Great access, just five minutes off I-5 exit 111, and all shopping and services, yet feels like you're in the San Juans! Fifteen minutes to downtown Olympia, Farmer's Market, yacht harbor.
Amazing place; had a great time. Everything was exactly as we expected, and then some! It's a quiet and scenic place to unplug and relax, but also quite convenient to Lacey / Olympia. The hosts were equally great and went a lot way to make us feel welcome.
We had a spectacular weekend at Barbara and Dick's beach cottage! It was as quaint, cozy, and relaxing as we had hoped. The cottage was very clean and the information that the Yunkers left us was helpful. The yard was so well cared for and we were pleasantly surprised that we had an even better view than we had expected. When looking out the window toward the sound the water view is completely unobstructed. The state park was just a couple minutes walk away. There we could enjoy walking on the beach, trail running, or enjoying the view. Additionally, the proximity to downtown Olympia was just right for us. We were far enough away that we felt we were in a relaxing, remote environment...yet close enough that we could access it quickly! We had a wonderful weekend and would definitely recommend this home!
Barb and Dick's guest cabin was more than expected, actually. Cozy, super clean and tidy, everything in-its-place, and the surroundings are charming. In the cabin are many old and fascinating paperback books on Pacific NW history. The water-front (accessed by a semi-steep stairs) was alluring and I can see hanging out there in warmer months with a sketchbook, and using the kayaks. (It rained while we were there. And it was January. )
Every part of this experience was wonderful. Our hosts were awesome and the description of the cottage was accurate.
Awesome place! Views are magnificent! Hosts are wonderful!
Nice little cottage on the Sound! Very restful, though we gave those heaters a work-out in the below-freezing temperatures.
This is a wonderful getaway cottage for a couple. You can't beat the location, or the view, for anything! We didn't get to enjoy it as much as we would have liked due to freezing rain moving into the area, but we'd love to come back sometime. What minor issues we had, Barbara was quick to address.
Some things to know that aren't immediately apparent:
The entire cottage is about 300 sq ft. It is a tiny place. The bathroom (and shower) is narrow and only big enough for 1 person to turn around in - kind of like a boat's bathroom. There's the living room/kitchenette, the bedroom just big enough for the bed (the 12" TV is in the closet :) ), and the bathroom. There were 3 in my party, and without access to the outside (due to the weather), it was not nearly enough room for everyone to relax. And the foldout couch suffered from the usual discomfort that goes along with sleeping on a pullout mattress. I'd say that a topper would have probably helped, but there would have been nowhere to store it. :)
All in all, this is a lovely spot for either 3-4 people who don't plan on spending much time inside (and can bring a topper with them), or 1-2 people who like each other a lot.
Welcome to Puget View! We live in the log house that shares the property with the cottage and Brittany's Bayside Bungalow, also listed on this site. (We're Brittany's parents :) We love this special, beautiful place and look forward to sharing it with you. We've hosted many wonderful guests over the years, but are new to Airbnb.
Barb's happy when she's expressing her inner artist. Dick, an OSU forester, will help you identify any tree you have a question about. Together, our interests are outdoor-adventure oriented---whether it's bicycling across the country, summiting a NW peak, Kili, or Fuji. Over the last two years we've done a lot of walking/long distance hiking in Great Britain, Europe, Africa, Nepal, Asia. Recuperating now from 250 miles on the Pacific Crest Trail/John Muir Trail in High Sierras---and home to stay. Yay! We look forward to meeting you and providing a beautiful, inspiring place for you to enjoy.
