This is our custom new home completed in 2011. It is beach life at its best! There are 2 bedrooms/2 baths, and an open kitchen/dining/living room. The house sleeps 6. The master bedroom has a connected bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and double/twin bunk bed. There is wireless internet if you must be connected.
You are on the beach! The Dungeness lighthouse is right out front. Spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains are on the other side. It is a perfect spot for beach combing, bird watching or curling up with a good book.
We built this house because of our love of the water. Windsurfing and kayaking are two of our favorite activities. It is ideal for both. Bring your gear and have fun! The Dungeness valley is also great for cycling with the Olympic Discovery trail stretching from Sequim Bay to Port Angeles. What ever gear you bring, will be secure in the garage that the house sits on top of. There is a second garage door leading to the beach for easy gear access!
It's your vacation. Do as much or a little as you like. Inside, the house is a quiet, comfortable place to just 'be'. There is a wood stove that increases the cozy factor on cool winter days! Outside is what you make of it. The deck is a great place for bird watching during the day or star gazing at night.
Dungeness Spit is the longest sand spit in the US and a National Wildlife Refuge. It is about a 10 mile round trip hike from the base of the spit to the lighthouse and back. Hiking on a low tide is best. The trail head is less than a 10 minute drive from the house. If you're looking for more ambitious hiking adventures, Olympic National Park beckons. Within an hour you could be at Deer Park or Hurricane Ridge, on trails leading through some of the most spectacular scenery on Earth, really! Hurricane Ridge also has downhill and cross country skiing as well as snow shoeing in the winter.
