Port Angeles Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage; Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

Nestled in a meadow overlooking its own private pond with a view of the Olympic Mountains, this small cottage has all the peace and tranquility you could want. You can lounge on the porch in your pajamas all day if you like, enjoying the pond and the Bald Eagles nesting in the nearby trees or enjoy easy access to surrounding trails and peaceful roads that lead into the Olympic National Park.

This newly built hideaway is ideal for 2 people but can sleep 5. The main pond-view room has a single window-seat bed, and a sofa that converts to an excellent queen air-bed. You can cook with ease in the full kitchen, complete with everything, including spices and basic amenities. Up the ladder is a roomy loft with a memory-foam queen bed and a single mattress. You will find fine linens, towels, along with plenty of wood should you want to use the wood stove.

The Olympic Peninsula has more diversity than anywhere else in America. You can find almost anything your heart's desire. Ten minutes away are Sequim, Port Angeles, the world's longest sand spit, the ferry to Victoria, B.C., Canada and the Olympic National Park. Within 20 minutes you can venture into the moss covered rain forest, enjoy a stunning glacier carved lake, hike hundreds of miles of wilderness with crystal clear rivers, be awed by sandy rugged beaches and soak in natural hot springs.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We saw the Pond Cottage just as it was finished and we are definitely coming back to stay. These owners have built another quintessential Northwest home. We have stayed in their other homes and they pay such attention to detail.

We take pride in our lovely homes. We have three homes on our 25 acres that we have carefully built and kept private from each other, while taking advantage of the gorgeous nature all around. The Olympic Peninsula is such a joy to experience and we love to help people have the best experience possible. The Pond Cottage is our latest addition and although it is our smallest home, it has every charming amenity; tasteful rustic design, fine comfortable beds and a full quality kitchen. We have had delight in learning that everyone who stays there loves the Pond Cottage and we have had many happy guests.

Suzann Pilot purchased this cottage in 2010

There will be no question why we bought this property when you see our place--it's spectacular. The Olympic Mountains , our ponds with beautiful natural meadows all around and yet really easy access to the two major towns in the area. We didn't need to be isolated in the National Park and have to drive a long way for groceries. We have the environment that is so precious in the Olympic Peninsula without the isolation.

A peaceful, private place to come home and relax after a day enjoying the multitude of adventures and wonders that the Olympic Peninsula. This northern-most section of the United States has more diversity than anywhere else in the nation and its all a short drive from here.

PERFECT ROMANTIC COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The 6 nights we stayed here will b one of the best memories that I will cherish forever . The cottage was beautiful inside , furnished to a very high standard and everything you could want . Home made biscuits and decent tea bags which are hard to find over there sometimes !! I rarely used the oven but when I did I loved it ! And want one ! lol
It was cosy romantic and private . I loved sitting on the rocking chair listening to the frogs chorus at night . The ladder upstairs pleased the boyfriend as it prevented one having too many wines ! The cottage is in a perfect area . Suzanne was only an email away but gave us the privacy we wanted . The chocolate brownies left for us were lovely and a very thoughtful touch :) we hope to return as this is a yearly destination for us ! Thank you so much Suzanne !

EXCELLENT AND BEAUTIFUL AREA AND COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
The only reason I would hesitate to recommend this place to someone is because I don't want you to snatch up the cottage for the next time I want to go there... Suzann and Martin are great people, friendly and accommodating, and the property itself is incredibly serene. It feels very private and yet Sequim and Port Angeles are just short drives away. I spent a long weekend there in March and plan to go back at least twice more this year.

30TH ANNIVERSARY - HONEYMOON GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This is our second week-long stay at pond cottage. The serene, private setting, promotes a honeymoon-like stay, which is great since this was our 30th anniversary. It was time out from being, mom and dad, grandma and grandpa, and back to being our romantic selves ;). I love this cabin, it provides gracious warmth and comfort, while outside we can get a front seat to nature. The mountains, the quiet pond, the deer who come by nightly... This has been heavenly. Pond Cottage has provided us with our favorite stay! Thank you Suzann and Martin!

BEAUTIFUL!!

  • 5 of 5
Very cozy and clean cabin in an ultra-quiet setting. Kitchen was extremely well equipped, and meals on the front deck were always well attended by the local deer population – what a treat. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights in this great cabin, and the location is perfect for access to all the sights of the Olympic peninsula.

STILL WILD

  • 5 of 5
The frogs sang us to sleep. In the middle of the night a pack of coyotes came through the area yipping and barking. Deer wandered through the yard while we were eating breakfast. The red winged blackbird scolded us when we approached the pond as he protected his territory and young. Small fish jumped in the pond. Clean air and a lack of traffic noise completed our peaceful and regenerative stay in nature. Simple meals prepared in the small kitchen tasted all the better in this setting. Suzann’s choices of furniture and finishing woodwork touches on the cottage completed the home-like feel. The view of the Olympic Mountains and the nearness of the salt water was the icing on the cake. Thank you very much Martin and Suzann for your hospitality.

GRACEFUL BEAUTY

  • 5 of 5
We wanted to be as close to nature as we could be without camping, and the Pond Cottage had everything and more. From dawn to dusk we enjoyed the gentle sounds of nesting birds, heard through our always open sliding glass door (with screen). Our day hikes and walks were short drives away, as was the grocery store. We felt embraced by the graceful, natural beauty at Pond Cottage. We deeply rested and felt rejuvenated being in the foothills of the Olympics, while staying in a place with all of the conveniences of home. We'll go back as soon as we can plan another trip.

Notes:
This tastefully designed northwest-themed cottage has become the 'honeymoon cottage'. So private and romantic, it has provided a honeymoon setting for over 14 couples (as of 2013). Most of the couples enjoyed it so much they have returned for a 1st anniversary celebration. An author stayed long enough to finish a novel he had been working on and five seniors even found they could share the space comfortably. It should be noted that the photos look like it is very isolated. The Cottage is private yet completely secure and surrounded by friendly neighbors that are out of view.
