The homes in the neighborhood are well maintained and built around the award-winning McCormick Woods Golf Course with beautiful walking trails meandering throughout the golf course and surrounding forest. We provided relatively inexpensive, yet luxurious home base in a beautiful, peaceful setting. Length of stay flexible and the cost is very reasonable.
The open space kitchen/family/great room with a breakfast nook provides comfy seating for six, skylights, a fireplace and 60' HDTV. The fully equipped kitchen has quality appliances, dishes, and cookware. The laundry room with washer and dryer is just off the kitchen. From the kitchen, you have easy access to a covered deck with barbeque and picnic table against a forested backdrop and waterfall.
The master bedroom suite has excellent separation and privacy; a super comfortable king size bed; a substantial tile shower; a jetted tub under a skylight; and two walk-in closets. The second and third bedrooms, located on the opposite side of the house, have comfortable queen size beds and share a second bathroom. The beds are freshly made; towels and hair dryer are available for your convenience.
The formal dining room will seat eight people. China and stemware are provided. Arched windows, high ceilings, skylights, two fireplaces, indirect lighting, and views of waterfall and forest create a unique, tranquil feeling throughout the house.
A covered deck, flower gardens, slate patio, and pathways enhance the exterior living. Deer, rabbits, and squirrels are frequent visitors adding to the enjoyment of the natural setting. As a bonus, there are dolls, and toys in the closet for children and two bikes in the garage.
While immersing yourself in the beauty of nature, you can still be close to the amenities of suburban living. Enjoy a meal, entertainment, or wedding reception at the McCormick Woods Clubhouse Restaurant and Bar. Or, drive down the Port Orchard waterfront for dinner at Amy's on the Bay. Live theater at the Western Center for Fine Arts, located near the Marina is fun, as well as browsing antique stores and the Log Cabin Museum. Beauty salons, gyms, movie theaters, health care, and even the Kitsap County Court House and Administrative Offices are near-by, so you don't have to go far for anything you might want.
Nearby Bremerton offers a beautiful downtown Harborside area which includes fine dining, coffee shops and the Marina with many permanent ships as well as visiting boaters. Enjoy a stroll through the Arts District and visit the Naval Museum, Fountain Park, and the Memorial Plaza, all near the Bremerton Ferry Terminal.
According to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the best shrimping and crabbing in the area is along the Hood Canal. Gear anglers trolling out of boats will find good Coho, pink and Chinook salmon fishing throughout the sound. Cutthroat salmon travel along the beaches. To discover the many hidden treasures, not to mention shipwrecks, visit a local dive shop or sign up for an underwater dive tour guide to orient yourself. Favorite spots for local scuba divers include Harper's Pier in Port Orchard and Manchester.
Visitors and newcomers to the Pacific Northwest are increasingly choosing Kitsap Peninsula as the preferred alternative to pricier markets. They are leaving the bumper to bumper traffic and congestion behind. When there is a need/desire to connect with the big city life, Seattle is a short, scenic ferry ride away. Catch a ferry to Seattle for a day of shopping, Pike's Market, and ride the monorail, to check out the view of Puget Sound from the Space Needle. The WA State Ferry Systems can also take you on scenic journeys to Victoria, or to one of the many islands in the Puget Sound Area.
We invite you to come stay at our home in McCormick Woods for a while to relax and explore the great northwest. There is plenty to do whether you are into hiking, bicycling, boating, fishing, scuba diving, golfing, playing tennis or checking out the playground with your kids.
