Northwest Art and stylish comfort nestled among the trees!
This incredible vacation home offers a comfortable, stylish retreat from the stresses of day-to-day life, surrounded by woodlands but replete with amazing art and modern amenities. Close to Port Angeles and other nearby attractions, this home is a perfect place for families to enjoy an Olympic Peninsula vacation they'll never forget.
The Sleeping Raven Woodland Retreat is just under four miles from the charming downtown of Port Angeles. Surrounded by green, tranquil woods, this one-level property is easily accessible by wheelchair, and includes enough parking to accommodate cars and larger recreational vehicles and trailers alike. The outdoor shed even has room for a boat, so guests with a boat have a good place to keep it nice and dry before taking it out to the Port Angeles waters.
This home boasts a refreshing retro-modern architectural design inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. The vaulted ceilings create a sense of spaciousness that lets the home breathe, and plentiful large windows let in natural light and beautiful views of the surrounding nature. Gorgeous wood, tile, and brickwork scattered throughout the house, combined with many tasteful pieces of Northwest-inspired art, give this home a relaxing atmosphere that still holds a strong sense of sleekness and style.
Between the plush sofa, large sectional, comfy armchair, and luxurious leather recliner, the roomy living room offers more than enough space and options for relaxation for the whole family. Step outside the glass doors to enjoy the amazing views of the wrap-around deck, then come back inside and warm up by the brick-work fireplace in the center of the room. Thanks to complimentary WiFi, you can even use the Smart TV to enjoy services like Netflix and music streaming for those quiet nights in.
The breakfast nook by the fireplace and table by the woodstove are both great places for four guests eat, and each offer great window views and interesting art.
With a roomy open-kitchen layout featuring ample wraparound countertops and gorgeous wooden cabinetry stocked with all the tools you'll need, whipping up an amazing meal for your family will be a breeze. In addition to all your basic appliances, the Sleeping Raven Woodland Retreat also includes a dishwasher, so cleaning up afterwards will be quick and easy.
Up to six guests can enjoy a restful night in this home's three bedrooms. The master suite has a luxurious four-poster king-size bed and walk-in closet that parents will love, while another bedroom offers a generous queen-size bed. The third bedroom's two twin-size beds ensure kids can enjoy a good night's sleep too, and with two full bathrooms and a private washer/dryer, everyone will be able to embark on the day's adventures feeling fresh and clean.
Port Angeles is just a short drive away from the Sleeping Raven Woodland Lodge, making trips to watch ships in the marina, enjoy shops and restaurants, and appreciate several downtown sculptures very convenient. Families in search of more structured entertainment have no shortage of things to do. You can take a walking Heritage Tour of the city, visit museums and galleries like the Feiro Marine Life Center or Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, or enjoy natural attractions like whale-watching trips with the Port Angeles Whale Watch Company.
Your vacation home is conveniently located near several exciting day trip destinations, which is great if your family is in more of an adventuring mood. The sands and surf of Rialto Beach and the nearby Mora Campgrounds are a 70-mile drive along the scenic Olympia highway, and the beautiful Madison Falls are just 13 miles to the east. Urban explorers will be thrilled to learn that the exciting Canadian town of Victoria, BC is just a drive to Port Angeles and ferry ride away, opening up a whole new world of restaurants, cafes, and shops for you to explore.
Whether you're itching to explore the natural wonders of the Olympic Peninsula, eager to take in the many sights and sounds of Port Angeles, or just want a cozy getaway with your family, this stylish vacation home has the accessibility, atmosphere, and amenities you need.

The house was very comfortable and the setting was very beautiful and quiet. We stayed with our daughter and her husband and 2 little ones. Plenty of room for 6 and could actually sleep 8. The master bathroom is wonderful with the heated floor and rain shower... had a little trouble figuring out how to turn on the hand held but finally got it! More than adequate supply of towels and kitchen equipment.
The only negative I have is that the lawn was not mowed and the kids were scared of the bees visiting the dandelions so they would not play outside.
I would say though that it was a great place and we had a very good stay.
Clean, organized house, with a great fireplace in center room. Awesome master bath and bedrooms. Well laid out, lots of space and great living space. Totally recommend!
