Welcome to Shore Lane Beach House - your waterfront retreat!
3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 9.
Less than 2 hours from Seattle right on Puget Sound's Oakland Bay near Shelton, Washington. Experience waterfront living at its best. Enjoy the recent whole house renovation!
Escape to the beautifully decorated water front retreat. Shore Lane Beach House offers three bedrooms, one and three quarter bathrooms on three levels totaling 1400 square feet. All rooms (except for one bedroom) have superb views of the water.
It is a great set up for adults and kids. Send the kids to the downstairs living area to play games or watch TV in the evenings while you enjoy the view and conversation on the main floor. Kids can sleep in the bunk room with their choice of upper bunk, lower bunk, or trundle.
On the main floor, step outside the French doors onto the covered deck right off the dining and living areas. Enjoy the water view while you prepare meals in the fully equipped kitchen featuring brand new stainless appliances, maple cabinets, oil rubbed bronze hardware, and granite countertops.
Later retreat to either of two upstairs bedrooms. Pick the waterside room with the king bed, cable TV and balcony overlooking the bay, or relax on the queen size bed in the tastefully appointed blue room.
You'll find a full bath with a bathtub/shower, tile tub surround and granite counter vanity on the third floor as well.
About the Water ~~
Shore Lane Beach House is located on the east side of Oakland Bay. Look across the water and see the city of Shelton - the lights are beautiful at night. Saunter down a few stairs to the beach which is great fun to beach comb any time of year. In the heat of summer, the water is refreshing and surprisingly warm. You'll see playful seals frolicking and salmon jumping in the water. At high tide, you can catch fish off the lower deck or simply cast from shore and reel them in! In summer, the water is surprisingly warm to take a dip to refresh. If it's kayaks you prefer in the calm Oakland Bay waters, a rental shop in Allyn (North Bay Kayak) will deliver!
Things To Do ~~
Shelton and the surrounding areas offer plenty to do for everyone. Sit on the covered deck, rain or shine, and take in the amazing Puget Sound view. Get warm by the campfire right in the backyard, also with a gorgeous view. Walk north up the beach for an hour without seeing any houses - just the wonders of nature. Experience fishing, wildlife viewing, or visit the Olympic National Rainforest less than 45 minutes away.
Perhaps you'd like to catch a flick at the drive-in movie theater, try your luck at the Little Creek Casino, take the family out to eat, or enjoy Kneeland Park with its gigantic playground, grassy areas and beautiful picnic shelter.
If you stay during summer time, take a dip in the beautiful, private community heated swimming pool just a few blocks away. It's free to use for guests of Shore Lane Beach House!

"The house was as advertised. Plenty of space. Our family (4 kids between 3-11) had some bad timing. A burn ban kept us from using the fire pit. Poor air quality kept us from using the pool. The pool closed for our entire trip and my kids were in tears. We picked this house due to the pool. Of note, the pool is more like a public pool. The VRBO doesn't mention the dollar per person charge - but the rental contract did. The Rental contract didn't mention the ant problem in the house. But after we paid, the welcome message instructed us to clean up after ourselves to help with the ants. Most of the ones we saw were in the bathrooms. Speaking of bugs, my kids counted 12 large brown spiders (with webs) on the porch by the front door. My wife and I both got spider bites - the kids did not. You'd think the cleaning charge would include a quick web sweep... The back yard was dead grass and weeds (pretty standard for the PNW), but the picture shows green grass. My littlest kids got multiple splinters from the railing on the stairs that led to the beach. They also could not get up or down the last few rock steps that lead to the beach - as I'm sure any person with mobility concerns would. We walked the beach during low tide but didn't make it far. The beach at low tide has thick mud that would overflow into your sandals, and it smelt like low tide. We did take to the water (because the pool was closed). It was pretty gross, but we put on our best smile to help the kids have fun. We paddled our surfboards from the shoreline, hoping to find some clean water further out. Never happened. Dead bugs, bird droppings, and overall yuck went on as far as we could paddle - I guess I should have researched better. It makes sense based on where the house is located. Others: I asked to check in one hour early but was denied due to maid service. On the day of checkout, the maids were parked outside the house at 1030 as we were departing. I called to check out a day early due to the pool closure - no refund offered. It did smell like kitty litter on the bottom floor - I think a separate post observed a similar odor. We use VRBO often. I think families with kids can do better for the $."
