Private and Serene! It's hard to believe that we are only about an hour south of Seattle. This place is truly magical. From the very well maintained and equipped guest house to the private "park like" setting. We have over 7 acres directly on Totten Inlet at the south end of Puget Sound.
Tall Trees, a walking trail and access to the beach highlight our property.
Our one bedroom guest bungalow along has all the amenities of a 3 star hotel – very nice but not pretentious. We have our own private beach and our property will remind you of a park!
The guest house is NOT on the water. It is set back about 1/4 mile on our property. You do have access to the beach and the property.
Everything that you are used to plus a true getaway from the stress and noisiness of modern-day life. You'll feel like you're in the middle of nowhere when you're just a few miles outside of town.Modern amenities include:
Queen size bed in the bedroom with Casper Mattress
Washer and Dryer
Bathtub with shower
42” LCD TV
Our cell phones do work here on the AT&T network
We have Comcast and Tivo. All you have to do is turn the power on with the television remote and everything else is controlled by the Tivo remote control. You can stream Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video etc. through Tivo. If you use any Pay Per View options, you will be charged for what you watch.
While staying here, guests will have full access to the trails and to the beach access trail on our property. There is a beautiful trail to the beach along the north side of our property. All you do is follow it to where the trail goes to the Y and stay right. There are oysters on our beach. Please don’t take more than your fair share. And remember the R in the month rule – Only eat oysters in months with an R in them. Even though these are “our oysters” you still need a shellfish permit to gather them. Please be careful, the trail is slippery and steep. You are on your own if you decide to go to the beach. We are in a commercial shellfish area. Do not trespass on other people's property.
Our driveway leads right to the front door making packing and unpacking easy. Feel free to park your car in front of the garage. If you have more than one vehicle, please park the additional vehicle out in the driveway.
We live on the property. This guest house is close to our personal residence. We only offer it to people who we feel will respect the land and our personal stuff.
We have two dogs and a cat. They live here too. If you have problems with allergies or any phobia with animals – this may not be the place for you. We occasionally have horses on our property too. Don’t ask to ride them, they aren’t ours.
We see wildlife all the time on the property. It is common to see deer, racoon, opossum, squirrels, chipmunks, owls, otters, bald eagle and other more common animals.
We are about half way between Olympia and Shelton. The area is called Oyster Bay. This is a commercial oyster production area. We have oysters on our beach. You are welcome to sample a few!
The bungalow is also just a few miles from The Evergreen State College where guests can walk around on its network of trails that navigate 100 acres of woods and leads to the Evergreen Beach. A beautiful walk for those seeking more of what the area has to offer. From here it is just another mile or so into downtown where you can get world-class coffee, tasty food, or a veritable cornucopia of items from the many shops and stores. 20 minutes south offers great views in Capitol State Forest or contemplate the mysterious presence of the Mima Mounds at Mima Mounds Natural Area Preserve. And the coast is just an hour away through Aberdeen with peninsula access via Highway 101.
You are going to need a car to get here. There is no public transportation. It is secluded yet close in. A well stocked local grocery store, tavern, gas station and a few other local businesses are within 3 miles.
We will respect your privacy or you can become “one of the family” and invite the pets into the guest house. We ask that you respect the environment and respect the property. Don't break or damage anything and take care of yourself. If you have any questions just call anytime day or night. And most important, enjoy your stay!
