Candle Shore Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was everything I had hoped it would be. What a wonderful respite, up close and personal with Puget Sound wildlife and neighborhood canine visitors during their daily beachcombing routine. The owner is a very gracious host and extremely accommodating, even providing freshly ground Starbucks coffee for breakfast! Perfect for one or two people. Short distance from the Southworth Ferry, so very accessible. Cozy and warm. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great central location to venture out to see other Washington sites. Can't say enough and can't wait to go back! Thanks, Chuck!

Southworth Cabin

  • 2 of 5
If you are looking for an idyllic, PNW beach cabin experience, in the summer, this is the absolute, ideal setting. Beautiful view, salt air, quiet, beachcombing and bird watching opportunities, solitude. However, the cabin is in much need of attention, if to be rented to paying guests: poor maintenance related to the plumbing/septic and operations of the shower, flushing of the toilet, kitchen sink; lack of cleanliness in the refrigerator and kitchen cupboards; significant, lack of cleanliness (and comfort) with the mattress and bedding, all of which needs replacement due to stains, dust, and age; several bath towels which had been used for dog washing, confirmed by smell; lack of repair and consequent safety, as related to a broken picnic table, and severely broken bench on the dock, a dock which sits 15’ above the rocks below, during a low tide. Further, this is not a dock for children, as it has no railing. It is disheartening to write such a review for a person’s business, but we felt compelled to share this honest and clear review of our experience at this cabin. May these factors and difficulties be corrected for the cabin’s future visitors.

Nice place

  • 2 of 5
Nice little cottage on the water, everything was fine except the plumbing, shower did not drain , toilet slow flush. She said she was sending a plumber but I guess he did not show---had to stand in water two nites for showers.

My mother, 13 yr old daughter and I stayed here for a week in August 2013. It was great! When I first walked in, I was struck with how small it was, but don't let that throw you. My mom took the bedroom while my daughter and I took the futon in the loft. It was very comfortable, even for my 50 year old body! The view can't be described adequately in words. The location was great for sightseeing in the area. We really enjoyed our time here!

Lovely getaway

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed for our anniversary. It was a wonderful stay filled with some amazing sunset photos. When the tide was out in the morning it was fun to stroll out to the water's edge sea shell hunting (there were hundreds of sand dollars!).The kitchen was well supplied. One observation, and this isn't a complaint, but remember that "cozy" = tiny. My wife and I are both fairly tall and we often found ourselves ducking thinking we were going to hit our heads or having to turn sideways to get through doorways (and we are not large). The bedroom is so small there is no room to walk on either side of the bed, so we had to crawl from the foot of it. It actually felt like a travel trailer bedroom. At said, the sound of the water lapping against the retaining wall was mesmerizing. While the fireplace is not functional, I felt that the array of candles (they even supplied the tea light candles) more than made up for it. We even made a fire in the fire pit outside and sat as we watched the sunset. Beautiful!

A few pointers we would suggest:
-There is a Trader Joes in West Seattle on the way to the Fauntleroy ferry. We stopped and stocked up for the weekend.
-There is a coffee maker and French press (nice touch). I couldn't find the whole bean coffee the information said would be there, so I wished I had picked some up on our way.
-if you prefer espresso drinks, we went to the Windmill espresso stand about 3 miles away.
-They recently updated the TV & DVD player, which is nice. But, ironically, while there was a collection of VHS tapes, there is no VHS player. However, there is a Redbox machine in the Albertons between the cottage & Port Orchard.
-Nearby Manchester State Park was a beautiful diversion. We hiked around for a couple of hours in the lush forest. Admission does require a discover pass, which you can purchase there for a day ($10) or a year ($30).

Overall we have a very nice time and would return. It made for a quiet, romantic getaway.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
I must say that this is the perfect little place for lovers, though I was not there with my second best I was there with my daughter and we really enjoyed ourselves. We saw harbor seals, eagles (every day) and even had the opportunity to see rare white pelicans. The cottage was comfortable, offered beautiful views of Blake Island and surrounding area's across the sound. The cottage was clean, and had all the linens needed. We were there for 2 weeks and would love to return. All our guest we had come for a visit just loved the place, we had a nice dinner party one evening and a bon fire another evening that everyone had a great time at. Thank you for a beautiful home away from home.
