Having been to Seattle numerous times in the past 13 years I was looking for a slightly different vacation, and I can honestly say this experience was beyond my expectations. Convenient to major highways, minutes from Sea-Tac and a short distance from downtown Seattle, easy to find with Dave and Eileen's directions and yet...so far removed from the hustle and bustle as to be nearly magical. This quiet seemingly secluded cottage nurtured my soul with it's views of Elliot Bay, Puget Sound and it's island and the Olympic Mountains backlit by the setting sun. I spent every breakfast on the deck enjoying the solitude and the view and ws there for many of the sunsets as well. Well maintained with a relaxing palette it's hard not to spend all ones time at the cottage. Still, had time to go hikiing on the Olympic Penisula, do the salmon bake at Tillicum Village, ride the new Ferris wheel at Pier 54 and generally bask in the stunning July weather. The notebook of local options is fabulous and I highly recommend the short walk to Three Tree Beach along the Indian Trail + a meal at the Tin Room and Cafe 909.. Both were recommended by Eileen who never steered me wrong. I'd never rented from an internet ad before but I have been telling everyone about this and would happily stay here again. Clean and airy... one of the nicest B&B's I've stayed in. Although it would make a great romantic getaway, I greatly enjoyed it as a single female traveler and look forward to returning on my visit to Seattle.
