Peacefully secluded, while still just around the corner from Port Townsend.
The owner's sons live in a nearby clearing of the same wooded lot. They are very kind and helpful and can offer a lot of local advice. (It's also nice to know that you are not entirely alone in the woods) They also have a happy French bulldog that made my children and mother laugh with his frolics. He'll come over to visit if you don't object. We never did.
We also found the house well stocked (eg, with coffee, soap, etc). That's a nice touch since invariably you are short one of these essentials on the first day.
