Overview

Olympic Peninsula Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6) Pool & hot tub, lawn & natural meadows.

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-convection oven, and all the amenities for good cooking and eating, including staples and spices.

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.

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 20 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.

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.

About Suzann Pilot

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

Why Suzann Pilot chose Olympic Peninsula

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Fabulous, peaceful location couldn't have been better!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our five-night stay at the log cabin, and didn't want to leave. It was even more beautiful than pictured. The setting is so pristine: perfect little log cabin set off from its neighbors, beautiful flowering pots and flower beds, immaculately maintained. The property looks over the pool and hot tub, with lush, soft green grass that my kids loved walking on barefoot (and doing cartwheels on, and laying on). The view of the mountains was simply beautiful. We didn't spend as much time at the pond and gazebo as we thought we would, but they were very nice additions to the property. They thought of everything, including having virtually every possible size of flip flop laid out for our use on the deck, and provided skewers, kindling, matches and wood set aside in a waterproof outdoor storage box for us to make s'mores over the fire pit (which we did more than once).

Inside the cabin, it couldn't have been better. We loved lounging in the main living area: the couch and rocking chair were really comfortable, and the room homey. The stone fireplace is beautiful. I loved the fact that Suzann had so completely outfitted the kitchen with every possible spice and cooking utensil you could want. I have stayed at a LOT of properties over the years, and this was the most generous in terms of providing spices, condiments and even coffee beans, laundry detergent and fabric softener for our use.

We didn't need for much at all, but Martin was quick to help us resolve the one tiny issue that arose. All-in-all, we had a wonderful experience and are looking forward to our next visit. Suzann & Martin are delightful, helpful hosts. We highly recommend!

Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just returned from a trip to the Olympics and had a marvelous time. Suzann and Martin's log cabin was a great base of operations for our daily hikes and also a lovely and very comfortable place to relax. We could not have been happier.

Perfect balance of relaxation and adventure

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about our 4 night stay here! This cabin is perfect for both a peaceful and/or adventurous vacation! The cabin itself was extremely well-kept, and the backyard was absolutely beautiful! We spent our evenings watching the cotton candy sunsets over the hot tub and listening to the peaceful hum of nature surrounding the pond. We spent our days sea kayaking, exploring the coastal tide pools, and hiking steep mountain trails. The cabin was exactly what we wanted to come home to after these fun but exhausting day trips. Our family would definitely recommend this to cabin anyone and everyone!!!

Perfect little getaway and exactly what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Suzann & Martin are the sweetest people and very attentive owners. Place was spotless upon arrival and everything was easy to operate with the instructions provided. Firewood stocked for a cozy, crackling fire. Gorgeous views and open space to explore. Highly recommend the Log Cabin, and can't wait to visit Compass Rose house next. Thank you for sharing your wonderful place and being so easy to work with! Til next time... The Tenuta Family

Amazing Romantic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is spacious, clean, well appointed and a truly amazing retreat from the city. The owners were very nice and accommodating, providing for us a perfect romantic retreat. From relaxing in the hot tub to reading in the quiet to watching a little tv, we found everything we wanted and nothing we didn't. We definitely plan to return soon! Finally, the kitchen was such a nice thing to have - we follow a fairly strict diet and the ability to cook for ourselves in the large, well-appointed kitchen was a real benefit. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone.

Fantastic Cabin, great view

  • 5 of 5

Grateful for the opportunity to spend a few days in this relaxing, comfortable, homey and rejuvenating place. The cabin was very clean and in great condition. The wood burning stove was a treat. We had a chance to visit with one of the owner's Martin, who shared the properties history and was a pleasure to visit with. Looking forward to a return trip and we are letting other's know about this amazing place.

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.
