Overview

About the property

Idyllic location! Private beach! No bank waterfront!

*Welcome to the Antler's Cottage*

**Your ticket to waterfront heaven!**

This is it! Right off of golden pond! This cozy, lodge theme cabin is located in the most desirable development and on one of the finest no bank waterfront properties Lake Cushman has to offer, it is truly in an idyllic setting.

This squeaky clean hide-a-way is dripping with charm and has all the modern amenities but still retains the flavor of that bygone era. The well stocked kitchen has just been upgraded with new appliances and other features. The living room has a double pull out sofa and cozy fireplace for that special evening. There are lake and mountain views from the kitchen, living room and front deck which includes a propane barbecue and table for those savory sunset dinners!

There are three bedrooms. The master has a king size bed; the two smaller bedrooms each have a twin.

It gets better! The water is mere steps away. This is premium, no bank waterfront. Your own PRIVATE beach, dock and firepit on water's edge. This is a gravel, gradual beach for great swimming and wading. The float is great for mooring your watercraft or just sunbathing. Hop in the canoe for a shoreline excursion to the local park or waterfall; you can even launch a small boat from this property. The views from the dock are majestic. Mountains, forests and crystal clear water. In the mountain night sky the moon and stars dance overhead!

The recreation opportunites at your doorstep are amazing. Olympic National Park, Staircase, Mt. Rose and Mt. Ellinor. Hiking, fishing, golfing, boating.

Your host is the author of 'The Early Settlement of Lake Cushman'. The book is there for you to read, along with dozens of rare, circa 1900 framed historic photographs showcasing the grand era of the lake adorning the cabin walls and beckoning you back to a simpler time. Time seems to stand still here, so tranquil and serene. Experience beautiful Lake Cushman, both past and present. Step out of the rat race and step back in time.

-- We cherish our cabin -- You will too!! -- --New for fall 2014 - ductless heat pump and a/c unit installed for your comfort and convenience--

Authentic Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This was the third (and final) leg of our trip to the Pacific Northwest and proved to be the perfect place after visiting the bigger cities of Seattle and Victoria, BC. A couple things really stood out for us at this location. One, the owner is outstanding...a genuinely friendly guy who has ample local information and was open to answering questions or offering suggestions prior to our trip. Secondly, this cabin is an authentic and charming lake experience from the pictures on the wall to the canoe and the history surrounding the area. Exactly what we wanted to experience with our family. We've rented mountain homes before and really were impressed with how tidy the place is. Not seeing indoor insects or spiders and webs is pretty impressive when you're living in nature! Our two boys spent every waking moment canoeing and jumping off the dock while we relaxed in the shade on the deck. The Hoodsport IGA has everything you need for BBQ on the deck and cocktail hour. Also, we hail from a much warmer area in the summer but were pleased to have the air conditioner when needed during our visit in August. If you're looking for a place to unwind and play games (there are several board games and cards provided) or escape tv and electronics, this property is the answer. Thank you, Larry.

Great location and wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this cabin for a quiet getaway to enjoy a rainy fall weekend. The cabin itself was perfect. Well laid- out and with a fantastic view. The owner was great to interact with, and was a wealth of knowledge about the area. If I were to offer constructive criticism it would be to add a foam topper to the master bed as it was a little too hard for both my wife and I. Still, I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Beautiful location, cozy house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Our host was gracious and helpful before we arrived. The house is fully stocked. We enjoyed using the large canoe provided. There is no wifi, which we didn't fully realize until we got our welcome papers. The couple times we needed a signal, we went to a park in Hoodsport. We enjoyed exploring the area, in part aided by a large binder of information at the house with hikes and things to do in the area.

Gorgeous Location, Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I got married on the Hood Canal and stayed in this cabin for our wedding. Lake Cushman is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been and I was amazed at how quiet and peaceful it was even during a busy summer weekend. The cabin has everything you need for your stay, the bathroom has been recently re-done and the shower is great! Loved cooking in the kitchen with the lake in view. Our absolute favorite was the big deck overlooking the lake and the private dock. We are already booking for next summer and maybe this fall!

Cushman treasure

  • 5 of 5

We lived on Lake Cushman years ago and loved our visit. The cabin has an excellent getaway by the lake feel. It is well supplied, especially the kitchen. The dock was perfect for a small motor boat and the canoe was very fun to paddle. Our location to Staircase and the Olympics couldn't be beat. We had fun doing our favorite hikes and being out on the water. We look forward to staying again next year!
