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 late 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 queen bed and full bath on main level and two bedrooms (one with king bed, the other with a full bed and a twin bed) and another full bath upstairs. We also have a double inflatable bed and a pack and play. Living room downstairs open plan to dining area and kitchen with a wood burning stove (fireplace) Laundry room on main floor and wrap around deck. Upstairs loft with sectional and TV. Also upper deck off 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.

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.

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 30-40 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 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.

Member description
SEEKING EUROPE JULY 2023 AND NEW ZEALAND NOV 2023 We are a couple approaching 60 and heading into retirement with plans to travel more. We may occasionally have our two adult children (both married — one in Seattle the other Boston) join us if schedules coordinate. Scott is a scientist, Stephanie is a lawyer. Stephanie speaks passable French and Spanish. We love following the Tour de France in July - particularly in the Pyrenees and the Alps.
