The owners are lovely - honest, decent, salt-of-the-earth sort of people. They make one feel very much at home. They had their adorable dog Panda do a little show for me. They gave me free run of their very comfortable living room with its great fire and TV. The highlight of my stay was the cadilac outdoor's jacuzzi. I had it all to myself - warm water, cool quiet air, stars in the sky - fabulous.
What I loved about my room: the slidling glass window onto a lovely deck that overlooked the Sol Duc river; the big bathroom with the jacuzzi tub/shower. It was clean and comfortable and had everything I needed.
I wasn't crazy about the fact that the room was off the kitchen and that it was filled with beds (3). The room could very comfortably sleep 5 people, maybe more, and with the lovely deck would not feel crowded - hence great value for families.
Breakfast was a very large stack of pancakes, fruit, juice, bacon. My hosts were so gracious about sitting with me and making conversation. I hadn't planned on going to Cape Flatterly but they convinced me that it was worth the drive. I was so glad I took their advice.
The location was great - just off 101, convenient for La Push and Sol Doc.
