About Dave and Eileen Schmidt

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 Cottage in 2000. We never thought it would take off like it has. It has been fun for us meeting all our guests from all over the world. We have had a lot of honeymoons celebrated at Olympic Cottage, several engagement proposals throughout the years and have had the couples come back for their anniversaries. From birthdays to military homecomings and so many other special occasions celebrated in the Cottage. It has been so fun to be able to share Olympic View Cottage with all our guests for all these memorable occasions. 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 -

Guestbook comments from the owner

I apologize for the delay, but could not let the opportunity pass to let you know about the wonderful experience I had while at your cottage. Last weekend my boyfriend and I booked a stay with you for our anniversary. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing the time we had there was. From the view, to the privacy, to the unique amenities of your kitchen and being able to add an intimate touch to our meals by cooking for ourselves and having private, relaxing dinners, lunches AND breakfasts. This, to me, surpassed any traditional bed and breakfast in quality and service in more ways than I have time to elaborate on. I wanted to say thank you from the both of us for not only providing outstanding, quality service…but for giving us an experience and a memory.

Beautiful cottage overlooking Puget Sound!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fabulous time staying at Olympic View Cottage! Dave and Eileen Schmidt were wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed!

Olympic View Cottage was quaint, very clean, well maintained, and private! If you are looking for a quiet place to get out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this cottage is the place. We spent many hours on the patio enjoying the view of Puget Sound and the amazing sunsets. The cottage is also close to downtown Seattle and state parks around the area - we shopped, ate fantastic food, visited key areas in Seattle (Pikes Market, Space Needle, etc) and hiked Rattlesnake Ledge - all within 20-45 minutes of the cottage.

Thanks to our great hosts! We hope to return in the future!

We stayed for three nights and wish we had been able to stay longer. The view is amazing - perfect for watching the sunset. The cottage is very comfortably furnished. The owners were very helpful while at the same time giving us privacy. By far the best place I've rented through VRBO.

My husband and I had the most relaxing and romantic week at this beautiful cottage! It was so nice to not only have this stunning view to look at. But the hot tub was the icing on the cake! Close to all the action, yet such a beautiful peaceful place to get away! And Dave and Eileen are so sweet and very helpful to your needs! Thank you so much for everything and we sure hope to come back and stay again one day soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review. We are so happy you had a relaxing week at the cottage and that the hot tub was perfect for you. We do love our central location. Close enough to the city yet far enough away to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. You guys were awesome guests and we are so happy you choose Olympic View Cottage for you vacation get-away. All our best! Dave ad Eileen Schmidt

Lovely views and extremely knowledgeable and friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very well kept and had an incredible view. The owners had books and tons of brochures of things to do. Although we had our own itineraries we did add more activities from their information.

The sun in July comes up early and lasts till 9pm so we enjoyed the long sunny days and views!

If heading up to the downtown Seattle area we found it quite congested so just allow ample time. It was nice to "escape" the hustle and bustle and come back to the cottage every evening.

Only have one little suggestion but not a biggie......we like to cook and the Teflon pans in the kitchen probably need to be replaced. I believe we were looking for a cookie sheet too but used the broiler tray.

The grill was awesome and very clean!

Lots of great movies to watch too!

I give it 5 stars!!

As yo know there is so much to do here in the Pacific Northwest so we look forward to your return visit someday. Best Regards, Dave and Eileen Schmidt

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I only had two nights at the cottage but loved every minute. We really liked being in a quiet neighborhood outside of Seattle. Our plan was to spend a day in the city, but loved it here so much just stayed close by. We felt like locals having coffee in downtown Burien and dinner at the marina in Des Moines. We saw a couple baby harp seals resting on the beach near Alki Point. Some marine mammal volunteers had them roped off to keep people away. Great to see. We will go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your sweet review. We are so happy you found us and that your two day stay was just what you needed. We do live in a great little town with lots of great restaurants and bar, shops, and great place to walk too! I am glad you enjoyed Alki Point as well. A must see travel destination that you really do not know about unless you ask. We look forward to a return stay from you anytime of the year!

Stunning views and fabulous cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Olympic View Cottage for a week in July and wished we could have stayed longer! The cottage and the view are spectacular! Puget Sound is visible from the kitchen, living room, bedroom, and deck. We loved spending time on the deck...relaxing, grilling, eating, and soaking in the hot tub, all while enjoying the view. Have I mentioned how breathtaking the view is?! The grounds of the cottage are lovely. The beach is just a quick walk away.The owners, Dave and Eileen, thought of absolutely everything to make our stay perfect! The beautiful cottage kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, spices...everything you need to cook or grill! The living room has two comfortable chairs and a couch. We enjoyed watching movies in the evening from their DVD collection. The king size bed was pure luxury! The sheets are AMAZING!!! My husband insists I find out where Dave and Eileen got them and buy them for our home! Dave and Eileen truly are perfect hosts. We had all the privacy we needed, but they were just steps away when we needed advice on sightseeing, restaurants, etc. They do all the little things to make your stay special, such as fresh flowers on the table, a binder complete with things to do, places to eat, etc. If you are looking for a centrally located place to stay while exploring Seattle, look no further! Olympic View Cottage is paradise!
