Wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was super clean, Mark and Debbie were very responsive to us and Mark even came over and shoveled snow off the deck. We would love to go back during a different season as the wildlife viewing was great fun.

Enchanting and peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5

Look no further, this is THE place to spend a relaxing vacation in the Sequim area. Our mornings were spent having coffee in the sun room , watching the many birds (plus a fox and a couple of eagles) who visited the beautiful sanctuary in front of us. At night, we slept soundly on the most comfortable mattress. The cottage is small but extremely well planned and organized. And Debbie and Mark were gracious hosts who responded quickly to any questions we had. Truly breathtaking location - you won't regret it!

Peaceful and restful refuge.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage on WA Harbor is lovely, well appointed, and beautiful situated on the harbor. The house is exactly as pictured, well stocked. Debbie has thought of everything, and we were grateful. We took long walks on the beach everyday, and enjoyed the town of Sequim.

Peace, Quiet & a Big Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. It was incredibly easy to check-in, very cozy even in the snow, and just generally the perfect place to spend a few days while we explored the area and visited old friends. I appreciated how clean, functional, and nicely furnished the cottage was -- but the location is what really sets this place apart. We'll be back!

Paradise for Nature Lovers

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed in this lovely cottage for 2 months. We absolutely loved it and are already planning our next trip here. Debbie and Mark were incredibly easy to work with. They respond quickly to all communications and bend over backwards to make sure you have everything you could possibly need or want. The cottage has been very thoughtfully furnished and stocked with all the necessities and amenities. It is cozy, warm and inviting and we felt at home there immediately. It feels as if you are on your own private nature preserve and yet it is only 5 mins to town.

All the pictures of the cottage and the surroundings are absolutely spot on and yet both the cottage and the grounds are so much more than the pictures convey. This is a truly special place. The natural beauty is breathtaking no matter what the weather is doing. It is an ever changing picture postcard that never failed to amaze us and we never tired of looking at it. If you enjoy watching wild life then this will be paradise for you. Sitting on the deck, we watched Deer, Bald Eagle, River Otter, Harbor Seal, Great Blue Heron, Northern Harrier, Canadian and Cackling geese, Swan, Sandhill Crane, Quail, Kingfisher, American and Eurasion Wigeon, Hooded, Common and Red Breasted Merganser and many, many more species of birds. We also saw the local herd of Roosevelt elk on the way in to town on several occasions. Every day there was something new to see and observe.

The town of Sequim is a very nice small town with plenty of stores, shops and restaurants but if you want more, then Port Angeles is an easy 30 minutes away.

Of course the Olympic Peninsula has lots to offer in the way of natural wonders and the cottage is a great place to use as a base camp for visiting them.

The cottage is a wonderful, tranquil and peaceful place to escape to.
