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!

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.

WATERFRONT COTTAGE

  • 4 of 5
This is the perfect retreat if you want peace and quiet in a country setting, but would like to be able to visit Seattle and do some city things, too. Close enough to some hiking or boating activities. Clean, comfortable, great for taking walks or sitting on the pier contemplating life. The only thing missing is a fireplace and a cozy fire at night, you'll have to settle for the wall heater.

ENCHANTED COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
It was only a two night getaway, but felt so relaxed - as if we had been away a week - yet the time flew by so quickly. It was absolutely delightful - Eagles flying overhead, seals on the beach and scenery to enrich the soul. What a cozy, romantic little cottage with everything equipped - just bring yourselves. We walked, picked blackberrries and plums and relaxed to the max. This trip revived our relationship - it was wonderful,.

GRANDPARENTS WEEK

  • 5 of 5
This place was great for not only us, but our two grandchildren also. (ages 13 & 9) The kids spent a lot of the time searching under rocks and walking the beach when the tide was out... We were siting at the table one morning and two dear came into the yard to pay us a visit... Great time had by all.....
