Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: My husband and I have lived in Oregon for 16 years. Paul is retired and I work for a non profit agency in our home in Salem. We are outdoor enthusiasts and love our time spent at The Moose House - whether we're enjoying our boat out on the lake, hiking a nearby trail, or just relaxing inside watching a movie or reading a book. Unfortunately, we live 200 miles from The Moose House, so we aren't able to enjoy it as much as we would like. We are considering retirement there, but until that time, we love to share it with others who enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Hoodsport, WA, USA:
We first saw Lake Cushman when Paul was getting certified to scuba dive in the Hood Canal late in November of 1999. I drove up to the Lake to find a place to hike and fell in love with it. A few months later we made a trip up there to look at cabins for sale. We felt it would be a great getaway location for our family as well as a possible retirement community.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We looked at many cabins, but chose The Moose House because of it's very close proximity to the Lake and Community Park, large and fairly private lot, high vaulted ceilings, big picture windows and the overall feel of home. We have never regretted our decision. The Moose House has been a vacation rental since the year 2000 and has become the most well known and best loved rental in the area. Many of our guests return year after year and think of this cabin as their own home. Our cabin is the perfect home for our large collection of mooses, and children love trying to count them all. This home is lovingly cared for by our nearby managers and always kept very clean and well appointed. Our guests come to our cabin to celebrate many special occasions including honeymoons, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and one couple even returned to have their wedding there. We've had guests from all over the country and the world, and even a famous movie star! Book your weekend getaway or memorable vacation now and become one of the hundreds of very happy Moose House Alumni!
