|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Imagine yourself leaving the stress behind as you drive along Puget Sound to Serendipity Cottage. No waiting for the ferry, no putting chains on your car, no driving long distances to find seclusion. Imagine relaxation taking hold as you descend the staircase to your romantic garden cottage by the sea, and the delight to your senses as you enter -- into the aroma of fresh-baked treats in honor of your arrival and a magnificent vista across the Sound and on to the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. Perhaps a heron or a soaring bald eagle will celebrate your arrival!
This romantic haven can be your cozy hideaway for the week or longer! While close to Seattle and its popular tourist destinations, close also to wilderness adventure and winter sports in the nearby Cascade Mountains, and a short drive to the Boeing factory and museums, Serendipity Cottage is secluded and private. There is a private wooden deck off the bedroom and, in the middle of the garden, a circular viewing deck. Gorgeous sunset views are available from many vantage points.
This one-bedroom, 2 bath, smoke-free cottage, perfect for two, is fully furnished, Enjoy panoramic views from south and west-facing picture windows. Television, DVD, and wireless internet are all provided, if you can bring yourself inside or tear yourself away from the windows.
And the views are truly spectacular. This is a favorite spot for birdwatchers in all seasons. Beachcombers love wading in sun-warmed waters during low tides. A 3.5-mile woodland trail begins or ends on the beach just a few steps outside the door. Quaint, downtown Edmonds is less than 5 miles away, with shopping, festivals, live performances, a movie theater, and a world-class underwater scuba park. Kingston is just a short 20-minute ferry ride away, where you can enjoy crepes for breakfast and take in the farmers' market on weekends before taking the next ferry home.

I can't say enough. The "Serendipity" cottage, the view, the pie and last but not least John and Laurie. OUTSTANDING!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
This was our second stay at the cottage and we enjoyed it even more than the first stay. The fresh baked pie at arrival was second to none, which is always a great start. The view is awesome, which is not only of Puget Sound, but of whatever wildlife or birds that may in the area. It is a great place to go and relax, relieve stress and appreciate the greater things in life. Edmonds is a great community to shop and eat. The ferry to Kingston leaves from downtown and you can even catch a train to Vancouver, B.C. if you want some adventure. There are many wild blackberry bushes to harvest in August & September, plus John & Laura grow all kinds of berries, plums,apples, and even some rhubarb. John & Laura are great hosts, always willing to provide information, and their "talking stool" idea is very helpful. We look forward to our next visit. The 38 or 39 steps down to the cottage can be a challenge, but it is still well worth it.
Wow! our vacation in Edmonds , wa. was amazing! The Serendipity Cottage exceeded all of my expectations. The Cottage was clean, quiet & comfortable. The Host were wonderful - not intrusive yet there for anything we needed. Love the " talking stool". We could leave note with question or need & John responded promptly and completely. The Views of the sound and the garden are breathtaking and relaxing. We enjoyed walking along the beach and hiking in the park just down the street. Edmonds is a beautiful little city with nice shops and places to eat, and only 20 min from Seattle. Location was perfect for our trip.I have family in Evertt and Monroe. We often stayed in hotels on previous trip to Wa. None can compare to staying at the cottage. I have found my new favorite place in Washington and we cant wait to return. Thank You John and Lauie for sharing your place & the scrumptious pie with us!
Our one week stay at Serendipity Cottage in July was absolutely wonderful. The owners were very gracious, knowledgeable of the area and bake a great pie that was waiting for us on our arrival! The cottage is located on a very quiet street, and was very clean, comfortable, private and has a gorgeous view of the sound. The kitchen is well equipped; bed is comfortable; overall everything is as good or better than advertised. There are about ten steps from the street down to the cottage private entry, where the living rooms and kitchen are upstairs with the bedroom on the bottom floor. Full bath on both floors. It felt like home in a couple days. I didn't see any mass transit nearby, so I think a car is probably a necessity. It's a great location as a home base to day trip to Seattle, the Olympic peninsula, or the Cascades. A wonderful place to stay at a very reasonable price. Hope we can visit again.
The million dollar view of Puget Sound and The Olympic Mtns. alone make this a 5 star property. The adjacent beach and close proximity (a 5 minute walk) of a forested park with trails are icing on the cake. Or maybe I should say icing on the pie as the proprietors greet you with an amazing fruit pie on arrival. The Kingston ferry, the Sounder (rail transit to Seattle and Everett), Alderwood Mall, other stores, cinemas and restaurants are a few minutes away.
We are already planning our return.
My husband and I have stayed at Serendipity Cottage numerous times; our visits have ranged from a week to a month at a time. Every stay was delightful, from our greeting with a fresh-baked pie to our final good-bye to our warm and cheerful hosts.
We found our stays so restful. The views are spectacular and the sunsets indescribably beautiful. We often spent hours at the large windows watching the eagles and the waterfowl, and sometimes we were treated to a glimpse of dolphins dancing in the Sound.
We often took walks to the beach or along the beautiful wooded trail in the nearby park. The options range from a good workout walking up the steep hill in the park to a restful sit on a log at the beach.
We would stay forever if we could!
3.5 mile woodland/beach trail just steps from the front door, birdwatching (bald eagles, herons, osprey in immediate vicinity), fishing from cottage beach.
