This beautiful hidden new home is only 30 feet from the bulkhead on a private cove on Puget Sound. Gorgeous views from every Window! Wildlife abounds! Seals, Eagles, Deer, Otter, Mink, Fish jumping, the rare sighting of a whale! This gorgeous and very private setting is perfect for kayaking, beach combing, and hiking, lots of clams, starfish, sea urchins, and crabs at low tide! A fire pit sits just yards from the water for campfires or cookouts! Hideaway is only 18 miles north of Olympia and 7 miles from Shelton near Arcadia Point. Did we mention how peaceful it is. Undeveloped properties surround the Hideaway, only a few homes are on no bank waterfront for miles. It is perfect for family weekends, Girl Friend Getaways, or anyone that wants to feel that they are truly away from it all. Property is over 7.5 acres of tall cedar and maples with 350' waterfront , year round creek and high tide boat launch. Beach Combing the tidelands at low tide is a must.
Stainless Kitchen, with large breakfast bar: Large kitchen with lots of bar top space to sit and watch the cook. Hideaway has an open floor plan with the family room right off the kitchen.
Back to nature: The sun room is the spot to hang out. With it's eight large windows and sliding door to the deck, you can't help but sit and watch all the wild life before you. That Seal that is wondering who you are is Sammy. I don't know when he sleeps because he spends his day patrolling the waters in front of the house. Then at night you can hear him slapping the water in the cove. A couple of times a week at 8:30 AM a doe and her fawns walk by between the deck and the water. Depending on the season (Fall) the salmon come back to spawn in the creeks and rivers. The jumping salmon really make you wish you had bought that fishing license.
The drive down to Hideaway: Hideaway gets its name from where it's located. Coming from Olympia you take Lynch Road off the 101, a nice country 8 mile drive. From Shelton you take Arcadia Road for 7 miles . Then you turn onto a long private driveway. The canopy of maples and cedar let you know right away that this isn't a regular rental. The driveway starts off flat then points down all the way to the no bank waterfront. When beach combing you won't find many homes and those you do are off the waterfront, so you will most likely have the beach to yourself.

This vacation rental is exactly as described and more.
We were pleasantly surprised once we reached the end of the driveway. The view is stunning! We were able to have a wonderful graduation party for my stepson as well as a much needed relaxing vacation. There was plenty of room for everyone. The property is well maintained and clean. Lots of amenities included i.e. paper products, condiments, etc. The huge kitchen and countertop allowed for lots of enjoyable meals. The deck and the fire pit was enjoyed by all. The large deck was a great place to view the abundant wildlife. The owner provided great customer service and our deposit was returned immediately. I would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in that vicinity. Thanks so much for the use of such a beautiful home!
Stayed for a week between Christmas and New Year. Owner cannot be held responsible for weather - it was cold. But several items were below standards of other home we have rented - the towels in the house were too worn, the sliding doors were broken with a sing saying don't use them. Took almost a month to get the cleaning deposit back.
What a wonderful retreat. The privacy is amazing. The location so close to the water with the tides changing so quickly is delightful. The house has a very open feel to it with window's that face the water. Well taken care of and clean. We went with another couple and had a wonderful time exploring the beach, kayaking, walking up the road and just sitting on the deck soaking up the sunshine and the view. Wood fireplace inside and a fire pit close to the water right next to the creek. We will definitely reserve a time next summer to take more family and just get away. I had several communications with the owner prior to the trip and I really appreciated the service he provided. I could keep rambling on about the place but this may sum it all up........it was very hard to leave come Sunday. Very hard.
The Hideaway is the perfect name for this place! It was a perfect getaway house when you want to be away from the city. The house was very quiet and peaceful with lots of exploring to do in the area. The sunroom looked over the water and was a perfect place to drink coffee/tea and just admire nature and the seals. We had 2 families with young children and it was plenty big enough for the 7 of us, we had one room that was still empty. The power went out in the county while we were there and the owner arranged to have more firewood delivered to the house to make sure we stayed warm. We would definitely stay at The Hideaway again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quiet get away.
My husband and I arrived first, then our daughters and their spouses arrived soon after. The first thing one of my sons in law said was: What bank did you rob to get this place?!!! The minute we walked through the front door we knew we had a hit. Everything you need is there. It was like heaven to have the water come up so close. We had fresh clam chowder, my husband tried a few oytsters. We watched sea lions bobbing their heads in and out of the water, a barge hauling timber, only one or two jet skis, was so quiet and still on the water. The star fish were amazing....didn't know they came in colors. Would highly recommend this place if someone is looking for some peace and quiet. To the Feist Family: Thank you for sharing this terrific place.

Fantastic! We had such a great time. Relaxing and we felt like we were camping but with a all the benefits of a home. Sammy the Seal was a highlight as well as an Otter that decided to come up onto the lawn to tan and scratch himself. My 2 year old refused to leave. We will be back many more times! Especially since we ended up there during Oysterfest!
Beautiful 18 mile drive north of Olympia.
