Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Shep's Castle, your perfect vacation cabin on Hood Canal!

Enjoy the sunset while relaxing on the deck of this rustic and charming, 1930's cabin. What a perfect ending to a day of swimming, diving, fishing or just hanging around on a lovely, private cove populated by a few lovely cabins.

This two bedroom cabin is perfect for a small family or just a couple wanting to enjoy the solitude of our lovely home. The master has a queen bed and beautiful maple floors and a gorgeous cedar cathedral ceiling. The 2nd bedroom has a double bed and there is a foldout futon in the living room. It is an open floor plan, perfect for a romantic getaway or small family. My cabin is just 25 steps from the water, over a nice grassy lawn that is owned by the county. One night & Two night rates are available, please inquire :)

Dogs are allowed, there is a $20/night pet fee.

Please note: due to the size of the accomodations, Shep's Castle may not accommodate all sizes of guests. It is not tiny by any means, but a cozy little cabin. It has been brought to my attention that the approx 3' by 3' shower is too small for some of the larger guests who have stayed.

We are located just minutes away from Hoodsport, just one cove North of the famous dive spot, Octopus Hole. And just a short drive from Mason Lake and the Olympic National Park.

About Cynthia Reid

I love to hike, fish, swim and play near the water. Having grown up in a small town, living in the city can be quite a challenge for me. Spending time at the cabin is a great way for me to relax and unwind with my daughter and my two little pups.

Cynthia Reid purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Cynthia Reid chose Hoodsport

We purchased our vacation home in 1999 and have loved every minute we have spent there. It is one of the rare canal homes that is located off the main highway so it is quiet and peaceful. Now that our daughter is a teenager, we are finding it hard to spend as much time as we'd like there. So we are taking this opportunity to share the beauty and charm of our little cabin with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Shep's Castle is a rare find on the canal. Located off Highway 101, it's a peaceful and quiet setting to relax, unwind, walk the dogs or play like crazy while crabbing, shrimping, fishing, swimming, etc. This place has it ALL!!

Great location on the water, amenities were thoughtful.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was the perfect spot to come back to after a day of hiking and wandering thru the small towns on the canal. We all appreciated the games and movies, a great way to unplug. The view was beautiful with the sunrise, sunset, and even the moonlight. Thank you!

Sweet spot and the best sunrises ever

  • 4 of 5

Cynthia thought of everything as she set up this cabin. Cozy, and comfortable. It is an true beach cabin- half old/ half new construction, don't expect mint condition on the older and smaller bedroom. But the new bedroom is beautiful. Kitchen is well supplied.

Great hiking not far from the cabin by Lake Cushman (check out Mt Ellinor). Or stay in and play games and watch the ever changing view. Not much for walks close in as it's mostly private property up and down that stretch of 101.

I've rented many spots on VRBO and HomeAway, many as single times. This is that blend I love of welcoming you without pretention- simply relaxing. I will definitely be back

Thanksgiving timeframe so didn't get to enjoy the property like you could other times of the year. Saw small sea lions and other beautiful wildlife. Great coffee house in hoodsport. With rainy weather would have been nice to have WiFi or cable TV. Neither available

Cute but...

  • 3 of 5

I agree with a previous reviewer. This cabin is very rustic, as in plants/vines growing up into the house from below, rustic. I rented this for a get away for my boyfriends birthday and he was not happy. The main reason for the unhappiness is that despite having to pay a cleaning fee, when you get to the cabin you are left with instructions to fully clean the entire cabin, including sweep and vacuuming or you risk losing your deposit. We spent his entire birthday morning cleaning. Really upsetting.

Owner's Response: I am working very closely with the cleaning crew and visiting the property myself this weekend to remedy this. Please note: when visiting any property if it is not clean up to your standards please let the owner know immediately so they can remedy the situation. Leaving a bad review without giving the owner a chance to make it right seems truly unfair. We are not always in the same area and appreciate SO much when our guests let us know that they need our help. We like to keep our guests happy but there is no way to do this without you letting us know the situation. Cynthia
