About the property

About Jochen Liesche

Hi, my name is Jochen and I am the owner of Landhaus Quilcene. Originally from Germany, I have called the Seattle area home for over twenty years now. I have created this private forest retreat for my family and friends in the German Landhaus ('country house') tradition. When time allows, we come here to relax, talk, play games, sit by the fire, watch a movie, go hiking, explore nearby towns, and, above all, forget the stress of the work week. Since my family and I are using the Landhaus frequently ourselves, we have taken great care of maintaining and decorating it to make everyone feel welcome and create a great experience in the country.

Jochen Liesche purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Jochen Liesche chose Hood Canal, Olympic Peninsula

Everybody who has stayed here always had a great time and mentions how relaxed they felt afterwards due to the serene forest setting and fresh air. Many of our guests have come back year after year and our guest book is full with nothing but compliments and people's fond memories of the time they spent here.

What makes this cabin unique

All guests love our screened and covered sun porch that allows them to sit outside and enjoy the nature views of the surrounding forest and Dabob valley even if it should rain. A quartz heater provides warmth outside when the temperatures drop. The two adjacent heated guest cabins are very cozy and afford their residents a lot of privacy while being only steps away from the main house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This retreat is wonderful. It is decorated with a designer's touch, but in a very cozy and inviting way. All amenities that you need such as fridge, stove, etc... The grounds are beautiful, easy access to some nearby shops for supplies and central access to other fun activities on the peninsula. We stayed in the house comfortably with 4 adults and a toddler.

A retreat in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a lovely stay in the Quilcene Landhaus. The cabin is tucked away in the quiet woods but is still a convenient home base location for exploring the area. It is an enchanting place: comfortable, beautifully decorated and complete with a well supplied kitchen. We will definitely return.

The host, Jochen, was very prompt in responding to our initial inquiry and in answering questions. Staying at the Landhaus was a wonderful experience from beginning to end.

Very comfortable, charming home.

  • 5 of 5

This cozy, well-equipped home is located within short drives to many beaches, hikes, and sights of Hood Canal and the Olympic Penninsula. The home is nicely decorated and has lots of "special" room to relax and enjoy, from the sun deck to the extended open deck to the extra cabins. Plenty of room for us to play games, visit, and recover after a full day of activities.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a really enjoyable time and the Landhaus. The two extra cabins were great for my two nephews. Made s'mores at the fire pit, chased the dog around the yard, explored the short loop trail off the side of the property. It was really ideal! Looked just like the photos. Serene, quiet, and peaceful. The sun room was especially nice.

My only wish is for the owner to tune the piano. Would have been a treat to haunt my family with my playing, but even I wouldn't do that with its sour sounding keys. 😉

Will definitely return.

Great vacation home. Loved our stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Landhaus Quilcene was the perfect place for our summer get away in May. We used it as a base to explore the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. Beds were very comfortable. The rustic atmosphere and outdoor setting were very relaxing and beautiful. The two outdoor cabins were also very comfortable. The weather was sunny and perfect. We had a great vacation getaway experience. Thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

Always a great stay

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here now several times, and it's always a pleasant and relaxing trip. When the weather is nice, there's nothing better than hanging out on the deck - and if it's not so nice, the screened patio has got you covered.

It's a great place to go if you have a pup, as the yard is large and fully fenced. The kitchen is large and well stocked, and the beds are comfortable. The overall vibe is stylish, homey and eclectic. Can't really ask for much more!
