(Free 2 kayaks to use)-The perfect waterfront home on Hood Canal awaits your visit. You will be blown away by the view you'll see of the beautiful canal through floor to ceiling windows when you walk in the front door and look past the kitchen to the living room and the water beyond. Come, sit by the fireplace and just relax, while enjoying watching eagles fly by or sea lions and seals and an occasional whale frolic in the water. Or perhaps you’d rather set out to scuba dive for octopus just 150 yards from the house, swim, hike, mountain bike, stroll the beach, fish, and crabbing just in front of the house. At the end of your day, grab some marshmallows and roast them in our fire pit, just a couple feet from the edge of the water and also enjoying a beautiful sunset while cozying up to the fire.
The kitchen includes a breakfast bar and dining area. It opens into the dining room and living room where we promise you will never get tired of the incredible view of the water. Sunrises are gorgeous and sitting out on one of the two oversized decks at night looking at the full moon’s reflection on the water is a great way to relax at the end of your day.
The living room has a fireplace and plenty of space for family gatherings and activities. Downstairs in the first floor is a ping pong table, air hockey, 2 person shooting basketball game, Gamecube, darts, and kids can have their own space for games, and plenty of room to store your fishing poles, crab trap or treasures you find on the beach.
Our kitchen is fully stocked and our dining area with a table that seats six, or enjoy eating outside on
one of our two decks while enjoying the view.
If you prefer to not cook, The Halfway House nearby is famous for excellent home cooking and homemade pies. Esquire magazine recently chose the nearby Geoduck Restaurant and Tavern #2 for “Best Bar in America,” and Pleasant Harbor Marina, just up the road, offers superb pizza and sandwiches.
The home offers four bedrooms, two upstairs and one on the main floor, and two full baths. One bedroom has a Queen-sized bed with night tables, a dresser and closet. Another has two bunk beds and a closet, the third has a queen bed and armoire, the fourth bedroom has a full size bed.
Bring your fishing poles and check out the many rivers that flow into Hood Canal.
Nearby Dosewallips State Park, with acres of clams and oysters and geoduck, is also a great place to beach comb at low tide. Brinnon is a hiker’s paradise and there are spectacular trails and breathtaking waterfalls in Brinnon or in the nearby Olympic National Park. Or check out the great mountain biking trails. Divers can see several species of rockfish, octopus and all sorts of crabs in one of the best diving locations in the Northwest, and diving gear can be rented close by. A little further down the road is Mount Walker. A short drive up the mountain at the scenic view area, you will be blown away by the spectacular views of the Olympic Mountain range and turn your head back east and see the City of Seattle skyline. According to our guests, our house on the edge of the Olympic National Park is an ideal location as a base for their adventures to explore the park. Olympic National Park covers 922,651 acres of three distinct habitat zones, the alpine region, the coastline and the temperate rain forest. At 1,441 square miles, the park is larger than Rhode Island(1,214 square miles). In 1976, the park was named an International Biosphere Reserve by United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, the park was made a World Heritage Site by the World Heritage Convention.

Great location right on the water.
We stayed four nights and never tired of the view. We enjoyed using the kayaks and fire pit and in the evenings enjoyed viewing the extensive DVD movie selection. Many great day hikes were available a very short drive away. We definitely hope to return in the future...
Great Family Space!
Lots of room with lots of activities with a gorgeous view! Our family of 5 (includes three young adult kids) found the perfect place to stay to do our Olympic National Park exploring. We awoke to resident eagles, which included an adolescent eagle, swirling and swooping into the Hood Canal literally right in front of the house, with a couple of ravens trying to steal the fish right out from the eagles' talons. What a sight! So many things to do right at the house, with indoor activities such as ping pong & hoops, and outdoor (which is the best), like kayaking, sitting around a campfire or sitting on either of the two decks (my favorite was the really large lower deck that had the pine tree growing up in the middle of it, with the lower branches cut off so it was a pine tree canopy!), amazing to watch the resident eagles! There was even an otter in the Canal that was so cute! Everything was clean, even though there was a miscommunication between the owner and the cleaning crew, that the cleaning crew didn't know they needed to be there to get it ready for us. We arrived and it hadn't been cleaned, but the owner was right on it and got them there quickly; we waited by relaxing on the deck while two of the kids kayaked, during the cleaning. The lady in charge had two helpers with her, so it was done quickly and efficiently. She even asked me to walk around to make sure it was done to my liking. Perfect. The owner was very apologetic, and I know these things happen; we're all human, after all. Compensation was offered by the owner, which we greatly appreciated. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Of the four places we stayed on our trip to Washington, my kids stated that this one was their favorite.
A beautiful home in a beautiful setting.
This was our second time staying here. We love it. Maybe a yearly tradition.
Great views. A lot to do. Hiking kayaking clamming crabbing fishing. Will definitely return
All the amenities. Went as good as it could
This property has many bonuses with great views.
Peaceful, serene, comfortable, and fun - everything we were looking for. The bonus of the games, kayaks, and private beach right there supplied some added laughs that we will all remember. Our family genuinely enjoyed every minute of our time at the house - certainly a memorable getaway!
