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
We had the most relaxing, peaceful stay at the Hood Canal cottage. My husband and I invited our parents and siblings to join us for a 5 night stay and the house was perfectly situated and set up for a week of fun, food and quality time with family. There were so many options of where to hang out (on the balcony, in the big living room, around the kitchen etc) that it was very conducive to a big group or family (especially for times when others want to get some alone time or quiet time, there are plenty of places to hang out). You can hang out in the yard, on the porch or on the beach – so many fantastic options. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a gorgeous, upscale home to get some much needed R&R or vacation time with family and friends. The kitchen is all set up with everything you need to cook all sorts of meals. Ernie was very communicative and helpful and the house looked exactly as pictured. Do yourself a favor and book this stunning home.
wonderful family retreat
Our family had a wonderful time reconnecting here for a week. We had ages 5 to 85 and all were entertained. The beach front access and beach are spectacular. We rented kyaks (they can deliver them to the property) and enjoyed the spectacular water. We enjoyed fires both on the beach and in the back. The house was clean and clutter free as the pictures advertised. We had no problems. Pack your soaps and shampoo's we had forgot ours and didn't realize none would be supplied. Plenty of linens on property! It's a beautiful place, very serene. Thank you Ernie!
We rented this property with our family for our daughters wedding in Port Townsend. It is a beautiful house. Very accommodating for a lot of people. We had a lot of fun. One of the best houses we have rented on VRBO.
Perfect Wedding Weekend Spot
This lovely home is a short trip to Port Gamble (5-7 minutes) where we celebrated our daughter's wedding. With everyone coming from somewhere else, this big house allowed us to host immediate family and extended family. Friends and family also joined us to share meals and enjoy unhurried conversation, walks on the beach, and even a few games of catch on the lawn. The beds were very comfortable, lots of fluffy white towels, plenty of dinnerware, glassware, and flatware for a crowd. The large open plan living room and kitchen area was perfect for spending time with everyone. With a "no shoes" policy in the house, I suggest bringing or providing slippers with grippy soles for navigating the hardwood stairs. Highly recommend this property!
Wonderful Family Get Together
Our family was able to come in from all over the country for a one week get together. The home was very comfortable with plenty of room. Enjoyed our privacy as well as two trips to Seattle fro Bainbridge, excellent food in Poulsbo and a quick stop at the casino. Decent hiking nearby.
So nice we visited twice
Our quilting group returned to the Grand Cottage for our annual retreat and again had a wonderful time. We do a lot of cooking and love the well-stocked and functional kitchen (the knives are probably ready for a sharpening, according to our chef). The Bluetooth worked great for music and movies. We love the proximity to Port Gamble and Poulsbo. Thanks again!