Lovely home and surroundings, thoughtfully prepared for guests to relax and enjoy
Lovely architecture and peaceful green surrounding
Great and very secluded location. Easy access to local tourist spots. Home was equipped with everything we needed for our stay.
Calm. Quiet. Beautiful. Peaceful. The Sleeping Raven Retreat was a perfect gateway to exploring the Olympic Peninsula. Location was perfect, the property was amazing and we will 100% be booking again when we visit.
Lovely place - very peaceful!
I can only second (and 3rd and 4th) what other reviewers have already stated. Sleeping Raven is peaceful, quiet, and only minutes to town. The L-Shaped layout places the bedrooms far away from the kitchen area so there is no issue with some parties sleeping and others working/cooking/hanging out.
The master bath layout is so fantastic that I took pictures and hope to do the same with my full time home someday.
The home is clean. Internet access is solid. Beds are comfy. Can't wait to go back with my husband.
This house is indeed a gem in the Olympic National Park. The location of the house is close to everything while being private. We enjoyed very much in this vacation house and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to stay here for the visit to Olympic National Park.
Excellent home and location. We will definitely be back soon!
It is all surrounded by trees , one feels like in the middle of the forest with nobody around. It is actually a cosy home with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms , full kitchen, fireplace in the living room. It feels like actual people lived there, probably elderly couple , who loved to read , to cook. Very special place. Everything you need to have a perfect vacation in Olympic Peninsula. Highly recommended.
The best house we have ever been
The location is beautiful and has easy access to major park locations and charming Port Angeles. The house sits in a perfect setting among the forest of trees and ferns. Very comfortable and convenient house.
Easy drive into town, but feels like you are in the middle of the woods - because you are! Plenty of room for family of five. Unit provided coffee, tea, soaps, and laundry tabs. Nice touches if you forgot anything. Only suggestion I have is to add a shower door or curtain to the beautifully remodeled master. (So someone else can use the vanity while the other showers.)
Love everything the place are quit and at the woods. inside are so pretty and comfortable. lots of games to play. not far away with Safeway，and parks. LOVE IT！
The house was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable. I loved the decor and attention to details. The view of the forest was beautiful. Our family of 6 had plenty of room and we enjoyed a very peaceful time here.
So peaceful, so nice, i wish we could stay longer!
You'll enjoy staying at this property with an extended family as we have. Lot's of room for those with differing sleep schedules. Kitchen is remote from sleeping rooms with a door to dining room eliminating any noise to sleeping areas. Comfortable lounging furnishings. Dining area is likewise comfortable for dining and games. The extra breakfast/dining area off the kitchen with it's own wood burning stove is great. Watch how big a fire you build as it will get hot in there! Lot's of dry firewood just outside the front door. Nice walk-around decks with sufficient roof overhang even when raining.
This is a great home with a lovely wooded view from the vast decks. Very comfortable, kitchen very well appointed, so nice to have a washer and dryer, and so close to Hurricane Ridge.
You can see from the pictures how nice this place is -- tucked away in the woods with no other home in sight but close to town and all the great things Olympic National Park has to offer. The home is big and comfy, with lots of spots to lounge or gather, inside and out, and with beautiful artwork. The real pleasure of this home, however, is in the details you can't see in photos. Really nice sheets and beds. Plenty of fluffy white towels. Toiletries and soap for the sinks and laundry. Sharp knives and kitchen wear that aren't throwaways from the owner's main home. A coffee and tea bar with everything you need for hot drinks. Instructions on how to use things. It's these kind of things that make or break a vacation rental. We live in Missouri but I wish I lived closer to rent this place more often. It's fantastic. We'll be back to Washington just to stay in this place again.
could use access to standard tv channels- not sure if cable or satellite is lacking --only a looped run of local news channels through an app was disappointing. Subscribe to cable would be appropriate for future guesta
This house is nicely located, very clean and quiet.
please use the above info
Convenient to north and west sides of peninsula. Beautifully appointed. Easy to deal with.
A lovely quiet and relaxing location, home away from home.
Quick drive to store, hurricane ridge, downtown. Just off 101 but in a secluded neighborhood surrounded by woods. Very quiet.
