Inn: Showplace

This 10,000 square foot three-story Art Deco showplace was designed with no budget, and built in 1937 by renowned Seattle architect, Lionel Pries. According to legend, the home became “The Grand Entertainment Capital of the Canal Region.”  Clark Gable slept in the room with the private balcony; his photograph is still on the dresser.
Extraordinary formal gardens are accented by a goldfish pond with lily pads and ambling paths to the beach with a 300 foot private pier and floating dock.  Dock can accommodate guests, boats, or can be used for fishing by guests.  Arrive in your own sea plane. 

5 theme guest rooms fully restored with modern comforts, each unique with special decorative period pieces.  All rooms have spas, elegant private baths and heated towel racks.  The premier guest room features a marble Art Deco fireplace and original built-in fantasy vanity, one of the many valuable vintage pieces.  Copper-framed fireplaces, walnut paneling, scarlet wool carpeting and glistening parquet floors contribute to the luscious ambiance.

Enjoy heated salt water swimming pool, croquet, and game room with billiard table.  Relax in the splendid library with views of the Hood Canal and surrounding mountains.  Sumptuous dinner by reservation (organic food).  Tariff includes complete gourmet breakfast, wine and cheese every afternoon.  Reserve the entire estate.
