Tahuya cottage description

Come enjoy the beauty of Hood Canal at SummerTide Resort and Marina. We are a resort located 15 miles past Belfair on the Northshore Road (Hwy 300). Our 260 feet of waterfront beach invites summer sunbathing, fall fishing, shrimping and crabbing in season.

SummerTide Resort and Marina offers a unique relaxing ambiance in a beautiful waterfront area that still enjoys nature -- see bald eagles, fish from our docks, float on an air mattress, read a book, drop a crab pot, or just spend lazy days and nights. We look forward to hearing from you!

Our listing on VRBO is for the Sunset View Cottage. We have several additional cottages that are rented together or separately. Please check out our website for more details, photo gallery and general information.

The moorage docks are put in before May 1st and removed sometime in September. There are 22 inside moorage slips that can take up to a 20' boat. There are several outside slips that can handle much larger boats. We have annual moorage and nightly moorage. We do not allow guests to sleep aboard their boats. Nightly moorage for non-guest is on an availability basis. Reservations are required. Please call for fee schedule.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: My Mom and I bought our vacation property on the North Shore of Hood Canal in 2008. We have both experienced vacation rentals around the world. We wanted one of our own and to be able to share it with people that love the calm, warm waters of Hood Canal.

                      Why the Owner Chose Tahuya:
                      Summertide is comfortable, come as you are and be who you are kind of place. No need to put a tie on for dinner, sometimes you are still in your swim suit.... We want to show children the camping/vacation experience that is in their backyard of the cities of Seattle and Tacoma. It only takes about 1.5 hours to arrive from Seattle. After you stay for 2 nights you feel like you have really had a vacation away from traffic, telephones and laundry. After you stay a week, you find yourself asking your neighbors to pick up milk and bread for you, as you really get dug in and don't want to go any place except the lawn chair or floating water mattress in front of your cottage.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The cottage is FULLY furnished with everything you may need from dishes to linens to books and movies. Bring your food and drink and you are set. Even if you forget something, you are most likely to find it in our country store. Ice and Propane are sold here too. Hood Canal has the warmest salt water in the Northwest because of the naturally occurring tides that happen twice daily. The water gently comes in over the beach rocks that have been warmed by the sun, the water is heated by the beach and then gently goes out again to eventually warm the top few feet of water through out the canal. The Tahuya National Forest is within minutes by car, and is famous for recreational dirt bike and 4-wheel drive trails. There are also great hiking and horse back riding trails. From your cottage you can see bald eagles and playful sea lions.
