The Coyle Community, a secluded neighborhood of about 200, is located on the southern tip of the Toandos Peninsula. In 1969, a small development of vacation properties was established as the Coyle-Churchill Estates. The community is located on the shore of the protected inner harbor of one of Hood Canal’s most pristine mini fjords, called Fisherman’s Harbor.
In order to enjoy the natural beauty of the harbor, and access the abundant recreational opportunities of the Hood Canal, the community built a private boat launch and dock of 64 slips on the tidelands leased from the Department of Natural Resources. They are the only launching and mooring facility within 20 miles and serve boats up to 26 feet in length.
It is the purpose of the Coyle Community Club to maintain and protect this valuable resource for its members. Although ownership of a lot or rental of a residence inside the Coyle-Churchill Estates is a prerequisite for membership, many members live outside the community, using their lot as a summer getaway or as a valuable asset to property they own in the surrounding area. The Club largely relies on volunter labor from members to maintain the launch area and dock.
The Club also serves as a catalyst to bring property owners together to maintain roads and drainage in the community and to celebrate the enchanting area.
In the pages of the Club’s website, www.coylecommunityclub.wordpress.com, you’ll find information about membership, dock rules, by-laws, minutes from past meetings. . . as well as fishing and tide information and fun blogs about our unique little harbor home.
The Coyle Community Club Executive Board meets at 10:00 AM the second Saturday of every month. General membership meetings are in the Spring (generally the second Sunday in April) and Fall (generally the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend). All meetings are in the Coyle Community Center, 923 Hazel Point Road, and members are encouraged to attend.
We invite you to learn about our area, our neighbors and the goings on of the Community Club. We hope the Club website will serve as a repository of information to current and future members as well as a way to share fun information about our community.
