About Ernie Large'

We love Kitsap Peninsula.

Great place to live

and to vacation.

Very close proximity

to Seattle & Sea Tac Airport.

Ernie Large' purchased this house in 2008

Why Ernie Large' chose Poulsbo

We moved from the Seattle area to Poulsbo / Kitsap Peninsula in 1998, bought this amazing five acre estate, waterfront property in 2005, built and completed this lovely, custom home in 2008. It was our primary residence for seven years before we offered it as our newest Vacation Rental, Estate Home & Beach property last Summer, 2015. My only regret is that we didn't move out here and build our dream home years earlier. It truly depicts this wonderful part of the country, with everything at your fingertips, while having the beautiful city of Seattle and the Puget Sound with all of its amenities within a short, relaxing Ferry ride or drive.

What makes this house unique

The Hood Canal Recreation Area is one of the most unique bodies of water in the United States. You will experience some of the most breathtaking views of Mountains, Forestland, Waterfowl, Sea life, and topography anywhere in the country. One of our most enjoyable benefits, is the abundance of fishing, shellfish, crabbing, and overall beach combing this unique area provides. But most of all, just the ability to relax, and take in all of this from one of the many covered porches in the Hood Canal Grand Cottage, with a cup of fresh roasted coffee, our one of your favorite spirits. The layout of this lovely home's gathering areas, brings families together and allows them to experience a togetherness we all need more of in today's busy times.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family (12 adults plus a toddler and a baby) had a wonderful week-long vacation at the Hood Canal Grand Cottage. The house was spacious, luxurious, comfortable and made it easy to spend time all together for meals and games, but also had lots of spaces for quiet alone reading time or for smaller groups. The view is beautiful. The upper and lower porches facing the water were favorite spots for reading, napping and talking. We enjoyed croquet, bocce ball and whiffle ball games and time on the beach. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was spacious and well equipped. We were there over July 4th and enjoyed our own firework show, and the show supplied by a nearby neighbor. The primary bedrooms and the upstairs entertainment room are all very well protected from the noise our two grandchildren made in the downstairs living room early in the morning while others were sleeping. Most of us took the ferry to Seattle (a 20-30 minute drive from the house) and we had a very nice day exploring the city. Groceries are readily available within about 15 minutes of the house. The house was very clean when we arrived and everything was in working order. I highly recommend the house for family gatherings. Ernie - thank you for everything!

Beautiful home for our women's group

  • 5 of 5

We are twelve women who have been gathering annually for more than 15 years. We do a lot of quilting and a lot of cooking - some of us barely make it out of our pajamas, so we really put a house through its paces. The Grand Cottage was a lovely place to spend a long weekend, and Ernie was very responsive to a couple small issues and questions we had. Kitchen well stocked, beds comfy, plenty of bathrooms and we love the proximity to Port Gamble and Poulsbo.

Beautiful property, lovely views, amazing host

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting homes in this area for 10 years and this is right at the top on quality. Super thoughtful accommodation, with all the elegant but comfortable seating, great beds, spacious kitchen, outdoor furniture etc. Magnificent views, and the decks are perfect for taking them in. Love the multiple mini fridges. Beautifully clean, well equipped kitchen. Wifi was excellent even for demanding teenagers. We all loved the floors as well - beautiful and practical. Ernie was the best of hosts--very well organized, all logistics perfect, and we always knew we could contact him any time (though we had no problems at all). He even went so far as to give the property a new ping pong table, when I told him how fond my Dad is of playing. We'll be back...

Lovely, comfortable and warm

  • 5 of 5

We had 16 people in my husband’s family come together over the New Year and it was perfect. We used the fire pits at the beach and in the backyard almost every night and just lazed by the fireplaces playing board games and watching football all day. Everyone had space and everyone had a great time. Kids had their own space to hang out and play. We would go again!

Magnificant Property and Amenities for our Family Thanksgiving Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 14 from Minneapolis, Indianapolis, and Seattle gathered for a week at this beautiful Hood Canal Grand Cottage for our Thanksgiving Vacation 2017. We were all very comfortable in our spacious bedrooms, that each had a private bathroom. The optional studio came in handy for us also. The home is an impeccable retreat set next to giant evergreens. It was built with beautiful crown moldings, furnishings, fireplaces in each room, a spacious chefs kitchen, two family rooms, and a den. We were so pleased with the specatular views of Hood Canal from the veranda and upper decks that sweep the entire front of the home. The private beach is close by and offers additional enjoyment of the property, as does the spacious front and back yard lawns for outdoor play. We had plenty of kitchen space to make two turkeys on Thanksgiving, with all the yummy sides. This place is truly a Hood Canal hidden gem, with access to the ferry systems to Seattle for day trips. The quaint Scandinavian town of Poulso is just a few minutes down the road, that even hosts a Walmart. I am so thankful we found this place. Fun Fact: "The Hood Canal Bridge is the longest floating bridge in the world located in a saltwater basin, and the third longest floating bridge overall." This incredible bridge can be seen from all the water facing bedrooms, which each have built-in reading nooks. I can't think of a better view to enjoy a cup of coffee in the mornings or toasting with a glass of wine, after a day of hunting for seashells. Thank you Ernie and Kim, Hood Canal Cottage property owners, for making us feel at home in their gorgeous home, and being available for any questions we had during our stay.
