years. The compass rose house has got to be one of our, if not favorites. From the breathtaking views, to the beautiful well equipped cabin stocked with everything you need. The wood stove with wood provided, the hottub, ponds to fish if your lucky (we weren't) and owners who are near to serve you if you need them or not to be seen if you don't. Suzann and martin are the best of people to work with. When exploring the Olympic peninsula and all it has to offer I couldn't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else while doing so. We can't wait to come back Lord willing. You won't be sorry staying at this little peace of heaven on earth, we didn't want to leave!

                                                                  Charming cabin with a stellar view and all the finer details covered

                                                                  Nicole W.

                                                                  I rented the cabin for out of town guests, but found it so charming I decided to stay there as well during their stay! The cabin is so well appointed, and very welcoming. We especially enjoyed sitting by the warm wood fire stove and looking out at the deer playing in the yard. The hot tub was heaven after a long day of hiking the near by trails in the Olympics. Every detail of this little treasure was well thought out, and the location was perfect. I look forward to staying again as new guests come to explore the beauty of the Olympic peninsula.

                                                                  Being from the big city of Houston, TX we didn't even know how to use the chimney. We were so thankful to find instructions. lol

                                                                  I loved this place and I can't wait to visit again one day. We will defiantly stay longer next time. This was an awesome getaway before heading to Seattle for the big Texans - Seahawks game.
