Shelton house description

YOUR PRIVATE GETAWAY ON THE BEACH!!

For those seeking a peaceful nature retreat with stunning year-round water views, Agate Beach House is the perfect place to relax in solitude or gather with friends and family.

Privately nestled amidst towering fir trees, Agate Beach House offers wide-ranging views of Hammersely Inlet, 8-miles of winding saltwater connecting Oakland Bay with Puget Sound. Watch the playful seals, fish from the beach, dig clams for dinner, and (on rare but fortuitous occasions) witness pods of splashing Orcas from the home’s wraparound deck.

The beach house consists of almost 2300 square feet, sleeping up to eight guests. There are two bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs, with an open sleeping/entertainment room and additional bathroom downstairs.

The spacious main level living room features a cathedral ceiling and an entire wall of windows framing sweeping water views, which is equally mesmerizing in misty fog as when illuminated by bright sunshine. This room is comfortably and tastefully furnished with leather sofas, fireplace, 40” flat screen TV, DVD player, basic cable, a selection of books, as well as wireless internet (available throughout the house).

The open kitchen is fully equipped to prepare a gourmet feast, and includes an espresso machine, blender/food processor, commercial grade waffle maker and cookbooks.

Through the sliding glass doors of the adjoining dining room (seating 6 to 8), the large deck includes a gas grill and outdoor table and chairs overlooking the water. During most weeks of the year, fresh herbs for cooking are available in the garden, which is tastefully landscaped with mostly native shrubs and trees.

Still on the main level, the master bedroom offers a queen bed with water views, cable TV, and an en-suite bathroom with jetted tub. The guest bedroom next door faces the fir trees lining the private driveway. Furnished with a queen size bed, it is situated a few steps from the main level bathroom, which includes a tub and shower.

The downstairs living area offers limited views of the water, a cozy wood stove, and a sliding glass door to the lower garden. This spacious room with a door for privacy is furnished with a twin bunk bed, full size futon, and offers cable TV, videos, and board games. It is an ideal space to entertain children.

Also downstairs is yet another private bedroom with queen bed. There is also a third bathroom with a shower on the lower level.

WATER ACTIVITIES

Enjoy long strolls along the beach in either direction during low tide. Rent a kayak and have it delivered from the nearby town of Allyn (please note that the current strength varies throughout the day; consult tide schedule and kayak rental professionals regarding skill level requirements).

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS

Less than two hours’ drive from Seattle, Agate Beach House offers nearby conveniences and recreation including hiking, fishing, kayaking, wine tasting and fresh local seafood.

Fresh local oysters, Dungeness crab, and fresh and smoked clams can be purchased to bring home, from Taylor Shellfish’s Retail Store on the southern edge of Shelton. One and a half miles from Taylor Shellfish, visit the friendly staff at Walter Dacon Winery’s tasting room and sample their award-winning Washington wines.

In the opposite direction, seven miles north of Agate Beach House, on the way to Harstine Island State Park (which has been described as “the best kept secret in Puget Sound” for its pristine shorelines and protected forests accessible by hiking trails), the Olympic Bakery & Deli offers daily fresh baked goods, quick and healthy casual meals, and wine & cheese tastings.

Take a daytrip to the magical Olympic National Park, North America’s only temperate rainforest, with its breathtaking views and abundant wildlife.

Take the scenic ferry ride from Bremerton to downtown Seattle, where the ferry stops only a few blocks from Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market. Explore downtown Seattle by foot, avoiding the stress of navigating traffic and parking.

Less than 45 minutes’ drive from Shelton, scuba enthusiasts can dive with the giant Pacific octopus, wolf eels, rockfish, and anemones that reside in the clear waters of the Hood Canal.

WELCOME TO YOUR WATER FRONT RETREAT

The setting is so private and the view so amazing, you won't want to leave Agate Beach House once you arrive. Please inquire for more photos.

Agate Beach House is managed by Picture Properties Vacation Rental Management, where prompt and courteous guest service is our priority.
