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 an uphill stroll on a reclaimed driveway, lush in native vegetation. Two birch trees mark your entrance.
The landscape is filled with native plants, fruits, berries and herbs. And of course, bamboo. 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 Bungalow 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
We had a great stay at Ellen's cottage. We never met her in person, but she had arranged easy access to the cottage and we found it to be perfect for our needs. In fact, it was fully furnished with anything that one might need for a comfortable stay with a fully functional kitchen to boot. One of my favorite features was the little private yard off the cottage's patio, which we utilized multiple times. The location is also quite good, close to the Downtown area (about 10-15 minute walk) yet far enough from the noise and hustle-and-bustle typical for downtown areas.
I loved the Cottage! It was so cozy, close to good food and shops. Ellen was very easy to communicate with and I will definitely stay here again! Thanks Ellen!
The place and location were even better than I anticipated. Very easy to find. Bigger than it looked to me in the photos. Clean & comfortable with an awesome yard. I didn't want to leave and look forward to staying again when I can when visiting Olympia in the future.
Ellen's cottage is a really great place with very tasteful and comfortable rustic character. I will definitely try to stay again on my next trip to Oly. she has thought of everything as a host and was very understanding when I accidentally broke something. Highly recommended!
Everything was just as it had been described: A very cute cottage, key in place, and a prompt text response when I let the host know that I had arrived. The garden was beautiful and I enjoyed it even in the rain because a substantial portion was covered, and I could sit outside. The cottage itself was very clean, and had everything one might need in the kitchen, and a very comfy bed. Most of all I appreciated the quiet. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Loved the character and vibe of this little cottage and would definitely stay again.

The cottage is just as it is described.... it is lovely...cozy....in a quiet an magical setting. We were only there in the evenings, but we slept well. I would certainly return and there is nothing I would change.
