What makes this house unique

Privacy privacy privacy. Pets Pets Pets. You can bring your dog and feel comfortable knowing you aren't violating policies. Just be a good owner and don't let the dog roam the streets and pick up after the duties.

There is a doggy door on the side that is fenced, so if you leave for awhile, you can let your dog go out and come back in. It's a rustic play pen area for dogs and people, and you don't have to worry.

There is air conditioning when we get really hot nights, which occurs around June 15-September 10th, on average. Last year was even a hotter and longer summer!

If you have a boat, camper, RV, we have safe off street parking to accommodate. The water is a block away, with access minutes away. Local parks, marinas, the state capitol, arts and entertainment make this small town kind of a big deal. Depending on rental dates, there are fresh raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, pears, chives, mint, and 3 garden beds with vegetables growing for the picking at your whim.

Character and charming tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing and has everything plus we were welcomed with wine, candies and many special touches. Very clean and smells amazing. Fully stocked kitchen with great cookware. Plenty of towels and extra blankets.The air conditioning was a bonus. The decking and flower/herb gardens are impressive. Several areas to sit outside and enjoy the yard and breathe in the fresh air. We even made s'mores in the fire pit. We truly enjoyed our stay, thank you!!!

Pampered and pretty!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Lisa, pretty much thinks of everything to make you feel right at home. From the welcoming bottle of wine on the beautifully set dining room table to coffee beans and grinder and fresh fruit! It’s all there and even a few toys you the kids. Cable TV, WiFi, sound system, it’s all there and ready to go. This is a great location, a small country town feel yet still close enough to Olympia for an east night out on the town. We’ve stayed here twice and plan to be there again soon.
