The Manor at South Bay offers a serene getaway to the country. Equestrian property provides the weary with peaceful surroundings of lilacs, green rolling pastures, walking trails, and wildlife, all just 6 minutes from I-5.

The house sits high on a hill and offers convenience and relative privacy. (A note about privacy can be found at the end of this description)

The Manor at South Bay is a 4 story, 4000 sf remodeled 1920's farm house located on 35 acres of pasture and trees, one mile from the Puget Sound waterfront and less than 10 minutes from historic downtown Olympia.

The remodel was done in 2005, and resulted in the addition of a large Master Suite, expanded kitchen, and other modern conveniences, however the Manor's roots is as a modest Farm House and accomodates families well, and is not too fancy for children.

Kitchen: For the culinary artists, you will love the large kitchen with double ovens, island, side by side sub zero fridge, two microwaves, 3 sinks and a modest selection of spices to use in preparing your own meals. We provide no food service.

Master: Large Master suite is almost completely windows on 3 sides, providing views of horses grazing in the pastures (seasonally), cherry trees, and Mt. Rainier. Master Bath includes two sinks and huge walk in double shower. Large HDTV plasma tv with DirecTV and DVD library also in Master. Pillowtop CA King Bed is as comfy as they come, and dressed in 800+ count egyptian cotton sheets, and you will never want to leave.

Rooms: In addition to the Master, there is a very large bedroom with a twin bed with memory foam mattress, a full size bed with pillow top mattress, and a Queen size bed with pillowtop. The third bedroom has a full size Antique iron bed with a memory foam topper. All of the above mentioned rooms are on the second floor. On the first floor, there is a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed, twin over full and a twin size roll away. Adjacent to this room is the library, where there is a very comfy Full Size pull out sofa. There is ample room all over the house to set up airbeds. We can provide 11 for no extra charge.

Back Patio: The best year round feature of the patio is the huge commercial grade hot tub! Always hot and ready to relax and soothe our guests. A close second to the hot tub is a fully functional BBQ and kitchen area, complete with 2 sinks, burners, and HUGE Lynx barbecue. There is also a crystal clear 100' lap pool (available Summer only), all surrounded by gorgeous, massive river rock wall.

Living Room: Floor to (vaulted) ceiling stunning river rock fireplace, 60' flat screen t.v. with DVD library and DirecTV, 3 large leather couches to accommodate large groups, (10 fold out chairs also available) ,heated slate floor, open beamed ceilings and ample windows set the scene for the perfect Pacific NW retreat.

Library: Gorgeous original wood floors and white brick fireplace with elegant mantle, well lit sitting area overlooks manicured grounds and horse pastures. Two extremely comfortable overstuffed chairs, the library is well stocked with literary classics and a stereo with ample classical music CDs for complete relaxation.

For the Equestrian Traveler: For those with horse interest, we offer a lovely cross country jump field, outdoor arena, riding trails, and stadium jumps all on site. You may also schedule a riding lesson in advance of your arrival, however there is a 200lb weight limit. We have one horse who can carry 215 lbs., and we will only serve 4 riders at a time for safety reasons. We have horses for complete beginners as well as the seasoned competitor.

Additional Amenities: Grass Volleyball court, 1 acre landscaped by famous arborist, Walking trails where deer, hawks, and eagles are frequent, Amazing Air Conditioning, horses available for riding (200lb weight limit), ping pong, foosball, basketball, tetherball.

Meals: The kitchen at The Manor is a chef's dream. We provide a large selection of pots/pans, and various cooking equipment if you would like to prepare your own meals.

