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.
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.
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
