Property description

Rustic and rural on the outside, comfortable and lovely on the inside, this studio cottage includes a new 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Port Townsend, WA, USA:
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. Walker......it actually has a view of Seattle!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
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.
