Downtown Poulsbo Waterfront Cottage

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Welcome! This serene cottage is beautiful waterfront property on Liberty Bay in historic Poulsbo, WA. A tranquil setting just past Bainbridge Island and just 15 minutes from the Seattle ferry, it is a perfect place for those looking for both comfort and relaxation at home, or adventure in and around town. Strike out on a wide variety of outings-from boutique shopping and fine dining to paddling, kayaking and hiking. Historic downtown Poulsbo (a 2 minute walk from the cottage) is a quaint Scandanavian town with an active waterfront and seasonal festivals. Historic sights, beautiful port towns, and world-class hiking lie just over the Hood Canal Bridge in Olympic National Park. Or hop in a kayak right here for a paddle around Liberty Bay and views of the Olympics and Mt. Rainier.

The property is a stand alone cabin. It offers 1 bedroom (queen bed), 1 bathroom (shower only, no bath tub), living room (with a queen pull-out sofa), full kitchen, washer and dryer, and most importantly an amazing water and mountain view. It will easily accommodate 4. The beautiful yard offers waterfront access for kayaking or paddle boarding.

Why Maria Strange chose Puget Sound

Quaint, 'know your neighbor' sort of town. Fell in love with this town, and then the property.

What makes this cottage unique

Serenity. View. Waterfront. Seclusion, yet walkable to several restaurants. This place has it all!

Couldn't have been better

  • 5 of 5

Maria's cottage was perfect for the 2 of us--clean and well-maintained, amazing location and incredibly comfortable. We know that "cozy" means small but the inside spaces were so well placed and open that we never felt confined, And it was a bonus that on nice days we could sit out on our patio or lawn overlooking the harbor. We love the town of Poulsbo, which was an easy walk. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Location + Charm = Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Location is perfect. 2 minute stroll to the shops and restaurants. Beautiful walk out back to the waterfront. Communication and hospitality was perfect. Cottage stocked with all we needed and some. We had 2 kids with us, 4 total, and the bedroom plus a pullout was plenty of room. Very enjoyable weekend on the island. Thank you!

Perfect for Couples

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days and we would recommend this cottage to anyone who enjoys privacy and being near the water. The cottage is well kept and had all of the little extras to make our stay remmemberable. The shops and restaurants were within walking distance. Thanks Maria for a very enjoyable experience.
