NATURE'S PARADISE! WATERFRONT HOME ON HOOD CANAL! TWO WFRT HOMES SLEEPS 26!!

Brinnon House Rental Photos and Description

Hood Canal Waterfront view of Hood Canal, Dabob Bay, Mt Rainier, and Mt Baker.

This Hood Canal vacation rental is a wonder to behold: Olympic National Park at your back door, and the Dosewallips Wildlife Estuary right in front. You'll see many birds native to the Pacific Northwest including bald and golden eagles, heron, geese, ducks and more. Orca whales, seals with their pups and river otter frequent the waters in front of you and from time to time the Brinnon Elk herd may visit the yard.

A new six-person jetted spa overlooking the water allows you to take it all in while relaxing in warmth and comfort. Large upper and lower decks provide a sweeping view of Hood Canal, Dabob Bay, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker. Private stairs to the beach with a large dock allow you to play, swim, fish or take the provided canoe out for a ride. At low tide, approximately 29 acres of previous oyster farm is available for the picking; and plump juicy oysters are wonderful done on the grill!

Just a short walk down the road is the famous Geoduck Restaurant Lounge, voted #2 'Best Bars in the U.S.' by Esquire Magazine.

The just-remodeled home boasts an amazing 2,830 square feet of beautifully appointed living that can comfortably sleep up to 12 guests. The master bedroom stretches across the entire top floor of the home in a loft style. Additionally, we have outfitted the main floor with an upgraded queen-size sleeper sofa, and we offer a folding-style crib for those traveling with little ones.

We are remodeling a second 5 bedroom home in Brinnon. That new home is called Seal Rock and is 3 miles away from Nature's Paradise. The home sleeps 14 people comfortably in beds and is 3000 square feet. The dining room table seats 12 with 12 matching chairs. The Seal Rock home will be modeled after Nature's Paradise in amenities. Reservations will be starting May 1st, please call the owner Tammy for more information or to make a reservation.

My husband and I bought this home in 2003 for the purpose of retiring early and living there. We're not ready to retire quite yet, and decided that we would really like to share this lovely home and the surrounding beauty with others!

I am proud and happy to say that I have lived in the Puget Sound area my entire life. One of my favorite pastimes is traveling. I have visited every continent, 60 different countries, and taken 37 cruises (so far!). Because I have spent so much time traveling, I truly have a good understanding of guests' needs and wants.

Even though I am happy to have seen so much of the world, I am always grateful to return to an area as gorgeous and diverse as the Pacific Northwest. I could choose anywhere in the world to retire to, but I have chosen Brinnon, Washington on Hood Canal for many reasons. Once you have visited this area, you will see why!

Tammy Kreger purchased this house in 2003

I chose this particular property because of the outstanding sweeping view of Hood Canal and Dabob Bay. There is also a great view of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker.

My husband and I are big seafood fans and love all of the wonderful shellfish available to pluck from our beach. We also like to take advantage of the private dock for setting out to shrimp, crab and fish.

We can't imagine a more beautiful environment to vacation in. It truly is 'Nature's Paradise!'; so we hope you'll come and enjoy it for yourselves!

The 29-acre privately-owned beach is covered in the tastiest, most plump oysters on the canal (this particular area used to be an oyster farm). The tidelands also have many species of clams including butter, horse, and geoduck clams. Some of the best dungeness crabbing can be done directly in front of the home.

You are welcome to take the provided boat off the dock and put some crab pots in it to take out.You can simply paddle out a short distance and place the pots for fetching later in the day. My husband and I do so and catch our limits easily! Some of the best Hood Canal Spotted Shrimp are also caught in the waters in front of the home.

It is also fascinating to watch the nuclear submarines practice in the waters out front of the home 2 or 3 times a week. Bird watching is another fun and relaxing experience from our 1,600 square-foot upper and lower decks, and from the dock.

Often I enjoy watching the Brinnon Roosevelt elk herd graze in the Dosewallips pasture lands right from my decks. Sometimes the elk actually come to my yard and graze on my landscaping!

We went as a family, kids grandkids and seniors. We saw wildlife, gathered clams and oysters. Hot tub, camp fire. It was great! Both my adult children said they would rent it again. You only need to bring your clothes, food and good cheer to have a great time.

Coming from England Natures Paradise is the prefect place to relax and recover from the long journey. We've stayed here numerous times and always look forward to going back. The view's spectacular, seafood abundant, wonderful hosts, and the house is clean with everything you need.

I would highly recommend treating your family to time at Natures Paradise and know I can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: I appreciate my return guests so much and it is an honor to have you travel all the way from England to enjoy Nature's Paradise. It is our goal to have amenities there to use for our guests that travel by airplane. It would be very hard to bring with you things like crab pots, shovels, buckets, etc. on the airplane. It is wonderful that you had such a wonderful time in December. Any time of the year is great to visit our special home and property. Thank you for coming to our home again. You are welcome anytime.

Perfect Pacific Northwest Experience

This was our second visit with friends to Nature's Paradise. Once again, we took advantage of all the amenities for catching and cooking Dungeness crabs and oysters for a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner! The owners had refinished the downstairs nicely since our last visit, and all four couples had their own bedrooms with comfortable King Size beds. We could watch eagles, ducks and seals through the spotting scope and binoculars (and hummingbirds up close!) on the main floor, and had room to spare around the large dining room table (also with a view). We called the owners when the stereo and can opener didn't work, and they came that same evening with replacements. They provided directions to a beautiful waterfall nearby, which we would not otherwise have known about. A couple of us kayaked from a boat launch down the road; others walked at the state park. I was impressed by the recycling and compost options. The wood stove (wood provided) made the main floor more comfortable, and we took advantage of the hot tub. If I were to change anything it would be to add more reading lights.

Owner's Response: We are so honored and pleased that you stayed with us again to bring in the New Years. Your New Years Eve dinner sounds wonderful, fresh caught Dungeness Crabs caught by you and your friends. Fresh picked oysters right from our beach. What a memorable New Years celebration. It is wonderful that everyone enjoyed our improvements to our home and were very comfortable. Maybe next year you will want to try our newest waterfront vacation rental home, Seal Rock which is a short 3 miles away from Nature's Paradise. The home also has 5 bedrooms, 135' of low bank waterfront, sleeps 14 people comfortably, and has the same amenities as Nature's Paradise. It will be pretty easy for you to launch your kayaks right from our Seal Rock home. You are most welcome to come back anytime to either home. Thank you, Tammy Kreger
