Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: We have vacationed on Harstine Island since 1975. We bought the property and built the cabin in 1980 as a family recreation retreat. When Jim retired from IBM we built our Harstine home and expanded/renovated the cabin in 1995. Recently, we have moved to a nearby town, and welcome Ruth and Scott to our special home in the woods. They are now managing the cabin property and live in the main house. We love the South Puget Sound Area for its quiet and peaceful setting in heavily wooded forests surrounded by the blue salt waters of Puget Sound. It provides easily accessible destinations for walking, hiking, birding or quiet reflection and wonderful day trips to the Olympic National Park, ocean beaches, Seattle (1-hour ferry ride), Tacoma or Olympia.

Why the Owner Chose Shelton, WA, USA:
Activities on Harstine island: • Relax in this quiet bit of paradise; nap, read, watch your favorite TV football game or just enjoy the lush greenery that surrounds the cabin. Wifi is readily available at no cost in the cabin. Bring your swim suit and enjoy the outdoor hot tub. • Sit around a campfire, climb up to the tree house • Walking paths throughout the five acres. • ¼ mile walk to beach (picnic table and fire pit) • 2 State Parks, a boat launch and a marina on the Island

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Activities within a short drive: • Local Bakery with winetasting and restaurants • Salt water fishing and crabbing in south Puget Sound or Hood Canal (in season / WA license required). • Fresh Water Lake fishing nearby (WA license required) clamming on our local beach. • Serene boating and kayaking (Bring your own or rent one in neighboring town). • 30 minutes to the Theler Wetland and Nature Preserve (3 mile hike R/T) • Golfing (10 golf courses within a 35 mile drive). • 1 hour drive to Olympia or Tacoma for dining, shopping, site seeing, museums. • 2 hour drive to Seattle (or a 1 hour drive to Bremerton/Seattle Ferry); enjoy a day on the waterfront, Pike Place Market, Seattle Center, professional sport teams or shopping. • 2 hour drive to Pacific Ocean beaches and charter fishing at Westport. • Little Creek Casino: 30 minute drive
