100' salt waterfront with warm (75-80) water. Home built in 1920's but updated. Roomy open floor plan. Two tier deck with great view of Olympics. The sunsets will take your breath away. ( July 30, 2017 water temperature is 75). 2 rowboats and paddle boat. Large hot tub with a swimming pool sized filter, and Ozonator keeps the water clean. The dual level deck has disability access to both levels, and a ramp for access to home.
At the end of the day as the sun is setting over the Olympic Mountains I love to look at the changing colors of the sky and water. Usually at this time, the water is still and flat calm with small dimples of bait fish creating a myriad of small circles that intersect and depending on whether you are looking towards the setting sun or west towards the oncoming darkness, you will see different colors. It is hypnotic and tranquil, increasing your awareness of how magnificent mother nature is. It is quiet at this time of day and very relaxing. The warm waters in the summer (70 to 80 -the rest of Puget sound water never gets above 45 degrees), makes swimming a true joy with the buoyancy of the salt water making it easy to go out and snorkle for an hour or more at a time. Then a dip in the hot tub to wash off the salt.
You will have access to the whole property except the garage which house our boat. Disability access and door width inside suitable for power chairs. Ask about special arrangement for a 5-6 hours guided skippered boat ride, with tubes, etc, or just to go cruising along the shoreline We are one of the few to have a boat ramp which you can use if you have a boat you want to bring or wave runners.

I will have a local manager available to help if there are any issues, but you will just call me so I can personally decide if I can help you over the phone or if the manager needs to help.
Our dual level deck is great for entertaining ( we just had my oldest daughter's wedding here with 20 guests) AND giving space with a firepit on the top level and a very large umbrella and then the lower deck has a barbecue, heater, and high table with sun umbrella.The neighbors are practically non existent, being old or away most of the time, therefore it is very quiet and there are no flood lights so at night it is easy to see shooting stars. Myself, I sleep out on the lawn most nights in the summer on a cot, pad and sleeping bag. on the right side of the lower deck is the "golf course" great for pitching balls out on the water, and to the left of the deck is a wood fueled firepit, a couple of chairs,and a grill. If you are skilled in cooking over a wood fire grill, then this is the spot for you as the grill is right next to the bulkhead and water (at high tide) and it is just you and the smoke of the fire seared steaks - gosh I get hungry just describing it. Also a hammock close by so your lazy friend can lay in it and tell you what you are doing wrong. Flower beds and flower pots are overflowing in the summer with many types of flowers and a few fruit trees. Hummingbirds make this a year round home, and we frequently see their nests. There are an abundance of swallows who nest in the eves of the house and catch insects hatching from the salt water in the evenings. Many seabirds and migratory waterfowl feel relaxed around our neighborhood, with buffleheads and lonely loons crying out along with yellow canaries nesting in the neighbors hedges. An old totem pole rests his solitary self at the bulkhad corner near the boat ramp. At low tide you will often see bald eagles out on the beach or flying overhead and deer go out on the beach occasionally. All during the month of October Hunter Farms, a short drive away, features a great pumpkin patch, Hay Maze, and corn maze as well as a ride out to the pumpkin patch on a tractor driven trailer. On weekends there are hundreds of cars lined along the road and in the parking lots and lots of people enjoying a country atmosphere from the bygone days.
My family loves this place so we only have it open part of the time. I have four daughters and 3 grandchildren and while I hate to stay tied down at one place for too long, if I'm going to do that, then Hood Canal has just about everything - a slow pace, peace and quiet, marine life, waterfowl, and the occasion pod of killer whales. Our beach goes out 200 yards at extreme low tide and at that time it is fun to walk in the eel grass or snorkle as the tide comes in, viewing the multitude of little fish, moon snails, colorful sea slugs, starfish, and scuttling crabs.
