Our upstairs apartment sleeps four. There is a one and a half story set of steps to climb to the apartment. We are on Olympic Hot Springs Rd on the Elwha River, at the entrance to the Olympic National Park. While the river is not visible from our place, you can hear it when it is high.

Olympic Hot Springs is at the end of the road.

You can hear the Elwha River when the windows are open. The Roosevelt Elk silently show up to fill the pastures with 40+ head of elk every few weeks. The elk are wild and come and go as they please. This is not a ranch where we raise elk, just where they sometimes live. We back up to the Olympic National Forest and are walking distance to the entrance to the Olympic National Park and Madison Falls.
We are dog friendly, having one ourselves.
Our horses are available for your love and attention, but sorry, not to ride.
