I LOVE Chevy Chase! Visit about 3-4/year or whenever we can swing it. My dog, Charlie, starts whimpering right when we get off the ferry because he knows where we are heading :-) (A BIG plus is that Chevy is super dog friendly!!) So close to Seattle area but yet so far away in most other respects. This is the most relaxing, peaceful and restful destination ever! Not that we just lounge around.. (but we do our fair share!).. because you can do as much.. or as little.. as you want! Hard to lounge too much as Charlie races to greet Scout (the resident dog), and they run into circles playing and catching up.Then its down to the beach.. via the cute little bridge and trail, just a stones throw away. What a beach! We walk for miles! The pristine view, the eagles, the sunset. All the stresses of life evaporate. Then its back to the Clubhouse (where we usually stay) with its amazing amenities- everything you could want! The quaint, immaculate interiors with fireplace, comfy beds and sofas (with special sheet for the dog so he can relax next to me while I read a book), wifi (if you feel the need to get connected), fully equiped kitchen and outside deck/BBQ.. Did I mention the view? Spectacular!
Pt. Townsend with its cute little shops and eateries is 10 min away. But why eat out when you can grill up some steaks and have a bottle of wine on the deck overlooking the gorgeous Discovery Bay?
Of course the people who run the place bend over backwards to make your stay all that it can be... and more! Chevy Chase is a rare find and books up fast in the summer (esp with the heated pool, tetherball, and charming old tennis courts). Lots of hiking nearby on the Larry Scott trail that can take you all the way in to Pt. Townsend.
OK.. I think I need to go book another stay now. (Easy to do on line as well.. )
Enjoy this amazing get-away. Once you go there, I promise you will return!
