Guestbook comments from the owner
This retreat is wonderful. It is decorated with a designer's touch, but in a very cozy and inviting way. All amenities that you need such as fridge, stove, etc... The grounds are beautiful, easy access to some nearby shops for supplies and central access to other fun activities on the peninsula. We stayed in the house comfortably with 4 adults and a toddler.

Hi, my name is Jochen and I am the owner of Landhaus Quilcene. Originally from Germany, I have called the Seattle area home for over twenty years now. I have created this private forest retreat for my family and friends in the German Landhaus ('country house') tradition. When time allows, we come here to relax, talk, play games, sit by the fire, watch a movie, go hiking, explore nearby towns, and, above all, forget the stress of the work week. Since my family and I are using the Landhaus frequently ourselves, we have taken great care of maintaining and decorating it to make everyone feel welcome and create a great experience in the country.

Jochen Liesche purchased this cabin in 2005

Everybody who has stayed here always had a great time and mentions how relaxed they felt afterwards due to the serene forest setting and fresh air. Many of our guests have come back year after year and our guest book is full with nothing but compliments and people's fond memories of the time they spent here.

All guests love our screened and covered sun porch that allows them to sit outside and enjoy the nature views of the surrounding forest and Dabob valley even if it should rain. A quartz heater provides warmth outside when the temperatures drop. The two adjacent heated guest cabins are very cozy and afford their residents a lot of privacy while being only steps away from the main house.

It was perfect. Quiet, beautiful and large. Had everything we needed. Would just suggest more bathroom lighting and more mirrors. It was very homey and wonderful. We would stay here again for sure. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments, Jenna. We are glad your party had a good time at the Landhaus. The bathroom light actually has a dimmer switch, and that may have been turned down, which would account for the low light situation... :-)

BEAUTIFUL, COMFORTABLE & FUN

Beautiful, comfortable & fun

We returned from our stay yesterday & already want to book our next visit! There was ample room for 2 couples, 2 nine month olds & a big dog without using the small 1 BR cabins (which were adorable). The kitchen was well appointed, the decor was the perfect blend of cabin kitsch & modern comfort. It was far enough from everything to be quiet & secluded and close enough for us to hit up the cideries and Port Townsend. I will be recommending this place to friends for future cabin weekends.

THE PERFECT RAINY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect fall retreat in the woods. A group of 8 of us headed over to the peninsula from Seattle for the 1st Annual Quilcene Half Marathon for what was one of the rainiest weekends on record. The home and cabins were clean and well-maintained and I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of the photos and the beauty of the property. The kitchen was well-stocked and made creating group meals really fun. The dining room table was perfect to gather around for carb-loading and game-playing. I would definitely recommend this rental and I hope to return again. I can only imagine how nice the sun room is in warmer weather.

OUR CABIN IN THE WOODS (FOR A WEEKEND)

  • 4 of 5
Perfectly situated on the Olympic Peninsula, Landhaus Quilcene is a lovely retreat from city life. We loved the main house which includes a sizeable kitchen, a cozy living room, a dining room, and two nice-sized bedrooms. We also enjoyed the wrap-around deck and screened in porch. The two guest cabins are very charming and private and those who stayed in them really enjoyed having their personal space.

Had our group been any larger, I think that the one-bathroom situation might have been more challenging. But it was workable.

The photos of the cabin are accurate, but were likely taken professionally - they make the property look significantly larger than it is. However, the spaces aren't small by any means.

There are two grocery stores in Quilcene and I very much enjoyed shopping at the Quilcene Village Store - lots of local products and very friendly people. I also highly recommend a meal at the Halfway House in Brinnon, stave room for the pie!

The owner was a fantastic communicator and excelled at responding to questions quickly.

LOVELY, CLEAN, WELL EQUIPPED PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We just spent a very enjoyable weekend at the Landhaus. The house was spotless and the property was located close to the main road but it still felt like you were in the middle of the forest. The house was well equipped with kitchen supplies, glasses, towels, bedding, and games. One of the best we've stayed in. The little sleeping cabins were cozy and charming. Our only difficulty was having one bathroom for 8 people, but we knew that going in. Close to Oyster beaches in Quilcene and Finnriver farm for cider tasting. Both the check in and check out process were seamless.

PERFECT FOR A WEEKEND AWAY FROM IT ALL

  • 5 of 5
We've spent a couple of weekends at this gorgeous country house. Tucked away in the forest off the main road, the house provides a unique wooded retreat but with all the modern amenities. We are particularly impressed by the screened in porch, perfect for reading, conversation, or a long summer nap. The rooms are exquisitely decorated but also with a sense of humor. The large wooden carved moose head is one detail not to be missed. Since our first visit, they've also installed a large screen TV and now have high speed internet access. The kitchen is fully appointed with and all the appliances have been updated. Really, it's just like coming home.

The proximity to hiking and other outdoor activities as well as the thriving cultural center of Port Townsend means that there's something for everyone.

The owners are extremely gracious hosts and the premises have always been in impeccable condition. The listing photos in this case are spot on, and if anything under-represent the beauty of the locale. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for an escape to the Olympic peninsula.
