I spent the better part of three months planning on my proposal to my girlfriend and it centered around getting engaged here. They had a change in ownership about 2.5 months ago and started the process of discussing how I planned to do it with Hiedi Olson who was part of the transitiion and an absolute amazing woman.(Thank You). I had spent 3 months taking pictures of all my dates with my girlfriend or important milestones. Her meeting my son, me meeting her girls, first kiss, romatic getaways and blew them up and printed in black in white matted 11x17. My plan was to go do photography in the Hoh rainforest with her hit Ruby Beach and head back to our caibin. She would walk in to our cabin (14) and see from left to our dates with twinkling candles get down on one knee and ask.
Sara Jean- Terry, Marsha, thank you for not only making this happen but doing a better job than i envisioned. We had cabin 14 which was absolutely perfect. The view was amazing. It was a cute 2 bedroom tastefully decorated and a little kitchenette. I love to cook and it worked great. Upon checkin I was treated like royalty and made to feel special. I believe I was bowed down too at one point. :) We had an awesome day out doing photgraphy and came back to our cabin. My girlfirend was blown away, I got on one knee and for the life of me really dont remember what I said , nor does she. She was skaking as was I and it was sheer happiness. i wont go into more details about the engagement but will share about the facility.
Cabin was clean and wonderful. Fireplace is a nice additon and they give you bundles of wood to enjoy. The matresses are knew as are the linens and comforters. I did not see any sign of mice. We did have no hot water when we got there, but it was resolved in 15 min. They have earthquake sensors that disable it that a bird seems to have hit.
The view from your bed is awesome and we happend to have brought camping chairs and a minor heater and watched a storm rolling in and drank champagne in celebration.
Staff was incredible and so thoghtful and helpful. It could not have been more awesome.
all i can say is thank you for making last weekend one of the most memorable of my life.
