About Steve Kunkel

I've been building and remodeling houses since 1975. I've lived in Washington since I was born and really like Northwest Forests. As a youth I played Cello in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra so I've always loved classical music. I have been married to Alice since 1979. We have two daughters and 4 grandchildren. I come up to the Lodge once a month to both relax and also to keep everything in good working order.

Steve Kunkel purchased this house in 2006

Why Steve Kunkel chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

I've always wanted to build a cabin in the woods, so we chose a large lot with a lush green forest here in the Northwest. We also wanted a property with a stream running through it located where no highway noise can be heard. It's like having our own little National Park. Property near the ocean would have been nice but I preferred the forest because the forest is rejuvenating for me. From the reviews we have received, I think it is for others as well.

What makes this house unique

After much consideration it was decided that our Lodge would NOT have a TV. We have cell phone service and a wireless internet for people to stay connected with the world beyond the Lodge. The TV seemed to be the biggest interference for people to connect with each other when at the Lodge so we decided to go without. I think this one feature has contributed the most to the positive and rejuvenating atmosphere at the Lodge. We have games, puzzles, a piano, an outdoor fire pit, badmitten net and a trail through the woods..all activities that people enjoy doing with each other.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Better than expected! This was a great place for several families to get together. Kid friendly and lots of amenities for kids. We had a great time! Thank you again for your communication and wonderful place. It's even better than the description! It would be nice if there was another queen bed, but it wasn't a big deal and we figured it out! Loved the hot tub and sauna. Also the labeling and attention to detail was completely awesome. Take care! We plan to come back next year for our winter retreat. We want to stay longer next time!

Great home for family reunions

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this rental is first class, from the owners' helpful instructions, to the beautiful accomodations. There is plenty of room in the 4+ bedrooms and baths for everyone to feel comfortable, and the large kitchen made it easy and fun for all of our family to join in with meal preparation.

The area is one of great scenic beauty, and we enjoyed day trips to Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Rain Forest, Ruby Beach as well as closer trips to Dungeness Spit and Sequim. A day trip to Victoria via the Port Angeles ferry was also enjoyed.

The lodge is so welcoming that you'd be very content with just sitting in front of the fireplace or woodstove with a good book (on those rainy days) or enjoying the deck and backyard.

We were adults-only on this trip, but the loft would be a fun place for older kids to sleep.

Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive feed back. It's nice to know that our original vision for the Lodge is being fulfilled by groups visiting the North Olympic Peninsula. We wanted it to be a great home base for day trips to the many local scenic places. Steve

Olympia Foothills Lodge, A Dream

  • 5 of 5

The Olympic Foothills Lodge is nestled in the woods that when morning came, the soft sunshine filtered through the numerous trees, giving off a dreamy feel. Our stay here was phenomenal and accommodated our large group comfortably. Each and everyone one of my guests were in awe of the beauty, comfort, and luxurious accommodations (it was hard to snag the sauna since it was always filled with people, ha!). The hot tub was just the perfect touch for our exhausted wedding party, enjoying the warmth while secluded from the house. Lani has been a phenomenal communicator, constantly in communication with me before and after our stay and ensured all of our needs were met. The kitchen is stunning, well stocked with plates, cups, bowls, griddle, extra refrigerator space!, and more. I highly, highly recommend staying here for the perfect get away with family and friends. Thank you to Steve, Alice and Lani for hosting us and making this whole wedding experience even more wonderful!

fantastic house for a family trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 4 adults and 5 kids at the Foothills lodge for a family trip. The home itself was beautiful and well kept, VERY well stocked kitchen. also -Firewood for the fire pit, frisbees for the kids to play with. Plenty of room in the house for everyone. I have stayed in a number of rental homes, but none with the attention to detail (and labeling!) of this one. We enjoyed the hot tub and the trail in the woods as well. Location is convenient to Port Angeles and the park. I would highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to tell us about your stay. It's always good to hear that the time and effort we have put into making the Lodge a special place is appreciated. I, too, have rented a few homes and condos and have sometimes thought the place could be better if they only had a ........fill in the blank. So I take notes and have used some of those experiences to keep improving our Lodge. I hope you can find time to come again, sometime. Steve

Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of house is wonderfull and was conducive to our family cooking and relaxing together. The backyard is large and private. The hot tub, sauna and fire pit weee enjoyed by all. The house is clean, well maintained and very well organized. Also, before the trip the owners were very friendly and helpful .

Wonderful comfortable and convenient vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The Olympic Foothill Lodge is a wonderful place to base your stay for comfort, convenience and access to the Olympic National Park. The Lodge has everything you need and more (hot tub/sauna) in a secluded area of Deer Park. Our group of 10 was totally happy with the accommodations in this well designed and high quality amenities home. You won't be disappointed!

Beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this home for a "family reunion/80th Birthday" celebration. The home went above and beyond our expectations. It was much larger than we had hoped for with room for everyone to be comfortable. The kitchen was perfect with lots of room for all the cooks to be in there having fun. We even hired a professional piano player to entertain during the birthday party. There is an indoor sauna which was enjoyed. I could go on and on about this wonderful home. It is the perfect group gathering place and sure to bring great memories for your family and friends. Everything was so professionally handled too and it was spotless when we arrived. Thank you for sharing your beautiful spot!!
