About the Property

Private Main Cabin and Spa Cabin directly on the River

Zen River Retreat is our Shangri-La on the Olympic Peninsula...a rainforest refuge of enchanting river gardens with three private lodgings tucked within: the Zen Cabin, the Buddha Cabin, and the Host Cabin---any of which may be rented independently or together for larger group occasions.

The Zen Cabin (Cabin 1) is perched in the north woods, where the Little Quilcene river flows through a lush forest canyon. Gravel paths meander gardens of giant ferns, ancient cedars, and twisting vine maples. Wooden bridges connect your main cabin with your spa cabin, and the covered deck with the hottub overlooking the river. Exceptionally peaceful, private, and just 2 hours from Seattle, the Zen Cabin is ideal for romantic weekend getaways, smaller-family vacations, and personal wellness retreats.

The Zen Cabin sleeps four persons comfortably--fully equipped and furnished for entertaining, cooking, relaxing and slumbering in comfort with touches of the Far East.
Wood-Burning Stove and WiFi included.

The Spa Cabin is your private recreation and restoration space. The heated tile floor make it cozy for writing, dining or games at the table, naps on the daybed or barefoot lounging between soaks in the hottub. Terrycloth robes provided.

Massage and other holistic therapies are available for singles, couples or groups. The spa cabin becomes your personal wellness center while your professional healer restores you. Soothing music, candles, and natural oils provided.

Surrounded by a vast natural wonderland of saltwater bays, serene lakes, and the breathtaking Olympic Mountains, Zen River guests have plenty to explore nearby.
Local attractions include charming seaside towns, arts and music festivals, organic farms and wineries, boating, fishing, and hiking to incredible summits and waterfalls...all within easy reach of Zen River Retreat.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I grew up on the eastern side of the Puget Sound, but have loved the Olympic Peninsula since I can remember. My grandparents had a charming little cottage in Port Townsend which my family visited often, exploring the whole region in the process. From the beaches around PT to the rugged Pacific Coast, from cascading rivers in the Olympic Mountains to the mossy wonders of the Hoh Rainforest. It was a wonderland I dreamed of making my home....and eventually that dream came true.
