About Harry & Sue Barmon
The Barmons enjoyed the serenity of the Harstine Pointe environment for years and hope you will too. In fact, Harry loves Harstine Island so much that he was on the Board of Directors and head of the Architectural Control Committee of the Hartstene Pointe community at its beginning. He also personally poured the concrete on the original fire station, supervised volunteers and framed the structure which was later converted into the fitness gym.
Harry & Sue Barmon purchased this house in 2008
Why Harry & Sue Barmon chose Shelton
Harry designed and built Barmon's Vacation Home what it is today. Harry and a small crew had worked tirelessly weekend after weekend to construct the foundation, framing, siding, stone work and finish on the house. The hardwood moldings were made and finished on site. Harry paid close attention to detail when designing this house for form and function. You are safe from snow or tree falling while in Barmon's vacation home as the engineered structure was designed for shear and wind resistance to withstand such a blow.
Much of what you see inside the house is attributed to Sue's gifted talent of interior decorating. The interior design is an expression of Sue's endeavor to create a relaxing and inviting setting to blend the interior with the forest surroundings. Sue's careful eye and design skills can be seen through out the house right down to the door bell bear paw. Whether they were on vacation or out shopping, Sue's amazing ability to think of everything tied all of the decorating elements together before the house was finish being built. Her incredible attention to detail makes this home show room ready and worthy of a magazine spread.
As you walk around the house, you'll notice the stylish, professionally framed art, black and white photography. Talent runs in the Barmon's family, as these photos were taken by their 14 year old daughter, Lauren. Also, in the bathrooms, the high end custom tile work was done by the Barmon's talented nephew, Travis. Landscaping of native plants was also professionally done by David Barmon's landscape and design company which specializes in native plants.
As you can see, the Barmons are dedicated in making this wonderful vacation home as though you would want your home to be. The Barmons have enjoyed this home for years and want to share it with you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I came here with my out of town family and we had a great time! The house was beautiful, comfortable, and well stocked with supplies. We had a great time combing the beach, biking around the island (they have bikes there), and sight seeing off the Island. We could all fit around the table and we ate like it was Thanksgiving and played games and laughing until the moon came up! It was charming, the family was a delight to rent from, everything was so easy! There were even two living rooms so we could play games while the grandparents watched movies and napped on the down stairs couch :) I DEFINITELY recommend the Barmon's Vacation home for any occasion and especially the holidays or family visits. My family came from NY and they loved everything about our vacation and staying at the Barmon's was the highlight! Knowing the weather can be less than predictable in the great NW, I wanted to add that even in the rain storm, we were cozy inside with plenty to do, we went to the beach and watched the storm roll in, then dried off in front of the fireplace and had hot cocoa and tea!
