What a nice find! We choose the Captain's Quarters to easily fit our family of four....and that it does! It is perfectly equipped, immaculately cleaned and nicely appointed. The views are stupendous. This is a great spot for a few nights to explore the area. There are some really solid dining spots in the area as well! I wish there... More

We didn't hear any people from the other cabins. -If you have a question about your stay they will call you back quickly. -Clean cabin when we arrived. -Large cabin lots of room for our 2... More

Thanks for the detailed review of the Clam Cottage. We're super glad you enjoyed the stay and had a chance to take the pups out for beach walks. For future reference - we are happy to bring extra towels when needed, however we generally only stock one set per person for stays that are 2 days or less. Our self... More

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights in the birds nest a few years ago. The cabin overlooked the bay and we had the most beautiful sunsets. There were bald eagles flying around the property and the little beach was really nice. On clear days we could see the mountains from our windows. The two women who... More

Awe shucks! Thanks for the kind words! The Eagle's Nest is definitely a great spot for eagle viewing action. We've been having a lot of activity lately - not sure if they are just getting stirred up in the spring frenzy like the rest of us. There's a nest being built close by, because we watched one the other day... More

We've stayed at SMR 3-4 times over the years in different cabins: Tree House, Skippers Quarters, and Eagle's Landing. The location is great -- near the beach, the highway, the casino, easy access to Sequim or Port Townsend. It is easy to book. We found the rooms to be clean as expected on arrival and accommodations as described on the... More

Awe shucks. This is exactly why we try so hard to encourage guests to contact us if there are any issues. Since we are a woman owned and operated business - I am not sure who you met that identified as an owner. My best guess is that it was one of our long time return guests staying in the... More

I came there with my two boys in August and we had the most relaxing, yet still adventurous time ever! They provided everything we needed, were very accommodating, but still gave us our privacy. It really felt like our home those three days. The atmosphere was laid back beachy, cute and cozy. I loved sitting around the fire in the... More

Can we just say that your two boys were/are so polite and fun!! Kudos to you and we're so happy you decided to bring them to SMR for some beach time together. To us, it's all about being together, exploring and getting dirty, touching the sand, playing in the water and sitting around a campfire. Thanks for sharing your memories... More

We stayed in the Landing, my wife, her parents and myself. We were in the living room looking at the water all day long, from afternoon until it was dark. It was summer, and it was completely dark only around 10 pm. What a beautiful cottage and what a lovely experience. The only tricky things here are the parking and... More

You must have been reading our mind! :) We have been actively changing the parking area at the Landing this summer as the first phase of a landscape renovation. There will be much more room for parking, unpacking etc in the future. Unfortunately Sequim does close down a bit early. The 7 Cedars Casino is open for late nighters -... More

If you are visiting the Sequim, WA area, this is a wonderful place to stay. You won't want to leave. Everything was absolutely perfect! We stayed in the Osprey Nest - one of about 8 or 9 unique cabins, all perched on the side of a hill that leads to the ocean shore. We choose the Osprey Nest because it... More

Thanks Ted!! Sequim really IS a great place to come visit - and maybe, just maybe - your sister talked you into moving here. :) Thanks for making SMR your spot to join all the siblings together. We're really glad you all got to catch up and get away from some of that Texas heat in the meanwhile. Of course... More

Stayed in the tree house, we were the only guests (it seemed). It was the perfect escape, quiet and serene. A bald eagle was just outside our window. We loved the sunset and sunrise by the bay. Can't wait to come back! Cabin was spacious for two and the shower was nice and hot-

We spent two nights in the Clam Cottage and wished we could have stayed longer, but it was time to go home. The selling point was the view onto Sequim Bay -- totally amazing. Very serene, very beautiful, no matter what hour it is. The cottage itself had a comfortable queen bed, a daybed and a futon-like sofa. Kitchen had... More

Most of our guests are out the in the Park during the day, exploring, hiking and taking in the majestic and beautiful landscapes. It's a true blessing to be located right in the middle of all of it. We're happy that the Clam Cottage served as a home base for some great adventures. Thanks for being innovative with the window... More
