Relaxing, reminded me of my great grandmothers home as a child

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying in this home. It was like a walk back in time to a simpler place. Cooking in the kitchen was so much fun; they have everything we needed and more. I also enjoyed the master bedroom and loved being able to leave the drapes open to enjoy the view and the morning light coming in. Sitting on the front porch swing at night and listening to only nature, I could not here the traffic, loud music, or anything; it is so peaceful. It is only a short, beautiful walk to any location in town. Of course, my daughter had to walk to the cemetery at midnight. That was a lot of fun, again just the sounds of nature and the dirt road under your feet. Amazing!

Overall, this was just a very welcoming place to stay. Clean and comfortable, with everything you need to feel at home.

Doesn't get much better than this.

My son and I stayed at Grace Cottage while attending the American Blade Smith Society Fall hammer in. Located in Washington AK the cottage fits the theme of the entire town very historic. When we walked in we found delicious fresh baked cinnamon rolls and a park entrance coupon on the kitchen table. The cottage was furnished with mostly antique furniture. A cool old time radio in the parlor that my son insisted on listing to and was excited that '"something this old" still works. We walked around the historic town until nightfall and then retired to very comfortable beds. The location was only two block from the hammer in which was super convenient. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone visiting Washington or other nearby locations.

P.S Joshua we would love to have the recipe for the cinnamon rolls.
