“slow down and watch the water.”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We've been here several times before, but we usually come in late October.
This year we came up for Easter in Sequim, and found the weather in
April is just about the same as it is in October. We're from Southern California,
so we don't mind seeing a little precipitation occasionally, as it doesn't
happen at home much anymore.
We always try to stay in the San Juan suite, as the fireplace sort of adds to
the Pacific Northwest experience. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything
you need to cook meals (not cleaning up after yourself is not acceptable).
Also the barbeques out back can make for a real good time. We can sit at the
front table and watch the ships go by all day long. (go to vessesl tracker on
your tablet or laptop. You can watch the progess of the boats past your
window. It's a nice diversion from daily life!) The neighborhood is just so
quiet and tranquil, especially when you get straifed by a Bald Eagle looking
for dinner by the water at dusk!
Papa Crab and Mrs K. (AKA, John and Karin), are just about the nicest
people around. They are both a trove of local knowledge, and will happily
advise you on anything from driving up to Hurricane Ridge, to eating at any
of the local restaurants. (We keep finding awesome new places that are low-
key, casual, and with a home spirit) We just love the slow-paced lifestyle
up here. It is just a great place to hang for four or ten days.
Every time I ask John what he wants for the place, He laughs at me!
John, it's not a joke! We love your place, and don't stay anywhere else.

We've stayed at Dungeness Bay Cottages a number of times before, and this visit was wonderful, as always. Comfortable accommodations, moderately priced, outstanding views. Deer, California Quail, and Bald Eagles outside the front door.

Room Tip: We prefer either of the 2 suites for the bedroom separate from the main living space.

Enjoyed the cottages very much. Loved waking up and almost being in the straight. Clean and cozy.. Only complaint is it smelt a little musty. I never said anything and could of got some smell good stuff. They Im sure would of taken care of it if we asked. Also it's very quite. Will stay again when we come back...

Room Tip: Get the larger unit. Worth the money and room...

My husband and I returned today from a 3 day weekend in Sequim. This was our first, but not last, time staying at the Dungeness Bay Cottages. The cottages are very clean and well-maintained. Children and pets are not allowed which isn't an issue for us. There is nothing fancy about the cottages but they have everything that we needed or wanted in a place to stay. Since the cottages have an open floor plan with only the bathroom being enclosed we had a view of both the Dungeness Spit and Strait of Juan de Fuca from the picture window and the snow-capped Cascade Mountain range from the kitchen. It was so restful and beautiful. Karin and John, the owners are very friendly and lovely people. I have stayed before at a property down the road and prefer this hands down. And there is a private beach just across the street for an instant walk on the beach. Sequim is a wonderful place to visit and we very much enjoyed our stay at these cottages.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cottage #2 which had a view of both Dungeness Spit and the Strait of Juan de Fuca with...

Children are welcome here! They have lots of fun exploring the beach right in front of your door and creating some new experiences while staying here at the Dungeness Bay Cottages! Lots to see and do for everyone, tidepools at low tide, to hiking with the deer in the mountains! Some of our accommodations here are expressly reserved for just for two persons, and one of them could absolutely be that lucky kid! .....Mr. Crab

We had a very quiet 3-day weekend in Cottage #2, Oceanview, before Thanksgiving. I definitely recommend it for a relaxing getaway. We had good views of Dungeness Spit and the lighthouse and watched boats, cargo ships, and barges pass by each day. The kitchen was nicely equipped and had everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and while the bathroom was small it was adequate for us.

Cottages 2, 3, 4 & 5 are all similarly appointed. There are two suites in the east building along with the office. Karin and John were friendly and helpful with recommendations for restaurants and how to get to the parking area for the spit access. Hint: it is through the park and campground area.

Sequim is one of the cleanest coastal towns we have seen. Everything was well maintained and people were friendly everywhere we went. Definitely try the Sunshine Cafe. The servings are so large you can share lunch.

Room Tip: The suites and cottages face north with the San Juan and Lighthouse (#1) Suites on the east end then...

My husband and I booked a long weekend here to unwind after a hectic summer. We were extremely pleased with what we received at this price point: a comfortable room with an unmatched view of the spit and the strait beyond. The rooms are slightly dated but entirely adequate, comfortable, and well-equipped. The owners are very gracious, accommodating people who enthusiastically share their wide knowledge of the area's attractions. They were very helpful with our restaurant selection process (Hint: Don't miss the Alder Wood Bistro!). The cottages were conveniently located for hiking the Dungeness Spit and accessing Olympic National Park's Hurricane Ridge. Our only regret is that we didn't book more time here to just enjoy being on the property. We intend to return next summer and do just that!

This is a great cottage rental right across the scenic roadway with fantastic views all around. Very serene surroundings (we visited in early October) with ocean view looking out the main windows, and pastoral setting with cows right behind us. Super clean and all appointed. Host was professional and very helpful. Covered carport for your ride. Bathroom a bit of a tight squeeze, but that's part of the charm! Definitely recommend and will return.
