About the Property

House 2 Bedrooms 1 Bath 2 Futons Sleeps 6 Laundry Deck Yard BBQ Extra Parking

Treat yourself to the luxury of a stand-alone house in a quiet, private forest minutes from everything in Port Townsend. The 7th night is free when you book a week with our Great Weekly Rate or stay 2 weeks and get 3 nights for free. Privacy and proximity are the best combination for a happy visit here. Couples will enjoy relaxing in a peaceful environment in a retreat-like setting less than 4 miles from historic downtown Port Townsend. This newer home is a clean and modern, single-level 900 sq. ft. property equipped with many amenities and plenty of outdoor space to give you comfort and convenience. The Guest Nest rests on 5 acres. No crowds, noisy nights or parking problems like in town. During festival weeks, you're close to the action but then you can escape to the quiet of the nest at night. Families will love our private outdoor area for meals and gatherings, a safe place for children to play and plenty of easy visitor parking. Read on the deck, walk the forest trails, watch streaming TV or fire up the grill. Have a restful night's sleep and plenty of room for family nights in. Drive anywhere in town in minutes by car, plus you can bike or walk from this house to the waterfront in less than 2 miles on the nearby Larry Scott Trail. Everything you need is 5-10 minutes away, including the beach, San Juan Islands whale watching and fishing tours, Fort Worden, restaurants, shops, parks, galleries, golf, wineries, grocery stores, The Farmer's Market and the ferry to Whidbey Island.

The Guest Nest has high-speed internet and strong cell phone coverage, plus amenities that include a private deck and lawn area with propane BBQ. Table seating for up to 14 outside is available for gatherings, plus another 4-6 inside. There is room to park your boat; bring your jet skis or paddle boards; park your large RV while you stay in the house; and you can bring bikes or rent them in town. You can bike or run safely right from the Guest Nest on the Larry Scott Trail for up to 10 miles. It's less than 2 miles to the waterfront; 4 miles to Hudson Point or Chetzemoka Park; or you can go through farm country south of Port Townsend all the way on the trail down to the beach at Discovery Bay.

Inside the Guest Nest you will find conveniences such as a full-size kitchen with dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, stove/oven, microwave, crock pot and plenty of dishes, pots, pans and silverware to entertain family and friends. Two cozy bedrooms with forest views will welcome you at the end of a long day of recreation. One has a Queen-Size bed and convertible single futon sofabed; the other has a Full-Size log bed. The living room has a 42” HDTV with Apple TV streaming apps, Netflix, Hulu, DVD player with 125 movies, plus books and board games.

The house is adjacent to the road to Sequim, Port Angeles, Lake Crescent, Forks, Olympic National Park, Neah Bay, The Rain Forest and Washington's wild West Coast. Port Townsend is a great starting point to explore the entire Olympic Peninsula loop via Highway 101.

Our town hosts dozens of popular festivals throughout the year and offers a variety of recreational fun such as boating, kayaking, paddle boarding, horseback riding, biking, sailing, fishing and crabbing. Book early if you're coming for a holiday, wedding or something like The Lavender Festival, The Wooden Boat Festival, The Film Festival or PT's quirky Kinetic Skulpture Race or Strange Brewfest events.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: The hosts, Bill & Lisa, have worked in the hospitality business for 15 years.

Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend, WA, USA:
There is so much to do in Port Townsend and The Olympic National Park, including hiking, beach combing, festivals, golf, wineries, art galleries, antique shops and craft beer pubs. Port Townsend hosts the famous Wooden Boat Festival, The Jazz Festival and the quirky Kinetic Festival. Our town is a great place for relaxing, enjoying fine restaurants or beach walking. The house is 10-15 minutes away from Fort Worden, which is popular with visitors because of the beach. Port Townsend is part of the Olympic Rain Shadow/Banana Belt. Cities inside this area enjoy more sunshine and less rain than the rest of the Northwest. And Port Townsend is the perfect home base to enjoy day trips to the San Juan Islands, Sequin, Olympic National Park, the Hoh Rain Forest and Forks.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Privacy. Beautiful wooded setting. Quiet nights. Ideal for families, couples, girls getaways or family gatherings. Safe dedicated children's play area. Room for family meals. Extensive outdoor space including meal seating for 14 outdoors plus another 6-8 indoors. BBQ, deck and private yard. Easy visitor parking. Room to bring your motor home, bike trailer or boat. Experienced hosts managing one of Port Townsend's highest-rated Homeaway properties listed on VRBO/Homeaway since 2009.
