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.

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 Olympia
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. Business License #: 603 421 921

The very cozy Country Cottage
What a treat to come 'home' to this sweet, well cared for location after a long hard day of workshop activity. The owner and family are all so nice too. I would book it again in a heartbeat!
The property is charming!
The property is surrounded by horse farms, and a beautiful woodland trail system. It's generally clean, quiet and peaceful. I would definitely stay again!
Cute and Clean!!
Not that cuteness is of greatest importance but it helps make a stay that much more enjoyable! This cottage is located on the owners property and is extremely quiet. We never heard from them or saw them so I can only hope that means we were good tenants :) The instructions on how to find the property were helpful as I was initially nervous about entering someones private property. Also helpful was the small sign that says "cute cottage" at the property entrance. Everything looked just like the picture, check-in/check-out instructions were clear and all was well! I would suggest making sure you have your own hotspot for internet usage if you are running several devices but otherwise great place to unwind after a long day of being outside! (P.S. the sound of frogs and crickets at night was beautiful!)
Nice and clean and pretty quiet!
Property was great and could not beat the location. Really enjoyed the proximity to the walking trail and the downtown Olympia.
Super cute and cozy.
This cottage is super cute and cozy. The bed is comfortable, and the location is perfect. Would go back here for sure.
worked out very well for us. Close to everything. Very secluded. Clean. drawbacks are the internet is very slow.
