The Chesnut Cottage is the perfect quaint romantic getaway or rustic writer's retreat. One of three AirB&B listings on our 10-acre property atop Harper's Hill, it is surrounded by woods and a short walk up from the Puget Sound where you can fish from Harper pier or kayak over to Blake Island. The Southworth ferry terminal is just over a mile away providing direct access to both Seattle and Vashon Island. Harper is the perfect base camp for exploring the beautiful Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas.

The Chesnut Cottage (or "Little House," as we have always called it) is the perfect quaint romantic getaway or rustic writer's retreat. It's cozy and completely self-contained with one bedroom, a living room that includes the original brick fireplace, and a spacious kitchen with washer and drier. The bathroom features a small (and short!) clawfoot tub.

It feels the most 'urban' of our properties because it is closest to our gravel road, closer to the water, and is within sight of a few neighbors, including our great, great grandfather's craftsman style (c. 1897) home. It still feels private since it is tucked into the woods. Through the trees you can also see the water and, if you look carefully, the shores of Lincoln Park in West Seattle.

This 1905 cabin used to belong to our Aunty Suzy and cousins Vicky and Brad, our family antique collectors, and we have lovingly decorated it with a number of their curio's.

We are just 1.5 miles from the Southworth ferry dock and mini-mart; you can walk here in 30 minutes or drive it in 5.

This is a peaceful spot and the ultimate in "slow-life" where you truly step back in time. A cozy place for a couple or perfect for anyone seeking solitude and a slower pace, surrounded by nature. While quite comfortable, we still hand-wash our dishes, bbq using charcoal, and chop wood for the fireplace. Only 40 minutes from Seattle by ferry via Vashon (25 minutes, if you happen to catch the direct ferry), this is a wonderful place to unhook from your fast-paced life and curl up with a book and a cup of tea in front of a roaring fire.

It is a short walk downhill to the baseball diamond at Harper Park, the newly restored estuary and kayak-launch area, and the new Harper Pier which includes a water-level dock with a swimming ladder; you can jump off into the brisk Puget Sound! Squid fishermen and local anglers also hang out on the pier or fly fish from the rocky beach. Next to it is a funky coffee shop that is open when it suits the friendly owners.


**Please note: We do consider pets on a case by case basis. Pets are not allowed without prior approval. Approved pets will be subject to a $45 fee and are not allowed on the furniture. We ask you to follow a shortlist of common-sense house rules, mainly with the pet's safety in mind. We will use your damage deposit to cover damage or extra cleaning if need be.**

Mahali utakapokuwa

Port Orchard, Washington, Marekani

There are plenty of walking and biking trails and parks nearby. Quiet country roads wind through a natural, unassuming and semi-rural woodsy neighborhood with chicken coops and horse pastures. Drivers still wave at one another and when they pass pedestrians. The historic Harper Community Park has a delightful trail that drops down to the waterfront and a small picnic area and baseball diamond.

Within walking distance: a small convenience store located at the Southworth Ferry dock (35 minutes walk) and a small and eclectic cafe 5 minutes down the hill at the new Harper Dock.

This property has been in our family for seven generations. In the early days, our relatives spent happy summers on the hill living in simple, utilitarian tent platforms while enjoying the woods and time together. Over the years, uninsulated bunkhouses, cabins and cottages replaced tents and eventually some family moved to live here all year round. People often say that the minute they step foot on the hill, they feel that it is very special. It is a place to rest, relax, rejuvenate, spend time with others, and enjoy the natural beauty of the woods. Truly an “old-school” Pacific NW retreat! We thoroughly enjoy our guests!
