General description

  • Main home
Our sunny 2 story home overlooks the Puget Sound and is surrounded by the Cascade Mountains to the east and Olympic mountains to the west. Situated on 1+ acres, we are blessed with redwood, cedar, fir, maple, apple, and cherry trees. Our large wrap around porch is our favorite hangout in the summer as we are surrounded by birds, flowering Rhododendrons and Camillas. The huge master bedroom with gorgeous views of the water and snow-capped mountains makes it difficult to get out of bed! If available, we will also include the use of a car during your stay.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • A dog
Our dog, Rudy, is 15. He had back surgery six years ago. Because of this, he doesn't need to be walked, just let out into the yard 5-6 times a day. He also needs to be carried up and downstairs and up and down off of furniture as he is no longer able to jump. He prefers to be with people and will follow you around the house. He also needs to sleep in the same room as you (he has his own bed.) Overall, he is rather easy, in that he sleeps/rests most of the day, gets fed once a day and needs a half of a pill each morning.
We may also need some mowing and raking done as the leaves begin to fall. We have a tractor to help with mowing.
