"I recently stayed on a Saturday night while attending the OysterFest in nearby Shelton. The suite was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed (and then some). While there is a highway nearby it wasn't a problem for us and we both slept very well in the king bed. The view from the suite is fantastic and the space overall felt more like a house than a rental unit.
The town of Allyn has more to offer than we had anticipated. There are interesting shops and restaurants within walking distance - in addition to the ice cream shop on the ground floor. This is a great place for a family since you can put the kids on the hideabed in the living room. The fireplace works very well and would keep you toasty on a blustery winter night.
It's an easy getaway from Seattle but you feel like you're far, far away.
I'd love to return to this property!"

"We rented this home for a family vacation (8 adults, 2 children and 1 newborn) and it accommodated us all so well. The views were spectacular.... 2 submarines, a small pod of whales, eagles, deer in the backyard... The kitchen has almost everything you can think of to accommodate a large family. The community pool was fabulous! Lots and lots of activities for the kids within a 20 to 30 minute drive (Fort Flagler, Fort Warden, Port Townsend, Port Townsend Glass Beach, etc.). The backyard and property is landscaped beautifully and invites lots of wildlife (birds, hummingbirds, squirrels, chipmunks, etc.). Although not turned on when we arrived, the AC kept the house cool despite the exceptionally warm summer heat. Plenty of hot water for showers. We spent much of our time in the gorgeous sun room and on the back patio. Great location for a family get away. I am sure the TV Works, but we did not turn it on once--- sign of a fantastic family vacay!"

"The property was beautiful and was perfect for our families needs. I did like the TV being in the area far away from where us adults could visit. Gave the young people a little separate area of their own and gave us peace and quiet. Enjoyed the amazing view. Thank you for your helpful hints to enjoy the area."

"With temperatures in the 90’s it seemed like a prefect weekend to head to Hood Canal. Starfish Studio Cottage was perfect. The cabin’s interior is dark because of the paneling but once the many wonderful windows are thrown open it lightens right up. We never closed them, not even during a stormy (lighting/thunder) day or in the evenings. (There were no mosquitoes) If you are the type that needs to take a break from heat the interior was always pleasantly cool. The house is situated so that our north deck with table and chairs had sun from early morning until 5 pm. For the two of us, there was plenty of room to leave the Murphy Bed down and still easily move around the cottage. The canal is just 6-8 steps down a concert stairway and was warm enough for swimming and there are oysters everywhere for the picking. During our slack tide times you do notice highway noise and the seals can make some pretty rude sounds during the night. Our first night we saw a 6 otters at play on the up turned row boat float and the highest number of seals out on the submerged float numbered 13! Our neighbors were great. One recommended the burgers at the Eagle Creek Saloon and the other recommend the hike and swim at the falls in Dosewallipis State park. For particular sleepers note that Suzanne uses feather pillows which can be squishy and the mattress is on the softer side. Kitchen was great, big sink, good stove and good sized fridge. There is a full dry spice rack, some basics: corn oil, vinegar etc in the cupboard and a good sharp knife. Bigger coffee cups would be a plus! Thanks Suzanne!"
