Well equipped, comfortable house, an hour from Seattle by ferry
After teaching for thirty four years and maintaining cars, airplanes and properties for even longer, we have retired to a life of creating 'home'(s)along the west coast and sharing with others. Our Port Orchard home is a keeper! When we are not working on a home, in a yard, or on the computer, we are enjoying grandchildren, traveling, reading,walking with friends or 'workng out' at the YMCA.
Lorraine purchased this House in 1986
Why Lorraine chose Port Orchard
We love the ambience, especially the fresh air, forests, clear skies and the natural beauty of the Puget Sound area. It is a great place to take a deep breath, relax,enjoy nature, and explore the wealth of outdoor activities. Being removed from the huslte and bustle of major cities, yet still having easy access to Seattle and other favorites like Gig Harbor, Silverspring, Tacoma, and British Columbia has been an important consideration for us.
What makes this House unique
One chief advantage of staying here is the price: It is very inexpensive for what you get. Also, access to downtown Seattle via the ferry is simple, yet pleasurable with fantastic scenery along the way. Best of all the house is clean, comfortable, well equipped and very peaceful.

Home away from home!
I was at Lorraine‘s property for about two months and I totally enjoyed the stay it’s such a serene peaceful place very relaxing I would definitely stay there again. Lorraine is a very giving and caring owner she will do anything to make sure your stay exceeds your expectations. I will miss the daily visits from the deer. Thank you Lorraine for all you’re hospitality and working with me on my requests.
All was good except there was no cable and Golf Channel
Wave Cable has been called the system upgraded.
The house was well located and quiet. There were no functional smoke detectors/fire alarms or fire extinguisher that we could find. Either the batteries were not in or they were dead. This worried us. There was a black mold smeared on the bathroom ceiling.
For the safety of our guests, a fire extinquisher is kept in the laundry room. All batteries have been replaced and mold removed.
Perfect, clean home
The place was perfect! Everything we needed was there. It was nice and clean. It was nice having a local place when visiting family.
Thanks for your business. We’d love to host you again if you ever want to return! Lorraine

Great home...Would stay again
Lorraine's home is absolutely fantastic if you are looking for a place to stay with family or just looking for a place to get away from the chaos. On multiple occasions we say deer in the area. Every morning and night you can hear seals from the inlet. The house is fully stocked and a pleasant stay
Thanks for the wonderful review. We hope you can come back sometime.
