SHEP'S CASTLE IS AVAILABLE THE NIGHT OF SATURDAY MAY 12TH FOR A ONE NIGHT STAY
Welcome to Shep's Castle, your perfect vacation cabin on Hood Canal!
Enjoy the sunset while relaxing on the deck of this rustic and charming, 1930's cabin. What a perfect ending to a day of swimming, diving, fishing or just hanging around on a lovely, private cove populated by a few lovely cabins.
This two bedroom cabin is perfect for a small family or just a couple wanting to enjoy the solitude of our lovely home. The master has a queen bed and beautiful maple floors and a gorgeous cedar cathedral ceiling. The 2nd bedroom has a double bed and there is a foldout futon in the living room. It is an open floor plan, perfect for a romantic getaway or small family. My cabin is just 25 steps from the water, over a nice grassy lawn that is owned by the county. One night & Two night rates are available, please inquire :)
Dogs are allowed, there is a $20/night pet fee.
Please note: due to the size of the accomodations, Shep's Castle may not accommodate all sizes of guests. It is not tiny by any means, but a cozy little cabin. It has been brought to my attention that the approx 3' by 3' shower is too small for some of the larger guests who have stayed.
We are located just minutes away from Hoodsport, just one cove North of the famous dive spot, Octopus Hole. And just a short drive from Mason Lake and the Olympic National Park.

About Cynthia Reid
I love to hike, fish, swim and play near the water. Having grown up in a small town, living in the city can be quite a challenge for me. Spending time at the cabin is a great way for me to relax and unwind with my daughter and my two little pups.
Cynthia Reid purchased this Cabin in 1999
Why Cynthia Reid chose Hoodsport
We purchased our vacation home in 1999 and have loved every minute we have spent there. It is one of the rare canal homes that is located off the main highway so it is quiet and peaceful. Now that our daughter is a teenager, we are finding it hard to spend as much time as we'd like there. So we are taking this opportunity to share the beauty and charm of our little cabin with others.
What makes this Cabin unique
Shep's Castle is a rare find on the canal. Located off Highway 101, it's a peaceful and quiet setting to relax, unwind, walk the dogs or play like crazy while crabbing, shrimping, fishing, swimming, etc. This place has it ALL!!

Perfect for a weekend getaway
We had a great time staying at Cynthia's property for the weekend. The house is cozy and clean, the kitchen is well stocked, and we loved sitting by the outdoor firepit at night. The seals sunning themselves on the docks in the morning were a bonus!
Super cozy and clean
We really enjoyed our stay! Great little cabin with an amazing view! Very clean! Lots of dvds and games! We had a ball clamming and gathering oysters!
Great location on the water, amenities were thoughtful.
The cabin was the perfect spot to come back to after a day of hiking and wandering thru the small towns on the canal. We all appreciated the games and movies, a great way to unplug. The view was beautiful with the sunrise, sunset, and even the moonlight. Thank you!
Overall the place is average
The view is really really great. I loved the outdoor picnic. I did not realize the place did not have a WiFi connection. But the phone signal works fine. I wish the apartment was better equipped with a better tv and an outdoor grill. Overall I would rate this place as average.
I have been renting out Shep's Castle for almost a decade and this is the third time someone has complained about there not being Wifi. I have never had WiFi at the cabin or listed it in the amenities for two reasons. First of all, internet connection in the area is spotty and slow. Neighboring rentals are left with bad reviews because of this and it effects their standing on this site. Secondly, the vast majority of my guests are there to enjoy the cabin and the beauty of the area. This is the same reason I don't have cable. Neither cable nor WiFi are listed in the amenities.
The old BBQ is being replaced and the new one should be delivered next week.
I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of your experience, I always love hearing that from my guests.
Great old cabin right on the water
As advertised comfortable for 2 and our little dog. Had everything we needed and hope to comeback in the summer
Sweet spot and the best sunrises ever
Cynthia thought of everything as she set up this cabin. Cozy, and comfortable. It is an true beach cabin- half old/ half new construction, don't expect mint condition on the older and smaller bedroom. But the new bedroom is beautiful. Kitchen is well supplied.
Great hiking not far from the cabin by Lake Cushman (check out Mt Ellinor). Or stay in and play games and watch the ever changing view. Not much for walks close in as it's mostly private property up and down that stretch of 101.
I've rented many spots on VRBO and HomeAway, many as single times. This is that blend I love of welcoming you without pretention- simply relaxing. I will definitely be back
