COZY FRESHWATER BAY / ELWHA RIVER CABIN

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.

Jean Fleischfresser purchased this cabin in 2009

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.

Lovely little getaway

  • 5 of 5
Very clean and comfortable place right near the beach. Had everything we needed for an extended weekend. Quiet surroundings, and you can hear the waves from the house. Some lovely touches on the inside -- loved the breakfast bar made from a tree slab.

Great Cabin for Exploring Olympic National Park

  • 5 of 5
We just got back from a ten day vacation in Olympic National Park and spent our first 5 nights at Jean and Ricardo's cabin. It was clean and cozy and had everything we needed in the kitchen and bathrooms with plenty of room for our family of four to spread out. We walked across the street to the beach every day (which was usually almost empty) and took in the gorgeous sunsets every night. We hiked the northern parts of Olympic National Park - both the Hurricane Ridge ranger station and the Elwah River Valley were within a 30 minute drive and did some whitewater rafting on the a Elwah River as well. Less than 15 minutes away, Port Angeles had several grocery stores to stock up in any needed supplies but the cabin itself felt secluded and remote tucked away in a little coastal neighborhood. We loved our time here and would definitely come back again. Thanks for offering your beautiful place on VRBO!! :-)

Pacific Coast Gem!

Fantastic stay and wonderful hosts. A peaceful property with comfortable beds, amazing scenery, and just steps from the beach. Close to everything we wanted to see. We would stay there again without hesitation.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
The Elwha River Cabin is really a gem we have been lucky to find. The location is amazing, close to Port Angeles and strategically located to easily access all major attractions of the Peninsula (Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Forest, the Pacific beaches...).

Besides being well furnished and equipped, the most exquisite part is that the cabin is only 30 seconds away from the beach!

The owners have been really helpful making our stay wonderfully easy.

This cabin is really a place in Paradise! We will come again when we are back to the Peninsula.

Peaceful, Beautiful Setting

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this cozy cabin. The cabin feels like home with everything you need to have a comfortable, relaxing and truly enjoyable stay. It's a short walk to the beach and the Elwah River where we watched harbor seals enjoying the bay and enjoyed beautiful sunsets. The bay is also great for bird watching! The location is very convenient to Port Angeles and the Olympic National Park. The owners, Jean and Ricardo, provided us with lots of great information about the local area, sights to see and things to do. We'd highly recommend this lovely cabin in a truly beautiful setting.

Tucked away Paradise

  • 5 of 5
It was perfect for our family get away. Rustic enough to make you feel the adventure but accommodating enough to not spoil or delay our plans. Kitchen is well equipped. Also washer & dryer. Quiet neighborhood and close to the ocean as well as many destinations in the Port Angeles area. If we come again, we will stay again!
