Gig Harbor house description

This vacation home is the kind of vacation home you might visit to write a book or just get away from it all. Enjoy views of bald eagles, deer, blue heron, osprey, and salmon right off the deck. In addition to the natural beauty, the home was designed with your complete comfort in mind, with high ceilings, mahogany floors, and a huge kitchen and bar area. It is located 45 miles from Seattle, just outside the charming town of Gig Harbor, Washington. The vacation rental is also close to Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier, Mount St Helens, and many other great Washington State destinations.

The sleeping area includes a king-size pillow-top mattress with hotel quality sheets, right in front of the fireplace. The luxurious bed and tranquil silence ensure restful nights, from which you will wake to stunning views of the bay and wildlife.

A KITCHEN WITH A VIEW. Prepare the day's catch with a complete view of the bay and stream. The kitchen includes top-quality appliances, commercial grade cookware, a professional knife set, as well as complete sets of wine glasses, cups, plates and silverware for six. The kitchen and bar area is a great place to cook as well as chat between the kitchen and the living room while you prepare a romantic dinner for two or cook up the days catch for the family.

WILDLIFE VIEWING
For anyone who has never experienced a true Alaska-style salmon stream*, it's pretty incredible! The freshwater stream is very clear. You can see the fish right from the deck. And of course, the eagles are there for the salmon as well. The Salish House is also home to cranes, osprey and other bird life. It's the Discovery Channel right outside your door.

THE HOME IS LOCATED five miles outside of downtown Gig Harbor, Washington (a 45 mile drive from Seattle). Local shopping, dining, art galleries, a day spa, and theater are just minutes away, or you can go a bit further and take in Seattle, Mount Rainier, Mount St Helens, or the Olympic Rainforest. The location of the house is perfect for those looking to experience the great outdoors as well as have fun in the city or just relax in secluded elegance.

ACTIVITIES ARE PLENTIFUL. The property is just three miles from Horseshoe lake and Horseshoe lake golf course. In addition, it's within a 20 minute drive of three world class courses: McCormick Woods, Trophy Lake and Gold Mountain. Kayaking, fishing, sailing, hiking and beach combing are popular activities in the area as well.
