Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

We go through life, compiling memories. Here is one of them.

When our guests arrive, they gush. They've found a gem, a private little piece of heaven. Instantly, they will never forget this place.

Imagine looking out through these windows, to this view...from bed! Imagine the warmth of knotty pine, antique furniture, and artistic touches in every corner. And that's just the house. Now imagine grounds that sweep with gardened privacy. A shore that sweeps with your own deck, dock...and canoe. And that's just the grounds. Now imagine hosts who take this seriously, who work hard to make your visit special.

We are Madi and Randy Adams. We offer a great 'things to do list', but don't forget to schedule time to simply unwind in this peace of paradise. Soothe in the hot tub, cruise the lake in our canoe, and relax in the hammock from one of the most private and secluded settings on the lake.

In summary: Our location is perfect for exploring the Park (and all the other awesome things around here). Checking in is easy as pie (no need to pick up a key). Access to the highway is quick and easy (most houses on the lake are a chore) The home and grounds are simply smashing (lots of art and landscaping). The north-shore views will knock your socks off (not the case from the other shores). You get our red-letter attention (most places are cattle operations). You get privacy (most places on the lake are sandwiched in). You get rock solid memories (and isn't that what really matters!).

Sincerely, Madi and Randy Adams

About Randy Adams

My wife and I have decades in the hospitality business, with an undergraduate degree in Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management, and management experience at several well known bed and breakfasts on the California Mendocino coast. As well, we are both successful, professional artists and collectors, which shows throughout the house. As your hosts, we are serious about assuring that you will be pinching yourself during your stay. We live near by, which allows attention to your needs throughout your stay, while respecting your privacy. It is, simply, our goal to help make your stay as memorable as possible.

Randy Adams purchased this house in 2004

Why Randy Adams chose Olympic Peninsula

After getting to know Lake Sutherland, we waited for this property to come on the market. It's rather special. Not just the house, but the setting. Because it's on the north shore, the view out over the lake includes the massive soaring boundary ridges of the Olympics. The house, the setting, and the view. Just plain wow.

What makes this house unique

This place can't be beat for: 1) Exploring the Olympic National Park. The proximity is fantastic. Some of the best hikes are nearby. Spectacular waterfalls and old growth virgin forests dripping with moss and ferns (Olympic National Park holds the worlds largest temperate rain forest). 2) Enjoying an incredible view right outside your window. Our 'wall of windows' looks out over a jaw-dropping vista of water and mountain scape. 3) Our attention to detail, and to bending over backwards to accommodate you. Our guest book gushes with thanks and praise. 4) All the other things to do...day trip to Victoria BC from a ferry right out of Port Angeles, river rafting the famous Elwha, fishing off the dock, or chartering out of Neah Bay...it goes on and on! We know what there is to do, and are happy to help you plan your moments.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have never seen so many stars as I have here above the emerald lake. I love the mountains which rise from the water. Attention to detail, inside and out, makes this a great house. Everything is ready to go. This is the most relaxed I have been in years and I dread returning to the rush of Seattle.

The house has expensive original art, antiques, and special touches throughout. It is common for guests to comment on the artistic way the house is decorated. Everywhere you turn, there is a special artistic touch. Great effort has gone into making the property unique in this way. In many ways, the house itself is a work of art. Add the incredible natural surroundings of the spring feed lake and soaring ridges that form the northern boundary of the Olympic National Park, and the entire property is indeed jaw dropping.

A magical lakeside retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at Madi and Randy's house during our honeymoon. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nothing beats waking up to the views of Lake Sutherland and the surrounding mountains. Randy was very accommodating, and the house was well-equipped. I'm sure we'll be back -- next time we're bringing friends!

Serene and comfortable... a true getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful home to stay in while exploring the Olympic Peninsula. Each day we woke up to a beautiful view. And each night we soaked in the hot tub, ensuring a peaceful night's sleep. The lake was so uncrowded and the house was so private, we felt like we were in our own private paradise. We found everything we needed at the house...cooked great food and enjoyed dinner with a view. The bed was beyond comfortable and the decor was homey and artistic. A great home base for exploring the beauty of the area.

Amazing views. Beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully maintained home nestled in the trees with drop-dead gorgeous views of the lake. Immaculate, well-equipped. A few steps down brings you to a dock at the water's edge. A nature-lover's paradise with massive moss-covered trees, native shrubs and wildflowers, rhododendron, happy song birds, eagles, and leaping fish. Looking forward to a return trip!

What a lakeside house should be

  • 5 of 5

We spent our anniversary weekend at Randy's house and the house and location met or exceeded our every expectation. Privacy, comfort, everything we needed and then more. Everywhere you turn there are little details that let you know that your hosts care about your experience - little notes explaining what to do, nice soaps and supplies and firewood ready to light inside and outside. There are little vignettes of experiences here that can occupy time between adventures in the surrounding areas. Have a fire outside by the lake in the evening - lounge in the hot tub with a view that never gets old and constantly changes with the sun and weather - start a fire in the inside wood stove and enjoy the views - wake up slowly and linger as you view the lake through a magnificent cathedral wall of glass. Sit down on the dock and just enjoy the silence and the sound of the waterfalls all the way across the lake can be faintly heard - tranquil and peaceful - we felt rejuvenated being here.

TIPS - Be sure to pick up some groceries on the way in and enjoy some meals at the cabin - a good bottle of red wine was made for sharing this experience with the setting sun casting shadows on the mountains across the lake and your favorite food on the grill.

Thank you Randy for your hospitality, we hope to be back one day.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Coming from the dusty drought impacted central coast of California my wife and I desperately needed a rain-vacation so we rented this beautiful cabin. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised. The private lakefront location exceeded our expectations. We reveled in the warmth of the well maintained outdoor jacuzzi tub in the cool drizzling evenings after hiking the national park trails.

The owners were very helpful and attentive yet respectful of our privacy during our stay. They recommend an all wheel drive car or SUV for the driveway so you can park next to the cabin. We found the gravel driveway very well maintained with just a short steep jog as you drop down to the cabin. You can also opt for a different parking option if you do don't want to get an AWD.

The cabin was immaculate, cozy, safe, private and quiet. The A-frame windows have gorgeous views of the lake from the living room, kitchen, and the large ensuite loft bedroom. We appreciated the artful touches, comfortable bedding and linens. The bathrooms have been remodeled with a shower upstairs and claw tub downstairs. We enjoy cooking our own meals and appreciated the full well organized kitchen. We did not use the canoe but it looked like it would be fun during the warmer months. We felt so fortunate to have discovered this gem of a property and would not hesitate to book another getaway here.

Thank you Randy and Mattie for a great stay.

Well appointed and equipped stunning lake house.

  • 5 of 5

Autumn leaves and fine rain wispy clouds and rippling waters all made our stay at Randy and Madis lakeside house an exceptional experience. So many beautiful places to visit or just sit and relax - let the beauty come to you - thank you

Outstanding location for exploring the Olympic National Park, Pacific beaches, Lake Crescent, and of course Lake Sutherland. There isn't another property like ours. When you arrive, and take it all in, you will realize you have found a little piece of heaven... truly magical. Perhaps the most obvious attraction is the setting on the lake, and the view across to Storm King Ridge. Besides all the activities, this is the place for unwinding, deep breathing, first honeymooning, second honeymooning, serious romancing.
