About Kim Rafferty
We have lived in Port Townsend for over 20 years and raised our family here. We have travelled the world and believe that Port Townsend is one of the finest spots on earth...a great community surrounded by incredible beauty.
Kim Rafferty purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Kim Rafferty chose Port Townsend
We built this house with the intention that our son with Down Syndrome would make it his home. But being the social character that he is, he lives with a group of his friends in a group home (1% of the rental fee is contributed to the non-profit, Olympic Neighbors, www.olympicneighbors.org that runs the home). The house is private but close to everything one needs.
What makes this Cottage unique
Lots of trails close by that are good for walking or bicycling. It is quiet and peaceful with incredible night sky viewing on clear nights.

Perfect home for us as well as location.
Lovely home in gardens. Port Townsend is friendly town with lots of unique shops and good restaurants. Easy ferry connection to Whidbey Island. Short drive to mountains and ferry to Victoria.
Wonderfully appointed house, felt like a well loved home. Super cute.
Walking trails right out the door. Beautiful setting in the trees. Radiant floor heat! Composte, recycling, green products for dish washing and clothes. The place was perfect. Really nice people too.
Exceptional Cottage, Accomodating Hosts
We spent the month of June in this well designed, comfortable cottage. The aesthetics of the backyard forested setting exceeded our expectations.
As older but active seniors, Port Townsend offered many easy and enjoyable walking opportunities, Fort Worden being the best example. We enjoyed the nautical views of the downtown area and the many cafes available.
Olympic National Park is nearby for more serious hikers. The recreational opportunities in this area are many to say the least, with an outstanding cottage to return to at the end of the day. Thank you Kim and Bob for offering this accommodation.

Excellent medium-term stay in Port Townsend
We were lucky to have stayed at Bob and Kim's cottage for some five weeks recently. Their compact but surprisingly spacious home is comfy, cozy, clean, quiet and well-equipped. Though the house is located within the city limits of Port Townsend, it can feel like a cabin in the woods. You can walk or bike miles in any direction and hardly have to cross a road. Always made to feel welcome, we felt more like neighbors than short-term tenants. Bravo, and thank you!
Beautiful Bird House!
We could not have been happier here. The Owners are wonderfully hospitable and gracious. The home is beautifully outfitted and provides a terrific spot to unwind and commune with nature. My husband and I would go back in a minute and will refer our friends!
Perfect location to relax.
We spent a wonderful three weeks here. The setting is peaceful, the cottage is immaculate and well-appointed. The radiant heating was so welcome on chilly days. We loved the beautiful gardens and watching the birds and squirrels. The owners were very hospitable.
