The small city of Port Orchard rests on the shores of the Sinclair Inlet in Washington, 13 miles due west of Seattle. Here you’ll find a quaint, maritime way of life, with easy access to the outdoors and all that Seattle has to offer. Our Port Orchard vacation rentals are perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing escape in the Pacific Northwest.
While you’re here, explore the cute downtown area with its antique malls, restaurants, and locally owned shops. Extend your stroll to the marina, where in the evenings you can watch the flickering lights of passing ships and boats, and breathe in the fresh air. If you’re getting hungry, The Swimdeck Gastro Pub is a great spot to stop in for a quick bite and a pint. And don’t miss out on the adorable Hobbit House at The Brothers Greenhouse—you’ll feel like you just stepped into Middle Earth. The greenhouse also allows you to peruse fresh flowers or attend a variety of public events and workshops.
If it’s outdoor activity you crave, be sure to visit Blake Island Marine State Park. This recreational area is only accessible by boat—or kayak, if you’re feeling adventurous—and offers miles of trails for walking, hiking, or biking. You can also fish or dig for clams along the island shores, and cook them up in the fully-equipped kitchen of one of our Port Orchard rental homes. If you’re in search of some more remote wilderness, the Olympic National Forest is only about an hour away, and is home to some of Washington’s most incredible hikes and overlooks.
All the excitement of Seattle is accessible by road or ferry. If you choose the latter, board at the nearby town of Southworth and coast along the serene waters for a day of exploring Pike Place Market, the Seattle Art Museum, or countless shops and eateries. Be sure to score a six-pack or growler from a local brewery to enjoy later at one of our Port Orchard vacation rentals.
