Space 700 sq. ft.
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Lakefront cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4). (Queen bed, two bunkbeds).

The 'Falls' at Lake Sutherland has been in our family since 1972 when my parents bought a small tiny cabin, nestled at the foot of a mountain on a crystal clear lake as an investment and a fun summer time activity for their five children. My husband and I purchased the cabin to keep it in our family. It has been expanded, remodeled top to bottom, and now boasts one of the most lovely cottage interiors to match the unparalleled exterior beauty of Lake Sutherland, its views, and all that it and the surrounding areas have to offer.

Maple hardwood floors, tiled counter tops and gorgeous wood wrapped windows frame the lake views while darling, cushy furnishings envelope you while you gaze. Cottage quilts cover the beds and thoughtful signs throughout the cabin, remind you that life is indeed 'good!!'

Sit on the deck in one of our famous 'swinging chairs' and read, bird watch, or just doze to the sounds of the lake and the waterfalls. Roast a hotdog in the open fire pit or do a perfect swan dive off of the diving board. Take the canoe out for a leisurely paddle, kayak or fish from the dock. Play a game, craft a puzzle, or challenge your spouse to a game of cards!!

The entire lake can be busy on weekends from mid July through mid August (the prime summer season) so if tranquility is your desire, book a midweek or pre/post summer season holiday!

About Julie

My husband and I grew up on Lake Sutherland. In fact, we own another property just four doors down from this one that we live in because the lake truly is, the only place to be!! We raised our own children at Lake Sutherland, and their fondest memories have all been made there as well. The mornings are my favorite time of the day when we walk out on our deck, coffee in hand, and just drink in all of the beauty that this magical place has to offer.

Julie purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Julie chose Port Angeles

The chance to unwind after a day out and about by sitting and watching the lake is its own form of therapy! My husband and I grew up at Lake Sutherland and it continues to feel like magic to us and our grown children as well as those who come to stay with us!!

What makes this cabin unique

The unparalleled beauty of the lake and surrounding mountains, and the distant sound of the falls all combine to make Lake Sutherland a truly wonderful place to be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family (2 adults, 2 kids age 4 and 7) absolutely loved staying here! The highlights:

The cabin: Very spacious, comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything you could need.

The lake: It's rare to find a lake surrounded by mountains yet warm enough to swim. Absolutely gorgeous and so much fun.

The location: perfectly situated for day trips around the Olympics - we got to the Hoh, Sol Duc, and Second Beach very easily, Lake Sutherland is the perfect starting point for anywhere you want to explore.

The hosts: Julie was so welcoming and helpful, you really couldn't ask for a better host.

Truly one of the best VRBO rentals we've ever had. We're already planning our trip back!

Owner's Response: Jessica, One of our favorite families of the summer!! Your big smiles, your love of the lake and your sense of humor about life's ups and downs (tell Cora next time she will definitely see a shooting star!!) made your stay with us so enjoyable. Thank you for leaving the cabin so amazing, we truly appreciate it. (And pass the book along to someone else, I had more to add yesterday so we are overflowing!) Have a great year and we would love to see you again! Julie

Well kept, clean property with all we needed in our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Julie stopped by shortly after we arrived to make sure that we had everything that we needed. We spent a lovely two nights, slept well on comfortable beds and appreciated every moment of sitting on the deck enjoying the beautiful view while my husband and son loved using the kayaks. We certainly hope to come back someday

Owner's Response: Anne, Your family was the perfect ending to what we call our "summer season!" The sweet note you left was greatly appreciated and the way you left the cabin was AMAZING! Our deepest thanks to you, your husband and son not only for that but for the way you embraced and rolled with the hiccup of hwy 101 being closed until Friday night. You are truly lake people in our book!! So fun to see your husband and son out on (and in) the water as well. Please do think of us in the future and hope your son's year at school is fantastic and safe travels home to you and your husband. Respectfully, Julie

September Escape

  • 5 of 5

Great, quiet getaway trip for my husband and I. The cabin is right on the lake and has everything a couple could need and lots of ways to explore the lake (paddle boat, canoe, and kayaks). Lovely place to stay and a great central spot for Olympic Peninsula adventures.

The perfect Anniversary cabin

My husband and I rented this wonderful perfect cabin on Lake Sutherland for two nights and loved it! Julie, the owner has the place decorated beautifully and she even left us fresh cut flowers and a bottle of Champagne for our Anniversary! Perfect.

Owner's Response: Cindy, Thank you for your review! You and your hubby were an inspiration for two had many miles of kayaking and hiking in before we even got out of bed in the morning! That is the way to be for sure! So glad your anniversary was fun, you two are perfect lake people. Come back our way again soon, we would love to have you! Julie

Perfect Peaceful Flawless Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Julie has a secret here on Lake Sutherland and I'm willing to share it with the world! Our family of 3 had a perfect vacation with this cottage as our home, so many Olympic NP places to visit close by! She has everything you need and is so helpful and kind, and we can't wait to get back here one day! Until then we'll be dreaming about our view and morning visits from Harley!

Owner's Response: Melissa, Harley was looking for you guys this morning!! (I cracked up when she was missing from our yard this week and then, I look four doors down and can see her on your deck with her tail wagging full force getting her morning hello in!! She then would prance back home with a big old smile on her face, what a great way to start the day!) I so enjoyed chatting with you guys about life, the lake and how glorious our area truly is. We feel fortunate every single day that we wake up and are able to just "be" at the lake! Your family "got" what lake life is all about, (and you love Grannies as we do as well.!) So yes, please come back! We would simply love to have you. Respectfully, Julie, Jim and Harley of course!!

We had the best time...loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best family vacation ever! Waking up in the mornings, while our babies slept, watching the sun rise over the lake while sipping coffee in the swinging chairs was a magical way to start the day! We kayaked, swam and played day in and day out. The cabin is adorable, spotless and Julie was a joy to work with. We had s'mores by the fire and then unwound by listening to the waterfall as the days came to a close. All we can say is, we will be back!
