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 here, anniversary and birthday celebrations, military homecomings, and so many special occasions it has been so fun to be able to share Olympic View Cottage with all our guests. 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.

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.

Honeymoon Hideout

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 2 nights while waiting for our cruise to Alaska. I will tell you we are NOT disappointed. Dave and Eileen were the best hostesses I have ever experienced. Dave greeted us on our day of arrival even though we arrived MUCH later than anticipated due to delayed air travel. Each day Dave and/or Eileen would greet us, ask us about our days adventure and give recommendations (upon request) of places to eat or see. They were always there but never intrusive.

Two things drew us to Olympic View 1) breakfast fixings available but you did the fixing and 2) you weren't technically in someone's home. You are in a studio like apartment over a garage. So you have privacy! We also enjoyed having a hot tub and a grill at our disposal.

Our little hideout was always clean upon returning from our day's adventure and our fridge was always restocked. I thoroughly enjoyed having choices each day of what to cook. We never had the same thing twice. Also enjoyed the fresh fruit and a selection of cokes, juices and milk.

A Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This B&B is the best I've ever visited. Everything was perfect. The bed was very comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious, the hot tub was relaxing, and the entire experience was very private. My wife and I were visiting Seattle for our 10th anniversary and found this amazing place on the internet. We decided to stay based on the reviews and we're glad we did. Dave and Eileen were great hosts and the overall experience couldn't have been better. For the same price or less than the hotels in the city, you can stay here with more personal service and your own hot tub. Why would you stay anywhere else?
