|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
'Herron House' is located on a private island in the South Puget Sound area. Visiting the island includes a ten minute ride on the 'Charlie Wells' from the ferry dock at Lakebay, as the island is only accessable by private ferry. Although the peace and tranquility of the island may make you feel as if you are a million miles away from the rest of the world, in fact you are only a short distance. You can take day trips to Seattle as it is just over an hour away. The island is about a thirty minute drive from the town of Gig Harbor, Tacoma, and Port Orchard. It is a very small island and there is no store, so pack what you will need to relax and enjoy.
Experience the tranquility of island life. Enjoy breathtaking panoramic views while you watch bald eagles soaring over head. 'HerronHouse sits atop a hundred foot bluff that gives you wonderful views that go on for miles. This newly constructed two thousand square foot home is the perfect island retreat.
If you are looking for a quiet and serene spot to relax (at least when we were there in late September) do not hesitate to book this. Highly recommend kayaking around the Island, it is quite easy. Owners are wonderful and so very easy to work with !
The Davies house was more than expected. The view, the surroundings, the peace and quiet. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
We had an amazing stay at Jim and Anne's house on a Herron Island. The house is very large and well appointed. The furnishings are top notch and there wasn't a detail missing. The house is perfection and you will not be disappointed.
Bikes and kayaks will have you cruising the island and exploring all there is to offer on this majestic island!
Anything you need has been thought of, so bring your sense of adventure and enjoy a wonderful island adventure with two gracious and caring hosts!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! It was perfectly stocked for lots of cooking and is so well-kept and pretty!
We loved the views, the deer and the crabs! Thank you also for the use of your kayaks!!
We hope to return soon!
My family and I recently stayed at the Herron House. What a delight! The house was beautiful, the view spectacular, everything we needed was provided, the wildlife was entertaining, and the decks outside were comfortable. Actually, this was my second visit to the house this summer. The first was with two friends. Peaceful tranquility with the girls. The second visit was just as fun but in a different way. I got to play with my four grandchildren. We did arts and crafts and read many books, often over and over. My adult children and grandchildren walked the beach to collect rocks and shells, swam, biked, played games, kayaked, and tried the paddle boards. Fun times were had by all which led to many naps. My family wants to make this a yearly tradition. Jim and Anne are amazing hosts, kind, and entertaining. Love their sense of humor! Can’t wait to go back.
I had the opportunity to stay in this beautiful vacation home with the most incredible view. Sitting on the deck with a blanket was probably one of my most favorite parts of my trip. It was truly relaxing and allowed you let go and just enjoy the present. When I wasn't relaxing on the deck, I enjoyed the kayaks and paddle board, walked the island and visited with very nice people, walked the beach and found some shells. I loved that I could be as busy or as relaxed as I wanted.
The Herron House had everything you could possibly need and absolutely beautiful! Anne and Jim did an amazing job making sure I knew where everything was and a binder with other information, including a map, which I used to explore the island.
I am already planning my next trip!
