Kitchen completely equipped. New bathrooms. New queen and full beds. Expansive west-facing deck, morning terrace, firepit.
Watch eagles soar over the historic boathouse that houses a classic Eddon rowing boat. See the sea otter and harbor seals play off shore. Swim, dig clams, pick oysters, crab, beach walk, canoe, bicycle. Get acquainted with the abundant marine life. Visit the deer in the meadow.
In summer eat dinner on the deck in the glow of the sunset. Roast s'mores over an open fire. In other seasons stay warm by the fireplace, curled up with a good book . Watch the weather move across the water in ever changing patterns and colors. Watch the sun rise over the dew studded meadow, Bask in the light of the moon reflected in the bay before it sets behind Indian Island.
Enjoy a morning latte at the Nordland Store, where islanders gather to get the news. There you can provision with local produce and eggs, island-made cheese, speciality smoked salmon, plus select a premium bottle of wine or artisan beer and choose from an interesting selection of movies for the DVD.
Premier destination Ft. Flagler State Park ,an historic and natural resource treasure at the north end of island, invites your exploration . So do the two county parks on the island.

This island living is only 20 minutes away from the delights of historic Pt. Townsend: restaurants, breweries, shops, museums, concerts, Ft. Warden State Park, the Wooden Boat Festival, the Jazz Festival and other seasonal events. Chimacum is close by, the center of a growing sustainable agriculture movement. Visit the many farms to buy what is in season. Weekend farmer's market.

wonderful quiet getaway
wonderful quiet getaway
Whether you are a nature lover or a fan of outdoor recreation or someone seeking an especially serene environment that will help you unwind, this is the ideal place to spend some time. We are all of the above and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The house is clean and easy to use, with helpful and friendly "tips" from the owners to help visitors make the most of their vacation. We also greatly appreciated the opportunities to use the canoe (and life jackets) and trail bikes (and helmets) provided by the owners. Taking a paddle along the shoreline of Kilisut Harbur just can't be topped as a way to appreciate this beautiful spot! We have already asked the owners about making a reservation for next summer. Highly recommended!!!

A perfect get-away-from-it-all
A perfect get-away-from-it-all
As one of the owners of this exceptional property greeted us when we arrived, "Welcome to paradise!" This beautiful house and land, right on Kilisut Harbor, speaks clearly of the love and attention to detail that went into its design and then its years as a beloved family gathering place. There are hints of Alma Taylor's life scattered through the house -- in the spice jars on a shelf above the kitchen counter, the blankets in the linen closet, the assortment of tea-party dishes tucked away in the antique sideboard, the odd bric-a-brac aging beautifully in the boat house. We felt like her personal guests during our week there, which was the perfect place to escape to to celebrate a milestone birthday (a birthday dinner at the nearby lovely Ajax Cafe included "Happy Birthday" sung by everyone in the restaurant). This house and setting provided one of the most relaxing and restorative vacations we've ever had. Imagine sitting on the deck eating breakfast and gazing out across the calm expanse of water with Indian Island as a backdrop. Suddenly a bald eagle swoops in, struggles on the surface with a large fish, then lifts off heavily to a treetop feast, calling back and forth to its mate somewhere nearby. Or a curious seal tags along as you row a small boat along the shore, popping up now and then just to check whether you're in the fishing business. The moon on the water at night is stunning, especially if you only first notice it in the calm following a sociable evening around the fire pit. The house provided everything we needed, and more. We were delighted to find this property after becoming familiar with Marrowstone through my niece, who runs Mystery Bay Farm, a goat dairy farm, nearby (try their award-winning chevre at the wonderful Nordland store, the center of island life). Now, our only concern is that our rave reviews to friends and strangers will make it impossible to get reservations in the future! For we'll most definitely return.

Beautiful Olympic home
Beautiful Olympic home
The pictures do not do this property justice! This home is a beautiful, well taken care of family heirloom. Our family was lucky to have five days enjoying the tide pools, fishing, crabbing, eating dinner outside and generally relaxing. Heaven! We will definitely return for a second visit.

About the owner: Our home on Kilisut Harbor was built by our parents in 1969, in fulfillment of their retirement dream.. Now the extended family...children, grandchildren and great grandchild... are fortunate to be able to continue to enjoy this very special place in all seasons. A small scale house by design, it incorporates the beauty of the site at every angle and promotes indoor/outdoor living. It is quintessential Pacific Northwest. No wonder we love it so. We are 6 generations of Washingtonians. Its a getaway place in winter and a festival of activities in the summer: baseball in the meadow, an impromptu golf course, good moorage for a boat, fun on the beach, crab boils, songs round the campfire. In any season a beachwalk on driftwood-strewn Marrowstone Point is a must where we search for the latest treasures high tide has brought. You will find us outdoors, year 'round, and always outfitted in the uniform of Puget Sound country: fleece, goretex and and waterproof boots. We know this place to be rare and priceless, we are pleased to share it with others who will treasure it as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend:
Island ambiance, Ft. Flagler, protected water, access to cruising waters north and south, gateway to the Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park and the ferry to Victoria. Lively cultural scene in Pt. Townsend. Sense of history. Seattle within reasonable distance by ferry.
