Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Olympia - Cute Country Cottage

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

This cute country cottage is located on Shincke Road in Olympia, Washington. The cottage is located only a few miles from town, but it is in a beautiful rural location with amazing access to the Chehalis Western Trail.

The 22 mile Chehalis Western Trail runs north-south through Thurston County and connects to the Yelm-Tenino Trail.

Be sure to bring your walking/running shoes or your bikes.

This cottage is a great place to stay when in town for events held at the Capitol, St. Martin's University or the Evergreen State College.

The cottage is clean and bright with a full kitchen, bathroom, vaulted ceilings, and skylights. There is a king sized bed and a couch that folds into a twin bed.

There is easy pull through parking with room for a trailer or RV.

Our owner-occupied residence is next door so if you have questions or concerns, we are easily reachable.

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Peter or Bonnie

Our family loves living in Olympia. This is where I was born and the majority of my family resides here. We returned to Olympia after spending time teaching overseas and in Alaska. It is a wonderful place to call home.

Peter or Bonnie purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Peter or Bonnie chose Puget Sound

We purchased this property in 2009. We live on the same parcel as the cottage in a large white 90 year old farm house. We knew this property was for us because of its rural, but close to town location.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the access we have to the Chehalis Western Trail and the pastoral views.

Cute, Quiet and Roomy!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute and well appointed cottage in the county! Super comfy bed and luxurious linens, and a roomy bathroom. The kitchen is stocked with every possible appliance and utensil. The grounds are farmy, quiet and the most convenient parking ever.

Quick trip to anywhere in the Olympia area. Will definitely return for next year's K9 Nose Work seminar at the Thurston County Fairgrounds.

Very nice place to stay - country setting but still close to town.

  • 5 of 5

Nice cottage located on the same property as the owners house. Well kept and perfect for a couple. Pete made some good recommendations for hiking and seems knowledgeable about the area. My only suggestion is a larger refrigerator. good place to park and we felt like the whole area was very secure. We would stay there again!

comfy cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage was perfect for my stay. Very comfy inside and everything I needed was right there. Close commute to Olympia for sight seeing and of course the farmers market. The cottage is close to the road so you have to listen to the traffic for the locals going to and heading home from work, but that is only for a short time in the morning and late afternoon, otherwise the nights are quiet. I would definitely stay here again.

Close to a network of walking and hiking trails...

  • 2 of 5

Our stay was great. This quiet property is all you need if your on-the-go in that region of the state. The locals were friendly and the country roads made you feel like your well away from the mainstream. Lily was the treasure.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I can only infer from the star rating that you were thinking about comparables to hotels, as our place is a clean and well kept, but simple cottage, no pool or restaurant, similar to a 2-star hotel in that respect.
