The Beach House is part of a 13-acre compound with over 350' of waterfront, which includes a century old home, one of the original houses on Fox Island. Stroll through the lovely cottage gardens, which were featured on both the Gig Harbor and Fox Island Garden Tours.
The Beach House is 10 miles from Gig Harbor with all it has to offer ... an authentic, working fishing village with restaurants, art galleries, museums, movies, parks, shopping, etc. It is 13 miles from Tacoma, WA with its new LeMay Car Museum, more restaurants, etc.
Other Activities at the Beach House: Tennis, Croquet, Hiking Beach combing, Boating, Kayaking, if you bring your own boats
Golf: The Madrona Links Golf Course is a public golf course within 12 miles of the Beach House. The Chambers Bay Golf Course is further, but worth the drive because it hosted the 2015 US Open Tournament and it is open to the public.
Ski: Skiing at Crystal Mountain, 'Washington's largest Ski Area' near Mt. Ranier, is only 85 miles from the Beach House. It has a new Gondola to take you to 7,000' where there is a restaraunt with magnificent views of Mt. Rainier at 14,410'
There is more skiing at Snoqualamie Pass and at White Pass.

About the owner: The picture is of Sue and Bill in their Kitchen at Christmas time. Sue is a retired Tennis Pro who now enjoys gardening and sharing her beautiful flower gardens with others. Her gardens were on the Gig Harbor Garden Tour in 2004. When they lived in Connecticut, Sue ran a successful B&B for many years. Bill owns a small business and enjoys landscaping the 13 acres behind their house. When he is not doing those activities, he can be found crabbing in front of their house. He loves sharing with guests the many nearby destinations where they can experience the incredible beauty of the Pacific NW.
Why the Owner Chose Fox Island, WA, USA:
We own the Beach House next door to the house we live in, because we wanted to protect our view of Mt. Rainier and because we enjoy sharing the view and the beach with others ... particularly new visitors to the Pacific NW. They cannot believe what a beautiful place we live and the abundance of wildlife that surrounds us.
