Why the Owner Chose Poulsbo, WA, USA:
The property is a quiet, peaceful, sunny location on an acre of land, close to naure. It feels like going back in time.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The 1930's cottage reminded me of a place on an island where I grew up and fell in love with nature. A lot of love has gone into the cottage by its various owners through the years and I definately feel it when I step inside. If I'd had a stressful day and go to the cottage, a peacefulnesss washes over me. The details are charming. Outside, the old growth fir, view of the ocean, gentle breezes, lush greenery sooth my spirit.
