Nested at the base of a wooded acre lot, adjacent to a forested ravine, across a single lane curvy road from a 8 acre greenbelt hillside, you will feel that you are miles away from society. However, you are really only .5 miles from Cooper Pt. Rd, a major arterial, and only barely 3 miles from Hyw 101 and Interstate 5....moreless

Cottage is located on Butler Cove, a tidal saltwater cove off Budd Bay in south Puget Sound. Nestled in a wooded area, the cottage is less than 5 minutes from The Evergreen State College and only 10 minutes from the State Capitol and downtown Olympia. Butler Cove is a tidal area that empties to a stream at low tide and fills to the bulkhead at high tide.
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 Eld Inlet, Washington, USA:
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 Cottage:
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.
