Olalla Forest Retreat is a stunning Storybook Cottage home that started in the 1960’s on 5 acres of forest & creek bed, tucked along the Kitsap Peninsula. We are honored to have recently purchased the home and cherish the opportunity to share our home & land with guests. Offering a private glamping tent, we look forward to opening the space up to weddings and events, as well as healing retreats, reunions or a magical space for campers. We welcome ALL visitors with respect & gratitude.

The space
Our goal is to offer the moment of magic, wonder and awe that we experienced the first time we arrived at our Olalla Forest Retreat, and hope you enjoy your stay!
Realizing there was no way to replicate the home, we decided to build a stunning, 28x16 foot four season canvas wall tent for guests to enjoy and really feel connected with the beauty of the surroundings. A high ceiling pitch and 5 1/2 foot wide walls gives the feeling of openness to the space while every day luxuries are yours to enjoy. Hand stained floors, front, back and side openings will catch an amazing cross breeze with screens to keep curious insects out. A firm, king 4 poster bed is yours to enjoy with cozy bedding and fluffy pillows. The day bed doubles and a lounging area and super comfy single sleeper with full linens. A cute refurbished chest of drawers for your storage needs as well as storage baskets under the sofa with fresh towels, toasty fleece throws and additional storage for bigger gear is yours to utilize. Full service for 4 is also set up in the sideboard at the foot of your bed. We offer our RIVER battery pack for any charging you may need. This can quickly recharge at one of the power outlets in the kitchen if needed during your stay. The front porch features two extra wide chairs, hanging lanterns with led candles and an awesome little soaking spa that is exclusively yours and sanitized between each visitor. The outdoor kitchen features a cold water rinse sink with prep area, propane grill with a side burner for sautéing and boiling, mini fridge with a freezer and a microwave! Stainless steel storage shelves have handy vinyl covers to protect your grill top kettle, paper towels, and all of your mixing bowls. You will find cast iron pans hanging along the kitchen beams for your cooking needs and any grilling tools as well.
The garden shower is awesome for some on demand warm water and a quick way to wash off from a day of hiking, featuring reclaimed flagstone for standing, River rocks and ferns. We offer Dr. Bronner’s All Free shower wash and our composting bucket seat is a no brainer to use when needed.
The tent, fire pit, kitchen and garden shower are yours and yours alone. The front of the property is for anyone here to wander and enjoy. We are always happy to show you around or give you as little interaction as you’d like.

Where you’ll be

Olalla, Washington, United States

The property is just off of the interstate down a several acres of private farm road where you’ll see three of our neighboring horses, cows and a couple of peafowl, if you’re lucky. Olalla is nestled between Port Orchard and Gig Harbor; both of which offer Fred Meyer grocery stores, Target and Walmart, as well as fantastic downtown Gig Harbor for waterfront eats and drinks and strolling along quaint shops and sea craft rentals. Port Orchard is your gateway to the Puget Sound and onward to Bremerton, Bainbridge and Seattle Ferries. Olympic National Park is everything you could ever ask for in a breathtaking tour of a National PNW Park. Offering the Olympic Mountain Range, the Pacific Ocean, valleys, cliffs and a rainforest.
All of the above are between a 12 minute to 2 1/2 hour drive.
Pure paradise!
