Port Townsend house description

Enjoy your own home away from home while visiting Port Townsend. The “Guest Nest” sits on 5 acres nestled in the woods in a park-like setting less than 4 miles from historic downtown Port Townsend and the waterfront. Relax in a quiet, safe environment just minutes from town. Perfect for families that need some extra room outdoors or couples who want a secluded setting for a getaway. Plenty of room to take a morning walk or enjoy some family bonding time around a group firepit in the evening. Children can explore our private forest and enjoy large sandy play areas near the house, while you relax, read on the deck, watch TV or grill something for dinner. Grocery stores, restaurants, galleries, theaters and shops are all just a short drive. We're 2 miles from the water. If you have family or friends coming to Port Townsend for a wedding, anniversary or family reunion, our 5-acre property is the ideal venue for group meals, receptions or just gathering your whole group in one place.

We are conveniently located close to Fort Worden State Park, Discovery Bay Golf Club, the Larry Scott Memorial Trail that leads down to Port Townsend Marina (used by walkers, equestrians and bicyclists), Jefferson County International Airport, Centrum Arts and many beaches.

We are also close to horse boarding, sailing, boating, crabbing, fishing and diving locations. Our town provides many festivals throughout the year. Port Townsend offers a variety of events, restaurants and recreation. This Victorian Seaport is a perfect place for weddings, honeymoons and family reunions. With 5 acres available at the Guest Nest, the hosts can help you plan rehearsals, meals and receptions.

This newly built, clean 900-square-foot home comes equipped with everything to make your stay the most comfortable experience possible. The fully equipped kitchen comes with dishes, pots and pans, silverware, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, full size refrigerator with ice maker, stove/oven and dishwasher. There are two cozy bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and convertible sofa/bed; the other with a full size log bed. The living room has a very comfortable queen size high-end futon, 42” Plasma television with Apple TV channels and Netflix, DVD player, movies, books and board games. The home is also equipped with free wifi for your cell phone or laptop, and the house gets strong cell phone coverage. The bathroom includes a large, full-sized shower with bench, a blow dryer and soft towels. There is a fully equipped, separate laundry room with washer, dryer, iron and ironing board.

Outside enjoy plenty of parking for your visitors, boat, horse trailer, RV or motor home. There is a private propane BBQ located at the secluded side deck accessed by a sliding glass door, which is great for entertaining. There is also a shared picnic area with a covered eating area that can be lit at night. Kids will enjoy having some room to roam on our forested property, while the parents know they're safe and nearby.

When you're ready to head into town or off to the Olympic National Forest for an adventure, everything is nearby.

          Year Purchased: 2009

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

          Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend:
          There is so much to do in Port Townsend including Golf, Winery, Sightseeing, Brewery, Art Galleries, Blues, Jazz Festivals, Wooden Boat Festival, Concerts in the Park or just a great place for relaxing or beach walking! Too many fun things to list. You must see it for yourself. Port Townsend is part of the Olympic Rain Shadow/Banana Belt.

And Port Townsend is the perfect home base to enjoy day trips to the Olympic National Park, the Hoh Rain Forest and Forks.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Room to bring your toys, plenty of parking, privacy, beautiful wooded setting. Ideal for couples or families.
