Hoodsport Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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 cozy and charming, remodeled 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 Hood Canal

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!!

Fantastic Place, just a few things to know ahead of time...

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. I especially appreciated the kind and efficient communication with the owner! We liked the location a lot because it isn't too far from Seattle and it is right on the beach. It is also close to Lake Cushman activities and Hoodsport (grocery story and ICE CREAM parlors). The cabin is definitely rustic, but clean with all the modern things you need like a bathroom, shower with good water pressure, running water, tv with dvd only... :) My absolute favorite thing about this property was the deck with a big round picnic table on it. The view was great and it was so nice to sit out there in the morning and read with my coffee and later in the day we played cards and could even eat around the table, which fits 6 adults nicely (we had 5 adults + 2 little kids around it).

What I think is important to know is that since you need to stay off the neighbor's property, the beach access you do have is steep, so was difficult to impossible for our older family members to navigate.

Another thing to note is that none of the bedrooms have doors on them. We made it work and everything else was so great that this wasn't a major problem, but we were surprised at first and I think it is good to know what to expect. You can still change clothes in the bathroom or in privacy if no one walks in the room.

Lastly, there aren't curtains on the bedroom windows, except for one in the master, but it is sheer. As an adult, this wouldn't be a problem for going to sleep (it gets dark around 9pm during the summer), but it made for a bit of a challenge to get our little ones to sleep (no door + lots of light).

Don't get me wrong, this place is so great, which is why I give it 5 stars, and we will be back, but I think it's good to know ahead of time about some of the quirks so that you are totally pleased with your stay!

Thank you Cynthia for a great time!

Very Cozy!

We enjoyed our Thankgiving holiday in this cozy cabin. It was perfect to wake up to chilly foggy mornings and light a fire. We had a great time!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

For people expecting a modern hotel style cabin, you will be disappointed. The cabin was exactly what I hoped for. We sadly timed our stay to the biggest storm of the year. Lost power for a few hours so we got the fire nice and hot and watched the storm. The winter price pays for the view alone. My only complaint, I wish the heat had been a little warmer when we arrived. Only because I love house plants and they were cold and sad when we got there, couple days of heat perked them up 😀 I am going back soon.
