The Space

This is a private room in a family home located on five wooded acres. Located just outside of Olympia, this is an ideal location at the gateway to the Olympic Peninsula and the Washington Coast. A great place to stay if you are visiting The Evergreen State College, or a quiet retreat for those visiting Olympia.

The room is furnished with treasured antique furniture I recently restored. The iron bed has a feather bed and lofty comforter to make for a cozy rest. Wi-fi and a large private bath will make your visit even more comfortable.

Our driveway is a bit steep, but don't worry, we will send you some navigation tips in the House Rules after you make a reservation.

I have lived in the area for a number of years and can recommend parks, hikes, restaurants and other local areas of interest.

There will be a light breakfast ready for you with fresh fruit, whole grain bread, and trimmings.

  • Marianne was very nice and welcoming. I arrived there late on the 4th of July and spent a night at her place. The bedroom was nice and spacious, it is exactly like in the photos, the bed was super comfortable and the dedicated bathroom was nice.
    Since I was leaving early next morning, she was thoughtful enough to leave me breakfast on the kitchen counter which consisted of some much needed coffee, bread, butter and fruit.The GPS is not very helpful with the location of her house, but Marianne sent me instructions in a separate email which was helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to someone who wants to go spend some time where it is quiet and relaxing.

  • Marianne was very kind and welcoming.
    The room was exactly as in the photo.
    The bathroom was clean and spacious, in the hallway next to the bedroom.
    I had the run of the entire main floor of the house to include: living room, kitchen, dining room, and a lovely deck which faces a lawn bordered by forest. It was very quiet and peaceful. I counted at least five baby bunnies playing in the yard when the dogs were inside.
    Breakfast supplies consisted of bread, peanut butter, jelly, fresh blueberries, and butter. Coffee washed my PB&J sandwich down. Day 2 I also found a banana.
    I slept well in the bed.
    I would suggest:
    - bring slippers, hardwood floors.
    - bring a sleep mask as there are no blinds on the window, if you want to sleep past sunrise.
    - ensure the floor-cleaning gobot is deactivated or you will listen to it cleaning the floors from 3-4:30am.

  • I enjoyed a restful night in this lovely home surrounded by natural beauty. Marianne was a gracious hostess...,and her 2 dogs were most welcoming!
    Based on a recommendation by Marianne, I had dinner at the local tavern...,a lot of cold beer on tap, and tasty fried halibut! I would have no hesitation in returning to this home/location.

  • We had a pleasant stay despite the rain. It is indeed a hilltop home set amidst the forest. Quiet and peaceful. The room was very nice and cozy, bathroom above average. It was especially comfortable sitting in her living room, windows everywhere.

    Great value and highly recommend.

  • I felt right at home at Marianne's quiet hilltop retreat. It was clean and very comfortable. Lovely, peaceful location. Marianne's dogs are sweet and very well-behaved. I am hoping to stay again when I next visit Olympia.
