About Barbara and Dick Yunker
Our wedding was in the front yard of this property in 1980. 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!
Barbara and Dick Yunker purchased this Cottage in 1978
Why Barbara and Dick Yunker chose Lacey
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.'
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

It was exactly what we needed!!
We had an awesome time. We needed this trip and what a beautiful place to be. Quiet, amazing view overlooking Puget Sound and in walking distance of Tolmie State Park. Very comfortable to us and very relaxing!! Just what we needed. We loved it!! We loved meeting Dick and Barb as well!! Took a trip to our Capital Building which was amazing and loved the pizza place Dick and Barb recommended. Had the best gluten free Crust!! We would highly recommend Puget View Cottage!!
So happy you enjoyed yourselves and look forward to hosting you again!

Cozy cottage with fantastic view
The cottage is cozy and the view of the Puget Sound amazing. The location was great for us to check out the local parks and the wild life reserve. It was the perfect place to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary.
Lovely cottage with a beautiful view
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your lovely cottage. It was so nice to reconnect as a family in such beautiful surroundings. We've already been talking about coming again when it is a bit warmer.
