Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I grew up in Olympia, graduating from Olympia High. My parents and family live across Eld Inlet. I now live in San Francisco and run an interior design firm. I like to come to Olympia often for family visits and to enjoy the Great Northwest.

Why the Owner Chose Eld Inlet, Washington, USA:
I bought this property because of the fabulous Mt Rainier views and the waterfront location. It is amazing to watch the water change with the seasons and the time of day. It is amazing to wake up looking across Eld Inlet to Mt Rainier! I often kayak across the Bay to visit my parents who live on Cooper Point. Or, it is a short drive.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
'Pickering' is an amazing retreat! It is a great place to decompress and relax. It is very romantic! One can take walks on the beach and enjoy the views. There are lots of outdoor activities available nearby.
