About the property

Studio cottage with queen bed, bath w/shower, sitting area, and partial kitchen

Rustic and rural on the outside, comfortable and lovely on the inside, this studio cottage includes a comfy queen bed, a bath with shower, a partial kitchen alcove, and an enclosed porch to enjoy the water view and wildlife..... even on a stormy day!

An over-the-water deck invites you to sit and relax, surrounded by the water's lapping waves. Or walk down the steps to the private beach and search for a variety of fun seashore finds!

Set in a park-like atmosphere, enjoy strolling through the property's acre-plus of gardens. The landscape is backed by forest on one side, and Discovery Bay on the other. Nature at its best!

Mini fridge, microwave, coffee and coffee pot are included. There is no cooking stove. Owner, who lives on the property, will be happy to share her kitchen at no extra charge if you would like to cook a meal (you get to help clean up, tho!).

Features also include Wi-Fi, DVD movies (no TV), maps and recreation brochures, and dining-out suggestions.

About Kathy Case

I'm an avid gardener.....a gardening 'Geek', I believe it's called! I lived in Seattle until age 15, then moved with my family to Port Townsend. After graduating in 1967, I moved back to the city. As I got older, I dreamed of moving back to this area, longing for a slower, and more beautiful, environment. Fortunately, it happened, and I now enjoy having my family, who have grown up in this area, come for holidays and/or play times on the beach. Each Easter since the year 2000, we have an egg hunt on the large grounds, and have been lucky enough to dodge the rain every year but one. This area has only 18 inches average of rainfall per year.....much less than the city!

Kathy Case purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Kathy Case chose Port Townsend

This property was passed down to me, and I truly appreciate living here. As well as living right here in the middle of nature between Port Townsend and Sequim, it is easy to enjoy the many holiday and festival celebrations these towns celebrate every year. I especially love the holiday teas at Port Townsend's Victorian mansions. Hood Canal is also close by, and I especially like to visit Mt. actually has a view of Seattle!

What makes this cottage unique

My home, and the vacation studio, is located less than 10 feet from the water's edge. Facing west, there are beautiful sunsets as well as stormy scenes, a wide variety of cloud formations, fog, rainbows, moon and stars, and yes, sometimes just a moody gray atmosphere.......but even that is romantic! And never boring.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a lovely time and really enjoyed your seaside cabin. You do a really good job. Thanks for the offer to hang out longer on Sunday. We went to the Dungeness Spit and had a beautiful exhilarating walk with a rainbow that lasted the entire time!

Cute cottage, beautiful grounds!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights and absolutely loved our time here. We walked the rocky beach both days and found all sorts of goodies! The grounds are absolutely beautiful, Kathy has spent a lot of time tending the flowers and gardens, and it definitely shows! We loved walking the grounds and beach with our morning coffee. Short drive to Port Townsend and we also drove to ONP while we were there. There's plenty of other places to stay, but this cannot be passed up if you're looking for peace, tranquility or beauty! (And the bed is comfy too!!!!) Thanks Kathy for the great place to stay and for the coffee too! If we ever come back to the area, we would definitely stay again!!!

Owner's Response: You two are a great couple, and it is a pleasure to know how much you enjoyed seeing the beauty that the Olympic Peninsula has to offer! Maybe some day I will tour "your side" of the states. I hear it is beautiful also. Thanks so much for the compliments! It's always good to know that my efforts helped make your trip a good one.

Cute place

  • 4 of 5

Nice stay in this little room so close to the water it was like being in a house boat. Very quiet gorgeous view

I did have to make sure all my food was ready for the microwave because there wasn’t much room for prep. There was a coffe pot but since I only drink tea I brought my own electric tea kettle. Loved walking around the yard looking at emerging flowers

Quaint, spotless and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, quiet cottage on the water, away from the hustle and bustle of town. Exceptionally clean and well equipped for those needing just a place to kick back and sleep. No kitchen, but microwave, fridge and coffee pot, plus coffee, tea bags, sugar and 1/2 & 1/2. No TV, but DVD player and a variety of movie choices and wi-fi. Perfect for relaxing and resting up for the next day's activities.

Quaint and Serene Location

  • 5 of 5

This place was very peaceful and cozy. It is perfect for relaxing, but it is only 15 minutes, or so, away from Port Townsend which is perfect. It has all the amenities you need.
