Relax at Our Olympic Peninsula Cabins
Stunning views, beachfront access, rolling green lawns, peace, quiet, and privacy, all things you’ll find in abundance at our Olympic Peninsula cabins in Sequim, WA. This part of the Northwest is one of the most beautiful places in the world: sparkling waters of the Salish Sea, snow-capped craggy mountains of the Olympics, and lush, temperate rain forests. All of this natural beauty is right before your eyes at our six cozy and comfortable Olympic Peninsula cabins.
You’ll quickly see why locals have nicknamed our quaint town “Sunny Sequim.” Our Olympic Peninsula cabins are the perfect location to soak up that extra vitamin D. A fun fact: this beautiful coastal town is one of the driest in all of Western Washington, with a precipitation average that’s more on par with Los Angeles, CA than Seattle (which is only two hours away). These dry days are all due to our location within the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains—shielding us from the excess rainfall.
Our Olympic Peninsula cabins are the perfect place for a romantic retreat, girls’ or guys’ weekend, family reunion (book all six cottages!), or even a relaxing solo getaway. No matter the reason, you’ll love strolling along the Dungeness Spit (the longest sand spit in North America), kayaking in the calm waters of the Dungeness Bay, hiking through the emerald green Olympic Discovery Trail, and relaxing in a hot tub with a view.

Stunning Views at our Olympic Peninsula Cabins
The geography of Sequim is unique and creates some of the best views in all of Washington State. As a guest at our Olympic Peninsula cabins, a quintessential Northwest landscape surrounds you. Perched on a bluff overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca—which lies within the Salish Sea and connects to the Pacific Ocean—you’ll awake each morning of your stay to these sweeping water vistas. To your back lie the Olympic Mountains, home to the spectacular Olympic National Forest, an outdoor lover’s dream destination.
One of the most amazing natural elements right nearby our Olympic Peninsula cabins is the Dungeness Spit. This world wonder is the longest sandpit in the nation, jutting five miles out into the Strait. This land is all part of the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, where more than 250 species of bird and 41 species of land mammals reside. The crowning beacon at the end of the spit is the New Dungeness Lighthouse, accessed by boat or on foot along the spit at low tide.
When you stay at our Olympic Peninsula cabins, be sure to rent our kayaks and paddleboards to survey the area around the Dungeness Spit and view the New Dungeness Lighthouse from the water. You’ll see a lot of wildlife, including seals and their pups, and if you’re lucky maybe even experience a whale sighing. For those who prefer exploring on dry land, we also have a selection of bicycles (standard and electric) available—one of the best ways to tour the nearby attractions.

The fragrant herb grows in abundance here and you’ll find a ton of local, family-owned farms offering u-pick, lavender-scented products, and plenty of Instagram-worthy photo ops.
