Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

This cute country cottage is located on Shincke Road in Olympia, Washington. The cottage is located only a few miles from town, but it is in a beautiful rural location with amazing access to the Chehalis Western Trail.

The 22 mile Chehalis Western Trail runs north-south through Thurston County and connects to the Yelm-Tenino Trail.

Be sure to bring your walking/running shoes or your bikes.

This cottage is a great place to stay when in town for events held at the Capitol, St. Martin's University or the Evergreen State College.

The cottage is clean and bright with a full kitchen, bathroom, vaulted ceilings, and skylights. There is a king sized bed and a couch that folds into a twin bed.

There is easy pull through parking with room for a trailer or RV.

Our owner-occupied residence is next door so if you have questions or concerns, we are easily reachable.

About Peter or Bonnie

Our family loves living in Olympia. This is where I was born and the majority of my family resides here. We returned to Olympia after spending time teaching overseas and in Alaska. It is a wonderful place to call home.

Peter or Bonnie purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Peter or Bonnie chose Puget Sound South

We purchased this property in 2009. We live on the same parcel as the cottage in a large white 90 year old farm house. We knew this property was for us because of its rural, but close to town location.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the access we have to the Chehalis Western Trail and the pastoral views.

Comfy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We were very comfortable in this little cottage. Big King Size bed and plenty of space. An added bonus is Lily the dog who came to the front door both days to ask for a dog bone.

Private Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was in a good location and had everything we needed for our stay. It was clean, nice large bed, plenty of blankets. We had a little difficulty finding it when we first arrived. But it was late at night, raining and it was the first time we had been to Olympia. The directions were good, we just had a hard time seeing all the landmarks and signs in the dark and rain. We would stay there again if we come back.

Cute, Quiet and Roomy!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute and well appointed cottage in the county! Super comfy bed and luxurious linens, and a roomy bathroom. The kitchen is stocked with every possible appliance and utensil. The grounds are farmy, quiet and the most convenient parking ever.

Quick trip to anywhere in the Olympia area. Will definitely return for next year's K9 Nose Work seminar at the Thurston County Fairgrounds.

Very nice place to stay - country setting but still close to town.

  • 5 of 5

Nice cottage located on the same property as the owners house. Well kept and perfect for a couple. Pete made some good recommendations for hiking and seems knowledgeable about the area. My only suggestion is a larger refrigerator. good place to park and we felt like the whole area was very secure. We would stay there again!
