Property description

'Like waking from a dream'... that's a typical reaction to this romantic property. When you arrive, you will realize you have found a private little piece of heaven. Ours is a world class treasure, truly a gem in the Olympics...and it is perfectly located for exploring the Olympic National Park.

Check-in is a breeze, and each booking is given meticulous attention to detail. It's important for us to work directly with you. Please email using the link on this page to discuss your interest. We will reply promptly.

Imagine looking out through a twenty foot wall of windows, to a soaring vista of sparkling emerald water and a deep layering of Olympic valleys and peaks. Our view can't be had with properties on the crowded south shore.

Built by a cabinet maker, the house embraces you with the warmth of knotty pine. With an emphasis on intimacy, the home offers artistic touches in every corner. In the morning, lie in bed and watch wisps of fog dance through the valleys in the far cliffs. . 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.

Our location is perfect for exploring the grandeur of the Olympic National Park, including its pristine beaches. And, compared with most properties on the lake, getting in/out to the hwy is a relative breeze. There's so much to do and see. We know the area well, and are happy to help make your visit as memorable as possible.

After ten nine years, we have two guest books filled with praising parting thoughts. So get in touch to start your stay. You will never forget your experience here.

Car: Necessary

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.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: 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 make your stay as memorable as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Port Angeles, WA, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
