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

We had a great stay. Everything we needed. It is a great location to visit Olympic and Mount Rainier National parks. It was perfect for the two of us. Thanks.
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!
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.
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.
Very quiet location close to Olympia. We will definitely be back!
We enjoyed access to the entire property. The accommodations are great. We had our twins with us, both under 2, and even with a one room style property, there was plenty of space.
Pat and Bonnie are very nice and they give you your space. The area they are in is relatively quiet and within a few minutes of shopping areas and activities. We had a full kitchen, so a simple trip to the grocery store helped tremendously with eating expenses.
Only issue was the size of the refrigerator. Too small, but we made it work.
I would recommend this property to friends and family for a getaway.
