Why Darnell Foskett chose Hoodsport

This property has been a popular scuba diving destination for over 20 years. It is within hours of Seattle and Portland Oregon. The hood canal is known world wide for its large pacific octopus, Wolf Eels, Crab, squid etc... The canal is unique that most diving is done by shore and the weather has never cancelled a dive. BEYOND the diving it is a great location at the foot of the Olympic mountains. The house is located north of Shelton but less than an hour from Olympia, Washington. You can choose to go hiking, kayaking, crabbing, fishing, golfing or relaxing at a local casino, all within an hours drive. It is the perfect place to get away, without having to drive for hours. You are able to change your mind or plans with little effort. Most everyone in your group can be accommodated. This house has grown from a divers paradise to a group getaway paradise.

What makes this house unique

The house was a farm house built sometime in the 1920's (?) so the locals say. Nobody knows for sure. The house still boasts its unique character - cedar walls, long front porch and a barn on site. The house is solid wood on the upper floors. When you first walk in you see the exposed cedar ceiling and wood floors. We have updated the property to modern conveniences, without losing the charm of the 1920's farm house. The windows are updated vinyl, but were built to replace the original wood windows with leaded glass. You get the charm of an old farm house by the water with modern day conveniences.

Yakima Dive Club's Spring Diving Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great weekend at the Yellow House was enjoyed by the 13 adventurers.

Weather outside was rainy, but once below the surface of the Hood Canal waters, as SCUBA divers, it made no difference.

The Yellow House, outside bbq & oyster grill, hot tub and 'Divers Inn' were great.

A fun place to make new friends, share tales, enjoy foods & beverages and at the end of the weekend, take home great memories.

Nice to be within a couple blocks of grocery store, gas station, restaurants and Hoodsport n Dive shop.

Good internet connectivity, big screen tv, streaming for the tv and plenty of dvd's, books and board games to enjoy by all.

The large parking area was more than adequate for all our vehicles.

The Yakima Dive Club highly recommends The Yellow House to all dive clubs and dive groups. It is a great place for non diving groups too.

We shall return for more adventures later this summer/fall.

Owner's Response: This is the place to make memories, whether they be chats in the hot tub gossip on the decks or funny stories at the dinner table. Truly a place for the "whole gang" to hang out.

Great place to relax and enjoy nature as you build community

with friends and family. Many water activities as well as hiking nearby and strolling through the shops, winery and distillery in town. Some of the best Scuba Diving locations in the Pacific Northwest including the Sund Rock Marine life preserve. A short drive south into Shelton you can explore a historic logging town filled with antique shops. Sample fresh local oysters and clams at Hamma Hamma and Taylor Shellfish.

For those who like to gamble there are 2 Casinos nearby.
