About Pat Lantz
Our home on Kilisut Harbor was built by our parents in 1969, in fulfillment of their retirement dream.. Now the extended family...children, grandchildren and great grandchild... are fortunate to be able to continue to enjoy this very special place in all seasons. A small scale house by design, it incorporates the beauty of the site at every angle and promotes indoor/outdoor living. It is quintessential Pacific Northwest. No wonder we love it so. We are 6 generations of Washingtonians. Its a getaway place in winter and a festival of activities in the summer: baseball in the meadow, an impromptu golf course, good moorage for a boat, fun on the beach, crab boils, songs round the campfire. In any season a beachwalk on driftwood-strewn Marrowstone Point is a must where we search for the latest treasures high tide has brought. You will find us outdoors, year 'round, and always outfitted in the uniform of Puget Sound country: fleece, goretex and and waterproof boots. We know this place to be rare and priceless, we are pleased to share it with others who will treasure it as we do.
Why Pat Lantz chose Marrowstone Island
Island ambiance, Ft. Flagler, protected water, access to cruising waters north and south, gateway to the Olympic Peninsula, Olympic National Park and the ferry to Victoria. Lively cultural scene in Pt. Townsend. Sense of history. Seattle within reasonable distance by ferry.

Beautiful vacation home!!!
The location is perfect! The house was well designed to take in views of Puget Sound and the natural setting. We enjoyed seeing grazing deer at the front of the house and racoons digging in the sand at low tide for their breakfast. The house has a lot of character and everything you could possibly need in a home. Bring a good book and DVD's for evenings. Pat is a super hostess! The house has been owned by the same family for 2 generations; once there, one feels like an extension of their family! Thank you for a delightful and relaxing stay! Nancy & Ed
Wonderful Marrowstone Island Retreat
My mom and I spent our annual Fall trip at this amazing property on Kilisut Harbor and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay. The house is situated beautifully and we had a hard time dragging ourselves away from the incredible water views. We saw seals, otters, deer, raccoons, and lots of birds. The house was well-stocked and was very comfortable and welcoming. Definitely feels like someone's loved home, rather than a rental. If you can drag yourself away from the views, there's lots to do in the area and we made trips to Port Townsend (don't miss the Farmers Market, if you get the chance) and Poulsbo (Sluy's Bakery). On the island, Fort Flagler is a great park to visit and do not miss the Nordland General Store (try the Whidbey Island Ice Cream Co. bars) The Olympic Peninsula is my happy place and this house manages to capture everything I love about the area in one place. It's a gem!
Home away from home
My husband and I were lucky enough to score this spot for our honeymoon for a whole week! I can’t imagine anything more perfect! It was beyond cozy and completely stocked with everything you would need! The views are next level, the grounds couldn’t be more beautiful and peaceful, and the wild life visitors are immense. We were so excited to see countless hummingbirds up close while relaxing on the back patio, deer every morning on the front yard, raccoons on the beach at night, a few seals or river otters swimming off shore. The beach combing was great right on the property! Fort Flagler had great beach combing and we gave a good effort of fishing with just a few little fish we caught and released. We really loved taking a day trip into Port Townsend for the annual boat festival and we did the hike from North Beach to glass beach to collect some sea glass. It was a long 8 mile hike there and back but totally worth it! We ate out a few times which we enjoyed every time! A short drive to Port Hadlock and Scampi and Halibuts was yummy! Breakfast in Port Townsend at Blue Moose Cafe is a must!!! We took the bikes to Mystery Bay and it was a great ride, we attempted going to Fort Flagler but we aren’t bikers and it was a little harder than we expected and turned around lol. The bikes work great with good working helmets. One afternoon we took the canoe out and fished from the Kilisut Harbor without any success as expected but it was beautiful and peaceful! The canoes and kayaks are in great working condition with an endless supply of life jackets! One of my favorite little touches at this property was the well stocked rain boots and rain jackets, we thankfully used the boots for beach combing and the house slippers for staying clean and cozy inside! Thank you so much Pat for offering your home, we couldn’t be happier with our stay and looking forward to coming back next year!
The experience was and Pat very helpful.
The location was good and convenient to go to many sights near the the house.
There are not enough words to capture the "perfection" of this home and Pat Lantz. We just felt blessed the entire visit. The natural beauty, the island (Nordland Gen. Store ice cream), no small detail overlooked in the home, soo clean...The property is not a rental but a home you have been invited into. One felt Pat was the friend next door vs the property owner. It was my Dad's 72nd Bremerton High School reunion and this location with all "its magic" was absolutely perfect as my parents had traveled from NC for this reunion. They LOVED it as my husband and I did.
Winnie the Pooh probably said it the best, :How lucky I am to have something that makes saying good bye so hard."
Thank you Pat for making this trip incredibly special.
In season pick berries and apples, two public boat launches on the island, birdwatching (Audubon schedules seasonal birding tours to island,) amazing stargazing in night sky unmarred by artificial lights. Ft. Flagler, a destination state park on island along with two waterfront county parks.
