FROM NOW UNTIL THE END OF APRIL we would prefer new bookings go to guests requesting to "Shelter in Place". Preferably guests who already share a home, and have not been exposed to someone with Covid-19. State parks are closed, as are tourist activities, and restaurants are only offering take out. Gas stations, grocery stores, and hardware stores in the area, are open. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) issued a temporary order to close all recreational fishing and shellfishing in the entire state in order to further prevent the spread of COVID-19.
WE DO HAVE HIGH SPEED CABLE INTERNET AND FREE WIFI. And a brand new 6 person hot tub installed March 19th 2019. This is a "whole house" listing. You and your guests will be the only people occupying the property during your stay.
This amazing custom home was designed and built for the actor Shephard Houghton and his wife in 1984. They would spend four or five months here each summer. In Shep’s memoirs he writes “It’s a beautiful home, with a view of sea and forest and [the public beaches in the Hoodsport area offer] lots of oysters, clams, shrimp, and salmon”. Shep appeared in silent films as a youngster, and went on to appear in such films as “Gone with the Wind”, “Showboat”, “Red Badge of Courage”, “Hello Dolly”, “Hindenburg”, and TV’s “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, “Kojac”, and “Star Trek”, among others, before retiring in 1976. He was well-liked for his personality and work ethic and befriended quite a few Hollywood legends along the way. Framed posters of some of his work are hanging in the game house.
There is just so much to enjoy about this house! Cook up a family meal in the large kitchen (while enjoying canal views), rest on one of the 2 large decks. Play pool, darts, ping-pong, or Donkey Kong in the private game house attached to the house. Or just explore the steeply terraced property to enjoy the wide-open views of the Hood Canal. (There is a fig tree, plum tree, and grape vine, all offering fruit during their season.) The brand new 6 person hot tub, installed 19 March 2019, has a beautiful view of the Hood Canal. The home is conveniently located on the beautifully scenic coastal highway 101 north.
Of course, the Olympic National Forest is at your door and Lake Cushman is just 5 miles away. There is hiking, boating, sightseeing, fishing, shellfish harvesting (off-site), hunting, shopping, etc., all within minutes of the house. There are even a few popular Casinos just a short distance south on Highway 101.
Our home will sleep up to 10-12 people comfortably, depending on the number of couples and kids. PLEASE review the bed situation here and only bring the number of people you booked for. Some of the bed situations have limited privacy. BEDS AND PRIVACY: There is a private bedroom with queen bed, a private bedroom with king bed, a loft with 4 twin beds, a full size futon on the ground floor in the office area adjacent to the washer/dryer, and a queen size sleeper sofa in the game house.

The kitchen is large and well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, small appliances, blender, mixer, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher, etc. Guests provide their own food. We also supply the towels, shampoo, body wash, washer and dryer, laundry and dish detergents and beach towels.
