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 Port Angeles

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.

                                                                    Melanie F.

                                                                    Everything about this property was amazing and far above my expectations. From the moment you book, they will send you ALL the information you need, check in, check out, rules, what’s expected, a packing list (who does that?! THEY DO!), activities, restaurants... literally EVERYTHING. We traveled with a group of 10 adults, and we needed a place to accommodate and sleep all of us comfortably. We were in Port Angeles for a local CrossFit Competition, so I will say, having the hot tub and sauna to help our muscles after a long day of competing was well worth it.

                                                                    Everything throughout the house is clearly labeled, and we didn’t need to bring much along with us (other than food, of course) because the house had everything we could need and more.

                                                                    There is one bedroom downstairs right off the kitchen, a couch hide-abed in the living room, along with three total bathrooms (including the master). Upstairs was the 3 bedrooms, the loft/attick space, another couch hide-abed, and two more full bathrooms.

                                                                    Truly the house is amazing, and immaculate, and well kept. If you have a large group and are going to be in the Port Angeles area, this is the place to stay! Trust me.

                                                                    Great getaway, perfect for big groups

                                                                    david G.

                                                                    Our group was looking for a place to stay near the Olympic peninsula, we were happy to book this beautiful lodge. Our stay was very nice, this place had everything you would need to have a relaxing time, nice hot tub, nice sauna, nice comfy beds enough to sleep 10 easily, beautiful views, comfortable kitchen, would definitely recommend to book this place and would love to come back!

                                                                    Beautiful, well maintained and clean!

From my many years of extensive travel, I can honestly say this is one of the cleanest, well maintained homes I have ever stayed. The organization of everything in the home and attention to detail far surpasses the normal rental home. Our group of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and gorgeous views of this home. I highly recommend this home to anyone traveling in the area!

                                                                    Excellent home & hospitality

The house had everything you could possibly want and exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway weekend with friends or family!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    HI Margaret, Thanks for taking the time to give us your impressions of our Lodge during your PEACEFUL family getaway. This will be our 10th year of sharing our Lodge/Home with other families and guests and are always looking for new ways to improve the Lodge. But one thing that has stayed the same since we began this adventure of sharing our "other" home is the calming influence of the forest around the Lodge. Glad you could experience this. Steve

                                                                    Amazing Gem in Port Angeles, Sequim Area.

                                                                    Forest B.

                                                                    This lovely property nestled in a wooded area is impeccable and the perfect vacation retreat. We had a family reunion there and could not be more pleased. Beginning with the outstanding communication and well thought out and organized property with nothing left to chance. Everything is organized, with full instructions to enjoy all aspects of the wood stove, hot tub, grill, fire pit, all we need was our family and some food from Costco. Everything we needed was there and organized with a chart and diagram making it amazingly easy to find.

                                                                    The setting is spectacular and wheelchair accessible. We simply could not have asked for a better venue. Many family members mentioned they plan to use in the future as a vacation rental. We were extremely pleased. If there were six stars, I would have rated it as such! Outstanding!

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    Hi Forest, Thanks for your review. It's always good to hear that our guests appreciate our efforts to build, furnish and maintain this special place "in the woods" that can accommodate large family get-togethers. I enjoy going there once a month to make improvements and keep the place looking new. But I can't do it all myself. We get a lot of help from Lani, our booking manager, and many other local service providers to keep the Lodge clean, functional and beautiful both inside and out. We recently created an LLC with members from the Port Angeles area to help us keep this place going for many years to come. Thanks for being our guest. Steve Kunkel
