1/2 bath and laundry room conveniently located near the front entryway.

Huge kitchen with gas range, microwave, coffee pot, hot water maker for tea, toaster, bar-style seating and a dining table that can seat up to 10.

The main level has three private bedrooms. Two rooms have two queen sized beds, one room has one queen sized bed.

Our guest bathroom is equipped with a custom tile walk-in shower, heated no-fog vanity mirror, plenty of hooks and places to keep your toiletries during your stay.

The main level has in floor heat so your feet are always toasty.

The upper level is Captain’s Quarters…a master bedroom/bathroom with a contemporary open floor plan.

The water-side of the house has a wrap-around deck, comfy deck chairs & stunning scenery. It’s a great place to relax after a busy day of adventuring!

Captain Kurt’s fish cleaning station is situated near the deck. You can watch him skillfully fillet your day’s catch and perhaps get a good look at a hungry bald eagle in search of rockfish carcasses.

Our boat launch is used to deploy small skiffs and kayaks into Big Salt Lake; a fun place to explore, enjoy the scenery, and look for wildlife.

Just across the boat launch is Trina’s Pyromania Activity Center. Custom built stainless steel panels by Tom Ford of Untamed Design, LLC in Gillette, Wyoming and assisted by her brother Tri, the 6’ diameter fire pit is a functional work of art. From bonfires to s’mores (and sometimes fireworks) this is a comfy area to swap fish tales at the end of a fun day.

In the Attached Garage you will find two mini-fridges for your adult beverages, as well as recycling bins for aluminum cans only. Our fish processing station includes a state of the art Multi-Vac vacuum sealer, two large chest freezers and one upright freezer for professional care of your fresh catch.

In the Summertime our yard is bursting with blueberries, huckleberries and salmonberries which Trina uses in many recipes and you are welcome to pick as well. Our yard also hosts Rufous hummingbirds, Winter wrens, Varied Thrushes, Robins, Ravens, Bald eagles, Sitka black-tailed deer, and a very well-fed mink. Our lake is home to Harbor seals, dungeness crab, migrating salmon, Red breasted, Common, and Hooded mergansers, Common loons, Canada geese, Belted kingfishers, Marbled murrelets, an occasional sea otter, and even more rarely, transient killer whales!

Beyond the yard, you can stretch your legs for a quick 1/2 mile walk to the end of the road where you can see the “salt chuck” our road is named for (one of the two narrow entrance/exit points for water as the the tides change). A few offshoot logging roads nearby offer pretty views and berry-picking.
