ISLAND CABIN OVERLOOKING A QUIET COVE

Harstine Island Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

Harstine Island is located 16 miles from Shelton, a peaceful little town located between Highways 101 and 3 on the Olympic Peninsula. Harstine Island is the third largest island in the South Sound (after Vashon and Bainbridge) consisting of 40 square miles with 30 miles of shoreline. The island is non-commercial and rural with dense forestation and abundant wildlife.

Located on a quiet cove, our cabin is a place to let your cares slip away. You will love the old fashioned romance of the antique filled cabin on 5 beautiful acres. Two sets of French doors open to a covered porch. From the porch rockers or the porch table and chairs you can watch the tides rise, blue herons take wing and otters pop their heads up to peer at you. Your own private deck with a gas bar-b-que and table and chairs overlooking the saltwater cove.

Peaceful accommodations with spectacular views. Rest awhile on a garden bench or on one of 3 large decks overlooking the Puget Sound and the snow capped Olympic Mountains.

Complimentary treats frequently appear-scones with homemade jams, hot cookies, muffins, cheese and crackers--whatever the weather or season inspires.

Leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind and reserve your special moment in time.

Mike grew up in the Tacoma area. Went to Northern Az. University and taught school for 30 years in Yuma, Az. I grew up in Southern Illinois, moved to Yuma in 1968. Mike and I have 6 grown children and 2 very spoiled island dogs.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1997

We came to Lacey Wa. for vacations every summer from Yuma, Az. July 3rd, 1988 a cousin brought us to Harstine Island to dig clams. As soon as we crossed the bridge I knew this is where I wanted to live. When we both retired in 1995 we began to fill our dream.

If you are looking for a quiet restful cabin surrounded by evergreens and the sounds of nature this is for you! Spend the day digging clams and getting oysters right off the beach. Everything is provided. Spend the evening around your own outdoor firepit. Firewood and marshmallows provided. Enjoy the well stocked games, puzzles and movies.

Quiet relaxing weekend

First I want to say how wonderful Judy and Mike were. I was a little nervous about having the owners close by but don't worry, they give you plenty of privacy. We walked in to the cabin and just smiled at each other, we had made the right choice. The cabin was clean, cute and very comfortable. The bed was perfect, good pillows and wonderful soft sheets. There was already a fire laid in the stove, ready to be lit. The extra care from the morning fresh baked surprises to the bundle of wood wrapped with twine left on the porch with an added touch of cedar. We couldn't have asked for better. There are two beaches, we only made it to one but our dog loved running up and down the sand. I have to say I was shocked in a good way with all the dishes and pans, no cheesy silverware at this cabin, everything was above great quality. Everything you could possibly need was there for us. Thank you so much for such a relaxing weekend, it ended too soon, but we will come back for sure.

The Only Get Away Weekend Where We TRULY Relaxed!

We have had many romantic get away weekends but this by far was one where we truly just felt so relaxed. It started off with arriving to the warm hospitality by Mike and Judy. The first thing we saw when we walked into the cabin was fresh baked pastries - warm, just out of the oven. It wasn't just that - but how they allowed us to feel free to walk on the property, down to the beach, etc. and that made us feel so welcome and at home. We are looking forward to coming back again and making this a trip every year. Thank you again Mike and Judy.

Very homey and inviting

We were at the "Island Cabin Overlooking the Quiet Cove" on Thanksgiving weekend, just three generations of girls in the family. No Boys Allowed.
We did have a slight, little problem with the DVD player. But on the day of Thanksgiving, Judy graciously sent her son-in-law to help us try to figure out the DVD player. She also lent my niece a hot glue gun for an art project that she was working on. All while hosting her family and cooking the big meal for the holiday. Judy truly is an extraordinary host.
My niece especially loves beach combing and desperately wanted to try or the first time ever clamming. Unfortunately, the tides did not work in our favor. It was the end of November after all, it shouldn't have been a surprise. But when we did get down to the beach, my niece was able to pick up off of the shore a nice oyster, clam, and lots of crabs. Next time we come she wants to come in the summer so she has a better shot at clamming.
It was a fabulous get away. We didn't stray to far from the cabin, as homey as it is we didn't feel we had to. From the roads, you can not see much just driving around, but once you get to a shore line, WOW. The views from the cabin were wonderful, lovely hearing the birds chirping, and water hitting the shore line.
The community holiday bazaar was going while we were there. It was amazing. The community feel, everyone knew everyone else. It was truly a close knit community. The homemade goods were very fun to investigate. My niece got some cards, a cuff bracelet, and artistically enhanced journal. My mom got the man of the house some pepper jelly, which was great.
Judy's homemade goodies were to die for. I especially liked the new improved recipe for Judy's Famous Scones, they should always have a glaze now. My favorite cookie ever is snicker-doodles, so it was especially nice entering the cabin for the first time to a plate of snicker-doodles. She truly knows the way to peoples hearts.
Thank you for letting us intrude on your holiday weekend. We loved every minute of it!

Truly a relaxing hideaway!

We just returned from our two night stay and the only negative thing I have to say is ...we didn't stay long enough! The cabin and hosts were charming! The little touches of homemade cookies, chocolates on the pillows and fire laid and ready to start made the stay truly memorable. The cabin was fully stocked with all the pots and pans you could possibly need; from the basics like flour, oil, spices and sugar to coffee, hot chocolate and marshmallows. We particularly enjoyed the fine selections of games and movies. Can't wait to return for a longer visit!

Having owned a cabin on the boarder of Canada and Vermont, we were seeking to find a cabin on the West Coast to relax in. This cabin with it's log stove and comfy atmosphere was a delight......and unlike our cabin it had running water! We were on Harstine Island for the Apple Press and Fair. A lovely surprise was finding "goodies" on the poach...what a lovely surprise.
Would we go again YES
