Guestbook comments from the owner
By Liz (olympia WA)

This house is perfect for a large gathering of people with diverse interests. Our fishermen fished each day (and CAUGHT a steelhead); our walkers went to the beach each day, and our cooks and sitters sat happily by the fireplace in the main room , cooking, reading and talking. New Year's Eve we sat around the fireplace and told stories -- and watched the fireworks from La Push (or maybe Rialto Beach?) which was a lovely little bonus!

Wonderful private country home for large groups

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a weekend here for our family reunion. We had a very large group with lots of kids and adults plus several seniors in wheelchairs. The space was great and we had great fun exploring Sol Duc falls and Merrimer Falls. The teens had a lot of fun building a fire in the extra large fire pit every evening. The owner provided plenty of wood for the fire pit. There were lots of movies and books as well as games for the kids. Our group gets pretty loud when you get 25 of us together and we never felt like we were intruding on anyone. The river was close but not accessible for the disabled. All in all it was a great time and we plan to go back next year!

Awesome House, beautiful view, fabulous location, tranquil and convenient

  • 5 of 5
This was our great escape from the heat of south Florida in September! This house had everything we needed! We were looking for peace and tranquility and the Bogi house is where we found it. Since we like to explore the great outdoors, this was a really good location to visit the Hoh Rain Forest, Rialto Beach, 2nd Beach and so many more places. We loved our stay here, would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends and relatives. Thanks, Byron, for a really nice experience.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We were married on the property and stayed for a couple of days afterward....we did not want to leave! This property was everything we desired. So easy to just relax and enjoy! The views were beautiful, and the stars were gorgeous at night! There was so much to see...the river and a very short drive to the beach.
Thanks to Byron for being so a accommodating! Wedding guests were able to camp on the property. We were able to bring our dogs....who also did not want to leave!
We will be back again! Would recommend this vacation rental to anyone who wants a good taste of the Olympic Peninsula...the possibilities for adventure are endless...you can't see it all in one stay :)

Excellent Oly Penn Access

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time while stayng at the Bogachiel River property. Relatives from the East Coast were in town for a wedding, and we had plenty of room to house everyone comfortably. Went to beaches hikes, rain forests - easy access from this well situated home. We cooked dinners, and also had a hot dog roast at the fire pit. Byron was easy to work with and we look forward to another visit.

outdoor enthusiast dream

  • 5 of 5
I had such a wonderful time there over Labor Day weekend 2011. The house is really large,and each room is about double the size of an average seattle bedroom. Inside there was lots of books about surfing and local recreation. Great windows facing an open field, which was perfect for keeping an eye on our dog as he pounced around in the field below. The place is set up so all you need to bring is your clothes. Theres a box of outdoor toys like kickballs, frisbees, and baseball gloves (the kind of things you never think of but wish you had when your there. Huge deck with two BBQ's (propane $ charcoal) stocked and ready to go. Flat screen t.v's and a descent selection of movies ( i actually watched two good movies i haven't seen before).

The best part is location! The each morning after a 5 minute drive and a 100yd walk on a scenic trail i was surfing on some really nice water. Later in the day when the rest of the house woke up and we had ate breakfast we all explored the property together and found a little swimming hole on the river that you could dive off fallen logs. The river current is pretty mellow later that same evening before dinner i paddled my white water kayak up stream about 1/2 mile and then drifted back.

Lots of wildlife around, and though are encounter with Byron was brief I found him to be a very amiable person, and an excellent host!

It's really a blessing to have a place like this available for the public to enjoy some of washingtons finest treasures. I would highly recommend this vacation rental!

Awesome place for any purpose

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in here a few times over the past 3 years. Two trips with small groups of friends and one huge wedding! We were married on the property and Byron and Jennifer were amazingly supportive of our effort to have the attendees camp in the meadow. We have caught fish in the river, seen elk in the field, and used the great location as a jumpoff point to visit the other amazing parts of the Olympic Peninsula. We are due to make a trip back soon, maybe to do some surfing this time!
