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.

Why Marilyn chose Sequim

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!

Quiet and Scenic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely and the amenities were comfortable. The WiFi worked flawlessly, which was great, and the property is only about 4 miles from so many dining and shopping options! The sleeping accommodations were comfortable and we had everything we needed.

Cozy Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Marilyn and Larry have created a quiet oasis in a peaceful pastoral neighborhood. They are dog friendly and have provided everything you need to relax and stay at "home". The cottage would be lovely if traveling with another couple. Bed was very comfortable and the chef theme was sweet and fun.

Thank you for your wonderful cottage,

Eileen, Fred and Bojangles
