About Mike Vandehey

As a local resident of Westport Washington.

Mike Vandehey purchased this cabin in 2008

The Johns River Cabin was a property I purchased and renewed about five years ago. The reconstructed cabin was originally moved from Wash Away beach years before and I upgraded and remodeled into a cozy cabin retreat.

This house was great! Hidden away, calm and relaxing. No cars passed by. No animals around or bugs. Besides the fact that it needed a little better cleaning in the bathroom everything was perfect! The beds were super comfy. Everything was provided for us. Felt like home away from home. Its about 15 minutes from the beach and 10-15 minutes from Aberdeen where we got all of our food for bbq. Sherry the manager is super sweet. Huge yard for the kids. Not much to do around the area but if you want to just go on a romantic getaway and relax for a few days this is the place! No WiFi or phone service so we got away from everything just family time. We definitely recommend this place.

The Perfect place to stay while you play

  • 5 of 5

The home was even nicer in person than in the picture. Clean and well stocked we enjoyed our stay. We sat by the quiet river, picked blackberries and thimbleberries.and enjoyed the sauna. And that was just while we were not out fishing. We are planning a return trip in the future...

Would stay again

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this cabin by the river. It was close to the Wesport Winery, where we enjoyed lunch and wine testing. We bowled at the Viking Bowl in Westport. Visited downtown Westport and the beach. The cabin itself was clean, well furnished, had two rooms, and a wrap around deck to sit under. The sauna was a neat feature. The kids liked the fire pit.

Weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin one night and were pleasantly surprised at how nice and clean it was. We have stayed at several rental cabins over the years and this was one of the nicest. We easily drove to Westport for the day and enjoyed fresh salt water taffy and stopped at the brewery recommended by the owner, finished up the day having pizza at the pizza place. Overall had a great time and the kids enjoyed splashing in the river.

What a great getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the cabin was so relaxing! The property is very secluded, yet just a short drive to town and the beaches. We loved hanging out around the fire pit and letting the kids "fish" in the river. My husband can't wait for hunting season so he can go back with the guys - we saw a lot of elk in the area while we were there. The furnishings are comfortable, the kitchen has everything you need for prepring meals and the sauna was a nice surprise. We will definitely return and stay here again!
