Just outside of Port Angeles, and tucked away is Whiskey Creek Beach, a family owned and operated versatile property, with northwest history and a setting that takes us back to a simpler time. Loren Martin and Cassie Daughtrey had the wonderful opportunity to experience WCB first hand, staying the night in “Captain’s Quarters,” one of the six vintage cabins on 11 acres of historic Olympic Peninsula waterfront with a story and a future.

Chris Doucet, a broker with Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, was recently asked to “re-imagine” two properties in the Highlands to ignite buyer interest.
