Nestled at the end of the road, this cozy A-frame gives you the amenities of a full-service rental while also offering you a serene and green escape just steps away from the lakefront. A true getaway - write that book, go for a paddle, or just relax.

The space

Our fully updated, charming A-frame cabin is a perfect place to unplug, relax, and unwind. Between the deer who stop by for berry-bush breakfast, and birdsongs in the various deciduous trees to kayaking up the mountain rivers and fishing just feet from the back deck, this cozy spot is a place where you can truly get away.

Tucked away, but not remote, it is 90 miles from both Seattle and Portland in Mossyrock, Washington - a small lake town in a historic lumber region of the state.

Built in 1950 and recently remodeled, you can relax in the rustic space with the amenities of a 5-star hotel. The cabin offers a full kitchen, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, a laundry space and a living area with a huge fireplace to help you get cozy. With a Bose surround sound system and a huge projection screen for over 300 DVDs, and shelves upon shelves of books, the cabin also provides an indoor retreat. Open the huge sliding doors and you have access to over 1,000 sq ft of deck space for outdoor cookouts, lawn chair sun-bathing and reading, or hot tub dipping under the stars of a clear night sky.

We also have an additional bunkhouse that has a full bedroom and bathroom just steps away from the main house. This can be rented for an additional fee or if more than 4 people are staying at the cabin. Please inquire for additional details.

Main Cabin - Kitchen, Living, Bathroom and 2 Bedrooms
Bunkhouse (ask for additional pricing) - 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom

A short distance from both Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier, the area boasts various walks, hikes and activities for the outdoorsy. For activities closer to ‘home’, we are happy to provide two kayaks and paddles should you chose to walk the 100 yards to the lake entrance and explore the area on the water. We encourage you to head out on the country roads or into town to grab a burger, pick some famous local blueberries, or check out the well-known tulip farm.

All amenities are for the use of our guests. The kitchen is equipped with dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, coffee maker, coffee and sugar and other kitchen essentials. There is a large, new washer/dryer combo unit in the utility area as well as detergent and fabric softener. We also stock the bathroom with shower essentials and toiletries should need anything. Along with regular shower towels we also provide additional towels in case you want to take a dip in the hot tub (which you should!) For entertainment we are happy to provide oodles of books, CDs, and movies along with board games, cards, and puzzles as alternative fun.

Come and enjoy the cabin as your own. Get away from it all, pen that book, write that song, be inspired by the beauty of the landscape out of the A-frame windows. Or just relax, breathe the air, and enjoy being here.

Guest access

Guests will have the cabin as if it were their own. We will provide you an entry code to the door and once you’re there you’re in your own retreat. We are happy to provide as much contact and suggestions as desired, but understand that you’re coming here to disconnect, so are happy to leave you be. We will be on call for any questions, or if any special need arises.

The roads to the cabin are all paved and plowed (in case you come for some snow-covered cabin action). We have ample space in the driveway for vehicles, trailers and boats.

As you may notice in the photos, there are two structures to the cabin - the main cabin (with 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living, laundry and a bathroom) as well as a bunk-house (an extra bedroom and bathroom). Please note that we rent the property out as one rental, so you will not be ‘sharing’ the property with any additional guests when you come.

A lovely cabin in a very secluded place. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is it. The cabin is very clean and the kitchen well equipped. A lovely space to relax or kayak on the nearby lake, or just take it easy. We had a lovely stay.

We had a great time at the cabin. Super clean and well taken care of. Even the hot tub was really clean without being heavily full of chemicals. Appreciated the collection of music (Rusted Root AND Poison? Thanks!) and watched a movie. Although the lot is surrounded by other properties, we never saw anyone around and the only noise we ever heard was people having fun on the lake. Enjoyed a bald eagle fishing around us one day on the lake and watched a deer snack on blackberries in the backyard one evening. Just super pleasant time.

Good house, nice hosts, not an especially good value for the money. In hot weather, the house gets very warm. It's also adjacent to a private campground with several RVs and campers (who were quiet and courteous but you don't feel like you're secluded). The walk to the lakefront from the house leads to a boat launch, there's not a great area to swim or hang out. Overall this place is nice, but we had high expectations given the price point / 4.5 star rating and wouldn't recommend this to friends at the rate we paid ($469 for two nights, main cabin + bunkhouse).

Great place to unwind. Fun to pop in some cds and a movie after a long day of hiking at Mt. Rainier!

First off, Amanda and Joseba's communication was incredible. I didn't have a single question throughout the rental process because they were so informative, very quick to respond and very thorough in their communication. Secondly, the cabin itself is amazing! We rented both the main and the sleeper cabin for a weekend with 6 friends and this property was absolutely perfect for it. We're big movie fans and I'm here to say yes - the projector/screen IS as cool as it looks. Over the weekend, we took the kayak down to the water, BBQed and hung out on the deck in the sun. It was very peaceful, we only saw a handful of people the entire weekend and they were fishing down on the lake. The furniture is comfortable (Warning: if you sit on the couch you may be inclined to take a nap), the kitchen has a good variety of cookware/utensils which is always a plus when cooking for 6, and the bathrooms had all the "Oh no, I forgot to bring X!" things you could need. Very wonderful experience here and will certainly be back again soon.

Communicative hosts, beautiful location, super clean, cozy, and nicely stocked kitchen. Our only complaint is that some of the perks mentioned in the listing at the time we booked weren't very usable (kayaks) or available at all (bikes) when we arrived, which was a bummer. Amanda was very apologetic, and overall our stay was great.

The cabin was perfect. The hot tub was amazing after a long day of walking around Olympia. Tons of movies to choose from, and the sound was amazing. Wished we could have stayed longer to check out the area more!

Amanda & Joseba User ProfileAmanda & Joseba is a superhost.

We are a happy couple who now call the Pacific Northwest home.

Amanda was born in the USA and lived all over the country before moving to the Basque Country to teach English where she met Joseba. He was born in a small fishing village on the coast of the Basque Country, has travelled all over the world and lived in Scotland before calling Portland home.

Now dedicated to music, writing, being outdoors and traveling, we are happy to open our cabin to those looking for their own special getaway. When at the cabin you will find pieces of us scattered throughout - puzzles of gorgeous landscapes and classic outdoor literature - that's Amanda. Scores of CDs, DVDs and that guitar in the corner - that's Joseba. And all those kitschy coffee mugs - that's a perfect representation of both of us.

We try and live by this motto: 'One day your life will flash before your eyes; make sure that it's worth watching.'

We speak English, Euskera, Spanish and some French and we do our best to make you feel welcome in your own language :)
