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 Port Angeles
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 14 years ago it felt like we had found our dream. 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.

Wonderful, relaxing home
We loved our stay at the Compass Rose house. It was comfortable, well stocked, and the best part - had amazing views! Owners communicated quickly and offered helpful suggestions for groceries and things to do. Accomodated our party of 4 adults and 2 young children easily. Highly recommend!
Quiet and peaceful with gorgeous views!
We loved our stay at this property. It was clean, well-maintained and such a great place to go home to after a day of hiking. The views on the patio are beautiful!
Family friendly and amazing views!
My husband and I are used to camping on our adventures but when traveling with our 8 month old for the first time, we were looking for something different. Our stay at Olympic View Cabins was a memorable first family vacation! It was the perfect home base to explore the Olympic National Park while still having all the comforts of a home - we enjoyed cooking dinner in the kitchen each night and eating outside with the amazing views. Though close to Port Angeles, the property feels remote, and we loved listening to all the animals (geese, owls, etc) at dusk. It was wonderful to have a hot tub to relax in at the end of the day and it worked perfectly. The cabin was very clean, and you can tell Suzann and Martin have a passion for their property and ensuring a wonderful stay for their guests. Thanks Suzann and Martin!
I stayed in the Compass House during my trip to the Pacific Northwest in April. The home was beautiful and the setting was serene and very well-kept. Suzanne was a very conscientious host and promptly responded to any questions or inquiries that I had. I would highly recommend Suzanne as a host and compass house as a property. I will definitely be back again!

The Compass Rose House was a perfect home base for exploring the Olympic Penninsula. Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge, the dungeoness spit and the Port Angeles/Victoria ferry terminal are all within very easy driving distance. The home has breathtaking views of the Olympics, which you can enjoy from inside the home with its large windows and spacious great room, or from its deck, hot tub or fire pit area. The owners are delightful to work with and the home is exceptionally well maintained. Put this place on your shortlist!
Heaven on earth...
At least, I’m pretty sure it was heaven as I have never seen so my stars in my whole life. The Compass Rose Cottage is phenomenal. There are no words that can do it justice. From the moment you pull up to the cutest cottage in the trees you’ve ever seen, to walking in the door and being taken back by how stunning the inside is, it feels like home. The home is VERY clean and it is obvious how much love and care the incredibly sweet owners put into it. It’s perfect in every way, as are the delightful owners! For being so close to the 101 (between Sequim and Port Angeles), it feels like you’re deep in the forest... with a grocery store ten minutes away. The frogs sang their lullabies at night and the fire pit makes for great stargazing. We cannot wait to come “home” again to the Compass Rose. You’ll be glad you did, too.
