Quiet, quaint house nestled in a lovely garden backed by a neighborhood park. Fully equipped kitchen allows you to have your favorite coffee or tea each morning and cook as much as you'd like. Cozy fireplace and lovely decorations afford relaxation during your stay.
Grandma's Garden cottage is located within walking distance of a variety of restaurants, downtown Olympia's harbor, and the Westfield shopping mall. Both the Capital and the Evergreen State College are less than 10 minutes away by car and easily accessible by bus.
A few specifics about the cottage that may be important for your decision-making.The cottage is attached to our home and shares a laundry room between the houses. It also shares a backyard space. We have a gas grill and lawn chairs available for guests who like outdoor dining. There is one "real bed" and a pull-out sofa bed. The "real bed" is a pillowtop softside waterbed with tubes. It is fully adjustable according to one's preference for soft or firm mattresses. (We can show long term renters how to adjust the mattress for their optimal comfort.)
The best weather in the Northwest is between mid-August and mid-October. Come explore our region. We are just an hour and a half from the Pacific Ocean, Mount Rainier, and the Olympic National Forest. We look forward to your visit!
The hosts were really nice and accommodating. We loved the cottage. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The cottage was close to restaurants, Starbucks and even a nice mall. We even had a deer in our yard one morning!! Would stay there again for sure. Thank you to Marilyn and her husband. We loved Olympia.
"Grandma's Garden Cottage" was the best AirBnb I have had the pleasure of staying in. A very quite area of Olympia but within very close driving distance of all of the amenities of Olympia. The "Cottage" was very clean and well decorated. It had a heater as well as an air conditioner but didn't have to use either as the weather was perfect. If you have a rental car you will take comfort in knowing you will have your own driveway that leads right up to the front door. Hopefully the "Cottage" will be available next time I am up in Olympia. Many thanks to the hosts for a very comfortable and worry free stay.
Our experience was a cozy and quiet visit together, old friends that we were.. THe space was clean and well designed and located just a step away outside from a beautiful collection of flowers that had been groomed by their grandmother... and still beautiful. We played and sang together using the guitar that they had left there, then we watched their tv for awhile. All very comfortable . It was located quite a ways out of town (Olympia), so being without a car made it difficult to get to... we used the fine transit system there. Returning, the owner cordially gave us a ride in his truck back to town. For dinner we walked 2 blocks to a take out Asian diner an then spent some leisurely minutes in the nice park next door. A very heart warming time and we would recommend it to others as a welcoming place to stay in Olympia, WA!
This was a great and quiet place to stay. Having access to the yard was fantastic and the entrance and cottage was very private. Good location for easy access to everything you would need in Olympia as well as helpful guidebooks on the coffee table to help new comers navigate!
Marilyn was great and the cottage was perfect. Thank you!
Marilyn was really great in accommodating us! We came in late on a flight from the east coast. The location was convenient for our visit to evergreen state and to downtown Olympia.
Marilyn and Clark Gilman were wonderful hosts. The apartment was what was expected as described.
My time at Grandma's Cottage was very pleasant. The comfortable, country style makes it easy to feel at home. Such proximity to the grocery store, restaurants and downtown made for a relaxing trip visiting friends in the area. Marylin is a kind host and happy to answer any questions you might have along the way. I'd recommend this location to anyone, newcomer or returner to the Olympia area alike!
We had a lovely stay with Marilyn. She and her husband were very flexible and accommodating with our check-in/out times, which we very much appreciated! The cottage is lovely, clean and homey; this would be a great spot to stay for a few days, though we were only there one night. We had a great sleep- it's so quiet and peaceful, and it was so nice to wake up with a beautiful garden outside our window.
