About the property

NOTE REGARDING AVAILABILITY: Please contact owner by phone or email regarding availability of your dates PRIOR to online booking. Some dates have minimum stay requirements. And please provide a little info about yourselves and the purpose of your visit.

This vacation home is the kind of vacation home you might visit to write a book or just get away from it all. Enjoy views of bald eagles, deer, blue heron, osprey, and salmon right off the deck. In addition to the natural beauty, the home was designed with your complete comfort in mind, with high ceilings, mahogany floors, and a huge kitchen and bar area. It is located 45 miles from Seattle, just outside the charming town of Gig Harbor, Washington. The vacation rental is also close to Olympic National Park, Mount Rainier, and many other great Washington State destinations.

The sleeping area includes a king-size Englander mattress with 400-plus thread-count sheets right in front of the fireplace. The luxurious bed and tranquil silence ensure restful nights, from which you will wake to stunning views of the bay and wildlife.

A KITCHEN WITH A VIEW. Prepare the day's catch with a complete view of the bay and stream. The kitchen includes top-quality appliances, commercial grade cookware, a professional knife set, as well as complete sets of wine glasses, cups, plates and silverware for six. The kitchen and bar area is a great place to cook as well as chat between the kitchen and the living room while you prepare a romantic dinner for two or cook up the days catch for the family.

WILDLIFE VIEWING

For anyone who has never experienced a true Alaska-style salmon stream*, it's pretty incredible! The freshwater stream is very clear. You can see the fish right from the deck. And of course, the eagles are there for the salmon as well. The Salish House is also home to cranes, osprey and other bird life. It's the Discovery Channel right outside your door.

THE HOME IS LOCATED five miles outside of downtown Gig Harbor, Washington (a 45 minute drive from Seattle). Local shopping, dining, art galleries, a day spa, and theatre are just minutes away, or you can go a bit further and take in Seattle, Mount Rainier, or the Olympic Rainforest. The location of the house is perfect for those looking to experience the great outdoors as well as have fun in the city or just relax in secluded elegance.

ACTIVITIES ARE PLENTIFUL. The property is just three miles from Horseshoe lake and Horseshoe lake golf course. In addition, it's within a 20 minute drive of three world class courses: McCormick Woods, Trophy Lake and Gold Mountain. Kayaking, fishing, sailing, hiking and beachcombing are popular activities in the area as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to touch base with you and let you know what a wonderful time we had in your vacation property. The home was just perfect! Great kitchen and living room and even though the sleeping quarters weren’t real private it was great fun having the family all together. Everyone had a perfect time. We particularly enjoyed watching the eagles on a daily basis. Having the back yard scenery change from a stream to a lake was really entertaining for the kids.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.

This place really does have all the amenities of home. It’s in a scenic, private and in very quiet location. We loved watching the tide come in and out and watching the wildlife! We would definitely stay here again.

This vacation rental is very well-maintained and comfortable. Two gas fireplaces and great beds provided for a restful week.The setting on Minter Creek is both lovely and historical. We enjoyed the wildlife, the quiet, and the changing beauty of this tidal creek and it surroundings.

Beautiful, secluded home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great vacation at this property. This cozy home is loaded with character, we really enjoyed the two fire places as well as a nice space to watch TV and or play games. The property is very secluded and feels very private. The home does have some water front areas, bring your muck boots if you want to enjoy the water area. We were able to sleep five, it was cozy but provided a great location for our family get away. The home was well stocked too, traveling with three kids this was much appreciated. The yard is very well maintained, the property is very impressive. RELAXING!!!

Forest retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband, preschool-age daughter, and I recently stayed here for a weekend escape from the city. It was perfect -- very quiet, lovely, and relaxing. We didn't see or hear anyone else around us the whole weekend! We would definitely go back.
