The Pacific Northwest's Forests & Waterways

Set right along the shores of Eld Inlet within two acres of lush forests and breathtaking views of Mount Rainier, this is among the most unspoiled and diverse eco-systems in the Pacific Northwest .

Both the main house and its companion cottage have decks facing the views and each has been renovated with bright contemporary style while capturing the rugged feel of the great outdoors.

It’s the perfect setting to try out the Japanese practice of “forest bathing” or shinrin-yoku, head to the beach for a swim with the neighboring seals, or simply to be present while in nature.

With its origins in medieval England (and also the name of the nearby strait in Puget Sound), the name Pickering was chosen for this beach house rental in Washington to evoke the feeling of an old English family estate, where multiple generations resided together, and guests are always welcome. 

Description

Located in a quiet forested area just steps from the shoreline on Eld Inlet, this beach house rental in Washington is in a natural world all its own while still within easy driving distance of downtown Olympia and multiple National and State Parks. 

The main house is freshly renovated, with a colorful blue wash exterior, sustainable plank flooring, and updated modern comforts throughout that complement the natural scenery. 

The fully-equipped kitchen, breakfast area, and living room open out to the deck, and there are two bedrooms, one with a king bed and one with a qeen bed that sleep up to four (with optional sofa bed that can accommodate two additional guests).

The deck is the perfect spot to lounge and dine, with magnificent views of Mount Rainier and the water.

Adjacent to the main house with direct beach access, the charming cottage comes with a fully stocked kitchen, newly renovated bathroom, and a full sized bed. The dining area is perfect for dinner for two, and the private patio is a nice spot for a morning coffee to enjoy the lovely views of Puget Sound. 

The gardens of wild huckleberry and ferns, a rare sequoia, and towering Douglas Fir trees are the perfect escape with a hot tub for soaking under the stars.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout with cable TV, kitchen and bath amenities, laundry facilities. Hot tub access in the garden. Ample parking.

Optional itinerary add-ons available including: kayak rentals for $25/each, power boat cruises at $100/hour (schedule & weather dependent), in-house massage, sunset sails, water sports. Please inquire with your reservation.

RV parking available at the top of the driveway upon request.

AROUND

Washington’s Olympic Peninsula has some of the most lush and unspoiled natural beauty that the state has to offer, with gorgeous waterways in and around the mountains and ancient forests outside of the state capitol. Percival Landing is one of its three waterfront parks, located on the southern most tip of Puget Sound along Budd Bay. A bustling town hub, it has a lovely walkable harbor and restaurants in the heart of downtown. 

Closer to home, charming local towns to visit include Hoodsport, Lilliput, Quilcene, Port Townsend and Port Angeles.

Just over a mile away, Frye Cove Beach Park  is a great spot for forest walking and nearby Pickering Passage, named for the 19th century naturalist Charles Pickering, is a beautiful strait to explore that runs near the property. 

Taylor Shellfish Farms in Shelton is a 20 minute drive, and is the best local spot for the area’s famous oysters and seafood.

The local ferry from Port Angeles can take you on day trips to Victoria, BC.

LOCATION

Olympia Washington. Nearest Airport: Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (70 miles), Portland International Airport (126 miles)

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Depends on seasonal preference and the vibe you’re looking for. Water sports and sun and activities in the summer, quiet contemplation in the winter. The Pacific Northwest does get rainy and dark in the winter, but it’s usually above freezing and beach walks, hiking, and time in front of the fire or in the hot tub are all lovely year round.

    What can you say about an owner that brings you fresh oysters from her beach, kayaking across the inlet… WOW.  The first day we have a bald eagle viewing perched in the tree 20 ft. from the patio.  Deer the next morning… lots of birdsong through the night (I didn’t know what bird song was prior).  House was comfortable, cozy and had everything we needed.  Two meet thermometers… and quality things, not a trip to Costco. Great location, great views (of Mt. Ranier), the inlet.  I strongly recommend…

    Well to start, what can one say when the owner kayaks over from the other side of the inlet and brings fresh oysters from her beach … not once or twice but three times. They were delicious and Wendy was friendly, prompt and helpful prior to arrival and during our arrival.  It was like being in an island with views of the water, Mt. Ranier and more.  The very first day an eagle was perched up in a tree 20 ft. from the deck. Deer doing what deer do on the waterline… frolic maybe. Friendly neighbors.  I highly recommend this place for anyone.  It’s comfortable and tasteful, no cheap dishes or kitchen stuff.  Who has two meat thermometers, digital and analog🤪😅, this house did. Enjoy and thanks Wendy!
