About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, covered deck, fire pit (Sleeps 9)

Welcome to Shore Lane Beach House - your water front retreat!

Less than 2 hours from Seattle right on Puget Sound's Oakland Bay near Shelton, Washington. Experience waterfront living at its best. Enjoy the WHOLE HOUSE RENOVATION.


Escape to the beautifully decorated water front retreat. Shore Lane Beach House offers three bedrooms, one and 3/4 bathrooms on three levels totaling 1400 square feet. All rooms (except for one bedroom) have superb views of the water. Stay in touch if needed utilizing our high speed WiFi connection.

It is a great set up for adults and kids. Send the kids to the downstairs living area to play games or watch TV in the evenings while you enjoy the view and conversation on the main floor. Kids can sleep in the bunk room with their choice of upper bunk, lower bunk, or trundle.

On the main floor, step outside the French doors onto the covered deck right off the dining and living areas. Enjoy the water view while you prepare meals in the fully equipped kitchen featuring maple cabinets, oil rubbed bronze hardware, and granite countertops with slate backsplash.

Laundry area and brand new 3/4 bath with shower and 4 ft granite top vanity are on the main floor as well.

Later retreat to either of two upstairs bedrooms. Pick the waterside room with the king bed, cable TV and balcony overlooking the bay, or relax on the queen size bed in the tastefully appointed blue room.

You'll find a full bath with a bathtub/shower, tile tub surround and granite counter vanity on the third floor as well.


Shore Lane Beach House is located on the east side of Oakland Bay (which is just south of Hood Canal). Look across the water and see the city of Shelton - the lights are beautiful at night. Saunter down a few stairs to the beach which is great fun to beach comb any time of year. You'll see playful seals frolicking and salmon jumping in the water. At high tide, you can catch fish off the lower deck or simply cast from shore and reel them in! The water is surprisingly warm in summer. You can swim, or just sit with feet in the water, face in the sun for a truly Northwest Puget Sound experience. In winter it is just beautiful. You can even kayak on the calm waters of Oakland Bay. North Bay Kayak in Allyn will deliver!


Shelton and the surrounding areas offer plenty to do for everyone. The covered deck is the perfect spot to enjoy the winter waters - just bundle up if it's chilly. Or build a campfire right in the back yard and take in the view. Take a walk up the beach for an hour and you won't see any houses, just the wonders of nature. Experience fishing, wildlife viewing, or visit the Olympic National Rainforest Park.

Perhaps you'd like to catch a flick at the drive-in movie theater, try your luck at the Little Creek Casino, take the family out to eat, or enjoy Kneeland Park with its gigantic playground, grassy areas and beautiful picnic shelter.

Now, if GOLF is your game, you will not be disappointed. Truly test your skill at the prestigious Alderbrook, Gold Mountain, or Trophy Lake golf courses, all 20 to 35 miles from Shore Lane Beach House.

Don't miss the beautiful heated private community pool. It is open all summer and is free for guests of Shore Lane Beach House to use. It's just 2/3 mile away!

We are certain you will have a relaxing vacation and will want to return soon to Shore Lane Beach House!

Managed and owned by Picture Properties Vacation Rental Management, where prompt and courteous guest service is our priority.

About Picture Properties

Two sisters and their families purchased Shore Lane Beach House as a getaway and planned from the beginning to share it with vacationers like you. The experienced husbands remodeled it from top to bottom and the wives had a great time with the decorating. Everything is there for a memorable vacation - we invite you to enjoy it as we have.

Picture Properties purchased this house in 2007

What makes this house unique

What we enjoy most is the view from almost every place in the house and the beach. Between our two families, our kids range in age from 7 to adult and everyone has something fun to do there. Cable TV and WiFi keeps you connected, while the beach provides hours of fun exploring, wading, gathering clams and oysters, or our kids' favorite activity - throwing rocks in the Sound. Of course, the nearby heated swimming pool is a HUGE hit in the summer. We love that the house is remodeled completely and decorated nicely too - you really feel like you're on vacation, with all the amenities of home. Come experience the peacefulness of Shore Lane Beach House - you'll love it!

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the house in the evening. It took a bit to get it warmed up. The best part was waking up to the amazing view! We hung out on the lower deck and fished off the beach. There was plenty of space in the home and kitchen had everything we needed. Will definitely be staying here again!

Fun Multi-generational weekend by the water

  • 5 of 5

The main floor is designed to face the sound with windows making up the entire wall. My family couldn't get over the view! And all the natural light! We watched 3 seals frolicking in the bay and had a campfire. The kitchen was well stocked which was great because the house is 50 minutes from a grocery store and restaurants. We fixed our meals the entire weekend, enjoying coffee and tea in the morning on the deck and a glass of wine in the evening. Staying at a house instead of a rustic cabin is a joy because the house warmed up quickly when we arrived and our group could do activities without bothering each other. One time someone stayed up late watching a movie; another time a family member visiting for an afternoon, took a baby downstairs for a quiet, quick nap. The houses on both sides were vacant for our weekend so very private and quiet. We would definitely come back! One note-the fireplace is electric. It provides heat and ambiance but the front is not hot which is a nice safety feature especially if you have little ones.

Owner's Response: Great review! An accuracy note, we are only 12 miles from downtown Shelton, so a 15 to 20 minute drive max to Safeway, Walmart, Fred Meyer, and lots of restaurants. We are 45 to 50 min all the way to Olympia, so maybe that is what this guest was referring to? But you drive right through Shelton to get there. There is a also a convenience store just 3 miles from the house for last minute items. Let us know if you have any questions! Thanks! Debra, Picture Properties

Nice weekend get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

This home accommodated our group comfortably. The house was clean and nicely furnished. Since the weather was amazing over our stay, we took full advantage of the bay. The only suggestion is to consider sun shades over the balcony to provide a bit of shade when the sun is direct-- otherwise the views were amazing. Thank you again!

Shelton Beach Home July 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this well appointed home. The home was immaculate and we had everything we needed, including paper products and spices! Not all VRBO homes I've stayed at provide as much as this home had. We ran out of propane and Debra went out of her way to make sure it was promptly replaced. She was a treasure to work with. It was fascinating to watch the beach change from low tide to high tide. What a relaxing home for a get-a-way! I highly recommend this home if you are planning on visiting the Shelton area.
