Come enjoy 'Little Norway' and the Nordic charm of Viking House! Built in 1890, this house has been welcoming people to 'Paulsbo' for 125 years. Old but New! The house boasts an all new kitchen, sparkling new bathrooms, in fact, nearly new everything! Yet all with an eye for keeping the historical and Nordic charm of the original structure and its builders. Relaxing water views, comfortable surroundings, 4 bedrooms (one on main floor, 3 on second floor) with sleeping room for nine guests, a fully appointed kitchen for cooking and entertaining, dining seating for 14, rocking chairs on the porch as the sun sets behind the Olympic Mountains, and comfy terry robes all await you inside this charming space.

The Viking House is a restful place for those visiting Martha and Mary residents, or looking for a gentle place for family visiting. Viking House offers affordable accommodations for both a couple enjoying a weekend in our charming town, as well as larger families and groups, including quilters and book clubs looking for the perfect retreat locale.

This structure is not just another 'nice vacation home in a nice place' -- Viking House is a TRULY unique home in the Poulsbo community that has stood watch over 'little Norway' for over twelve decades of American history, growth and changing times. It is a proud and simple house, where you are quick to get comfortable and settle in for whatever adventure has brought you to the charming town of Poulsbo. From this special old house, guests can gaze out at what Poulsbo's original Scandinavian founders fondly saw as their 'home away from home.'

The Viking House is confirmed to be the second oldest of the very few, still standing original homes in 'Paulsbo,' as it was known at the time of it's construction. This unique home was solidly built in 1890 of old growth Northwest timber by the hands and hammers of hardworking Norwegian farmers who came West from Minnesota. The house sits up high and proud on a knoll at the North end of Front Street, like a sentinel welcoming all who enter the charming historic district of Poulsbo. Originally built long before electricity or indoor plumbing, and many years overdue for a remodel, the Viking House was completely updated and renewed from top to bottom in a year-long extensive renovation that was watched with excitement by the Poulsbo Historic Society and the entire Poulsbo community.

This unique historic home wants to be appreciated. Ask your host how Viking House can become your special destination in Poulsbo!
