Have I mentioned how much I love living in the PNW? There are so many glorious places to escape to. Last week I was lucky enough to stay in a friend-of-a-friends cabin on Lake Quinault in the Olympic Forest.
My ears always perk up when I hear mention of a cabin, as a cabin would be my dream location to settle down in, so when I overheard that a cabin was available I may have been a bit insistent that we check it out. I imagined a rickety little shed that would be in somewhat proximity to the lake.
I was completely wrong. After a scenic drive up Hwy 101, was the most delightful surprise pulling into the driveway that positioned us directly in front of Lake Quinault. The cabin was beyond adorable from the outside, but when I ventured inside my heart melted to the ground with overwhelming perfection in every corner I looked in. Enough jibber jabber, here are some pictures of my amazing three night stay… there are a lot.
The inside of the house couldn’t have been decorated better even if I tried, the owner paid attention to detail and was able to incorporate a cozy cabin feel with a new element of whimsical woodland creatures, almost as if Snow White lived there.
See what I mean? I was seriously in love with every nook and cranny.
The lake was beautiful and surrounded by the Olympic Peninsula, supposedly an area of the world that get’s the most rainfall but we didn’t see a drop!
I was lucky to enjoy the lake as well as go on multiple hikes around the area. I love “worn” parts of maps, the spot every touches that withers away an otherwise freshly printed map. We did a good portion of these, and they were relatively easy and relaxing as the were primarily flat.
There were two spots we frequented that were about a five min walk, which was perfect.
It was such a great trip that it was hard to pack up and head back home.
THANK YOU so much to Carol and Ian for sharing this cabin.
Until the next adventure…
