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.

Holcomb Hideaway feels like home

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at Carol's cottage. I was in Port Townsend on a business trip for The Food Co-op and the cottage was perfect for a business traveler. The wireless internet access was excellent for work (and I was even able to stream Netflix without any problems). The cottage and the entire property was clean and well-maintained. And the kitchen was well-equipped with everything I needed (including a blender that Carol took from her house and let me use during my stay) and Carol even provided me with fresh fruit from The Food Co-op. The location of her cottage is within walking distance of downtown and uptown Port Townsend, the Ferry Terminal, the boat dock, and two grocery stores (including The Food Co-op). I will definitely stay at this cottage again if my travels bring me back to Port Townsend and I highly recommend that anyone travelling to Port Townsend stay at Carol's cottage, not only for its convenience to downtown, but also its "home-like" ambiance.

Thanks Carol!

Second stay....can't wait for #3!

  • 5 of 5

This sweet place is truly the perfect "Hide-Away". Carol, the host, is beyond gracious and has thought of every little thing to make a stay welcoming and leave you feeling pampered. The grounds are wonderful and private. The hot tub (and cottage) immaculate and oh so comfy and cozy. Location is great- just a 7 minute drive to Northbeach and all the charms of Port Townsend. We can't wait to return!

Restful getaway close to the action

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great place to stay for our 35th wedding anniversary. The gardens around the cottage are stunning. The back yard has several sitting areas to sit out and visit with friends. The cottage is just a short drive to Old Port Townsend. The hot tub was relaxing in the evening after a day out and about. Carol was very generous and accommodating of our arrival time and departure. If we are ever in the area again we will definitely check to see if Holcomb Hideaway is available.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A few of my friends and I stayed for a girls weekend in Port Townsend. Carol greeted us with flowers, wine, cheese and crackers, and delicious snacks! The cabin was adorable and super cozy. We never felt cramped or uncomfortable. It was clean and felt just like home. The space was secluded and having access to the hot tub, backyard, and bbq made our trip so much better. Thank you Carol! I will always remember the wonderful times we had and how welcoming and friendly you and your cabin were. I would LOVE to come back!

Owner's Response: If I could give 4 young ladies 5 stars as guests, they would get it! So neat, clean and gracious. They were very appreciative of even the littlest things! Thanks for making me smile the whole time you were there! Carol

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was not our first time in Port Townsend but it was our first time staying at Holcomb Hideaway. We can honestly say it was a wonderful experience. Carol was just so very lovely and accommodating. The place itself was immaculate, bright and cheerful. It had everything we could hope for: Coffee maker, microwave, sink, mini-fridge, coffee, hair dryer, etc. And Carol even went the extra step to provide little goodies for when we arrived. This place even has a phone which is something you don't see to often. We spent the weekend taking long walks, and sitting on the little balcony of the unit. Just what we needed for a little peaceful getaway. We will be back for certain.

Owner's Response: These folks drove 'all the way' from Vancouver BC in heavy peak season summer traffic. It was Seafair in Seattle no less!. I'm so glad it was worth the drive for them to come all this way.. Hope they come back soon! Carol

Ein wunderbarer Urlaubsplatz in Port Townsend

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren insgesamt 5 Wochen bei Carol in dem schönen Port Townsend und es war eine wunderbar erholsame Zeit. Innerhalb dieser Zeit haben wir beide Häuser kennengelernt: das Cottage und das Haupthaus und haben uns in beiden sehr wohl gefühlt.

Beide sind sehr liebevoll und komplett so eingerichtet, als wären sie für Carol selbst. Die Lage im Ort ist optimal und man hat einen schönen Blick in Richtung Bucht mit wunderbaren Mondaufgängen und vielen Vögeln (Kolibri) und anderen Tieren.

Die Betten sind sehr gut und auch für lange Aufenthalte bequem.

Im Garten gibt es sehr nette Plätze, die man mit benutzen kann und einen Whirlpool (hottub). Eine separate Waschküche mit Waschmaschine und Trockner stehen zur Verfügung. Auf Wunsch wird das Haus einmal pro Woche gereinigt.

Parken ist direkt vor der Tür möglich.

Bei Fragen oder Problemen kann man sich jederzeit an Carol wenden. Sie ist sehr hilfsbereit. Bei der Anreise fragt sie, was man gerne möchte, und kauft dann ein, damit man ggf. noch im Jetlag sich erstmal langsam umstellen kann.

Das Cottage ist hervorragend geeignet für kürzere Aufenthalte oder, wenn man allein reist und nicht viel kochen möchte.

Für einen längeren Aufenthalt zu zweit, bei dem man sich auch viel selbst versorgen möchte, ist das Haus genau richtig.

Einziger Nachteil: im Schlafzimmer des Hauses ist es morgens (erst) durch die 19th Street nicht mehr leise.

Im Cottage ist es komplett ruhig.

Wir würden gerne wieder hinfahren!