House was perfect for family of 4. Great layout. Several dining areas including decks. Large wooded yard for kids to explore.
Strong Wi-Fi. The tv is connected for netflix and there is a good selection of movies, board games, and books. There are usb charging stations and a couple of bluetooth speakers in case it is too quiet.
Sleeping Raven Woodland Retreat is a beautiful, serene home in the middle of the forest surrounded by mature trees. The not very shy deer came to say hello almost every day. Our family of 6 adults thoroughly enjoyed our six-night stay here. We spent 3 days visiting Olympic NP, one day Victoria, B.C., and one day Washington Lavender, Tongue Point at Salt Creek Recreation Area (picnic & tidepooling), the very informative Makah Museum and Neah Bay, where spectacular Cape Flattery Trail is (both not to be missed!). Rialto Beach, although over an hour's drive from the house, is a world unto itself with huge dead tree trunks and huge logs on it, which makes for incredible photos. Also check out either First, Second, or Third Beach near Rialto Beach.
The common areas of the house are very spacious, so everybody could have their own corner, if needed, and we ate our meals (breakfasts and dinners) mostly in the dining area off the kitchen. The bedrooms were comfortable, but it would have been nice to have a half bath so we wouldn't have to wait to use the guest bathroom.
Although we didn't use them, there are decks by the entry door near the kitchen, off the kitchen, and off the master bedroom. We appreciated the keyless entry, which made entering and leaving the home very easy.
The house has very tasteful Native American art and exotic runners in the hallways.
We highly recommend Sleeping Raven Woodland Retreat!
Good layout, bedrooms away from common areas. Spacious and comfortable, secluded private lot, easy to find.
This is a lovely open, spacious house, set in peaceful grounds. And at around a 5 minute drive from town it's not too inconvenient. We were regularly visited by a couple of deer, which gives you an idea of the tranquil location.
Bedrooms are a great size, with one en suite. The living room is lovely and open, with a balcony running the length of the property. There is a Pack N Play crib provided, which isn't listed in the facilities but is ideal if you have an infant with you.
The washer/dryer were high quality, and very useful (with washing tablets provided).
The Sleeping Raven Woodland Retreat was truly a wonderful respite that was welcoming and extraordinarily comfortable. We enjoyed playing games at the dining room table, making meals in the kitchen and enjoying breakfast together. We built a fire and enjoyed it while we were chatting. The kitchen was stocked with nearly every culinary tool possible and all of the equipment was high quality and easy to use. This property is very highly recommended.
We loved this place when we found it on line, but were just wowed when we saw it up close and personal!!!! The cabin was so tastefully decorated for the holidays and seemed warm and inviting as we drove in to the drive way. The beds were deliciously comfortable! Every room had an oriental carpet- something I have always loved, so it was just a little extra for me! Lots of art work. The living area was large and inviting, we didn't have our entire family with us but want to bring everyone back one day!!!!
I look forward to seeing Washington state again, will book again
I searched for a vacation home last minute so there were not a lot of availabilities. Boy, what a find! Great house-clean cut and very spacious. I've never encountered such a well stocked rental house kitchen, lots of things to cook in and appliances to use. No view but seclusion in the woods with huge windows everywhere, a great deck, and peace and quiet make up for it. Easy to find. The icing on the cake for me was not one but two functional wood stoves and an endless supply of wood that provided for the best ambience in the forest ever! Thanks for the use of your lovely home, it made for a great vacation!
Lovely wooded setting only 10 min from Port Angeles. Nicely decorated in NW Indian motif. Very comfortable and quiet. Would be nice to add a grill for BBQ
We really enjoyed the serenity of this place.
Great location for doing things around Olympic peninsula
Wonderful setting and large amount of space! Perfect to explore Hurricane Ridge!
I decided to book this property in spite of it not having tons of highly rated reviews at the time (had just a few ratings which were all high) - turned out to be a great pick & my family of three stayed here for a week.
This home/property is awesome, the location very convenient & we saw a lot of wildlife on the property. Was one of the best vacations we have had- we are so thankful for the opportunity to stay at this property.
This is a beautiful home in the woods. Loved our stay.
Plenty of room here with spacious bedrooms, lots of windows and peace. Would definitely stay here again.
