Overview

Olympic Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

The Cottage at Washington Harbor is on a natural saltwater lagoon adjoining the Straits of Juan De Fuca about 2.5 miles east of Sequim. Located on a 190 acre private wildlife refuge, a paradise for bird watchers, kayakers and nature lover's. Last house on a dead end road means a quiet and peaceful stay. Minutes from shopping in Sequim and unlimited outdoor activities in Olympic National Park and the Olympic Discovery Trail. The Cottage looks out over the lagoon, the Straits, Protection Island and Mount Baker. Two active Bald Eagle nests are located on the north and south shores of the lagoon where eagles live year round. Seals, otter, Great Blue Herons and more all outside your front door. One of the most unique settings on the Olympic Peninsula.

Both queen size beds are new and have luxurious feather mattresses and down comforters for a great night's sleep...

Perfectly beautiful spot !

  • 5 of 5

Lovely setting - deer, seals, geese, eagles, and too many other birds to count. Beautiful sunsets, and one impressive thunderstorm. The cottage has both a deck and solarium for viewing it all, providing a very open feel to this home.

All is clean and well maintained, with a nice kitchen and grill.

Not enough stars to rate how great this trip was

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently went on a cross country trip and spent a month in WA with a portion of that trip being at this lovely home. If I could have stayed there forever I would have. This was our second time staying in this home and it was even better than the first. We felt 100% at home. We spent the majority of the time on a picnic blanket laying in the sun in the giant beautiful lawn. We have never had a family vacation that felt as amazing as it did at this home. Everything you need is there. The view is unbelievable. You are about 5 minutes from town but it feels like you are no where near one. I cannot think of one thing I would change about this home other than making it mine permanently!

Vacation Time at the Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Now that my husband and I are retired, we are especially enjoying being able to travel at a slower pace. Before retirement, when we got away from home, it was often a mad rush to see how many places we could cram into a short time period. This often meant a new hotel every night. It wasn't restful and sometimes it was a relief to get home! Staying in this cabin was wonderful. Not only is the cabin's location in Sequim convenient to numerous Olympic Park visitor sites, but at the end of the day, you have a quiet, restful spot go return to. We enjoyed watching and listening to the abundant local wildlife.

The cabin is kept clean and in great condition. We found the beds to be comfortable and the kitchen well stocked. The convenient clothes washer/dryer and dishwasher made our stay even better.

I highly recommend this cabin to anyone visiting the area.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfect! Comfortable, nicely decorated and just the right size for my husband and myself (although it could easily accommodate 4). Loved the solarium -- sat there and watched the bald eagle and listened to the brief rain. But the best thing is the location. So quiet - nothing but the sound of birds. It's at the end of a dead end road with a marine lab to one side and a nature area across the water. It really doesn't get much better than this.
