4 Bedroom, 2 Bath Ranch Style Cedar Rambler On 5.2 Acres In The Quinault Valley
About Kellie Daniels
The Daniels Family - Corey and Kellie Daniels and our four sons, Cameron (not shown in this picture away at college) Cole, Carson and Casey. In 2002, Corey and I (both avid outdoor enthusiasts) sold our Sammamish home, quit our jobs and moved to Lake Quinault to escape the 'rat race' and live in God's country where we wanted to raise our boys. Yes, our Seattle friends thought we were crazy (actually they thought we had lost our minds!) until they came to visit and didn't want to leave! Corey and the boys and I have spent the last several years living the dream until recently when Corey's job forced a move. Determined to keep our little piece of heaven so that we could return as often as possible, we decided that our best option was to share our home with others wanting the same thing we did - to escape the city lights to a place where the stars shine and the elk bugle. It was an easy decision and we only hope you and yours will enjoy it as much as we do.
Kellie Daniels purchased this House in 1995
Why Kellie Daniels chose Quinault
The River's Edge home is Lake Quinault's #1 Get-Away Retreat. Our property is home to several resident elk herds in the Quinault Valley. The elk are probably our favorite feature and we never get tired of seeing them. Herds as large as 50 roam the Quinault Valley throughout the year. There is nothing better than sitting on our deck with a cup of coffee watching the young elk calves play in our field on a warm summer morning. Our property is the largest rental property in the Lake Quinault area and we're pleased to be able to share it. Four bedrooms, two baths, two family rooms, a state of the art kitchen, large laundry room, office and the cozy rock fireplace with wood stove insert make this a year-around retreat. Each season brings a new experience and we are happy to share. *World Class Steelhead Sport Fishery out our back door! *Bald Eagle Viewing like you have ever seen before. *Resident Roosevelt Elk herds and Wildlife Photography are a daily adventure. *Hiking and Nature Trails into the Olympic National Park, Colonel Bob Wilderness and USFS are within walking distance from our home. *Lake Quinault is home to the Southern Entrance of the Olympic National Park and our property is on the famous 31 mile Quinault loop drive where you will enjoy the Quinault Rain Forest and all its wonders. *Our home is only 2.5 miles from the Historic Lake Quinault Lodge and 1.5 miles from the World's Largest Spruce Tree located at the Rain Forest Resort and Salmon House Restaurant. *Writer's Retreat. Our home serves as the ultimate writer's retreat. Book an extended stay and enjoy the tranquil setting as you dig deep and write your next novel. Our home is equipped with WI-FI. Yes, our home is the perfect get-away for anyone with a dream and story to tell. Our home is far from the city lights, interstate, traffic jams and 3 hour commute. Join us where the air is clean, stars shine and elk bugle!
What makes this House unique
Lake Quinault's #1 Get-Away Retreat! Enjoy steelhead fishing on the Upper Quinault right out our back door from December to March. The Upper Quinault River is known for its World Class sport fishery. Our favorite guides live in the area and we would be honored to set you up with a great trip. Weekly fishing trips are also available and our home serves as a great 'home base' if you seek to fish the other popular Olympic Peninsula Rivers including the Hoh, Clearwater, Sol Duc or Lower Quinault River. Fly fishing is becoming ever so popular and our property is just a short 5 minute walk to the rivers edge. Lake Quinault is home to the Roosevelt Elk. You can view the resident elk herds year-around. April and May kick off the spring season when the grass grows and the elk emerge in the many fields on the South Shore Road including our property where the elk slumber just off the rivers edge. Grab your camera and join us for an incredible opportunity to hike, explore and view the Quinault Rain Forest and abundant wildlife in our area. May kicks off our peak season. Four bedroom, 2 bath, two family rooms, large laundry room and mud room, office and large cedar deck with built in propane and Stainless BBQ make this Lake Quinault's #1 Get-Away retreat.

Spacious and peaceful
Nice spacious house great for family gatherings. Grill and fire pit are a plus. The kitchen does have lots of appliances, just missing a tea kettle. I recommend you bring your own coffee (we had 2 spoons of Folgers), oil (only spray oil available), and clorox wipes for the bathroom (the bathrooms were sparkling clean but I can see someone staying 3+ days would need some basic supplies). Also bring liquid hand soap and toiletries (the website does not mention those items and indeed very little is provided). Slow internet was not an issue, just enjoyed the backyard and the park.
Beautiful place to stay
My wife and I hosted a family reunion this weekend, and it was lovely! The house itself had plenty of room and amenities to make everybody comfortable, and the back yard was a great place for the kids and dogs to run around. Very peaceful with a lovely forest view. The only hiccup was that VRBO's check-in instructions were out of date, and I missed that detail in the owner's welcome message. She had sent the door code, but I hadn't seen it, and it was tough to get a signal to contact her (but that's only because it is exactly the kind of remote getaway spot that we were after). Overall very happy with the experience, as were all of our guests!
Thank you Emanuel! So glad you enjoyed your stay. Super thankful you were able to get a hold of me about the door code. Sorry again that you missed that information in my welcome email. You were the first guests to use the new door code! The information is now updated for future guests and I am sorry about that. We would love to have you stay again and appreciate the kind comments. Thank you again for booking with us! Visit again!
Big house, well appointed kitchen
The house was plenty big for the four of us. Lots of cooking implements, which was great for us. Quiet location, plenty of hiking, don't expect cell service. You can live without it.
A wonderful retreat from the daily grind!
What a lovely place! We enjoyed every minute at the River’s Edge. It was a great base camp for a winter fishing trip. When not fishing, we enjoyed sitting by the fire (for which we had ample firewood), playing games, watching movies and stargazing. The home is well-appointed, clean and spacious. It is a serene location. (The only thing we were lacking was a hairdryer - but the fan on the wood stove worked out just fine in a pinch!) Kellie was super responsive, pleasant, and helpful in every way. We are hoping to visit yearly!
Perfect for a getaway
We had a nice retreat with friends for the weekend when we needed to get out of the city. This served its purpose perfectly for the occasion.
Beautiful relaxing stay - wish I had more days!
We (a family of 7 - parents/aunts/uncles, cousins, and one 3 year old girl) stayed here early August for one night during our trip around the Olympic peninsula, and wished we spent more time in the area.
It was a pleasant drive to the house, and easy to find and recognize from the picture! The house has a lot of personality, and truly feels like a home.
The rooms were beautifully laid out, and the kitchen was truly well stocked. There were lots of towels and toiletries available, and the water pressure was good. The only trouble we had was when the three year old insisted on which one was her room and refused to switch.
The wifi is painfully slow, but I was able to get on and surf the web/Facetime my sister at 3 in the morning (I was still jet-lagged). However, nobody was able to get on at other times, and none of us had working cell service (we had Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellular customers in our family).
The directions for the wifi/check out were very clear, and easy to find.
This was my first time using VRBO, and while I was anxious about the experience, it turned out really well. When I return for another trip of the Pacific Northwest, if this place is available, I will definitely stay here again!
