Life on Marrowstone Island, Washington: A Quiet Life on the Water

Embracing Tranquility on the Puget Sound

More About Us

Just 30 minutes from Port Townsend, Marrowstone Island offers a tranquil locale where farmland meets the waters of the Salish Sea. If you’re searching for a quiet homestead, this is the place, as fewer than 1,000 residents call Marrowstone home. Several state parks on the island offer plenty of walking trails and water access, and all that the Olympic Peninsula has to offer—from outdoor activities to farmers markets and festivals—is a short drive away.


Custom Homes on Marrowstone

Finding a lot to purchase on Marrowstone Island can be a challenge, as inventory is typically low; a tear-down property might also be an option. And be sure to work with a builder like Estes to evaluate the land to ensure it is buildable and doesn’t carry restrictions that would strict how and what you design.

Here are just a few of the highlights of owning a home on Marrowstone Island:

  • With numerous parks and public spaces—both forested and beachfront—there’s plenty of space to walk and recreate minutes from your door. This includes Fort Flagler State Park, which features mountain and water views, old military buildings, trails, and camping.
  • In nearby Port Townsend, you’ll find beautiful Victorian homes, cute shops, restaurants, and lots of outdoor activities, such as Fort Worden State Park and North Beach. From downtown you also can hop the ferry to Whidbey Island for a fun and easy day trip or long weekend.  
  • Head over to Chimacum to experience the beloved Chimacum Corner Farmstand and the popular Finn River Farm & Cidery.
  • Enjoy easy access to many other hotspots around the Olympic Peninsula, including hiking and oysters in Quilcene to the south and the lavender farms and sunshine of Sequim to the west.
