Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

Come to the water... a delightful getaway at Gladwin Beach. Just the place to make memories with family and friends; laugh and love; connect with and enjoy each other.

Gladwin Beach House is located on the North Shore of Hood Canal; the sunny side of the Canal. You may see flocks of ducks and water birds, a heron fishing for dinner, or still blue waters under blue skies.

Come experience this charming log cabin. Gladwin House was built over 100 years ago as part of a logging camp on the shore of Hood Canal. The house has been expanded and upgraded, but it still has that cozy log house feel. The living room is very relaxing, with a river rock fireplace and a beautiful view of Hood Canal. With four cheerful bedrooms, a daybed by the fireplace, and a fully equipped kitchen, you will feel right at home.

Gladwin Beach House is at the end of the Hood Canal. In the summer, the waters are warm enough to swim and play in when the tide comes in over the tide flats. The warm water is a rarity in Puget Sound. Put the kayak in the water and explore the Theler Wetlands and Union River Estuary. Take a nature hike, or mountain bike nearby trails. Relish and enjoy the quiet and peaceful picturesque water views here. At night, sit by the fire pit; sing songs, tell jokes and roast marshmallows.

In the winter, relax in the hot tub and watch the water birds flock. Maybe drink hot chocolate, enjoy a good book by the cozy river rock fireplace, watch your favorite movie or play board games.

We invite you to come and enjoy the serenity at Gladwin Beach House!

About Ai Ling and Lance Wyllie

We love to meet the folks from around the area and around the world who have stayed at Gladwin House. It especially gratifying when Gladwin House can be host to family getaways, girls nights out, reunions, and life celebrations. We want Gladwin House to be a getaway and place to rejuvenate relationships and make lifetime memories.

Why Ai Ling and Lance Wyllie chose Hood Canal, Puget Sound

We have been coming to Hood Canal for years, spending time with friends down here. When the kids were small we would spend all day on the beach with them. When Gladwin House went up for sale, we jumped at the chance to own this special piece of Hood Canal right at the edge of the wildlife conservation area.

Thank you so much for our get away for us girls. Your house made us feel comfortable & cozy. We enjoyed the quiet & quaint atmosphere. It made us feel like we were miles away, yet so close to home. Thanks again - love your house. Being greeted by Lance & having the house warm & inviting made us feel so welcome. Your hospitality is top notch.

Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at Lance and Ai Ling's vacation home and it was as fun and relaxing as the first time we went there. Lance was there to greet us when we arrived and had a nice warm fire going already and kept the house warm for us. Our grown kids and their significant others came down there for the day on Saturday and we had a fun time clamming and walking along the water. We brought our two small dogs with us and they enjoyed walking in the water as well. The kids stayed for lunch and dinner and they liked the coziness of the house like we did. Even though the cable service was out, we brought a few DVDs along with us, so it worked out fine. Their house is very clean and very welcoming. I am looking forward to next year already when we can come back and stay at their house. Thank you Lance for being such a generous and gracious host to us! Karen and Dan Pinga

Very good.

  • 4 of 5

The Gladwin Cabin was a great place for our family's long weekend getaway. The log cabin, though an old structure with a single bathroom, is charming, essentially well cared for & equipped. The owners, Ali and Lance, were gracious hosts & responsive to the needs of our party, which included two toddlers & our family dog. The property, which is located directly on the canal, has a three foot concrete wall separating beach area from the backyard that was a bonus with our group. We enjoyed the access to nearby playground, the ability to walk to the state park & exploring the wonders of the shore.

Cozy historic home

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't capture charm. Gracious hosts, well stocked kitchen. Strawberry patch which we used to make waffles. Nice having clamming supplies,boats with life jackers, water shoes, croquet setvwith lovely side yard to play in, outside fire pits. Park next door with play structure handy to walk dogs. Beds were comfy enough. Upstairs had hand made bedroom doors lack full privacy. Downstairs bedroom doors were traditional. Would definitely stay again.

We arrived to a crackling fireplace and had a relaxing weekend. We explored the hood canal area by day and soaked in the hot by night. Highly recommend this gem. Owners were great... thanks again.

Perfect Home for Six

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a home for 3 adults and 3 children for Spring Break. With difficulty finding anything in or surrounding Bremerton, we ran across this gem. We arrived to a warm home and a fire already going. We loved the view, watching the birds and tidal changes.

Games, books, magazines were plentiful, as well a well thought of extra touches such as matches and candles (we had a stormy night and the electricity went out for a few hours), a hair dryer, shampoo and extra blankets. For those with a baby, there is also a crib handy.

Communication with the owners was a breeze and they were so friendly and accommodating. In addition, the adjacent park host Dianne was helpful during the storm, providing extra candles.

A perfect home with a perfect view. We'll be back.

The perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent another spring weekend at Gladwin House. It has become an annual tradition to celebrate my birthday there. Wonderfully appointed, clean, comfy beds, a huge fireplace, magazines and interesting books...everything we needed/wanted and more! Beautiful spring day on the deck watching the birds and the changing of the tide. Cozy evening enjoying a roaring fire and the peaceful surroundings. The owners are excellent hosts, very friendly and helpful. Go there and you will be Glad!!
