About the property

House, 2 Sleeping areas, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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.

Property is amazing and abundant with wildlife

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I could not have asked for a more relaxing stay. The wildlife is abundant and we enjoyed every moment. We came from out of state and Claire was generous enough to extend our stay to match our flight times. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Everything was clean, fully stocked kitchen, peaceful and private. We cannot say enough about this amazing retreat. A MUST DO!

Well loved, equipped and located vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I found the open floor plan, exposed wood walls, beamed ceilings and large deck just above a small tidewater inlet just what we were looking for. The kitchen is well equipped and the bedding is very nice and comfortable. It's close to a small salmon hatchery. We enjoyed staying home for our meals and watching the salmon and eagles from the back deck.

Embraced by nature

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. Watching the tides rising and falling in the salmon stream, enjoying birds of all sorts- including two bald eagles, visits from seals everyday...one of the best times ever. The house is embracing and comfortable- well appointed and obviously cared for. Could not be happier with our stay here.

WONDERFUL GET AWAY FOR THOSE WHO ENJOY NATURE !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were delighted with our extended stay at the Salish house. The property was well maintained, immaculately clean and the bed very comfortable. With Gig Harbor just a few minutes away, we were able to enjoy the many restaurants, shops and activities it has to offer. Claire, the owner, was meticulous with every detail and left an abundance of information on the area with suggestions for where to eat and what to do. Being able to enjoy the abundance of Puget Sound wildlife every day from the deck was extraordinary. We especially loved the eagles and the 2 harbor seals that swam by on our last day. We hope to go back soon with a better camera!
