The space

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!

SUCH a gracious and nice couple! The place is spacious and clean! Close to grocery stores and they even offered to let us use their washer dryer since we had been camping on the road for a few weeks! It was the perfect place for us to rest up for more camping !

"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 cond…
