This upstairs studio is close to Poulsbo, Puget Sound, the Seattle ferry, several state parks, Olympic National Park, Olympic Mountain trails, and historic Port Townsend. You’ll love this studio because of the coziness, the vaulted ceilings, the views, and the location. It's extremely quiet and very private. This Garden Suite is especially good for couples, but can accommodate solo adventurers and business travelers. Features a new queen-size bed, video library, and reclining love seat.

The space

This is a roomy, light, cozy upstairs apartment over a double garage. It is completely separate from our home. It has views out to the garden and the waterfront, and you can easily walk down to the bay. A great place for bird watchers, with Great Blue Herons, Kingfishers, Bald Eagles, Ospreys, Canadian Geese, Pileated Woodpeckers, Flickers, Nuthatches, Oregon Juncos, Chickadees, and more. Many interesting arctic ducks winter here. You can enjoy the view from the upstairs landing or you are welcome to sit on our covered porch to watch the tides and the birds.

Guest access

We have an acre of land. Around the house are flower and fruit gardens. Closer to the road are shrubs and grasses, and still closer to the road are large Douglas Fir and Maple. There are benches here and there to sit and enjoy. Occasionally a local deer will meander by, and we also have raccoons and opossums showing up from time to time. We have low-bank waterfront, so going down to the water is fine, though at low tide the mud is very deep and sticky, so please stay off the mud flats at low tide. We have 2 campfire rings. If you'd like to use one, please talk to your hosts to arrange the use of the appropriate site, as weather conditions often dictate safe usage.

Interaction with guests

Your hosts are (Mr.) Kim and (Ms.) Jan. Many of our guests enjoy peace and quiet, and so do we, but we are happy to answer any questions and enjoy sharing our knowledge of the area with our guests.

Other things to note

The TV is for viewing videos only - no cable service. Breakfast items will be provided in the kitchen area and/or the mini-refrigerator. You are welcome to cook while you stay with us, please wash your dishes. Heating and cooling is provided by a heat pump. The control is wireless and easy to use, and instructions are provided. Living on the water we have a sensitive septic system, so we ask our guests to put nothing in the toilet that you didn't eat or drink first. Therefore, we request all paper products to be placed in the waste basket next to the toilet.

This was my second stay at Kim and Jan's it was just a cozy, quiet, comfortable and pleasant as the first stay (a year or so ago.) I never actually saw Kin or Jan on this trip (I was working long hours), but they made check in and out easy and I had everything I needed - including good coffee (!), breakfast cereal and fruit, good wifi, and a nice firm bed that is remarkably comfortable. I enjoyed returning to such a welcoming place each evening. Thanks, again. See you next time!

Kim and Jan are living in a very beautiful and quiet spot, it's directly at the waterfront. We just spent an entire day at their place, sitting outdoors, it was lovely. We would definitely come again a second time!
