Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am retired from The windsurfing business where I worked for over 35 years. Before that I worked in banking and the small sailboat business. Born in LA but raised on the east coast I have traveled quite a bit and lived in many beautiful locations. I ran a B&B part time many years ago and have a good understanding of travelers expectations for accommodations and things to do. Conveniently, I live right across the street from Welcome House and have spent the last 14 months remodeling it and bringing it up to date.

Why the Owner Chose Cathlamet, WA, USA:
Welcome House has a bit of history, once being a small dairy farm and for a time housed quite a large family. It is situated well back from the road and is surrounded by level grass covered ground. Its just one story making it convenient for those who are a bit challenged for getting around. I especially liked its 500 sq ft living room that greets everyone when they enter the home.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Puget Island is whats unique about Welcome House. Its off the main drag and maybe a bit undiscovered but close enough to shopping and things to do. We have a great little grocery in town just a couple of miles away and everyone here is very friendly. Good place for dogs where they can run and play off leash. If your dogs are swimmers there is a nice long beach at the north end of the island where they can chase a stick or just run on the river sand and its all fresh water! And a new Siemens Car charging station for all electric cars. Perfect for travelers from Seattle and Portland.
