Beautiful mountain cabin in the Olympic Peninsula
100% loved this cabin. Mike was a great host, called us before we got there to make sure we had everything we needed. Finding and entering the cabin was simple and easy. The location is absolutely gorgeous. For two Mid-westerners, we were basically in awe the entire stay. The cabin is simple and quaint, yet does not feel crowded or cramped. My fiance and I had plenty of room. I would assume 4 adults would be the max if you're really worried about space. The view is astounding, the sunrise through the mountains is heavenly, the lake is a 30-second walk from the cabin door and at 8:30am the water was like bathwater (late August). Overall, we had everything we needed. Stove, coffee maker, silverware/cutlery, Brita water filter, small fridge and freezer shelf (don't plan on packing a weeks worth of frozen food in there though, just a forewarning). The shower provided warm water on demand (always a huge plus after hiking all day), plenty of towels, and clean (my fiance wants me to re-iterate that. It was rustic but clean, which was a big sigh of relief for her, lol). There was a TV with a DVD player in the bedroom and WiFi, if needed. Honestly, if you're out there you shouldn't be on these devices anyway, that defeats the purpose of visiting a National Park region. But hey, if it's raining, I guess that's a nice bonus. Getting to the beach areas (Rialto, La Push, Ruby) is about 90-120 minutes (Ruby might be a bit further, but not too much). Getting to the gate at Hurricane Ridge is about 60 minutes if you know the backroad road route. Traffic after the gate is always bad, so adjust about another 40 minutes to get to the top. Hoh Rain Forest is about 2 and half hours give or take. Honestly, this cabin location is perfect in respect to some of the best locations the park has to offer. Not to mention you can just hit the trailhead near the cabin which is about 7 minutes away. If you're looking for a location as a central spot for your hiking/boating/fishing adventures, look no further. Will be back without a doubt. A+++ Mike! You have an amazing cabin!
