Serene setting with wonderful birds.

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days in this restful oasis. We have usually stayed on the ocean with pounding surf, but this was one of the most peaceful places we have stayed. It is on a tidal marsh with hundreds of birds. The house includes binoculars and bird books. I had picked this house because of the solarium and what a setting for an office. I so appreciated the attention to detail from the hot water dispenser and detachable shower head to the darling ceramic French chickens in the kitchen. This house is in my top ten favorite list because of the private nature setting it provides in the comfort of a very cozy cottage.

Exceeds Expectations

  • 5 of 5

I grew up in Sequim and we still head over often to visit with family and friends, so I am constantly looking for the perfect place to stay while we're there and it looks like we found it!

The Cottage is conveniently located close to town while still feeling like you're in the middle of nowhere. The views of the water are fabulous and my husband and I didn't turn on the TV once while we were there, opting instead to spend our time checking out the changing tides and the different varieties of birds that come with them.

As many of you know, staying in a vacation rental needs to come with the illusion that you're the only people who've been there in order to be truly relaxing and this place was not only spotless, but had a very good energy to it, making us feel right at home.

Deborah was part of this great energy; friendly and helpful while still allowing us space to enjoy our stay.

Thank you so much ... we'll be back!!

Peaceful, comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Everything we needed seemed to be there. The beds were comfortable, the scenery was fantastic, and it was so peaceful. We were two grandmas with our 7 year old granddaughters and had a delightful time. The girls loved watching the geese in the mornings.

We couldn't have asked for a more delightful destination for a three-day escape from the city than this lovely Sequim rental. It was spotlessly clean, comfortably furnished, and offered stunning views and complete privacy. The deck, solarium and yard are each so large and welcoming that we spent little time inside the spacious and inviting living quarters. Highlights of the stay were the frequent bird sightings, both in the water and at the several feeders on the deck. Don't miss the incredible night sky - the isolation and solitude offer an incredible view of the stars. And if time permits, nearby Lake Crescent is a gorgeous destination. Debbie is a helpful and thoughtful host - we can recommend the cottage without hesitation.

We are just finishing up our stay in this beautiful, charming cottage. Everything is immaculate, the decor is delightful and perfect for the setting. The cottage is homey and welcoming. When we arrived and walked up onto the porch, we were absolutely stunned by the magnificence of the location and view of the lagoon, the tree covered hills, and the panorama over the Puget Sound to the Cascade Mountains and Mt. Baker. Breathtaking, really. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and in the sunroom watching the tides go out and come as we were entertained by the many Canadian geese, Great Blue Herons, chickadees, hummingbirds, StellarJays, Bald Eagles and numerous other smaller water birds. Every morning we watched deer cross the lawn to then walk across the lagoon. We saw otters going for a swim and raccoons looking for shellfish in the mud. Debbie was a wonderful and gracious hostess. This cottage and nature preserve it is part of is spectacular and an absolute treasure. We hope to come again next year.
