                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About the owner: Imagine growing up on a blueberry farm!!! Marc & Amy Elizabeth moved from Port Townsend to picturesque Chimacum Valley in 2007. Living at Finnriver Farm has been a step into paradise & allows their 2 young sons to explore the farm, woods around The Huckleberry House.

                          Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend:
                          The Huckleberry House was being used as a mother-in-law cottage when we purchased the property. We decided that until Mom's a bit older, we'd share the beauty of the farm with guests. By the way, Mom did stay over Christmas, and loves the home!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Quiet country living, proximity to Port Townsend, the Historic Victorian Seaport 20 minutes away. Our home and the Huck House are on our property and we are on-site owner/operators. We actively meet all our guests, and enjoy providing farm tours as schedules permit. Come see us!
