About Nina M Dreyer
My name is nina, I started saving for this property when I was 11 years old. I bought the property right out of High School. In 1991 the house was purchased from Tacoma and moved onto the property. It was originally built in 1940. In 2016 the Beekeepers Cottage moved onto the property.
Nina M Dreyer purchased this Cottage in 1985
Why Nina M Dreyer chose Gig Harbor
I fell in love with this property when I was 18yrs old. I just love the big trees and all the birds and wildlife. The property is very close to the water and to beautiful Gig Harbor.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is located in a beautiful garden with a waterfall and a large open patio. There is a wonderful hot tub that makes star gazing and relaxing a year round event. In the summer there is a big Hammock for taking a afternoon nap. The two adirondack chairs on the porch is a perfect place to share a fresh brewed pot of coffee. From the deck you have a perfect view for watching the ducks play in the pond. The Harbor is just 7 minutes away, making grabbing a bite to eat and a movie a easy task.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
This spot is great. We where out and about all day and very relaxing to return to. Hosts are very nice and friendly. They had wonderful suggestions for things to do and eat.
My husband and I enjoyed every moment of our stay in Nina’s charming cottage. It was very relaxing, and peaceful. It was a pleasure visiting with Nina, in her beautiful yard, upon our arrival. As we came and went, my husband chuckled as I said to him, “I need to say hello to the ducks.” Ducks were my moms favorite animal, so not only did they bring me comfort, but also joy each time I said, “hello.” Thanks Nina, you are lovely.

Oh my gosh my heart is full. Thank you so much for sharing your connection with our feathered friends. So glad you enjoyed your stay and that you took the time to love on the Ducks! They say Hi!
Two thumbs way up!
Charming is an understatement. Fabulous weekend getaway! Great amenities & great host - Nina really makes you feel at home. Would give 6 stars if I could!
Fantastic - Two thumbs up!
Describing the Beekeeper's Cottage as 'charming' would be an understatement! A beautiful cottage with fantastic amenities. Nina is a very gracious host and knows just about everything there is to know about Gig Harbor :)
Highly recommend for any couple's getaway vacation!
Very nice visit to Gig Harbor. Busy there for Christmas shoppers. The cottage was nice, clean and inviting. I was expecting a 1 bedroom and it was a studio. Small quarters.
Would probably work well for others smaller in stature.
A bit cramped.
Had a great Thanksgiving hiding for family.
It was great meeting you. Glad you had a great time. Gig Harbor is a wonderful place to visit, with lots to do. Sincerely Nina Dreyer
The Beekeepers Cottage
This was the first time my wife and I stayed in a non-hotel. We absolutely loved it. Small and private and the scenery was beautiful! I feel any other place we stay at like this will not be able to live up to the BeeKeepers Cottage.
So glad your first VRBO experience was a great one!
Wow what a honor . I hope your wife had a great conference in Seattle and you enjoyed the beautiful city. It was wonderful getting to know you for that short time we had. I loved your sense of humor and your wife since of humor. You’re welcome to come back anytime. Hope to see you soon . Sincerely Nina The Beekeepers Cottage.
On the property there are gardens and two Bee hives. The owner makes soap, candles and chapstick from the wax.Also collects honey. There are two sweet ducks and a bunny. Near by there are concerts going on in coffee shops and wine bars. The Harbor is a beautiful place to stroll down the sidewalks and read about the Local families that founded the Harbor. We have great restaurants and plenty of activities going on. We have a very comfortable movie theater, with reclining seats. There is a kayak rental and a bike rental place in the Harbor. The shopping is great, also The Herritage Distillery is located down town. If your lucky you will see our Beautiful Mt. Rainier.
