About Cynthia Reid

I love to hike, fish, swim and play near the water. Having grown up in a small town, living in the city can be quite a challenge for me. Spending time at the cabin is a great way for me to relax and unwind with my daughter and my two little pups.

Cynthia Reid purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Cynthia Reid chose Lilliwaup

We purchased our vacation home in 1999 and have loved every minute we have spent there. It is one of the rare waterfront canal homes that is located off the main highway so it is quiet and peaceful. Now that our daughter is a teenager, we are finding it hard to spend as much time as we'd like there. So we are taking this opportunity to share the beauty and charm of our little cabin with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Shep's Castle is a rare find on the canal. Located off Highway 101, it's a peaceful and quiet setting to relax, unwind, walk the dogs or play like crazy while crabbing, shrimping, fishing, swimming, etc. This place has it ALL!!

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Shep's Castle....a great place to unplug from computer, TV, and life's stresses and get rejuvenated (however, there is a DVD player and lots of movies to watch which was great). The cabin was perfect for our romantic getaway but would be great for a family bonding vacation too. Although there are other homes on the road, since the cabin has trees on both sides and the Hood Canal to the front, we felt completely secluded and it was so quiet, we felt like we were in the middle of no where, which was just what we needed. One morning we saw a mama and two babies seals floating by while eating breakfast. Also, gorgeous Lake Cushman is just a short drive away with lots of hiking trails. I definitely hope to return and have already recommended it to friends and family. Since the cabin is pet friendly, we were able to take our furry babies and they enjoyed it immensely! The cabin was very clean and well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and everything you need to cook. I can't say enough good things about Shep's Castle! :) No complaints here! :) The only thing I would mention, if a family stayed there or two couples and were wanting some "alone time", there are no doors on the bedrooms.

Hood Canal for Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Shep's Castle was fantastic. The house was perfect for our family and the location was great. The owner was very gracious and helpful with any questions that we had regarding our trip. Thanks again for a fantastic trip for our family during Oregon's Spring Break. We would definitely choose Shep's Castle for our next stay.

cozy family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great get-a-way. Easy to reach after work on Friday and home to Seattle by Sunday afternoon. The cabin was clean and cozy. The location on the water was so nice, with seals hanging out each day to entertain us. We would definitely go back.

Not Quite as Advertised

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this cabin for five nights on our way to a family event in Washington. After making the reservation, my sister and her son asked if they could join us for one night on their way to the same event. From the website, it appeared the additional charge would be $10 per person per night for a 3 night minimum, or $60 dollars. When I notified the owner, she said the additional cost would be $100. I questioned the rate, and received a defensive and unpleasant message explaining the $100 charge was necessary to cover the additional cost for the 2 guests one night stay. I do not have a problem with the owner charging rates she deems appropriate, but expect published rate information to be accurate. I hope this second and more public complaint results in a correction of the published guest rate information.

Owner's Response: I am very surprised by the use of the words "defensive and unpleasant". I try to have open and friendly conversations with all my guests. In this case I called VRBO and spoke with them and they and I both believe that the listing is very clear on the charges for extra guests. I do know the guests were very upset that they could not just pay for one add'l night for their guests but am taken aback by their review. I'm attaching my response to the guests initial argument below, if it seems abrasive I do honestly apologize, I thought I was just being thorough and as clear as I could. "I called VRBO and asked them about this situation. The rental rates state very clearly "Rates are based on 2 guests; add $10 per night, per additional guest" The rate I gave you for 2 guests was for 5 nights, thus the guest rates would equal 5 nights as well. According to VRBO since your initial reservation was for 2 guests it should remain at 2 guests and no unauthorized guests are allowed on the property, per my rental rules. If you would like to add them you will need to pay upfront, once again per VRBO. That being said, I have no problem adding the guests but the charge would be the full $100. I think I'd better agree with VRBO on this one and have you pay upfront so I know for sure I'm following their rules. When we fill out their super long and super detailed pricing forms, that is how they display the extra guest rates. I have not had anyone else question it or not understand it but I hope the VRBO answers have made it clearer. The reason my rental rules state "no unauthorized guests" is that even if they are there for the day I have extra garbage to be picked up, extra towels, extra wear on my septic and property and each of those costs me extra $$. That is why the return of the security deposit states that it "will not be refunded if there are unauthorized guests on the property". Thank you and let me know if you would like to add the extra guests for the price quoted and I will send you a booking request for them. As per my rental agreement, I will also need their full names and contact information. Cynthia"
