Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This private, cozy cottage is perched on a hillside offering mountain and pastoral views to the west, with a private, custom waterfall bath and queen bed. There are 5 acres of mountain and sea views, extensive Japanese gardens, ponds, fir and cedar groves. This is a peaceful place for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and furry friends (pets). National Forest and Park trails are ten minutes away.

The space
The cottage is set on a hillside with beautiful westward views of the Olympic mountains. The setting is private and quiet, with guest access to the extensive gardens, ponds and water features. The cottage is about 250 square feet including the private bath. One entire wall of the cottage is glass with private views and a deck that wraps around. Inside there are warm wood floors and a custom bath that features a waterfall shower with stone from the local river. The cottage has cedar shingles and a metal roof, and is well insulated for heating and cooling. I have recently added a new kitchen (JAN 2019 with a two electric burner stove top, deep sink, waist-high fridge with freezer and microwave for my guests convenience and added independence. While individual guests and couples have found the cottage to have more than sufficient space, if you are considering bringing your dog, you may want to review again for space considerations. I've hosted a number of dogs large and small but I did have one guest who found this an issue with her large pet dog.

I have retired from park ranger, Navy captain, corporate, non-profit and political life. I am a lover of sailing, nature and music. I have moved to the Pacific Northwest to be close to all of these things - and I am. The quiet beauty here is unsurpassed. I am grateful to be here.

During your stay

I am available to answer questions about the area and will make guests breakfast for one morning during their stay if they desire. Guests are welcome to wander the grounds on their own, and I am happy to orient them to the property - beautiful walks begin at the end of the driveway. I recently added a trail that wanders along the 5 acres with views of water and mountains.
