This 900 SF sunny, spacious private studio is a beautiful and peaceful home-base for relaxing as your personal retreat, easy trips into Port Townsend as well as a launch to explore the Olympic Mountains. It comfortably sleeps 2, but can accommodate 4.
Enter through garden gate and path, where you enter through your outdoor kitchen, into your cozy and welcoming studio/loft. There is a queen size bedroom alcove as well as a comfortable convertible couch (queen size), covered outdoor fully-equipped kitchen and indoor or outdoor eating area. The bathroom is large with a shower and laundry.
Located just 5 miles from downtown Port Townsend where you can enjoy artisan galleries, five-star restaurants, great shops, special music events and walks on the beach.
At home, enjoy sitting in the cozy bay window, watch ducks, eagles and herons land in the natural pond surrounded by Olympic forest trees. At the end of your day exploring, enjoy a campfire (fire wood and kindling ready for your use) and relax as evening descends. Guests have called this both magical and a luxurious way to experience nature so close to town.
If you like biking (and walking), we are near the Larry Scott bike/walk trail or use the many bike lanes to head to Fort Warden, town or points south. We are 40 minutes drive to the Olympic Mountains and an hour from Port Angeles where you can take the Blackball Ferry to Victoria, BC. Seattle is about 1.5 hours and Seatac Airport about 2 hours.
Internet is available, but noTV screen.
The Outdoor Kitchen:
The Outdoor Kitchen is just off your entrance, is covered and fun. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a refrigerator, sink, a full range oven, BBQ, microwave, electric teapot, coffee maker, and cooking supplies. We'll make sure you are supplied for your morning coffee and tea (nice array) along with fresh cream in the frig and honey in the cupboard. You'll also find Balsamic Vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Eat indoors or out.
Your hosts (Randy and Jackie) live upstairs and greatly respect your privacy. We also desire to make your stay special and can give suggestions on where to eat and explore. This is a small farm with chickens and our cat Kibo, and garden so you will see us tending the animals and plants. Please feel free to visit them, making sure the gates close behind you!
Create Your Own Personal Retreat
The basics are all here for you to spend reflective time, journaling, walking the trails, sleeping in, doing yoga or pilates (we have the mats), drinking in the nature to feel restored and rejuvenated.
Extras are booking sessions with Jackie who is a holistic nurse healer, coach and Pilates instructor. You can book a session with her for an Energy Healing session, Pilates, or health coaching and her own special practice of Nature-Based Inquiry. Please Inquire!
**The pond is for the wild life to enjoy. There is no swimming or boating.
