Washington House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Private Lakefront (Main house + 2 Optional Studios=4BR) Sleeps 8-12

A secluded retreat with over 300 feet of private lakefront nestled in the Olympic National Park, on the north shore of gorgeous, pristine Lake Quinault awaits you! Located on a private cove, there are no neighbors in immediate sight; this is privacy and seclusion at it's best. Enjoy the views from this custom 2-story home from your wall of windows overlooking glorious Lake Quinault. The adjacent wetlands and creek on the property are popular nesting grounds for an array of birds and wildlife. Bald Eagles, Osprey and Herons make frequent appearances. The home features an expansive lawn leading down to the private beach and outdoor fire pit. The beach offers a gradual descent; perfect for children to wade, play and swim. Inside you will find everything you need for entertainment and relaxation. The home boasts a large double sided gas fireplace that adjoins a smaller living room to an extra large recreation / living room. Complimentary wi-fi. Snuggle up in the sun-room or on the deck and take in the tranquility that surrounds you. After a long day exploring the bountiful outdoor opportunities, relax in the rain sheltered outdoor hot tub and let the stress of the outside world melt away, or enjoy a private Jacuzzi soaking bath in the master bedroom suite upstairs.

The main house features 2 bedrooms with Queen size beds; the master suite has a bathroom with a jetted Jacuzzi tub. Additional sleeping accommodations include: a pack and play, two toddler beds, a queen size fold out sofa sleeper in the smaller living room, a queen size futon on the open loft above the stairs, comfy couches and recliners in the rec room and living room areas, and extra-soft padded carpet with dark shades/drapes in the rec room.

Upon request, this property also has a separate upstairs studio apartment above the garage in addition to the main house, which offers a queen size bed, + a child-size futon + a crib, as well as a full kitchen with counter-top bar and stools, a full bathroom, gas fireplace and 2 Lazyboy sofas with built in recliners and a TV/Satellite/DVD/VHS. There is a separate additional $125.00 + cleaning fee charge to rent the upstairs apartment unit in addition to the main house.

Upon request, there is also an additional smaller more rustic ground floor studio unit behind the garage offering a queen size bed, a bathroom with shower, equipped with electric heater, gas fireplace, TV/satellite, microwave, small fridge, exercise equipment and air hockey table. There is a separate additional $75 + cleaning fee charge to rent the downstairs studio unit in addition to the main house & upstairs apartment.

In order to rent the Upstairs Apartment, guests must also rent the Main House. In order to rent the Downstairs Studio, guests must also rent the Main House and the Upstairs Apartment.

This is truly a magical retreat where seclusion, privacy and beautiful mother nature converge to create the perfect getaway.

Guestbook comments from the owner

All of the other rental properties in Quinault share beach access and are adjacent to other homes. This lovely home is the only one that offers complete privacy and seclusion.

Excellent Location and Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the home and the surrounding grounds were. The views from the sunroom were just wonderful anytime of day. We were particularly impressed with the amount of baby gear they had in the home--two toddler beds, a pack n play, a high chair, an excersaucer, and tons of books and toys for all ages of babies (ours were 0-3). The common areas are plentiful and spacious which allowed us to spread out and have plenty of space to play, read, nap babies, and cook without being on top of each other.

The owners were friendly and very responsive. Our dogs were welcomed also, and it felt great knowing they were safe roaming outside in a secluded area. We were seven adults and four babies, so we rented the additional apartment over the garage, and we had plenty of room to spread out.

Beautiful location, but a few glitches

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful home on gorgeous, private property in an area with limited development. The views of the lake, mountains, and wildlife are spectacular - we saw otters, geese, loons, herons, rabbits, and deer; there are also many elk and beaver in the area, but we didn't see any. The main house is nice and offers several comfortable sitting areas that accomodate large groups. Sleeping areas aren't especially spacious, but the beds and futons are comfortable - beware of the sleeper sofa as most adults would have a hard time sleeping on the hide-a-bed. We also rented both additional units: the upstairs studio was fine for a private space for a family, but the downstairs studio was cramped and dark - the exercise equipment should be removed to make more space or to add a dresser or table.

Our experience with the owner was consistently positive. Cleo was responsive to our inquiries and helpful in providing informative answers to our questions prior to our arrival. She was also honest and forthright about a minor maintenance issue with one of the units so that we had no surprises when we arrived.

Despite her helpfulness, we did have a few issues during our stay. Upon arrival, the keys to one of the studio units was missing, leaving some of our group locked out for a few hours while I scrambled to make contact with Cleo, who in turn could not find someone in the vicinity who could help us. Eventually, Cleo gave me directions to find an extra key which opened the unit and was very apologetic for our inconvenience.

Other than several cobwebs in the large picture windows, the units were fairly clean. We had 14 people in our group and it would have been helpful to have a few more towels and plates/cups/glasses/silverware stocked in the kitchen; there were some extras in one of the studio units, but we didn't particularly want to drag all of those items over to the main house.

Our biggest frustration was that the oven kept tripping the breaker on the outlet in the kitchen. Even though it was fueled by gas, the oven and stovetop range shut off when the power supply was cut. We pulled the whole stove out of its slot in the counter to climb behind it to hit the outlet reset button 8-10 times, but got tired of having all to pull all of our hot pots and pans off the stove and out of the oven to move the appliance. We eventually gave up and did our cooking in one of the studios.

In all, we had a good weekend and enjoyed the beautiful setting.

never enough time...

  • 5 of 5

Excellent facility and outstanding property. 5 of us enjoyed a two night stay as the weather changed from summer to fall and the rains came in for the first rains of the season and we were treated to quite spectacular views that changed constantly our entire time there. The cove and the basically untouched lake backed by hills are about as serene as it gets. The house itself is expansive, extremely comfortable (we were quite happy to use the fireplace one evening), well appointed, and well maintained and considerably private in setting. The owners are extremely easy to work with and very pleasant people. The time to leave comes upon you much too quickly when you stay in places like this...that is why we are planning a longer stay in the not too distant future...

Soooooooo Great

  • 5 of 5

We rented the main house and upstairs apartment for 4 days. The property is beautiful. I could sit on the deck and look at the lake for hours and hours. It is very secluded and exactly what we were looking for. Hot tub was a bonus. The house was well kept and well stocked for cooking. The direct tv was not working while we were there and I was so glad because we didn't have to listen to the tv ever! It was just the peaceful sounds of nature. There was wifi available if you had to stay in touch with the real world. The sun room is a beautiful place to sit and read and look out the huge windows at the lake. We did a lot of hiking while visiting the area and the house was central to most of the areas we wanted to get to around Lake Quinault and the coast. I recommend the Salmon House restaurant across the lake. Really delicious! All in all a wonderful house and I highly recommend it.
