Overview

About the property

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.

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.

Clean and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my 3 yo and 3 mo while we visited family in the Olympia area. This was perfect for us. King bed was comfortable, cottage had what we needed for meal prep and it was clean and uncluttered..which helps with a toddler running around! Also great location. Thank you Joe/Bonnie for a comfortable stay.

This house was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

All we can say is thank you. We were traveling with our newborn and needed a quiet place to stay that was clean and far enough away from people that his crying would interrupt anyone else. This house was perfect. It was close enough to everything yet just far enough away to give us some privacy. The owners were extremely hospitable and the dog was so cute. Just a sidenote, The best burgers in Olympia are just down the street. We will recommend this place to all of our friends and family and so should you.

Perfect! Felt like home.

Quaint place in the middle of horse country but still close to everything we needed. Very close to beautiful bike trail lined with blackberries.

Wonderful Little Place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend. We took our bikes and rode the bike trail. It is an easy trail that is not crowded. We went to the Farmer's Market, Antique stores in town and got a good hike in. Plenty of good restaurants too. We will definitely go back there again. Close to town yet out of town.

Cute, Cozy, Clean

  • 5 of 5

Peter & Bonnie responded promptly to our request to stay at their cottage and were easy to communicate with. Their cottage is in a lovely setting and is a great home base and easy drive to anywhere you would want to go in Olympia or Lacey. We took advantage of being near the Chehalis Western Trail, and enjoyed the company of Lilly, the sweetest dog ever! We will absolutely consider staying again at this Cute Cottage should our travels bring us back to Olympia.
