Discover the vibrant history, agricultural richness, and scenic beauty of the Chimacum Valley in one of our Port Hadlock vacation rentals. The isolated community combines the old world of sailing fleets and industry ports with modern attractions to create a unique experience only found on the Olympic Peninsula. Kayak out to sea, sample artisan cheese and wine, and purchase oysters on the beach in the Evergreen State!
Our selection of Port Hadlock vacation rentals are located in the northeastern corner of the Olympic Peninsula, just ten miles south of Port Townsend. Just across the Port Townsend Bay (but connected via bridge), Marrowstone Island offers goat farms and strawberry fields, and the small town of Nordland has vineyards and art galleries. The communities of Port Hadlock, Chimacum, and Irondale are often referred to as the “tri-area", and the region makes a peaceful home base to explore the eastern side of the Olympic Peninsula.
The Chimacum Valley has become an artisan food destination, known for grass-fed meat, artisan cheeses, and organic produce—so foodies will certainly appreciate having a full kitchen in our Port Hadlock vacation rentals! Get hands on with fruits and vegetables at the Red Dog Farm stand for the finest seasonal produce and beef from Shorts' Family Farm. Pick up fresh milk from Dungeness Valley Creamery, root crops from Midori Farm, and goat cheese from Mystery Bay Farm at the Chimacum Corner Farmstand. Once you've filled your grocery bags, visit Finn River Farm for some of the Pacific Northwest's finest hard ciders.
Whether exploring by motor or man-power, our Port Hadlock vacation rentals offer endless outdoor adventure! Launch your boat at the Port Hadlock Marina, featuring fantastic access to the Strait of Juan De Fuca and the San Juan Islands, or tour the world-renown facilities and gorgeous craftsmen boats at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding. Picnic and swim at Irondale Beach Park, hike through groves of cedar and fir at Gibbs Lake, or fish for trout and ride horses at Anderson Lake State Park.
Of course, a bit further inland, the entire Olympic National Forest and Olympic National Park await! Gorgeous hiking trails, hidden waterfalls, and snow-capped peaks provide a lifetime of adventures within an easy drive of Port Hadlock - the boundaries of the National Forest are less than 15 miles away.
So raise your wine glass and sink your teeth into a hunk of cheese before your next great adventure against the backdrop of the sea. Discover what makes our Port Hadlock vacation rentals, and this entire beautiful region, so unique!
