About This Listing
Set in a private wooded location with a covered deck and beautiful view of the forest and the Black Hills. This apartment has one bedroom, one bathroom and a full kitchen. There is also a small extra room with a daybed and a living room.
A lovely and comfortable place to relax, this getaway is also very close to the Evergreen State College and to Mud Bay Road. Highway 101 is a mile away, making trips to downtown a breeze. There is a nice paved trail through the woods within walking distance as well.
The Evergreen Getaway is unique because it feels very secluded and tranquil, yet it is not far to grocery stores, shopping, resaurants and more.
Our home is also located on the property and we are happy to answer any questions or help with ideas of places to go in the area. That said, we give our guests full privacy unless further information is requested.
We are a non smoking property and we ask that you be courteous to the neighbors by having quiet hours between 10pm-8am.
Carissa & Gaelen have put a lot of thought and care into hosting their guests.
We arrived late into Olympia on a Sunday night. Carissa was very helpful in locating a restaurant before we drove out to their home.
The "Quiet Evergreen Getaway Apt." is at the end of a drive with evergreens surrounding it. We had to leave early in the morning but would have loved a cup of coffee on the back porch watching the wildlife.
The apartment is attached to Carissa & Gaelen's home via a breezeway, yet completely separate. There are 4 rooms; living, kitchen/dining, bedroom (queen) and an extra room that has a twin futon. The bathroom is accessible to both the bedroom and the extra room.
Everything was clean and tidy. There were bananas, some basic breakfast items and a delicious chocolate bar in the kitchen.
In the living room was a book full of suggestions for the surrounding area and some menus.
If we are back in the area, I would definitely stay here again!
We loved staying at the Evergreen Getaway - we felt welcomed and at home. The hosts were very friendly, welcoming, and readily available by text with questions and we were surprised to find treats waiting for us when we arrived!
The location was perfect and secluded, and the apartment was very manageable with a toddler (lots of space to run, and no dangerous things to get into), not to mention very stylish and chic in decor.
We definitely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting the area - we know we would love to re-visit!
This was my third stay at the Quiet Evergreen Getaway. It is so comfortable, and really feels like home-away-from-home now.
I made Thanksgiving dinner for my daughter, a freshman at Evergreen College, and some of her friends. Carissa was so kind to loan me extra pans so I could cook the meal more easily. The kitchen is large and comfortable. We had a wonderful time.
I love the walking trail that is so close to the little house. The garden is delightful but the walking trail is a great way to take a gentle stroll in the beautiful Olympia woods.
I hope to come back again, when the second semester is completed.
This was my boyfriend and I's first airbnb experience and we were definitely not disappointed. Believe me when I say that pictures absolutely do not do this place justice. Superbly clean, beautifully and well thought out interior design, and backyard views that are to die for. We unfortunately we're not able to meet our gracious hosts but this property and our experience there far exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed the wonderful chocolate, fresh coffee beans and comfy bed!
I absolutely love this little house. It is so welcoming and friendly. My child is attending Evergreen State College nearby, and this was the second time I have stayed here.
The bed is deliciously comfortable and the kitchen is spacious & well-equipped. The wi-fi behaved perfectly and I was able to get work done while my child was in class.
I am returning for a third visit next month. We will cook Thanksgiving dinner for our family in this comfortable and private little house. Looking forward to coming back!
Great apartment! We were pleasantly surprised that it was much bigger than the pictures show. The yard was lovely as well as the deck. Fresh flowers and a good selection of tea made it a great stay. It was also very clean!
Our experience at the Evergreen Getaway was wonderful! My son and I were there for the weekend to move him in to Evergreen State College and wanted a quiet place that would be more comfortable and private than a hotel. Evergreen Getaway was perfect. The apartment is clean, well-stocked and quite large (big, fully equipped kitchen/dining area, living room, nook with futon, and separate bedroom). My 6' tall son slept well on the futon in the nook; similar to a long single bed. The place and experience exceeded my expectations.
Cyndi and Gaelen were responsive, sweet and helpful. They gave us great restaurant suggestions before we arrived. We had a bit of trouble finding the place in the dark (after having dinner at one of their suggested restaurants on the way there from the airport), but they guided us in and welcomed us warmly. After that, we did not see or hear them at all. Moreover, the setting is absolutely gorgeous! The garden and sitting areas are beautiful, peaceful and calming. I will definitely be back.
About the Host, Carissa & Gaelen
We live in Olympia on the same property as the Evergreen Getaway Apartment. We love this quiet property very much. We work from home a lot of the time so we are accessible if there is anything that you need during your stay, but we will give you plenty of space and privacy as well.
