Lake Cushman is a beautiful reservoir lake at the base of the Olympic National Park. During the summer months the lake is kept at full capacity. This is when we enjoy the water with swimming and boating. In the fall to help with flood control, Tacoma Power lowers the lake level. During this time, it is difficult to launch a power boat and it is the time to enjoy the trails and views.

About Elisa Corcoran

On a lark we took a drive to Lake Cushman. It was only our second time there but we fell in love with this property and decided to buy it that day. In a way, it reminded us of our years living in Ireland. The weather changes yet we remain snug in the ease and contentment of our special place. Over the last ten years we have steadily improved our get away.

We would like to share this with you.

Elisa Corcoran purchased this house in 2003

Why Elisa Corcoran chose Hood Canal, Olympic Peninsula

Ten years ago we stumbled upon Lake Cushman and this beautiful house perched upon high ground with amazing views. We knew we had found our family get away spot. We loved the idea of owning just outside the National Park with all the activities in and around the lake.

What makes this house unique

In the summer when the lake is full, the water is warm and great for swimming. We can fish, hike, pick berries and hunt for mushrooms. When we did not own a boat we could rent one. The air is clean and the water is pure. It is usually very quiet and we can watch the deer, elk and birds. In Fall the vine maples provide wonderful color. Winter months can bring snow and the scenery takes on a whole different view.

Can't Be Beat...

  • 5 of 5

We live an hour away and come up to Lake Cushman a lot for weekend get-aways. We've stayed at a number of places here, and while they have all been wonderful, this is by far our favorite! It's clean, comfortable, spacious, and has a wonderful view! We spent a bit of time on the wrap around patio soaking in the sun, and even more time in the Sunroom... perfect place to sip on a cup of coffee on a drizzly morning and take in the serene sights of the Lake. A well maintained pathway led us down to the lower patio where we spent an evening stoking a camp fire and star-gazing. Just about everything you would want or need is here - The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of utensils, plates, and cups/glasses. There's also plenty of good cookware and spices. We found all the furniture to be comfortable, including the bed - I slept like a baby! It was super easy to settle in and relax. And most of all, working with the owners Elisa and Tim was a breeze. Instructions were clear and communication was quick. We will definitely be return renters, for sure!

Thank you!

Excellent cabin with views and access to the Olympic Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

An excellent location with views over Cushman Lake and the Olympic Peninsula. The cabin was well stock, clean and the gas fire place lovely. The surrounding area has access to the lake, many hiking trails of varying difficulty and the Olympic Peninsula in general. Five stars to the owners for this outstanding cabin as well as their responsive communication. Cheers!

Beautiful property, cozy house, amazing view

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my girlfriend for a few days, and it was everything we had hoped it would be and more. The house was incredibly cozy, and felt like home immediately. The layout was very friendly, and everything was exactly where you would expect it to be.

I would highly recommend this property to anybody interested in staying at Lake Cushman.

A cozy and warm home in a beautiful and peaceful place!

  • 5 of 5

This home on Lake Cushman had everything we needed to make for a memorable milestone birthday experience. The views were outstanding and the house was so cozy while still offering enough space to spread out a bit between 4 people. One of the things we all greatly appreciated was the stocked kitchen. It's so typical to find a vacation rental that only has a melted spatula and some dull knives for kitchen utensils, but The Snug offered so much more! Sharp knives, plenty of cooking pots and pans, bowls, etc. It was great. Everything lived up to our expectations and we will certainly consider staying here in the future. Thanks for a great stay!

Car: necessary

Most of the housing at Lake Cushman is governed by the 'Lake Cushman Maintenance Company'. Among other activities LCMC maintains the streets, water system, local community parks and boat docks and provides security patrols. Owners and Non-owners are required to display car passes on their cars when using they park at the several community parks. The owner is required to obtain guest passes good for 3 days at a time from LCMC during business hours in advance. They charge $10.00. Use of the boat launches also require a different pass. LCMC does not allow ANY boats to be tied up to a community dock overnight. This requires boat haul out each day. The launch fee does not apply to water craft that may be carried in and launched from shore. If you anticipate parking at the park or launching there please let us know in advance so we can procure the needed passes for you.

Parking at the lake shore along the Forest Service Road is free.

Olympic National Park charges an entry fee as well to enter at the 'Staircase Rapids' entry. They charge a minimum of $15.00 for a 3 day day use pass. Other types of passes are available also. We recommend a visit to the park.
