Holmes Harbor cottage description

Located on Holmes Harbor, just 3 miles North of Freeland and 15 minutes from the Clinton ferry landing. Built in 2011, this 1100+ square foot custom cottage boasts everything you’re looking for in an island getaway or family retreat. Our 1 bedroom plus spacious full height loft and 1 1/2 bathrooms, accommodates 2-6 guests very comfortably.

Enjoy panoramic water views and sunsets from most every interior space. Just steps away from relaxing strolls on our private, sandy beach via new medium-bank stairs. Kids will play the day away in the sand, exploring and discovering, then cozy up in the loft to their own flat screen TV and DVD’s. Everyone can enjoy happy-hour on the beach side rooftop deck and spot eagles, herons, whales and seals. You'll enjoy activities for every age in this pristine, spotless and modern setting.

The well appointed kitchen enjoys the same Westerly water view, a sit-up bar, premium cabinets and every appliance and tool you’ll need to make food prep effortless. Cozy up to the instant-on propane fireplace in the living room and watch FREE Netflix, DVD's or channel-surf on the flat screen while staying in touch via FREE wireless, high-speed internet. Heated floors keep toes warm in the beautifully tiled main floor bathroom and laundry room.

The spacious, full-height loft accommodates a second couple and/or the kids. The loft enjoys more breathtaking views and separate, private living space, with its own ½ bathroom, flat screen TV, DVD player, new comfortable queen sleeper bed and a pair of single-size inflatable beds.

*Please note this is a non-smoking property!! Smoking is not permitted in the cottage or anywhere on the premises.*

*Please help us maintain this peaceful and pristine setting by limiting cottage and property occupancy to registered guests.*

                  About: Owners Ted and Cara Clarke invite you to be our guests at this lovely new cottage, completed in summer 2010. This breathtaking property has been in the family since 1974 when Cara’s father built the neighboring log cabin as an accessible weekend retreat from busy life in Seattle. Four generations of family and friends have enjoyed visits there as the close proximity makes it very convenient for even one or two night stays. During the summer you may see us on the beach with our two young children, swimming, crabbing, clamming, collecting muscles or just relaxing and watching the water. Please feel free to say “hello,” make yourself at home and discover why this magical place continues to captivate us each and every visit.
