Beautiful property, perfect for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Arrived here in the first week of January for a much needed relaxing weekend. Stayed with a group of girlfriends, 7 to be exact. There is tons of room here. The yard is gigantic. Great for a get-away of playing cards, drinking wine, reading and talking. Highly recommended, you won't regret it!

July 4th weekend stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had stayed at the Kingston House over July 4th weekend and had a wonderful time. The house is beyond stunning and the property breathtaking. My daughter and her friend, and our Aussie, had a fabulous time exploring the grounds and spent hours outside the lush, well-maintained, and vast property playing frisbee, catch, and other games. The house had all one would want for a stress free family vacation. It was clean, beautifully decorated, completely stocked, had luxurious amenities, and was quiet and serene. We explored nearby Kingston Waterfront park for the farmers market and July 4th parade. We also drove to nearby downtown Poulsbo which is a very charming town with nice galleries and restaurants. We bought a painting and had a nice dinner. We were also excited to return to the home and relax as it was so peaceful. We built a fire and sat around the fire late into the evening.

The owner/manager is extremely nice and accommodating. She offered ideas and suggestions for things to do and was very accessible for anything we needed. Communication was great and instructions were easy to follow and understand. We have previously stayed at another of the owner's property on Bainbridge Island and were just as satisfied and pleased. I would not hesitate to stay at her properties again in the future and will likely do so!!!!

Previously I stayed at another property belonging to the owner and since I had a wonderful time in the fall. I decided to try this rental property for a change of scenery. Sycamore Hills exceeded my expectations! From the lush landscape to the spacious home, I truly wished this was my home all year! If you are looking for a great place to have a family vacation or retreat, I highly recommend it!

There is a pond on the property and walking trail, I spent morning coffee on the wraparound deck. It was a much needed relaxing vacation. Also, if you are bringing a large family or group, there are plenty of bedrooms...which can be hard to find with some rental properties.

This property is also tucked away from the main road which has great access to shopping, dining and the ferry.

Thanks again Kinam!

We felt so rejuvenated by the incredible natural setting!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for the wonderful time in the peaceful and tranquil Sycamore Retreat! We felt so rejuvenated by the incredible natural setting, the morning light reflecting on the pond and not to mention the gorgeous home... We loved the feeling that we were far from civilization, and yet, we also appreciated being a couple of minutes from the Kingston Farmers Market, waterfront, marina and Kingston ferry and other conveniences! Sycamore is truly a special place and we will be back!

Thanks for being so easy and fun to work with, Kinam!

Our Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Sycamore Retreat was absolutely the best place we could have stayed at in Kingston. We had children and adults with us and this place was magnificent. The children were free to run and play outside and there was so much room everyone had there space. The Retreat is beautiful. The pictures do not even do it justice. The place was stocked full of everything you could think of which made our shopping list a lot smaller. The place was clean and very well maintained. Kinam answered all my questions and gave me lots of good recommendations. I would recommend this place to everyone. It was the best family vacation, and if we ever get back to Kingston I would definitely stay again.

Everything we hpoed for- and more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just got married at the Sycamore in Sept. I have to say it was the most amazing experience, and the entire stay was beyond anything we had hoped for. This would be a GREAT place for a family reunion or small wedding. The rooms are so spacious, and the house so well laid out-we hardly knew we had 10 people staying through the weekend. The home is beautifully decorated, and gave us a very upscale, but "at home" Zen kind of feel. The patio/fountain area is very serene and the perfect place for morning coffee, while the quaint out-door jet pool is very relaxing set in a little garden alcove. The main bedroom suite is just a dream to stay in, w/ the adjoining master bathroom having a double head shower, and deep jetted bath.

The land surrounding the home is beautifully maintained and consists of wandering paths around a nice sized pond, acres of grass, and gorgeous trees. Perfect for picnic's and nature walks.

I noticed there is no hand-rail around their wood decking, which might be an issue if you had toddlers, as the house does sit on top a bit of a hill. That wasn't an issue for us. It was nothing but good times at a great place, owned by wonderful people. I highly recommend this home to you!
