I stayed for a month beginning in mid February in this lovely retreat and could not have enjoyed it more. The Holcomb Hideaway cottage is a beautifully decorated efficiency style apartment with lots of windows, a sitting and dining area, and a darling sitting porch with views of the lagoon, Port Townsend and the bay beyond. Owner Carol was exceptionally nice to deal with and went out of her way to make me comfortable. The large queen sized bed had a great mattress and linens, the bathroom was spotless and the kitchenette had a microwave, toaster oven, fridge, toaster, coffeemaker and hotplate with pans -which I used to cook everything from salmon to pasta to eggs to stir fry veggies. There's also a gas grill right outside the backdoor, and laundry facilities are right downstairs in the lower level utility area. The hot tub was being repaired so I did not use it but it looks to be large and enclosed within a gazebo type affair. The back and front yards are great and include decks, several sets of tables and chairs, a hammock, and paths through the beautiful landscaping that has obviously been tended by a dedicated gardener. Just before I left, I saw hummingbirds flitting about! Also on the property is a small house which is also rented out. I had great "neighbors" during my stay and visited this darling home several times. Port Townsend itself is very welcoming with numerous cultural and recreational events, two movie theaters and lots of great shops and restaurants. I even got temporary memberships at the Food Coop (about .5-.75 miles from the cottage), and was granted a temporary library card. What a great place to visit and relax in! Thanks so much Carol!
