About the property
- Cottage1000 sqft
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay2 - 3 nights
A unique and atmospheric cottage on private surroundings right on the water. You have it all and all to yourselves. Not just a "view" or shared/public beach "access". No noisy road between you and the beach. No other residents or vacationers on the property. The low bank private beach is all yours, just a few steps away for lounging, exploring tide pools, launching your kayak or, for the intrepid, even swimming/snorkeling. You immerse yourself in original pine paneling woodwork, nautical decor, nothing like many rentals which are commonly just normal buildings and interiors transported to the waterfront. This is post card material. Cozy, remote but still close to Seattle. Back-road cycling and leisurely walks are right out the back door. Mt. Rainier looms as you sip a glass of wine on the deck, on a wind-protected alcove or from the living room through large view windows. Or take a break in the sun and hide out on the calm side patio. Near a forest preserve that not only makes the drive in akin to something seen on the Olympic Peninsula but is also available for short hikes as if you were miles and hours away. More than 180 degree water view of all manner of boats and sea life. Fully equipped kitchen. Shower/tub. Sleeps 4 in two bedrooms with two twins and a queen (5 max. with sofa) About 1000 sq. ft. with large, open living area and view windows, dining space, kitchen, bathroom and 2 bedrooms.

The beach cottage was quite quaint and offered a wonderful place to stay.
Gordon was great to deal with and was available for anything we may have wanted.
The view off the deck couldn't have been better.
If you are searching for a place that is off the beaten path and super quiet this is it.
nice place with a very quiet and relaxed setting, great coastal views, very friendly owner
Cozy, beautiful views, and relaxing.
Relaxing to watch the ferry traffic from livingroom and deck with perfect views. We enjoyed the sea lions and combing the small private beach. Though there are neighbors it feels very private. Cottage is cozy and comfortable and has everything you need. We will be back!
Enjoy the calm serenity of beach life.
We enjoyed staying in the unique home on the beach, it seemed secluded, yet we were minutes from town. Lucky for us a pod of Orcas visited while we were staying there. All amenities required were there, the owner would periodically ask if there was anything else we needed.
Relaxation at it's best!
If you are looking for a calm, quiet and relaxing this is the place for you! This cottage is a clean, inviting, quaint little piece of paradise right on the water. Seattle is accessible by ferry or drive via Tacoma. You should plan on a 90 minute trip either way which was fine by us as the noisy city was just far enough away. There were four of us on this trip and there was plenty of room for the four of us. Everything that you need is there. Gordon was available for anything that we needed and was a very gracious host. We will definitely be back!
Awesome view property
We loved our stay at this property. The weather was awesome which made it even more special. The house was very clean and well stocked with everything needed. You can't beat the views, we would definitely book a stay here again. Thank you Gordon!!
