We found our stunning property after having a vision for over 30 years of a family compound where we could live and share a beautiful natural environment with our son and daughter. We traveled to many places; the Pacific Rim, New Zealand and Canada in search of a special place. When we found 25 acres with a lovely pond and a truly Northwest Log Cabin 14 years ago on the Olympic Peninsula, it felt really right.
We lived in the Log Cabin while we renovated the property and structures. Our son designed his Compass Rose House and we all built it together. Friends helped us build our Pond Cottage. Our son and daughter got jobs in other parts of the world so we decided to help pay for our property by renting out our homes.
The Olympic Peninsula provides us remarkable natural scenery of almost every sort. We climb mountains, thrill at pristine glaciers and lakes in Olympic National Park and find bear, goats, deer and a variety of birds. We love to find waterfalls that few people have found and explore the rain forest mysteries summer and winter. Our children surf the waves as we explore the beaches with unusual pinnacles and formations, and we collect driftwood and bask on the white sand. We take our family picnicing on the beautiful clear rivers where they can catch Steelhead or Salmon. We watch the whales as they migrate, we marvel at the living glaciers. Every season of the year there is something to be inspired by and enjoy.
Our specialty in life has been to savor and appreciate nature and to help others have that passion too. And that is witnessed in our lovely property and the beautiful homes we have blended with the natural environment. For those who want privacy, we provide it. For those who want a serene and restorative Northwest experience, we provide that. Our homes are surrounded by meadows and a pond filled with fish, with majestic trees lining the edges and wildflowers. We have tried to make nature available and enjoyable out of every window and from every deck. Our hot tubs are outside so you can view the stars. You can see the Olympic Mountains in all their array from nearly every window. We want to touch people, to leave a lasting memory of enjoyment and rejuvenation, to have an infectious experience that compels them to want to pass on the importance of our natural resources to everyone.
