Port Angeles Cabin Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom, 2 bathroom (with extra futon) only 150 yards from beach
This 1200 sq ft cabin is part of a larger property, with the main house across the street, set on the east end of Freshwater Bay, with views of the Straits and Vancouver Island to the north, and snow-capped Olympic Mountain are to the south. While you can hear the waves from the cabin, you must walk to the front of the property to view the beach and watch the sunsets. The Elwha river estuary is a short walk away and is well known for surfing and kite boarding. The dam removal project is almost complete and the legendary native Chinook salmon have returned. The Olympic National Park and surrounds are ideal for bird watching, hiking, kayaking, mountain biking, crabbing and fishing. Hurricane Ridge, popular for spring and summer wildflowers, is one of the best spots in the Northwest to cross country ski, snowboard and snowshoe. In the Fall the area is abundant with wild mushrooms. The year-round Port Angeles farmer's market offers wonderful produce to complement your meal of fresh caught salmon and dungeness crab. Victoria BC is an hour ferry ride from downtown Port Angeles.
The cabin is perfect for four, but can accommodate up to 6 people comfortably. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The larger bedroom has a double bed, the smaller has twin beds, and there is a futon in the living room. The kitchen is well equipped and has culinary basics (flour, oats, sugar, spices etc..). French doors open up to deck with small table and rocking chairs. Guests have access to the no-bank beach, stone grill and fire pit, which are framed by 300 year old wind blown firs.
Our daily rate includes both cleaning and taxes. We look forward to your visit.

We live and work on Bainbridge Island. Our children grew up snowboarding (while we snowshoed) on Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Park. During the summers we would camp and hike. We bought this property along the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Port Angeles in 2009, the year our youngest went off to college. All three of our children went from thinking it was a crazy idea to: our eldest getting married on the property, our middle child purchasing a Port Angeles home, and the youngest frequently heading out with a group of friends to hike and surf.
It is rare to find a no bank beach along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The Olympic National Park is an amazing treasure and it is literally in our back yard. You can walk the entire 3.8 miles of Freshwater Bay (at 5' tide or lower) and see unique rock formation and sea creature laden tide pools.
You can paddle out, drop a crab pot, and a couple of hours later haul in your 'limit', boil them up and sit at the picnic table on the beach enjoying your uniquely Northwest meal.
