Overview

About the property

Beautiful 2 bedroom, 1 bath home nestled on 10 heavily-wooded acres.

Luxury and fun in the trees on 10 heavily wooded, verdantly lush acres! Enjoy this beautifully decorated 2 bedroom, 1 bath guest house featuring a private entrance, luxury linens, outdoor recreation, hiking trails, a 92-inch projection TV with surround sound, and all of the peace and quiet you could ask for-- all just 20 minutes from the Bainbridge Island ferry.

In addition to the 2 bedrooms, there is a queen-size air mattress available and plenty of space in the living room for it. Great for kids! Looking for indoor activities? There are 70 DVD's to choose from (kid's titles and popular hits), an expansive game and puzzle closet, and a sizable library of books (including kid's titles). Outdoor activities? Explore the 10 acre property and pick blackberries, in season. If you're interested in leaving the property, there are beach toys (buckets, shovels, sand toys, boats, trucks), beach chairs, beach blankets and towels, a rolling cooler and noodles for floating.

Guests have private parking and a private entrance to the guest house. There are 2 private upstairs decks available, a propane grill, a fire pit for roasting s'mores, and multiple roughed out and short hiking trails.

The home is located just 20 minutes from the Bainbridge Island ferry, between Suquamish and Kingston, across from Miller Bay, very near Chief Sealth's grave. The Clearwater Casino is less than 4 miles, Point No Point beach is less than 12 miles, and wonderful shopping and dining are available in both Winslow and Poulsbo. 90 minutes from Olympic National Park, so day trips are easy!

Rent kayaks, get pampered with a spa day, enjoy the great outdoors or just curl up with a good book and relax!

Please note that the owners live on the property and have 2 very friendly dogs which may be out on the property (supervised) during your visit-- but would never be in your home. The guest house and main house are connected via an upstairs glass corridor-- but share no common walls. The doors at either end of this corridor have been soundproofed to ensure your stay is quiet and dead-bolt locked to ensure your privacy.

About Andrea Ogg

We are recent transplants to Washington state and are excited to open our home to those who enjoy travel and adventure as much as we do. We will do everything we can to make your stay comfortable and fun and can provide great recommendations on dining, entertainment and outdoor activities.

Andrea Ogg purchased this house in 2014

Why Andrea Ogg chose Puget Sound North

Back home in Colorado, we were fortunate enough to live on property that backed to a national forest. When we chose to relocate to Seattle, we knew we wanted a rural property that had access to lots of local amenities. The moment we drove up the long, verdantly green corridor of the driveway and saw the home, we knew it had to be ours. The guest house was a huge bonus for us as we enjoy hosting friends and family when they visit-- and we immediately saw the opportunity to use it as a vacation rental spot. In a very short time, the Fun House in the Trees became a very special spot for us and our four-legged kids.

What makes this house unique

We've chosen not to cover most of the windows in the main house (and the main living areas of the guest house) because the overwhelming feeling of being in a tree house gives us such peace. The 10 acres are perfect for hiking our dogs, blackberry-picking, and wildlife viewing. And who doesn't love making s'mores around a firepit?

Perfect and beautiful place for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Fun House. It was a beautiful, roomy and private home for us on a large lot completely surrounded by trees; we loved sitting on the large and comfy deck gazing out at the peaceful trees while we had our morning coffee. There was plenty of room for 6 of us plus our dog. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything we might need and more. We were up and out early each day and returned late while exploring the Seattle area, the coast, and Mt. Rainier, so didn't get to fully enjoy all the wonderful entertainment and nice relaxing living room available in and around the house (that HUGE screen TV!!). The owners were a dream to deal with, and were available but left us alone. Highly recommend--5 stars!

The perfect place for our reunion

  • 5 of 5

The Fun House in the Trees was perfect for our 50th reunion of six friends from grade school. We wanted a tranquil, comfortable place to reunite and reminisce and that 's exactly what we got. We enjoyed eating and visiting on the lovely decks overlooking the woods and back yard. Derek and Andrea are excellent hosts. The house was stocked with everything we needed to prepare the meal we brought with us. Derek even offered his cedar plank to grill our salmon. We will remember the Fun House for our next get together.

Owner's Response: Jan, we are so happy that you ladies enjoyed your reunion! I'm so sorry I didn't get the chance to meet you-- Derek told me that you and "your girls" reminded him a lot of me and mine. I'm glad he took great care of you and I hope that you will think of us the next time you need a place to meet up!

Relaxing, quiet, and comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to come home to every night after spending our days exploring!! I think my daughter said it best when she said, "this is a place I could live in forever". It was very quiet and peaceful in the evenings and the view out the windows are all of trees so you really feel like you are away from it all!! We were greeted upon our arrival and Derek helped us take our luggage up!! Andrea and Derek also gave us great suggestions for local beaches to visit as well. If we ever come back to the Poulsbo area, we would definitely stay here again!!!

Brief but AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our brief stay at The Fun House in the Trees! After the hustle and bustle of Seattle the house was a great get away! We enjoyed the playing some games and catching up with our family. Movie selection was great too causing us to stay up late and sleep late on the day we needed to leave! Thank you for offering such a wonderful home and making us feel welcome and comfortable.
