About Byron Brassfield

Why Byron Brassfield chose Olympic Peninsula

This is the most private and unique property I know of. Great for large gathering or just a quiet over night escape.

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!

I eve got a surprise visit from my daughter and grandprince from Virginia. So we went out to Lapush the last day it is so beautiful out there. She and her friends are still into Twilight so she got to be a tourist that day also. So Thank you again we look forward to next year.

Great house for a family get together!

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious home with peaceful views, a large living room, dining table for 10, two refrigerators, 3 bathrooms, and lots of bedrooms for the whole family to get together. Nice space outside with a fire pit for the night before our daughter's wedding celebration. Close to the La Push beaches and hikes. We had a wonderful time. Thank you, Connie, Joe and family

Gorgeous property

80 acres of peace and calm. The river is great for spending the day and the house is simple but functional.

Perfect country vacation near beaches and mountains!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week vacation with our grown children and grandchildren:) there were 15 of us and the house accommodated us all plus a friend who came and stayed in a tent and went surfing every morning:)

I didn't know what to expect, but was pleased with the home. Rustic yet charming, nice, but not so nice that you had to worry about kids playing and giant messy family dinners!! Was slightly worried about the previous review, but found that the things mentioned were taken care of or not that big of a deal.

The scenery was beautiful! Friendly horses (one of which absolutely adored the kids!!), cows and bald eagles that nest in the dead tree across the pasture:)

We brought our quads for tooling around the property and my 6 year old grandson had a blast in the river with his brand new kayak!

Daily jaunts down to swim in the beautiful river on the property, a couple miles to some of the most beautiful beaches in Washington state!

Picnicking in La Push! Hiking Second and Third Beach! Watching glorious sunsets at Rialto Beach! Fishing, swimming and kayaking the Bogachiel River! Day trip to the Olympic National Forest and hiking the "Hall of Mosses"!! Forks and their awesome grocery store and merchantile that had pretty much everything!! Watching the Vampire Meter at the little store down the road with the grand daughters and keeping an eye out for Edward and Bella😉򒐡!

The house is by no means spotless, and if you want to stay at a 5 star rental, look somewhere else. But if you want an amazing adventure and can handle a cobweb here and there and some good old country living, Byron's home is perfect for you! Don't forget to watch for the brightest shooting stars you will ever see while sipping wine on the deck!! Enjoy!!

And thanks Byron, for your hospitality!!
