We would like to invite you to spend a relaxing vacation in our home. We currently live in the house 5 months of the year and we rent it the other 7 months. Completely furnished and includes everything you can think of. Downstairs you will find the master suite w/full bath and a child's room with a separate full bath. Upstairs is another large bedroom with a queen size bed and a half bath.
The house has geothermal heat and air conditioning. We also have a library of a few hundred VHS tapes available for your use. There is also cable and Wi-Fi and a stereo. There is a laundry room with a washer and dryer. There are also some of my son's toys (4 years old) made available for your children to play with.
The backyard has a brick patio, gas grill, and fire pit. If you have children, there is a wooden play set. The backyard is completely fenced in for small children.
Stay here and you will want to return year after year!

My husband and I are now retired and we spend the summer months in the state of Washington on the Olympic Peninsula. We also have a 6 year old son whom we will be homeschooling starting this year with kindergarten. While we are out west, we wanted to be able to share our home with others while trying to earn extra income to supplement our retirement. We home that anyone visiting our home gets as much enjoyment out of it as we do.
We purchased our home in 2008 and did a major remodel on this house. We took the then 3 car garage and built a new master suite and master bath and then added a new mud room and new garage on the other side of the house. We also completely rebuilt the kitchen, had all new flooring installed and refinished the hardwood flooring in the dining room and living room. We updated most of the wiring and also installed new geothermal heating and air conditioning. In the end we realized that we should have just built a new house, but at least we have the house exactly the way we want it (more or less).
