We have a couple of sit on top single Kayaks on hand that are free for our guests to use during their stay. In addition, we have life jackets and paddles.The beach access is from the property, and the bay is quite calm, so it's possible to Kayak year round.

Title

The World's Most Scenic Ferry Rides

Washington State Ferry

Seattle's island-clogged Puget Sound makes ferry travel to and from Seattle a way of life. It’s no surprise that Washington State Ferry, part of the Washington State Department of Transportation, is the largest ferry fleet in the United States, and the third largest operator in the world, carrying more than 23 million passengers a year. For visitors, the breathtakingly gorgeous commute to the Kitsap Peninsula, where you can stroll the waterfront, dine in style, tour a vineyard, or rent a bike is a must.

The Kitsap Peninsula lies in the heart of Puget Sound, and is surrounded by over 300 miles of saltwater shoreline and located between the Olympic and Cascade Mountain ranges in Washington State. Kitsap offers miles of accessible shoreline, world-class golf courses, an eclectic collection of communities and endless recreational, cultural and scenic discoveries.

Many restaurants, amenities, and attractions are within a few minutes of the house.

Incredible View!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't express how truly beautiful the setting was at Oyster Bay Manor. The home was incredible and the grounds and views were breathtaking. It's everything and more that the website portrays it to be. The owners met us at the house upon our arrival and gave us the complete tour of the home and the grounds. They were wonderful by the way, very kind and helpful. The house was immaculate and we were afforded every accommodation. I would recommend this home to everyone. Whether there's only two of you or an entire family, everyone will enjoy this house.

Beautiful view. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five loved our stay. Rod made sure to personally show us the property. Photos are spot on. We are active folks who do not mind stairs or a walk down a beautiful path at all. Kitchen accessories were great. Every question we had was answered professionally ahead of time, during and after our stay. We loved the ferry ride to Seattle. A great adventure every day!

Quite Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our stay went off without a hitch, I didn't realize thru the descriptions how much character the home really had. It's located in a very convenient area and right on the water. I would stay here again.

Lovely house on the water

  • 4 of 5

The property was tidy and in very good repair. The picture window was lovely, as were the grounds. The location was easy access to the Bremerton area. The housekeeper who met us upon arrival was friendly and professional, and made excellent recommendations for the local area.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The home was clean, comfortable and beautiful. We had a full house so meal times were a bit tricky as the eating area is best suited for four people but there was a table on the deck so we could dine outdoors as well. The view was beautiful. We had small children in our party so the stairs and decor presented a bit of a challenge. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely recommend this home!

Great relaxing house with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast! We enjoyed the house very much!  The house was very comfortable for our party of six ladies. We felt safe and enjoyed our private lake views in our quiet neighborhood. The town was great, we loved the coffee shops and had everything we needed.

We enjoyed going into Seattle on  Thursday and Friday and visited The Pike Place Market which was fantastic!

We received a little bit of rain on Saturday but not much to stop the fun; we were able to go to the wineries about 20 min from the house and enjoyed the winery Eleven the best.

Our favorite restaurant for the whole trip was the Boat Shed... glad that it was in Bremerton! 

Thanks again for your warm hospitality!

Location

Car: necessary

Our central location is excellent! We're just 17 miles West of downtown Seattle. One can take the local commuter ferry which is just 5 minutes from the house. It's free to walk on from the Kitsap side, (you can also drive on) and leaves typically once an hour from 5am thru midnight. A great way to reach downtown, the ferry with a cafe and WiFi on board, provides a relaxing, and authentic Seattle experience. The panoramic views from the ferry of downtown Seattle as you arrive are definitely not to be missed. You'll arrive in downtown Seattle at pier 52 in about 50 minutes and be within walking distance of most of Seattle's major attractions such as Pike place Market, Safeco Field, Century Link Field, Space Needle, Waterfront Park etc.

Update: New Fast Ferry Service to heart of Downtown Seattle (Pike Place Market area) in about 25 minutes starts July 2017!!

The ferry is just an option, you can also drive directly to Seattle via Hwy I-5 in just under an hour.

It typically takes a day or two to see the downtown attractions. Thereafter, there are a number of interesting quaint historic town and attractions within a 15 to 30 minute drive of the house that are definitely worth a visit if you're spending more then a day or two in the Seattle area. They include Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium, Museum of Glass, Maritime Museum etc... Historic towns of Poulsbo, Port Gamble, and Port Townsend. Leavenworth, Whidbey Island, the National Parks of Mount Rainier, and Olympic National Park are also just a day drive away from the house. Vancouver and Victoria, BC Canada are also possible day trips from the house
