Peace and tranquility

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I had "girls' weekend" here and stayed 3 nights. What a perfectly tranquil, peaceful spot. We loved watching all the birds and the changing weather over the water. The cottage itself was very well equipped and the beds and furniture were all very comfortable. Great place!!

Perfect. Heavenly cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

Debbie gave us a warm welcome, offered use of their private access road to the beach, and after closing with "let me know if there's anything you need", left us to enjoy and explore the area.

The cottage was beautifully decorated and well provisioned. It felt like we were staying with dear friends who had thought of everything.

Read Blake P.'s well written review on June 16, 2017. I absolutely agree with everything he said. All other positive reviews provided accurate descriptions of this unique and remarkable cottage and location.

The cottage is the last residence on a no-outlet street, with no neighbors in sight. We look out of the many front windows at a 180 degree view of a shoreline wildlife refuge. It was like our own private Dungeness Spit Wildlife Refuge. There were uncountable sea birds and waterfowl, as well as many birds at the well-stocked sunflower seed, suet and hummingbird feeders in front of the sunroom windows. When we weren't out hiking the pristine beach, or dining in Sequim (excellent food and service), I was in the sunroom. I feel a deep sense of peace just thinking about it.

This is absolutely the most heavenly vacation rental we have ever stayed in. Anytime we return to the Olympic Peninsula, we'll definitely stay here. We just loved it.

Thank you, Debbie!

Lovely cottage in a gorgeous setting!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming cottage in its idyllic setting on Sequim Bay! Peace and tranquility were ours, from coffee on the deck in the morning through wine by the fire pit or wood stove in the evening.The dogs loved playing in the huge yard too! The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped, including binoculars to observe wildlife from the sun room. Deborah was very friendly and welcoming, as were all the Sequin residents we met. We’ll be back!

Wonderful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to getaway for a couple of days after the holiday. Debbie greeted us soon after we arrived and went over a couple of things that we had questions about. The Cottage was perfect for us. We played lots of games, took naps, went to the Casino (we won!) and enjoyed the walk out on the Spit. We could not have asked for better. Thank you for sharing your little slice of heaven.

Perfect peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded my expectations and was a perfect weekend getaway. Debbie was very kind and welcoming, and her attention to detail in the cottage was noteworthy. It was warm, inviting, and very well-appointed. It really felt like home for the time we were there!
