Puget Sound Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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!

Great waterview cottage near downtown restaurants and shopping!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. The cottage was in a private setting near restaurants and shopping.

The kitchen has a full water view. The kitchen is also fully stocked with pots, pans, etc. The bathroom had great linens.

The availability of a washer and dryer was a big plus.

Will rent again!

Great water view downtown location

This cute little cottage is in the perfect location for Poulsbo. You not only have gorgeous views of the waterfront, but the cottage is right in town! So you can walk to everything. The cottage is charming and has a nice outdoor space as well.

Beautiful and cozy

  • 4 of 5

This was a truly relaxing getaway. Great place to unwind and recharge. Living room would be perfect with a rocking chair by wood stove - since we were able to have fires every night. Couch not very comfortable. Kitchen was great with its views and supplies. Would love to stay again.

Great place to get away!

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I stayed here for two nights and it was a great place to get away! We were able to be near the water and we loved the short walk into town. The cottage was tidy and the owners very helpful!

Wonderful Cottage close to town

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our long weekend stay at this cottage in January. Small, but entirely adequate for two persons. Might be a little small for 4, unless you really don't have to "get ready" for anything, and are just enjoying the area. Lovely view of the harbor from the cottage window. Would definitely stay here again.
