Hood Canal Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Idyllic location! Private beach! No bank waterfront!

*Welcome to the Antler's Cottage*

**Your ticket to waterfront heaven!**

This is it! Right off of golden pond! This cozy, lodge theme cabin is located in the most desirable development and on one of the finest waterfront properties Lake Cushman has to offer, it is truly in an idyllic setting.

This squeaky clean hide-a-way is dripping with charm and has all the modern amenities but still retains the flavor of that bygone era. The well stocked kitchen has just been upgraded with new appliances and other features. The living room has a double pull out sofa and cozy fireplace for that special evening. There are lake and mountain views from the kitchen, living room and front deck which includes a propane barbecue and table for those savory sunset dinners!

There are three bedrooms. The master has a king size bed; the two smaller bedrooms each have a twin.

It gets better! The water is mere steps away. This is premium, no bank waterfront. Your own PRIVATE beach, dock and firepit on water's edge. This is a gravel, gradual beach for great swimming and wading. The float is great for mooring your watercraft or just sunbathing. Hop in the canoe for a shoreline excursion to the local park or waterfall; you can even launch a small boat from this property. The views from the dock are majestic. Mountains, forests and crystal clear water. In the mountain night sky the moon and stars dance overhead!

The recreation opportunites at your doorstep are amazing. Olympic National Park, Staircase, Mt. Rose and Mt. Ellinor. Hiking, fishing, golfing, boating.

Your host is the author of 'The Early Settlement of Lake Cushman'. The book is there for you to read, along with dozens of rare, circa 1900 framed historic photographs showcasing the grand era of the lake adorning the cabin walls and beckoning you back to a simpler time. Time seems to stand still here, so tranquil and serene. Experience beautiful Lake Cushman, both past and present. Step out of the rat race and step back in time.

-- We cherish our cabin -- You will too!! -- --New for fall 2014 - ductless heat pump and a/c unit installed for your comfort and convenience--

Lake Cushman Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation. The cabin was so cozy and offered all amenities needed for a comfortable 6 day stay. The cabin has a lot of interesting historical information in it about Lake Cushman which was a rare treat. The lake access was awesome! Provided great swimming for the kids (and adults :~D). Near by hikes, waterfalls and HUGE rock cliff jump was great! I highly recommend you stay in this cabin but book quickly cause the time goes fast!

Stayed for an extended weekend on the Lake. Plenty of hikes in the area for us to explore the beauty of the Olympic Mountains. The cabin is perfect and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. We will be returning again, it is great regardless of the time of year.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing weekend. Cabin was clean and well appointed. Our group was 3 adults and 2 children. Plenty of room and things to do. The dock and beach are very nice. Enjoyed s'mores by the fire on the beach. Took 2 trips to Staircase, highly recommend this park! No complaints, our weekend at Antler's Cottage was perfect. Will stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. Staircase is a beautiful area and it is the southeast entrance to Olympic National Park. Our cabin is in the closest division to the park. We welcome the return of the wildlife rescue team!

Quiet Lakefront

  • 5 of 5

Ridiculously scenic views from the kitchen, living room, deck, and off the dock. Misty mountain mornings and evenings out over the lake. Sign the guestbook! Also consider reading it out loud in funny voices!

Great place if you like: hiking, photography, fishing, birding, campfires.

There's a little bit of boat traffic on the lake and the neighbors are close, but we were there in peak season and it still seemed pretty quiet. The canoe needs to be rehabbed or replaced. Bring a sharp knife if you're a chef (like every rental house).

There's a new full size washer and dryer which was nice with all the outdoor recreation around. Paper flyers and printouts are the norm for the trails and parks in the area, so don't expect a professional guidebook.

Cozy and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 kids for a 5 day stay at this quaint cabin. It has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing stay. The beds are all comfortable. The lake is beautiful. It is a great chance to get away from city life and enjoy some peace and quiet. Loved our time away. Would definitely return to this cabin again.

Amazing first-time stay on Lake Cushman

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe the amazing time my family had while staying at Antler's Cottage. Not only is the location stunning (cabin on the lake, surrounded by sheer natural beauty), the cottage has everything one could possibly need for a wonderful vacation. This was our first vacation in the area and thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the fire at night, watching the stars fill the night sky. The hikes in and around the area are phenomenal! We appreciated the personal attention within the house (tips on hikes to take and things to do in the area) and all the amenities! We are planning our return trip in 2015!
