Port Angeles House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

'Like waking from a dream'... that's a typical reaction to this romantic property. When you arrive, you will realize you have found a private little piece of heaven. Ours is a world class treasure, truly a gem in the Olympics...and it is perfectly located for exploring the Olympic National Park.

Check-in is a breeze, and each booking is given meticulous attention to detail. It's important for us to work directly with you. Please email using the link on this page to discuss your interest. We will reply promptly.

Imagine looking out through a twenty foot wall of windows, to a soaring vista of sparkling emerald water and a deep layering of Olympic valleys and peaks. Our view can't be had with properties on the crowded south shore.

Built by a cabinet maker, the house embraces you with the warmth of knotty pine. With an emphasis on intimacy, the home offers artistic touches in every corner. In the morning, lie in bed and watch wisps of fog dance through the valleys in the far cliffs. . We offer a great 'things to do list', but don't forget to schedule time to simply unwind in this peace of paradise. Soothe in the hot tub, cruise the lake in our canoe, and relax in the hammock from one of the most private and secluded settings on the lake.

Our location is perfect for exploring the grandeur of the Olympic National Park, including its pristine beaches. And, compared with most properties on the lake, getting in/out to the hwy is a relative breeze. There's so much to do and see. We know the area well, and are happy to help make your visit as memorable as possible.

After ten nine years, we have two guest books filled with praising parting thoughts. So get in touch to start your stay. You will never forget your experience here.

About Randy Adams

My wife and I have decades in the hospitality business, with an undergraduate degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management, and management experience at several well known bed and breakfasts on the California Mendocino coast. As well, we are both successful, professional artists and collectors, which shows throughout the house. As your hosts, we are serious about assuring that you will be pinching yourself during your stay. We live near by, which allows attention to your needs throughout your stay, while respecting your privacy. It is, simply, our goal to make your stay as memorable as possible.

Why Randy Adams chose Olympic Peninsula

After getting to know Lake Sutherland, we waited for this property to come on the market. It's rather special. Not just the house, but the setting. Because it's on the north shore, the view out over the lake includes the massive soaring boundary ridges of the Olympics. The house, the setting, and the view. Just plain wow.

What makes this house unique

This place can't be beat for: 1) Exploring the Olympic National Park. The proximity is fantastic. Some of the best hikes are nearby. Spectacular waterfalls and old growth virgin forests dripping with moss and ferns (Olympic National Park holds the worlds largest temperate rain forest). 2) Enjoying an incredible view right outside your window. Our 'wall of windows' looks out over a jaw-dropping vista of water and mountain scape. 3) Our attention to detail, and to bending over backwards to accommodate you. Our guest book gushes with thanks and praise. 4) All the other things to trip to Victoria BC from a ferry right out of Port Angeles, river rafting the famous Elwha, fishing off the dock, or chartering out of Neah goes on and on! We know what there is to do, and are happy to help you plan your moments.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have never seen so many stars as I have here above the emerald lake. I love the mountains which rise from the water. Attention to detail, inside and out, makes this a great house. Everything is ready to go. This is the most relaxed I have been in years and I dread returning to the rush of Seattle.

Amazing Lake House

  • 5 of 5

This little house is breathtaking. I've stayed at a lot of places, and this is a stand out favorite. Comfortable, beautiful and an unimaginably beautiful setting close to everything you're going to want to see. Just book it, trust me.

Serenity now

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is lovely, well maintained and well situated with tranquil views. I really appreciated the attention to details. The owner's correspondence, notes and literature made trip planning a breeze. And as the cook in the family, I really appreciated and took advantage of things like the olive oil and balsamic vinegar provided in the kitchen. It was so very relaxing to return to the lake house at the end of a long day to drink in the views and enjoy the silence. And the morning light on the lake and mountain as the opening scene of each day was a perfect beginning.

Terrific help and hospitality throughout the entire experience.

Just book it!!

  • 5 of 5

I am from the East Coast and an ocean person. Having said that, this is one of the most lovely homes that I have ever rented (and I have rented several over the years) in one of the most beautiful settings that I have ever visited. Clean, quiet, comfortable. This place has it all. We rented for a full week and were glad that we did! Yes, just book it!

A perfect base for exploring Olympic National Park

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect week! It's such a beautiful place to spend time relaxing away from it all. From tranquil mornings breakfasting by the lake, to refreshing afternoon plunges in the fresh water after long days exploring the beauty of the Olympic National Park.

We had a wonderful week of hiking in the park, but it was always a treat to roll down the driveway and see the house in its beautiful setting, waiting for us to enjoy the long June evenings in the tub, by the fire, and eating at the grill.

We hope we will be able to come and stay again.

Simply Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we started down the driveway, it was clear your pictures had spoken the truth. What a beautiful setting for your lovely house. We loved the personalized interior details and the many outdoor venues. You've truly maximized the property's potential! This was our kids' first time at a lakehouse and they'll be spoiled for life. Hope we can make it back as a family tradition and create many more memories here. Thank you!

Romantic, Relaxing, and Beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cabin as a graduation gift for my girlfriend. Our stay here was perfect for us! The cabin was cozy, the lake was peaceful, and the scenery was pristine.

We enjoyed every minute of the stay--we went on beautiful hikes, looked through antique shops in town, relaxed in the cabin doing puzzles and drinking hot chocolate [the day that it drizzled], and we ate fantastic food(Sabai Thai and C'est si bon).

One day, we made a picnic of grilled cheese and tomato soup then took it down to the lake and a duck with seven ducklings swam up and walked right by us on the owners dock. We also saw a bald eagle while in the canoe. We definitely plan on coming back!

The gorgeous pictures do not lie (we were here in mid/late May).

Outstanding location for exploring the Olympic National Park, Pacific beaches, Lake Crescent, and of course Lake Sutherland. There isn't another property like ours. When you arrive, and take it all in, you will realize you have found a little piece of heaven... truly magical. Perhaps the most obvious attraction is the setting on the lake, and the view across to Storm King Ridge. Besides all the activities, this is the place for unwinding, deep breathing, first honeymooning, second honeymooning, serious romancing.

Waterfront deck and dock with adirondack chairs, seating for four with patio table and umbrella, recliners, large flowering pots in many areas, grounds landscaped with subtle outdoor art. The house has expensive original art, antiques, and special touches throughout. It is common for guests to comment on the artistic way the house is decorated. Everywhere you turn, there is a special artistic touch. Great effort has gone into making the property unique in this way. In many ways, the house itself is a work of art. Add the incredible natural surroundings of the spring feed lake and soaring ridges that form the northern boundary of the Olympic National Park, and the entire property is indeed jaw dropping.
