Emerald Cottage is a historic 1900's home located within walking distance to town and all it has to offer. For those romantics who want to step back in time you'll be delighted with all of the eclectic touches throughout this home but with the assurance that you'll sleep like a baby on the plush pillow top mattresses and shower with fluffy hotel quality towels.

Make sure you partake in everything Gig Harbor and nearby areas have to offer. After you've strolled through the quaint downtown and shopped the boutiques and antique stores take your pick from any of the great restaurants and cafes to have your fill of some amazing culinary delights. Of course seafood is always on the menu.

From the ever popular Tides Tavern for casual waterfront dining to Anthony's where the views are as fabulous as the food. You won't be disappointed by the wide culinary choices.

Gig Harbor is surrounded by water so you can take your pick of activities. Take a nautical tour of the Sound with Destiny Tours, check out the History Museum to learn about Gig Harbor's nautical past, pack a picnic and head to one of the many great state parks for a day of sun and sand.

Paddle boarding, kayaking, boating, shopping, restaurants and coffee shops abound within blocks.

Take a day to hop over to Tacoma where you'll find the Glass Museum (lots of Chihuly), Natural History Museum, Children's Museum and the newest addition, the Le May Car Museum.

Reserve a day to catch the ferry that you see from your perch on the ridge as it crosses from the mainland to Vashon Island. The ferry, located as it is at Tacoma's Point Defiance makes for a whole day excursion.

Spend half the day at the park where you'll find one of the best zoo's in the Northwest, saunter through the rose and Japanese tea gardens. Then enjoy the thrill of being on a honest to goodness vintage sailing vessal.

Enjoy a scenic drive around Vashon Island before you partake of some very popular restaurants at the center of the island.

So much to do, or not to do. After all relaxation counts as a vacation too!

Optional services include an in home chef, personal driver, transportation to and from the airport, activity bookings-kayaking, boating, scenic cruises, scenic flights, special event planning, yacht rental.

We can also arrange for airport pick up, activity bookings or special occasion arrangements.
