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.
