Thank you for considering our cottage as your lodging choice. With only one cottage and both my husband and I the only ones operating it we will make your stay personal and special. Dave and I opened Olympic View in 2000. We never thought it would take off like it has. Don't get me wrong - it has been a lot of work but it has been fun for us meeting all our guests from all over the world. We have had engagements proposals here, anniversary and birthday celebrations, military homecomings, and so many special occasions it has been so fun to be able to share Olympic View Cottage with all our guests. We really enjoy sharing our special paradise tucked away on this quiet hillside. My husband has lived here his whole life and we just can't get away. Beginning and ending each day with this breathtaking view and quiet location is truly a blessing that we will never take for granted. Many times I find myself looking at the view and catching myself saying out loud 'WOW- this is just so beautiful!” It is truly amazing. Everyday the view is ever-changing with the sunrise and sunsets, the cool Puget Sound breeze, the storms that roll by and the boat and ferry traffic all day long. It is just awesome. We hope we can share our little paradise with you as you read through what we have to offer. And if we don't have something in the cottage we will most likely have it in our house for you. So you don't have to go out and buy anything. You are the only guest in our cottage and we are here to make sure your vacation is perfect! We'd love to meet you this year and you’ll see why it is so hard for us to ever move away from this special hidden paradise. Our best to you always - Eileen and Dave.

Wonderful Service, Great Accommodations, Convenient Location

We stayed here for 3 nights in Sept 2013. The cottage is beautiful, looks new and the views are spectacular. It was perfect for our first visit to the Pacific Northwest. Easy access to all Seattle has to offer, yet private and secluded. There are about 6-8 steep steps which my older husband who uses a cane found difficult, but once there the hot tub alleviated all his worries. Fresh fruit, eggs,pancake mix, pastries....all were there and replenished daily. Very private and comfortable. Hope to return soon!

We traveled to Olympic View Bed and Breakfast for our honeymoon, expecting a lot, and Dave and Eileen did not disappoint! Dave & Eileen were amazing hospitable! It is such a short drive from the airport, but we didn't hear a single plane during our entire stay! The cottage is kept extremely clean, and was well maintained throughout our stay! The bed was extremely comfortable! The cottage is plenty of space for two. The pastries and other deliciousness (like fresh fruit) that were left for us each day were amazing! The view from the deck, especially the hot tub, is unmatched. Despite Dave and Eileen's house being next door, we still had a lot of privacy, and felt completely comfortable on our honeymoon! It was a fantastic experience and we hope to be back soon!

“WOW and WOW”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 10 June 2013
I spent more days than usual but far less than I ultimately wanted to at Olympic View B&B. I cannot begin to describe how glorious this place is. From the tastefully furnished, well laid-out and super clean cottage, to the superb private deck with a massive hot tub, and finally this spectacular view. The bed is so comfortable that I had sweet dreams every night. My hosts, Eileen and Dave were so friendly, could not do enough for me, and yet they allowed me my privacy. Frankly, I wish I could afford to live here forever. I've stayed at many B&B's, but never one which supplies, not only breakfast items, but also a cupboard full of oils and seasonings, useful in the full kitchen, together with cheese, mini quiches, a variety of milk's (yet) and so many other things that there is no review space long enough to list everything. Eileen and Dave have done themselves proud. I look forward to returning and have already booked time there for February 2014.

Thanks for a memorable escape...

We arrived on a warm sunny Sunday in July. We had won an overnight here in a charity auction and were looking forward to a much needed break. This trip being the first since my wife was involved in an auto-collision last March.

We followed the GPS to the address but were not exactly sure we had arrived because they don't have any signs out due to privacy and such.

Dave came out as I was backing down the driveway greeted me by name and cheerfully told us that "the garage was ours". He offered to carry our bags but my male ego would not allow this, thank you very much.

He showed us to the cottage entrance, chatting the whole time as we did our initial walk through. The door was open to the deck area and it was very "Feng-Shui Happy". We got the complete tour along with instructions on how to use the Jacuzzi and the Do It Yourself breakfast provisions.

Eileen also came in and we made introductions. While we had never met Dave and Eileen before they made us quickly feel like friends. After more friendly chat we were left to our own devices and if we were to need anything we could just call. Meeting other family members was very friendly and pleasant.

Our initial impressions were very good. Everything is so impeccably clean and tidy. The view from the deck and hot tub is nothing less than spectacular and this is coming from a local who has hung out quite a bit in and around Burien, WA. We think you will find this little town a Gem as we have, but I digress.

What made the experience stand out for us, was how quiet it is there on the hill and how you can take in the "Million Dollar View" without craning your neck. At the table or in the hot-tub, it was just great. We got our stuff settled and "hit the town" for shopping and an early dinner, then a nice stroll down at Ed Munro Seahurst Park.

It was a warm day but it had started cooling down by the time we returned to the cottage. I put on a pot of java, a nice "Northwest Bold Roast" that they so kindly provided for us. Then it was time to fire up the Jacuzzi so we could watch the sunset from the hot tub, something we hadn't enjoyed in years. With the sun painting colors on the horizon and shadows across the mountain tops, it was truly memorable.

The plentiful breezes off of Puget Sound, really DO cool things off nicely. With the ceiling fan going and the windows and door open it was just perfect.

The bed was comfortable and

Mixing business with pleasure

We stayed here while my husband attended a conference at the Convention Center in Seattle. It was a great base for both my husband to get into the city and for me to occupy my time while he was at the conference as you are just 10-15 minutes from Downtown. The house itself is lovely and the views from our balcony were amazing. We were able to enjoy the sunsets over the Sound from the hot tub and enjoyed watching bald eagles fly around while we ate breakfast on the deck. Dave was absolutely fantastic and no wish was left unmet. We also loved the fact that the breakfast was self-catering because some mornings were up early and other we slept in, so we could eat when we felt like it and didn't have to worry about keeping to the innkeepers breakfast schedule. The variety on offer was great and to top things off, they did the dishes! We are already looking forward to a return trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. We welcome you both back to the cottage anytime of the year. The Pacific Northwest has the 4 seasons and our views are ever-changing. From the snow capped Olympic Mountain range, to the kite boarders on the Sound, and the amazing sunsets, there is always something interesting happening right in front of your eyes. We feel very blessed to live in our beautiful paradise and enjoy sharing it with our guests from around the world. Thank you again for sharing your experience. Sincerely, Dave and Eileen.
