Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6) Pool & hot tub, lawn & natural meadows.

You won't find anything better if you want a Pacific Northwest atmosphere. You'll love this rustic yet tastefully modern cabin with its commanding views of the Olympic Mountains, a natural 1/2 acre pond, lush lupine meadows, a seasonal swimming pool and a year round hot tub. This Log Cabin is the quintessential symbol of the Northwest.

Watch as the Bald Eagles dive for trout in the pond, or when the Blue Herons lurk for Blue Gills. Fish from the sturdy log dock, meander though the Lupine fields over to the orchard, walk or bike the trails and quiet road to the Olympic National Forest.

Inside this charming log cabin you will find a gorgeous rock fireplace where you can curl up with a good book on the cozy couch-lounge. The kitchen has a full gas stove and oven, microwave and all the amenities for good cooking and eating, including staples and spices and many food amenities.

The downstairs bedroom has a queen, foam-pillow-top bed, tastefully amended with fine linens and quilts and an adjacent bathroom with shower.

In the upstairs loft there is a bedroom with a queen, foam-pillow-top bed and one single bed. There is an additional plush foam mattress on the floor that is fully set up with linens and quilt. There is a toilet and vanity/sink.

NEW FOR 2017. EN SUITE WITH A VIEW. Large room with excellent king size bed, desk, wifi, a single bed and a great large bathroom with shower. Adjacent to the Log Cabin, just steps from the deck. Additional charge of $80 per night.

Enjoy the sunny deck with a table, chairs and barbecue that overlooks Lupine Pond and a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains in the National Park.

In the summer the large picnic table by the pool is an excellent place to enjoy meals and take in the extensive views.

The Log Cabin is one of three separate rental cabins on over 25 private acres. These secluded rentals are a haven for exploring one of the most diverse environments this continent has to offer--the Olympic Peninsula. (See our other VRBO listings.) The pool and hot tub are exclusively for the use of the Log Cabin. We, the owners, live on the property next to the Log Cabin. Privacy is so rare these days so we respect your dedicated yard, pool and outdoor space and do maintenance while you are away as much as possible, yet we are easily available for any questions or ways to enhance your stay-giving you the most personal service possible, if you like.

Only 10 minutes away are Sequim and Port Angeles, the world's longest sand spit, the ferry to Victoria, B.C., Canada and the Olympic National Park, where the road to Hurricane Ridge takes you to spectacular views of active glaciers in the Olympic Mountains.

Within 20 minutes you can venture into the moss covered rain forest, enjoy a pristine glacier carved lake, hike hundreds of miles of wilderness trails with crystal clear rivers and majestic waterfalls, be awed by the sandy rugged beaches, and soak in natural hot springs.

Whether you are a nature lover who likes to kayak, surf, fish, spot birds, watch whales, bike or hike trails, or someone who is in search of a perfect quiet natural setting, you will find your heart's desire.

The owners are easily available for questions, suggestions and anything you want but they leave you completely on your own unless you need something.

About Suzann Pilot

Suzann and Martin are the owners and full-time managers of Olympic View Cabins. We had a vision for over 30 years of a family compound where we could live and share a beautiful natural environment with our son and daughter. We traveled to many places; the Pacific Rim, New Zealand and Canada in search of a special place. When we found 25 acres with a lovely pond and a truly Northwest Log Cabin 10 years ago on the Olympic Peninsula, it felt really right.

We lived in the Log Cabin while we renovated the property and structures. Our son designed his Compass Rose House and we all built it together. Friends helped us build our Pond Cottage. Our son and daughter got jobs in other parts of the country so we decided to help pay for our property by renting out our homes.

Suzann Pilot purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Suzann Pilot chose Olympic Peninsula

The Olympic Peninsula provides us remarkable natural scenery of almost every sort. We climb mountains, thrill at pristine glaciers and lakes in Olympic National Park and find bear, goats, deer and a variety of birds. We love to find waterfalls that few people have found and explore the rainforest mysteries summer and winter. Our children surf the waves as we explore the beaches with unusual pinnacles and formations, and we collect driftwood and bask on the white sand. We take our family picnicing on the beautiful clear rivers where they can catch Steelhead or Salmon. We watch the whales as they migrate, we marvel at the living glaciers. Every season of the year there is something to be inspired by and enjoy.

What makes this cabin unique

Our specialty in life has been to enjoy and appreciate nature and to help others have that passion too. And that is witnessed in our lovely property and the beautiful homes we have blended with the natural environment. For those who want privacy, we provide it. For those who want a serene and restorative Northwest experience, we provide that. Our homes are surrounded by meadows and a pond filled with fish, with majestic trees lining the edges and wildflowers. We have tried to make nature available and enjoyable out of every window and from every deck. Our hot tubs are outside so you can view the stars. You can see the Olympic Mountains in all their array from nearly every window. We want to touch people, to leave a lasting memory of enjoyment and rejuvenation, to have an infectious experience that compels them to want to pass on the importance of our natural resources to everyone.

