Boston Harbor Community Highlight

Welcome to Boston Harbor in beautiful Olympia, Washington!

Nestled on the shores of the Puget Sound’s Budd Inlet lies a secluded, close-knit community far from the hustle and bustle of Olympia. Where waterfront living meets small-town life, and views of both the Olympic Range and Mt. Rainier greet you on bluebird days.

Boston Harbor has long been a distinctive exurb of Thurston County, boasting many new and renovated homes with contemporary architecture and an environmentally conscientious community situated amongst plush Pacific Northwest landscape.

Boston Harbor Marina Store

Within Boston Harbor proper, lot sizes are modest with homes typically ranging from 1,000 square feet to 2,000 square feet. Throughout the greater Boston Harbor community lot sizes can trend upwards of an acre, and most homes are between 2,000 and 3,000 square feet.

Typical of many Pacific Northwest neighborhoods, Boston Harbor is not far from numerous recreational opportunities. Priest Point Park, the point at which East Bay Drive turns into Boston Harbor Rd, boasts over 4 miles of hiking trails, 2 miles of saltwater shoreline, and numerous small and large picnic shelters. Woodard Bay Natural Resources Conservation Area lies on the eastern side of the Boston Harbor peninsula and is home to 870 acres of wildlife preservation area. The Western Chehalis Trailhead is right nearby and is a great place to park your car.

Live comfortably among the farms, artists, and craftspeople that make this area their home. Boston Harbor is a close quiet community where life is just a little bit easier.
