Union house description

For additional information, please visit our web site at: www.enchantment-retreat.com

In 1889 logging pioneer John McReavy came to Union City on Hood Canals south shore alongside the Native American communities of the Skokomish Indians that had gathered where Hood Canal makes its great bend and the Skokomish River makes it’s run off into Hood Canal where Salmon every year spawn up the Skokomish River.

Across from Union, President Franklin D. Roosevelt selected the Olympic National Park in 1938. The mountains to the west of Union that create scenic views across Hood Canal are Mt. Washington, Mt. Constance, and the Brothers.
Mt. Ellinor is one of the southern-most peaks in the Olympics, and is Mt. Washington's closest neighbor. A surveyor by the name of George Davidson named the mountain after his boss' youngest daughter. (Davidson also named 'The Brothers' after her two brothers, and Mt. Constance after Ellinor's oldest sister.) On a reasonably clear day, and day hike, Ellinor can offer a variety of incredible views of all the major Cascade peaks, as well as close-range views of neighboring Mt. Washington, Stone, Pershing, and a glimpse of Mt. Olympus in the distance.

The generation following McReavy drew creative inspiration from the remarkable landscape, and circulated around the Olympus Manor, an artist colony that prospered until 1952 when the Manor itself burned down. As a result, Union holds the title of the first non-native artist colony in Washington State.
Current attractions include working farms, roadside markets, and a variety of world-class golf courses, marina and public boat launch. At the Alderbrook Resort, a four-star spa offers a refine way to relax, rejuvenate and only a short drive from the Enchantment Retreat.

Hood Canal is the only true saltwater fjord in the lower United States. Its clear deep waters provide world-class shrimp and salmon fishing, scuba diving, and miles of pristine shoreline for boaters, kayakers, beachcombers and lovers of nature. Scenic drives alone Hood Canal can find oneself in small towns with arts and crafts along with antiques. Today, visitors come for summers of sunshine and shellfish, and the annual return of the salmon. There is always something in the year round along Hood Canal as the contemplation of winter, to watch the herons out on the docks, motionless water at high tide.


Keywords: Located on Enchantment Ridge with stunning views overlooking the south shore of Hood Canal, the Olympic Mountains, and the Skokomish Valley. This beautiful 2-bedroom, 1-bath, accommodates a party of 4 very comfortably. This property is within a gated property with professional landscapes, fully equipped gourmet kitchen with its very owen fresh herb garden. This property is within minutes of hiking in the Olympic National Park, boating on Hood Canal with marina very close by, beach activities either clamming, oystering or take a swim in the warm waters of Hood Canal after the tide rolls in a number of State Parks close by, not to mention all kinds of water activities up in the Lake Cushman area of Hoodsport. In 2009, Union’s recently named as one of the top 20 prettiest towns in America by Forbes Traveler magazine and it is no wander that one of the richest men in the world calls Union home in the summer.
