About Andrea

we purchased this property in 2009 and moved the carpenters shop down to the water wherea prior permit was about to expire. We changed out most of the windows in order to maximize water and tree views. Adding a wooden stove and bio electric heating. The master builders used traditional craftman designs in installation of fir trim. Additional thought went into the swedish finished flooring. The main IPE deck makes for a wonderful indoor outdoor gathering spot and when the doors are opened up enlarges the home for it's open living.

Andrea purchased this house in 2009

Why Andrea chose Nordland

This lot faces directly down Kilisut Harbor facing Port Townsend. After scoping out the island for many years this property had in my opinion the very best view of anywhere on the island! The home was built as our retirement home as both my husband and I originally came from the NW. We plan on moving back in a few short years.

What makes this house unique

Waterfront property with oysters and clams. We have kayaks available in the summer months. The neighborhood is quiet and eagles can be heard along with other wild life. The area is a wonderful area that has bike trails and hiking galore.

This is a fantastic place to stay. The house is beautiful, up-to-date, very comfortable, and has everything you need. We relaxed, cooked, read, hung out by the water, took the kayaks out, and drove to Fort Flagler at the end of the Island. It was an extraordinarily peaceful and relaxing visit. The views are just breathtaking.....its even more beautiful than the photos convey. We drove to nearby Port Townsend. There is much to do and explore in the Olympic Peninsula area, but we loved the house and location so much we mostly stayed on Marrowstone Island. We saw deer, seals, bald eagles, kingfishers. This place is a treasure, and we hope to return.

An added bonus during our stay was observing a pair of otters come up into the yard.

Peaceful Off-Season Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a long weekend at the Aerie's Nest in November, and it was exactly the cozy couple's retreat we had hoped for. This tasteful and comfortable home is full of comfy places, inside and out, to relax with a book or gaze out past the evergreens at the gorgeous view through the many bay-facing windows. It's an inspiring place to write or sketch as well. The kitchen is up-to-date and fully equipped, and we enjoyed cooking up some fresh, local seafood for dinner. Port Townsend is close by for shopping, good restaurants, and movies. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return!

Comfortable home with a wonderful view of the water

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this home. We were looking for a nice, relaxing retreat and this place was perfect. The water views are gorgeous! The house was well stocked with everything we needed. Firewood was provided for the wood stove. Stairs to the water are a little slippery but there is a handrail to use. I would book this place again.

What a great location and home!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about this beautiful home and location. Also, Andrea was very welcoming and accommodating. The home had everything that we needed. We were looking for a peaceful get-away for a couple of days and got exactly what we were looking for. We cooked wonderful meals, sat in front of the fire and watched movies, sat on the porch and gazed at the water with Port Townsend in the distance, and read books in comfort. The weather was a little too cold and wet for us to launch the kayaks, although we could have done so if we were a little more in the mood. We will definitely be back!
