Awaken to chirping birds and create your dreams at the two story Olympic Cottage. This is a charming, lovely, snug, non smoking cottage in a true Port Townsend neighborhood among blossoming arbors and winding roads. Neighborhood nooks are a Port Townsend treasure; you are hidden on a tiny, quiet street past Uptown before Fort Worden.
Enter under an arbor at the wooden gate, walk down the brick pathway. What a quiet street, with arbors everywhere and deer wandering by!
Choose to sleep in the queen poster bed or relax on the loveseat upstairs.
As you step out for the day, there are so many choices: Go for a short nature hike to Fort Worden, stroll nearby beaches, or shop in Uptown about a half hour away via trails alongside Farmer John's Fields. Cherry street points you directly to Uptown. You can meander through green and hidden forested trails started by deer, offering solitude for adventurous explorers, connecting the bike pathway, beach, and State Park.
At the end of your adventure, return to relax on a comfortable couch convenient to the compact full kitchen.
Climb the spiral stairs, gaze at the lush greenery through the upstairs window, write at a Colonial desk once in the Master Bedroom.
Ecologically sound all wood construction, allergen free materials, fluffy towels, cotton quilts and cozy down comforters welcome and comfort you.
Broadband WiFi and Apple TV offer connectivity sufficient for business communications.
The entry along the brickwork path and plantings is welcoming and unique. Chickadees chirp a welcome as trees protect a host of various birds; deer browse the neighborhood.
Everything you need is artistically delightful and cozy~ teak hard wood floors, maple cupboards, Colonial banisters, antique oak table, claw foot tub, cherry doors, etc. Enchanting Maritime and classic artwork and antique maps grace the walls. The feeling and experience is unique and artistic because this special getaway was envisioned, designed and created by artists.
You may find your way downtown via San Juan Avenue, and the bus stop is on the corner of Cedar Street. Walk to North Beach to watch herons search for fish at Chinese Gardens, entering the Fair Grounds 5 blocks away. One block away is famous Froggy Bottoms Marsh. Find hidden resting logs for you to sit, gaze and escape, hear ducks splashing, and dragonflies fly, just around the corner. Redwing Blackbirds are a delight all summer long. Yes, you can hear the frogs singing in frog season, or view unusual plants, Witch Hazel bushes among birch trees and sedges year round.
A private neighborhood rental for those who seek calm, the ideal plantings encourage wildlife and you can listen to many birds: Chickadees, Flickers, hummingbirds, and stellar jays.
The yard is fenced and safe for canine companions. Few cars pass on a short street off the main road. Proud pet owners have been scrupulous in maintaining the idyllic surroundings. We look forward to meeting your exceedingly polite dogs of which you may bring as many as you wish.
This special property is rented to one family per month only. Writers and artists have flourished here as manuscripts were completed and art galleries filled.
We welcome you!
