Property description

The Inn at Arkada is located on the Puget Sound at Arcadia Point between Shelton and Olympia. This area of the Sound is noted for its safe, calm water which is ideal for kayaking, canoeing, fishing, and boating. A nearby boat ramp (within 100' of the property) is convenient for launching your boat. The panoramic view overlooks Mt. Rainier, Hope Island (a state park with hiking trails and clamming in season), wooded Squaxin Island, and Steamboat Island.

This comfortable family/pet friendly 3000 sq ft home features 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, open, spacious living and dining areas, large playroom, well equipped kitchen and large deck overlooking the active waterway. Two bedrooms are situated on the main level, one of which has a queen and twin bed, and the other has one queen and one double bed. Each bedroom has a full bathroom. The third bedroom, with a queen bed, is located on the upper level. The upper level also features bunk beds, a sleeper sofa, a bathroom and a large play area with ping pong.

The property overlooks a working waterway with tug and barge traffic and shellfish scows. The waters abound with aquatic sea life and birds. Eagles and deer are frequent visitors. The beautiful private beach, low bank waterfront, calm water, amazing 180 degree view, comfortable living, and convenient location make the Inn at Arkada a very special place.

Location

Special Local Events:

A special yearly event is the Squaxin Island Tribe’s Blessing of the First Salmon which is held on the beach right next door. This includes a ceremony followed by a traditional salmon, clam, oyster, and Indian fry bread feast to which the public is invited. This takes place in August before the Indian fishing season. During the Tribal fishing season, nets teeming with salmon are pulled onto the beach in front of the bulkhead. The Tribal Canoe Journey also takes place in August. Colorful Tribal canoes are launched from the adjacent beach, where local tribes begin their journey. Oysterfest in nearby Shelton is held in October. This event includes an international oyster shucking contest, great food, and entertainment.

Other year round nearby entertainment includes gaming and entertainment at Little Creek Casino and golfing at the brand new Salish Cliffs 18 hole course. Enjoy wine tasting at Walter Dacon Winery or purchase fresh local shell fish at Taylor Shellfish Retail Store, all just a few miles away. Boaters can cruise to nearby Percival Landing in Olympia for shopping and dining. Arcadia has become a popular spot for Kayakers who paddle Hammersley Inlet into Shelton on the incoming tide and back to Arcadia on the outgoing tide. Hope Island State Park, just across the bay, is another favorite destination with hiking trails and clamming in season.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Arcadia Point (aka "the Bay") is where our family has come to vacation and play for generations. While working, we enjoyed vacation homes here. After retirement, many moved here. We love this part of the lower sound so much that family members own 7 of the waterfront homes here! We swim, we ski and tube, we fish, we boat, canoe and kayak, we look for sea glass and play on the beach here. We enjoy the ever changing view, the sea animals and birds and the safe, calm water.

Why the Owner Chose Shelton, WA, USA:
When 30 SE came up for sale we bought it and turned it into the Inn at Arkada. It is a rare and unique property, with a very low bank, spectacular 180 degree view, and only a few short steps to the water and private beach. When our own home is overflowing with family, we enjoy taking advantage of the additional space, privacy and fun the Inn has to offer.
