About the property

Idyllic location! Private beach! No bank waterfront!

*Welcome to the Antler's Cottage*

**Your ticket to waterfront heaven!** **Stay at the author's cabin!**

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--

Unbelievably Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We REALLY LOVED staying at Antlers Cabin. Larry Overland is such a great guy and this cabin was so well decorated. If you even are remotely considering this cabin, don't consider, book it, this place was amazing! Larry thought of everything and we enjoyed the historical documentary about Antlers Hotel that Larry left for us to watch.

The view, the quietness of the area, the amenities... all wonderful. Hands down this one of our best vacations and we vacation often.

The lake has a wonderful and surprising history, I am so blessed to be the author and authenticator of that past era, our cabin is a tribute to those pioneers and their legacy. We wish you well in your future travels and thank you for choosing to stay with us! Regards, Larry

Fantastic place to enjoy Lake Cushman

  • 5 of 5

Great access to Lake Cushman, easy, flat approach for kids and private too. Antlers is compact but has everything needed including AC and was perfect for our trip.

Another fabulous week at Antlers Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at Antlers Cottage and we picked a week with perfect weather! As always, the house and property were in perfect order, including a bathroom remodel since our last visit in 2016. A beautiful vacation spot that I will come back to! Thank you, Larry!

My favorite place!

  • 5 of 5

So fun and cozy here I don’t want to tell you how much we liked it so we can keep it to ourselves! The cabin has everything you need and you can roll out of bed and enjoy the lake. This is our second year and we are booking for next year too. One downside is the larger bed is really hard and uncomfortable, but I’m used to a softer mattress. This is a truly special place!
