Port Angeles House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

You won't find anything better if you want a natural, peaceful, private Pacific Northwest experience! Serenity awaits you. THE COMPASS ROSE HOUSE is one of three separate homes on over 20 acres, all with Olympic Mountain views. These secluded rentals offer you a haven to explore all the diversity the Olympic Peninsula has to offer. Roam our lush lupine covered meadows, languish by the ponds, see Bald Eagles and Blue Heron and access The Olympic National Park, just minutes away.

The THE COMPASS ROSE HOUSE is carefully handcrafted and meticulously detailed. This beautiful home has commanding views of the Olympic Mountains and the large pond. The open plan with vaulted ceilings feels very roomy and open to nature while also being cozy. This charming cedar home is ideal for couples, but can accommodate up to 7.

The master bedroom looks onto the Lupine Pond, a 1/2 acre trout-filled pond that reflects the mountain views and attracts a large variety of birds. An upstairs room, open to the lower level, and accessed by a 'ship's ladder', has a view of the pond and the lovely private, surrounding meadows.

Enjoy cooking in the deluxe kitchen, well equipped with all the cooking amenities, staples and spices and a gas stove, oven, large refrigerator and island. The bathroom with walk-in large tiled shower comes equipped with washer and dryer.

There is wood stove with a glass door so you can watch the fire and curl up with a good book, or simply enjoy the comfort of the radiant heated floors.

The sliding glass doors open to a large deck where you can take in the awesome Olympic Mountains and the acres of natural, unspoiled meadows. Have a barbecue, watch the Bald Eagles as they dive for trout in the pond. Gaze at the stars at night, roast marshmallows around the fire pit, roam the meadows or take an adventure into Olympic National Park.

THE COMPASS ROSE HOUSE can also be rented for groups along with our other two cabins. See our other VRBO listings.

Ten minutes away are Sequim and Port Angeles, the world’s longest sand spit, the ferry to Victoria, B.C., Canada and the entrance to Olympic National Park, where the road to Hurricane Ridge takes you to a stunning view of active glaciers in the Olympic Mountains.

Within minutes you can venture into the moss covered rain forest, enjoy a pristine glacier carved lake, hike hundreds of miles of wilderness trails with crystal clear rivers and majestic waterfalls, be awed by the sandy rugged beaches, and soak in natural hot springs.

Whether you are a nature lover who likes to kayak, surf, fish, spot birds, watch whales, bike or hike the trails, or someone who is search of a perfect quiet natural setting, here you will find your heart’s desire.

About Suzann Pilot

Martin and Suzann are owners and full-time managers of Olympic View Cabins. They are close by so are available whenever you might need. Their son designed and built the cedar Compass Rose House in 2010.

Suzann Pilot purchased this house in 2004

Why Suzann Pilot chose Olympic Peninsula

We had a vision for over 30 years of a family compound where we could live and share a beautiful natural environment with our son and daughter. We traveled the Pacific Rim, New Zealand and Canada in search of a place. When we found this place 9 years ago it felt like we had found our place.

The Olympic Peninsula provides remarkable natural beauty of almost every sort. We climb mountains and get into areas with pristine glaciers and lakes and see bear and goats and deer, and a huge variety of birds. We love to find waterfalls that few people have found and explore the rainforest mysteries summer and winter. Our children surf the waves as we explore the beaches which have unusual pinnacles and formations, and we collect driftwood and bask on the white sand. We take our family picnicking on the beautiful clear rivers where they often catch Steelhead or Salmon. Skiing and snowboarding and several winter sports are a big attraction. And always, we make sure visitors get into the exceptional Olympic National Park.

What makes this house unique

We take great pride in the home we offer to you with meticulous detail. Our son designed his Compass Rose House and we all built it together. Some refer to it as 'elegant camping' since you feel like you are almost out of doors with the openess the home has to all the surroundings. You have all the luxuries for truly comfortable living; excellent beds and linen and great cooking facilities--even the best of organic local herbs.

Our specialty in life has been to enjoy and appreciate nature and to help others have that passion too. And that is witnessed in our lovely property and the beautiful homes we have blended with the natural environment. For those who want privacy, we provide it. For those who want a serene and restorative Northwest experience, we provide that. Our homes are surrounded by meadows and a pond filled with fish, with majestic trees lining the edges and wildflowers. We have tried to make nature available and enjoyable out of every window and from every deck. Our hot tubs are outside so you can view the stars. You can see the Olympic Mountains in all their array from nearly every window. We want to touch people, to leave a lasting memory of enjoyment and rejuvenation, to have an infectious experience that compels them to want to pass on the importance of our natural resources to everyone.

Cabin was lovely, well-stocked and well-maintained. Our visit was completely serene and relaxing. I would absolutely recommend this home, and we will definitely be staying here again in the future.

So relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We came to this beautiful little secluded cabin after a few days of Glamping in the rain out in Forks. While we had fun with the whole camping thing it was so nice to check in to this beautiful little cabin. We had a bunch of adventuring planned but we liked it so much here that the next day we decided to go to town and buy some food so we could just relax at the cabin and on the property all day. I just loved staying here. My hubby likes to sit around and relax inside while I like to read and photograph things outside. It was so wonderful that we could both have what we wanted at the same place. I loved that the Kitchen had everything that I needed to make a meal as far as utensils and it really just felt like home. We even joked that we could move there and be happy for life.

I definitely recommend this place and the only thing I would change is that I would stay longer next time.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

If I were to design my dream cabin, in my dream location, it would be the Compass Rose! We so appreciated the love and craftsmanship that went into building this special place. This area is a hiker's paradise and we could have explored for weeks and never been bored. Thank you, Suzann, for your home-made cookies, your hospitality, and for sharing this special place with our family. Julia

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Compass Rose House. We enjoyed sitting in the hot tub, watching for deer, fishing for blue gill and bass, taking daily hikes in the Olympic National Park, and ending each night with s'mores around the fir pit. We had a lovely stay here and would happily return again.

Very clean cabin in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this cabin as part of a week-long trip to the Olympic Peninsula. It was a great choice! Suzann was very prompt in communicating with us on the booking and made sure we had all the info we needed for a great stay. The cabin itself is in excellent shape -- very clean and with all the amenities you need for a relaxing getaway. We cooked several meals in the kitchen and it had everything you could need. We'd highly recommend this to others.
