About Lorraine

After teaching for thirty four years, and repairing cars, and airplanes and investing in properties for even longer, we have retired to a life of 'snow birds', creating home(s) along the west coast. Our home on the McCormick Woods Golf Course is one of our favorites. When we are not playing with the house/ yard, or working on the computer, we are exploring the North West, reading, visiting with friends and family, going for long walks through the Mc Cormick Woods neighborhood, 'workng out' at the YMCA, or driving off for another adventure in our RV.

Lorraine purchased this house in 2008

Why Lorraine chose Puget Sound

We love the ambience, especially the fresh air, forests, clear skies and the natural beauty of the Puget Sound area. It is a great place to take a deep breath, relax,enjoy nature, and explore the wealth of outdoor activities. Being removed from the huslte and bustle of major cities, yet still having easy access to Seattle and other favorites like Gig Harbor, Silverspring, Tacoma, and British Columbia has been an important consideration for us.

What makes this house unique

One chief advantage of staying here is the price: It is very inexpensive for what you get. Access to downtown Seattle or Victoria BC via the ferry and/or freeway is simple, yet pleasurable with fantastic scenery along the way. Best of all the house and surrounding neighborhood are a designers’ dream come true. To inhabitants and visitors alike, it feels spacious, welcoming, comfortable, quiet and very peaceful.

The property was clean and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a beautiful and quiet neighborhood. The picturesque view of the back yard included numerous varieties of birds and often deer would wander through. The inside was clean and well furnished. the kitchen was fully stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. The full sized Jacuzzi tub and walk-in tiled shower area was fantastic.

Our requirement for reserving the home required us to communicate with the owner. She contacted us immediately and was a pleasure to do business with. I will definitely visit her property again!

Enjoyed 21 days in 2 different properties! Both were beautiful, quiet & very peaceful settings!

  • 5 of 5

Owners were exceptionally accommodating with all requests, offering another property when we wanted to extend reservations but the property was previously booked. Second property was equally wonderful and in a beautiful neighborhood not far from the first property. Thoroughly enjoyed all interactions with, owners, Lorraine & Virgil, and would definitely stay again when in the area. Both properties were furnished beautifully with everything needed to make guests feel completely at home. Natural beauty in yards and wildlife- deer, rabbits, squirrels and birds -were enjoyable and serene. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Delightful getaway home

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful time we had staying at this beautiful home. It was more than comfortable and we felt like we were in our own little retreat. The back porch/patio was our favorite as it felt secluded and was surrounded by woods. We loved knowing we had the opportunity to cook our own meals. The beds were extremely comfortable.

Lorraine was most helpful with anything we needed. We are looking forward to our next visit to Washington.

I hate to do these reviews especially for a great property! SEE BELOW!

  • 5 of 5

Every time I stay at a great property like this Port Orchard property and write a positive review it gets booked so much I cant ever get back to it for another booking. Long story short, Lorraine and Virgil's rental is, without doubt, a superior rental. A true 5 star rental. Every thing worked, it was impeccably maintained and clean and the landscaping around the home was amazing. If you are looking for a Port Orchard rental in a quiet high end neighborhood this is the place.

Family fun time!

  • 5 of 5

This property was wonderful. We had a great time. We got to enjoy a relaxing time and even had time to go to Seattle on the ferry. I would love to make this a yearly experience. Everything was so clean and we had everything we needed for a home away from home.

Beautiful Home in a Beautiful area of Washington State

  • 5 of 5

When we originally booked this property, it was for a weekend in February. When we needed to reschedule, Lorraine was very accommodating and let us switch weekends with no penalty. We only needed to pay the difference in price between the original weekend and the new weekend. Lorraine was also very quick to respond to questions. We had a wonderful weekend staying at this home. The house is large and very well-kept, with plenty of room for four adults. The home is well situated in a quiet neighborhood of Port Orchard. You can walk around the waterfront of Port Orchard and hop a walk-on ferry to Bremerton. If you don't mind driving, it's a little more than an hour drive to Port Townsend which is a wonderful town to walk around, or less than a 30 minute drive to Bremerton, where you can either walk around the waterfront, or hop on a ferry to Seattle. If we should stay in this area again, I would definitely stay i this house and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to visit this area of Washington.
