Interaction with Guests
We love to share our local organic experience with you. Ask for a taste of our homemade Ginger Brew. You are also welcome to nibble fresh garden veggies in season, if we have extra to share. We'll show you how to access our trails. If you prefer privacy, the space is all yours.
The Barn is located in a small private community, a former 40-acre farm. We live in the original 1927 homestead farmhouse, a short walk away. We love the private trails, wildlife, natural beauty, and close access to four nearby beaches. It's a 5 minute drive or 30-40 minute walk to Port Gamble, with fun antique stores, historic museums, great restaurants.

Located 15 minutes from the Kingston-Edmonds ferry, and 35 minutes from the Bainbridge Island-Seattle ferry. A car is recommended for exploring the area, as there are only 4 daily busses here, from Poulsbo or Port Townsend, via Jefferson Transit. You could also get around with a bike.
From Sea-Tac airport, you have two choices: drive south via 1-5 to Tacoma, take WA-16 to Bremerton and then WA-3 to our place (about 1.5 hours, more with traffic). Or you can drive North to downtown Seattle and drive on the Bainbridge Island ferry ( about 1.5 hours, and around $15.00 one way.)
If you are using public transportation, you can take light rail to downtown Seattle and walk on the Bainbridge Island ferry. Kitsap Transit's #90 bus runs north to Poulsbo, where you can transfer to a Jefferson Transit bus (2 scheduled in the morning, 2 in the afternoon), or contact us for a possible pickup.
No smoking. We will allow some pets with extra cleaning fees. This former 40 acre farm shares open space and trails with 4 neighbors; please be respectful.
We had an absolutely lovely time at the Barn with a View. It's well set up to accommodate a group of friends, and we all appreciated the open layout. The kitchen and eating area were well stocked and well set up. We had beautiful views of the water, and Christine had left us chocolate, apples, and lots of great information about local hikes and sights. During our stay, we took a couple of hikes that we were able to access directly from the property. With about a 20 minute walk, it was easy to get to some really beautiful, open woods full of old fir trees. The only thing that I hadn't realized about the barn ahead of time is that the two bedrooms are just separated from the main living space with curtains. There isn't a lot of sound privacy in those rooms, and we worried, as we had a baby with us. It all ended up working out just fine, though. We'd absolutely stay here again.
We had a wonderful time staying at the barn with the view. No better place to see sunsets over the hood canal. On our quite walks we even we greeted by the rabbits that traveled throughout the nearby woods. We plan to return!
We loved staying here, this was a return visit. Christine is a great host and had the place perfectly prepared for our arrival. The accommodations were excellent, and the facilities such as the kitchen and bathroom were clean and with everything needed to use them. There is a great view, and it's real close to Port Gamble, and close to Port Angeles where we went for a visit to Hurricane Ridge. She had added a new room to the Barn since we were last there, and it is amazing with a soft bed and view itself of the water. There are games to play, musical instruments to try, several visiting spaces, and the barn has a wonderful high ceiling to spend the time in. Plus lots of lighting options to fit your mood. This is a perfect place to stay for any occasion. We look forward to going back.
Though we didn't meet more than a hello over the garden while my twin boys quizzed her about the chickens, this home had so much hospitality I was immediately comfortable. Beyond that, it was one of the cleanest spaces I have ever stayed! Icing on the cake. Wish we had more time to spend there and not running around, but hey, the area is unbelievably beautiful. Highest recommendation!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Barn with a view". The kitchen/great room area is a very comfortable space with wonderful couches and additional beds and a fantastic view. There are all kinds of "fun" things to keep you entertained like a xylophone, bongo drum, ping pong table, art supplies, and more. There is also a fabulous long wooden dining table that accommodated our family gathering perfectly.
The setting is beautiful....we saw deer several times in the front yard and there are hiking trails that you can access right from the property. Christine was a very gracious and accommodating host.
We had a great time at the Barn With a View. We had such gracious and thoughtful hosts! The view from the barn was amazing and there is plenty to do and explore in the area. Thank you so much for great time!.
We had a marvelous time at the Barn with a View. The barn itself is very comfortable and quiet. My boys loved the ping pong table and the space. We picked fruits from trees, and tomatoes and basil from the greenhouse and they were delicious. The area is also gorgeous. Poulsbo has the best ice cream we ever had at Mora Ice Cream, and we found Point-NO-Point at the tip of the peninsula a marvelous place.
I'm a writer, singer and Sparkologist :), offering creative, spiritual retreats and classes. My husband makes furniture, sculpture and ginger beer. We grow 90% of our fruits and vegetables on this land. We are honored to tend this beautiful place and enjoy sharing it with others.
As travelers, we seek out authentic local culture. We love to discover what is unique and what we share in common with each person and place we meet.
