Holiday Rental House
Take in the sparkling views from 3 levels of this stunning 4 level custom home just steps from the waters of the Hood Canal. Huge decks, some covered, some for sunning, wrap around the water side of this beautiful home. Walk out the sliding glass door of your bedroom onto the large upstairs patio. Have your morning coffee while watching the Harbor Seals soak up the morning sun. In the winter gaze out from the living room onto the crystal waters while warming yourself by the glass woodstove. Relax in the new hot tub while viewing the waters of the Hood Canal. There is just so much to enjoy about this house! Walk down to the water for oysters at low tide, or put in your small boat or kayak. Play pool, darts, ping-pong, or Donkey Kong in the private game house attached to the house.

Walk down to the water for oysters at low tide, or put in your small boat or kayak. Play pool, darts, ping-pong, or Donkey Kong in the private game house attached to the house. Or just lounge around the .88 acres of terraced property. 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 lots of oysters, clams, shrimp, and salmon on the beach in front”. 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. His memoirs can be found on the coffee table in the living room. Of course the Olympic National Forest is at your door and Lake Cushman is just 5 miles away. There is hiking, boating, sightseeing, fishing, hunting, shopping, etc., all within minutes of the house. There are even a few popular Casinos just a short distance south on Highway 101. We do allow short stays, so if you are traveling up the coast and just need a place to rest your head for the night you'll find brand new beds and clean fresh sheets await you. The kitchen is large, with new refrigerator and stove, and well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, small appliances, blender, mixer, microwave, coffeemaker, dishwasher, etc. We also supply the towels, shampoo, body wash, washer and dryer, and beach towels.More
