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!

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 Olympic Peninsula & Pacific Coast

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!

Great place for a weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

Great location- you are close enough to go to Sequim, port Angeles and port Townsend all in a day. Loved the view.

Perfect little cottage to use as a writers retreat/home base.

Loved my stay! Kathy was super helpful and not intrusive. I had everything I needed for my retreat and then some. The beach is lovely, the view is breath taking and the cottage is comfortable. Well worth it!

Serene Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend stay at Kathy's Place!! The location is really amazing--right on the water--we enjoyed breakfast on our above water porch and seeing nature right from our front door. We took our kayaks up and down the bay, which was really wonderful. We saw sea otters, seals, and lots of birds! The location is a great place to both get away from everything, as well as venture into nearby Port Townsend and take in everything the town has to offer. It is a great place for the price and what it offers. It would be nice to have more of a kitchen, but this is a simple cottage and its really great for the price! You can't beat being that close to the water. We would love to come again! Kathy was out of town when we stayed, but we hope to meet her in the future. Very accommodating!!

Owner's Response: The thank you note was great, but now a review is even better, and totally unexpected. So happy you enjoyed your stay! The cottage was well taken care of, and I appreciate it. I would have liked to meet both of you, too. You are welcome back anytime, so maybe we will eventually meet! Thanks again, Kathy

Peaceful and pristine! Loved being able to beachcomb during lowtide. Adoreable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Kathy's Place is perfectly situated between a quiet rural road and Discovery Bay. It was a breath of fresh air. The cottage is small, but was very comfortable for the two of us. We loved the sitting spaces outside as well as the comfort inside. There is limited space, (no stove and 1 closet for.clothes), but if you're looking for a sweet sleep, while having equal access to Port Townsend and Sequim, Kathy's Place is one of our favorites.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay here, and that some low tides were out during the daytime. In the winter months, they are usually at night. I hope your search was a success! Please contact me if you move to this area some day as it would be fun to see you both again! Thanks again, Kathy

Tranquil and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and spent a lot of time bundled up on the deck taking in nature. We saw seals and what we think were eagles. It was amazing. The studio is small but totally great for my husband and me. I wouldn't be comfortable in such a cozy space with someone else though. The studio was very clean and inviting. The bedding was snuggly and the view was shockingly great. My husband delighted in measuring the tide levels too. Of the seven steps of the deck, the bottom two are submerged at high tide. Incredible.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a wonderful review. As always, I am so happy when I know my guests have had a great experience! That probably was a bald eagle you saw....they are out right now. Also, late winter is the best time to see the winter ducks that visit form Alaska. Sounds like the wildlife put on a good show for you! Sorry we didn't meet. Through our phone converstaions, I can tell you are a kind, considerate couple. Perhaps we will meet some day. Thanks again, Kathy

A nice place for a long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was the perfect host, providing attention when needed, but also giving us our privacy.

The guest house is very warm and accommodating.

The house is a very easy drive to Port Townsend with ferries, restaurants, and shops.

We would definitely consider staying here on our next trip to the Pacific NW.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the complimentary review! You live in a state with no ocean bordering it. I'm glad you were able to experience the ever-changing wonders of Disco Bay, and the ocean on your side trips. And Port Townsend is such a great town, surrounded by water. Glad you liked it! You were great guests, and are welcome back anytime!
