Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I absolutely love the Cozy River House 1. Julie's attention to detail and cleanliness of her properties sets the bar. Only a short 6 minute drive from Forks, this home sits right on the banks of the legendary Sol Duc river. There is no better place to unwind from a day of fishing and hiking or simply enjoying your coffee as the river flows by. A must stay!

A cozy riverhouse, Forks, WA

  • 5 of 5

Spending the holiday week with our son and daughter-in-law and all being nature lovers, we chose A Cozy River House for its proximity to the Hoh River and the beaches. The accommodations were perfect. We love to cook and the kitchen was well stocked with excellent cutlery and roasting pans. It has a homey feel with the long table and benches. All 6 of us could sit and eat together and continue in conversation well beyond dessert. The weather was not cooperative to enjoy the deck but the river view is beautiful and I'm sure the sound soothing on a summer night. We enjoy wood fires nightly on winter nights so we were very much at home. The layout of the home makes it easy for six. The two generous garage stalls make it convenient for two separately arriving parties. WiFi was great for our tweeting 30 somethings. TV great, even the sound system we enjoyed Pandora while in the kitchen.

Highly recommend this place for hiking seniors. I can only imagine how great it must be for fishing seniors!!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (ages 9-75) enjoyed our stay very much. We come to Forks every summer, and this is by far the nicest accommodation we have found. It is also superior to most of the VRBO rentals we have used throughout the West. We will be back. Warm welcome and very personal service.(Julie did a special spider check because my granddaughter refers to one of our prior rentals as The Spider House and, indeed, no spiders were found despite the house being in the woods.) Exceptionally well stocked kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room; nice linens. Great game collection. Dining table big enough for everybody. Furnishings in good shape. Beds good. The house is centrally located for great beaches (Rialto and, our favorite, second beach) and an easy drive to Ruby Beach and the Hoh rain forest. (I should note the wifi is too slow for anything beyond checking email and Facebook, but I'm pretty sure that this is endemic to the area and beyond Julie's control. If being able to download videos or play interactive games on your phone is important, probably Forks is not for you.)

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend a week a year at the cozy river house in pursuit of wild steelhead on the fly. What an amazing escape in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula.

The views of the Solduc River from the living area are fantastic and the home is well furnished for any travelers need.

We recommend all of Julie's properties. Her attention to deliver a great experience sets the bar.

Great cabin to book along with Cozy Riverhouse II to have 2 cabins if you need it!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting the Cozy Riverhouse I & Cozy Riverhouse II cabins both together at the same time a few times per year to take larger groups of customers at a time steelhead and salmon river fishing. The drive to and approach is beautiful. The cabin sits right on the Sol Duc River in "the zone" of fishing. Both Cozy I & 2 cabins just have one cabin between them so you can walk driveway to driveway as you are that close. Great for larger parties when you get both cabins at the same time. You can dispatch to fish 4 rivers within minutes of the cabin. The cabin is cozy and right on the Sol Duc River. Hike the Olympic National Rain Forest, walk on the ocean beaches, see the Sol Duc Hotsprings. 7 minutes to dine in Forks or see the town. The most important thing is that the owners take incredible care of you with excellent customer service. Booking on their website is a snap, quick easy emailed PDF invoice, meticulously clean and prepared cabin awaiting you. Contact from the owners to confirm your arrival time and to assist with any special needs, complete privacy during your stay, but immediate assistance if you need anything. Thoughtful owners there to provide 10+customer service. I rate both this cabin (Cozy Riverhouse I) as well as Cozy Riverhouse II which are both owned and operated by the same owner a 10+. Very pleased. You should definitely book and try this cabin to go fishing, hiking, ocean seeing, hunting, relaxing and just enjoying the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The owner is great. There were no issues booking the place or finding it and the directions were superb.

The house was great. We loved the fireplace and the selection of board games and books. The welcome basket was very nice too. The sound of the river in the morning was very pleasing and the patio was a nice place to have a cup of coffee.

About The Owner

I grew up in Forks and have the great fortune of sharing our family's beloved, cozy cabin and this beautiful area with guests like you! We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming, clean and comfortable stay and experience from start to finish. We want you to relax and enjoy a vacation that is so well-equipped with everything you're likely to need, you can concentrate on quality time together, fun and exploring, and making memories that will last a lifetime!

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Forks

A Cozy River House I has been in our family for many decades, and is a place that is near and dear to us. It is perfectly located to see all the sites - the beaches, rainforest, lakes, waterfalls - in just a 30 minutes or less in the heart of Olympic National Park. The back deck overlooking the river is so peaceful and is the best place for an evening fire, and to catch glimpses of bald eagles and otters going about their daily riverside activities.

What makes this house unique

Cozy 1 is the perfect river cabin where you feel like you're off the grid and away from it all, but you still have all the modern conveniences you need to stay connected to the "outside world' if you need to. The deck affords spectacular views of the Sol Duc River and bald eagle fly-by's throughout the day. Eagles often provide excellent photo moments by landing on one of the property's trees! It's just the right size to accommodate families and friends. With the public boat launch and fishing access to the Sol Duc River just down the street, Cozy 1 has become a favorite for both small and large groups of fishermen too. It is perfect for family reunions, with A Cozy River House II only two houses down the street for larger groups. A Cozy River House is the perfect getaway year round - our family loves it and we know you will too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for providing the perfect vacation get-away - you thought of everything. It was wonderful staying here. We love the hike to Cape Flattery and also hiked to 2nd Beach, with our 5 year old granddaughter.
