Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I am retired from stage and television as an actress and worked for over 20 yrs as an interior designer. I have lived in many parts of US. I have lived here on the Key Peninsula since 2003. The barn and guest cabin living quarters was built in 2008. We wanted family and friends to have a special place to stay right here.
Why the Owner Chose Longbranch, WA, USA:
We moved from a beautiful waterfront home located on the Lynnhaven River and Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. We wanted to be on water again with views of the mountains and Puget Sound. This property had all we were hoping to get with wonderful NW woods as well. Close enough to three cities, Seattle, Olympia and Tacoma, yet out of the crowd for peace and relaxation. Gig Harbor is a beautiful town and has all we need just 20 minutes away. Key Center has enough to fill in the basics only 11 minutes away.We still have easy access to three cities by car or ferry and the Sea/Tac airport for any longer distance travel.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The world is a hectic and stressful place for many people much of the time. We have a spot that offers a real get away to no stress for total relaxation in a beautiful natural setting. Just relax and take in nature at it's best here in Western WA. The true Pacific NW of old growth forests, water and mountain views. Magnificent sunrises and golden sunsets. There are many ways to enjoy the life here on the South Sound. There are long stretches of beaches to explore and National and State Parks to enjoy. You can do many activities outdoors and explore small towns around the Sound, take a ferry to several different Islands and Canada. Within a two hr. drive you can be at the Pacific beaches. Visit Mt. Rainier NP or Olympic NP, Hoh Rain Forest, Crescent Lake, the San Juan Islands or Cape Flattery. We are very close to Hood Canal, Harstene Is. and several local wineries. The Glass Museum in Tacoma with the Dale Chihully bridge is special, a must do where you can actually watch works of glass art being made. Point Defiance offers a wonderful Zoo and dining at Anthony's. Gig Harbor is our little gem of a town. If not day tripping, the very best is to stay put right here and enjoy all the relaxation and beautiful location, maybe go kayaking, or for a walk or bike ride. After a lovely day fall asleep to the sounds of nature.
