About Marc Gordon

Imagine growing up on a blueberry farm!!! Marc & Amy Elizabeth moved from Port Townsend to picturesque Chimacum Valley in 2007. Living at Finnriver Farm has been a step into paradise & allows their 2 young sons to explore the farm, woods around The Huckleberry House.

Marc Gordon purchased this house in 2007

Why Marc Gordon chose Port Townsend

The Huckleberry House was being used as a mother-in-law cottage when we purchased the property. We decided that until Mom's a bit older, we'd share the beauty of the farm with guests. By the way, Mom did stay over Christmas, and loves the home!

What makes this house unique

Quiet country living, proximity to Port Townsend, the Historic Victorian Seaport 20 minutes away. Our home and the Huck House are on our property and we are on-site owner/operators. We actively meet all our guests, and enjoy providing farm tours as schedules permit. Come see us!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 found the Huckleberry House completely comfortable in all ways. We enjoyed being on a farm and the walk through the fields. The cidery and tasting were lots of fun, too. The house exceeded all our expectations and felt roomy and spacious.
Our host made sure we had everything we needed. This was a great VRBO that we would highly recommend!

The Finnriver cottage is lovely, spacious and lovingly decorated. The king sized bed is sumptuous! The lush garden and and many windows filled the rooms with warm green light. We were astonished at our good fortune to stumble into such a sweet place. The 'Food from Here 'store nearby is also a find. Pass on the Chimicum Cafe.

Breakfast With Robins

  • 5 of 5
A nest of robins had breakfast a few feet over my head as I ate mine at the table just out the back door of the Huck House. I was drawn outside by the exquisite light, the layers of green, the wind in the trees, the flowers blooming all around the house, the butterflies floating by. I go to the Huck House every few years to have my own retreat near my sister's home across the valley. I stay to restore myself with the aid of the art and self-help book collections inside, the bird songs all day and into the evening outside, the waterfall my sister will take me to nearby, the charming coffee shops, cafes and restaurants which we can drive to if we feel like leaving at all. I am barely aware of the bustling farm a stone's throw away, though I know my family can get eggs, berries and spirits. It is a short walk to a forest of blueberry bushes, a dozen ducklings, a small wind turbine spinning. The cottage is neat and clean with everything we need (towels, blankets, coffee maker) and nothing that we do not (TV, maids). No one bothers us but we are aware of being part of a peaceful harmonious world.

Our Favorite Get-Away Spot

  • 5 of 5
Since our first magical stay three years ago, our family can't seem to stay away from this enchanted setting. Our kids love the wide-open farm spaces for running between the goats and pigs or among the blueberry bushes. My husband and I love the relaxation that this sweet, clean and well-appointed home brings- not to mention the delicious cidery at the end of the pebbled lane! For us, it's a wonderful respite from our every-day lives- also a convenient hopping-off spot for exploring the peninsula. We just never seem to be able to tear ourselves away from the farm! Everyone is super warm and friendly- from accommodating our kids' desires to watch the farm chores to dropping our farm purchases at our back door. We completely adore the Huckleberry House and look forward to many more trips in the future!

Retreat at Finriver

  • 5 of 5
We have been using VRBO for over 10 years in the U.S. and in Europe. We really enjoyed the house at Finnriver Cidery. It was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. The beds are fabulous. It is dark and quiet at night so everyone slept well. The location is close to vibrant Port Townsend, beaches, bike trails, hiking, berry picking, farms to visit, ETC. There are kids to play with if you have kids that like playing… It was very clean and well maintained. The one area for potential improvement would be in what seems typical for a VRBO in terms of "basics" - like providing toilet paper, large frying pan, sugar, any condiments etc. There was nothing major that we couldn't deal with, its just not plush in that dept.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5
My family had an excellent stay at the Huckleberry house.
The house is very modern and has plenty of space. When we arrived it was super clean.
The master bedroom is large and has the most comfortable bed I've ever used.
It is very kid friendly with plenty of toys and books for younger ones. The neighbors and farm staff were very friendly and helpful.
It is a short drive to the nearest market.
The internet connection was a little squirrelly at times, but it wasn't a big deal.
We highly recommend it and would definitely stay again.

Notes:
Certified Organic Blueberry Farm & Cidery next door! As a guest at the Huckleberry House you'll have exclusive Finnriver Farm access for pick-n-pay of berries during summer season! Guests love the free-range organic eggs, just-picked produce and hand-crafted Artisan cider, all available from Finnriver Farm. Rotating farm animals include over 400 laying chickens, pigs, and requisite farm dogs 'Pippen & Kingston' are a joy for younger guests, as well as those young at heart. Our location in the fertile Chimacum Valley means that in addition to farmland, you'll see Bald eagles, Red tail hawks, Turkey vultures and Hummingbirds- this past winter we've seen majestic Trumpeter swans wintering in the valley below, a Ring-necked pheasant poking around, and we hear Pileated woodpeckers frequently darting through the woods. Walk the trail down to the blueberries and to Chimacum Creek where salmon spawn in the late fall.
