This adorable cottage has a lot of surprises when you walk thru the door. Elegant linens, wonderful furnishings, comfortable beds and everything else your heart desires. No camping out here!

Located on an acre in beautiful Happy Valley, which is just 3 miles south of downtown Sequim, the Chef will suit your every need. Enjoy a short walk down to the lake where you can enjoy a quiet picnic and observe the local ducks. On certain occasions you might even have a visit by the Sequim Elk Herd. The Pompous Chef offers a good location to use as a home base while you are visiting our beautiful area.

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!

Very well designed with plenty of room to cook, read, sit outside. Excellent location - good birding down at the nearby lake and great birding nearby. Clean and wonderful to have a washer/dryer.

Exactly what I was looking for

  • 5 of 5

This is such a lovely, self-contained secluded cottage. Everything I wanted was provided, especially privacy and seclusion. The cottage is nicely decorated and the hot tub is a real slice of paradise. I would love to return in the Summer. The owner is delightful.
