Guestbook comments from the owner

The view from the master suite was so beautiful and wonderful to wake up to, it was hard to get up and about. We enjoyed the house so much and every aspect of our stay. A great kitchen to cook in, the hot tub, and the best places to read and relax. We look forward to coming again.

Perfect cottage with waterfront view and access

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed this wonderful "Garden Cottage". The owners thought of so many details that made this place so comfortable and top notch. We especially enjoyed the deck overlooking the water, the hot tub and the kayaks.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Garden Cottage, and we fully enjoyed ourselves. As we were sitting on the deck, I said, "Do you hear anything?" Answer: "No, nothing. No cars, no boats, no trains, no planes, no sirens, not even the wind." Perfect peace. We look forward to returning again next year. Thank you, Betty and Gary, for providing such a lovely spot for relaxing and rejuvenating--the perfect getaway!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

The Garden Cottage was a wonderful place! The heated floors, top notch appliances, knives, hot tub, view, beach access, kayaks, fire place, lush garden blooming with all colors, DVD selection, books and more were outstanding! Would recommend getting some throw blankets, as they are nice to curl up in on the couch and take in the amazing view. One of the best places we have stayed in our 10 + years renting with VRBO. Port Ludlow is a small quite area. Nice to relax and get away. Betty was great and with being right next door to the cottage, available if needed, but gave us our privacy. The only concern we had were the curtains, that Betty addressed before we booked. There are no curtains on the kitchen windows, front door, family room back door, & part of the master bed room, so it is very light in the morning. Betty did supply eye masks that worked great. The view is amazing and we can see why you wouldn't want to cover it up. However at night when it is dark and you can see in the house was our only concern. We just hung up some sheets and fabric we found at the second hand store with the Command removable hooks. Worked great! There is also another building that is being built on the property that is to the north of the cottage, not sure what it is but was no problem for us. Overall this was an amazing place and the hot tub view is unbeatable! Saw bald eagles every day, got the kayaks out on the sound, as it was like glass, was wonderful! Thank you Betty for sharing your slice of heaven on earth with us! Hope to be back with our girls next time!

Amazing Property in a quiet Peaceful Town

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here with my Wife for 5 nights in April. Property is located directly on the water with amazing views and private beach. Very modern architecture and furnishings with lots of amenities. From books, to DVD's, to binoculars with all the technology TV & Sound system you need as the owners literally thought of everything. Hot Tub and fire pit on the large deck out back with amazing views of the Sound. Very well kept property as the owners also own the property next door. Perfect stay and location for our trip with nearby hiking and sightseeing in Olympia National Park. Very good find on VRBO fro location and price it is unbeatable.

slice of heaven in a quiet town

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful house, with all the amenities you need for a quiet retreat away from it all. From wine for the guests, to kayaks, extensive movie collection and a hot tub...everything has been considered.

In addition, the owners are very responsive to any concern.

Photos true to reality.

Absolutely nothing but positives for this vrbo find.

New Years on the canal

  • 4 of 5

The garden cottage was everything we hoped for, great views, comfortable house, quiet setting. Only downside. . .the coffee pot did not work and for north-westerners it was a rough go for a couple of days. [there are ways to make due!] Betty was accessible and accommodating. Would consider staying again in the future.

Owner's Response: As coffee-lovers ourselves, we appreciate how disappointing it is not to be able to have that fresh brew in the morning. We were so sorry to hear about the coffee maker and directed our guests to the back-up coffee pot we maintain at the Garden Cottage (since we realize how important it is to have good working equipment). Unfortunately our guests did not know how that type of coffee pot worked (it doesn't need a carafe) and thought it, too, was broken, so when we heard that they still didn't have coffee, we ran the coffee maker from our house over to the Garden Cottage. While our guests ultimately were able to enjoy coffee for the remaining days of their trip, we've learned to put explicit instructions on all coffee makers and to stock some instant coffee, just in case. And, of course, we're buying a new drip coffee pot for our future guests' use.
