You won't find anything better if you want a Pacific Northwest atmosphere. You'll love this rustic yet tastefully modern cabin with its commanding views of the Olympic Mountains, a natural 1/2 acre pond, lush lupine meadows, a seasonal swimming pool and a year round hot tub. This Log Cabin is the quintessential symbol of the Northwest.
Watch as the Bald Eagles dive for trout in the pond, or when the Blue Herons lurk for Blue Gills. Fish from the sturdy log dock, meander though the Lupine fields over to the orchard, walk or bike the trails and quiet road to the Olympic National Forest.
Inside this charming log cabin you will find a gorgeous rock fireplace where you can curl up with a good book on the cozy couch-lounge. The kitchen has a full gas stove and oven, microwave and all the amenities for good cooking and eating, including staples and spices and many food amenities.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen, foam-pillow-top bed, tastefully amended with fine linens and quilts and an adjacent bathroom with shower.
In the upstairs loft there is a bedroom with a queen, foam-pillow-top bed and one single bed. There is an additional plush foam mattress on the floor that is fully set up with linens and quilt. There is a toilet and vanity/sink.
NEW FOR 2017. EN SUITE WITH A VIEW. Large room with excellent king size bed, desk, wifi, a single bed and a great large bathroom with shower. Adjacent to the Log Cabin, just steps from the deck. Additional charge of $80 per night.
Enjoy the sunny deck with a table, chairs and barbecue that overlooks Lupine Pond and a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains in the National Park.
In the summer the large picnic table by the pool is an excellent place to enjoy meals and take in the extensive views.
The Log Cabin is one of three separate rental cabins on over 25 private acres. These secluded rentals are a haven for exploring one of the most diverse environments this continent has to offer--the Olympic Peninsula. (See our other VRBO listings.) The pool and hot tub are exclusively for the use of the Log Cabin. We, the owners, live on the property next to the Log Cabin. Privacy is so rare these days so we respect your dedicated yard, pool and outdoor space and do maintenance while you are away as much as possible, yet we are easily available for any questions or ways to enhance your stay-giving you the most personal service possible, if you like.
Only 10 minutes away are Sequim and Port Angeles, the world's longest sand spit, the ferry to Victoria, B.C., Canada and the Olympic National Park, where the road to Hurricane Ridge takes you to spectacular views of active glaciers in the Olympic Mountains.
Within 20 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 trails, or someone who is in search of a perfect quiet natural setting, you will find your heart's desire.
The owners are easily available for questions, suggestions and anything you want but they leave you completely on your own unless you need something.

Suzann and Martin are the owners and full-time managers of Olympic View Cabins. 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 to many places; the Pacific Rim, New Zealand and Canada in search of a special place. When we found 25 acres with a lovely pond and a truly Northwest Log Cabin 10 years ago on the Olympic Peninsula, it felt really right.
We lived in the Log Cabin while we renovated the property and structures. Our son designed his Compass Rose House and we all built it together. Friends helped us build our Pond Cottage. Our son and daughter got jobs in other parts of the country so we decided to help pay for our property by renting out our homes.
Suzann Pilot purchased this cabin in 2004
The Olympic Peninsula provides us remarkable natural scenery of almost every sort. We climb mountains, thrill at pristine glaciers and lakes in Olympic National Park and find bear, goats, deer and a 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 with unusual pinnacles and formations, and we collect driftwood and bask on the white sand. We take our family picnicing on the beautiful clear rivers where they can catch Steelhead or Salmon. We watch the whales as they migrate, we marvel at the living glaciers. Every season of the year there is something to be inspired by and enjoy.
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.
Couldn't have been better. Highly recommended.
I echo all the 5 star reviews on this site. The cabin was very well stocked with blankets, towels, kitchen appliances and spices! If you like fresh ground coffee, bring your own beans, there's a coffee grinder! There's even coffee beans in the freezer, but you'll have to thaw out for a few hours before using them or else you can drive a few miles to a Starbucks or coffee stand. The weather was wet while I was visiting, but don't let that stop you, take a drive to Crescent Lake and hike to Marymere falls. The falls were that much more spectacular with the the on and off rain. Such as scenic surrounding altogether!
Alan & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely place....very cozy, warm fireplace, well-appointed kitchen, comfy bed...all dwarfed by the beautiful view of mountains and sky from the kitchen window. Suzann & Martin were great hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Hope we can return someday to explore more of the Olympic peninsula
Well-kept cabin, rural feel but convenient to Pt Angeles, Pt Townsend, Hurricane Ridge and other Olympic Nat'l Park activities. Pleasant hosts (good cookies!). Clean and comfortable, with a nice outdoor hot tub/pool and mountain view. The loft area provides a nice variety of space, but don't expect acoustical privacy--it's basically one big room. We'd suggest a little oil on some door hinges, and better lighting in the main room, for reading and games, etc. around the table. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
We enjoyed our stay do much at the cabin we will definitely book it again should we return to the area.
We were two couples doing a road trip and spent two nights at the Log Cabin. The Cabin is a really great getaway, clean, spacious, well stocked and on top of that there is a pool to soak in after a long day hiking!
Our communication with Suzann beforehand was excellent, with prompt replies, great driving instructions and suggestions. We had the pleasure of meeting Suzann during our stay and she was the perfect host.
The cabin and property are beautifully maintained and it was a pleasure to "come home" to it each night.
We are looking forward to visiting again in the future and would absolutely recommend the cabin.
Easy access to Olympic National Park, worlds longest sand spit, rain forest, hot springs, whale watching, ferry to Victoria, B.C. Canada, Indian reservations, tide pools, gorgeous picturesque beaches, museums and all the amenities of the Olympic Peninsula. A Multiplex Cinema is 4 miles away.
We personally like to go to Lake Crescent and Marymere Falls for showing our friends a sample of the rain forest and a wonderful glacier carved lake. A visit to Hurricane Ridge is a must, even if all you want to do is park and be awed by the spectacular mountain panorama. If you want to hike from there you will find even more wonders to see and experience.
