Relax and unwind in the peaceful, woodsy setting. The quiet is addicting.
I was born and raised in Montana and my husband has been a woods-person his entire life. When we discovered the Lake Cushman area it was love at first sight; we've not seen anywhere as beautiful as it is right here! We've owned property in the area for most of the last 25 years and enjoy the outdoors all year.
Debra purchased this Cottage in 2017
Why Debra chose Hoodsport
The surroundings offer unspoiled forests, friendly wildlife, tall mountain peaks, three pristine lakes for any type of water sport, miles of trails out the front door, nearby access to popular hiking trails, a short drive to saltwater activities and fun local eateries and shops. The local residents are friendly, it's a small-town feel and a laid-back lifestyle. We call it "Cushman Time."
What makes this Cottage unique
We lived next door to the cottage and when it was listed in early 2017 we decided to purchase it and have space for friends and family's visits. As we dealt with the deferred maintenance and lack of upgrading we realized we had purchased a little gem and decided to offer it as a vacation rental. We are so in love with the area and are pleased to offer the opportunity to others.

You will not regret
You will not regret staying at this cute cottage. I was free to make my full meals because they had a variety of dishes, and if the place did not have a dish I needed the owners said they will let me borrow one. The place was clean. There was a variety of movies and games provided. There are two fire options: bonfire pit or a wood stove under the gazebo. Debra came over to welcome us and offered us marshmallows with our bonfire. Very nice people that make sure you are feeling welcomed and at a safe place. The tap water is top of the line palatable. There is plenty to do around the area if you enjoy hikes and being at rest next to a lake. I highly recommend.
My boyfriend and I rented Debra's Forest Cottage for a short weekend getaway, and had an amazing time. Everything was as depicted in the listing. The cottage was charming and cozy, with many extras provided by the host - toothbrushes, cooking supplies, tea, coffee, board games, rain coats by the door, the list goes on! Great location for hikers, we ended up summiting Mt. Rose one day (socked in, but a good workout and the snow at the top was beautiful), then taking a more relaxing hike at Dry Creek on our second day after a delightful breakfast at Nina's Cafe.
Our car ended up breaking down on Friday night when we were expected to check in (which was a bit of a nightmare as we were 2+ hours from home), and Debra was so sweet and communicative through the entire process. We were able to come on Saturday morning instead, and she offered to let us stay an extra night if we'd like. We opted to just check out late in the day, but really appreciated the thoughtfulness. If we could have, we would have stayed at the Cottage for many more nights!
Third time was a charm!
This was our third time staying at this property and we will continue to come back. Debra andWayne always do a great job making sure the property is clean and ready for visitors. They do a great job giving recommendations of activities and food options in the area. We always enjoy having a fire in the wood burning stove outside. Thanks again!
Beautiful property, super clean and full of little comforts. The property owners, Debra and Wayne, were amazingly hospitable and helped me a lot. All the little touches that Debra and Wayne went out of their way to provide made this the most comfortable place I have ever stayed away from home. Would Highly recommend for those who want to get away and enjoy the woods for a bit.
Perfect Place to Get Away from the Noise
Absolutely beautiful location, very quiet, convenient and close to the lake and Hoodsport town. The host greeted us when we arrived, and the whole week was a blissful getaway from the city noise. Especially during New Years, it was nice to be away from loud fireworks. Saw lots of wildlife just outside the cabin too!
We had a wonderful time in this intimate little cabin in the mountains. Debra and Wayne were very considerate hosts. The place is small but so comfortable and smartly laid out. Looking forward to returning!
