A QUAINT NANTUCKET WATERFRONT CHARMER constructed by T.B. Balch in 1920, one of the original founders of Brinnon is rumored to be the closest to the water in all of Jefferson County. Great care has been taken to provide romantic and historic ambiance. The only nationally registered, historic, waterfront holiday rental in close proximity to Seattle and Tacoma, and one of the rare few in the Pacific NW.

BALCONY TIME - a guest favorite that offers a panoramic, built in covered balcony with unobstructed day and night (moonlit water is a sight to behold), rain or shine views. Relax and observe the wildlife in their natural setting, and expansive water/Mt Rainier views on the old fashioned rocking glider, or zero gravity recliners. When hummingbirds compete for the balcony feeder it can be quite a show!

NEAR WORLD RENOWNED OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK and Forest (closest side to Seattle or Tacoma 1.5 hrs). Old growth forest with beautiful, cascading waterfalls that are tremendous fun to climb in and around, in addition to picturesque hiking trails that truly put you back in touch with nature. Panoramic, forever views of downtown Seattle, Mt Rainier, Mt. Baker, the Olympic and Cascade mountain ranges + most of Puget Sound, all in close proximity. Fun and pet friendly Dosewallips State Park, with historic logging train trails is a close 3 min walk.

SUBMARINES AND MORE...Also unique to The Historic Balch Retreat is the interesting Trident Navy subs that practice next to the Estuary shelf in the middle of Hood Canal. One of few places in the world to view this unusual and interesting sight right from the interior or exterior of the home!

Choose from river or salt water fishing (check seasons), and fun exploration.

Indulge with a romantic toasty fire (cooler months), hypnotic, sweeping, water and mtn views, 2 person, panoramic, moon lit (ck calendar) master suite jetted spa, complete with candles in the expansive master suite. Reconnect on the cushioned, wooden double rocking chair indoors , or yesteryear rocking glider on the view balcony (we love to rock!) soothes, and relaxes. Celebrate each other with so many appealing things to do together, or revel in total relaxation.

THE LITTLE EXTRAS... we are one of the few holiday rentals to offer RELIABLE, HIGH SPEED WIFI with focus on reliability and high speed (elusive on the Olympic Peninsula in many cases). Cleaning takes place the day of your arrival for a home that is warm, inviting, and low allergen. Wood starter package for a crackling fire (inside or out) and paper kitchen, dining, and bath products provided. You will also find natural luxury soaps, body wash, shampoos, and lotions on hand.

So many amenities from beautiful stemware, numerous spices, to built in magnifying mirrors in bathrooms, and romantic atmosphere by candlelight. The large bonfire ring with built in split log seating near the moonlit waters edge are memories waiting to be made. Don't miss the plump, sweet blackberries on site mid to late summer.

PREFER NOT TO COOK? Esquire magazines #2 choice for Best Bar in America is a close three minute walk at the Geoduck Restaurant, with waterfront deck seating (warmer months). Additionally, The Half Way House Restaurant/Bakery a couple of minutes away with legendary pies/desserts, and 2 for 1 steak night on Friday. New waterfront bistro with indoor/outdoor waterfront seating and "healthy" pizza now available.

SCUBA ANYONE? Those that love this endeavor should thrill to discover octopus, wolf eels, starfish, crabs, shrimp, anemones, algae bloom, clams and numerous other sea creatures at approximately 55 ft depths. Dive charters less than 2 minutes from your door at Pleasant Harbor Marina.

RAIN SHADOW positioning outside of the many convergence zones on Hood Canal can provide more favorable weather in many cases.

SENIORS AND THOSE WITH LIMITED MOBILITY have a mere 3 steps down from the parking area, and 1 step up to the country covered front porch, if staying on the well equipped main level in the charming blue room bedroom, with covered view balcony entrance. The main level provides a large, open concept kitchen and dining, full bath with antique shower ring tub in close proximity to main floor bedroom, media room (serves as 4th bedroom), living room, and panoramic, covered, built in view balcony.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Tori and Wade have extensive backgrounds in the travel industry, education, IT, home design, restoration, and Humane Society management that has helped prepare for providing our guests, and beloved pets with memorable experiences that we hope will warm your heart. We want our guests to feel as if they are staying in a well-appointed, historic holiday home of a good friend.

Why the Owner Chose Brinnon:
We chose this property after nearly a decade long search for a historic waterfront home, with placement near old growth forest where considerable wildlife abounds, preferably on Hood Canal. Good restaurants and top notch shellfish were a must. Our long wait was well rewarded. We hope you'll adore this photographer's playground as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The only authenticated, historic, waterfront holiday rental on Puget Sound fronting the crystal clear waters of Hood Canal on the widest expanse of the longest fjord in North America. Some of the most hypnotic and romantic moonlit views you may ever encounter. Evolving views ever changing that include Mt Rainier + one of the rare places in the world with Trident subs to observe, with shellfish and shell laden beach on a wildlife estuary. A once in a lifetime combination.
