About Agate Beach House

For those seeking a peaceful nature retreat with stunning year-round water views, Agate Beach House is the perfect place to relax in solitude or gather with friends and family.

Privately nestled amidst towering fir trees, Agate Beach House offers wide-ranging views of Hammersely Inlet, 8-miles of winding saltwater connecting Oakland Bay with Puget Sound.

Watch the playful seals, fish from the beach, stroll on the beach at low tide and count the starfish, and (on rare but fortuitous occasions, usually during late summer) witness pods of splashing Orcas from the home’s wraparound deck.

Less than two hours’ drive from Seattle, Agate Beach House offers nearby conveniences and recreation including hiking, fishing, kayaking, wine tasting and fresh local seafood. Order kayaks, delivered from nearby Allyn, to paddle Hammersley Inlet’s nooks and crannies, whose shoreline residents include foxes, deer, and bald eagles.

Fresh local oysters, Dungeness crab, fresh and smoked clams can be purchased from nearby seafood retailers, and two local wine tasting rooms are within 20 miles’ drive of Agate Beach House, which sports a fully equipped gourmet kitchen complete with blender, professional waffle maker, and espresso machine.

Whether you are seeking a peaceful artist’s retreat or a gathering place for friends and family, Agate Beach House offers a comfortable, inspiring environment to gather one’s family or one’s thoughts.
