Martin and Suzann are owners and full-time managers of Olympic View Cabins. They are close by so are available whenever you might need. Suzann Pilot purchased this area in 2004 and their son designed and built the cedar Compass Rose House in 2010.
We had a vision for over 30 years of a family compound where we could live and share a beautiful natural environment with our son and daughter. We travelled the Pacific Rim, New Zealand and Canada in search of a place. When we found this place 9 years ago it felt like we had found our place.
The Olympic Peninsula provides a remarkable natural beauty of almost every sort. We climb mountains and get into areas with pristine glaciers and lakes and see bear and goats and deer, and a huge variety of birds. We love to find waterfalls that few people have found and explore the rainforest mysteries summer and winter. Our children surf the waves as we explore the beaches which have unusual pinnacles and formations, and we collect driftwood and bask on the white sand. We take our family picnicking on the beautiful clear rivers where they often catch Steelhead or Salmon. Skiing and snowboarding and several winter sports are a big attraction. And always, we make sure visitors get into the exceptional Olympic National Park.
We take great pride in the home we offer to you with meticulous detail. Our son designed the Compass Rose House and we all built it together. Some refer to it as 'elegant camping' since you feel like you are almost out of doors with the openness the home has to all the surroundings. You have all the luxuries for truly comfortable living; excellent beds and linen and great cooking facilities--even the best of organic local herbs.
Our specialty in life has been to enjoy and appreciate nature and to help others have that passion too. And that is witnessed in our lovely property and the beautiful homes we have blended with the natural environment. For those who want privacy, we provide it. For those who want a serene and restorative Northwest experience, we provide that. Our homes are surrounded by meadows and a pond filled with fish, with majestic trees lining the edges and wildflowers. We have tried to make nature available and enjoyable out of every window and from every deck. Our hot tubs are outside so you can view the stars. You can see the Olympic Mountains in all their array from nearly every window. We want to touch people, to leave a lasting memory of enjoyment and rejuvenation, to have an infectious experience that compels them to want to pass on the importance of our natural resources to everyone.
