Why if these comments were true would you extend the stay when another guest was trying to book for 2 weeks? The smell was probably from the urine and feces from your dogs left everywhere. Why would you have to steal all of the extra towels that weren’t damaged. Leaving your trash throughout the property is not acceptable and a requirement for you to take with you upon leaving. The dogs did severe damage from chewing off the bottom of the door and trim. I don’t understand why you couldn’t pick up their poop and allowed them to pee on everything. The damage is quite extensive from the paper towel jammed though the toilet which is on septic to not being able to take any other guests after you stay. Beyond inconsiderate, when I only showed you courtesy. You never mentioned any of these problems, if any were real, it would have been taken care of immediately. People like you literally ruin it for others to enjoy a restful stay and make hosts not want to share their property with others after an experience of vandalism like you did. You should be ashamed of what you did and get help to clean up your behavior. I suggest placing you pets with someone who might take better care of them.

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.

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.

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.

The creekside camping area was private and the creek itself was incredible! My kids were hesitant about our trip to begin with, but after only a few minutes of exploring, they were in love!

Rustic shack with incredible view

The view at this property is amazing. Trees wearing moss, a constantly moving creek, and completely private swimming holes. Great for exploring, or enjoy the peace from the huge deck. Host was so sweet and made us feel comfortable at check in. We slept on the deck to enjoy the stars but a bigger bed would make it better for couples. The shack is rough around the edges but has everything you need for a quick getaway from the world. We spotted deer, fish, birds, and frogs. Would definitely come back again.

Wood + wind = epic fire to dance around!So many inspiring spots to sit along the creek.Walking up the building, a portion of the deck and the immersive viewRustic Cabin Site 1

So glad you enjoyed the rustic cabin. It’s a work of art in motion. I heard you loud and clear about the need for a larger bed, started working on that right away. Look forward to hosting you again!
