About this listing
Large, high-ceiling room in a 1920's Olympia WA home on 2 acres. Guest room has private use of the downstairs bathroom with shower. New queen sized bed.
Enjoy the bounty from our garden and chickens. You will have access to hot tub and living areas along with field and outdoor areas to explore. Our home is only 3 miles from hipster downtown Olympia and puget sound, but in a semi-rural area. Area attractions include a neighboring U-pick blueberry farm in season. There is a small neighborhood park within walking distance and several nearby larger city parks with nice hiking trails. A local bus line is available a half mile from our home.
Oly is located within 2 hours of Rainier and Olympic National Parks and the Pacific coast.Hosts Paul and Sara are engaged in the local Olympia community and can help direct you to activities, arts, and outdoor opportunities. We love to cook and make our own wine and ale among other items.
We have med/small Dog and a Cat, although they do not have regular access to the guest room.
Also, the dog although harmless does tend to greet newcomers wtih some wary barking so this may be a factor if you are not an animal lover.

After a long drive we were happy to hop into a comfy bed.
We enjoyed the mattress and an organic bowl of cereal in the morning. I enjoyed spending time the next morning strolling
the gardens and clucking with the chickens.
Thanks for the stay Paul. We would not hesitate to stay with you agin if we visit in Olympia.

Paul and Sara were great! I felt very welcomed, comfortable, and their artful house was inspiring. They had a 4th of july party where I got to meet so many wonderful people. Paul and Sara are both laid back, which is a nice feeling when you are a house guest.
This is a wonderfully charming spot to stay in Olympia. Paul and Sara have a beautifully decorated, quiet house with a comfortable bed and a private guest entrance. It's convenient to a bus stop and optimal for rural bike tours. A very relaxing stay, combining the best of the city and the countryside.
We got in later than expected, but Paul and Sara were very accommodating. We loved having breakfast in the garden by the campfire! We were invited to a graduation party they hosted, and sincerely enjoyed meeting their friends. It's always fun to see the artwork all around!
The photos don't do it justice! The house itself is an artwork made of artworks, somehow both stimulating and relaxing at the same time. Paul and Sara were very friendly, and were able to recommend us some good restaurants in downtown Olympia. The neighborhood was full of trees, and blissfully quiet. Highly recommended!
Paul's place was awesome! We were looking for a place to stay before our day at Olympic Park and this was wonderful. Our hosts were very friendly and made us feel like we were home. If you like neutral/clean looking accommodations this is not a place for you, there is a little art treasure at every corner of this house making it very special and definitely a true Airbnb experience.
