Our homey apartment has all the modern amenities right next to a peaceful wooded ravine. From our memory foam full-size mattress to a full bathroom and kitchen, we are your base for exploring Olympia, south Puget Sound, and Mount Rainier. Or relax and meditate in our friendly cohousing community.
My space combines the best features of a modern, well-designed home with a monastic forest retreat and a welcoming, lively neighborhood. We have a community garden and a yard where children, families, and people of many different ages enjoy each other's company.

I'm around on weekday nights and some weekends. I am happy to interact with guests as much or as little as desired. I love cooking and eating together. I also am up for weekend activities with guests. However, I'm an introvert and often retreat to my own bedroom for privacy.
We are in a safe, small-town neighborhood with little car traffic. It is quiet and easily bikable. There is a nearby organic food co-op with an excellent selection within walking distance. A good coffeeshop is within biking distance.
There are bus stops on major lines (the 41 and the 45) within a 10 minute walk, I have a bike+lock+helmet I can loan you.
Clean sheets, towels, and even extra toiletries provided.
Great place with a wonderful host! Very friendly and welcoming. Eating meals and having intriguing conversations were a blast. Would go back anytime!
Paul is a gracious, hospitable host. His place is a light-filled, peaceful space surrounded by a beautiful forest.
He invited me to help myself to whatever was in his kitchen, and I was able to store my food in his fridge and freezer with no problem.
The no-frills guest room was very clean; the mattress, blankets and pillows were cozy and comfortable. Guests have their own private half-bath, which was a nice bonus. Quiet surroundings guarantee a peaceful night's sleep, and wireless access was painless and perfect.
I enjoyed staying at the Modern Forest Retreat and would recommend it to budget-minded travelers.
Spartan, but very clean. Perfect for what I needed: A simple, nice, yet inexpensive "home-base" to stay while visiting Olympia for a weekend. Paul was easy to get a hold of and very helpful and friendly. The property is a part of shared co-housing community with lovely grounds, and a great vibe. I would stay again.
