Holmes Harbor house description

Adults and children alike love the comfort and simple beauty of our beach house. In our family since the 1960’s, our recent remodel kept the same casual feeling and added bamboo and cork floors, a spacious, well-appointed kitchen, and plenty of windows to feel connected to the outdoors. Our stunning covered deck keeps the rain off but lets the sun in so you can enjoy the harbor view and outdoor dining regardless of the weather.

Enter the house through a cozy porch and step into the kitchen that opens to the dining and living areas. The dining table accommodates 5-6 chairs and easy conversation with those preparing the meal at the kitchen island. French doors open to the covered deck equipped with a gas barbecue. The living area is anchored by large picture windows and a wood-burning fireplace. The main floor is completed by a bedroom with a queen bed and a bathroom with shower.

The downstairs has two more bedrooms, one with a queen bed and two twin beds in the other. The downstairs bathroom includes a full-sized bathtub and shower. A sitting/play area is warmed by a gas fireplace.

Children and dogs love to run in our large, unfenced yard. Adults appreciate the hammock, warm outdoor shower, and fire pit. Access our private community beach about a half block down the road for clam-digging, crabbing, swimming, and sandcastle-building. Or just sit back and enjoy the big sky and fresh air.

We are part of a friendly beach community on Holmes Harbor, just 4 miles north of Freeland and a short 15 minute drive from the Mukilteo-Clinton ferry. Nearby must-see attractions include the shops and galleries in Langley, the pie at the Greenbank Farm, the off-leash beach at Double Bluff, and the gorgeous Ebey’s National Historic Landing.

We love this house and community so much that after listing it as a vacation rental in 2011, we decided to move in! Now in 2012, we've moved once again to another home in the same community and so are back in the vacation rental business.
