Overview

About the property

Hood Canal Waterfront view of Hood Canal, Dabob Bay, Mt Rainier, and Mt Baker.

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.

About Tammy Kreger

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

Why Tammy Kreger chose Brinnon

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!

What makes this house unique

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!

Fantastic home in fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time our large family have stayed here and we couldn't be happier with the house and the hosts. Everything we could need or want was readily available and the fact that we got perfect weather sure didn't hurt! We will be back!

Wonderful house and location. The ever changing tides were mezmorizing even on a stormy day

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, well appointed house was comfortable for our 4 generations of family and pets. Owners were very attentive to our needs with excellent communication via email/text. Don't expect to sit inside all day and watch TV. Satellite coverage very basic at best. But why would you want watch TV when the very best of the Pacific NW is just a few steps down to the beach? Looking forward to a return visit perhaps when the sun is shining.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that your four generation group enjoyed your stay so much. We do get a lot of compliments on our well appointed home and are glad to hear that you felt right at home. You can get local stations and weather on our TV, we usually get 56 channels. We also have a DVD collection. Most of our guests come to our home to enjoy activities in our area. Activities are fishing, crabbing, clam digging, oyster picking, hiking, etc. Some activities are seasonal. We will look forward to your next stay. Thank you, Tammy

Owner's Response: We are happy that you and your group enjoyed your stay so much. This is a big wonderful home for large or small groups. The views are breathtaking from the house and the jetted spa. Our back property line is the Olympic Nat'l Forest and there are many wonderful hikes and waterfalls close by. We get many compliments on our well appointed chef's kitchen. It is a pleasure to prepare wonderful meals in our spacious well organized kitchen and then serve them on our huge water view dining room table. It is a bird watchers dream right from inside our house or outside on the decks, beach, or on the property. Thanks again.

No Worries

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for a two day family get together. The location was beautiful and the accommodations were very good. We had nine people and we found good beds for all. This place has many extras from Jacuzzi to boats to fishing equipment. We did not use any of that as the weather was on the chilly side with some rain but it is a nice touch if we come back in the spring or summer months. The owner was easy to work with and very accommodating. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials and equipment which those of us doing the cooking appreciated. This place is on our list for a return engagement sometime in the future.
