Harstine Island cabin description

Harstine Island is located 16 miles from Shelton, a peaceful little town located between Highways 101 and 3 on the Olympic Peninsula. Harstine Island is the third largest island in the South Sound (after Vashon and Bainbridge) consisting of 40 square miles with 30 miles of shoreline. The island is non-commercial and rural with dense forestation and abundant wildlife.
Located on a quiet cove, our cabin is a place to let your cares slip away. You will love the old fashioned romance of the antique filled cabin on 5 beautiful acres. Two sets of French doors open to a covered porch. From the porch rockers or the porch table and chairs you can watch the tides rise, blue herons take wing and otters pop their heads up to peer at you. Your own private deck with a gas bar-b-que and table and chairs overlooking the saltwater cove.
Peaceful accommodations with spectacular views. Rest awhile on a garden bench or on one of 3 large decks overlooking the Puget Sound and the snow capped Olympic Mountains.
Complimentary treats frequently appear-scones with homemade jams, hot cookies, muffins, cheese and crackers--whatever the weather or season inspires.
Leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind and reserve your special moment in time.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: Mike grew up in the Tacoma area. Went to Northern Az. University and taught school for 30 years in Yuma, Az. I grew up in Southern Illinois, moved to Yuma in 1968. Mike and I have 6 grown children and 2 very spoiled island dogs.

                  Why the Owner Chose Harstine Island:
                  We came to Lacey Wa. for vacations every summer from Yuma, Az. July 3rd, 1988 a cousin brought us to Harstine Island to dig clams. As soon as we crossed the bridge I knew this is where I wanted to live. When we both retired in 1995 we began to fill our dream.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  If you are looking for a quiet restful cabin surrounded by evergreens and the sounds of nature this is for you! Spend the day digging clams and getting oysters right off the beach. Everything is provided. Spend the evening around your own outdoor firepit. Firewood and marshmallows provided. Enjoy the well stocked games, puzzles and movies.