Enjoyed the property with private pool and kids enjoyed the pond to fish in. The house was lovely with all the comforts and very clean. The mountain view was beautiful. Owners were very helpful.

We loved to stay in this beautiful cottage where Suzann and Martin did a great job. Thank you for a warm welcome and a great stay, we will never forget it. We will come back when we come to Washington.

Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was so beautiful and fun. We have two young boys and they loved to sleep in the loft and be able to stand and look over the railing. The cabin had everything we needed from bathroom to kitchen. The weather did not always cooperate with us being a little on the cool side but that did not stop the boys. They played in the pool and warmed up in the hot tub.

Great Little Cabin Near Olympic N.P.

  • 5 of 5

This little log cabin has so much going for it. It is perfectly located for accessing the northern regions of Olympic National Park and the towns of Port Angeles (including the ferry terminal) and charming Sequim, and yet the house is a peaceful retreat situated away from traffic on a quiet tract of land with incredible views of the mountains and the spectacular sunsets. In addition, your hosts make great efforts to add beauty to the surroundings with a green lawn and planters on the deck and porch overflowing with beautiful summer annuals. (We were there in mid-July.)

The house itself was immaculate when we arrived and stocked with helpful amenities, such as coffee and tea; an array of spices, oils and vinegars for cooking; and condiments in the refrigerator. In addition, there is earth-friendly bar soap, liquid soap and laundry detergent. The beds are comfortable, as is the living room furniture. The kitchen is well equipped.

It was great to come home after a long day of hiking and flop on the comfy couch, enjoy a drink on the back deck watching the sunset, or soak our tired muscles in the hot tub. (We didn't swim in the pool as the temperature never got above 68 degrees during our stay, but it was nice to know the pool was available if it had gotten hot enough.)

Your hosts, Suzann and Martin, live on the premises, so they are easily available if you have any questions or concerns. They are, however, extremely considerate of your privacy and will not intrude on your vacation in any way whatsoever. You will barely know that they are even there.

We loved our stay at this dear log cabin and hope to return again one day soon.

Met all of our expectations! Great view, clean, close to ONP!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Beautiful location. Enjoyed coming back to the cabin after venturing out during the day. The spa was great as well. Very comfortable and the location was good to get to all the sights we were interested in. Love Washington! You have to hike Hurricane Hill. Amazing views! Ruby Beach was spectacular as well. We will definitely be visiting again.

The best place to stay for your Olympic NP Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Bottom line - just book this cabin, you won't regret it.

I can't say enough great things about our stay here. The hosts Suzann and her husband were so nice, helpful, and efficient. The cabin is gorgeous and super well maintained. The kitchen is way better stocked with pots, pans, and utensils than my own. The beds are comfortable and with several options. One and 1/2 baths was super convenient. The grounds were wonderful - when we were there mid-late June the lupine and daisies were in bloom and there was still snow on the mountains. The hot tub was very pleasant after a day of hiking.

Practical stuff - there is a Walmart Superstore about 5 miles away, and a Safeway grocery store a little bit farther. You have to drive by it on your way in and out of the park and Port Angeles, so very convenient for picking up groceries on the way home.

The WiFi was fast and easy to connect. Cable TV and a DVD player is provided.

The cabin is not in the most central location, but it is a perfect mix of convenience and being out in the country. If you stayed at a cabin closer to Lake Crescent you might be closer to the park but would still have to drive into Port Angeles for groceries. The drive to Lake Crescent area is about 30 minutes, but so gorgeous you hardly notice the time. It's about 2- 2.5 hours to Ruby Beach (highly recommend) and 2 hours to Sol Duc Rainforest (another must visit!). By the way, eat in Forks before going to Sol Duc because there is no food past Forks until the Sol Duc Hot Springs resort area and that park restaurant is limited and very expensive.

The ferry day trip to Victoria and the walk in the Gardens there was well worth it. Also highly recommend the Port Angeles Whale Watching trip.

We had a wonderful time and highly recommend the Olympic View Cabins to anyone visiting the Washington peninsula!

Easy access to Olympic National Park, worlds longest sand spit, rain forest, hot springs, whale watching, ferry to Victoria, B.C. Canada, Indian reservations, tide pools, gorgeous picturesque beaches, museums and all the amenities of the Olympic Peninsula. A Multiplex Cinema is 4 miles away.

We personally like to go to Lake Crescent and Marymere Falls for showing our friends a sample of the rain forest and a wonderful glacier carved lake. A visit to Hurricane Ridge is a must, even if all you want to do is park and be awed by the spectacular mountain panorama. If you want to hike from there you will find even more wonders to see and experience.
