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!

Wonderful place, great times

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful place for a wedding with 65 guests, some camping, some staying in the home.

Before hand, Byron was super helpful and responsive, answering all of my questions about the property and our needs in a timely manner. He was even accommodating in letting us stop by a few months ahead of time, so we could get the lay of the land. AND, we were able to have a full on pig roast, as we were hoping!

This was a perfect spot. for privacy, a big event, beautiful acreage, the river was gorgeous, and being just a couple miles from the ocean just made it perfect.

We will definitely keep this property in mind next time we want to have a gathering of a bunch of family and friends.

Byron, I can't thank you enough.

The house is fine, but the owner is not responsive.

  • 3 of 5

The owner promised to contact us for check in instruction, but he didn't. Instead, I called him, also text and email, no response.

He lives besides the property, that may be the reason he didn't give instruction ---- he assumes that guests will find him themselves.

We even considered to find another place to sleep. Luckily we decided to go to the house to see if we can get in.

The house is not kept very well. It's huge, but the bathroom on first floor doesn't work. I can see spider web on the windows.

Owner's Response: The bathroom works perfectly. These folks didn't pull the end of spout down for shower to work! The reception in my apartment has very poor reception. Everyone should be able to access the Hospitality page to gain entry to the home, no real need to contact me.

Overall enjoyed it

  • 4 of 5

The setting of the house on the pasture is lovely. The family room is large and conducive for many people. The kitchen is simple but easy to cook in and has nice natural light. The downstairs had a musty odor.

Had some problems

  • 1 of 5

This house has some nice features but not all usable, the view from the deck would be nice but a rotted post made us nervous about using it. The hot tub in the basement did not have a plug so it could not be filled. The worst part about our stay was the loud party that was being held on the owners property. The party culminated with fireworks at 11:30 pm that woke up our household including two scared children. When I went next door to complain the partiers thought it was funny that they work up Bryon's (the owner) renters. I called the owner the next day but he never bothered to return the message I left. No apology no explanation, nothing.

Owner's Response: So, first of all there is no rot at all in any part of the deck. Jacuzzi tub plug works fine. Some people don't get that it is push button and try to screw it. I did return Ed's message about the party, promising that those guests would be quieter in following nights.

It was a very nice place very adequate for our large family reunion. Plenty of beds for everyone and space for those that chose to camp. The last morning, a very large elk herd roamed in the meadow. I would recommend it as a place for a get away.
