After many EXHAUSTNG days at Fort Hood we are finally on a much needed vacation.  Our destination - Gig Harbor, Washington.  We were going to stay in Seattle, but when we found this house for rent we decided we needed the calm and relaxation of the Minter House.  This house is about 45 minutes from SeaTac airport and totally off one of the most beautiful beaten paths you ever drive.  It backs up to a stream that feeds off the Puget Sound into a salmon hatchery.  The only problem we had with this house is that once we arrived we really didn't want to leave the property.  It was so peaceful and the wildlife was abundant.  Here is a tour of the Minter House

When you walk into the house the first thing you see the fully functioning kitchen.  They must have known I was coming because there was a bottle of Merlot waiting on the counter just for us!     
The kids stayed had their own staircase that took them to their bedroom.  There was a king size bed as well as a twin, and they had their own bathroom.
This room is where Grammy (AKA- MIL) stayed.  It was on the first level, she also had her own bathroom.
 Hubby and I stayed in the master suite (up a different set of stairs) we had an amazing view of the Sound.
And of course we had our own bathroom as well - the only problem with our bathroom, we couldn't keep the kids out of the tub. 
The living area - the house has wi-fi and cable. 
This is a smaller house across the driveway attached to the garage and it is used as a game room, however the sofa turns into a hide-a-bed.  This suite also has a bathroom with a shower making this the perfect place for the two teenage
boys to live for the week.
The most spectacular thing about the Minter House is the back deck, in this post you will see why:  Gig Harbor in the Morning.
