Reflections on a perfect day at
ComPass the Time

The first thing I noticed as I awoke that morning was the utter silence of this serene setting. I wandered up to the kitchen, put on some coffee, and sat back on the covered deck in one of those beautiful hand-made Adirondack chairs, with a hand-crocheted blanket over my shoulders, and watched the sun peek through the thick trees. All you could hear was the babbling of the creek below, and the rumble of the waves in the distance. Ahhh! The dog came out to join me, although she seemed not to want to get up from the comfy bed inside her own vacation-home crate!

After finally coaxing everyone else to climb out of their memory-foam beds and enjoy the fresh-made waffle breakfast at the built-in nook , we took a short walk through Seabrook. Passing the new Town Hall, indoor pool, parks, and shops, all just a few steps away, it was amazing to realize how close to everything this house in Madison Lane was, yet it was still so private and quiet.

And, of course, the beach! After hours of riding the beach cruisers through the town, playing in the surf, making sand castles, trying our hand at clamming, and letting the dog chase the ball, we returned "home" for lunch, just before a passing dose of liquid sunshine! We were even able to rinse off our feet (and paws) at the hot water bib next to the front porch.

Even though we were inside for a while, there was still plenty to do. We played games and read books in front of the gas fireplace, and listened to our music on the Bose deck. There were even maps, books and photos of travel from around the world to peruse and enjoy. The kids had a ball – their room just looked like fun – even for adults! With their own HDTV, BlueRay, Wii system, books, games, toys, art supplies – they could have spent all day in there!

As the clouds cleared and the now re-emergent sun dropped towards evening, we had a great barbequed dinner at the picnic table (everything was there – every utensil, appliance, or spice you could need!). Moving into the spacious living room, we cuddled into the soft, comfy couch and chairs, and watched a movie on the big HDTV. After getting the kids ready for bed (which was easy, with the two sinks and large bathroom!), it was our time.

Just two steps out the master bedroom and we sunk into the beautiful hot tub! With the jets soaking away the worries, looking back up through those trees, enjoying a glass of wine in complete privacy, and then, finally, retiring to the king-sized bed just steps away. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day. I can think of no better way, or place, to ComPass the Time!

Please note: The property is located approximately one flight down from street level on one side. It is located in Madison Lane's incredible sloped wooded lots with a front porch overlooking the woods.

Overall a really great experience.
When we drove up the first day, it was like arriving on a movie set. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Seabrook as it is still growing. We hiked down to the beach along the gnome trail. Watched sunrises and sunsets right along Front St. Biked all over town. Painted pottery. Chatted with Crafty Christine. Watched a wedding (from a distance). Enjoyed tasty burgers at Mill 109, and delicious gelato from Front St Market (plus the homemade ice cream sandwiches Saturday night). Just sitting together enjoying the town music and ambiance felt very special. Our daughter's two favorite things were walking by herself to Red Velvet Bakery and buying her own cupcake. She got to spend Saturday morning learning how to take care of and ride a horse at Windgate Equestrian. It was a great first experience with horses. Zaavier is the kindest soul. My husband and I really enjoyed getting to know some of the locals and Betsy at The Stowaway Wine Bar. She took great care of us. We could really understand why people move to Seabrook. ComPass The Time was a perfect fit for our family. Everything you would hope a beach house would have was there. The owners really were thoughtful in there planning out all the books, games and movies. Plus setting up nice quiet moments to enjoy the trees outside on the deck. It was a great experience for our family to bond. We hope to come back and enjoy more of Seabrook next time. Thank you! -The Withingtons

We enjoyed the beach, shell hunting, red velvet cupcakes, and riding bikes. We also had fun visiting Lake Quinault, Windgate Equestrian, Ruby Beach, and the gnome trail. We love this house.

We loved the quiet! Also the hot tub, kitchen, netflix, the town, the gnome homes (so cute!). The house was way more than I expected. Wish I could buy a place here. We enjoyed our time, including walks through the woods, drives around in & out of town, pop ran at 11:30 p.m. With my son, never laughed so hard.

Our favorite things were the hot tub! Netflix selection, games, Jackson loved the legos. Also riding bikes and enjoying the sandy beach. We also went swimming (Jackson's 1st time in a pool), had fun relaxing at home, as well as walking the town. Your home is very welcoming and well-stocked. We love Seabrook and enjoyed your home. Very family-friendly. Loved cooking in the kitchen.

Excellent experiences with everyone we met!
We will definitely return to Seabrook. Everything was excellent. ComPass the Time had absolutely everything we needed for our stay. We felt somewhat spoiled by the amenities, quality, and beauty of ComPass the Time; we may need to stay only in this cottage in the future! I am a papercrafter and loved the use of the paper pinwheels in its decor.

We really enjoyed the hot tub and king size bed! Also catching up on rest and relaxation! Quiet time and spending time together with our dog, eating good food and just hanging out. This trip was about saying goodbye to our old friend Libby, spread her ashes on the beach where the rest of our faithful friends rest in peace-we will meet again someday. We've been coming to Seabrook for many years, stayed in several cabins & homes but, I have to say, this has been my favorite. You have everything we needed and then some. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

We loved the beach! The hot tub, the amazing neighborhood, it's like stepping back in time! Just lovely. I love the wood layered photo of Salish sea. Absolutely beautiful! We not only went to the beach, we also spent time bike riding, exploring trails, reading books, playing board games, and making memories. And we celebrated Magnolia's 5th birthday. Your home is well-appointed. Thank you for sharing it. Thank you for the beach towel gift. Very thoughtful!
