Spend some time relaxing & stargazing with nearly zero light pollution in our cozy off-grid camping cottage perched on a 200' bluff at the edge of the Salish Sea. Enjoy breathtaking views of the strait of Juan de Fuca all the way to Canada. Sleep in the cottage, or pitch your tent (or ours) & sleep under the stars, or in the provided hammock. Listen to the waves lap, and watch amazing sunsets from bed. Enjoy the total privacy and serenity of this special forest retreat with many different nooks to just chill. You will feel a world away, while watching the bald eagles and whales play right out front. Start your day with sun salutations using our provided yoga mats or a cup of complimentary tea.Thoughtfully designed nearly 50 years ago by local wooden boat builder, this space is saturated with cozy charm. It provides a truly memorable rustic escape, be it for romance, creativity, or just peaceful retreat, yet is only 10 minutes from the Victorian seaport of Port Townsend. Off-Grid: Think camping with a roof and a bed. No power. No water. Wood-stove for heat. 

The neighborhood is mostly small homes on acreage, with quiet neighbors who like to keep to themselves. Please respect them by keeping noise levels down and not leaving the property boundaries which are marked with orange flags and stakes.

Important Details: 

*The cabin is accessed by a dirt trail, it is a bit steep and about 100' from the parking. 

*Pets: No pets allowed currently, this is for their safety as well as that of wildlife.

*Due to the bluff, NO CHILDREN between the ages of 2-12. Babies under 2 are welcome!

*Bluff: There is NO ACCESS TO THE BEACH. It is a very high, steep, primitive bluff. All signs and fences MUST be respected.

*Cooking: Inside the cabin is table that seats 4, and a small counter space. There is a 4-burner propane stove with oven for cooking. The wood-stove for heating & a wood pile outside will keep you cozy. 

*Sleeping: There is a king sized Tempur-Pedic memory foam bed in the loft bedroom, & a single daybed in the sun-room. There is also a memory foam floor-sofa that folds out to a double bed in the loft. Please bring your own sleeping bags or other desired bedding. The loft has full standing height, and is accessed by ladder only, please be prepared to climb. The foldout floor sofa may be moved to the ground floor for those who prefer not to climb the ladder.

It’s hard to describe this beautiful place... amazing is the only clear descriptor! It’s an isolated little nest, castle, cabin that’s nestled on a cliff. Beautiful isolation with some of the comforts of a modern life. Eclectic and romantic. We’re for sure going back!

Rustic cabin in the woods. The perfect getaway for a few quiet days. I loved waking up to the sound of sea birds, waves, and a wind chime. I spent most of my time sitting in the window seat looking out over the water and my husband took up residence by the wood stove. The ladder to the loft/bed was manageable for me at 34 weeks pregnant, but I wouldn't recommend it if you have mobility issues (same goes for the path up to the cabin). Luckily there is an option to drop the mattress down to the main floor if needed. The host met us at the site and showed us around, very friendly and accommodating.

We had a fantastic stay at Lizzy's cabin. The cabin was much larger than we expected, and the hosts were fantastic and super helpful however the most surprising thing for us was the location itself. We were a 15 minute drive from Port Townsend and yet truly felt like we were at the end of the world. Bringing extra flashlights/lanterns will help since there isn't running electricity!

This is an incredible little cabin, perched on a bluff looking out over the strait. The hosts were beyond accommodating and the cabin, despite not having power or running water, has pretty much everything else you might need. This cabin has a lot of character. Very private and very secluded, if that’s what you’re looking for. The views, and the land it sits, on are truly mind blowing. Had a great time and definitely look forward to returning.

Staying here was such an amazing experience. The cabin is located a couple of hours from Seattle but feels like it's worlds away. Port Townsend, a Victorian seaport town, is located 10 minutes away and has everything you'll need to make the most of your stay. The directions were easy to follow, the cabin was incredibly well maintained, and the Host was so friendly and helpful in getting us set up. This is a great year-round getaway from the City and offers insane views of the Salish Sea, Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Protection Island. Firewood was available onsite but we brought our own. The cabin is fully off-grid so be sure to bring plenty of water and a headlamp or two! Cannot wait to come back here!!

We had a great time at this spot. It was even better than anticipated! We booked last minute, and weren't able to get to the site until after dark. Lissy was very accommodating and made the cabin cozy for us upon arrival. Its a really sweet spot with a beautiful view of the ocean. We would definitely like to return another time to catch the sunset!
