About Laurie Turner

I have been teaching Kindergarten in Forks for 19 years. The families and community are remarkable. I would love to share this amazing community with others. Once you have experienced this way of life it is easy to understand why someone would use Forks as the setting for a series of novels/movies. My husband and I raised a son in Forks and attribute his success to the lifestyle he was afforded here.

Laurie Turner purchased this house in 2011

Why Laurie Turner chose Olympic Peninsula

We bought 2 lots a few years ago and decided to put a new house on them this year. My husband and I lived in Forks for about 15 years and 3 years ago we sold our home and moved to Port Angeles for his career. I have been commuting to Forks to keep my career as a teacher here. I just couldn't leave my students, their families and my co-workers. While the commute is a beautiful one the time in the winter can be exhausting. My husband and I decided we needed a place for me to stay in the winter on occasion. So, we have a fully furnished new home that I stay in when it is not in use by visitors. It really is my home away from home too!

What makes this house unique

The peace and relaxed lifestyle that Forks offers is unique. I can walk on nearby ocean beaches, drive thru the rainforest, walk on nature trails or just enjoy the mountain views. The hot springs are also a special treat for unwinding in. The convenient location of my house allows me to walk to all major necessities. I can grab a cup of coffee and walk to work or the park. The Mexican restaurant and Jt Sweet Stuffs is right across the street from my backyard. So, if I don't feel like cooking in my wonderful little kitchen I can grab a bite to take out or dine in without having to drive my car.

Very comfy house

  • 4 of 5

3 bedrooms and tons of comfortable space. Nice big kitchen and dining area. Our family of 5 was really able to spread out and relax. All the necessary utensils and appliances were available to cook. The exterior is very bare but we spent most of our waking hours in the Olympic National park so we didn't care.

Couple of cons -

1) It's 12 miles to the turnoff of the Hoh rainforest and another 18 miles to get to ranger station. So if you are staying here as base to Hoh rainforest, a good estimate will be 45 mins to get there. This location is closer to Rialto, First, Second and Third beaches. Definitely check out Second beach in the low tide, awesome tide pools.

2) The thermostat seems to be not working. We tried to lower the heat and even turn off the heat but nothing happened. We had to open the windows to sleep. I do admit we didn't call anyone, we were coming back so late that it was too late to call and kept forgetting to make the call in the morning.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend this home as a base in Forks to explore the ONP.

June 18, 2017 – June 21, 2017

We were in Seattle for a family wedding and since we were traveling from the east coast and meeting up with family from San Diego we decided to make it a trip worth remembering, so we stayed the week in the beautiful Olympic region. We departed Seattle on a Sunday early afternoon and made our way to Forks. On the way, we stopped at Hurricane Ridge prior to getting to the house, a must in my opinion since you drive right past the access road and it will take less than an hour to reach some spectacular views and good short trails.

We arrived at the house and immediately felt at home. Although not a large home the 3 bedrooms were well appointed and very comfortable, we just used 2 of the 3 and did not utilize the bunk bed room (no kids). After a long day of travel and taking in what the drive had to offer it was great to have such comfort and convenience while staying in Forks. We found a local bar-restaurant for a cold one and meal. Great friendly folks all around. We had no real issues with the house. There were just a couple of very minor things that I brought to the homeowners as a matter of notification when we did an arrival inspection. So small it is embarrassing to mention. But the response was a thank you for letting them know and issues will be taken care of expeditiously. One thing, a lamp or two in the living room would be great instead of having to use the overhead lighting.

This is a perfect location to day trip from while trying to see, smell, taste, touch and hear all of the Olympic Parks beauty. Thank You for your hospitality.

Loved it!

This house worked perfectly for my husband and I and our 3 kids. It was comfortable, cute, and clean. We spent 3 days there as we visited beautiful Olympic NP. The town is quaint and quiet, too. Thank you!

Wonderful, cozy home.

  • 5 of 5

We love to visit the Olympic Peninsula and this home was perfect. Clean and comfortable and in the middle of all there is to see and do along the coast. It was a great place to unwind after scouring the beach for treasures. This is a place we would recommend to all who are visiting the Forks area. Thank You for providing a great home.
