About The Owner

Three years ago, my wife and I were looking on the west end for a place on water. We searched everywhere to find just the right place.....many were the times we found land and only a small pond or a barely visible stream. Some places required a huge renovation of the exisiting house or cabin. When we found Riverside Retreat, we knew we were home. The view of the river took our breath away and we soon found that everytime we visited and stayed a few days, we were refreshed and renewed by the serenity and beauty here. I am a retired educator and my wife owns her own business. We live about an hour and a half away in Sequim.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1981

Why The Owner chose Port Angeles

This property is unique in its location right on the banks of the Sol Duc River. The river provides a gorgeous scenic viewpoint from inside the cabin or sitting out on the back deck. Even though the cabin is just off Olympic highway 101, it is very quiet, secure and private. The cabin is also conveniently located close to many area attractions that can be visited in a day. The view downriver is incredible and balm for the soul. It has to be seen to be believed. Our cozy cabin is beautifully decorated with period antiques and comfortable furniture to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Everything is provided for your stay....all you need to do is make a reservation and enjoy this special place!

What makes this cottage unique

Incredible beauty of the river...nature setting...proximity to water;

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

You feel as if you are in the deep woods but you are only yards away from the highway. Beautiful view of the Sol Tuc River from the living and master bedroom.

Amazing spot to chill!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time celebrating our 24th anniversary. So peaceful and quiet. A perfect getaway! Cabin was well-stocked and super clean. Bed was very comfortable. It was a much-needed retreat for us.

Enjoyed kayaking on Lake Crescent, the Sol Duch Hot Springs, and YES a Caribbean restaurant in Forks!;-)

Wonderfully relaxing:-)

Fantastic place to unwind and explore

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights here. The cabin was clean, comfortable and well appointed with a great location on the Sol Duc river. Easy drive to many great hiking areas, Crescent Lake, and Port Angeles. If you are wanting to explore OP or just get away, this is a great spot to do it.

Easy reservation and fantastic service.

The best of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Riverside Retreat is a great experience and the best of everything. It started early with the easiest and best reservation process of any VRBO. The location is a perfect place for a jumping off point to anywhere in the OP. The kitchen was outfitted amazingly well, a big deal for our family. The beds were great, it was comfortable for sitting around and visiting, and SUPER clean. I can't imagine a better location when staying in the OP. Only thing that could've been better, more fish

Sweet Spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation spot. The cottage itself was delightfully decorated and fully stocked. The property was beautiful - we loved exploring the Park during the day and coming back to the Retreat in the afternoon to relax, make good meals, and enjoy watching the river and the wildlife. Very private and quiet. Booking was easy and the rental folks are very helpful.

We really loved our Olympic National Park vacation, and staying at the Riverside Retreat made it even better. Thanks again!

Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

There were no reviews on this place so we weren't sure what to expect but we were not disappointed. If you love rivers as we do this place is over the top. We spent a fabulous Thanksgiving here. We even made an entire turkey dinner. The kitchen is well stocked and had most of what we needed. We did bring along a few pans just in case. The house is very cozy and the beds are comfortable (also a biggy for us). It was so nice to have a warm fire and just sit and look out the window at the river. It is literally at your door step. You can crack the bedroom window, snuggle under some nice warm comforters and fall asleep to the sound of the river. We will definitly come back again.
