|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
This Hood Canal vacation rental is a wonder to behold: Olympic National Park at your back door, and the Dosewallips Wildlife Estuary right in front. You'll see many birds native to the Pacific Northwest including bald and golden eagles, heron, geese, ducks and more. Orca whales, seals with their pups and river otter frequent the waters in front of you and from time to time the Brinnon Elk herd may visit the yard.
A new six-person jetted spa overlooking the water allows you to take it all in while relaxing in warmth and comfort. Large upper and lower decks provide a sweeping view of Hood Canal, Dabob Bay, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker. Private stairs to the beach with a large dock allow you to play, swim, fish or take the provided canoe out for a ride. At low tide, approximately 29 acres of pristine tide-lands.
Just a short walk down the road is the famous Geoduck Restaurant Lounge, voted #2 'Best Bars in the U.S.' by Esquire Magazine.
The just-remodeled home boasts an amazing 2,830 square feet of beautifully appointed living that can comfortably sleep up to 12 guests. The master bedroom stretches across the entire top floor of the home in a loft style. Additionally, we have outfitted the main floor with an upgraded queen-size sleeper sofa, and we offer a folding-style crib for those traveling with little ones.
We also offer a second waterfront 5 bedroom home in Brinnon. That new home is called Seal Rock and is 3 miles away from Nature's Paradise. The home sleeps 14 people comfortably in beds and is 3080 square feet. The dining room table seats 14 with 18 matching chairs. The Seal Rock home will be modeled after Nature's Paradise in amenities.
My husband and I bought this home in 2003 for the purpose of retiring early and living there. We're not ready to retire quite yet, and decided that we would really like to share this lovely home and the surrounding beauty with others!
I am proud and happy to say that I have lived in the Puget Sound area my entire life. One of my favorite pastimes is traveling. I have visited every continent, 60 different countries, and taken 44 cruises (so far!). Because I have spent so much time traveling, I truly have a good understanding of guests' needs and wants.
Even though I am happy to have seen so much of the world, I am always grateful to return to an area as gorgeous and diverse as the Pacific Northwest. I could choose anywhere in the world to retire to, but I have chosen Brinnon, Washington on Hood Canal for many reasons. Once you have visited this area, you will see why!
Tammy Kreger purchased this house in 2003
I chose this particular property because of the outstanding sweeping view of Hood Canal and Dabob Bay. There is also a great view of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker.
My husband and I are big seafood fans and love all of the wonderful shellfish available to harvest near our home. We also like to take advantage of the private dock for setting out to shrimp, crab and fish.
We can't imagine a more beautiful environment to vacation in. It truly is 'Nature's Paradise!'; so we hope you'll come and enjoy it for yourselves!
The 29-acre privately-owned beach is fun to explore by foot (we provide rubber boots in many sizes). Explore the Dosewallips estuary by boat, you will probably see many seals, eagles, king fishers, osprey, etc. The tidelands also have many species of clams. Some of the best dungeness crabbing can be done directly in front of the home.
You are welcome to take the provided boat off the dock and put some crab pots in it to take out.You can simply paddle out a short distance and place the pots for fetching later in the day. My husband and I do so and catch our limits easily! Some of the best Hood Canal Spotted Shrimp are also caught in the waters in front of the home. Crabbing and Shrimp are seasonal.
It is also fascinating to watch the nuclear submarines practice in the waters out front of the home. Bird watching is another fun and relaxing experience from our 1,600 square-foot upper and lower decks, and from the dock.
The food resources available in the area are tremendous. Nearby there is clamming, oysters, crabbing, shrimping, sea run cutthroat fishing, salmon fishing, wild mountain blackberries, evergreen huckleberries, and mushrooms.
Often I enjoy watching the Brinnon Roosevelt elk herd graze in the Dosewallips pasture lands right from my decks. Sometimes the elk actually come to my yard and graze on my landscaping!
