Harvey Stone purchased this cottage in 1990
We have been developing this property for over 20 years. With over 6 acres of gardens, pond, waterfall and pasture We love this spot because we are close to town but a world away and totally private.
Immediate access to Interurban trail, hiking on Chuckanut mountain and beach access at Larrabee State Park. Donkeys, chickens, trout, dogs and cats. Cottage is very private with beautiful view of pond and waterfall
This was truly a magical place! The property and gardens are absolutely beautiful! The first thing we did was hike up the waterfall to experience the overview of the property, which was so beautiful! The time of year we went was perfect, all the trees were starting to lose their leaves and had so much color. The cottage was everything we could ask for. The hikes near by were unreal as we did three of them. We loved the animals that are on this property. This was truly an amazing experience that we won't forget! We will definitely be back and looking forward to it!
Thank you very much Harvey and Deb!

Jake and I had a great second visit at the Pond Cottage:) What an oasis for a fall vacation! We loved seeing the animals again and having fires each night in the new fire pit (beauty!). It was great to get to meet Deb-she was kind enough to loan a guitar to Jake during our stay:) You guys are awesome and such warm hosts!! Until we see you again-thank you much!

We plan to go back. The location was central to lots of outdoor sightseeing, biking, walking/hiking, oyster eating, beer guzzling... LOVED the meditation maze, outdoor yoga platform looking up at the waterfall, the resident cats, dogs and donkeys. And we really appreciated the book with local suggestions. Thanks, Harvey & Deborah!
Perfect tiny little cottage with peaceful and relaxing vibe. Gorgeous grounds that made us feel like we were worlds away from all of the hustle of our daily lives. Close to many trails, parks and breathtaking scenery. We loved it and hope to visit again.
Clean, well-equipped and comfortable. We give the Pond Cottage two thumbs up!!
The grounds are gorgeous and donkeys very friendly. We had a great time! So much to see and do.
We so enjoyed our stay with our greyhound at this lovely cottage. We wanted to avoid fireworks and we did! Harvey and Deb are wonderful hosts and their animals are too! We were able to let our newly adopted greyhound off-leash and she ran and romped with Bobby, their little black lab mix. Great hiking nearby, beautiful Chuckanut area and wonderful restaurants minutes away. And as a senior citizen with back issues, the bed and bedding is luxurious.
