Established in 2000, the Moose House has been a welcoming retreat for hundreds of guests. A very comfortable and cutely decorated cabin in a forest setting - fully equipped and ready to move in for your weekend getaway or memorable vacation. Located on Lake Cushman on the Olympic Peninsula and a short distance from the south end of Olympic National Park. Highway 101 and the the beautiful Hood Canal are only 7 miles away where you can also enjoy wonderful sightseeing and saltwater activities.

Cabin in the Woods: With it's natural wood cathedral ceilings, large picture windows and beautiful views of the forest, the Moose House is perfect for summer vacations or quiet winter getaways. The kitchen has all the conveniences of home. The living room has comfortable seating, a book shelf full of many wonderful adult and children's books, and a large library of movies. We also have a basket full of maps, brochures, and information about the area. The large loft is a favorite with children and includes a very comfortable seating area which looks out into the forest. The living room has a gas stove with the wood stove look. The campfire pit out back is located right next to the forest for the feeling of camping out while still enjoying the amenities of home!

The park has a playground, picnic area, horseshoe pits, beach, dock, launch ramp, and beautiful views of the Olympic Mountains. Activities include boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, boardsailing, jet skiing, and just relaxing in the sun. There are also many miles of hiking trails nearby in Camp Cushman, Olympic National Park, and Olympic National Forest. Lake Cushman Golf Course and Tennis Courts are 4 miles away.

We have lived in Oregon for 15 years. Paul works for the City of Portland and I for a non profit agency in our home in Salem. We are outdoor enthusiasts and love our time spent at The Moose House - whether we're enjoying our boat out on the lake, hiking a nearby trail, or just relaxing inside watching a movie or reading a book. Unfortunately, we live 200 miles from The Moose House, so we aren't able to enjoy it as much as we would like. We are considering retirement there, but until that time, we love to share it with others who enjoy it as much as we do.

Paul & Peggy Gleason purchased this cabin in 2000

We first saw Lake Cushman when Paul was getting certified to scuba dive in the Hood Canal late in November of 1999. I drove up to the Lake to find a place to hike and fell in love with it. A few months later we made a trip up there to look at cabins for sale. We felt it would be a great getaway location for our family as well as a possible retirement community.

We looked at many cabins, but chose The Moose House because of it's very close proximity to the Lake and Community Park, large and fairly private lot, high vaulted ceilings, big picture windows and the overall feel of home. We have never regretted our decision. The Moose House has been a vacation rental since the year 2000 and has become the most well known and best loved rental in the area. Many of our guests return year after year and think of this cabin as their own home. Our cabin is the perfect home for our large collection of mooses, and children love trying to count them all. This home is lovingly cared for by our nearby managers and always kept very clean and well appointed. Our guests come to our cabin to celebrate many special occasions including honeymoons, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, and one couple even returned to have their wedding there. We've had guests from all over the country and the world, and even a famous movie star! Book your weekend getaway or memorable vacation now and become one of the hundreds of very happy Moose House Alumni!

Wonderful place to stay

My friends and I stayed at the Moose House to have a scrapbook weekend. I was so impressed with how clean it was. We loved all the windows that look directly out to the woods. It feels so serene. The owner is very easy to work with and very friendly. We loved it so much that we are going again next weekend. Another thing that I loved is that it didn't cost us our left arm to rent it and that she doesn't charge a house keeping fee. As long as you clean, clean, clean when leave and leave it how you found it, it is all good! I am so thankful that we found the Moose House, we will definately be using it frequently.

Peggy is wonderful. Sent us everything we would need to know and bring a week before our reservation. We felt right at home the moment we walked in. I can see why this is the best cabin to rent on Lake Cushman. The house was clean and "user" friendly. Everything just seem to fit us perfectly. We are avid hikers and everything is so close. It was nice to come home to a warm cabin after a long hike on a rainy day. Even got to wash all our dirty clothes (not have to pack them home with us). The Olympics are right there, Mt. Rose, and Mt. Ellinor too. Great climbs! We will definitely be returning to rent the Moose Cabin. It was also pleasant to read the guest books and get a feel for everyone else's experience as well. Very reasonable rates too. Peggy, the proud owner (as I can see why) was very easy to work with. Did the majority of the transaction online and she was very patient with me.

Great cabin by the lake

Great cabin for our family. The cabin was really clean and ready for use. It is a very short walk to the lake and swimming area for the kids. The fire pit was secluded and gave the feel of being deep in the woods. Overall great vacation spot. I would definitely recommend it to friends.
