Indianola house description

Discover the BEST sandy beach on Puget Sound! Enjoy an unobstructed, breathtaking view of Seattle, Bainbridge Island, and Mount Rainier from atop a south facing bluff.

Plan your day as the morning tide rolls gently in and out of the bay. Smell the salt air and indulge in the sounds of a beach awakening. Watch as bald eagles soar in clear sight, and herons search for their perfect morning catch. Otters play, dogs fetch and people stroll. Welcome the fresh evening air, as the lights of the Seattle skyline decorate the night sky.

This rural residential area, is just south of Kingston on the part of Puget Sound called Port Madison. It was originally established (in 1916) as a summer community for Seattleites. The Indianola dock, built when the Mosquito Fleet boats supplied the majority of transportation on Puget Sound, was easy access for weekending families. Now this local landmark has been converted for recreational use (shortened to 870 feet), and the center of on-going local activity.


Conveniently located just one hour from downtown Seattle. TAKE THE 30 MINUTE (BAINBRIDGE) FERRY FROM DOWNTOWN SEATTLE AND ANOTHER SHORT 25 MINUTE DRIVE TO PARADISE. JUST MINUTES to Suquamish, Poulsbo, Kingston, Bainbridge Island. You can also take the Edmonds to Kingston Ferry (10 minutes away), or drive around via the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. We're just 7 miles from the popular Clearwater Casino.

Public beach access is adjacent to the property, or if you prefer,down a winding trail directly from the patio.

Bring your own boat and launch it at the public boat ramp (just a few blocks away), or in Suquamish (just a 7 minute drive), and moor it out front on our buoy! Starting in May and through the end of October, we provide a dinghy and 4 (single person) kayaks for your use as well! Yay - fun!

The Indianola Country Store is a must-see stop! It houses a wonderful deli, an accumulation of goodies from local artisans and farmers, Indianola souvenirs, as well as basic staples for a short-term stay. The owner (Rob) will most probably remember your name when you come back! The beach house is a quick 2 minute walk to the store, post office, and community center.

All linens, cooking utensils, full-size appliances, four flat panel TV's with free cable channels, DVD player, WiFi for your portable laptop, gas fireplace, outside gas grill, fire-pit (wood provided) etc. are available to YOU for the perfect Puget Sound experience!!

First level: Entry, custom 3/4 bath with walk-in shower, laundry room with full size washer/dryer, a 'great room' style living area with a gas fireplace, a gourmet kitchen which includes two ovens, full size stainless appliances, maple cabinets, granite counters and a huge center island. The living area spills off to a large 1500 square foot deck/patio area with gas grill, ample seating and firepit...overlooking a breathtaking Puget Sound waterfront view!

Second level: Living/dining area with a sleeper-sofa for two, and another deck with patio seating as well. Down the hall you will find a 'king' bedroom with it's own walk-in closet. Across the hallway is private 'bunk room' (full/twin) that sleeps three more. One full bath.

Third level: Sitting area adjacent to a 'queen' bedroom with walk-in closet...looking out to another spacious, view deck. A separate private (den) can be reached by walking through the bedroom. There you'll find a full-size futon and day bed for more sleeping options! One full bath.

THIS PROPERTY HAS BEEN IN OUR FAMILY FOR OVER 90 YEARS, but the house is all new - we'd love to share the view with you!

                  Swim, sail, water-ski, kayak, explore and play off one of the best beaches in the State. In season, you can fish, crab, dig for clams, or just do nothing at all! One of the more interesting things in town is the annual summer festival 'Indianola Days', complete with fun run, amateur sand castle building, salmon bake, occasional talent show, and pet parade!
