THE CROW'S NEST is a large, clean, and private 677 square foot 2nd-story studio guest house above the detached garage of a million dollar waterfront home. It has 10' ceilings and is fully furnished with a private entrance. From its deck enjoy incredible views of Mt Rainier, Wollochet Bay and award-winning gardens. Use of rowboat is free. Ski boat with captain may be rented. Just about anything in historic Gig Harbor is 5-7 miles away from this convenient and affordable guest house.
Welcome to the Crow's Nest at Anderson Landing on Wollochet (pronounced wuh-lah'-chet) Bay in Gig Harbor, Washington.
Enjoy any season at THE CROW'S NEST at Anderson Landing. On the second floor of a separate building from the main house you'll have privacy, comfort, view and access to one of the most beautiful bays on Puget Sound. Enjoy our no-bank waterfront with view seating, mooring dock, lush gardens, and fire pit right on the beach.
Relax, entertain & barbecue on your private deck where you can greet the morning sun with coffee & enjoy the evening shade with a glass of wine. In the foreground of your view you'll see the quiet lush Shade Garden and fish pond designed by the owner, a Master Gardener. A cool retreat on a hot day! A bistro table and viewing benches also grace this area.
From Crow's Nest's queen-size bed view the water and Mt. Rainier...or the TV (with cable and a DVD player). WiFi is also available.
Linens are provided. Laundry facilities available for those who stay a minimum of 1 week.
Families and seniors will appreciate the easy access down to the beach and dock. Wander through the Shade Garden and enjoy the beauty of the changing landscape from early spring when the bulbs burst through to summer and fall's spectacular colors. The very short walk down to the beach is fairly level and there are no steps.
There is a Livingston (won't tip over) rowboat, and life jackets for your use, to row your way around the peaceful waters of Wollochet Bay.
If you prefer a faster pace bring your own boat or jet ski and enjoy water skiing, inner tubing and other water sports. Whatever kind of watercraft you have, tie it up to the buoy, available for your use. We have space to park your boat trailer and there is a public boat launch just 3 doors down the street. You are also welcome to bring your own paddle boards, kayaks, canoes or whatever boats you float.
Even in the WINTER this cozy retreat offers a quiet tranquility and beauty. Hundreds of unusual and beautiful migrating waterfowl visit these waters only at this time of the year. The sunsets can be quite spectacular and, with the occasional deep cold snap, the bay will freeze and we'll get the occasional snow. Our weather is temperate and seldom gets too hot (usually in the 70's and 80's in the the summer) or too cold (with winter averaging in the 40's).
