Guestbook comments from the owner
We were snug as bugs in a rug during the snow storm in February. It was great to have the cozy cabin to return to each evening during our 5 weeks on the job in Olympia.
My family has owned this waterfront cottage since 1982. We lived there full time for 11 years before building a larger house to accommodate out growing (now grown) children. We continue to vacation at the cottage, hold family gatherings, or just go over for a walk on the beach or for a outing in the boat. We live not far away from the cottage so if you need anything while you are there, have questions, need directions or referrals, etc., we are usually nearby to be of assistance. The cottage is set up like a home and you will be quite comfortable there.
We fell in love with the property the minute we first saw it in June 1982. The cottage is nestled at the base of a hill on an acre of forested land. The road to the property is a windy country road that hugs a forested hillside. The second you drive onto the road, you feel the cooler temperature, smell the forest and the water. You give a relaxing sigh. Ah, relaxation. From the decks of the cottage, you are only 13 feet from the shore edge and you can watch the tides come in and out, and view the wildlife: deer, seal, blue heron and other sea birds, salmon, river otters and more. A wonderful place to relax.
Close to town but it feels like you are miles away. You can be downtown or at the State Capitol in 10 minutes, to The Evergreen State College in 5 minutes or less, and to Hwy 101 or Interstate 5 within 5 minutes, as well as to major grocery stores, shopping centers, service stations, movie and live theatres, pubs, restaurants, churches, museums, medical offices and the hospitals within minutes. But it feels like you are out in the country, in a quite, private retreat.
