The guest cottage is surrounded by a gorgeous, woodsy landscaped yard and gardens on owner’s property. Flagstone path leads to this intimate and charming cottage.
Recently renovated with new carpet and furnishings, the cottage is decorated with a combination of charm and elegance. All the comforts of home are in place for a relaxing weekend or extended stay. Enjoy coffee or outdoor dining on the patio as you overlook and enjoy the gardens.
Minutes and walking distance to downtown Port Angeles, shopping, great restaurants and the Coho Ferry to Victoria BC, or take a 30 minute drive to beautiful Hurricane Ridge or Lake Crescent. Walk or bike on the Olympic Discovery Trail which spans approximately 130 miles east to west. The trail is a wide, paved pathway designed to multi user standards for bicyclists, hikers, and disabled users. Enjoy coastal beaches, Olympic National Park, Deer Park, Hoh Rain Forest, Port Townsend Victorian seaport, Dungeness spit (longest spit in the Continental US) and many other favorite Olympic Peninsula locations.
Note that we have made the check in time for our cottage, 3 pm and check out time at 11 am for your departure.
The cottage is exactly as described. Very cute, nicely located, quiet street. But we were amazed at how much effort they had gone to to make sure that everything you could think of was available. Many condiments, spices, laundry detergent, paper towels, cleaning supplies, first aid kit. I could go on. The TV is newer and has DISH which I found easy to use. The fireplace makes it very cozy as we stayed in the winter. Susan was very accommodating and went out of her way to buy me a spice that was not there, which was above and beyond in my opinion. Also, I found Port Angeles to be very friendly and also accommodating to what ever you may need.
If there was a way to rate ten stars- we would. Everything from the booking process and verification of reservations to check out was easy, smooth, and full of hospitality. The cottage itself is adorable- perfect location for the town of Port Angeles and perfect spot for anyone wanting to explore the coast or other Peninsula towns. The cottage was very well equipped- I believe Susan has this kitchen stocked with more baggies, seasonings, and supplies than ours is at home. We arrived to a note congratulating us on our honeymoon and an amazing shortbread. We did not want to leave. I would recommend this adorable and charming cottage to anyone. It is the perfect escape to the Pacific NW and the hospitality is amazing. We cannot thank Susan enough for this experience and will be back.
I am so happy we decided to rent this cottage after reading all the other excellent reviews! My fiancée and I went to P. Angeles to celebrate my 54th Birthday. The cottage was clean, cozy, beautifully decorated, and totally stocked up with everything that you may need, from cooking a fancy meal to a simple sandwich. Susan, the owner, provides you with all sorts of spices, condiments, coffee, teas, sugar, popcorn, hot chocolate, and more, all included in the price. The bathroom is fully stocked up as well, with razors, emergency kits, and several personal items that you may forget to bring! Susan has thought of every possible single detail you may think of, or need. I am not kidding. You have to see it to believe it! Susan kindly called us on our first day, and told us we were welcome to check in earlier if we wanted to. When we arrived at the cottage, we had a wonderful surprise...a delicious shortbread cookie, a bottle of wine, and fresh pears waiting for us at the kitchen with a welcome note from her. During our whole stay, and we stayed there for a week (!) Susan was extremely helpful by suggesting places for us to visit, and restaurants for us to try. The cottage is carefully and beautifully arranged with details that made a difference on our experience on this trip. My fiancée and I would have never had the memories we have today if we had stayed at a hotel. We felt more like family guests, and it was hard to say goodbye. But please rest assured that you will be able to have total privacy. Before I forget, you may also ask Susan for a grill if you want one. She will get it ready for you in the back yard. We did. It was a nice new grill. We grilled 3 times, and were able to enjoy the backyard garden and the comfortable lounge chairs...fire pit...etc! You will not regret staying at this cottage!! Even though we live far, in Illinois, we plan to come back next year ...hopefully to go to the places we couldn't make this time. Do I have to say how beautiful the Pacific Northwest is? Oh my!! Thank you so much Susan for the most wonderful time, and for your dedication and care to the Dragonfly Cottage! We will see you next year!! And if you are still reading my review, I truly hope you won't think twice about renting this cottage! You will love it as much as we did!!
Susan's charming cottage was a great place to stay near Olympic National Park. The location was perfect for visiting the northern portions of the park including Hurricane Ridge, Crescent Lake and the Sol Duc area. The cottage itself is very nice with its own outside area. The gardens are very pretty. Susan provides every amenity necessary for a great visit. We didn't cook but the full kitchen has everything one would need. There is even a washer and dryer. Susan provided restaurant help and even coupons! The check in/check out was very easy and our deposit refunded right away. I highly recommend this property.
Like others have said, this cottage is very clean and stocked with everything you need. Susan was friendly and accommodating, but gave us privacy. It was the perfect place to come back to after hiking and touring around all day. The electric fireplace gives it a cozy atmosphere. My husband and I hope to come back to port Angeles and stay here again.
Truly wonderful, just as amazing on our second stay at the dragonfly cottage. We have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals and this is by far our favorite. Susan has stocked the cottage with everything you need in the kitchen, we have more cooking options at this cottage then our own house. All of the fixtures and finishes are new and everything was done with care and attention to detail. We love the decorations, the fire place and sitting in the garden drinking afternoon tea and eating the homemade shortbread. The bed is amazing! Centrally located with easy access to the road to Hurricane ridge and shopping / restaurants in town. Fast internet, cable TV, great tourist information. Read the guest book for tips. We will definitely be back.
Head downtown for a great meal, a perfectly-made coffee, or some incredible boutique and antique shopping. Hop on the Coho ferry and take a day trip to Victoria, B.C. (don't forget your passport or enhanced license)! Hike or bike down the Olympic Discovery Trail, or up in the mountains at Hurricane Ridge. Visit pristine Lake Crescent or drive out to the coast for some of the most rugged and unscathed coastline you'll ever see! Explore our waterfalls, rivers, streams and trails throughout the Olympic National Park. Spend the day whale watching with Island Adventures Whale Watching tours. Port Angeles, the best departure point in the state for Humpback Whale watching.
While here, don't forget to visit SWAIN'S old fashioned general store, first opening in 1957 at this same location (just one block away). You will find name brand apparel and footwear, sporting and camping gear, hardware and sundries. Their slogan, "Swain's Has Everything". It's been said, "If they don't have it...you probably don't need it". This is truly an old fashioned experience you don't want to miss!
