Because the house is at the end of a mile long private road there is very little traffic, no noise, and lots of privacy. The 2 acre property has a large swing set/play structure for the kids, several flower gardens, and lots of room to run around and explore. Because of the unique location near a forest, on the edge of a meadow, there are several varieties of wild birds in the area, from hummingbirds to hawks.

I grew up in Washington, and bought this house so we could spend the summers and school holidays there with our 2 kids. The house is really our second home, and has everything from satellite TV to wireless internet. When I'm not out in the garden I enjoy sitting on the deck and watching the sun set over the Olympics. The rest of the year we live in Chicago, and I miss the mountains.

The house is at the very top of one of the highest hills in Jefferson County, and has 180 degree unobstructed views of Hood Canal, the Olympic mountains and Puget Sound. The view is just amazing!
By far the best feature of the house is the view, and the fact that you can see mountains or water from every room. We recently enlarged the deck, and put in a tempered glass railing system to maximize the view. The other unique feature is being off the main road, so you have peace and privacy, as well as great walking or jogging paths right out the front door.
We have been in this wonderful house for a year. We were burned out of our home last May and it was such a relief to have a peaceful place to come home to. Every room has a view. In good weather, we didn't leave the deck until the sun set over the mountains. Spectacular. We watched the "meadow" change with the seasons, each one lovely.
The neighborhood is quiet but friendly. The house accommodated my whole family, with 7 children, when they came to visit. Toys and books are provided, as is a very nice outdoor gym set. House is fully stocked with linens, cooking utensils, dishes of all sorts.
It is with some regret that we leave for our home 6 miles away. We are thankful for our time here and will always remember this second home and lovely area.

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful home for two months. The house is located on a hill at treetop level overlooking the Hood Canal and Puget Sound, with spectacular views of the Olympic Mountains and Mt. Baker in the Cascades. A few yards down Olympic Ridge Dr. near Fern Gully Dr. you can see Mt. Rainier on a clear day. The house was very comfortable, spacious and visually pleasing. A huge deck surrounds the living room and is accessed from the Master bedroom, Living room and side entry. The landscaping was beautiful, complete with Apple trees, garden areas, and even a gold fish pond. Wildlife was abundant including many species of birds, ranging from Bald Eagles to Hummingbirds. We had the privilege to attend a pot luck dinner at the owners Father's home nearby, meet a few of the neighbors and participate in making apple cider fresh from the harvest. We enjoyed visiting many local areas of interest and had a wonderful time.
Very spacious home. The sunsets were great to watch from the deck. Love the cozy neighborhood. This was a good location to go to Olympic National Park as well as some of the port towns in the area. I hope to be able to go back.
We loved our stay at this house. Panoramic views. Quiet,Peaceful home up on a bluff. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck while the various birds from everywhere came to snack at the bird feeders. The owner was very helpful and responds quickly to any concerns you have. Perfect place to come home to after exploring the peninsula.
My family rented this house as a home base for my daughter’s wedding. We have six kids and two son-in-laws. We needed room for everyone to sleep and prepare for the wedding. This rental was perfect. Lots of room, three bathrooms, comfortable beds, huge deck with breathtaking views, private and every amenity one could hope for. We prepared deserts for the wedding so with two ovens, seven bakers in the kitchen and lots of tiled counter space we were able to make fabulous goodies for a 100 person wedding. This house is a photographers dream with huge windows in every room providing great views and tons of light. After the wedding we had some relatives join us at the house and everyone was amazed at what a beautiful home this was. The kids played board games in the living room and groups gathered on the deck, in the dining area and in the sitting room for relaxed conversation. I would highly recommend this rental for your family vacation. You won’t be disappointed.
This is a home with excellent views of the Puget Sound, the Olympic Mt. Range, and the Hood Canal. The deck is wonderful for enjoying the views with your lunch, dinner, or favorite glass of wine. The home is open and spacious with a separate area downstairs. The home is located up a hill right up from the Hood Canal and is in a very quiet and beautiful neighborhood. The owner was very responsive to any questions that we had at all times. The home is about an hour away from Port Angeles. There is a wonderful grocery store in Paulsbo called Central Market that also has ready to eat items. The Fireside Inn in Port Ludlow is excellent for dining.
