Guest Review:

"The Bee Keeper's Cottage is simply ADORABLE, located in a beautiful backyard with private access. Has all the amenities one would need; also very comfortable for two people. Not too far to shopping center.

The Beekeeper's Cottage is a short term/vacation rental. Located beside the main home the beekeeper's cottage has friendly, happy bees to right of driveway that provide fresh honey. There are 6 chickens {Will share fresh eggs}. We have 2 sweet white small ducks that enjoy the back-yard pond/water-fall area. We also have a 12-year old black manx kitty names Gideon, and a small indoor dog named Daisy plus a sweet bunny named Newman.

In summer we have a beautiful garden and a wonderful back-yard and relaxing hammock. We also have kayaks available for you to use.

The cottage is decorated in a beekeepers style, with an antique white iron bed with a new mattress. A small kitchenette and a bathroom with a shower.

This property is also ideal for traveling professionals on an out of state project, locals needing a residence while their home is under construction, traveling nurses, graduate college students, people moving into the state and looking for a place to stay while they house shop.

* Safe neighborhood in Gig Harbor, minutes to Tacoma

This beekeeper's cottage is an easy drive to Tacoma, Bremerton, Seattle, Bellevue, Mt. Rainier and the rainforests of the Olympic Mountain range.

But first 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. 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 variety of culinary choices.

Gig Harbor is surrounded by water so you can take your pick of activities. Go whale watching 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.

The Perfect Sanctuary -- absolutely a wonderful and an amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This adorable cottage is the perfect place! From the moment I arrived, I was welcomed by Nina, who had prepared a tea tray with a welcome gift packet. She went above and beyond to make sure that my stay is comfortable. This cottage is still very new, tastefully decorated, and extremely clean (and my standard of cleanness is very high!!).

The kitchenette is fully equipped with all necessary tools and well stocked with complimentary drinks, honey and fresh eggs from their own chicken…etc. The bed is extremely comfortable. The beddings and towels are equal in quality to the 5-star hotels I have stayed! This cute little cottage looks and feels brand new and truly deserves a 5 stars +. It is tugged away peacefull in a quaint neighborhood—very lovely and relaxing.

I sold my house and needed a place to stay before I find my new home. For my extended stay, I requested for a writing desk so I could do some work, and I got one that works perfectly. Nina always responded immediately to my requests. I highly recommend this luxurious cottage in the woods and will definitely come back myself! Thanks so much, Nina!

5 Star Luxury Tiny House Getaway! BeeKeeper's Cottage is the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

WOW. This place is AMAZING. We had an incredible adventure and stay at this stunning cottage. The cottage is so lovely with its gorgeous modern farmhouse feel; the linens, decorations, beautiful kitchenette (very well stocked), and bathroom. We were even greeted with some treats - coffee starter pack, holiday chocolates, fresh eggs from the chickens, and BeeKeeper's own honey and beeswax chapstick. Such a great welcome! The cottage is in pristine condition, extremely clean, and is staged with scrupulous attention to detail. Impressive. We loved the decor! And the hot tub; it was so fun to soak in the hot tub while looking at the stars.

During our stay we enjoyed all the charming sights and entertainment of beautiful Gig Harbor - it really is a marvelous place to visit. Living in Seattle this felt like the perfect getaway (from our kids! HAHA) for a weekend of rest and relaxation.

Before arriving at the Beekeeper's Cottage we were debating whether the tiny house would be too small for us - my husband and I are both very tall and not small by any means. It was just perfect. We were extremely comfortable and there was more than enough room. And the bed is so comfortable. We could tell that every detail was meticulously organized and planned to maximize space and design. It really is a gorgeous home. And so fun to experience the "tiny house movement" in this precious cottage. Thanks so much for having us, we hope to come back soon!!

Warm and cozy terrific

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful comfortable stay at The Beekeepers Cottage. We were welcomed with a basket of Cutters Point Coffee and chocolates. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very good. The fresh eggs in the morning was a wonderful bonus provided by the owner. We enjoyed the hot tub which we arrange to use. It was wonderful and clean. As was the chicken coop and everything else on the property.We enjoyed the Christmas lights on the boats in downtown Gig Harbor and enjoyed shopping in the harbor and eating out.The owner was very hospitable and accommodating. It was a wonderful stay and we will definitely be back. Sincerely Mike Gates
