One room with a double bed and shared bath. Organic breakfast served upon request. Coffee and tea and use of kitchen upon request.

Quiet area with lots of trees; view of Mt. Rainier. One cat, no smoking. Bedroom on one floor near kitchen and next the home's one bathroom (shared with host). Front stairs are wide and deep with good railing. Shower only. Owner is single mature woman who has occupied the house for 38 years. Emerita Evergreen State College faculty. Many books and semi-private TV and reading room available. Apple TV only. Tours of Taylor shellfish/oyster plant nearby. Super oyster restaurant named Xinh's in nearby Shelton and shellfish bar at Little Creek Casino.

Interaction with Guests
Host works in the home as a writer but can close doors for privacy. Guest can be on their own to cook, clean up, sit in the tv room or on decks. Bathroom is shared. Usually not a problem.
I have known my nearest neighbors for over 40 years...one is a gallery owner and visual artist; another is a well known educator. All the others are terrific people. The bay is a working bay and has been used commercially for the production of oysters for more than 100 years.
Buses run to Olympia from Little Creek Casino...but would need transport to get there. It is possible to get Airporter transport to Little Creek Casino and I could provide transport to my home from there. But one would probably want a car to get around.
Other Things to Note
No smoking. No pets. Prefer quiet after 11 but negotiable.
Would prefer fairly quiet guests (after 11 pm), non-smoking, no red wine in bedroom or sitting room. People with interest in local history, natural history, and respectful of our need to use water with caution. We are on septic system and well. The water is great and filtered.
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
