Overview

About the property

Hood Canal Waterfront view of Hood Canal, Dabob Bay, Mt Rainier, and Mt Baker.

This Hood Canal vacation rental is a wonder to behold: Olympic National Park at your back door, and the Dosewallips Wildlife Estuary right in front. You'll see many birds native to the Pacific Northwest including bald and golden eagles, heron, geese, ducks and more. Orca whales, seals with their pups and river otter frequent the waters in front of you and from time to time the Brinnon Elk herd may visit the yard.

A new six-person jetted spa overlooking the water allows you to take it all in while relaxing in warmth and comfort. Large upper and lower decks provide a sweeping view of Hood Canal, Dabob Bay, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker. Private stairs to the beach with a large dock allow you to play, swim, fish or take the provided canoe out for a ride. At low tide, approximately 29 acres of pristine tide-lands.

Just a short walk down the road is the famous Geoduck Restaurant Lounge, voted #2 'Best Bars in the U.S.' by Esquire Magazine.

The just-remodeled home boasts an amazing 2,830 square feet of beautifully appointed living that can comfortably sleep up to 12 guests. The master bedroom stretches across the entire top floor of the home in a loft style. Additionally, we have outfitted the main floor with an upgraded queen-size sleeper sofa, and we offer a folding-style crib for those traveling with little ones.

We also offer a second waterfront 5 bedroom home in Brinnon. That new home is called Seal Rock and is 3 miles away from Nature's Paradise. The home sleeps 14 people comfortably in beds and is 3080 square feet. The dining room table seats 14 with 18 matching chairs. The Seal Rock home will be modeled after Nature's Paradise in amenities.

About Tammy Kreger

My husband and I bought this home in 2003 for the purpose of retiring early and living there. We're not ready to retire quite yet, and decided that we would really like to share this lovely home and the surrounding beauty with others!

I am proud and happy to say that I have lived in the Puget Sound area my entire life. One of my favorite pastimes is traveling. I have visited every continent, 60 different countries, and taken 44 cruises (so far!). Because I have spent so much time traveling, I truly have a good understanding of guests' needs and wants.

Even though I am happy to have seen so much of the world, I am always grateful to return to an area as gorgeous and diverse as the Pacific Northwest. I could choose anywhere in the world to retire to, but I have chosen Brinnon, Washington on Hood Canal for many reasons. Once you have visited this area, you will see why!

Tammy Kreger purchased this house in 2003

Why Tammy Kreger chose Brinnon

I chose this particular property because of the outstanding sweeping view of Hood Canal and Dabob Bay. There is also a great view of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker.

My husband and I are big seafood fans and love all of the wonderful shellfish available to harvest near our home. We also like to take advantage of the private dock for setting out to shrimp, crab and fish.

We can't imagine a more beautiful environment to vacation in. It truly is 'Nature's Paradise!'; so we hope you'll come and enjoy it for yourselves!

What makes this house unique

The 29-acre privately-owned beach is fun to explore by foot (we provide rubber boots in many sizes). Explore the Dosewallips estuary by boat, you will probably see many seals, eagles, king fishers, osprey, etc. The tidelands also have many species of clams. Some of the best dungeness crabbing can be done directly in front of the home.

You are welcome to take the provided boat off the dock and put some crab pots in it to take out.You can simply paddle out a short distance and place the pots for fetching later in the day. My husband and I do so and catch our limits easily! Some of the best Hood Canal Spotted Shrimp are also caught in the waters in front of the home. Crabbing and Shrimp are seasonal.

It is also fascinating to watch the nuclear submarines practice in the waters out front of the home. Bird watching is another fun and relaxing experience from our 1,600 square-foot upper and lower decks, and from the dock.

The food resources available in the area are tremendous. Nearby there is clamming, oysters, crabbing, shrimping, sea run cutthroat fishing, salmon fishing, wild mountain blackberries, evergreen huckleberries, and mushrooms.

Often I enjoy watching the Brinnon Roosevelt elk herd graze in the Dosewallips pasture lands right from my decks. Sometimes the elk actually come to my yard and graze on my landscaping!

Great family vacation home!

Beautiful location and a well equipped home for large groups. We felt very welcome and especially enjoyed being out on the water in the boats!

Owner's Response: Our waterfront location on the edge of the Olympic Nat'l Forrest is great. You are close to many hikes, waterfalls, restaurants, nature, etc. It is our goal to provide a well appointed comfortable home for large or small groups. We want everyone to feel right at home and to be comfortable. It is a lot of fun to take the canoe and row boat out and explore Hood Canal and the Dosewallips Estuary. It is amazing the amount of wildlife you will see from our boats or decks and dock. We will look forward to welcoming you back for your next stay. Thank you, Tammy

So much wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here so we could be close to the Boy Scout camp nearby. It was amazing! Comfy beds, well stocked house, steps to the water. We caught crab and my kids cleaned the beach of sea glass. This place is amazing and we will be back!

The house was spacious, clean and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

We all had so much fun staying at the beautiful home. We explored the area everyday and was amazed at the amount of wildlife we got to see up close.

The house was fully stocked with an abundant of white towels, plus soft sheets and blankets. The kitchen had more dishes than we could use and we had everything we could possibly need for cooking. We ate every meal here at the large table with this awesome view.

The dishwasher and washer and dryer were top of the line and we also used them daily.

They left us firewood for the fire pit that was so welcome in the evenings.

We used their boots to go exploring in low tide. The offered their the crab pots to go crabbing, but we just ran out of time so we will try that next time. We will be back. It was one of our favorite vacations together.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed our home so much. This is a great place for a family vacation. My Care-taking team do a wonderful job keeping our home clean, they work very hard and are wonderful. We try to have our home well appointed since most of our guests fly in from all over the United State and around the world. We want our guests to feel right at home. It is so fun to watch the wildlife right from our home or from the area. We see the Brinnon elk herd, eagles, osprey, seals, otters, etc. It is fun to fix and eat meals at our home, then serve them at our large water view table. We have mostly new appliances. We supply a moderate amount of firewood, kindling, starter paper, and lighter We are so glad that this was your favorite vacation and look forward to having you back for your next stay. Thank you, Tammy

The best of both worlds - nature & luxury

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fantastic getaway with hiking, biking, and beach combing. The home owner had anticipated everything we needed plus a couple of surprising treats. I would highly recommend whether you want a base from which to go out and adventure or just relax and enjoy the abundant beauty of the place.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you and your family enjoyed your second stay so much. This is a great home for a large group to be comfortable and enjoy good quality time together. Our home is located on the edge of the Olympic Nat'l Forest. There are many hikes, waterfall, and beautiful vantage points nearby. From our decks you can see the Dosewallips Estuary which attracts a lot of wildlife. It is easy to find the Brinnon elk herd, bald and golden eagle, seals, otters, etc. We can't wait to welcome you and your family back for your third stay. Thank you, Tammy
