Brandie Hoyt purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Brandie Hoyt chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

My husband built our home from the ground up with his two hands he loves to fish and loves the river so he picked the location it was his before i came along. We decided to turn half of our property to a camp ground to creat an experance of a stress free camping trip without all the extra luggage we have it for you here!

What makes this cottage unique

The veiw of the Sol duc river, the smell of the salt water in the air from the beaches all around the off the grid feel away from the rat race!

Fantastic camping experience!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of three with a little boy who is 6. We couldn't be happier staying here! Now you have to understand if you want to camp in April near the rain forest you might run into rain. Luckily it was dry during the day and rained at night while we slept. But we knew what we were getting into, and don't mind roughing it. The tents were awesome, ZERO leaks too. We had fun going to the river and walking the trails. The cots are well made, all of the sheets were clean, even soft, fluffy throw blankets to use. The surrounding tents were really nice too, they even had a playground and hammocks at each site. The porta potties are the cleanest I have ever used (and I have used many lol..) The host family was so sweet to us. It really made the trip more enjoyable because they even brought us fresh crab upon arrival! They brought us fish and chips the second night, hand delivered it to us too. The hosts are gracious, kind, and quite helpful. My favorite part of the trip was cooking inside on the propane stove. It brought me back to childhood adventures in Oregon with my parents. We are beyond happy about choosing this place to stay at. We will be back again in the Summer for more fun too! Thank you for the prefect camping getaway!!!

Glamping at it's best

  • 4 of 5

This is a great experience for people on the go or people that do not have all the camping equipment but want to have the camping experience. Michelle and her family have it all set up for you. The tents are spacious and cozy. So cozy you don't even have to leave them. However the surrounding sites will draw you out. The campsite is on the river and tents are on the rivers edge to fish right from your campsite. Michelle makes sure that you have everything and checks on you on a daily basis to make sure things are going well and you are having a great time. Their outdoor showers are amazing and the firewood is overflowing. No need to bring ANYTHING except food and clothing. You will need to bring towels for the showers, but if you did not have any I am positive she would grab one for you. We had a great time, and got to know the neighbor cows very well. :-)

Glamping on the peninsula

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful couple nights at Michelle's intents camping. She welcomed us, brought us a cooler of ice and some fresh crab and smoked salmon. The tent was stocked with everything we needed. We were on the Sol Duc River which was beautiful and peaceful to hear and see. We would definitely go back again.

Can't seem to book this property! HELP.

  • 3 of 5

I really need help with this property. According to this listing the Host has 90% response rate.

I have been trying to book this for 4 days now. It doesn't want to book - you need to first message the owner. Which I have done several times now. I still can't book this property.

Please help.

I don't know where to start. This was a nightmare. First let me start by saying that the pictures in the above ad ARE NOT pictures of the current tents. Those tents are no longer there, nor is any of the equipment pictured. What you actually pull up to is a run down parking lot with run down tents. There is trash everywhere, old moldy toys, rusty chairs, old lumber and mud EVERYWHERE covering EVERYTHING. (I actually got stuck in mud) Inside the tents were NOT the beautiful 7 inch mats pictured. There were thin small cots with dirty sleeping bags tossed on. There were also no wood stoves as pictured with " unlimited firewood". There were 2 little propane heaters. Only 1 worked. There was no coffee maker as advertised. No grill that was usable as advertised. We decided to try to cook on little propane stove. It took 20 minutes to get it to work. We grabbed a pan to start cooking. It was covered in mold. Picked up another one. Same thing. Every dish, utensil or pan was dirty or covered in mold. Went to wash them and there was only a sponge that was laying in a puddle of rain water. That was all that was available. It started pouring outside at about this time and a moment later we noticed several areas of the tent leaking. We had enough at this point and decided to leave. We packed up and stopped to tell owner we were leaving and why. She offered no apologies. She didn't seem to want to take responsibility for the false advertising. I'm sure she will defend herself in a rebuttal, but if you want the truth, just drive out to the camp site and see for yourself. It is easily accessible off main road. We will not be back and will be spreading the word about this camp site.

Owner's Response: Dear Carolyn and/or future guests, We sincerely apologize about your unfortunate experience, this is truly not our intention. We strive for every customer of ours to have a great camping experience. Our goal as a small campsite is to provide a easy fun affordable camping experience, we have customers who come from all over the world who love to camp and love that they get to do that with out the hassle of set up and having to bring all there gear. I apologize you did not feel like it was what was advertised. we appreciate the feedback so we can take your points into consideration so we can be sure that all our future guest get the experience they are looking for. I sent Carolyn an email apologizing for her experience and provided her with a refund without a request, because it is our goal to provide a better experience regardless of the situation. RE: The pictures are a bit outdated I will get some new ones up asap, i can assure you we have the same tents pictured, we did treat the tents with waterproofing that is a different color so the tents are different in color, we are having a very wet year wetter then any year we have had so its a bit muddy out there, we have added some gravel to control the mud and water retention, as well as we can till it can dry out a bit. Customers car did get stuck and we washed the mud off her car for her. We replaced the wood-stoves due to safety and heating efficiency to the Mr Buddy portable propane heaters, one heater heats a 200 sq ft room with no problem and we have more on hand, one of the heaters was having some difficultly staying lit. We have hard water from our well source without a filter the white residue on the dishes was not mold it is calcium & magnesium ions form the hard water. Toys where dragged out there by our grand kids and have been removed. The cots have been replaced to ones without air due to customers popping them, we had brand new comforters and sheets that have never been used on the cots, we provide comforters or sleeping bags based on preference. Our dish washing stations are outside so the water does not damage the tents we are working on relocating them to a separate tent designated to this. Coffee makers are camp coffee peculators, please understand we are a small family business we love what we do and we truly want everyone to be happy, we are located on site so if you have any questions concerns or need anything we are happy to help! please due stop by or call if you have any questions.
