About Marilyn

We moved to Sequim in 1987 after Larry's retirement from the U.S. Air Force. Since moving here we have spent many years hosting travelers from all over the world. First as a Bed & Breakfast in our home and then in 1998 Marilyn began property management as Brigadoon Vacation Rentals which she continued doing until selling the business in 2010.

Larry is currently a broker with John L. Scott Real Estate in Sequim. He can be contacted at 360-460-4300.

Why Marilyn chose Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

We think you will thoroughly enjoy staying at the Pompous Chef and will see the pride we have in making it available to you as you visit our beautiful little corner of the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came for the Lavender Festival and decided this is the area we would ultimately want to live. We had the benefit of a full moon which the coyotes seemed to love as they yipped and howled at the darkest part of the night with the moon as a bright orb chasing shadows. This house is a lovely little gem. A bright retreat to return to after hours of walking and sightseeing. Hurricane Ridge was an awe-inspiring example of what makes Sequim and the surrounding area so special. We had a great experience and we will be back!

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Pompous Chef! We were in Sequim for a wedding and stayed for two nights. The house is in a very quiet area. All we could hear was the horse across the street now and then which my toddler daughter loved! The hot tub was very relaxing to spend time soaking in. We enjoyed the short walk to the lake to see the beautiful scenery one morning while there. All of the amenities we could think of were provided and we really enjoyed our stay!

immaculate cottage in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, clean, and completely equipped. Perfect location for exploring Sequim and the Olympic Peninsula. Lovely, quiet setting. Private and away from the crowds - with a horse as a neighbor! Marilyn was very helpful in pointing out good restaurants and where to buy groceries.

The house was the perfect size for the four of us and the washer/dryer was really useful. Marilyn even provided laundry detergent! A great place to stay.

Best rental we've used.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was probably the best place we've rented to date. Charming, clean, comfortable and well maintained, it had every thing two active older couples could want. If we ever went back to the same area twice and we haven't,yet, we'd come back here every time.

Very cute, charming, cozy and comfortable cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Located in a quiet countryside with meadows and birds singing, this is a very relaxing place to get away. We loved that we could bring our small dog who had so much fun walking down the lane to the lake with us. We went to the nearby country store and bought wonderful delicious food to cook on the grill. The setting is great and the cottage is clean and quiet with comfortable beds, wifi, cable, books and magazines. My mom absolutely loved it and we all found it very relaxing. I recomend this place of you are looking for a cozy getaway.

Perfect little cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is perfectly decorated. The kitchen is stocked to accommodate almost anything you would want to make. The bedrooms are very roomy and so tastefully decorated.

I was in town visiting my parents for the holidays. All of my siblings came by to see the cottage, now there will be a competition to see who rents it first next time!

I couldn't have been more pleased, thank you!
