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.

Serene , unbelievable view, wonderful private cottage

  • 5 of 5

We chose Olympic View cottage to spend the last two nights of our honeymoon in Washington. We absolutely loved it and didn't want to leave. We spent the first four nights in Seattle downtown so we could walk to everything and I could show my husband the city. We regretted not cutting that short a few nights and booking the cottage for longer. The cottage itself is darling it's in a very wooded area you fee like you are up in the trees.

When you are on the road there you drop out of the town Burien and into the trees on the side of the mountain. You wind through a beautiful wooded community until you go up the private drive to this home. The tress and landscaping are wonderful You can sit on the deck just enjoying the view and the sounds of the birds in the trees. We relaxed in the hot tub , cooked, took a walk to the beach. The atmosphere was perfect - Waking up you see the bay through the pines from the bed. We are from Utah, we love our state but there is just nothing that compares to this. Being in the dense green flowering mountainside and seeing / smelling the sea. Wow.

Also - the drive from the airport is short and easy. It's also just through a couple of neighborhoods to get back into the Burien area where there's restaurants stores etc. We ordered delivery because we didn't want to leave. :)

Owner's Response: Thank you Lori. We are so happy you enjoyed our area and enjoyed the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I wished you would have seen the bald eagles flying around when you were here. Next time. We do love our location too. Close to Seattle but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city - and the traffic. And only 8 minutes to Sea Tac airport. We look forward to another visit from you soon!. All our best - The Schmidt's

What a wonderful second honeymoon!!

  • 5 of 5

Looking to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. What we most needed was a huge amount of rest and relaxation and massive doses of “us” time. This is THE perfect spot. Relaxing each evening with a fantastic sunset over the mountains, and waking up to a fresh breakfast clandestinely placed in our kitchen while we were out exploring the day before. Oh, did I mention enjoying that breakfast and coffee followed by a dip in the Jacuzzi on the deck (all while staring at a beautiful view of the Puget Sound and mountain range)? WE LOVED THIS PLACE. #bestvacationever

Very Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 3 night stay for our anniversary. The view was wonderful and the breakfast goodies were delicious. We especially enjoyed the bed, it's not all that easy to find a good bed in a vacation rental, but this one was amazing - I've got to find out where those sheets came from!! It is definitely a little off the beaten path, but we enjoyed that, it allowed us to see a little more of the area and we were able to use Uber as needed. It is definitely an open concept feel, more of a large suite like you might find at an upper end hotel, but again this was okay for us. Great place for couples.

Perfectly Private & Gorgeous Waterview from Hottub

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to surprise my husband for our 11 year anniversary and Olympic View Bed & Breakfast did not disappoint AT ALL. It had everything we needed from privacy & amenities to an amazing water-view hot tub in the rain.

Dave called to make sure they would be around when we checked in and had no complaints to us coming in @ 9:30pm. He was super friendly and showed us everything we needed and then gave us privacy to get settled in.

The bed was super comfy, shower was amazing, tv was nice for while we were in the cottage.. Hot tub was amazing to come back to every night after a long day of shopping & enjoying the city :) And we really enjoyed it on the nights it rained.

The cottage has a gorgeous waterview that you can see from inside or out on the private porch.. The privacy here is actually very remarkable. You were clearly in a neighborhood yet it did not feel like it. You could sit out on the porch & enjoy the waterview of the Sound and not see any houses nearby.

The breakfast was fun, Dave & Eileen left cut up fruit in parfait cups with fresh pastries & bread every day while we were out & cleaned up our dishes & the cottage. There were plenty of eggs, milk and other ingredients to make your own breakfast, which my husband loves doing anyways. :) It was very nice and not what *i think* B&Bs are normally like... I had always avoided them in the past as we like our privacy.

The cats were sweet :) We were greeted daily by at least one of them outside.

We will be back as soon as we get another night to ourselves! :) Olympic View B&B has spoiled us to any other lodging in Seattle.

If you stay here, make sure and check out the Tin Room! Fun experience and their Seahawk Skittle was perfect if you're going for a few drinks.

Romantic Gem

  • 5 of 5

A true gem fine. 3 nights = romantic, relaxing, quiet, amazing views for our 24th anniversary! Dave & Eileen were amazing. If needed anything all we had to do was ask. We stayed hermits as the cottage was such an amazing place to hang out and rekindle the love. The views were great, the cottage has everything dishes, pots, pans, Saran Wrap, coffee, tea, wine glasses etc etc. movies, a good book, snacks, coup,e bottles of wine and flameless candles are really all one needs for a sweet get away. The bed was a tad firm for us but the hot tub fixed that as it was soothing for sore muscles! We really ventured out only once to make a store run and also found an Asian cuisine restaurant 15 min away from the cottage. It's called the Mandarin Kitchen it was very good. Will definitely recommend this cottage and hopefully come back again ourselves. A gem worth finding and staying at!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here. Olympic View Cottage is very comfortable, neat and clean, absolutely beautifully appointed with everything we needed for our 2+ day stay -- living area, kitchenette, living room/dining area, large tv, walk-in shower, towels. PLUS a balcony with dining set + grill + jacuzzi hot tub, and a most gorgeous view of Puget Sound. Not too far from downtown, so we enjoyed the best of both worlds -- doing all the touristy things in Seattle and then were able to get away to this great cottage. Nearby places we enjoyed dining were the 909 Coffee & Wine (in Olde Burien) and 13 Coins Restaurant (Seatac location), which is maybe a 10-minute drive away from the cottage. We highly recommend staying here. It was perfect for the two of us.

We look forward to your return visit soon. Happy Holidays!
