1997 Country Coach Intrigue 32'
Stayed with us one night and we had a good visit--we hope to go north west in the not to distant future
they are welcome back any time
They have a straight shot view of Mt. Rainier (however it was not visible for us due to smoke). They have a big grass area which was great for our dog. We took a nice walk to a sandy shore. The hosts were very friendly and we enjoyed having a drink down by the water one evening! One thing to keep in mind is the toll for the Tacoma Narrows bridge ($6/car + $3/axel). Would certainly return if passing through again!
We spent a great two nights and really had a nice time. They have 3 great dogs, but they are small and they keep them in a separate room if you not a 'dog person.' We are dog friendly and we shared our attention between our host and hostess and playing with the dogs. A good time was had by all.
This is a wonderful place and we look forward to returning when we pass through.
FYI!! Get phone directions. They are simple directions, but some GPS maps are not correct.
We had a quick stopover on fox Island and our hosts were very gracious. They went out of their way to print directions to various attractions our family might enjoy. Though we could not stay long, we enjoyed the peaceful setting and the gorgeous sunset over the water.
