This private, cozy cottage is perched on a hillside offering mountain and pastoral views to the west, with a private, custom waterfall bath and queen bed. There are 5 acres of mountain and sea views, extensive Japanese gardens, ponds, fir and cedar groves. This is a peaceful place for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and furry friends (pets). National Forest and Park trails are ten minutes away.
The cottage is set on a hillside with beautiful westward views of the Olympic mountains. The setting is private and quiet, with guest access to the extensive gardens, ponds and water features. The cottage is 10' X 20' including the private bath. One entire wall of the cottage is glass with private views and a deck that wraps around three sides. There is an outside private and heated shower on the front deck. Inside there are warm wood floors and a custom bath that features a waterfall shower with stone from the local river. The cottage has cedar shingles and a metal roof, and is well insulated for heating and cooling. I have recently added a new waist-high fridge with freezer and microwave for my guests convenience. Guests still have access to the main house kitchen for cooking and storing food, but this should provide added independence. While individual guests and couples have found the cottage to have more than sufficient space, if you are considering bringing your dog, you may want to reconsider because of space considerations. I've had one guest who found this an issue with her large pet dog.
The cottage sits apart from the main residence and has a private access and parking area. The cottage literally sits amidst the Douglas Fir, cedar and maple trees. While the cottage sits apart from the main house, guests have only to walk a few steps to the kitchen and laundry facilities.

I am available to answer questions about the area and will make guests breakfast for one morning during their stay if they desire. Guests are welcome to wander the grounds on their own, and I am happy to orient them to the property - beautiful walks begin at the end of the driveway.
This area is rich in natural beauty and the cottage is literally a 10 minute drive to National Park and Forest trails, as well as kayaking and canoeing. The town of Quilcene, while small, offers excellent food and dining. The quaint and historic town of Port Townsend is a half hour drive away offering excellent food, shopping, breweries and vineyards.
Visiting pets, once approved, must remain with owner at all times, be up to date on all health requirements, and not left alone in the cottage during the stay.
I have retired from park ranger, Navy captain, corporate, non-profit and political life. I am a lover of sailing, nature and music. I have moved to the Pacific Northwest to be close to all of these things - and I am. The quiet beauty here is unsurpassed. I am grateful to be here.
