This lovely year round home is just a few hours drive and a short ferry ride from Seattle. Located in the sunbelt of the Washington State Peninsula, on the Straits of Juan De Fuca on a long strip of sandy beach, natural beauty abounds. The views from the front and back side of the home are spectacular and include the Olympic Mountain Range, wetlands with many rare species of birds, the Straits of Juan De Fuca, Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse with Victoria B.C. in the distance, Mount Baker, the San Juan Islands and Whidbey Island.
There are many options for great walks and bike rides, as well as kayaking and hiking in the area.
The beach house is a year round pleasure as well. Summers speak for themselves, but imagine winter storms in the great room, waves crashing outside! A crackling fire in the fireplace. Winter walks on a windy day.The home offers several great places to curl up and read a book or play a game, and holidays are especially memorable in this setting!
Great Room Plus: Having both a family room and great room, with pocket doors that can be closed for privacy, allows the home to accommodate large parties. It also offers a feeling of intimacy for smaller parties. The family room and eating space have excellent views, and they connect well with the kitchen to for easy conversation between the spaces. The home was architecturally designed for flexibility, so it feels gracious and intimate at the same time.
Views and Beach: With 200 feet of sandy beach front, the views are amazing, and from almost every room. You can see four light houses and Victoria B.C. in the distance at night. Your day view is 360 degrees. It includes the Olympic Mountain Range as a back drop to the wetlands on one side, and the Straits of Juan De Fuca, the Dungeness Spit and Lighthouse, Mt. Baker, Whidbey Island, and miles of beach on the other. Bald Eagles 'hang out' in number (we've counted up to 17 together at one time) on the beach at low tide. The home includes two large decks. The front deck is a great place to sit and view the mountains and soak up the afternoon sun, and the back deck overlooks the beach.

About Diane Sessler
The beach house is a family vacation get away owned by my sister, her family and myself and my family. We spend time there on a regular basis, which we believe makes the house feel more like a home vs a rental. We love the diversity of the Peninsula, the sandy walking beach steps away from the home, the views and the peaceful atmosphere.
Diane Sessler purchased this House in 1999

Bird watchers paradise
Fantastic house in a fantastic location! The views were amazing, with the marsh and mountain views to the south, and the Dungeness lighthouse and Mt. Baker to the north. At low tide, we saw hundreds of birds out foraging--brants, wigeons, black-bellied plovers, sanderlings, dunlin, and a pair of black oystercatchers.
The kitchen was very well equipped. Certainly the best view EVER for washing dishes!
The owners are wonderful hosts--this house has everything you need for a perfect beach retreat. Our family has voted this as the best ever vacation house. Thank you! We can't wait to come again!
We took our daughter and family to this wonderful home for the weekend. It's a beautiful home in a beautiful location. We enjoyed beach combing with the grand kids ages 6 & 2. The home is beautifully decorated, fully furnished with comfy beds and a closet full of games & toys for all ages. We made 2 fires in the fireplace so we're toasty warm while the wind blew and rain came through. It was April after all. Do not miss the Olympic Game Farm while in the area. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Diane and family. We will be back.
For Light Lovers!
4th time for our group to gather in this lovely, light-filled home! The kitchen has everything, the living room is comfy and spacious with wraparound views of the water, and the setting is perfect. We'll be back!
Thank you for your review!
Very nice well equipped house with wonderful view.
Right on the water!! Plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the view.
Great place for a vacation and Great Communication from the owners
The Beach House was the perfect location to check out the north end of the peninsula. The beach house was centrally located to many activities that we spent the week doing. Dungeness Spit, Port Townsend, Port Angles, Discovery Trail, North Side of Olympic National Park.
House had everything we needed from the Kitchen to the Sunrises on the bay. Can't say enough about the owner communication before and after our stay.
Will be looking to stay here on our next visit to the peninsula.

The Olympic Peninsula is a diverse and beautiful region . Hurricane Ridge, and the Olympic Mountain Range & National Park offer hiking and spectacular vistas.
