Property description

Photo opportunities of majestic raptors your friends and family will envy. Don't miss out!

This waterfront home on Thorndyke Bay offers a private, tranquil setting surrounded by old growth trees, yet situated on a level open home site encircled by a lush, grassy lawn. Access the no bank waterfront by a nice wide path, perfect for launching your kayaks, canoes or a small rowboat for a day of Hood Canal exploration. Enjoy a day of hiking in the Olympic National Forest and return to the house for a great barbeque and relax outside on the huge backyard deck. Bring the croquet set and have a friendly competition with your family or friends.
This house has 4 bedrooms which sleep 8 people in twin beds and 4 people in queen beds. The decor is comfortable and inviting. Spend hours just reading and hanging out if that is the reason for your retreat. Motorcycle groups could easily use this as a home base for day trips on some of the most scenic destination highways in the Pacific Northwest. Day 1 you could follow northwest waterways from Port Townsend to Neah Bay or hit the winding hills up to Hurricane Ridge to take in the outstanding view of Vancouver Island and Victoria BC. Come back and have a hearty dinner and a game of poker at the huge wooden dining room table. Day 2 could take you south along Hood Canal to Shelton and back through the sleepy South Sound communities. For those of you who like quilting, scrapbooking, or other arts and crafts they too could be done on the huge wooden table. Spread out your supplies, without having to worry about anybody messing up your stuff. This home was originally set up to be used as a corporate retreat, and still could be.
The central location of this house makes it easy to get to all of the quaint towns on the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. If you are in town to attend a wedding in Port Gamble, or one of the many huge events held there each year this house is only minutes away. Port Gamble is home to The Medieval Festival, The Civil War Reenactment, The Ghost Conference and many more events throughout the year. (15 mins) Close also to the Norwegian themed town of Poulsbo which offers shopping, fine dining and is home to the famous Central Market with its locally grown organic meats, fish, produce and specialty foods. (20 mins) Pay a visit to Port Angeles and take in Hurricane Ridge in the Olympic National Forest, from one of their many different hiking trails. (1 hr) There are many attractions less than one hour away. Sequim annually hosts the lavender festival, or you can kayak to the lighthouse on the world famous Dungeness Spit and have a picnic before paddling back. (35 min) Port Townsend has many events all year long. One of the most popular is The Wooden Boat Festival. Port Townsend also offers many shops, galleries and restaurants. (30 mins) Port Ludlow has 3 public courses at their world class golfing facility which is just 15 minutes from the house. There are several extraordinary golf courses close to the house as well as 3 of the Northwest’s finest casinos. The Olympic Music Festival is about 20 minutes away. World renowned musicians play Chamber Music every Saturday and Sunday in the summer, as you picnic on a blanket on the lawn. There is also the opportunity to tour the 8 local wineries of the Olympic Peninsula. Each winery offers different varietals of wine and some have cider and each has their own unique ambiance.
Whatever the reason for your stay, I guarantee this home will measure up to all your needs with its fully stocked kitchen and comfy, cozy living spaces and huge outdoor deck with propane barbeque!
