About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Imagine yourself leaving the stress behind as you drive along Puget Sound to Serendipity Cottage. No waiting for the ferry, no putting chains on your car, no driving long distances to find seclusion. Imagine relaxation taking hold as you descend the staircase to your romantic garden cottage by the sea, and the delight to your senses as you enter -- into the aroma of fresh-baked treats in honor of your arrival and a magnificent vista across the Sound and on to the snow-capped Olympic Mountains. Perhaps a heron or a soaring bald eagle will celebrate your arrival!

This romantic haven can be your cozy hideaway for the week or longer! While close to Seattle and its popular tourist destinations, close also to wilderness adventure and winter sports in the nearby Cascade Mountains, and a short drive to the Boeing factory and museums, Serendipity Cottage is secluded and private. There is a private wooden deck off the bedroom and, in the middle of the garden, a circular viewing deck. Gorgeous sunset views are available from many vantage points.

This one-bedroom, 2 bath, smoke-free cottage, perfect for two, is fully furnished, Enjoy panoramic views from south and west-facing picture windows. Television, DVD, and wireless internet are all provided, if you can bring yourself inside or tear yourself away from the windows.

And the views are truly spectacular. This is a favorite spot for birdwatchers in all seasons. Beachcombers love wading in sun-warmed waters during low tides. A 3.5-mile woodland trail begins or ends on the beach just a few steps outside the door. Quaint, downtown Edmonds is less than 5 miles away, with shopping, festivals, live performances, a movie theater, and a world-class underwater scuba park. Kingston is just a short 20-minute ferry ride away, where you can enjoy crepes for breakfast and take in the farmers' market on weekends before taking the next ferry home.
