Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Welcome to Shep's Castle, your perfect vacation cabin on Hood Canal!

Enjoy the sunset while relaxing on the deck of this cozy and charming, remodeled 1930's cabin. What a perfect ending to a day of swimming, diving, fishing or just hanging around on a lovely, private cove populated by a few lovely cabins.

This two bedroom cabin is perfect for a small family or just a couple wanting to enjoy the solitude of our lovely home. The master has a queen bed and beautiful maple floors and a gorgeous cedar cathedral ceiling. The 2nd bedroom has a double bed and there is a foldout futon in the living room. It is an open floor plan, perfect for a romantic getaway or small family. My cabin is just 25 steps from the water, over a nice grassy lawn that is owned by the county. One night & Two night rates are available, please inquire :)

Dogs are allowed, there is a $20/night pet fee.

Please note: due to the size of the accomodations, Shep's Castle may not accommodate all sizes of guests. It is not tiny by any means, but a cozy little cabin. It has been brought to my attention that the approx 3' by 3' shower is too small for some of the larger guests who have stayed.

We are located just minutes away from Hoodsport, just one cove North of the famous dive spot, Octopus Hole. And just a short drive from Mason Lake and the Olympic National Park.

About Cynthia Reid

I love to hike, fish, swim and play near the water. Having grown up in a small town, living in the city can be quite a challenge for me. Spending time at the cabin is a great way for me to relax and unwind with my daughter and my two little pups.

Cynthia Reid purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Cynthia Reid chose Hood Canal

We purchased our vacation home in 1999 and have loved every minute we have spent there. It is one of the rare canal homes that is located off the main highway so it is quiet and peaceful. Now that our daughter is a teenager, we are finding it hard to spend as much time as we'd like there. So we are taking this opportunity to share the beauty and charm of our little cabin with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Shep's Castle is a rare find on the canal. Located off Highway 101, it's a peaceful and quiet setting to relax, unwind, walk the dogs or play like crazy while crabbing, shrimping, fishing, swimming, etc. This place has it ALL!!

Wonderful view and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed staying at this home very much! I found the owner very easy to reach and accommodating. The view from the front porch is amazing and the house was very comfortable. We visit hoodsport often and would stay again!

Relaxing retreat

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is really cozy and has the perfect view. It is exactly on the Hood Canal and gives you direct access to beach and all its sea life ( we only heard the seals calls at night). Nicely located, so you do not hear the road sounds, but you enjoy the beauty of the water.

Very relaxing and close to loads of gorgeous hikes! The seals made me smile every day. There is no traffic and it feels nicely secluded. The dogs Loved it! So many hummingbirds. It was a real pleasure!

Earthquake and all had wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Shep's Cabin. We love the cosines of the cabin and experiencing the water foul, seals and other wildlife. Our times there have always been a wonderful escape just being outdoors, watching dvds, reading books and eating when we feel like.

I've enjoyed speaking with Cynthia (the owner). She always been very friendly and nice!

This has become our favorite escape from reality!

We both are looking forward to our next visit!
