Strawbale House in the Forest Near Olympic Peninsula
We live in the forest between Seattle and the Olympic Peninsula. The air is wonderful here. This is a non-smoking home and also mostly fragrance-free, so we hope you are, too.
Our Home & Location
Our strawbale house has 20" thick walls and radiant heat in the floors. Very quiet and solid. There is a woodstove and plenty of firewood. We are on our own well and the water is really good. Our property is about 4 acres of forest, 2.5 miles from an excellent "destination" supermarket. Wifi.
Poulsbo is a nice little town (https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2016/nov/03/10-best-us-small-towns-readers-travel-tips-united-states-america). You can easily visit the Olympic Peninsula, the Olympic National Parks, Lake Crescent, Port Townsend, Cape Flattery and the Makah Nation (a great museum there about this native American tribe), Forks, La Push, the wild Washington Pacific coast, as well as hopping a ferry to Seattle any time you want (if you miss the traffic...)
Responsibilities & Pets
Kebab is a a healthy, happy Pembroke Welsh Corgi complete with tail. He is svelt, but very strong, so don't think that just because he is short he can't yank you off your feet (not a little ol' lady's doggie). He is a great hiker, can go miles, tough as nails and just likes to be with people. Kebab is a wonderful companion! He is happy to hang out in the car waiting for you, without whining or barking. He is not yappy or an excessive barker. Loves his squeaky ball. He has a fenced yard which he can access at all times through a cat door, but he is used to someone being around most of the time. He needs a couple of miles of walkie each day, or take him on an all day hike on some of the nearby trails. Not great when it is hot, but he LOVES snow. He is brave as anything, and will play with any dog, regardless of size, though lately he has gotten to be not nice around puppies, so I don't take him to the dog park anymore. Don't know why, but it is definitely his problem, not theirs.
