Forest Canopy Creekside - #3
Great spot
Gretchen is awesome she is as a person great to talk to. The land is beautiful and is as advertised. Gretchen is a super helpful host that actually stepped up and made a few phone calls to help me sort out a housing situation I needed help with. Shelton is a cute little country town. I dry camped out of my rv with my dog and two cats. My dog went swimming in the creek.

5 Star Creekside Cabin
Highly recommended. As homeowners, we've rented nearly 500 Airbnbs, VRBOs, etc. This homebase in the wild & our hosts exceeded expectations. 5 stars. Details: -A very clean & perfectly sized cabin in the beautiful remote wilds of WA. Sound of the creek running below the cabin, awesome skygazing with shooting stars, great fire pit. Gas, smoker & charcoal grills! -Our hosts were incredible. Delivered surprises to us & were so friendly, generous & thoughtful. Wonderful people...created & respected our beautiful private space. Only visited upon request. Wish we had another night to invite them to a campfire meal! -We are two best friends that felt like we had a homebase for living outside for 5 days. Q or K-sized bed downstairs + Q or K-sized bed in upstairs sleeping loft. Pull-out futon sofa that we didn't need to sleep on (but would accomodate more). -Walk 1 minute to a serene creek perfect for cricking or chilling in provided lounge chairs. -Newts, frogs, deer, little fish & other wildlife share the land and small ponds. -Great deck overhanging creek with tables, chairs & loungers for sunbathing, yoga, meditation, meals, etc. -~5-10 minute drive down dirt road to main road for groceries, produce & Spencer Lake Restaurant (great burgers & bar). -We stayed on-site much of the time. Took day trips to nearby: -- Olympic National Park (Lake Cushman for SUP & hiking). --Hoodsport / Hood Canal (outdoor dining over the canal watching bald eagles & harbor seals). --Harstine Island (one of WA state's best state parks, Jarrell Cove State Park is there) Strongly recommend the hosts and their set-up.

Forest Canopy Creekside - #3
Great host & huge property. Our site was perfect for a Sprinter & hammock, tho not a lot of room for a tent. As they develop the sites, it can only get better, but was perfect for us.

The perfect cozy camping getaway
Gretchen is a wonderful host and pictures do not do the site justice. It's a sweet little cabin, perfect for our family of four, with a gorgeous view and easy access to a lovely river with fish, frogs, and mudskippers. The land is just wild enough to feel like you're escaping the city but you have all the amenities you need (shower with hot water, warm cozy bed) to be comfortable. The land was gorgeous- just cleared enough for walking around but filled with foraging treats like wildflowers, horsetails, and salmonberries. This is the perfect site for folks with young children, or anyone who likes to sleep in a bed but feel like they're in nature.

Peace and owls!
Such a peaceful and lovely place. We were visited by a Barred owl one night as we sat around the campfire! Loved the creek and the bird song.
