Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Photo taken at the Nordland Store on Marrowstone Island. Nordland is the community gathering hub of Marrowstone, where islanders visit with some espresso, watch the football game or enjoy a weekend music concert.

Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend:
We have lived on Marrowstone Island for 12 years. As world travelers, we feel Marrowstone is one of the most pristine places on earth! The natural beauty and peace of the island captured our hearts. While we need to live off the island for now, we hope to move back someday soon. In the meantime, we wish to share this lovely retreat with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Nordland store on Marrowstone island provides visitors a real taste and flavor of island hospitality! Local wine and beer offered. Rent DVDs, boats, espresso or chat with locals. You can also purchase a dozen fresh oysters off the beach to take and BBQ! Delicious!
