Located at the Base of the Olympic National Forrest, this rental sits on 7 beautiful acres and on top of the bank of the crystal-clear Big Quilcene River, only a short walk away (less than a .25 miles) from the house. This is the perfect place to come after a long days hike in the Olympic Nation Forrest. You can enjoy the sounds of the water rushing and the birds singing as you soak your weary feet in the refreshing glacier run0ff.
For those who love salmon. The late summer brings hoards of fish up the Big Quil. You can feel free to try your hand at fishing or just watch as the fish run and the fishermen come out of the woodworks. Don't forget your fishing license if that is your plan.
You couldn't ask for a better location, we are 1 mile south of Quilcene, where you will get the small town feel. Old timers dining at the local café, chatting about the way things used to be, politics and upright gossiping. People are friendly to a fault and will go out of their way to point out local attractions when you visit our quaint little town. We are also 25 miles from the eclectic town of Port Townsend and less than 10 miles away from more than a dozen hiking trails in the Olympic National Forrest.
The house has a rustic and comfortable feel. With knotty pine walls, a propane fireplace, games of yesteryear, an upright piano, a couple of guitars and vaulted ceilings you feel like you could be in a little mini lodge.
There is a fire pit in the back yard that is overlooked by the majestic Mount Walker. Come and embrace the invigorating sensation staying at this true, Cabin in the woods. .
This home sleeps four in the provided beds. The home also includes free High Speed WI-FI Internet Access, a TV with DVD player, Propane Stove, and a barbecue grill.
Enjoy cooking out on the deck with the BBQ while sitting and enjoying the amazing view of Mount Walker or gathered around the fire pit up close in the back yard.
You can also enjoy a camp fire down by the river with complete solitude and seclusion from anything but nature.
This property may be shared with campers staying down in the lower area of the property.
One last thing, the house does sit close to Highway 101, so you can expect to hear road traffic from time to time.
