You’ll feel so far away from the city, even though getting here was so easy. You can’t help but relax in this magical spot as you listen to the waves, watch the tide, and spot blue herons, eagles and seals. Walk the beach, enjoy the view from the deck, nap in the hammock on the lawn, or build a cozy fire – indoors or out. Camp Mid at Gilberton has been my family’s relaxing beach compound for over 100 years. The house and location are perfect for photo shoots. The remote and forested Puget Sound lot and beach has much easier/quicker access than the San Juan Islands. The house and grounds would also work well for a small meeting, or board retreat for groups of 10 or less looking for a nearby getaway. The House: The butterfly roof single story cedar home was built by my father (a home builder) in 1957. Completely remodeled in 2011, it now has a Nano-wall of glass that completely opens the home to the cantilevered view deck, 100 feet above the Sound. The 1,000 square foot floor plan has an open kitchen-living-dining space perfect for intimate gatherings. The antique claw foot dining table can easily sit six – and has capacity to expand much further, but most gatherings seem to move easily to the deck and adjoining yard. There’s a wood burning fireplace and large video screen in the great room. To the rear of the house are two bedrooms and a large super-modern bath. The Yard: Off the deck, to the side of the house is a huge private forested yard with lawn overlooking the Sound with a patio, picnic table, fire pit, lounge chairs and relaxing hammock. It’s a 100 staircase climb down to the mostly sandy beach for access to kayaks, canoe, and dock. Depending on the tides, Gilberton can offer beautiful large, long beach days. The Location: Camp Mid at Gilberton is an easy 7 miles from the Bremerton Ferry Dock. You can also get here via Bainbridge or Kingston Ferries or drive around from Tacoma. The house faces north with beautiful views of Mount Baker and the west side of Bainbridge Island. The Brownsville marina is one mile away.
