The Manor at South Bay offers a serene getaway to the country. Equestrian property provides the weary with peaceful surroundings of lilacs, green rolling pastures, walking trails, and wildlife, all just 6 minutes from I-5.
The house sits high on a hill and offers convenience and relative privacy. (A note about privacy can be found at the end of this description)
The Manor at South Bay is a 4 story, 4000 sf remodeled 1920's farm house located on 35 acres of pasture and trees, one mile from the Puget Sound waterfront and less than 10 minutes from historic downtown Olympia.
The remodel was done in 2005, and resulted in the addition of a large Master Suite, expanded kitchen, and other modern conveniences, however the Manor's roots is as a modest Farm House and accomodates families well, and is not too fancy for children.
Kitchen: For the culinary artists, you will love the large kitchen with double ovens, island, side by side sub zero fridge, two microwaves, 3 sinks and a modest selection of spices to use in preparing your own meals. We provide no food service.
Master: Large Master suite is almost completely windows on 3 sides, providing views of horses grazing in the pastures (seasonally), cherry trees, and Mt. Rainier. Master Bath includes two sinks and huge walk in double shower. Large HDTV plasma tv with DirecTV and DVD library also in Master. Pillowtop CA King Bed is as comfy as they come, and dressed in 800+ count egyptian cotton sheets, and you will never want to leave.
Rooms: In addition to the Master, there is a very large bedroom with a twin bed with memory foam mattress, a full size bed with pillow top mattress, and a Queen size bed with pillowtop. The third bedroom has a full size Antique iron bed with a memory foam topper. All of the above mentioned rooms are on the second floor. On the first floor, there is a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed, twin over full and a twin size roll away. Adjacent to this room is the library, where there is a very comfy Full Size pull out sofa. There is ample room all over the house to set up airbeds. We can provide 11 for no extra charge.
Back Patio: The best year round feature of the patio is the huge commercial grade hot tub! Always hot and ready to relax and soothe our guests. A close second to the hot tub is a fully functional BBQ and kitchen area, complete with 2 sinks, burners, and HUGE Lynx barbecue. There is also a crystal clear 100' lap pool (available Summer only), all surrounded by gorgeous, massive river rock wall.
Living Room: Floor to (vaulted) ceiling stunning river rock fireplace, 60' flat screen t.v. with DVD library and DirecTV, 3 large leather couches to accommodate large groups, (10 fold out chairs also available) ,heated slate floor, open beamed ceilings and ample windows set the scene for the perfect Pacific NW retreat.
Library: Gorgeous original wood floors and white brick fireplace with elegant mantle, well lit sitting area overlooks manicured grounds and horse pastures. Two extremely comfortable overstuffed chairs, the library is well stocked with literary classics and a stereo with ample classical music CDs for complete relaxation.
For the Equestrian Traveler: For those with horse interest, we offer a lovely cross country jump field, outdoor arena, riding trails, and stadium jumps all on site. You may also schedule a riding lesson in advance of your arrival, however there is a 200lb weight limit. We have one horse who can carry 215 lbs., and we will only serve 4 riders at a time for safety reasons. We have horses for complete beginners as well as the seasoned competitor.
Additional Amenities: Grass Volleyball court, 1 acre landscaped by famous arborist, Walking trails where deer, hawks, and eagles are frequent, Amazing Air Conditioning, horses available for riding (200lb weight limit), ping pong, foosball, basketball, tetherball.
Meals: The kitchen at The Manor is a chef's dream. We provide a large selection of pots/pans, and various cooking equipment if you would like to prepare your own meals.
Privacy, Continued: The property is home to about 20 horses, mostly rescues, and a riding academy. It is not only a working horse farm, but also requires maintenance to keep it in tip top shape for renters. The driveway is shared with riding students coming and going on Tues, Thurs, and Sat. and an animal caretaker who will visit 2x a day maximum to feed and water the animals. If you would prefer more privacy, let us know and we will direct riding lessons to an alternate entrance. This does not apply to weddings, as you are paying for the exclusive use of the estate, so all extra activities cease. What is mandatory is pool/spa maintenance daily around 11 am to maintain healthy chemical levels in each, once a week lawn mowing at a reasonable hour and not during any event you have planned, if an animal falls ill, a veterinarian may be called on site, Portapotties that are present during the summer months are serviced each Wed. morning, and the dumpster will be dumped each Thursday around 4pm.

I purchased the estate on Nov. 11, 2007. It served as an overnight girls summer camp from 2007-2010. In 2011 I launched it as a vacation rental, and have really enjoyed sharing this magnificent place, whether it be for an extravagant wedding, long over due family reunion, or gender reveal party, every event has been special to us!
One of the things I love about this house is that it is a peaceful sanctuary, making you feel miles away from the rat race, yet so very close to the uber colorful and artistic waterfront city of Olympia. I was born in Olympia, so if you need any recommendations during your stay, don't hesitate to ask me!
Chaz purchased this estate in 2007
The property serves families and groups so well. It offers something for everyone, whether you want to hold a wine tasting, girls weekend, prayer group, wedding, or baby shower, it is spacious, and offers backdrops of nature or up to date decor in a cozy, comfortable atmosphere.
I absolutely love coming home, no matter where I have been. The serenity of being surrounded by the majestic Mt. Rainier, horses grazing in the rolling pastures, waking up to neighing and whinnies, the smells of lilac, apples, Rosemary...every season has its unique scents! The manor is cozy personified, yet elegant and so very comfortable. I love curling up with a book and cup of tea in the overstuffed library chair on those cold winter evenings....the crackle of the fireplace is one of my favorite sounds. I could go on and on about what I love about being at the Manor, but why bore you. Come see for yourself. I'm certain it will quickly become your home away from home.
Having a great time! First family joined us last night. Nieces love the horses closeby. :-)
