Manager info

Year Purchased: 1981

About: 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.

Why Port Angeles, WA, USA:
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!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Incredible beauty of the river...nature setting...proximity to water;
