Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are excited to offer our Loft House to vacationers to enjoy our 'little peace of heaven' that we are enjoying in our semi-retirement. Our family has had vacation property in Mason County since the 60's so we are very familiar with the area. We have had lake property and then moved to saltwater property on Pickering Passage as a family in 1989. We originally lived and grew up in West Seattle but after the kids leaving home and semi-retirement we decided to build a home in Mason County moving here permanently in 2013. We are loving the community and the people we've met. The setting is serene, quite and peaceful. We look forward to having others enjoy this special spot exploring the South South and the Olympic Peninsula.

Why the Owner Chose Shelton, WA, USA:
Many people don't know much about South Sound. Once they visit by boat or car people are amazed how quiet and beautiful this area is and by how close to hiking and exploring they are. We talked about moving out of Seattle for several years and finally made the move permanently April 2013 and we LOVE it here!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Benefits? Close to hiking, the Olympic National Forest, the salt water, Hood Canal. Birds, deer, otters and eagles galore. Unique get-away in an area of the Northwest that many people don't even know exist - South Sound.