Privacy, Continued: The property is home to about 20 horses, mostly rescues, and a riding academy. It is not only a working horse farm, but also requires maintenance to keep it in tip top shape for renters. The driveway is shared with riding students coming and going on Tues, Thurs, and Sat. and an animal caretaker who will visit 2x a day maximum to feed and water the animals. If you would prefer more privacy, let us know and we will direct riding lessons to an alternate entrance. This does not apply to weddings, as you are paying for the exclusive use of the estate, so all extra activities cease. What is mandatory is pool/spa maintenance daily around 11 am to maintain healthy chemical levels in each, once a week lawn mowing at a reasonable hour and not during any event you have planned, if an animal falls ill, a veterinarian may be called on site, Portapotties that are present during the summer months are serviced each Wed. morning, and the dumpster will be dumped each Thursday around 4pm.

Close To Everything, Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had such a fantastic stay at the Manor. Our family got together for a late holiday gathering and we couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations. This was my second stay at this property and it was really fun to see all of the improvements made to make the place even more guest friendly.
My family all raved about how comfy their beds were, and how the quiet country setting made sleeping in easy. My mom and uncle fought over who got to do the cooking, as the kitchen is huge and so easy to create meals in, the kids loved the Ping pong and horses and really always had plenty to do. The horses are super cute and actually come peek over the massive rock wall around the patio, looking for pets and treats. We fed them carrots and had permanent friends after that. The chickens are a riot as they just roam the property and come running to you if you look like you might have a snack to share.
We are already discussing next year's visit to the Manor. It couldn't be better kept, everything was just spotless! And the owner is very accessible and helpful when we had questions. Everything was set up in a way that made our stay relaxing and stress free. Attention to detail and lots of effort goes into the manors maintenance and it made for a lovely stay. 5 stars!

a must return vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
The memories of this place is still fresh in my mind. My sister and my two nephews had our first vacation together and no other place could have made this memorable except the Manor. clean, spacious and comfortable house. Misti was there to welcome us with a basket of fruits and a bottle of wine:)
I cant wait to schedule another vacation there very soon. I highly recommend anyone to try it and you will understand my excitement.

Wonderful Easter Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented this beautiful home to surprise our youngest sibling on his 40th Birthday which also fell on Easter weekend. We had such a wonderful time! The house is great, beautiful and clean. The grounds were just coming out of a hard winter but were still fantastic. The kids had an easter egg hunt, there were so many places to hide eggs, I only hope we found them all. We had kids ranging from 5 to 16 and all of them were so entertained. The house had space for all of us to hang out in small groups to catch up with each other and large enough areas to gather together. Misty was always available to answer questions and help us if we needed anything. The views from this property are amazing, Mt Rainer in the distance is breath taking! We thank you so much for this great home and sharing it with us! We look forward to renting again!

Our Happily Ever After

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the honor of spending our New Years Weekend at the Manor at South Bay, and bringing in the New Year with our Wedding. The Manor is so beautiful I found it so hard to pack up and leave. I am hoping to spend more time there this summer and get out to see more of the horses. I want to thank Misti for being readily available if we had any questions and for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. It truly was an Amazing time.

A Magical Place....

  • 5 of 5
I just returned home today, from a lovely weekend with the Family at the Manor. I almost cried when we left because I had such a great time and bonded with Butterfly, one of the sweetest horses I have ever been in contact with. The house reminded me of a storybook and I was easily able to relax and forget about any stresses in life. The rooms are all unique in decor and the house is much bigger than it looks! I actually got lost a few times, when we first arrived. The owner and staff are helpful and lovely people! My husband, brother, brother's gf and I were all able to enjoy a horseback riding lesson at the equestrian center, located just 2 miles from the Manor. The Instructor was amazing and really encouraged the first time riders which made them more confident in their riding abilities. I just loved all the time I spent with horses. My husband is now dealing with me wanting to purchase a horse and move to the countryside, as I have always wanted a horse! There is something magical about the Manor, and if you need a getaway, this is the place to go. Located only an hour from Seattle, which was a quick drive for my husband and I. We are planning to return as soon as possible. I miss the horses, especially Butterfly, and I miss the Manor, I felt instantly at home. It's a healing, peaceful place....
