About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

When our guests arrive, they've found a gem... a private little piece of heaven. Instantly, they never forget this place.

Imagine looking out through these windows, to this view...from bed! Imagine the warmth of knotty pine, antique furniture, and artistic touches in every corner. And that's just the house. Now imagine grounds that sweep with gardened privacy. A shore with your own big deck, dock...and canoe. And that's just the grounds. Now imagine hosts with decades of experience in the hospitality business, who understand service and respect.

We are Madi and Randy Adams. We offer a great 'things to do list', but don't forget to schedule time to simply unwind in this peace of paradise. Soothe in the hot tub, cruise the lake in our canoe, and relax in the hammock from one of the most private and secluded settings on the lake.

In summary: Our location is perfect for exploring the Park (and all the other awesome things around here). Checking in is easy as pie (no need to pick up a key). Access to the highway is quick and easy (most houses on the lake are a pain). The home and grounds are simply smashing (lots of art and landscaping). The north-shore views will knock your socks off (not the case from the other shores). You get our red-letter attention (most places are cattle operations). You get privacy (most places on the lake are sandwiched in). You get rock solid memories (and isn't that what really matters!).

Sincerely, Madi and Randy Adams

Beyond Words

  • 5 of 5

Hands-down the most stunning property I've ever stayed in. This place is the reason someone had to invent the turn of phrase, "words don't do it justice." The owner Randy was amazingly responsive and hospitable--when the WIFI went down momentarily he went out of his way to make sure it got fixed, and just exuded hospitality through the brief contact we had. We absentmindedly left a few belongings at the end of our stay, which were shipped to us promptly at his own cost. We made amazing memories here and also somehow felt like we made a friend.

If I could give this place 10 stars, I would!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in our fair share of homeaway, vrbo, and airbnb rentals throughout the past few years - and my boyfriend and I both agree that this was our FAVORITE one thus far! We spent 4 nights and 5 days in this beautiful, magical, fairy-like cabin and what a fun time we had. From the moment we drove in, and saw the beautiful blue lake color glowing from behind the home, we knew we had made the right choice. The cabin is easy to drive to (Randy gives very detailed directions) .. there is plenty of privacy, we didn't run in to anyone the whole time we were there. The lake is gorgeous (if I haven't mentioned that already), I can imagine during summer months it is fun to jump in and take a dip, or go around in the canoe. But even now during the colder months, it is a joy to sit out in the deck and simply take it all in. Every morning we looked forward to sipping our coffee while enjoying the lovely misty foggy morning lake views. Many areas to relax outside around the home. And soooo much to do around town - our days were filled from morning to night with activities, and hikes, and wonderful drives. Randy will give you a ton of recommendations of things to do and see, and they are spot on! One thing that is important to note, which has been mentioned before, and will be mentioned to you again and again, is that you do need 4WD to go down the hill and park *right* in front of the cabin. We did not have 4WD and opted to use the secondary parking spot available a little higher up and we did not have any issue walking up and down the gravel road (with suitcases and grocery bags). Of course, it is much more convenient to park up front but if you don't have 4WD, don't let the short walk deter you from renting this cabin! It's worth it. Honestly, I have zero complaints. Randy was a joy to work with, always available via a quick text or email or phone call! One of the best hosts we've dealt with. If the opportunity ever arises, we would return in a jiffy! Thanks again Randy and Madi, from Jen and Joe from Florida. :) <3

Owner's Response: AWD (all wheel drive) works just as well on our driveway as 4WD...and is typically easier and cheaper to rent. When you book, I will gladly advise.

Great lake house and great views

  • 5 of 5

No regrets here...besides not having a full day to just relax at the house. Everything about the house was great and the views were nice and nearly 100% private from neighbors (though we never actually saw them). Slept like a baby after adventuring all day. Enjoyed star gazing on the dock at night and of course soaking in the tub after the day of driving and hiking. During our stay (mid Sept) lake was pretty empty so very quiet besides the occasional boat. Was nice to be greeted by a family of deer upon our arrival. Thanks for sharing your place with us!!

Beautiful peaceful house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We loved this charming lake house from the moment we arrived. The lake is beautiful and the multiple decks and dock encourage the outside use of the house. There is a very nice canoe for use by the guests. Randy was the perfect host, available for any questions and very easy to deal with and communicative. He had great suggestions about what to do in the area and in the park. The house is nicely situated to get to the southern beaches, hurricane ridge and the rainforest. The personal touches and artwork both inside and outside the house really made the house homey. This was one of the nicest homeaway properties we have stayed in. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you need and very good quality. The wifi was good. The hot tub was very clean and in a perfect location for viewing the lake. Please note that 4wd or AWD is a necessity to get into and out of the driveway down to the house. There is an alternative parking place up the driveway but it is nice to be able to unload groceries etc. right at the house. We would absolutely return.

About Randy Adams

My wife and I have decades in the hospitality business, with an undergraduate degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management, and management experience at several well known bed and breakfasts on the California Mendocino coast. As well, we are both successful, professional artists and collectors, which shows throughout the house. As your hosts, we are serious about assuring that you will be pinching yourself during your stay. We live near by, which allows attention to your needs throughout your stay, while respecting your privacy. It is, simply, our goal to help make your stay as memorable as possible.

Randy Adams purchased this house in 2004

Why Randy Adams chose Port Angeles

After getting to know Lake Sutherland, we waited for this property to come on the market. It's rather special. Not just the house, but the setting. Because it's on the north shore, the view out over the lake includes the massive soaring boundary ridges of the Olympics. The house, the setting, and the view. Just plain wow.

What makes this house unique

This place can't be beat for: 1) Exploring the Olympic National Park. The proximity is fantastic. Some of the best hikes are nearby. Spectacular waterfalls and old growth virgin forests dripping with moss and ferns (Olympic National Park holds the worlds largest temperate rain forest). 2) Enjoying an incredible view right outside your window. Our 'wall of windows' looks out over a jaw-dropping vista of water and mountain scape. 3) Our attention to detail, and to bending over backwards to accommodate you. Our guest book gushes with thanks and praise. 4) All the other things to trip to Victoria BC from a ferry right out of Port Angeles, river rafting the famous Elwha, fishing off the dock, or chartering out of Neah goes on and on! We know what there is to do, and are happy to help you plan your moments.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have never seen so many stars as I have here above the emerald lake. I love the mountains which rise from the water. Attention to detail, inside and out, makes this a great house. Everything is ready to go. This is the most relaxed I have been in years and I dread returning to the rush of Seattle.

Outstanding location for exploring the Olympic National Park, Pacific beaches, Lake Crescent, and of course Lake Sutherland. There isn't another property like ours. When you arrive, and take it all in, you will realize you have found a little piece of heaven... truly magical. Perhaps the most obvious attraction is the setting on the lake, and the view across to Storm King Ridge. Besides all the activities, this is the place for unwinding, deep breathing, first honeymooning, second honeymooning, serious romancing.
