“My new favorite 'Happy Place'”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We're so fortunate we found this hidden gem, what a great experience! The cottage is private, the view from the hot tub on the deck is picture postcard perfect and you feel like you're in a quiet relaxing part of the world, yet only minutes from downtown Seattle. Eileen & Dave were friendly, helpful and loved the fresh fruits and pastries provided daily. Thoroughly enjoyed every detail, and can't wait to return again and again.

Thank you so much for you kind review. We would be happy to have you back anytime of the year. The seasons are so beautiful to watch from the hot tub. Right now we are heading into summer and the sunsets over the Olympic Mountain range are amazing. Since we are so close to the water we get the cool Puget Sound breeze so it is never super hot. Check out our pictures that we post on Instagram. Hope to see you soon.

I am a return traveller to Eileen and David's truly superb B&B. My second stay was in March 2014. I didn't think they could improve on what I experienced last May/June but they managed it. They upgraded the TV (which didn't need upgrading in my opinion) AND they added Netflix which gives you a HUGE assortment of movies to enjoy. The bed was just as fabulously comfortable as previously, and the supplies of food, oils, vinegars, spices etc etc were just as lavish. There was certainly no need to try and change the absolutely magnificent view of Puget Sound and the massive on-deck (private deck) spa bath, with THAT VIEW makes one feel like "the rich and famous". I cannot recommend this place or it's hosts highly enough. In the words of the famous Arnie "I'LL BE BACK" !!

Thank you for such a kind review. We are so happy to have you back in the cottage again and again. The view will always be here for you as you experienced in the summer and now the winter. From the glorious sunsets to the beauty of the snow capped Olympic Mountain range. As always- we look froward to your return visit! Dave and Eileen

The "cottage" was our home-base for a week long Christmas visit and it was heaven! Quiet & oh-so-comfortable plus a vast array of foods that were stocked in our kitchen for daily breakfasts including some yummy pastries and fancy fresh fruit cups. A quick and easy distance to Sea-Tac and the light rail station for downtown exploring and the eclectic array of wonderful restaurants in Burien were a delight. Dave & Eileen had lots of great dining suggestions that were delicious discoveries. There were even Christmas lights decorating the deck around our private hot tub, which gave us a great place to watch for Santa Claus on a star-filled Christmas Eve. A true treat. Lovely neighborhood, beautiful views and the cottage is stocked with every possible amenity. Cozy robes, umbrellas, wine glasses, kitchen gadgets and even the ingredients and recipes for home-made pancakes! I hope we can schedule a return visit.

Thank you so much for you kind review. We are so happy you were able to enjoy the cottage during your Christmas holiday. We love this area we live in and are happy we can share it with others from around the world anytime of the year. We are fortunate to be minutes away from many fabulous family owned restaurants and bars. Lots of choices, their menus are exquisite, and the parking is free!
We wish you a happy and safe New Year and look forward to having you back in the future!

We stayed at this cottage for a full week while visiting all the sights around Seattle and outlying areas. We couldn't have found a better place! It is conveniently located allowing us to travel as far as the Hoh rain forest west, Mt. Ranier south and Cascade Mountains east. Just a few minutes to downtown Seattle and Pikes Market. After a day of activity we were able to come back to a beautiful view, a glass of vino on the deck, a great hot tub, and comfortable recliners. The only way we knew the hosts were around was the wonderful breakfast food left for us each day. Would definitely recommend this place!

Thank you so much for your kind review. We were so happy you enjoyed your stay (despite the week of rain). The hot tub was a perfect place to relax after all your adventurous days. You did a lot and we are so happy to have met you both and that you choose Olympic View Cottage for your vacation accommodations. Come back and see us!

Our best to you always!

This place was amazing and the location is priceless! My spouse and I stayed at the B&B for three days, I wanted the weekend but they where all booked. A short walk from the cabin is a trail that runs along the ridge and down to the shores of Puget Sound, the view where breath taking and beautiful! We ran the trail in the morning for exercise and walked it in the evening for a romantic relaxation.

We where in and out a lot due to the short drive to downtown and surprisingly very little traffic due to their location. When we where gone they tidied things up and restocked the essentials. They provided robes and towels for the hot tub, which is located on the deck with one of the most peaceful and beautiful view I have ever taken in. They offered their freezer for us when we returned with salmi we had caught and offered to fillet it and prepare it for us.

They are a very polite and welcoming family even there children where polite and willing to help. This was our first time at a B&B and it was very pleasant! I would like to thank you for sharing your place with us and the hospitality you and your family offered.

Thank you so much for the kind review. We are so happy you were able to relax in the cottage, enjoy the hot tub, and take in some of our beautiful nature walks. Plus- see the city! All in 3 short days. There is so much more to see and do in Seattle and the Greater Pacific Northwest so you will have to come back. We feel so blessed to live here and are so happy we can share our little piece of heaven with wonderful guests like you. Our home is yours and we hope to see you again very soon.

The cottage is great....if you are planning a visit to the Pacific Northwest, make this your first stop! My husband and I very much enjoyed our 3-day stay at Olympic View B&B in early Sept 2013. He is NOT fan of B&B's and prefers hotels...but by the end of our stay he had been converted! Everything you could need (and much more) is provided. It is about 20 minutes into Seattle by car, but don't let that deter you -- it is well worth the drive to have this place to come back to. Beautiful views!!

This B & B has all the special touches and more. This setting is all you need for the perfect get away. From the 'foodies' that are stocked in your refrigerator every day and sometimes twice to the magnificent sunset from the hot tub. We enjoyed a week touring Seattle, the sweet little town of Burien and Mount Rainier. We cooked on the BBQ gas grill a few times enjoying a romantic dinner from the balcony overlooking Puget Sound to celebrate our 46th Wedding Anniversary. The cottage is very comfortable, quiet and clean. What more could we have imagined? We hope to visit Olympic View again from Hilton Head, SC. Thanks again to Dave and Eileen for this little piece of paradise.

Bill and Maureen, Thank you so much for your kind review. It was a delight to have you both and we are so happy you choose Olympic View Cottage for your 46th Anniversary. We went to Mount Rainier a few days after you and the wild flowers were beautiful. You picked a perfect time to come to Seattle. Our little town has lots of great restaurants and we are happy you got to enjoy all of them as well as many romantic dinners in the cottage. We hope to see you again soon for many more anniversaries to come. All our best! Dave, Eileen, and kids.
