Located in the beautiful Elwha Valley, just 5 minutes drive from Spring Road and easy public access to the Elwha River, this 3 bedroom 1 full bath home has a unique history.  Built in the 1930's, in what is now the Olympic National Forest, this cabin was built as part of New Deal to provide homes for people working in the area.  In the 1970's the cabin was transported to its current location.  It is now sited on a 1 acre property bordered on the west side by an unnamed creek and is close to the newly restored Elwha River. This cozy cabin is only 5 minutes from the public access to Lake Sutherland, and only 15 minutes west of Port Angeles, Washington.

In a truly beautiful setting, this home comfortably accommodates parties of 6-8 guests.  As you enter the large cabin, you come into an open area with the dining room and kitchen to the left and the living room to the right. A stairway leads to the loft and master bedroom. At the back of the main floor are the guest bedrooms, full bathroom and the laundry room/mud room.  The first guest room has 2 twin beds.  The second guest room has a queen bed.  Upstairs, the master bedroom has a king-sized bed, a thoughtfully engineered "electronics charging station" and recently added air conditioner.  The TV has a HDMI cable available to hook up to your laptop and a DVD player.   The loft has games, a reading nook and floor space to play or accommodate a couple extra guests in sleeping bags.  Please call to arrange sleeping mats for additional guests.  Additional guest charges apply.  The loft looks down onto the living room where there is a comfortable seating area to gather by the warmth of the wood stove or enjoy the large flat screen smart TV.  There is no cable or other TV service here, so bring your own Netflix or Amazon accounts or even just sit an talk.  Limited rural internet; Hot spot (10 G/month, first come first serve).  There is also a DVD player with this TV. 

If you are looking for a home base to explore the North Olympic Peninsula, this history rich cabin on over 1 acre is the place you want to be.  In the Elwha Valley you are framed by the Olympic Mountains where there are lots of popular hikes in the valley and surrounding area.  The Olympic Hot Springs, Sol Duc Falls and Hot Springs, and Marymere Falls are close by and favorite destinations. Families with young children will love this rustic get away.  Search the creek for crawdads.  Visit Lake Sutherland for Kokanee fishing or water sports or take in the nearby Lake Crescent.  There is plenty of parking on the property if you are bringing a boat and trailer.  Don't miss the exquisite Makah Museum in Neah Bay or the Hoh Rain Forest, both in easy driving distance.  Stop by Granny's Cafe, just down the road, for a country cafe dining experience.  Be sure to leave room for pie!  Enjoy evening fires and s'mores at the fire pit, and games on the large lawn area.  Don't forget to stop at any of the local (Port Angeles) grocery stores or gas stations to get wood for the fire pit and wood stove.

Extended stay?  No problem, the cabin is equipped with a washer and dryer in the laundry/mud room.  There's plenty of room for meal prep in the kitchen with island.  There is a full sized fridge, electric stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, electric kettle and brew coffee pot.  There is a pantry for easy access to your groceries.  The dining table has leaves to seat 6 at the table.  We provide pots and pans, cooking utensils, plates, glasses, cups and utensils.  We also provide bed and bath linens, paper products, shampoo and soap, and hair dryer.  Bring you groceries, including your favorite spices, teas and coffees.  

This beautiful retreat is perfect for hikers, bicyclers, families, explorers, fishing and hunting groups.

Perfect for our family of with kids ranging between 4 and 12. The home has a beautiful view of the mountains and is surrounded by trees and a small creek runs along side the house. There are so many trails minutes away from the house. We loved it!

This is in a fantastic location with access to a lot of outdoor activities but still close to Port Angeles for services. Large front yard with a small stream and trees - we had a large group of deer spend lunch with us in the front yard. The space was clean and well equipped and we appreciated the dishwasher and full laundry space. We used the outside gas grill and front porch which worked well for nice weather days. The host provided all the information we needed. Thanks for a great stay.

This property was very cool. Stayed there with my 3 and 5 year old and the location was perfect for us. The yard was the forest! We were a 6 minute drive from Madison Falls which I highly recommend for little ones as it is an easy trail with lots to see (waterfall, river, trees, etc.). This place was also a ~15 minute drive to a great park (Erickson Park), markets, and stores. The place itself was a cabin that had a nice play loft, puzzles, and movies. We felt very comfortable in this clean and well maintained house/cabin.

My husband and I, our two young adults and their significant others, rented the West of the Elwha cabin for a family vacation. We live in Pennsylvania and Oregon, so some of came across the country to get to the Olympic National Park. We were so impressed with the park, and equally impressed with our rental. The cabin is on a beautiful property, through which a creek runs. There is a wide open yard with a fire pit (great for gathering around at night), surrounded by beautiful flowers, plants and wildlife. The house maintains the charm of the original cabin, while being refurbished to provide all the extra comforts for a family who is traveling. So peaceful and welcoming. We loved our stay! Highly recommend.

Nice place near the beautiful Lake Crescent. Requires some drive (about 1 to 1.5 hours) to Hurricane Ridge, the rain forest, and the beaches, but overall conveniently located. Clean and well-equipped. The owner responded quickly. We enjoyed our stay there.

Clean, great location as a base for exploring Olympic National Park, amazing communication from the host (more responsive via phone than messaging). The kitchen was comfortable for preparing meals, and we also made use of the grill, fireplace, and fire pit. Would definitely stay here again!

This cabin is everything you want! Skylights, a banking brook and tree swing right next to an outdoor fire pit, a wood burning stove and fully functioning kitchen inside it is heaven! Its a short drive to the various parts of ONP and Port Angeles, but is a destination in and of itself. Kid/family friendly! Wildlife viewing and more. Seriously, if I could live here I would. I will definitely be back!!

West of the Elwha is a nice property with a great woodstove and a vintage atmosphere. Kitchen is spacious, well equipped and allows for good cooking. Bedrooms are comfortable. There was a lot of snow when we were there, but the house was warm on arrival, which was great.

The house was great. There were some great locally written books on local history on the bookshelf, and it was a nostalgic experience to watch some old 90s VHS's. The house was very comfortable. The wood stove kept the place warm and was a fun change of pace. No complaints, would happy come back to spend more time in the area.
