Poulsbo house description

Charming Vintage Home with a beautiful sandy beach located in Poulsbo Washington on the pristine waters of the Hood Canal is a perfect way to experience the best of the Northwest. Surf and sand at the end of a large lawn offer a beautiful vacation setting. This is a true beach house just steps across the lawn to the no bank sandy beach.
Enjoy Bald Eagles and Ospreys overhead with the call of the Sandpiper or Kingfisher in the background.
Located just 10 minutes from the Nordic town of Poulsbo with boutique shops and great restaurants, a waterfront park that hosts festivals and live music on summer evenings. The clear deep waters of the Hood Canal framed by the evergreens with snow capped peaks in the distance are the true Northwest Experience. You will love the peace and quiet and you may even see a submarine from the nearby Bangor Submarine Base go by.
Located in Lofall you will also have access to the lovely Red Cedar Farm wedding venue.
Nearby are many sightseeing opportunities including historic Port Gamble and of course the entire Olympic Peninsula with rainforests, miles of trails and the Olympic National Park. There are a multitude of easy day trips to really see and experience the Northwest at its best.
Hiking, Fishing, kayaking, sailing and other water sports are available nearby. The difficulty will be in choosing what to do from the myriad of opportunities that await. The Saturday Farmers Market in downtown Poulsbo is one of the best around.
The Clearwater Casino is 15 minutes away with summer concerts outdoors, live entertainment in the lounge and of course world class gaming.
If you choose to stay in and enjoy the ambience of the beach house, Central Market a destination grocery store is 10 minutes away with an extensive wine and beer selection, a gourmet olive and cheese bar and the best fresh and local organic produce, meats and seafood. They have take out BBQ, an espresso stand, fresh sushi, fresh ice cream and so much more.
The house offers everything you need to be comfortable and feel a world away. Free Wi-Fi and a desk offers a workspace if you must stay in touch with your business.
The rec room features a pool table, wood burning stove and pull out couch for cozy evenings. In addition there is a living room in the front of the home with views of the water and French doors that open to the huge wrap-around deck. A day bed is tucked in the corner for relaxing and reading or offers an additional sleeping space.
The kitchen is light and bright with an eating nook that comfortably seats 6-8. We outfit the kitchen with all of the utensils and dishes you need to create your own meals with the fabulous fresh NW ingredients you bring home from the farmers market or the gourmet grocery stores nearby. BBQ or cook indoors you will have everything you need.
A large dining table with water views adjoins the kitchen that seats 8-10 and there is another outdoor table that seats 6-8 for morning coffee, an afternoon picnic or those lingering summer evening barbeques.
There is a bedroom with a double bed and a full bath on the main with tub/shower combo and another 3/4 bath on main with a shower only. In addition to the two baths on the main floor there is a half bath upstairs.
Upstairs are three bedrooms featuring a king bed in the first one, a double in the second and a trundle bed (two twins in the third.
Downstairs is a pull out sofa in the rec room and an adults only loft with two double futons that can sleep 4.
The beach house is reminiscent of summers past with a true vintage feel. Built in the late 1800's it retains much of the charm of yesteryear. Over the years our guests have remarked that staying there has been one of the best vacations they ever experienced.
We look forward to sharing our special beach house with you and yours. Welcome to the Beach House Cottage

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2005

          About the owner: Tim and Jana Wilkins are Bainbridge Island Real Estate Agents at John L Scott Real Estate. We have been enjoying the beach house with our family for a decade and have decided to open our special home for others to enjoy the peace and beauty of the Hood Canal. We hope you enjoy our private retreat for your special vacation.

          Why the Owner Chose Poulsbo:
          The Beach House is a rare no bank waterfront home with a sandy beach just steps from the house. Enjoy the majestic views from the snow capped Olympic Mountains to the glistening white of Mount Baker. Bald Eagles and Giant Ospreys soar above you and the evergreens cradle the blue waters of the Hood Canal. A true beach house with room for everyone!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Located just 15 minutes from the Nordic town of Poulsbo and 30 minutes from the Bainbridge Island Ferry terminal or Kingston Ferry Terminal the home offers all of the the amenities you need. The destination gourmet grocery store Central Market is 10 minutes away with a brand new Safeway just going in nearby. Shopping, movies, dining and recreation are within a 10 minute drive. You may choose to stay in and barbeque on the beach while basking in the warm sunsets. Relax on the deck of the boat house while the kids play in the sand or read for hours on the huge wrap around deck on the house while everyone finds their own fun from playing basketball or billiards, croquet on the sweeping lawn or board games in front of the wood stove. Your vacation will be as unique as you with many choices of fun activities.
