This house provided the perfect place for our family to gather during our Granddaughter's wedding - It could not have been better situated. Her venue was Red Cedar Farm and it is so close to this property, it was no problem getting to and from. There were 11 of us staying here and we never felt crowded.....there was a space to get away if anyone felt the need. The views and surroundings were amazing........we could not have ordered more perfect weather.

The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because the house needs a little TLC BUT if ever in this area again, High Bank Hood Canal will be the place we want to come back to.

Great venue for company retreat

Wonderful venue and perfect for a company retreat. Check in /out was very smooth and the amenities were as described. The highlight was a view from the property and access to the beach.

We had a very nice vacation at this fantastic property.

  • 5 of 5

Our group (19 people and a dog) had a great time at this property. We like this place, especially the easy access to the beach, the house with classical architectural features, big and spacious backyard. The landlord and the property managers are very nice and friendly. We may plan coming back again. Thanks Matt and Sherry for your hospitality .

Perfect for family reunion or wedding.

  • 5 of 5

Weddings just go too fast, and a big complaint is often that the family just doesn't have enough time to be together. Renting this beautiful home on the Hood Canal provides a relaxing being together atmosphere! Our wedding was at Kitsap Memorial State Park, which was only a few short miles away, which was perfect as we did all of the wedding set up and tear down. We had the bride and groom's family, as well as the small wedding party stay at the house. The brides mom had the master, with the huge closet perfect for dressing the bride on her wedding morning. The groom's parents also had a master. We paid extra to rent the cabin for the groom and his best man and groomsman to stay. There is one bedroom on the main floor which was perfect for the brides 88 year old grandmother who wasn't as mobile as the rest. Everything was clean and tidy, and chairs set upfor a bonfire. There was wifi and tv, but never turned it on because it was so great to be outside, collecting shells on the beach, watching the sunset, chatting around the fire.

The house is tucked away, but easy to find using GPS on smart phones. The roads were being replaced while we were there which caused some delays especially for those without smartphones. The crews worked quickly. There are grocery stores in Poulsbo and Costco about 10 miles from the house. The house had lots of staples, so I would recommend checking that out before shopping. Thanks for the fresh ground coffee! We needed it after late nights around the campfire! Highly recommend!

Wonderful and restful home!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had! The views are amazing! We loved the large fireplace downstairs and drinking hot tea each morning while enjoying views of the water and snow capped mountains. Large, well stocked kitchen with great appliances. All bathrooms were very clean with thick linens provided. We enjoyed listening to music and playing around on the top floor of this home. It is a large open area with wooden floors and a fireplace. All of the beds were very comfortable and I can't stress enough how clean this home is! The large master walk in shower with a sauna inside is amazing! The homeowner is very friendly and responds quickly to any questions. We will definitely be back! We walked the beach front and even got to see a submarine pass in front of the home. Such a great place to rest and enjoy time away with our family! Wonderful memories made! A must stay!
