Poulsbo house description

Luxury and fun in the trees on 10 heavily wooded, verdantly lush acres! Enjoy this beautifully decorated 2 bedroom, 1 bath guest house featuring a private entrance, luxury linens, outdoor recreation, hiking trails, a 92-inch projection TV with surround sound, and all of the peace and quiet you could ask for-- all just 20 minutes from the Bainbridge Island ferry.

In addition to the 2 bedrooms, there is a queen-size air mattress available and plenty of space in the living room for it. Great for kids! Looking for indoor activities? There are 70 DVD's to choose from (kid's titles and popular hits), an expansive game and puzzle closet, and a sizable library of books (including kid's titles). Outdoor activities? Explore the 10 acre property and pick blackberries, in season. If you're interested in leaving the property, there are beach toys (buckets, shovels, sand toys, boats, trucks), beach chairs, beach blankets and towels, a rolling cooler and noodles for floating.

Guests have private parking and a private entrance to the guest house. There are 2 private upstairs decks available, a propane grill, a fire pit for roasting s'mores, and multiple roughed out and short hiking trails.

The home is located just 20 minutes from the Bainbridge Island ferry, between Suquamish and Kingston, across from Miller Bay, very near Chief Sealth's grave. The Clearwater Casino is less than 4 miles, Point No Point beach is less than 12 miles, and wonderful shopping and dining are available in both Winslow and Poulsbo. 90 minutes from Olympic National Park, so day trips are easy!

Rent kayaks, get pampered with a spa day, enjoy the great outdoors or just curl up with a good book and relax!

Please note that the owners live on the property and have 3 very friendly dogs which may be out on the property (supervised) during your visit-- but would never be in your home. The guest house and main house are connected via an upstairs glass corridor-- but share no common walls. The doors at either end of this corridor have been soundproofed to ensure your stay is quiet and dead-bolt locked to ensure your privacy.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: We are recent transplants to Washington state and are excited to open our home to those who enjoy travel and adventure as much as we do. We will do everything we can to make your stay comfortable and fun and can provide great recommendations on dining, entertainment and outdoor activities.

              Why the Owner Chose Poulsbo:
              Back home in Colorado, we were fortunate enough to live on property that backed to a national forest. When we chose to relocate to Seattle, we knew we wanted a rural property that had access to lots of local amenities. The moment we drove up the long, verdantly green corridor of the driveway and saw the home, we knew it had to be ours. The guest house was a huge bonus for us as we enjoy hosting friends and family when they visit-- and we immediately saw the opportunity to use it as a vacation rental spot. In a very short time, the Fun House in the Trees became a very special spot for us and our four-legged kids.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We've chosen not to cover most of the windows in the main house (and the main living areas of the guest house) because the overwhelming feeling of being in a tree house gives us such peace. The 10 acres are perfect for hiking our dogs, blackberry-picking, and wildlife viewing. And who doesn't love making s'mores around a firepit?
