Please note: Rates quoted using the instant quote option are intended for regular vacation rental use. Quoted rates allow a 4pm check in and 11 am checkout. Wedding and Event rates posted below are day rates allow for a 12pm check in and 12am check out. Lodging may be added on for an additional fee.

All guests, day time or overnight, must be pre registered with the office 48 hours prior to check in. Rates quoted apply to day time and overnight guests. No parties or events including more than contracted head count allowed. Event fees will be charged in addition to a $500 non compliance fee.

You may have noticed a significant price drop in our rates. In an effort to stay competitive, we have altered our rates for lower numbers of guests to reflect a growing need for smaller groups. We used to charge for 10 guests even if you only had 5. It made sense when all of our groups were 10 or more, but we are seeing an increased demand for 9 or fewer and didn't want to charge you for rooms you don't need.

Available to rent for gatherings, retreats, weddings, events, reunions, big and small!

What makes the Manor great is the ability to accommodate family and friends overnight so that your wedding day becomes a very special wedding weekend.

The Manor at South Bay offers a serene getaway to the country. Equestrian property provides peaceful surroundings of lilacs, green rolling pastures, walking trails, and wildlife, all just 6 minutes from I-5.

The house sits high on a hill and offers convenience and relative privacy. (A note about privacy can be found at the end of this description)

The Manor at South Bay is a 4 story, 4000 sf remodeled 1920's farm house located on 35 acres of pasture and trees, one mile from the Puget Sound waterfront and less than 10 minutes from historic downtown Olympia.

The remodel was done in 2005, and resulted in the addition of a large Master Suite, expanded kitchen, and other modern conveniences, however the Manor's roots is as a modest Farm House and accomodates families well, and is not too fancy for children.

Kitchen: For the culinary artists, you will love the large kitchen with double ovens, island, side by side sub zero fridge, two microwaves, 3 sinks and a modest selection of spices to use in preparing your own meals. We provide no food service.

Master: Large Master suite is almost completely windows on 3 sides, providing views of horses grazing in the pastures (seasonally), cherry trees, and Mt. Rainier. Master Bath includes two sinks and huge walk in double shower. Large HDTV plasma tv with DirecTV and DVD library also in Master. Pillowtop CA King Bed is as comfy as they come, and dressed in 800+ count egyptian cotton sheets, and you will never want to leave. Recently added a second King Size bed to this room.

Rooms: In addition to the Master, there is a very large bedroom with a twin bed with memory foam mattress, a full size bed with pillow top mattress, and a Queen size bed with pillowtop. The third bedroom has a full size Antique iron bed with a memory foam topper. All of the above mentioned rooms are on the second floor. On the first floor, there is a smaller bedroom with a bunk bed, twin over full and a twin size roll away. Adjacent to this room is the library, where there is a very comfy Full Size pull out sofa. There is ample room all over the house to set up airbeds. We can provide 11 for no extra charge.

Back Patio: The best year round feature of the patio is the huge commercial grade hot tub! Always hot and ready to relax and soothe our guests. A close second to the hot tub is a fully functional BBQ and kitchen area, complete with 2 sinks, burners, and HUGE Lynx barbecue. There is also a crystal clear 100' lap pool (available Summer only), all surrounded by gorgeous, massive river rock wall.

Living Room: Floor to (vaulted) ceiling stunning river rock fireplace, 60' flat screen t.v. with DVD library and DirecTV, 3 large leather couches to accommodate large groups, (10 fold out chairs also available) ,heated slate floor, open beamed ceilings and ample windows set the scene for the perfect Pacific NW retreat.

Library: Gorgeous original wood floors and white brick fireplace with elegant mantle, well lit sitting area overlooks manicured grounds and horse pastures. Two extremely comfortable overstuffed chairs, the library is well stocked with literary classics and a stereo with ample classical music CDs for complete relaxation.

For the Equestrian Traveler: For those with horse interest, we offer a lovely cross country jump field, outdoor arena, riding trails, and stadium jumps all on site. You may also schedule a riding lesson in advance of your arrival, however there is a 200lb weight limit. We have one horse who can carry 215 lbs., and we will only serve 4 riders at a time for safety reasons. We have horses for complete beginners as well as the seasoned competitor.

POLO PACKAGES! Your entire group can experience polo from the back of a polo pony from polo pro Ernie Darquea. See our site PoniesandPolo.Com to see different options, from a Wine and Women girls getaway to Polo Tours to the local polo club. Contact us for more info.

Additional Amenities: Grass Volleyball court, 1 acre landscaped by famous arborist, Walking trails where deer, hawks, and eagles are frequent, Amazing Air Conditioning, horses available for riding (200lb weight limit), ping pong, foosball, basketball, tetherball.

Meals: The kitchen at The Manor is a chef's dream. We provide a large selection of pots/pans, and various cooking equipment if you would like to prepare your own meals.

Privacy, Continued: The property is home to about 20 horses, mostly rescues, and a riding academy. It is not only a working horse farm, but also requires maintenance to keep it in tip top shape for renters. There is pool/spa maintenance daily around 11 am to maintain healthy chemical levels in each, once a week lawn mowing at a reasonable hour and not during any event you have planned, Portapotties that are present during the summer months are serviced each Wed. morning, and the dumpster will be dumped each Monday around 8am.
