Watch great blue herons glide in for a landing while sipping your morning coffee in this large, airy, well-lit apartment. Your vacation get-away spot occupies the entire second floor of a cheery bright red barn on a small working farm.
Entirely private, the apartment’s many windows feature spectacular views of the property’s 11 acres of native wetlands, woodlands, gardens, and critters (chickens, ducks, goats, rabbits, 2 friendly dogs, and abundant wildlife). Vaulted cathedral ceilings make the 650 square feet seem even larger! The entire apartment has been recently refurbished with new appliances and fixtures. Electric baseboard heat, a cozy propane stove with flickering flames, windows that open, and an elegant ceiling fan keep the apartment comfortable and romantic year-round. The ample closets, drawers, and shelves will make you want to move in and stay forever.
Guests are welcome to use the covered deck with propane grill, wander about the property, and help themselves to ripe fruits and berries in season.
Interaction with guests
Rocky and Cheri will be as available as you would like us to be. Your comfort is important to us, as is your desire for privacy. Our home is near the building that houses the apartment, but the sight lines preserve privacy for both parties. We will be present, caring for the gardens and animals. A binder with recommendations about local services and entertainment is in the apartment and we are happy to provide personalized guidance to meet your individual needs.
Other things to note
Meals can be prepared in the apartment’s fully equipped kitchen or enjoyed at one of the many excellent local restaurants. Non-toxic, environmentally-friendly cleaning products are used throughout the apartment. A HEPA filter air purifier is used after every cleaning and is available for your use during your stay.
The apartment is pet-free in consideration of those with allergies.
No smoking or vaping in the apartment. You may smoke or vape outdoors, including the back deck.
No candles are allowed except for the tealights in the candleholder on the dining table.
If you would like to use the propane grill on the back deck, please let us know in advance and tell us when you finish using it so we can make sure it has been turned off properly.
No towels or other linens are to leave the apartment except for the utility towels that can be found rolled up in a basket in the bedroom closet. Take these with you to the beach or park.
Rocky and Cheri have lived in the Port Townsend area for 12 years. We love our sustainable agriculture lifestyle, which includes generous amounts of gardening, music, dancing, books, art, and lots of amazing food. We love sharing these aspects of our life with guests, but will respect your privacy while you're here. We strive to be as available as you'd like us to be, but inconspicuous when you want time alone with your loved ones or your own thoughts. Our goal is to facilitate your comfort and help you feel entirely at home.
