One of the three listings on our 10 acre property in the woods just a 5 minute walk up from the Puget Sound, this little cottage is the perfect weekend getaway or writer’s retreat.

El alojamiento

The "Little House," as we have always called it, is the perfect quaint romantic getaway or rustic writer's retreat. It's cozy and completely self-contained with one bedroom, a living room that includes the original brick fireplace, and a spacious newly refurbished kitchen with washer and drier. The bathroom features a small (and short!) clawfoot tub.

It feels the most 'urban' of our properties because it is closest to the gravel road, closer to the water, and is within sight of a few neighbors, including our great, great grandfather's craftsman style (c. 1897) home. It still feels private since it is tucked into the woods. Through the trees you can also see the water and, if you look carefully, the shores of Lincoln Park in West Seattle.

This 1905 cabin used to belong to our Aunty Suzy and cousins Vicky and Brad, our family antique collectors, and we have lovingly decorated it with a number of their curio's.

We are just 1.5 miles from the Southworth ferry dock; you can walk here in 30 minutes or drive it in 5.

Altogether there are three separate homes on the property that can together accommodate up to 15 - 17 during summer - plus a small studio for events & yoga tucked into a bamboo grove, which can accommodate up to 20 people (book separately). We also have an organic garden, fresh eggs daily from our chickens, and a few informal trails to explore.

We also live on the property so you may see people wandering around from time to time but all units are completely private, separate and tucked away in the woods.

This is a peaceful spot and the ultimate in "slow-life" where you truly step back in time. A cozy place for a couple or perfect for anyone seeking solitude and a slower pace, surrounded by nature. While quite comfortable, we still hand-wash our dishes, bbq using charcoal and chop wood for the wood stoves and fireplaces. Only 40 minutes from Seattle by ferry (25 minutes, if you happen to catch the direct ferry), this is a wonderful place to unhook from your fast-paced life and curl up with a book and a cup of tea in front of a roaring fire.

It is a short walk downhill to the new Harper Pier which includes a water-level dock with swimming ladder; you can jump off into the brisk Puget Sound! Squid fishermen and local anglers also hang out on the pier or fly fish from the rocky beach. Next to it is a funky coffee shop that is open when it suits the friendly owners.

We do consider pets on a case by case basis. A $35 fee may apply with a short list of house rules for pet owners.

Servicios y zonas comunes

Guests have access to the entire house, the grounds, some informal trails on the property, a delightful seasonable heirloom garden, and fresh eggs from our hens. We also provide a starter supply of firewood.

Atención a los huéspedes

The owners live on the property as well and although their home is private, they are available to answer any and all questions. There are three rental homes on the property so you may run into other guests as well.

Otros aspectos destacables

If you are taking the ferry across, we suggest you stock up at PCC, Trader Joe's, or Thriftway in West Seattle as the gastronomic choices are better on that side. Once on the peninsula, the Fred Meyer nearby has a reasonable organic & natural food section, and Central Market in Poulsbo is excellent.

Drive to Bremerton (30 mins), park your car there, and walk on to the ferry that takes you directly to downtown Seattle and the Pike Street Market.

The Fauntleroy Ferry is a 40 minute walk from the property; at the other end are a few nice restaurants, Lincoln Park with beaches, and an outdoor heated salt water pool!

We are perfectly situated to explore the Olympic Peninsula:

30 minutes from waterfront parks on both sides of the Kitsap Peninsula with stunning views of Seattle and the Cascades to the East, or Olympic National Park to the West.
30 minutes from Tacoma, Point Defiance Park and Zoo, old town antiques, and the Museum of Glass.
1 hour to historic Port Townsend
1.5 hours to Port Angeles and the ferry to Victoria, B.C.
1.5~2 hours to Lake Crescent, Olympic Nat'l Park, Hurricane Ridge, and Sol Duc Hot Springs
2~3 hours to La Push, Neah Bay Makah Tribal Center, Pacific beaches, and the Hoh Rain Forest
2 Hours to Mount Rainier National Park

I cannot give Fran and Michael's little cabin on Harper Hill enough stars. Where do I even begin?! I am a writer, and I wanted a place that would take me out of the city and give me space and peace to work on a few projects. This house proved to be the perfect venue for my retreat. The house is cozy, perfect for me and my little 9 lb. dog. The bed was extremely comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with all the pots, pans, etc I needed for the month. I made many fires in the fireplace at night and got some great photos of the deer that would come to the yard to graze. The house is, in a word, idyllic. Secluded without being isolated. Rustic without being rough. Plus, there's some great history associated with the place, and Fran will gladly tell you if you ask! Fran was an excellent host and a clear communicator. When I arrived the lights and heat were on and Fran had left the keys on the table with a little gift basket of coffee and treats. The fridge had been stocked with fresh eggs from her chickens and yogurt for breakfast the next morning. Additionally, she had cut fresh flowers and placed them around the house. (She also couldn't be a sweeter woman, and I enjoyed my few conversations with her.) There was only one issue with the property in the month I was there (a small plumbing issue, easily resolved) and Fran come over immediately to take care of it. She was quick to respond to all my emails and texts. The area offers a lot to see and explore. There is a beach just down the hill where I went every day to write on the dock, go for a run, or take photos of birds and boats on Puget Sound. There are a few cute restaurants in Port Orchard and the surrounding area. It is about an hour into Seattle (I took the ferry -- so fun!) and there are several great hikes not far from the house. I liked Manchester State Park. I bought all my meat from a local butcher and groceries at the Farmer's Market. I also picked strawberries from Fran's garden -- so good! All in all, this is a terrific getaway for a writer, a couple looking for a romantic getaway, or a couple of adventurers who want to take in some scenery. I will definitely be returning!

Such a wonderful retreat! The little red house is the perfect getaway from the busy of life. We so enjoyed the fireplace and quiet on Fran and Michael's property. Very private and secluded but driving distance close to town or other adventures nearby. There were fresh cut flowers all over the house and a notebook explaining all the odds and ends about the property which was very helpful! Fran was available immediately by text and everything was perfect! Could not have wished for a better place to stay.

Quiet, dark, accessible, cozy. Near the water, a part of the woods, antique touches, a cabin, a hearth.

Fran's little cabin is wonderful and cozy, and the Harper Hill grounds are beautiful. She was extremely responsive with communications before and during our stay, and was thoughtful and generous with a snack basket and fresh eggs from the chickens. We loved exploring Kitsap and highly recommend Fran and the Little Red House!

This property has been in our family for seven generations. In the early days, our relatives spent happy summers on the hill living in simple, utilitarian tent platforms while enjoying the woods and time together. Over the years, uninsulated bunkhouses, cabins and cottages replaced tents and eventually some family moved to live here all year round.

People often say that the minute they step foot on the hill, they feel that it is very special. It is a place to rest, relax, rejuvenate, spend time with others, and enjoy the natural beauty of the woods. Truly an “old-school” Pacific NW retreat!

This is our second season renting on Airbnb and we thoroughly enjoy our guests!