Three generations of my family got together for any early Christmas celebration. We all loved the house and had a great experience. Such a beautiful view to wake up to.
I saw one of the most beautiful rainbows of my life from the front deck of this cabin. Everything was supper organized and we did not need anything we did not find! If you are planning to stay at this cabin, please please pack less! We were a group of 12 people and almost everybody thought it was the best cabin they every stayed in.
We booked this property for a family vacation over thanksgiving week. The house is beautiful and the kitchen had everything that we needed to cook a full thanksgiving dinner. Looking forward to a return trip to the peninsula in the future!
I spent 3 nights at Nature's Reserve with nine other women for our annual girls reunion. The house was perfect for us: comfortable beds for everyone, a well-equipped kitchen, dining room table seating 10 people, a hot tub, fire pit, 2 boats & gear, crab pots and bait, rakes for clamming...you name it. The house is right on Hood Canal in a wonderful setting close to Olympic National Park hiking trails and beach. Our host, Tammy, was most gracious and accommodating. There's also a good local bar/restaurant just down the road which was a convenient place to grab a bite the evening we checked in. The house sits below a dark stretch of US 101, so arriving before dark to find the street number is a good idea. I hope to return again soon with my extended family.
The house is beautifully set right on the shores of Hood Canal, offering a spectacular view from the living room and the mezzanine with master bed. The bucolic wilderness of Dosewallips state park is on one side and the top of Mount Rainier in the distance on the other. Everything else in view is trees, hills, water and wildlife. Beautiful. It is obvious that the homeowners love and respect the surroundings, not only in the way the house is built, with many large windows and the decks allowing you to eat beach-side, but also because there are fun pictures of bald eagles, water and of old town Brinnon dispersed in each room. Though, you might see bald eagles even before you see them on the wall, as two pairs of binoculars are gracefully provided to admire the real ones out on the surrounding trees. Best perk as far as I am concerned, the owners even lend their two boats (one row, one canoe) and two crab traps, which allowed us to go out and get our own food for our stay. Crab cooking pot, additional fishing gear, boots, raingear, free bait, and burner are even provided! All you need to do is get yourself a license! And we definitely were glad we went on the boat, because the best view yet is from the water! When a bit out, by clear weather, you can see the snowy tip of the Olympic, right behind the dozens of seal eating the surrounding fish and the aforementioned state park. A truly stunning sight we’ll remember and aim to row back to for years to come!
Real nature in a real paradise of a home. It has everything you could possibly need to enjoy the surroundings to the max. Among other perks that I haven’t mentioned yet are a well-maintained fire pit with chairs and smores sticks (with an unlimited supply of firewood), a very clean Jacuzzi, an arcade machine, great parking spots for everybody in the party, everything you would possibly need to cook, eat and play, and the owners even greeted us with a lovely welcome package with smores fixings and a treat for our dog! Let me add that despite the fact that we had the max number of people allowed, the house was perfectly comfortable, with enough dishes, towels and bathrooms for everyone! This true gem of a house and its very thoughtful hosts, who clearly are nature lovers and know what comfort is, made for a very special stay.
My friends and I have been renting cabins every fall on Hood Canal for the past 4 years. As soon as we walked into this house we knew we had made the right choice. The house was clean and spacious. Our group was small, but I can see this house being a great place for a larger gathering of 8-12 people. The deck was amazing and fun to watch the wildlife that was around quite a bit. Saw plenty of seals, bald eagles, and humming birds. The hot tub and fire pit are an added bonus. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. Can't recommend this house enough.
The only bad thing was minor. Bring a can opener with you as the one there didn't work very well. Or maybe my friend was just can opener challenged, I'm not 100% sure.
We overlook the Dosewallips Estuary, it is fun to use our canoe, row boat, and life jackets to explore. You see amazing wildlife like lots of eagles, seals, sometimes elk, kingfishers, osprey, etc.
