This is an owner occupied house. Two bedrooms are available together or individually. This listing is the rental of one bedroom with 1.5 shared bathrooms. The summer rate for renting use of the whole house with the two bedrooms is $250 per night. The only space that would be shared with the owner is the kitchen. Your privacy is of utmost concern to the owner. The Inn is located only four houses from beautiful Gig Harbor Bay.

About the neighbourhood
Whew! No banging doors, no car doors slamming, no freeway noise! The Parsonage is located in a residential neighborhood. With Mt. Rainier looming majestic as a backdrop to Gig Harbor Bay, this is one of the most lovely places on earth! Gig Harbor is very centrally located to seeing many of the famous sites of Washington. Of course, everyone should spend some time in Seattle. The Seattle Center is only the starting point, from the Pacific Science Center, Space Needle, Dale Chihuly glass art and garden museum to a variety of children's activities. A visit to Poulsbo, a Scandinavian village, is only 50 minutes from The Parsonage. Take a ferry ride to Seattle, drive through Northwest Trek to see a wide range of animals in protected habitat, or drive to LaConnor, a Dutch village. Your ...
Getting around
A rental car is needed to explore greater Gig Harbor and outlying areas and other cities. Guests can walk the downtown area and Gig Harbor offers a shuttle in the summer to Uptown Gig Harbor for the Imax theater, the Gig Harbor theater, other shops and restaurants and grocery stores.
