Marrowstone Island waterfront property
we purchased this property in 2009 and moved the carpenters shop down to the water where a 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.
100% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 7 days before check-in date.
Mystery Bay solitude.
This was our fourth stay at Mystery Bay and we had a wonderful time, as always. Andrea, the owner, is always a joy to work with and helped us out quickly with all our needs. The cool weather and abundant wildlife made every day wonderful and interesting. We are already planning our trip for next year!
Quiet, quaintly place to stay
The property is very nice with a good location for a short, quiet stay. Only improvement would be to have clean dishes, pots and pans. However, the rest of the property was clean.
Hi Thomas I’m so sorry for your experience! I have a new house cleaner and somewhere through the process something must have happened. Perhaps the dishwasher was not run correctly last time, it is very sensitive and needs to have both pro wash and pro dry on. Please contact me and let me know what exactly you noticed so I can rectify this problem immediately. I will be happy to refund half of your cleaning deposit as well.
Beautiful getaway on Marrowstone Island
The house is beautiful. It looks up the bay between Marrowstone and Indian Islands to the sound, so you see small local boats anchored and occasionally heading up and out, but I also saw a deer go right down to the waterfront and root around for 15-20 minutes, not 10 feet from a heron who had been there all morning. The house looks and feels brand-new, with cozy, beautiful, and convenient furnishings, and a number of lovely little spaces and accents. Amazingly, the small cabin off to the side is even cuter, with a little glass-enclosed sunroom abutting a little kitchen and bedroom with a piano facing out toward the water. I booked the property for a solo retreat, a gift from my wife for my birthday, and the location & house were a perfect fit for what I was looking for - solitude, beauty, and a base from which to explore the area. The owner Andrea offered to communicate by text, which I appreciated, and was extremely responsive to my few questions and requests. I highly recommend this property to anyone seeking a getaway around the Hood Canal.
Nice family get away with extra ordinary views and between the nature
We booked this property to enjoy the vacation near Olympic national park. Many beautiful locations In Olympic national park are just an hour away from this.
Coming to Andrea she is the nicest host. Internet stopped working for a moment. Pinged her about it. And Bam!! A guy was there to repair it. But it was resolved the next moment on its own before he come.
Andrea, thanks for sharing your home with us. It is really really beautiful. Especially the connectivity with water behind . Super nice sunsets you can enjoy in back yard. Sleeping in the loft while watching the sky with that glass top. Cooking for family. And kayaks.. not used them though.
Overall I strongly recommend this. I am coming again
Very beautiful home. Great breeze off the bay.
We love this place! The owner is attentive and a pleasure to talk too.
We had a fabulous weekend at Aerie's nest! The deck has the most amazing views, you could sit there forever. The island has a great state park and tons of wildlife...bald eagles, seal, deer, crabs, so much more. A great place to relax and take it all in, we hope to come back again!
Port Townsend is a mere 10 mikes away, cycling, kayaking, hiking, crabbing and fishing all great activities. For artists and musicians, this region is the mecca for bluegrass and jazz. World famous writers workshops all throughout the year. Local organic farms and winerys throughout the region.
