Very private cozy cottage nestled close to downtown Olympia.

The space

The Cottage is nestled in Olympia’s Eastside neighborhood, a short walk from downtown. The Bungalow shares a small urban site with another small guest house. Both use space efficient and eco-friendly design principles. The Cottage features local wood products and local craftsmanship to enhance the warmth and sense of place. Parking is on the street and access to the cottage includes a cascade of 11 steps through lush in native vegetation. Two birch trees mark your entrance.

The landscape is filled with native plants, fruits, berries and herbs. Although this little home away from home is only 500 square feet, the design heightens the sense of warmth in this cozy, comfortable space.

The Cottage comfortably accommodates 2 guests with:
One bedroom - with a queen bed
One bathroom with a unique slate and pebble shower
Dining area with a well equipped kitchen with an electric range
Earth-friendly cleaning practices
CD player with a collection of CDs
Collection of books, games and puzzles
Towels, soap, hair dryer, iron and ironing board
Covered patio with outdoor seating in small fenced yard
Fully furnished with your comfort and convenience in mind

Guest access

Guests have access to entire house, private side yard and patio.

Interaction with guests

I usually don't interact much with guests as I live offsite and up the street. I do come around to water and prepare other guest house for guests. I try to communicate when I will be around. I am very reachable by phone. The neighbors keep a good eye on what's going on. If there are any parties or inappropriate behavior I will and have called police and shut down shenanigans.

This was a really great location for us near the Capital and lots of places to eat. The cottage was clean and quiet. Street parking was convent and easy. Kitchen was stocked with plenty of spices and all you would need other than food. If I need to stay in Olympia again, I will do definitely try to stay here.

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet and peaceful overnight stay. We wished we could have stayed longer. This cottage, though close to downtown, feels very private and secluded. The interior and decor of the place is really nice. The fresh flowers in a vase were a nice touch. Thanks, Ellen!

Sweet very comfortable place to retreat to after my work commitment. Thoroughly enjoyed the lovely outdoor place as it was hot summer weather.
