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.

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.

Relaxation at it's best

  • 5 of 5

I am still trying to recover from withdrawl from leaving the Garden Cottage. What an incredible getaway in beautiful Washington. I loved the setting right on the water amidst all the wonderful trees. The interior of the house was spotless and everything top of the line. Communication from the owner was quick and they took care to make sure we had everything we could need. This is one of the best places one could stay and I hope I can have the pleasure to make it out to Washington again. Highly highly recommend!

Peaceful, inspiring, amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our four-day stay. The cottage was clean and well equipped. The beautiful accommodations were of hotel quality. The views were amazing! Kayaking and hiking were out the back door. The homeowners were available, if needed, but allowed us our privacy. We would highly recommend this quiet and relaxing Pacific Northwest haven.
