Description

Situated on the north shore of Lake Sutherland, this property is a great "home base" for those exploring the North Olympic Peninsula, hiking the Elwah Valley or just looking to enjoy swimming, kayaking and fishing on beautiful Lake Sutherland.  Nestled in the Olympic Mountains. This old lake cabin has been recently renovated --updating the kitchen, bathroom and main living area.  The upstairs bedroom has a queen-size bed and picture windows presenting a beautiful, wide view of the lake.  Wake up in this spacious loft-like bedroom and the serenity of the lake before you.  There is a flat screen smart TV in the bedroom, with a DVD player.  You can enjoy your favorite movies by logging into your Netflix, Hulu or other online TV account, or by bringing your favorite DVD movies.  There are a few DVDs at the cabin for your selection, too.

Downstairs on the main floor, there is also a double-size sleeper sofa set up as a permanent bed, with privacy draping, to accommodate guests for sleeping.  Easy drive to Ocean Beaches and other points of interest like Salt Creek for low tide pool viewings, Makah Museum is a must see, Cape Flattery most NW point in the continental US, Ozette trail is a wonderful hike starting at Lake Ozette and to the Ocean then back up to Lake Ozette (9 miles).  Also two entries to the Olympic National Park are near by, Sol duc Hot Springs and Hoh Rain Forest. Lake Cresent is a beautiful lake with an historic lodge for dining and a fun gift shop.

The main floor living space is open-concept.  The kitchen is updated with beautiful counters and an built-in electric stove top.  There is a toaster oven and microwave, but no other baking oven.  There is a drip coffee make and tea kettle for your favorite hot beverages.  We provide dishes, pots, pans, cups, glasses, serving dishes and utensils.  Please be careful about putting anything on the shelf above the glass topped stove!

The lake side of the room is banked by windows so that you always have a view of the lake.  There is a large evergreen just to the left of the view.  It is a favorite roost of one of the resident eagles at Lake Sutherland.  The dining table sits in front of these windows for dining with a view.  There is a love seat, adjacent to the dining space, creating a wonderful place relax and enjoy a good book or just stare out onto the lake.  Please note that there are caution signs on the deck railing, please no climbing or leaning on railing.  

The trails to the house and down to the dock at the lake are  clear, but steep.  Some agility is required.  On the dock there are 3 kayaks for guest use.  Paddles and life vests are in the boat house.  The paddle boat on the right side of the dock is NOT functional.  Please don't try to use it.  Also the right side of the dock is for boat storage only ---safe, but not super stable for hanging out on.  The left side of the dock can be used for hanging out and fishing.  The dock sits right in front of a deep fishing hole. Please be advised:  All water activities are at your own risk. 

Wanting a fishing get away?  Lake Sutherland is a great place to catch Kokanee (land-locked salmon). No live bait is allowed for fishing on Lake Sutherland, so bring your power bait or "wedding bells", "cowbells" or "spoons".


Bed linens, towels, soap, shampoo and some cleaning supplies are also provided

We really enjoyed our stay. Enjoyed the platform by the water, great for a refreshing swim. Enjoyed the kayaks there ("at-your-own-risk"). I enjoyed the AC on the hot days. I enjoyed watching all the boats, jet-skis and others going about the lake having their fun. I enjoyed watching some stars at night. The house is quirky. Like the drawer that doesn't fully open because of the towel holder that was added, or the random electronic gadgets lying around that we had no clue what they were for. The sofa-bed with the DIY privacy curtain. The tiny toilet and humongous kitchen sink. The toaster oven was just enough for our needs. The internet was slow (not a WIFI issue) and often timing out connections,so you have to retry a couple times. I managed to do some work during the off- hours, but it took some patience. The water features were a bit misrepresented in the photos: the kayaks were in the boat house, with no instructions on how to properly get them out. The pedal boat was stuck on the side of the boat house and impossible to get out. The platform was in the worst state of disrepair, with parts of it a bit scary to walk on. I really hope they'll do something about all this, as it is all a great perk to have. The stairs up and down from the house were definitely nothing to take lightly. They felt like hiking indeed. Please, take all of the above as one snapshot in time. Overall, we really did enjoy it a lot and really hope to go back to this cabin someday. It was absolutely worth it.

The house is in a great location and is as advertised. The kitchen is well appointed and the views of the lake are great all day. We really enjoyed using the kayaks to paddle around and take in the scenery. We had two issues with the house: 1) The coffee maker was a small 4-cup machine. for big coffee drinkers, we found this pretty frustrating. 2) Echoing some of the earlier reviews, the dock needs TLC. there were some soft boards that don't have much life left in them at this point. Overall, i really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house ( especially if those changes are made.)

The view of this amazing spot literally takes your breath away. Simple home with stunning views, close to the Olympic National Park! We were first on the trails and back in time for lunch and a dip in the lake! We paddled around Lake Sutherland and had an outstanding time! What a great opportunity to stay somewhere so special!

We enjoyed our stay at the Hiker's Haven. It's nice little cabin and we appreciate that it was provisioned with most of the essentials in the kitchen and bath. The upstairs bed was very comfortable and we slept very well after some great days hiking around the park.

We loved the house and you cant beat that view! We played out on the water in the kayaks and spent hours reading facing the gorgeous lake. What a gem! The house was clean and one of my kids really enjoyed sleeping on the couch with the curtain that completely encases it. Its a great spot for families and wed love to come back in the future.

Incredible cabin for a retreat outside of the city and right into the beautiful Maple Grove and Olympic NP. Traveled across the country for this visit and was not disappointed in the slightest, everything works appropriately in the cabin and it is a fantastic place to spend a few days while hiking the surrounding region.

A true gem strategically located at the top of the peninsula: close to great trails and Port Angeles (Rt 101.) Cottage is neat and kitchen aptly supplied for anyone who wishes to prepare their own meals. Lake Sutherland provides a picture-perfect backdrop as well as a recreational opportunity (all equipment for kayaking is available.) Highly recommended!

We loved this cute little cabin! Great for a couple or small family. Its a bit of a hike down the stairs to the dock but we didnt mind, loved using the kayaks and fishing off the dock! I would recommend older children due to proximity to water/steep incline. Property manager was very responsive and helpful!

My boyfriend and I absolutely loved our stay over Thanksgiving weekend. It was exactly what I was looking for, a cute cottage on a lake in the mountains. Waking up to a hot cup of coffee while sitting on the sofa overlooking the water was the main thing I wanted to do, and that was a success. We took a day trip to see Port Angeles on day 1, and on day 2 we went to the Hoh Rainforest. I did want to use the kayaks available, however it was a bit too cold for my Phoenix blood to be on the water. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

This cabin was such an awesome space to rent! My friend and I were looking for a fun cabin to stay at during our trip to Olympic National Park and the cabin was perfect. There was an amazing view of the lake, which was absolutely serene to wake up to every morning and have coffee out on the deck. The cabin is a little under an 1.5 hour drive to major locations such as Ruby Beach, Forks, and Hoh Rainforest...even closer drive to Sol Duc Falls and Hurricane Ridge! If you need groceries, Safeway is only 20 mins away in Port ngeles. The only issue we had was that when we arrived, the house had not yet been cleaned from the previous guest. The company was very speedy with their response and had the issue fixed in very little time, they were an absolute pleasure to communicate with. Overall, great stay and I would 100% stay again.
