Union house description

The South Shore of Hood Canal and the small town of Union is an extraordinary location for a holiday getaway! Forbes Traveler named Union one of the twenty prettiest towns in America. You are invited to visit our comfortable, tastefully renovated waterfront beach home and experience the magic of Hood Canal! Less than two hours away from Seattle, the beach cabin is at water's edge and has just the right touches to make guests feel cozy and at home. A large, private deck overlooks awesome views of the famous Hood Canal 'Great Bend'. Guests can easily and safely step down from the deck to the beach and water using the heavy duty, aluminum, marine grade ladder. There is a propane and charcoal grill and plenty of seating for outdoor dining, basking and relaxing. The inviting one level floor plan has two bedrooms, one bath and can accommodate up to 5 guests. Each bedroom has a comfortable queen bed with quality linens and if needed, there is a twin sized 18' high air bed.

From the moment guests enter this South Shore beach home they are are greeted with SPECTACULAR, UNOBSTRUCTED VIEWS of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains from the family room the kitchen, the master bedroom and of course, the deck. The PRIVATE BEACH has expansive tidelands for the kids to explore and sweet succulent pacific oysters and delectable Manila clams are easy to collect and do not get any fresher and tastier than this! A unique advantage to this vacation home is that there is a surprising amount of PRIVACY. This peaceful location is the ideal setting for a romantic retreat or to just rest, relax and rejuvenate!

The water is warm and great for kayaking, boating and numerous other water activities. The scenery is awe-inspiring and ever changing. Our guests delight in nature as seals, bald eagles, great blue heron, belted kingfisher and many other migratory birds and ducks abound. The abundant wildlife and phenomenal sunsets provide ample opportunity for captivating photography.

Resting on the shores of Hood Canal and surrounded by the Olympic Mountains, the home is at a CONVENIENT CENTRAL LOCATION. In the city of Union, you are just 2 miles from Alderbrook Resort and Spa. The beach home is a great spot for a bride and groom, their guests, or members of a wedding party to stay at leading up to the big day. The Union City Beach House is just a 4 minute walk away from the UNION COUNTRY STORE, the Hood Canal Marina (where you can rent kayaks), the Public Boat Launch, Union Paddle and Row and the 2 Margaritas Family Mexican Restaurant.

Besides the numerous water related activities, there are many things to do at Hood Canal, especially for the adventurous!

              Owner info

              Why the Owner Chose Union:
              We love the beauty of Hood Canal and the many recreational opportunities like fishing, boating, hiking and golfing. Even though the home is only 90 minutes from the Seattle area, you feel like you are a million miles away from the fast paced daily grind.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The Union City Beach house is the perfect vacation spot! This peaceful location is just a four minute walk to downtown Union, the Marina and boat launch, the Union Country Store and the 2 Margaritas Mexican Restaurant. The home is right over the water at high tide and at low tide you can venture hundreds of yards out onto the mudflats. This property has a unusually private setting compared to most other waterfront homes in the area.
