2 brothers and their wives have owned this property for close to 40 years, but only in 2002 did we build our vacation home. It offers us a unique vacation setting close to our homes in Olympia and Vancouver, WA. We always feel like we are on a special vacation every time we come up here. Walks on the beach or trails along scenic bluffs or through forests make it special. The pool (in summer), tennis courts, picnic areas, boat launches, lagoon, and fire pits on the north spit provide plenty of choice for activity.
