This is the most private and unique property I know of. Great for large gathering or just a quiet over night escape.

Guestbook comments from the owner

By Liz (olympia WA)

This house is perfect for a large gathering of people with diverse interests. Our fishermen fished each day (and CAUGHT a steelhead); our walkers went to the beach each day, and our cooks and sitters sat happily by the fireplace in the main room , cooking, reading and talking. New Year's Eve we sat around the fireplace and told stories -- and watched the fireworks from La Push (or maybe Rialto Beach?) which was a lovely little bonus!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This is a great house - spacious and comfortable (chairs and beds!) with plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The setting - think cattle, ponies, and elk roaming under the flights of bald eagles and bright hummingbirds. Well equipped kitchen, laundry room, and table big enough for large family dinners, and a huge fireplace! The nearby beaches are full of wild, natural beauty. Some, like Rialto Beach, are very easy to get to from a parking lot. Others, like 3rd Beach are a more challenging hike, but the seeing the waterfall down to the sea is well worth the effort. Not to be missed is th Hoh Rainforest River Trail - pure magic. We could not have chosen better spot for our family reunion gathering.

Perfect place for a weekend on the Olympic Peninsula!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our annual trip to the Olympic Peninsula. I emailed Byron several times to get more details (is there a crock pot - yes!) and he was helpful and friendly. He came by and introduced himself shortly after we arrived. I hope to stay here again next year. It was perfect for our group to share meals, spend time together, access hiking and fishing and just enjoy the beauty of the area. I loved falling asleep to the sound of the frogs. Thank you!

Mini Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Byron, Thank you again for such a beautiful place it is everything we asked for and then some. We come out every year for a softball tournament and we so look forward to staying here it's the best mini vacation we could have. I eve got a surprise visit from my daughter and grandprince from Virginia. So we went out to Lapush the last day it is so beautiful out there. She and her friends are still into Twilight so she got to be a tourist that day also. So Thank you again we look forward to next year.
