Olympia cabin description

Waterfront cottage on Butler's Cove off Budd Bay in South Puget Sound near Olympia. Cottage sits 13 feet from water's edge. Boat, swim at high tide; beach comb at low tide. Quiet, wooded acre setting where you may spot deer, bald eagles, blue herons and other wildlife and birds.
Perfect location for visitors to The Evergreen State College or to the State Capitol. Great option for a romantic get away or for a family vacation. Cabin is five minutes from west Olympia (where you will find Skep `n Skein Pub, Vic's Pizza, grocery stores, food co-op, shopping, restaurants, plus movie theaters and shopping at Capitol Mall), and ten minutes from downtown Olympia (live theatre, waterfront boardwalk, marinas, Hands On Childrens' museum, restaurants, Fish Brewery/Brew Pub, and the State Capitol campus).
Good base for visits to Washington coast and Olympic Peninsula, as well as Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier.

                                    My family, dogs and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful home during our move (PCS) from WA to HI for almost 2 months. Everything was great, exactly as promised. We felt very welcome and at home. Debby understood our need for a long term rental during our move and accommodated us and all for requests. They even gave us a military discount. I can't thank them enough for sharing there home with us.Thank you for every thing.

                                    The Beach Cottage was so spacious and comfortable with so many homey and welcoming touches. There seemed to be decks everywhere! That was fortunate cause the cove setting was hard to stay away from. Fascinating to watch the tide go in and out, and the entire environment change. The animals, the birds, the beach or the boats. There was always life on the water! Debby couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating to work with. Nice too. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. There was a grill with all necessary accessories in the backyard patio, a picnic table and a lovely dining room inside surrounded by windows. There seemed to be windows everywhere! We loved waking up in the morning in the master bedroom to all the windows overlooking the cove. Was the tide in or out? Then perhaps a cup of coffee on the comfortable front porch for yet another view of the cove. While downtown Olympia with all its interesting things to do, (restaurants, the Capitol, etc) was very close, the Beach Cottage felt like we were transported to a another world, a very peaceful and beautiful one. Thanks again for everything, Debby! We've already made our reservations for next summer ...

                                    Loved this place! It is well-cared for, clean, and amply stocked with all the comforts of home. The hosts are responsive and made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would love to stay here again.

                                    Although it is an older cottage, it is extremely well maintained and neat as a pin. It is in a very cheerful and romantic setting. The owner was extremely helpful. Tons of thoughtful extra amenities (such as special towels for one's dog..). Stay here! You will be happy!

                                    Owner is very easy to work with. Cottage was perfect size for 3 adults. Very clean with nice "homey" touches by the owner. The location was perfect for us. Very nice views of the inlet from the deck. Would stay here again and would recommend to anyone.We really enjoyed our time at the Beach Cottage.

                                    My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed the brilliantly designed beach cottage, with gorgeous views out every window, making the whole place feel like there was no boundary between indoors and outdoors. We are looking forward to returning soon!

                                    This is a wonderful home to rent; everything that you need is here! The layout of the home is beautiful; many windows, right on the bay. It is CLEAN and comfortable. The owners offer so much hospitality - they even left a welcome message for us spelled out in magnetic letters on the refrigerator! All of the little things that you need like fresh coffee, filters, spices, soap, paper towel, etc., are provided - even fresh fruit and oatmeal for breakfast! We only stayed for a couple of days but this place would be comfortable for extended stays. It is very close to both the city of Olympia and Evergreen College and also a great central location for visits to Mount Rainier, Mount Saint Helens, White Pass and Crystal Mountain, Olympic National Park, Seattle, and Portland. I'll be back to stay in the future! Thanks Debbie!

                                    We stayed with our two young daughters (4 and 7) and my wife's brother. It was a nice spot on the edge of the bay. It's tidal, so it's interesting to witness the changing tides. My daughter had a great time collecting shells - they were everywhere. The house was cozy with a wood stove and windows in the living room and kitchen overlooking the bay. The larger bedroom overlooks the bay too. The house has more of a cabin-like feel settled within tall trees and the interior full of woodwork. There's a small boat with oars that's available for use to head out into the bay. I thought the price was reasonable.

                                    This cottage was outstanding. The pictures and descriptions were spot on. Wonderful view, even though it rained much of the time I was there. The house is well laid out, with everything you might need. The yard was perfect for the Puppy, except that he needed to be on a leash because he could have escaped under the deck, or at the end of the fence. Owners were most helpful if anything at all was needed. I'd come back if in the area again.

                                  Year Purchased: 1982

                                  About the owner: My family has owned this waterfront cottage since 1982. We lived there full time for 11 years before building a larger house to accommodate out growing (now grown) children. We continue to vacation at the cottage, hold family gatherings, or just go over for a walk on the beach or for a outing in the boat. We live not far away from the cottage so if you need anything while you are there, have questions, need directions or referrals, etc., we are usually nearby to be of assistance. The cottage is set up like a home and you will be quite comfortable there.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Olympia:
                                  We fell in love with the property the minute we first saw it in June 1982. The cottage is nestled at the base of a hill on an acre of forested land. The road to the property is a windy country road that hugs a forested hillside. The second you drive onto the road, you feel the cooler temperature, smell the forest and the water. You give a relaxing sigh. Ah, relaxation. From the decks of the cottage, you are only 13 feet from the shore edge and you can watch the tides come in and out, and view the wildlife: deer, seal, blue heron and other sea birds, salmon, river otters and more. A wonderful place to relax.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                                  Close to town but it feels like you are miles away. You can be downtown or at the State Capitol in 10 minutes, to The Evergreen State College in 5 minutes or less, and to Hwy 101 or Interstate 5 within 5 minutes, as well as to major grocery stores, shopping centers, service stations, movie and live theatres, pubs, restaurants, churches, museums, medical offices and the hospitals within minutes. But it feels like you are out in the country, in a quite, private retreat.
