NW COUNTRY/CONTEMPORARY RETREAT BETWEEN THE MOUNTAINS AND THE SEA

Port Angeles House Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

This charming eclectic NW Contemporary home is in the heart of the Olympic Peninsula playland. Sits at the base of the Olympic Mountains with a lovely water view of the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Watch the ships in the harbor, enjoy their lights at night and the lights of Victoria, Canada. This unusual architectural home is full of light with high ceilings and skylights. Professionally decorated with a mix of new and antique furniture for your comfort. New beds and bedding promise you a restful sleep. Huge upstairs master en suite has a French Country feel, plus its own deck to enjoy your morning coffee while you look down on the town of Port Angeles and the busy harbor and watch the sun come up over the Straits of Juan de Fuca and Vancouver Island. Master bath has 7 foot tiled and glass block shower, antique vanity with glass sink, European toilet. Downstairs there is a cozy second bedroom with a single bed and another full bathroom beside it. A loveseat/sleeper sofa in the living room sleeps one. There's even a high chair and an inflatable toddler bed if you have a wee one. A queen inflatable bed is available if needed. Pet door allows small dogs the freedom to run in the fenced yard. Two circular patios, one in the front courtyard and a 'funky' brick one in the back yard (with a firepit), plus a large deck with barbeque and lots of benches and outdoor furniture give you several options for outdoor living. Enjoy picking your own salad fixings, peas, asparagus, garlic, strawberries and raspberries from the garden when in season. Watch TV, videos and CD's while reclining in comfort in the new plush recliner sofa or cuddle up in the cozy loveseat. WiFi included. Brand new stainless kitchen appliances and tiled counter make your meals easy to fix and clean up. A 'starter breakfast kit' awaits you in the fridge should you arrive too late to go grocery shopping. Bring your bikes and enjoy the Discovery Bike Trail which runs from Port Angeles to Port Townsend. The entrance to Olympic National Park and Hurricane Ridge is just across the road. Enjoy skiing and snowboarding or snowshoeing in winter, hiking and picnicking in summer. The deer and marmots are fun to watch as you walk the trails on the top of Hurricane Ridge. There is kayaking, fishing, clamming and many hiking trails for the adventurous. Or shop the area's more than 20 antique and consignment stores, many art galleries and enjoy tasting at the local wineries. The music scene is incredible with multiple venues to choose from nightly and with music from all genres you are guaranteed to find something to your taste, you can even find someplace to dance nearly every night of the week. The Olympic Peninsula has many festivals throughout the year to enjoy, plus a symphony, community choruses, plays, a light opera and other cultural experiences through the local library and community college. Port Angeles has the annual Juan de Fuca Music and Arts Festival, Arts in Action, Crab Festival, Art in Bloom on Mother's Day at the Fine Arts Center a wonderful Marine Center for the kids and the kid in all of us, plus outdoor concerts every Wednesday night on the Pier. There is the Sequim Irrigation Festival in May and the Lavender Festival in summer. Port Townsend has their Rhody Festival and others too, plus lots of art galleries. All 3 cities have Saturday Farmer's Markets. Forks has lots of local happenings, including the ongoing 'Twighlight' tours. Drive to Neah Bay, beachcomb along the way, and visit the exceptional Indian museum and then take your choice of short hikes to the Pacific Ocean beaches. There are so many things to do in this lovely corner of the world you can be as active or as laid back as you like. You can even take the ferry to Victoria, a city unlike any in the USA. You definitely feel like you are in Europe as you stroll the streets of this magical city. A bus will take you out and back to the world famous Butchart Gardens and Butterfly House. After a full day in Victoria you will be happy to return to your cozy and welcoming home away from home, the retreat between the mountains and the sea.

I am a native Washingtonian and have lived in P.A. for 40 years. I raised 3 children and owned several businesses and am now retired. This is the 4th house I have owned, decorated and landscaped and am now working on my 5th. I am an avid gardener and artist and some of the artwork and photography in the home is my original work.

Patricia Wheatley purchased this house in 2007

I have loved and improved this home for 7 years but have met a wonderful man who has asked me to marry him this summer. We have bought a home together and are busy decorating and landscaping it. I am incorrigible when it comes to both!

This home attracted me because of its uniqueness, ceilings of varying heights, some as tall as 24 feet! The layout is also unusual and since I shy away from the 'usual' I just had to have it. It has a wonderful view of the Straits of Juan de Fuca and Vancouver Island. It is close to downtown activities and also within a few minutes of the top of Hurricane Ridge. The yard is small and I have created several very private sitting areas and a small garden I have filled with vegetables and berries. Guests are welcome to pick what they like within season.
