Treat House Vacation Rental is a historic home once owned by Harry S. Treat. In 2007 an extensive remodel was undertaken to ensure guest comfort to included radiant heat flooring, and sound control. This vacation rental is located on the ground floor of our historic home and is very light and airy.

Please find information on Harry S. Treat and the ocean park just a 2 minute drive, or 15 minute walk below:

The park was named by and developed by Harry W. Treat in 1907 as an "attraction" at the end of the new electric car lines being built by realtors to induce townfolk to take a "Sunday outing" out of town and through the woods to a picnic or swim at a beach. (Along the way they were made aware of the real estate available!) The Carbine ended at Loyal Way (& 85th) with a steep twisting dusty path down into the park - or those owning a "tin lizzie" could drive down a dusty county road (approximately the present drive entering the upper park from the north) and down to a small parking area on the east side of the railroad tracks, then by foot across the tracks to the beach.

At that time the northern half of Meadow Point (named by the Coast Guard) was the site of a shipyard until 1913. To the south the beach curved in along the railroad seaway - all the way to Salmon Bay. The State owns the tidelands south of the park, with boat works and yards by the Bay.

Thank you and we look forward to meeting you.
