Overview

Port Orchard House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom waterfront house for vacationers or for small gatherings

If you are looking for a spacious waterfront house to use for a birthday party, small intimate wedding or anniversary, family or class reunion, scrapbook gathering, girl's getaway, etc., Waterman Beach Lodge may be just the place you are looking for. If you need help planning your event, we may be able to help. It is also the ideal spot for vacationing with your family, multiple families, and small groups.

Waterman Beach Lodge is a 2-story home built in 1918 which sleeps 12 - 14 guests. It was built by a family from Seattle who made this their summer home. It was remodeled in 1975. Logs were harvested from the hillside behind the home to make up the living room ceiling. The walls are rustic knotty pine. There is a big woodburning fireplace. The home has a feeling of a warm, cozy lodge. The surroundings are very peaceful. There is a wrap-around porch overlooking a big lawn area where you might like to set up our volleyball net for a group game. There is a terrific view of the water from the porch as well as from every room inside the house. Sit in the porch chairs and relax with a good book or enjoy a barbecue on the gas BBQ grill. Watch the Seattle-Bremerton Ferry go past as well as occasional submarines from Bangar Submarine Base, and Naval ships or view a beautiful sunset. Walk across the street to go beach combing or have a picnic on our private beach. Walk only four houses away and be on the Waterman public fishing dock where you can fish, go crabbing or squiding. Or you may wish to bring your small boat, jet ski, or kayak. We have parking available for it and it's just about 10 minutes away from the Manchester State Beach Park that offers a boat launch ramp. For inside entertainment you will enjoy the 36' flat screen TV and several videos, a selection of board games, and a ping pong table. Waterman Beach Lodge is a great house for entertaining groups, large or small, young or old . There is a spacious fully equipped kitchen and eating area. Downstairs is the Living room/dining area, kitchen, a master bedroom with queen bed, adjoining bath, and garage with laundry area and ground level entry. There is a queen size sofa bed in the living room. The dining table will seat 10 persons and there is also another small table which will seat 5. We also have 2 more long folding tables should you need them, plus several folding chairs. The upstairs has 3 spacious bedrooms and an old-fashioned bath with a clawfoot soaking tub for relaxation. The first bedroom has a queen bed plus a single daybed. The center bedroom has 3 twin size beds and the third bedroom has a queen bed plus 2 twin size beds. All linens and towels are provided.

Make Waterman Beach Lodge your home away from home when you are in the Kitsap or Port Orchard area or rent it for your small event, holiday gathering, or get together.

About Leah or Sam Weld

Welcome to Waterman Beach Lodge. Our names are Sam and Leah Weld. We are a retired couple who moved to Washington State in 1989 from Santa Barbara, California where Sam had worked as a Physicist. Sam was born in Seattle and was raised on Bainbridge Island. His family moved back and forth between Bainbridge Island in the summer and Santa Barbara in the winters. Leah was raised in Santa Barbara. We met each other in high school and were married after Sam graduated from Rice University in Houston. After we married, we vacationed several summers on Bainbridge Island with our three daughters at a family owned cabin. We later decided to move to the area when we retired. Our grown daughters and their families had already located here before we did. We purchased this updated 1918 home after falling in love with it's homeiness and old fashioned charm and warmth. We have had many family get-togethers, weddings and parties here along with our friends. We live about 8 minutes away. We still like to visit this home as often as possible as do our daughters and their families. We continue to have our family parties and get-togethers here. We are sure you will enjoy Waterman Beach Lodge as much as we do.

Leah or Sam Weld purchased this house in 2003

Great House!

  • 4 of 5
Like the previous reviewer, I was able to make a last minute reservation for a 7 night stay over the thanksgiving week. We had family coming into town for my grandmother's memorial service. This place was wonderful. We were able to sleep four families, one to each room. The kitchen was huge and full of amenities that made it easy for us to have the rest of the family over for food and fellowship. There were enough dishes to cook, serve, and plate thanksgiving dinner for probably 25 people (we had 13). It was very cold, but we still made it across the street to explore the beach and the waterman pier. There were lots of games, toys for the kids, and a ping pong table. This House is very charming and set up really well so all could gather to play games, sit by the fire, watch a movie, or just visit. I would definitely recommend it, and I would stay again in the future!

What a great place!

  • 4 of 5
I made a last minute reservation for a 2 night stay and I'm so glad I did. I was in town for my father's funeral and had grown children coming into town as well and I didn't want to be separated into many hotel rooms. This place was perfect! We were able to gather together and invite cousins to visit as well. The kitchen was huge and perfect for gathering while we cooked. It was also very well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. The ping pong table got lots of use. Kids of all ages spent time on the beach and we loved sitting on the porch watching the ferries and listening to the wake lap against the beach. Its not a modern house or fancy but its homey, very comfortable and most importantly very clean. There are grocery stores close by and its in a central location so you are close to many activities. I definitely recommend this for a family stay!

Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property for a birthday party and had around 12 people (including small children). The first thing we noticed when we pulled up was the beautiful front porch with amazing view!! When we walked in, the house was clearly in great shape and was extremely clean. There was even a welcome gift on the kitchen counter! It was warm and welcoming.

Throughout the stay we played ping pong in the garage, kicked around a ball in the front yard, walked on the beach and gathered shells, went for a jog and played several board games that were provided.

The place was very spacious and comfortably accommodated all of our needs. I think about 4 people ended up taking a bath in the upstairs bathroom because it had such a relaxing feel to it. It was a deep claw foot tub and was wonderfully relaxing.

There were extra blankets, pillows and towels and the kitchen had every item we needed to make our stay enjoyable.

I can't say enough about this place. I'd love to come back in the summer for a longer stay!! I would imagine in warmer weather, there is even MORE you can do at this place.

Thank you for letting us use your beautiful home.

Waterman Beach Lodge is centrally located in Port Orchard in Kitsap County. Port Orchard is a good place for your home-base whether you are in town for business, pleasure, or for visiting the many small communities surrounding it. This property is also available for a one-day gathering (up to 48 persons) such as reunions, birthdays, parties, weddings, club meetings. If you need help planning your event, we can help.

Port Orchard has some good antique shops, a yarn shop and tea room owned by award-winning author Debbie Macomber who calls Port Orchard 'Cedar Cove' in her books, several golf courses, and a weekend farmer's market. It is also close to a second ferry at Southworth terminal which takes you to the south end of Seattle close to Alki Point.
