Why Darnell Foskett chose Hood Canal

This property has been a popular scuba diving destination for over 20 years. It is within hours of Seattle and Portland Oregon. The hood canal is known world wide for its large pacific octopus, Wolf Eels, Crab, squid etc... The canal is unique that most diving is done by shore and the weather has never cancelled a dive. BEYOND the diving it is a great location at the foot of the Olympic mountains. The house is located north of Shelton but less than an hour from Olympia, Washington. You can choose to go hiking, kayaking, crabbing, fishing, golfing or relaxing at a local casino, all within an hours drive. It is the perfect place to get away, without having to drive for hours. You are able to change your mind or plans with little effort. Most everyone in your group can be accommodated. This house has grown from a divers paradise to a group getaway paradise.

What makes this house unique

The house was a farm house built sometime in the 1920's (?) so the locals say. Nobody knows for sure. The house still boasts its unique character - cedar walls, long front porch and a barn on site. The house is solid wood on the upper floors. When you first walk in you see the exposed cedar ceiling and wood floors. We have updated the property to modern conveniences, without losing the charm of the 1920's farm house. The windows are updated vinyl, but were built to replace the original wood windows with leaded glass. You get the charm of an old farm house by the water with modern day conveniences.

Owner's Response: Great to hear we are meeting our goal of providing a comfortable and spacious home for travelers to the Hood Canal! Many a SCUBA diver has begun their passion for being under the sea just a few steps from the front door.

Best place to stay for a dive trip to Hood Canal

  • 5 of 5

The house is well equipped and super comfy. Large flat screen TVs, lots of DVDs, great kitchen, great dining area for the group to sit together and talk about the day's diving. An extremely well designed dive shed with place for at least 10 divers to gear up, a heated drying room for the gear, a hot tub, the list goes on and on and on.

Oh, and there is a really nice dive park right in front of the house (currently with a GPO and a wolf eel in residence), and many other of the Hood Canal Western Shore highlight dive sites are close by (e.g. Sund Rock). The local dive shop is literally within walking distance. It's simply perfect for divers.

The owner is amazing to work with - all I can say is that I LOVE this place. Can't wait to be back.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I love the Yellowhouse! I have spent literally dozens of weekends here - it is always incredible.

If you are in Hoodsport for a diving class (of any level) I couldnt recommend this place more. There is room for the entire group, there is a large gear locker and warming room (a must this time of year for the wetsuit divers!) The warming room is a particular favorite, it is both a warm place between dives and perfect for drying the gear. No cold wetsuit to put on. The house itself is well furnished and very nice, it feels very "homey" and has everything you need for the weekend. And also having your own private dive site for training makes everything far more convenient logistically speaking. There is also plenty of parking and the large rinse tanks make cleaning the gear at the end a breeze.

If you are fun diving with some friends it is also a great option! Like with the classes, you have everything to yourself. The dive site itself is good, there are navigational lines along the bottom making navigation a breeze. There are a lot of different sunken structures to attract life and the bottom is not sensitive. Actually have seen a few PGOs and wolf eels swimming around outside there. The house is also not far from incredible sites like Sund Rock and Octopus Hole.

All and all, whether you are there for fun or training - nowhere else in Hoodsport comes close to what you get from the Yellowhouse. Nothing but great things to say about the staff as well, ive taken classes through them, rented the house, bought gear, gotten gear serviced, and received literally hundreds of airfills. Ive never had a bad experience from any facet of the business and happily support them every chance I get.

Great place to relax and enjoy nature as you build community

with friends and family. Many water activities as well as hiking nearby and strolling through the shops, winery and distillery in town. Some of the best Scuba Diving locations in the Pacific Northwest including the Sund Rock Marine life preserve. A short drive south into Shelton you can explore a historic logging town filled with antique shops. Sample fresh local oysters and clams at Hamma Hamma and Taylor Shellfish.

For those who like to gamble there are 2 Casinos nearby.
