Agate Beach House On Hammersley Inlet - Beautiful Puget Sound Water Front
"Great home away from home!". What a little gem! We had a wonderful time at Agate Beach House. Being from MN, we werent accustomed to tide waters so it was really intriguing to watch the change in water level. Lovely neighbors on both sides shared so much information about the tide, clam bags, oyster/clam bakes, and the surrounding area. The location was ideal for us as we had planned on traveling both to Seattle as well as to the northwest coast. It is quite a drive to Seattle. So if you are planning on spending a lot of time in the city, plan on driving. We drive to Bremerton to catch the ferry to Seattle one day and that was an enjoyable way to travel to Seattle! But other than two days in the city, we drive west and visited the Hoh Rainforest and Rialto Beach area. Both amazingly beautiful experiences! Coming. Back to the beach house was welcoming with its beautiful views of the inlet. Very quiet and peaceful. Watch for a variety of boats coming through. Barges, tugs, fishing, sailboats. The grounds around the home are stunning! A little walk down to the water through the foliage is really pretty. It's a ways down to the water but once down it's fun to hunt for special rocks and treasures. If I had to comment on any negatives I guess it would have to be the fact there is no a/c in the house. It was a pretty warm week when we were there and got a little warm in the house at times but nothing that would ruin our stay. Also, the mattresses were quite harder than what we were used to. Again, just trying to give someone some honest information. The three bathrooms was a treat! I do wish we could have been down on the beach at any given time but I realize it doesn't work that way with the ocean water. Overall we all had an amazing time and this house was a great place for us to gather and plan all our NW adventures!"
