About Carol

Diagnosed with breast cancer at age 40 along with 4 other sisters and my mom. Went through a year of chemo in the days when Doctors didn't believe young women got breast cancer! Am also an occupational therapist with a specialty in Hand rehab for instrumental musicians.

Carol purchased this studio in 1998

Why Carol chose Olympic Peninsula

Old College friends bought this property for me and held it until I could pay for it. A great 'drinking story' if guests are ever really interested in hearing this one!

What makes this studio unique

This house is in a residential setting but so very close to local micro-breweries, Fort Worden, golf course and more. The view of the bay is mesmerizing. Lots of Bambi's abound.

Lovely cottage with view of water in the distance. Private deck. Tranquil getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Carol paid close attention to every detail. From the flower buds around the room taken from her beautiful garden; yummy snacks that greeted us as we walked in the door; option of a hot tub; clean clean room with silly soft sheets and cozy bedding for a restful sleep and lovely walking weather which she assured us was ordered for us. :) Very quiet hideaway 2 min drive to downtown.

Great location in Port Townsend

  • 5 of 5

Accomodations were great. Fully setup kitchen and well landscaped yard was a great break place for our family to stay and relax after weekend of hiking and beach in Port Townsend. We would definitely stay here again. Owner had welcome basked of fruit and cookies which was a needed though not expected bonus.

Lovely :-)

  • 5 of 5

I had a lovely stay: the place was so homey and Carol has gone to great efforts to ensure everything you'll need is right there. She is very welcoming, makes you feel at home, she shows you how everything works (including the hot tub) and then let's you have your privacy. Very recommended.

Adorable spot with tranquil view.

  • 4 of 5

Carol has thought of everything you might need. The hideaway is thoughtfully appointed with a giant deck from which you can watch deer, birds, the stars or the water. The gardens are lovely and you can catch up on your reading in the hammock under the trees.

We had a great visit!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write these reviews. They always make me smile. Homeaway must do the follow up because I never solicit them. It's like opening a little gift box when I get them. do come again! Carol

Sweet Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a sweet place. Carol was easy going, attentive and a great communicator making the entire process so smooth.

The place was just like the pictures. To describe I would say quality and attention to details. Well stocked kitchen, (complete with welcoming treats!) neat clean and comfortable sitting area, great bed, nice bathroom, great deck with a lovely view, entire place maintained with attention to small details. Great hot tub and gardens. Just have to see for yourself!!!
