Tyee is a Chinook Jargon word for chief, boss, leader or anything superior of its kind. An example of its use is tyee sammon, which means King Salmon. Chinook Jargon was a shorthand language used between Native American tribes on the Northwest Coast and later by the Europeans who traded with them.
Tyee Cottage is found in the shorepines. It has a view of the ocean from the spacious living room, and the sunny master bedroom on the second floor has a window seat where you can curl up and watch the waves roll in.
