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 brand new, fully equipped kitchen featuring maple cabinets, oil rubbed bronze hardware, and granite countertops with slate backsplash.
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!
Now, if GOLF is your game, you will not be disappointed. Try the two nearby local courses, or truly test your skill at the prestigious Alderbrook, Gold Mountain, Trophy Lake, or Lakeland Village golf courses, all 20 to 35 miles from Shore Lane Beach House.

"We rented this house for a week so we could visit with my parents from Ohio. It's a well-maintained house that has a great view of the bay. It's about 20 minutes to town, making it a great place to have a relaxing vacation. The layout of the house was perfect for our needs. Having the kids downstairs and the adults upstairs was nice, although the stairs made me remember why I bought a ranch house! It was interesting to watch the tide come in and out. For most of the week, we had a couple of seals in the water just outside the house. We enjoyed watching them pop their heads out and swim around. While the house is pretty far away from most tourist activities, we really enjoyed our time here. It was nice and quiet the whole time. The only issue we had was that the weather in the area was pretty warm when we were there. The main living area became super hot even with fans blasting. Fortunately, the lower level remained cool and we had somewhere to escape the heat. The information from the owners was super helpful and all correspondence was quickly answered. Overall, every one of us enjoyed the property. The ages in our party ranged from 9 (who turned 10 while on vacation) to 59. It was a great week that we'll remember for a long time. If you're looking for a quiet retreat, this is the place!"
