Sequim 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...

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.

A WONDERFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5

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.

Heaven

  • 5 of 5

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.

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!
