Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Waterfront cottage on Butler's Cove off Budd Bay in South Puget Sound near Olympia. Cottage sits 13 feet from water's edge. Boat, swim at high tide; beach comb at low tide. Quiet, wooded acre setting where you may spot deer, bald eagles, blue herons and other wildlife and birds. 27 steps (cement) with handrail down from the parking area to the house.

Perfect location for visitors to The Evergreen State College or to the State Capitol. Great option for a romantic get away or for a family vacation. Cabin is five minutes from west Olympia (where you will find Skep `n Skein Pub, Vic's Pizza, grocery stores, food co-op, shopping, restaurants, plus movie theaters and shopping at Capitol Mall), and ten minutes from downtown Olympia (live theatre, waterfront boardwalk, marinas, Hands On Childrens' museum, restaurants, Fish Brewery/Brew Pub, and the State Capitol campus).

Good base for visits to Washington coast and Olympic Peninsula, as well as Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier.

About Deborah Pattin

My family has owned this waterfront cottage since 1982. We lived there full time for 11 years before building a larger house to accommodate out growing (now grown) children. We continue to vacation at the cottage, hold family gatherings, or just go over for a walk on the beach or for a outing in the boat. We live not far away from the cottage so if you need anything while you are there, have questions, need directions or referrals, etc., we are usually nearby to be of assistance. The cottage is set up like a home and you will be quite comfortable there.

Deborah Pattin purchased this cottage in 1982

Why Deborah Pattin chose Puget Sound

We fell in love with the property the minute we first saw it in June 1982. The cottage is nestled at the base of a hill on an acre of forested land. The road to the property is a windy country road that hugs a forested hillside. The second you drive onto the road, you feel the cooler temperature, smell the forest and the water. You give a relaxing sigh. Ah, relaxation. From the decks of the cottage, you are only 13 feet from the shore edge and you can watch the tides come in and out, and view the wildlife: deer, seal, blue heron and other sea birds, salmon, river otters and more. A wonderful place to relax.

What makes this cottage unique

Close to town but it feels like you are miles away. You can be downtown or at the State Capitol in 10 minutes, to The Evergreen State College in 5 minutes or less, and to Hwy 101 or Interstate 5 within 5 minutes, as well as to major grocery stores, shopping centers, service stations, movie and live theatres, pubs, restaurants, churches, museums, medical offices and the hospitals within minutes. But it feels like you are out in the country, in a quite, private retreat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were snug as bugs in a rug during the snow storm in February. It was great to have the cozy cabin to return to each evening during our 5 weeks on the job in Olympia.

Quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my weekend in your cottage. So close to town and other beautiful sights. It was a perfect spot for a a quick trip to see my daughter. The kitchen staples and spices certainly made it easy. The wood stove warms the main room nicely. Views of bay, flora and fauna are amazing! Can't wait to come back for a longer stay. Communication was A+.

Quiet, Peaceful cove view with walkable beach below.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a small family reunion, sfter my husband's sister Ruth arrived unexpectantly from CA. Thank you to Deb for helping keep Ruth's arrival on our second day secret, making her surprise arrival so perfect for us all.

A great spot to spend a quiet evening and lazy mornings during a week exploring Olympia and surrounds with my brother-in-law we had come there specifically to visit. A special completion to our west coast trip to Alaska and WA and a truly great respite before returning home back east from our trekking in Denali, etc.

Thanks for everything, the well marked cabinets, the comfortable beds, the easy to manage kitchen and comfortable dining area, and above all the beautiful cove views from almost all the windows.

A short drive downtown takes you to all the main attractions, parks and restaurants. Will be reccommending you to friends.

Brenda Hollweger.

Perfect summer getaway

picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

The driveway view alone was beautiful. The trees and view of the inlet were perfect. Every day we saw a harbor seal and/or otters. The house was very clean, and we loved the fact that there were basics in the kitchen. There were spices and salad dressing, oils for cooking which was great because at our other homes on this trip we had to buy everything. It can add up real quick and then you have to toss it when headed home. The owner was very helpful and provided brochures and books on the area. We would like to stay here for a full month next time. There is also easy access to the Olympic peninsula and surrounding areas.

Nestled in a wooded area, the cottage is less than 5 minutes from The Evergreen State College and only 10 minutes from the State Capitol and downtown Olympia. Butler Cove is a tidal area that empties to a stream at low tide and fills to the bulkhead at high tide.
