Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) is thrilled to share that Lavishly Restored Port Orchard Home, represented by Pamela Bellah, was featured on the front cover of the Kitsap Sun! It’s no surprise that the stunning property drew local attention, as Port Orchard Mayor Tim Matthes recently told Bellah that the home is unquestionably “one of the nicest of two, if not the nicest, homes in all of South Kitsap.”
In the article, Chris Henry describes owners Gil and Kathy Michael, who “poured their heart, soul and elbow grease into a lavish restoration and expansion of the home, turning it into a B&B that draws visitors from around the world.” Part of the appeal? “The Port Orchard landmark pays homage to local author Debbie Macomber and her best-selling Cedar Cove series.”

The couple enjoyed owning and operating the inn for years, as Kathy Michael told the Kitsap Sun, “we very much enjoyed doing it. Saving a historic site was very much rooted in both of us. It benefits the town and vice versa.” But after Gil’s death last year, Kathy is ready to move on to her next adventure and give another lucky owner the opportunity to own this wonderful historic property. The home certainly does stun, from modern amenities including radiant heated floors to quiet places of solitude perfect for curling up with a novel or watching the sunset.
