We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a small, family cabin that is well-used in the sense that it feels like walking into Grandma and Grandpa's home. We loved this place! It's not fancy, but it's clean, comfortable, in a very quiet area, and perfectly situated to watch beautiful sunsets and storms on the bay. Family photos displayed throughout provide an extra touch of hominess. You can just tell that this place is used by people who love it.

Gretchen Whitney’s vacation home

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Ms Whitney's house. The area was quiet and restful. We had the chance to watch the deer and many sea birds as well to walk the beach when the tide was out. It was close to places to eat and visit. Only draw back was the mud we had to cross to get to the beach.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at the cozy little comfy house. Bay right in front of house. Almost anything that you might need in the house. Large livingroom, great Wifi. Comfy deck to enjoy. Fire pit on beach to enjoy and large fireplace in livingroom when fires are permitted. Can't say enough about this place. You just feel at home here. Loved it and plan to come back again. Gretchen (the owner) was easy to contact and very helpful with any questions.

Great cabin on the bay

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay was wonderful. Location on the west side of the island could not have been more perfect. Great crabbing when tide is out. Owners of the cottage are very gracious. We had the opportunity to meet with one of the owners and discuss some of the history of the cottage and the location. We were able to meet with the next door family. Along with being very friendly, they were also very helpful with our crabbing endeavors.

Will stay again.

Great place for a family with a pet.

  • 5 of 5

Han's Place is an affordable getaway close to Seattle with everything you need to enjoy the beach with your kids and pets; for us, that's our 13 and 9 years old daughter and son and our Brittany spaniel. It's a comfortable cottage bursting with memories of invaluable family time throughout the many years it's been in Gretchen's family. Thanks for sharing it with us.
