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 3 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?

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.

Exactly as advertised, and more!

  • 5 of 5

Derek met us as we arrived, he helped us with our luggage and gave us a tour of the house and the grounds. Could not have been more accommodating. They have the house set for just about everything you need, including beach toys, towels...really everything! The house is packed with supplies, better than most we have stayed in (probably our 20th rental) and in all our times renting, this is the first time we have met the owners!

Working with Andrea was just as wonderful, we waited a little bit to book the house and lost the first weekend, which worked out great b/c we are heading to Seattle now, but are coming back to stay here next week! Andrea worked with us on pricing and made everything fantastic! Poulsbo is a hidden treasure and the beauty of the property is unmatched!

We can't wait to come back on Sunday and spend the rest of the week in the area! Whether you are staying a few nights or a week, this place is awesome!

Fifth Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our fifth stay at the "Fun House" was as good as our last four! Can't ask for a more relaxing location. The six weeks visiting our grandson flew by. We did have a sad last week however when Andrea's beloved dog Jackson had to be put down and our beloved car was in an accident.

Owner's Response: We so love having you two here-- and enjoy the chance to visit with the rest of your family as well! Jackson really loved you and Arlene and we're so grateful you got to see him one last time. We are also so glad that Arlene wasn't hurt in the accident and that you were able to get your car situation squared away so quickly. We hope to see you again soon!

Lush and tranquil, remote and perfect for what we wanted

  • 5 of 5

Derek and andrea were amazing hosts that helped us with every need promptly. They were a pleasure to work with and the house was large, clean and pet friendly. We cooked with local ingredients in the spacious kitchen and the dogs loved playing frisbee with boo and gus (their pups). We enjoyed the quick drive to the ferry as well as the in town market and breweries. We would def return:)

An amazing experience and wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at The Fun House. 3 of us couples and 2 dogs spent a night here for a wedding in Port Gamble. It was an easy short drive to Port Gamble and I can't express how wonderful the hosts were to us. The space is extremely dog-friendly, and Andrea & Derek, even graciously offered to let the dogs out while we were at the reception and ceremony. They went out of their way to make sure we had every amenity we needed. There was plenty of room for 6 of us to sleep and the bathroom was large so all of us were able to get ready in time. Our only complaint was we wish we had more time to spend there and enjoy the luscious green and walking paths that they created on their property. We will surely be back again!

A wonderful family weekend

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house and the surrounding woods. Our hosts were lovely and welcoming. My kids loved the closet full of games, playing fetch with the dogs, and exploring the woods around the house. Highly recommend!
