The owners live next door. Their house and the vacation rental house are on a 5-acre property next to a forested part of the Port Madison Indian Reservation. Troy, formerly an engineer, now grows orchids professionally. He did much of the renovation work. Phyllis is an ecologist and converted blackberry thickets, goat pen and weedy lawn to garden and native wildflower meadow. A sweet German shepherd living on the property showed up as a stray several years ago.
Troy Meyers purchased this cottage in 2005
We purchased this property to preserve the local forest ecology. By becoming its steward we kept it natural so that it continues to be a wildlife corridor to the adjacent wetlands.
The house is one-of-a-kind, of A-frame construction with rough-hewn logs and timbers, Douglas fir floors, and many interesting angles. The heavy rounded-top front door is secured by a big wooden lever. A split-log ladder-like staircase takes you to the loft master bedroom.
As advertised and more!! I highly recommend both hosts and habitat.
My friend and I stayed here one night just as a little adventure to take photos. The hosts were lovely and all the little details of the cottage were really thoughtful and beautiful. We especially loved the Bluetooth speakers, the giant kitchen window and the greenhouse. The owners all sorts of new projects going as well so we will definitely be back for some more magic!
My now husband and I stayed here for a few days before and after our Poulsbo wedding. Couldn't have chosen a better secret get away. Was a nice calm place for husband to get ready for the wedding, and a secluded, quiet hidey house for us to relax in after. Close enough to the main drag of Poulsbo and the water, but far enough away as to feel like you are in nature.
My husband and I stayed here for the start of our honeymoon and it was the perfect place to unwind after all the stress of the wedding. The owner met us at the door to give us keys and a tour and then left us in peace the rest of the time (but was always nearby if we needed anything.)
The cabin itself is lovely, rustic but with Modern comforts and a very serene setting. It's far enough away from everything to be completely quiet at night but anything we needed was a quick drive away. It's also in a great spot for day trips to Seattle or Olympic National Park.
We had a wonderful stay and hope to make it back sometime soon!
Can't say enough wonderful things about this cottage, or Troy and Phyllis. They were very welcoming, accommodating, and wonderful to spend a few weeks as neighbors with. The cottage is amazing. Cozy, beautiful, well furnished, and totally equipped, with huge windows that seem to let the forest inside all day long. We LOVED it, and in fact will be back there in a few months.
If you are looking for a relaxing cabin out in the woods...but still close to Seattle and other amenities, this is it. The cabin was super clean, the bed comfortable, the gas fireplace inviting...I highly recommend this place.
