My wife and are are both Socialworkers in Seattle where we live with our two children, a dog and 2 cats. We like to travel, yet our favorite destination tends to be Harstine Island.
Daniel Johnson purchased this house in 2004
I grew up in nearby Shelton. I have fond memories of coming to Harstine Island with my twin brother and Dad to look at property - there was no bridge at that time, just a small ferry. We purchased the land 25 years ago because of the natural beauty and my love of the water. We decided to build a family cabin where we could spend time with family and friends. We took two years to build it working with my retired high school geometry teacher as the general contractor - it was a labor of love. We finished the cabin in 2004.
The stunning view of the cove through the trees, relaxing in the hot tub, cooking in the well equipped kitchen, playing games in front of the fireplace , ping pong, watching movies, kayaking, sailing, fishing and walks to the marina are among our top 10 favorites at the cabin.
The home was fantastic. We loved the three levels, as we had three families, so each family got their own level with a bathroom which was nice. The ping pong table was a huge hit. As was the hot tub. I really liked that there was no TV on the main level to distract from meal time. We also enjoyed the kayaks and canoes. And all the necessary items in the kitchen. We liked it all and would recommend it! The only bummer, which we talked to the owners about and they apologized for, was that they had just had the septic tank pumped so there was an odor outside, but I'm sure that is not a common occurrence.
House is big (was great for 7 people) and beautifully decorated. Kitchen has everything we needed. Whole family loved kayaks and boat!
As a party of ten including teenagers and young children, this house was perfect. It was clean and very well stocked. The boats, crab pots, dock, hot tub, large dining table, and fire pit were major pluses. Daniel was wonderful and easy to work with. We had a wonderful family weekend. We highly recommend this property.
This house was perfect for our summertime family reunion! Two living areas (main floor and downstairs) provided ample space for a variety of activities. Indoors there are many board games, a craft room, CDs and DVDs, and a ping pong table. The kitchen is large so several people can cook at the same time. The owners have thoughtfully supplied multiple water-craft with life vests for use off the private dock, and plenty of fishing poles and folding chairs. The children in our group were 10 and 12 years of age so were able to safely use the stairs and dirt path down to the water. As a special bonus, everyone delighted in the wildlife; a mother deer and babies, a racoon family, and two rabbits, seen outside the home. We would highly recommend this rental for vacations or retreats.
Our family had a wonderful time in this beautiful home. The house was impeccably clean, and we fully enjoyed the location - who could ask for anything more than all those gorgeous trees (complete with very talkative squirrels) and being so close to the water. We used the paddle board and kayaks and explored the cove. We loved watching the mother swallow flitting in and out of her nest on the dock. The hot tub was wonderful. We visited the Wild Felid center and were all impressed with the large collection of felines that they care for. We would definitely go back, and would highly recommend this location to anyone for a restful, fun vacation.
We enjoyed a multigenerational Memorial Day weekend in this beautiful home with SO much to occupy us, rain or shine. The kitchen is so well stocked, the rooms are appointed so wonderfully (artwork everywhere!) and there are so many extras you can't get bored. We kayaked on the sound every day (life jackets and paddles abound) exploring the cove and its plentiful starfish, we walked to the marina for a snow cone, we visited the Wild Felid Advocacy center (a TRULY MUST see a mere 5 min. drive away), we hot tubbed, and enjoyed the stars from the dock. The children in our group adored the craft area and the quiet getaway downstairs for reading or watching your favorite movie is just excellent. The house is super clean and in terrific repair. The correspondence with the owner was very pleasant and helpful. I can't recommend this home highly enough!
Call ahead for a private tour of the Wild Felid Advocacy Center of Washington. Washington's Wild Cat Sanctuary housing 40 cats from a Cougar to an African Leopard - just two miles away. Call (360)427-4466.
