About Peggy Gleason

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.

Peggy Gleason purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Peggy Gleason chose Hood Canal, Olympic Peninsula

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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!

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the Moose House to have a scrapbook weekend. I was so impressed with how clean it was. We loved all the windows that look directly out to the woods. It feels so serene. The owner is very easy to work with and very friendly. We loved it so much that we are going again next weekend. Another thing that I loved is that it didn't cost us our left arm to rent it and that she doesn't charge a house keeping fee. As long as you clean, clean, clean when leave and leave it how you found it, it is all good! I am so thankful that we found the Moose House, we will definately be using it frequently.

Absolutely THE BEST cabin in the woods!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The moment you pull up, my husband and I got a giddy feeling. Walking in, experiencing the cabin itself was priceless. The queen bed up in the loft was the perfect way to wake up each morning. The couches and chair were great! DVD/book selection were rad. Kitchen and all utensils felt just like home. Then to walk outside and know this was "our home away" was beyond that. Everything was perfect, magical and amazing. One of a kind cabin with everything your heart desires. Will definetly be back as many times as possible.

Peaceful retreat in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

Moose house is a charming cabin in a forested setting (large windows overlook the forest canopy in back) and a fantastic location next to the Olympic National Park. Great for getting away from it all, hiking, fishing, exploring or just relaxing.

It's well equipped and has all the comforts of home and a campfire pit past the large deck which we loved! We will be recommending this place to friends and family as a perfect vacation spot!

The hosts made everything very easy and were most helpful.

Beautiful cabin on a gorgeous lake

  • 4 of 5

Spent the weekend here and enjoyed some fishing and kayaking at lake cushman which was like .2 miles away. The weather was still cooler since it was early may. Struck out fishing, but coming back to the jetted tub and a really comfy bed was perfect. It was just my girlfriend and I but there was a loft with 2 queen sized beds and a fold out couch. Plenty of room for a much bigger group to fit comfortably. My only complaint was the firewood provided was still quite green and didn't burn very well in the campfire. We still enjoyed a nice evening around the pit, with a fairly modest fire on a pretty cool night.

Other than that, I had a really good time and would recommend it to a friend. I look forward to going back sometime.

Owner's Response: Hi Kevin - I'm very sorry that the firewood wasn't dry. We've been getting our wood from the same supplier for years and never had a problem with it. This has been a very tough winter though and he probably ran out of his supply of totally dry wood. Now that the weather is warming up, it shouldn't take long to dry out for future guests. Also, we don't have a jetted tub - I just want to make sure people know that. Thank you for your nice comments! Peggy and Paul Gleason
