General overview

The Vista Sea Lodge is our family’s year round retreat. With our kids grown it is mostly us now (with friends). We use the home year round - it is a great place to curl up by the fire with a book. We plan to make this our primary residence in mid-2022, but have a second home in Sonoma County CA so we are extra flexible. The home has one nearby house, and is in a rural area (15 min to nearest small town, 20-25 minute to larger small town).

The space

Master bedroom with California king bed (183cm) and full bath on main level and two bedrooms - one bedroom with a king bed (193 cm), and another with a full bed (135cm) and a queen bed (153cm). There is also another full bath upstairs. We have a double inflatable bed and a pack and play for your use as well. Living room downstairs is open plan to dining area and kitchen with a wood burning stove (fireplace). Laundry room is on main floor with washer/dryer. There is a wrap around covered deck on three sides of the house. Upstairs there is also an open loft with sectional and TV. Also smaller covered upper deck off the upstairs loft TV room. Stairs to pebble and stone beach for kayak or paddle board access (we have both). There is a flight of steep stairs to access beach. NOTE STAIRS LOST JAN 2022 in storm

Guest access

3 steps down from parking area to access main level with master suite on main level. Two story home. Flight of rather steep stairs to beach.

Notes

House is approximately 2400sq feet or 220sq meters We have Wifi over cellular, so it is not unlimited speed/ downloading. NOTE- storm and high tide with large debris destroyed our beach stairs in Jan 2022. First contractor quoted 2 years to repair. We are working other options but beach access currently gone!

Neighbourhood

One neighboring home in sight, otherwise forest and water (saltwater front on south Puget sound). We are about 3miles by car from a marina with boat launch and moorage, across the water directly is another marina and a state park (1/2 mile). There us abundant wildlife - we occasionally even get orcas, but more commonly porpoise, seals, deer, eagles and such. It is about a 15 minute drive to a large lake (Mason Lake) and 30 minutes to Hood Canal and Alderbrook resort if you long for some fine dining or spa services. Gig Harbor and Olympia are each about a 45 minute drive. Also, you can drive about 45 minutes to Bremerton where a ferry takes vehicles and passengers directly to Seattle - a great way to get there that is an adventure in itself.

Getting to my home

Car is required - no public transit.

Nearest airport

Closest airport is Sea-Tac (SEA- between Seattle and Tacoma) Is about 1hr 40mm drive from house.

Getting around

We are on the Olympic Peninsula with access to Olympic National Park about 45 minutes and many beautiful state parks for hiking and recreation. It is 8 miles to closest town (Allyn with small grocery market, gas station, 2 coffee shops, 2 restaurants, donut shop, and burger stand). We are between two larger small towns Belfair (15 miles - 20 min) and Shelton (20 mile 25-30 min) Gig Harbor is 45 mn and Tacoma 1 hr. Seattle about a 2 hr drive and Portland OR a bit farther.

Feedback

  • Stephanie and Scott are the most amazing people with their home in Grapeview Washington being a peaceful respite on Puget sound that has the comfort of a fine hotel. It is a cool and amazing experience to stay in a log cabin that is really a fabulous getaway with every beautiful detail you can imagine, from comfy chairs indoors and out, to a hot tub overlooking the water, to a lovely table set to enjoy a yummy meal prepared in their well appointed kitchen . Stephanie and Scott baked amazing blueberry muffins for us and left a welcome gift as well. We feel so lucky to have the opportunity to stay in their beautiful home and explore Puget Sound, and the historic towns that are in close proximity to Grapeview. If you have a chance to connect with Scott and Stephanie, consider yourself very lucky indeed. They are the most wonderful hosts and as guests , they leave my home better than they find it, With Scott and Stephanie's homes, you will have unforgettable experiences and tender loving care. They are super neat and responsible and exude refinement.
