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!
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.

Marilyn and Clark were great! Getting in was easy. They made us feel most welcome. And Grandma's Garden Cottage was very comfortable. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet, safe, comfortable place in the heart of west Olympia.
My stay was made enjoyable because Marilyn was a very friendly and helpful host. She even shared er sweet and delicious plums and Chinese apple from her garden.
The facilities was good with a full kitchen and washer/dryer.
If you are in Olympia, you should stay in Marilyn's home.
It is very enjoyable and fuss-free.
Our stay at Marilyn & Clark's was so lovely! My sister and I spent the first 2 nights of our first trip to Washington in their pretty, spacious cottage. We enjoyed everything, from the Italian plum trees in the backyard to the warmth of the living room fireplace.
Marilyn and Clark were so accommodating ... we arrived 3 hours sooner than expected and asked if we could check-in early. They were able to welcome us with warm smiles and make us feel at home right away. We also got great food, transit & farmer's market shopping tips from them (always a bonus when visiting a new city).
I recommend a visit to Olympia, if only to meet Marilyn & Clark and bask in the glow of their Pacific NW warmth!
This was our first experience using Airbnb. We were very pleased with Grandmas Cottage. It was even better than it looked in the pictures. The bed was wonderful. We haven't slept so well in a long time. Marilyn and Clark were very gracious and were so helpful with any of our questions. They made us feel like we were all special friends. The location is fantastic. We were able to walk to just about everything we needed. Puget Sound is very close and it is easy to get on the main freeway to Seattle. We will definitely plan on staying at the "cottage" again!!.
Great place, great location. Marilyn is so lovely! The fireplace was the highlight of my month! :)
This is a sweet little cottage- very convenient. One thing to know is the bed is a waterbed.
Loved the little cottage. Marilyn and family were very friendly and unobtrusive. Quaint decor and lit nicely by windows all around. The garden is lush and very inviting.
Look forward to my next stay.
