Best View in Port Angeles: The Bluff House

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 6)

The Bluff House is the perfect vacation home. The home has a huge gourmet kitchen and three comfortable bedrooms each with its own private, full bathroom, ideal for three couples or a small family wanting to explore Port Angeles and the Olympic National Park. The panoramic salt water view is incredible and visible from almost every room in the house; both sunrises and sunsets are visible over the water. The house is located on a 100ft high bluff, set 40ft back from the water, so there is no better view available anywhere in Port Angeles, period. Turn around and there is a view of the Olympic Mountains looming above Port Angeles.

The location of the house is perfect for visitors. It is close to the Olympic National Park, the Discovery Trail and the downtown area of Port Angeles. It is just 4 blocks from the Victoria Ferry, 2 blocks from the Discovery Trail, 1 mile from the entrance to the national park and 5 blocks from shopping and restaurants. Your hosts can help with trail and sightseeing information, and any concerns or questions that may arise when planning your adventures on the Olympic Peninsula. Look at the photos and read the reviews. The photos are all taken by us from the house itself and the reviews are all written by guests that stayed at the house (i.e. none were written by friends or family at our request). The Bluff House is the nicest vacation home in Port Angeles, perfect for a small group of up to 6 people. You will love it and want to return.

About Cindy Clark

An avid hiker and enjoyer of the outdoors, I love this area, it's people and all it has to offer. I am so happy to share our corner of the country with travelers, and the Bluff House is the perfect venue for that.

Cindy Clark purchased this house in 1990

Why Cindy Clark chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

We bought this property because of the amazing view but it was too small at the time for our family. Now that our kids are gone we have doubled the size of the house and made it cozy for when they return with their families.

What makes this house unique

The mountain view to the south and the water views to the north, west and east make this a unique piece of property. Eagles perch in the tree out front and the water is full of activity all the time, both natural and man-made. The kitchen has a separate wet bar, everything you need for the discerning chef and beautiful serving pieces to make you feel at home. The lights of the harbor are an enchanting sight at night and in the winter months, nothing is cozier than sitting in the warm front room watching the weather unfold in front of your eyes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Cindy fro being so flexible , helpful and tremendously easy to work with. We has a wonderful stay at your lovely property. It was the perfect getaway for a great trip to the Olympic Peninsula. Without a doubt, I'll be recommending The Bluff House as THE place to stay in Port Angeles, although I'm mighty tempted to keep it a secret!

Thanks again, Gayathri and gang

Eagle view

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Amazing sunsets.

Perfect access to many of the ONP sites.

I hope the tree in the back yard is still there----- as it was a common stopping spot for some bald eagles.

Cindy was friendly and helpful.

Perfect house, amazing view, lovely owner

  • 5 of 5

Five of us---husband, myself, children---came to stay for a late-summer vacation. The house was perfect for us. We loved the view over the water, and some of us got obsessed about the boats. There were lots of binoculars to use in order to see boats and birds. We spent some time in the Olympic National Forest, some time near the water, some time in Port Angeles---but a lot of time just hanging out together at the house. The house has great spaces to spend time together, and space for when you need a little alone-time. The landlady was very friendly, available, and full of useful information about EVERYTHING about the area. She even very discretely dropped off some free fruits from her garden! I love her policy about food: feel free to eat any food that's in the house, and feel free to leave any food you don't want to take with you. The owner makes it feel like renters are trusted friends. We were very sad to leave and would love to return.

Beautiful home with a magnificent view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a 4 day weekend for a family gathering. The view is beautiful. The bedrooms were very beautiful and 2 of the 3 rooms had amazing views. The deck was perfect for a family dinner and coffee in the morning. Cynthia was very easy to work with and kept in contact with me from when I booked in January up until the time we checked in. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, with a beautiful view and comfortable beds, the Bluff House is a great place to stay. The house was clean, the kitchen well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, etc. I would stay here again and recommend to others. No need to dine out - we found that cooking in and enjoying the view was perfect for us.

Fabulous house, location and owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Port Angeles at the Bluff House. The house has an outstanding view, the rooms are large, comfortable and well furnished. The kitchen is very well stocked with anything you may need, better stocked than our own home! Cindy, the owner, was absolutely great and brought us her delicious banana bread. The home is close to downtown Port Angeles, ferry to Victoria and many of the Olympic National Park hiking trails. The home is ideally located for various day trips to the Hoh Rain Forest, Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge and Victoria. I would highly recommend this home for anyone visiting NW Washington. We stayed 4 nights and wished we could of stayed 5 nights as we did not have time to walk the Dungeness spit.

Cindy was very helpful and was even kind enough to send me two shirts that I accidently left at the house. We had a great time!

There are wonderful restaurants and unique shops just blocks away in downtown PA. The Olympic National Park has limitless opportunities for adventures in nature. It has lakes, ocean beaches, tide pools, mountains, trails and some of the most incredible forests in the world. The 100+ mile Olympic Discovery Trail is 2 blocks away, offering endless distance for biking or running. (We have an official marathon every June). There are several marine sanctuaries in the area where sea life is on full view.

There are alpine wildflowers to rival anything in the Alps. Lakes and rivers that are clear and cold highlight many hikes and the Hoh Rainforest is a world treasure with its Hall of Mosses and some of the biggest trees in the world. Rainfall varies throughout the different environments from 15 inches a year to over 180, so you can imagine the variety of plants and microclimes.

There are wild ocean beaches that inspire awe and quiet forest glens that make you sigh. One of the quietest places on earth is within Olympic National Park.

Recently, 2 dams have been removed from the Elwah River which will be a grand experiment to try and revitalize one of the country's largest salmon runs. Vestiges of the now-gone lakes are open for exploring as well as the area where the river meets the salt water. On a recent day, there were upwards of 40 bald eagles at the mouth of the river, plus 30 to 40 seals, all checking out the menu of seabirds and fish.
