Individuals or couples have different priorities. Do you want a weekend's change of pace with convenient access to amenities, theaters, restaurants? Or do you want to get further off the beaten track and away from the hustle & bustle so you can turn off your cell phone and read (or write) without interruption? The Valley View may be described as "rustic", simply because it's relatively basic. You have everything you need in the small cabins, and you can bring your dog if you wish. The cabins have a pleasant history, and you can discuss that with the resident managers. I found it a welcomed getaway, and returned again to see that it remained so. Cabins are about $70 a night, and Port Townsend isn't far away if you prefer a restaurant dinner to whatever you may cook yourself. The "exposed" hot water heater described by a previous reviewer is a modern European type by which hot water is heated in close proximity to a sink or shower so it remains hot instead of traveling through cold pipes. You need not wait for the water to warm up. I infer that reviewer's priorities are different than mine, as are some of the observations. I didn't perceive the door as flimsy nor did I regard the rural environment as threatening. I travel occasionally on business, and I have several expectations for logding, but I appreciated this place because it is a getaway, an opportunity to discuss, to relax. Explore without presupposition. Don't expect entertainment; be your own entertainment! They're nicely maintained cabins on a highway, not luxury suites at the Waldorf-Astoria! If you want quality time to spend with your wife and/or children, this is a good choice. Discuss your needs or preferences when you call for a reservation or directions, and enjoy your time there.
