The incredible views from this lovely custom built, waterfront home will take your breath away. The house offers a secluded setting with a green belt on one side and a house set back from view on the other. No need for window coverings to block the view--it is totally private. If you prefer a dark room in which to sleep bring your sleep eye covers. We enjoy being awakened by a gorgeous sunrise. Sit in the solarium and watch the eagles fly right overhead or fish in the water below you.

Enjoy unobstructed views of Puget Sound, the Cascade mountains and Mt. Baker from virtually every room in the house. Watch the ever changing activity of cruise ships, sailboats, tankers or a nuclear submarine, from the large deck or our cozy solarium. The professionally landscaped yard is designed for privacy and easy maintenance and features a tranquil pond and natural woodland setting. Watch the deer and raccoons drink from the pond and wander through the yard any given day.

The fully equipped kitchen has a gas range, double ovens and Subzero refrigerator (a smaller extra refrigerator is in the laundry room) and a view that makes cooking a real pleasure. Or you can pull up a bar stool to the eating counter and grab a quick snack. Fine dining is minutes away if you aren't in the mood for cooking.

The living room has a stone wall with a gas fireplace. Snuggle up on the comfy sofas (one converts to queen size bed) in front of the fireplace and enjoy great conversation, a good book or a glass of wine. Or, simply admire the beauty of the view.

The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet, a king sized bed and sliding glass doors that open to the deck. Lie in bed and watch the sun rise or the cruise ships heading back to port. Master bath has double vanity and lots of storage space.

One bedroom has queen sized bed and a garden view. The other bedroom is very large, with enough extra room for two more people. Bring sleeping bags for the kids. Bedroom doors open to the deck. Relax with a cup of coffee at the bistro table with four chairs and enjoy the marvelous water and mountain views.

A bonus room and office upstairs has a queen as well as a full size convertible sofa bed. Spectacular views from the office.

The house is beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated to make your stay feel extra special and comfortable.

The soft breezes from the water below make outdoor dining, after Grilling on our Weber Gas grill, on the table for six comfortable even on a hot day a real treat.

Four fold-up lounging deck chairs are also provided. Try to spot the seals on the rocks below with the telescope provided or just marvel at the incredible view.

From Port Ludlow you can hop a ferry to Seattle and tour the waterfront and famous Pike Place Market or drive about an hour to Port Angeles and take the ferry to Victoria and spend the day in this charming city with a visit to the world famous Butchart Gardens. Also Whidbey Island, Hurricane Ridge, the rain forest, Poulsbo, Sequim and the lavendar festival and Port Gamble are great trips.

Historic Port Townsend is about 20 minutes away with antique shops, many talented artists offering their wares and lots of charming shops. Farmer's Markets are held every Saturday during the spring and summer. Visit Bremerton and tour the naval shipyards or the Undersea Naval Museum in Keyport.

There are many options if you are adventurous. Or, you may want to stay close by and hike the trails, walk to the marina and look at the boats or stop by the Inn and have a glass of wine or dinner. There is a bar and a large covered porch overlooking the marina.

This lovely home is a perfect place for a romantic get-away, retreat, honeymoon or family gathering. Thinking about moving to the area? Short- or long-term rentals available. Just give us a call. There is no telephone.

Security/damage deposit along with first payment is due within 5 business days of booking reservations. Second payment is due 60 days prior to arrival. Final payment is due 30 days prior to arrival. If arrival is under 30 days full payment is due within 5 business days.

Pets may be permitted under certain circumstances. A $20 per stay fee plus a $100 refundable deposit is required.

Owner info

About the owner: I am a retired legal assistant and my husband is a retired real estate project manager.

Why the Owner Chose Port Ludlow:
Our family owns a condo at the resort a short distance away so the area was familiar to us. A dear friend previously owned the home and we were thrilled when it came on the market and snatched it right up. Living in the Seattle area makes for a quick weekend get-away or a long-term vacation spot. We love it here!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The first time we walked into the house we were captivated by the incredible views. We have complete privacy and no need for curtains or blinds to block the view. Bald Eagles nest in trees close by the house so they are constantly flying overhead or fishing in the water below. Deer wander through the yard daily and there is abundant bird life.
