About The Owner

I grew up in Forks and have the great fortune of residing in such a beautiful part of the country.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why The Owner chose Olympic Peninsula

A Cozy River House I has been in our family for many decades, and is a place that is near and dear to us. It is perfectly located to see all the sites - the beaches, rainforest, lakes, waterfalls - in just a 30 minutes or less in the heart of Olympic National Park. The back deck overlooking the river is so peaceful and is the best place for an evening fire, and to catch glimpses of bald eagles and otters going about their daily riverside activities.

What makes this house unique

Cozy 1 is the perfect river cabin where you feel like you're off the grid and away from it all, but you still have all the modern conveniences you need to stay connected to the "outside world' if you need to. The deck affords spectacular views of the Sol Duc River and bald eagle fly-by's throughout the day. Eagles often provide excellent photo moments by landing on one of the property's trees! It's just the right size to accommodate families and friends. With the public boat launch and fishing access to the Sol Duc River just down the street, Cozy 1 has become a favorite for both small and large groups of fishermen too. It is perfect for family reunions, with A Cozy River House II only two houses down the street for larger groups. A Cozy River House is the perfect getaway year round - our family loves it and we know you will too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much for providing the perfect vacation get-away - you thought of everything. It was wonderful staying here. We love the hike to Cape Flattery and also hiked to 2nd Beach, with our 5 year old granddaughter.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5

My family of five (ages 9-75) enjoyed our stay very much. We come to Forks every summer, and this is by far the nicest accommodation we have found. It is also superior to most of the VRBO rentals we have used throughout the West. We will be back. Warm welcome and very personal service.(Julie did a special spider check because my granddaughter refers to one of our prior rentals as The Spider House and, indeed, no spiders were found despite the house being in the woods.) Exceptionally well stocked kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room; nice linens. Great game collection. Dining table big enough for everybody. Furnishings in good shape. Beds good. The house is centrally located for great beaches (Rialto and, our favorite, second beach) and an easy drive to Ruby Beach and the Hoh rain forest. (I should note the wifi is too slow for anything beyond checking email and Facebook, but I'm pretty sure that this is endemic to the area and beyond Julie's control. If being able to download videos or play interactive games on your phone is important, probably Forks is not for you.)

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spend a week a year at the cozy river house in pursuit of wild steelhead on the fly. What an amazing escape in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula.

The views of the Solduc River from the living area are fantastic and the home is well furnished for any travelers need.

We recommend all of Julie's properties. Her attention to deliver a great experience sets the bar.

Great cabin to book along with Cozy Riverhouse II to have 2 cabins if you need it!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting the Cozy Riverhouse I & Cozy Riverhouse II cabins both together at the same time a few times per year to take larger groups of customers at a time steelhead and salmon river fishing. The drive to and approach is beautiful. The cabin sits right on the Sol Duc River in "the zone" of fishing. Both Cozy I & 2 cabins just have one cabin between them so you can walk driveway to driveway as you are that close. Great for larger parties when you get both cabins at the same time. You can dispatch to fish 4 rivers within minutes of the cabin. The cabin is cozy and right on the Sol Duc River. Hike the Olympic National Rain Forest, walk on the ocean beaches, see the Sol Duc Hotsprings. 7 minutes to dine in Forks or see the town. The most important thing is that the owners take incredible care of you with excellent customer service. Booking on their website is a snap, quick easy emailed PDF invoice, meticulously clean and prepared cabin awaiting you. Contact from the owners to confirm your arrival time and to assist with any special needs, complete privacy during your stay, but immediate assistance if you need anything. Thoughtful owners there to provide 10+customer service. I rate both this cabin (Cozy Riverhouse I) as well as Cozy Riverhouse II which are both owned and operated by the same owner a 10+. Very pleased. You should definitely book and try this cabin to go fishing, hiking, ocean seeing, hunting, relaxing and just enjoying the beauty of the Olympic Peninsula.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The owner is great. There were no issues booking the place or finding it and the directions were superb.

The house was great. We loved the fireplace and the selection of board games and books. The welcome basket was very nice too. The sound of the river in the morning was very pleasing and the patio was a nice place to have a cup of coffee.

Spring Break Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a short getaway with our girls, and it is just as "cozy" as it looks! I was very impressed with all the amenities they provided: tons of fresh towels, extra pillows & blankets (beds & sheets were good!), a seriously well-stocked kitchen (even sharp knives and full spice rack!) with service for 10 or more (including every type of glass you could ever need), a closet full of games, a whole DVD library, TV's in every bedroom (husband happy about that!), Wi-Fi (husband happy about that, too!), an iPod stereo, a guest info book with anything you might need/want to know. There was even a huge basket of treats to welcome us, which our kids attacked daily, and a big bowl of York Peppermint patties my husband couldn't resist. We made a fire the minute we arrived & there's a whole shed full of wood (attached to the house) so we kept it going the entire weekend. There is a garage to use, a brand new very large gas grill, a laundry room with full size washer & dryer, ironing board & iron. It rained a lot, so we didn’t get to take advantage of sitting out on the deck. The house is just steps above the Sol Duc River. Wouldn’t normally list so many details here, but they provided more than was expected, which was so appreciated by me! It is obvious they anticipated everything that a guest might want or need. House looks just like it does in the photos and it was impeccably spotless.

Julie was a delight to talk to, she emailed all the information we’d need including a very detailed map, and when asked, she even sent more information about things to do en route. Anyone who chooses this house will be very happy. It’s cute, clean & you will have everything you need!

A Perfect Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for 4 days of fishing on the Soleduck, Hoh, and Bogachiel rivers. I could not have imagined a better house or location. The house it spacious and warm and right on the Soleduck river - about 15 feet away. Lots of comfortable beds, and a very well outfitted kitchen. There is a nice deck and bbq. It is also only 1/4 mile from the Maxfield boat ramp, prefect for fishing and rafting. What really set this place apart is the attention to details - the fishing books and posters, the kids toys, the decorations - really made it homey and welcoming without being too kitchy. The owners and their housekeeper were available and attentive to our questions. Really doesn't get a whole lot better than this. We will definitely be back!
