Property description

Privacy and proximity are the best combination for a happy visit here. Relax in a quiet, safe environment just minutes from the Port Townsend waterfront. The “Guest Nest,” a newer house, rests peacefully in a park-like setting, nestled into 5 acres of private woods. Yet it is less than 4 miles from historic downtown Port Townsend. A clean and modern single-level property, this 900 sq. ft. home comes equipped with everything to give you comfort and convenience. Perfect for those who want the luxury of seclusion and convenience in their getaway. You can relax, read on the deck, watch TV or grill something for dinner. Be in town in minutes via car or bike.

The Guest Nest's many amenities include: A full kitchen equipped with dishwasher, dishes, pots and pans, silverware, coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, microwave, full-size refrigerator with ice maker and stove/oven. The dining room table seats 6 people. Two cozy bedrooms with forest views will welcome you at the end of a long day of recreation. One has a queen-size bed and convertible sofa/bed; the other has a full-size log bed. The living room has a 42” HDTV with Apple TV channels and Netflix, DVD player, movies, books and board games. The living room sofa is also a very comfortable queen size high-end futon bed. The house has free wifi and gets strong cell phone coverage. The bathroom includes a large, walk-in shower with bench, a blow dryer and soft towels. For your convenience, enjoy a separate laundry room with washer and dryer. The private side deck has a propane BBQ and plenty of outdoor seating, plus a grassy area. We also have a large social area with a pavilion, fire pit and picnic table that seats 10.

When you're ready to head into town or off to the Olympic National Park for an adventure, everything is nearby. Restaurants, galleries, theaters, grocery stores and shops are all just a short drive. We are also conveniently located to the ferry terminal, old Port Townsend, Fort Worden State Park, Discovery Bay Golf Club and many beaches. Our town provides many festivals throughout the year and offers a variety of recreational fun such as horse riding, sailing, boating, crabbing, fishing and diving locations.

There's plenty of parking at the Guest Nest for your visitors or your boat. Bring your bikes or running gear to enjoy the 8-mile Larry Scott Trail forest and waterfront path right near the Guest Nest. We're less than 1 mile from this popular bike and walking trail that winds through the forest then along the water right into Port Townsend. Or just enjoy the serenity of The Guest Nest: bring your binoculars for birdwatching; your journal for quiet reflection; and sleep in peace without traffic noise.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: The hosts, Bill & Lisa, have worked in the hospitality business for 15 years.

Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend:
There is so much to do in Port Townsend and The Olympic National Park, including hiking, beach combing, festivals, golf, wineries, art galleries, antique shops and craft beer pubs. Port Townsend hosts the famous Wooden Boat Festival and Jazz Festival. Our town is a great place for relaxing, enjoying fine restaurants or beach walking. Port Townsend is part of the Olympic Rain Shadow/Banana Belt. Cities inside this area enjoy more sunshine and less rain than the rest of the Northwest. And Port Townsend is the perfect home base to enjoy day trips to the San Juan Islands, Olympic National Park, the Hoh Rain Forest and Forks.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy. Beautiful wooded setting. Ideal for couples, girls getaways or families. Extensive outdoor space including a deck with BBQ, a private forest, fire pit and pavilion.
