About Dave and Eileen Schmidt

Thank you for considering our cottage as your lodging choice. With only one cottage and both my husband and I the only ones operating it we will make your stay personal and special. Dave and I opened Olympic View in 2000. We never thought it would take off like it has. Don't get me wrong - it has been a lot of work but it has been fun for us meeting all our guests from all over the world. We have had engagements proposals at the cottage throughout the years and have had the couples come back for their anniversaries. There have been many birthday celebrations, military homecomings, , and so many other special occasions celebrated in the Cottage. It has been so fun to be able to share Olympic View Cottage with all our guests for all these memorable occasions. We really enjoy sharing our special paradise tucked away on this quiet hillside. My husband has lived here his whole life and we just can't get away. Beginning and ending each day with this breathtaking view and quiet location is truly a blessing that we will never take for granted. Many times I find myself looking at the view and catching myself saying out loud 'WOW- this is just so beautiful!” It is truly amazing. Everyday the view is ever-changing with the sunrise and sunsets, the cool Puget Sound breeze, the storms that roll by and the boat and ferry traffic all day long. It is just awesome. We hope we can share our little paradise with you as you read through what we have to offer. And if we don't have something in the cottage we will most likely have it in our house for you. So you don't have to go out and buy anything. You are the only guest in our cottage and we are here to make sure your vacation is perfect! We'd love to meet you this year and you’ll see why it is so hard for us to ever move away from this special hidden paradise. Our best to you always - Eileen and Dave.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I apologize for the delay, but could not let the opportunity pass to let you know about the wonderful experience I had while at your cottage. Last weekend my boyfriend and I booked a stay with you for our anniversary. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing the time we had there was. From the view, to the privacy, to the unique amenities of your kitchen and being able to add an intimate touch to our meals by cooking for ourselves and having private, relaxing dinners, lunches AND breakfasts. This, to me, surpassed any traditional bed and breakfast in quality and service in more ways than I have time to elaborate on. I wanted to say thank you from the both of us for not only providing outstanding, quality service…but for giving us an experience and a memory.

Best R&R Ever!

  • 5 of 5

I had a one day meeting in the Seattle area - chose not to stay at a hotel and am so glad I did! Added time to make a vacation after my meeting and stayed 5 nights. Dave and Eileen are great - there if you need them and very helpful. So close to the airport yet is quiet and feels remote. Was easy to get to Seattle as well as Tacoma. Fun to watch the sky and sunsets from inside and out. Can't say enough - everything you could need is there. I'd recommend it (and have to many already).

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review and recommending us to your friends. We love our location too. Close to Seattle - but far enough way to enjoy the beautiful Puget Sound waterways and the Olympic Mountain range. And after a busy day of exploring - coming back to the private hot tub is always a prefect way to end your day. We welcome you back for some R&R - anytime of the year.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I had never been to the Puget Sound area before, but I knew I did not want to stay in just another big hotel. I searched around and found this amazing little place. It was PERFECT for my needs for three nights. Totally private, comfortable, SO CLEAN, well appointed, and the owners are so respectful of privacy and so KIND! What wonderful people! It had everything I needed and more, to feel perfectly comfortable and at ease. I felt like it was my little home away from home. The owners are awesome at immediate communication as well. Everything was so easy! Plus, I swear this is the only king sized bed in a rental property like this, and that is so important!!! Thank you, Dave and Eileen for providing such a perfectly serene and comfortable cottage. I hope to go back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your sweet review. We are happy everything worked well for you and that you enjoyed our little cottage away from it all. It is a perfect place for that quiet romantic get away or honeymoon. Plus there is so much to do here in the Puget Sound all year so you will have to come back soon! Looking forward to your next visit. Eileen and Dave

Serenity and Privacy on Puget Sound

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that my husband and I are very picky about two things: privacy and comfortable bedding. Olympic View surpassed our expectations on both of these items. Dave and Eileen were laid back but very attentive to our needs. Our flight arrived late from the east coast and we became miserably lost trying to get to the cottage (our issue, not theirs--we are notorious for getting lost). Dave was amazingly patient and talked us all the way 'home', staying on the phone until we started up the drive.

The town of Burien is very convenient to Seattle. The beach is a short walk away from the cottage and the views are outstanding! This location also afforded us an opportunity to explore the mountains, Rainier, the ocean, and it was all within a convenient drive. We even did the Twin Peaks nostalgia tour, visiting Snoqualmie and North Bend. The cottage was just the right size for the two of us and was comfortably furnished.

Without question, we would highly recommend this cottage for comfort and convenience. Thank you Dave and Eileen, for a memorable stay on our first explorations into the Pacific Northwest! We will be back.

Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Eileen are amazing! It was wonderful to have fresh Danish, eggs, and all the necessary things to make for breakfast before we started our day. The view from the cottage is beautiful with amazing sunsets over Puget Sound every night. I don't like the noise of the city so the cottage was perfect about 20-30 minutes from Seattle, so close enough to do all our exploring yet peaceful and quiet when the day was through. The suggestions that Dave offered to us were worth going to so pay attention he knows his stuff. We used the grill on the deck and sat outside and watched the sunset over dinner just amazing. The hot tub was a wonderful end to our days. What an amazing little piece of heaven they have and how amazing that they enjoy renting it out. If your going to Seattle this is the place to stay you can not go wrong. I truly would like to thank Dave & Eileen for their hospitality and it was nice to have my visits every morning and evening from their cat Corkscrew!!!! Thank you for making our vacation memorable.

Gem of the Northwest

  • 5 of 5

When we decided to vacation in Seattle we looked on many web sites for a place to stay. The one that stood out to us over all the others was Olympic View Bed and Breakfast Cottage. So we booked our reservation with them. As with any place you book without actually seeing it, I became apprehensive the closer we got (we have ended up in some dives due to not so truthful pictures). However, when we arrived at Olympic View all my apprehension melted away. It exceeded our expectations by far. The minute we walked in the door we loved it….all of it. From the way it is set up, the decorations, the colors, where the cottage is situated, the gorgeous view, the deck, everything. They even provide a laundry area to catch up on your washing. The refrigerator and pantry are stocked with everything one could want and more. The supplies were very generous. Each morning we looked forward to see what new pastries would be waiting for us (as kids in a candy shop). The cottage was so comfortable and cozy and modern. We loved how you could swivel the TV and watch it from the living area or in the bedroom. We loved Dave and Eileen and even had them over for dinner one night. We also met Sarah, their daughter who was very welcoming and friendly. This little gem is so peaceful, quiet, and private and has such beautiful views of Puget Sound and sunsets. Watching the sun go down over the water in the Jacuzzi was amazing. It’s just a hop, skip and a jump into Seattle, the beach and local shopping, restaurants, etc. Olympic View is like no other B&B and the best and most enjoyable we have ever experienced. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the Seattle area and want a truly comfortable, peaceful and very enjoyable experience. We will certainly stay here again when we are in the Seattle area.

Best Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary during the first week of July for our first visit to Seattle and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Olympic View B&B definitely exceeded our expectations regarding view, location and comfort. While not your typical communal B&B, Olympic View offers all of the comforts of home. This is a very peaceful location even though it is only fifteen minutes from the airport. The photos do not do justice to the expansive view of the Puget Sound with Olympic mountains in the background. In the evenings after grilling fresh fish from Pike Market Place, we would sit on the deck and watch the sun glisten off the Sound before disappearing behind the mountains. Since we stayed over the July 4th holiday, we were awed by the fireworks shows around the water. This is definitely "the" place to stay in Seattle.
