A charming modern cabin in the heart of the West Shore, Owl Cottage sits on a quiet, forested lot, surrounded by cedar trees. Ideal for groups, the 4-bedroom private lodge is the host home of Cedar Crest Cottages, a historic vacation retreat located steps from the beach and a one-minute drive from Homewood Mountain Resort. *Please be advised that this home does not have air conditioning. A cozy foyer with stone floors and charming wooden bench greets guests as they enter, offering a welcoming place to discard ski boots or beach gear. Designed for conversation, board games or reminiscing after a day on the lake or mountain, the living room features two full-length leather sofas and matching armchairs that frame an impressive stone fireplace. A flat-screen TV adds entertainment when you want to unwind. Hardwood floors, high ceilings and built-in bookshelves create the feeling of a European alpine lodge. The fully equipped kitchen, well-appointed for the family chef, features cutting-board countertops and every appliance needed to craft home-cooked dinners. A 4-seat dining table overlooks the woods outside, while a large, furnished deck just off the living area adds a table for dining al fresco. *Please note, the BBQ grill on the deck is unavailable for guest use per the local fire department. The community BBQ is available for you to enjoy, Between four spacious bedrooms located on the 2nd level of the home, Owl Cottage comfortably sleeps up to 8 guests: Primary Bedroom - Upper Level King Bed This light-filled room, styled with modern lodge decor, features plush bedding, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and a private entrance to the deck, allowing natural light to stream in. The en-suite bath has a deep soaking tub and separate shower. Guest Primary - Upper Level Queen Bed The second main-level bedroom has a private deck, vaulted ceilings, and a full dresser. Like the primary, this room is full of natural light. Bedroom 3 - Upper Level King Bed Tastefully styled with cedar accent furniture, this room features hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, twin nightstands and picture windows. Bedroom 4 - Upper Level King Bed (or two Twins upon request) This bedroom offers a king-sized bed which can be converted to two twins upon request). Large picture windows offer forest views. Guests outside the primary bedroom share a full bathroom with a tub shower and a separate powder room for convenience.

As a guest of Cedar Crest Cottages, you’ll enjoy access to the community BBQ grill and oversized fire pit with filtered lake and mountain views. In the summer, stroll to the beach across the street for swimming, sailing and boating on the lake, or hike through the surrounding mountains. In the winter, drive less than two minutes to the family-friendly Homewood Mountain Resort, or just 25 minutes to the varied terrain of Olympic Valley.

    The house is nice and cozy, and it's big enough and has enough beds for all 9 of us. The best part of the house is its location. We were going to Homewood Mountain Resort to ski, and it only took us 5 minute-drive to get to and come back. It's also right on the main street. Some may find it too noisy, I can hear the cars at night, but it didn't bother me too much, and I like turning off of the big street and I'm home, since I don't enjoy driving in the smaller streets where it's icy and snowy. It is also not far from where all the eateries/ restaurants are. For the most part, the house is clean. I didn't mean to look for it but I just somehow still saw cobwebs by the lights and in corners. The plates and cups still had stains so I had to wash them before using. For visitors who want to cook in the house, you'll need to bring enough cooking oil and condiments because there isn't much. The stove and the ovens take a long time to cook, and the cookwares stick. Overall, we'll go again
