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.
