Peaceful, serene, quiet, relaxing. We are located on 15 acres just west of the Elwha River, with 5 acres of natural forest and trails. Salt Creek and a beautiful pond are just 30 feet from your front door. Our pond has trout (catch & release), a picnic area and fire pit, and a play jungle gym for kids.
With its own private entrance, the 1,100 sq ft suite has: two bedrooms with queen size beds, a spacious living room with fireplace, 55" TV and dvd player (no cable) and kitchen.
Blacktail deer walk the forest trails, hence the name, Blacktail Trail. You can watch for bald eagles, blue heron, ducks and geese which visit our pond. Also you can watch for other wild life that find Salt Creek to be a sanctuary, including native cut-throat trout.
At times salmon spawn up Salt Creek in Nov. and Dec. which is amazing to watch.
Catch and Release fishing is permitted at our pond with certain stipulations. Fly fishing is preferred. Tim will explain the rules, rod and reel can be supplied.
Catch and Keep can also be arranged with Tim, before fishing, if you would like fresh trout for dinner.
Our location has easy access to: the ferry to Victoria, Canada, Marymere Falls, Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge (Olympic Mountain Range), Olympic Game Farm, Sol Duc Hot Springs, the Hoh Rain Forest, beaches and tide pools, salt and freshwater fishing, kayaking, surfing, climbing, many hiking/biking trails including The Discovery Trail; all that the Olympic Peninsula has to offer.
During the winter, it is easy access to ski (Hurricane Ridge), hunt, and all of the above.
In cooler weather, cozy up to the fireplace (wood included) and read, play cards or do a puzzle.
