Hoodsport house description

The waters of Hood Canal, the Longest Fjord in North America, are only a few feet from the cabin. Whether inside the house, on the patio, or from the yard, the views are awesome with any season of the year and in any kind of weather. Both calm waters and white-caped waves have unique qualities that will sooth and heal your soul from the busy and hectic rush of everyday life. Whether from the kitchen, cozy living room or dining area on the main floor you look out onto the expanse of water and wildlife. From the upstairs waterside bedroom, in addition to the view, you can hear the water lapping at the bulkhead as you drift off to sleep.

The main floor bedroom has a queen size bed. One bedroom up stairs has two twin beds and the other a queen bed and a twin bed.. Linens are furnished. The kitchen has all the things you will need for cooking, serving and eating. There is comfortable and ample seating in the living and dining areas. The round table is perfect for not only eating but playing games.

Your TOYS Are WELCOME at The HOOD CANAL and nearby Lake Cushman. There is room for your water toys and diving gear here plus a nearby free boat launch.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              About the owner: My husband and I are retired . We never grow tired of the water views, the wild life, the changing tides and weather. In the summer months I love swimming in the Canal and my husband loves crabbing. Our children, and grand children love to come to the Canal and stay too. . One of our favorite things is to have our morning coffee on our deck or in the living room and watch the wildlife including seals, sea birds, Eagles plus take in the awesome views.

              Why the Owner Chose Hoodsport:
              This cabin belonged to my husbands father. When he passed away at the age of 93, the house became ours. Since we live near and on the canal also. We have decided to share the house and the beauty of Hood Canal.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              In addition to all the benefits of living on the water with adjoining private tidelands, we love the rural location that is away from a city but has many conveniences available in the nearby community of Hoodsport. Also, there are so many things to do just a short distance from your doorstep. Hood Canal abuts the forests of the Olympic Mountain range with its many Vista's and Hiking trails.
