Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps


Welcome to Puget View Cottage--- An historically designated heritage cabin---the only one offered for vacation rental in the south Puget Sound area, tastefully updated for your comfort and convenience while acknowledging the unique classic ambiance that Puget View has to offer.

• Expansive, inspiring marine-mountain vistas

• Private beach

• Neighborhood rain forest and saltwater beach park

Puget View Cottage---with its jaw-dropping view--- is a classic cedar shake bungalow, carefully updated with modern comforts and conveniences, set gracefully among towering firs and rhododendrons on a promontory above the broad south shore of Puget Sound. From your coffee table inside the cottage, outside on your deck, or in the garden hammock, Puget View --- on the grounds of your host's vintage log home --- welcomes you with peaceful beauty and comfortable hospitality, making Puget View Cottage a great choice for weekend getaways, romantic retreats, and week-long stays of family fun.

Come and experience Puget View!

Savor the best of the Northwest --- BBQ on your deck, get out on the water in a complimentary kayak. Share the company of your favorite people over a campfire cook-out on your beach. Be inspired by the snow-capped peaks of Olympic National Park across the bay.

On winter days, cozy up in the cottage, or collect a few sand dollars. Explore the neighborhood rain forest of gorgeous 100-acre Tolmie State Park, nearly next door.

Testimonials: We thought about publishing a few, but couldn't choose which ones! We have over a dozen guest books of lovely notes from former Puget View guests---and friends! We look forward to adding your name to the list and to hosting you at Puget View!

About the Owner

Our wedding was in the front yard of this property--35 years ago. We have offered Puget View Cottage for many years, initially as a bed and breakfast, and as a vacation rental for about eight years. We have met many wonderful people from around the world, and look forward to adding you to our list of former guests.

During 2012 and '13 we traveled overseas, completing many long distance hikes we had long dreamed of doing---the Coast to Coast Trail in England, West Highland Way, The Camino across northern Spain, Walker's Haute Route from Chamonix to Zermatt, Kilimanjaro and a safari (and two months of volunteering in the Burundi :) Two months in the hinterlands of Nepal, a summit of Fuji in Japan, and JMT and Whitney in California---whew! In 2014 we completed our final leg of the Pacific Crest Trail in Washington.

We look forward to sharing the magic of this peaceful, beautiful part of the world--with you!

Dear Brbara and Dick, The spectacular view of Puget Sound, the immaculate grounds and cottage all say that there is something magical about this place. Then you find delicious homemade whole wheat banana bread and comfy knitted booties and other goodies waiting to be discovered. Your hospitality is outstanding! Your kindness and thoughtfulness is truly appreciated and will be remembered. Thank you for sharing your place on God's earth. Dr.A and L, PA

Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this cottage, with its splendid views of the South Sound and Olympic Mountains (especially nice at sunset), great access to the beach and Tolmie State Park, dreamy hammock and great locations. It was very restful and relaxing, like an old-fashioned beach holiday.

For long stays like we had (two weeks), access to the laundry and better Internet connections would have been great. (The log house has laundry and the Internet router, so the cottage doesn't have laundry access and you need to perch in front of the log house to get an Internet signal.)

Strongly recommend!!

Great Family Get-away

  • 5 of 5
We thought this was a great place to spend a week with our extended family--10 in all. Plenty of space to spread out and get away when needed but the central kitchen and dining area was big enough for everyone to enjoy at the same time. All the comforts of home. Family really enjoyed the quiet beach front and water sports.

lovery logo home and amazing views

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is beautifully decorated, amazingly furnished, the views are out of this world, and you can take advantage of the many activities around such as kyaking, stand up paddles. Amazing views of Mt. Rainer. The log home is absolutely gorgeous. There is plenty of room for a family, but also very romantic for a couple.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
Perfect weekend getaway - view of Puget Sound and the Olympics leaves me speechless! Next to lovely park with trails and beachwalking just 5 minutes down the road, or 2 minutes down the stairs to the beach. Lovely art work, comfy bed, cute and functional kitchenette, lovely breakfast waiting in the fridge (including eggs, OJ, home baked banana bread). Lots of lovely details, including knitted slippers. Kayaks available for use too.

From the Owner

Dick is from Oregon, Barb from Alaska. We met here, never dreaming we would stay this long, but why would we want to live anywhere else? Especially when Barb says 'this is like Alaska, but you don't need a float plane to enjoy it.'

From the Owner

Even after so many years, we continue to be inspired daily by the up-close fly-by of an eagle, the majesty of a summer sunset, or the mystery of fog silently lifting. It's easy to be overwhelmed with gratitude in the midst of such a glorious setting---the spirit of this place.
