Fir Haven Retreat, located 15 minutes from town, is on 40 private acres that have been in the family for generations. The 600sf cottage looks out over a large field surrounded by forest, orchards, trails, canyons, and Siebert Creek. It's perfect for couples and close friends, with 2 dedicated bedrooms and a cozy living room.
Two caretakers live on the property, available if needed. We, and other guests, will give the cottage space for you to enjoy the beauty of the PNW. 12y/o and above only!

The space
*Due to the nature of the property, this listing is UNSAFE FOR CHILDREN. Please read house rules before requesting to book, thank you!*

This cottage was built in 2011 for the family's use when visiting the Peninsula. It has been the much-loved residence of two caretakers for the past 6 years, and is now a space for guests to come enjoy the beauty of this special place.
The cottage interior is eclectic, creatively designed and decorated with the help of friends, Feng Shui, and hundreds of hours building many of the unique furnishings.

Master bedroom has a full closet and small dresser, with a memory foam queen mattress. Small bedroom has full size dresser, as well as space to hang clothes and a double bed. The third sleeping option is a single daybed in the living room.

The bookcase is stocked with novels and informational books about the Pacific Northwest, as well as literary classics and some of the family's favorites.

There is a heater in each room, as well as a heat pump with air conditioner in the main room and a wood burning stove. We will provide firewood, kindling, and all other fire necessities.
We also have an outdoor fire pit with outdoor seating, which is in the cottage’s front yard. Burning there is subject to local burn restrictions; we will notify you of the status upon your arrival.

The kitchen has fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, coffee pot, tea kettle, dishwasher, and plenty of cooking and serving utensils. We stock basic spices as well as coffee and tea.
This house is a wonderful vacation home for couples and can handle up to 5 people.
A stacked washer and dryer are located by the back door, and are available for your use.

The front porch looks out over the lower orchard, field, and forest, and has comfortable chairs to relax on.

We do not allow children under 12 to stay on the property due to hazards that come with a rural space such as this. The Retreat is situated on a peninsula of land that drops off on three sides – between 60 and 150 feet down – into Siebert Creek and its tributaries. There are two fenced-off areas that discourage access to a dangerous undercut bluff, but all visitors must act with due diligence to keep themselves safe. The cottage itself is not child proofed, though all standard safety equipment is installed.

We live outside city limits, and therefore shooting guns is legal. We do not permit firearms at Fir Haven Retreat (due to our role in wildlife conservation and protecting the peaceful ambiance of the environment), but you might occasionally hear neighbors target practicing. We are surrounded by protective dense forest, but the canyon itself amplifies sound so we want to give people a heads up in case this might occur.

The cottage is not wheelchair accessible, unfortunately.

Hello! I'm a Denver native, moved to WA in 2013 and fell in love with the Olympic Peninsula. I've since lived at Fir Haven with my husband Scott, and work locally as a paramedic.

During your stay

We live in the house on the property, visually separated from the cottage by forest. Since Fir Haven is our home and the property takes lots of work (especially during harvest time!) you'll see us on the grounds but will give you and the cottage privacy unless you need anything!
If you have any questions during your stay, we would be happy to answer them. We have done our best to mark out safe areas to explore, but please ask if you are unsure. There should always be someone around if assistance is needed, but you will be given the contact info for all caretakers in case we are off property.
