Romantic Studio Get Away with a Spectacular Water & Mountain View!
About Darcy Herrett
I am an artist that loves to travel. I enjoy going to new places and meeting new people. I have traveled using Airbnb within the US as well as overseas. I love to get away for just a weekend to reset my outlook on life. I have hosted travelers in my studio in the past and loved the experience. I just opened a new Airbnb getaway, Raven's Landing this year. I am excited to welcome new people to our beautiful area!
Darcy Herrett purchased this Studio in 2015
Why Darcy Herrett chose Hansville
I chose this property because of the west facing view of the Olympics and Hood Canal. I love that it feels away from it all while it really is only twenty minutes to the Kingston/Edmond Ferry and forty minutes to the Bainbridge Island/Seattle Ferry. I designed this home and love to share the private studio with travelers.
What makes this Studio unique
Raven's Landing Studio is only minutes from Point no Point beach with miles of beach walking, I am also minutes away from Buck Lake for swimming in the summer as well as the Nature Reserve just down the road for a brief walk through the woods opening up to a drop dead gorgeous view of Hood Canal. There are also mountain bike and walking trails just up the road from my home. Fishing and kayaking are just minutes away. I have a hybrid mountain bike as well as a kayak that guests are welcome to use as well.

Beautiful garden, water views, many near-by walks to the beach and through the forest, comfortable accommodations, helpful hostess.
Perfect for everything we needed
We stayed at Raven's Landing while attending a family reunion down the street and it was just perfect. It was close to the Hansville Store, Hood Canal, hiking trails and the family cabin. The cottage was very comfortable and the views from the deck were stunning. Darcy was a gracious hostess and very helpful.
Cute but little tight
Very quiet neighborhood, great views, beautiful garden, great house, good craftsmanship, studio with high ceilings, plenty of windows overlooking backyard and view to water and mountains in the distance.
The layout of the room with the bed in middle made this actually quite big room very tight. Better layout could accommodate a queen size bed with bedside tables, I missed those.
Three big bookcases with enough books and artwork plus additional art on walls and hanging from ceiling made it a bit challenging for my items to store.
Darcy was ok for me to move the bed to the side and out of the way. I had planned to cook most of my meals but found not much place to store my groceries in the miniature fridge, smaller than an unter counter fridge. The kitchenette had everything I needed to cook a meal, but needs a real kitchen sink for cleaning dishes. Was afraid a dish could chip while cleaning.
For myself the bed was plenty big but extremely uncomfortable and made noises when moving, especially knowing that Darcy’s bedroom is behind the adjoining wall. Except for a squeaky bed the nights were wonderfully peaceful and quiet.
I adjusted what I needed it and made it work.
Overall I got plenty of relaxing time, and Darcy’s place gave me that.
It was a pleasure to host you Iris. Sorry to hear the bed was not comfortable for you. I have not heard this before so I am surprised as I have had many other guests share that the bed is quite comfortable. The layout of the room allows for a view of the Olympics from the bed and I have had so many comments on how much guests like waking up to that view. Overall it sounds like you had a relaxing and rejuvenating stay and I am so glad to hear that.
Beautiful setting, quiet, peaceful and perfect for reflection. Watching the sun set from the secluded back deck was a joy. All the amenities are provided in this charming little retreat. Close to a nice little beach-lovely spot!
Personal Retreat Stay
Great place for personal retreat in inviting environment! Extremely pleasant hostess.
Relaxing and serene
We enjoyed a peaceful retreat in Hansville full of peaceful walks in the Hansville Greenway and amazing sunsets off the cabin’s deck.
Darcy was an unobtrusive yet gracious host and the tastefully decorated room had everything we needed for a weeks stay.
Very pleasant and we would certainly stay again!
Just minutes from my home are beautiful destination beaches, hiking trails, nature preserves, bird watching, fishing, golfing, beach combing, and mountain bike riding. Hansville is a great starting point for adventures in the Olympic Mountains such as cross country skiing, hiking and to the Pacific Ocean for deep sea fishing as well as surfing.
