Martha Vaughan the owner was born and raised in Seattle area. In 1995 Martha moved to Bainbridge Island to a historic home built in 1892. This was an old farm called Blakely Hill Farm. Martha raised three wonderful children at Blakely Hill farm. Martha ended up buying the adjoining acreage and Blakely Hill Farm expanded. Martha always had a love of animals of every kind. Martha's children shared this passion and soon Blakely Hill Farm grew onto an animal rescue. First there were dogs and cats, then goats, llamas, a friendly pig and horses. Lots of horses. These were animals thats last possible chance at life was that Martha would take them. Martha was the last "net" to catch/save them in most cases. Martha took neglected, beaten and just thrown out animals from all sorts of unfortunate situations. Martha has now has moved the farm to Port Angeles Wa where she continues to take mostly horses in with her daughter. Martha says rescue animals are a slippery slope but one of the most rewarding slippery slopes. Martha now owns and runs multiple vacation homes and a wedding venue. Martha loves the outdoors. She loves walking the dogs, riding her horses, swimming in Quilcene Bay and enjoying life in general.
purchased this house in 2005
Why chose Quilcene
I purchased this property for so many reasons. I had a huge list of wants when I was shopping for this property. I thought I would never find everything on my list. Thank goodness for my patient realtor! I wanted waterfront property. It has to be saltwater-so I would have a beach and most importantly the water temperature had to warm up for swimming in the summer months. Quilcene Bay was the the right place for my swimming family. Quilcene Bay is such a clean pristine bay. We wanted a place to kayak-this was the right choice again. We kayak all over this bay. The best part is that across from our property is national forest land. There are great coves to explore and no houses. What a rare treat. We wanted waterfront acreage that was secluded. This was a great fit. We wanted a very charming type of house-cabin-hands down this was it. We wanted enough space-bedrooms-bathrooms to have our friends come and stay too. Our list of course included somewhere with a great view, quiet and a big factor was where our rescue dogs could come and run around, swim and not disturb anyone. We needed a quiet setting, country road that we could do our walks on... We found everything we wanted at this property and believe me I shopped for years to find this special place. My family has made years and years of memories at The Quilcene Bay Hideaway. We hope your family and friends can come and make memories at the Quilcene Bay Hideaway too.
