Suquamish is quiet, with beautiful walking around the neighborhoods and down to Sully's, where the food is varied and tasty, then on to the peaceful waterfront. It's an easy drive to Bainbridge, hiking, and small charming towns. The cabin is spacious and super clean, with everything you need. Huge windows let in the light, over a big deck. The new renovation was done with love and imagination, with decor evoking many times and places. Made us smile. The host provided thorough information and responded quickly to texts. The place invites people to enjoy each other's company and take in the beauty.
This is a very unique cabin. The cabin itself is dated other reviews have shown. My wife appreciated the odd art, the custom art, and had stories for each piece. She enjoyed it from the start - it grew on my each day and by the end we were all sad to leave.
The water gets very hot, both in the inside shower and the outside shower on deck - this is a nice change from some places we've stayed. The inside shower was probably my biggest concern - the tub surround adhesive has worn away after so many years so the floor sort of moves on you, it really constrained my movement in there - it's a small bathroom so will be hard to address, but better to do so before it cracks or something.
There is plenty of seating and a nice sized deck that wraps around most of property.
There is also plenty of wood in the garage for indoor or outdoor fire (fireplace and firepit).
Now, the best part of this property. It does have neighbors on each side, but you'd never know it. The trees along both property lines seclude you and you feel like you own an island. The beach is long and is a great shape (not straight, a nice curve that adds an even more secluded feeling. Tide goes out 50' from the break wall at low tide, and all the way up to the wall at high tide - really drastic difference. Low tide is really fun to look for crabs and clams. A caution that I learned the hard way - watch little ones...and big ones too (like me). At low tide once you're off the rock part of the beach there is a sand section - you can sink deep into this, best to walk around, or test out your ability to move if you needed to move in a hurry.
There are kayaks available as well.
Overall this was probably our most unique cabin we've stayed at and one we'll remember the rest of our lives. Our children miss it already and those views and private beach are memories they'll cherish forever.
