Enjoy your next vacation in the picturesque Olympic National Forest -- one of the most beautiful regions of the United States. This has been our family lake place for the past 40 years and is full of many fond memories from the first day we started construction in 1970. Now we want to extend the beauty and magic of our cherished place to you!

The location is perfect for the active nature lover or the quiet relaxer alike. The lake provides for all manner of water sports including boating, canoeing, water skiing, swimming and more. The beautiful Olympic forest provides numerous hiking trails of varying length and intensity for everyone from the hiking enthusiast to the family looking to spend a relaxing day together in nature.

Or if you're looking for a little more peace and quiet, enjoy sitting on the deck beneath the Evergreens while you read a book and watch the wildlife go by.

The cabin comes stocked with a wide selection of books, videos and games. There is also driveway parking for 4-6 vehicles off street, perfect for getting together a few friends. A private community park and boat launch are just a few blocks walking distance and parking passes are included. Boat launch fee is $20 per 3 days.

Wireless Internet access and DishNetwork Satellite TV channels included. Pets are allowed with some restrictions and an additional fee so that you don't have to leave Fido at home.

The Unique Benefits of this House: This is a peaceful, quiet neighborhood with security patrol and plenty of room for a large family.


Why the Owner Chose Lake Cushman: My family built this cabin to be the summer and winter get away for hiking trips and lake activities. Lake Cushman is a favorite vacation destination for many people as well as a full time home for others because of its unmatched beauty nestled in the Olympic mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Yes, thank you for letting us use your lake place. It was nice to have family time, and be in such a beautiful surrounding.

We enjoyed sharing meals at the large kitchen table, and having both the upstairs and down to play games or whatever in two groups.

The house is very well stocked with whatever anyone might need.

We hope to arrange another stay at some future time.

Plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

The house is large with plenty of beds, a big kitchen, and large dining room for family meals. There is deck space all around to enjoy the wonderful surroundings. I believe there is everything a person could need in the kitchen and the BBQ grill provided outdoor cooking options as well. It was obvious that this house was crafted with love to share great family time. Sweet touches all around. We stayed just three nights and we saw deer three separate times, one time it was a doe and her two fawn.

We enjoyed walking to the community park to see the lake up close. Little ones would enjoy the playground equipment there. It was fun walking out on the long dock to admire the clear water in the lake. So peaceful. We hope to return.

Corlen was VERY responsive and was VERY easy to work with throughout the entire process... from searching for a place, through the booking, and during our stay. Treated us like family.
