Why Callie Bendickson chose Belfair

This is our 'home away from home' where we love sitting around the fire on the patio, playing on the water and enjoying all the sea life of the beautiful Hood Canal. So many things to enjoy and never enough time to enjoy them all!

What makes this house unique

Beautiful views, comfortable home and perfect vacation spot for families.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Family Fun"

Our stay at this home was very relaxing. We went in the off season and still were able to find fun things to do. The home is very family friendly even for young children.

Wonderful Weekend on the Canal

  • 5 of 5

Callie was a great hostess. I had a lot of questions and she always returned my emails promptly. The house was stocked with everything we needed - including kayaks which was really fun. We saw otters that swam up to our kayaks - precious. The canal is beautiful as was the home. We BBQ'd out on the patio and enjoyed the view as we dined. The only suggestion I have is to provide more info on "things to do" We searched for a recommended hike and never could find it which was disappointing, but we were exploring so it wasn't a huge issue. Great stay Great Host - thanks Callie!!

Sorry to hear you couldn't find the hike nearby, we will do a better job on that next time. Cheers, Callie

Fabulous house with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for our annual girls (long) weekend. We fell in love with this home the moment we stepped foot in the door. The living room is all windows, which allows you to really take in the beautiful views! The beds are very comfortable and the house had everything we needed. The gas grill was used each night! We really appreciated the availability of wood for the patio fire pit. And, we played many of the games we found in the house! It was a unanimous decision to keep this place bookmarked for future trips. Thanks Callie for being so great to work with and for making our stay so memorable.

Beautiful Views and the Best Stocked House!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in and saw how open the lower living area was, the great views of the Hood Canal and how comfortable everything was, we knew it would be hard to leave. Myself and two girlfriends shared the home. I was lucky to have the downstairs (main level) bedroom with a slider that opened up to the patio and each morning I would wake up to a view of the water. The bed was heaven and literally one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in. I'm looking online for the pillows (oh my!). The house was stocked with more towels, linens, toilet paper, dish soap and laundry soap than I've ever seen in a home. The kitchen was roomy and the three of us were in there at the same time often as we prepared meals. Eating on the deck with a gentle breeze and the sounds of birds chirping in the trees was peaceful. When it was too cold to sit outside, I would sit in one of the leather rockers facing the big picture window and just watch the water. The upstairs has three bedrooms and a big rec room with a TV and a large sofa. The ladies I shared with both said their beds were comfortable. There isn't a dresser in the room with the bunk beds and in the other queen that overlooks the balcony, there isn't a closet. They both shared the downstairs bathroom and I used the bathroom closest to the master (not attached). The lines on my bed were so soft and the fluffy comforter kept me warm when the nights got chilly. The downstairs living area was remodeled in 2009 (based on the guest book), and was done very tastefully with a great beach decor. The upstairs could use a facelift (new carpet and ceiling tiles) and maybe a coat of light paint, but we spent most of our time downstairs and outside. Both ladies took a swim from the private dock, which has a grassy area, bathroom and picnic tables, as well as a boat launch. With advance notice you can arrange to get the key so you can drive down to the launch. There is plenty to do here; paddle, bike ride, hike or just relax. We were about 25 minutes from Safeway and with our adventures this wasn't a problem as we just stopped on our way in or out of town. We ate at Pat's Little Red Barn but the food wasn't very good. If you plan to kayak, check out the Tahuya River just at mile marker 14 on NE North Shore Rd. We paddled upstream with the incoming tide, it was peaceful and very pretty. We rode our bikes around Maggie Lake a few times to get in some hills. I will stay here again!

Awesome Trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled to the Beach House from Wisconsin with our two children and both sets of our parents. The house is located in a beautiful area and was a great place to stay for our week in NW Washington. The house was very nicely furnished and had plenty of space for the 8 of us to be comfortable all week. It has a great kitchen and lots of sleeping areas.

There are tons of things to do in the area, no matter where your interests lie. We got to do everything from watching orcas feed along the beach at Olympic National Park to having a snowball fight in July on Mount Rainier. It was a GREAT TRIP.

Communication with Callie was excellent and she was very helpful. I would not hesitate to go back to the Beach House again and would highly recommend it.

Nice weekend get-away.

  • 4 of 5

Our family enjoyed the home very much. It is a very nice space with everything we could possibly need. It feels peaceful and secluded and has a lovey view of the water. Not a criticism of the home, but there is not much near here. It is a pretty slow and long drive into Belfair, so do all your shopping before heading out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the very nice review Mary, we certainly appreciate it! We definitely like the quiet and peaceful life of the Hood Canal and use the same grocery strategy to limit drive time. Have a great summer and we'd welcome you back again any time. Cheers!

Lovely home, designed for relaxation and fun.

  • 5 of 5

If you and your family are looking for a beautiful escape, this is the place. The beach is easy to walk to and low tide is full of aquatic sea life. In the evening we sat outside and enjoyed watching the bats and stars. My family can be difficult to please but all of us throughly enjoyed our Hood Canal vacation. We will be back.
