Their Pub & Eatery is a neighborhood place to meet old and new friends and neighbors. The country setting is ideal for casual dining and enjoying your favorite spirits or just a nice cold beer. They also offer breakfast on weekends.
At the northern tip of Thurston County lies Johnson Point, a picturesque community surrounded by pristine farmland and forest—nestled between Henderson Inlet and Nisqually Reach.
Olympia and Lacey are easily within reach down Johnson Point Road, forking off into either Hawks Prairie Road or South Bay Road.
Johnson Point is the perfect location for families to settle down, with several waterfront homes on the market. South Bay Elementary School, the Lacey Learning Center, and Providence St. Peter Hospital are located nearby.
On the eastern edge of Johnson Point lies 154 acres of natural wonders at Tolmie State Park where you can hike the Four Cedars Trail amongst Thurston County’s temperate forests or enjoy the calm waters of the saltwater shoreline. Adventurous scuba divers can explore an artificial reef, as part of the Tolmie Underwater Park just off the coast.
Above the surface, explore the Nisqually Reach by boat using Zittel’s or Puget Marina as your launching point. Either rent a vessel for the day or store your own at one of their boathouses.
For a local bite, skip on down to South Bay Pub and Eatery. We personally recommend heading there for a Taco Tuesday escape, but don’t forget to bring the green stuff as they are a cash-only bar. With breakfast served on the weekends, this cozy brewpub is perfect for casual dining among friends and neighbors.
Get in touch with your ‘country’ side at Lost Peacock Creamery, where you can indulge in a serving of goat cheese and relax during a session of… goat yoga!
Learn how to ride on horseback at the Forest Park Equestrian Center, which also offers full care boarding as well.
At the very tip of Johnson Point sits the historic Poncin Estate, a 13,000 square foot mansion built by Seattle commercial pioneer Gamma Poncin in 1906. A series of structures make up the mansion, including an art gallery, boathouse, guest houses, and several greenhouses.
At Johnson Point, find a connection to nature in this peaceful, rural community.
