We arrived after spending a busy week traveling around Vancouver Island, Guadra and Salt Springs Island thinking we would not find as lovely a place and location to stay, but were we ever wrong. After opening the door, we were welcomed by a gorgeous view of the Puget Sound through the open cottage windows, the soft lighting of the lamps in every room and soft music coming from the cable TV. The cottage is reminiscent of what you might think of an adorable "English cottage". There were the makings for a breakfast supplied for the next morning-Coffee, Tea, Eggs, Muffins, Oranges, Butter, and Orange Juice. The cottage is best for a single person or couple. More than that would be crowded in our opinion. It is outfitted to be able to cook quick and simple meals which we chose to do everyday except one, when we traveled up to visit Port Townsend. The area is residential/rural but it looks as though there is development happening a few miles away. There is a Safeway grocer and other stores a few miles away by car.
We enjoyed sitting out on the small porch or in the yard while reading. We observed a pileated woodpecker above us in one of the trees. There is a gray cat, "the manager" that often would come out to say hello and then settle under one of the bushes. We usually walked down to the rocky beach below at least once a day or took a hike thru the State Park which was next door. We loved observing the high and low tides during the day. The owners offer you the ability to use their 2 kayaks and provide lifesaving vests and aqua socks footwear. The surrounding area would be good for road biking.
The shower is on the small side, and the shower head is very different from what we are use to, but it does the job. There are books, games and binoculars available for use in the cottage. The TV is hooked up to cable and has the ability to play DVD's. All in all we had a wonderful visit and hope to return at another time. Thank you Barbara and Dick for the use of your cottage.
