Interaction with guests
We live next door on an acre. The cottage is on an acre as well so both houses are very private and far enough away for comfort. We are readily available by phone/text for any questions or issues. We are happy to interact as much as you like. We have guests that we never meet in person as they are busy with their agenda and we have guests who like to share a glass of wine/beer/soda and chat. We love meeting our guests if they are interested!

The cottage is comfortable and relaxing. We loved the fireplace for the cool mornings. The grounds are beautiful- tall trees and beautiful flowers. We hope to stay again.

This is a lovely cottage in a very wooded area north of Seattle. We loved it there. It is very well stocked with all the essentials one would need. We were welcomed with a nice note, wine and music playing. Would love to see it in the summer, the gardens look like they'd be lovely. GPS is very helpful.

My son and I loved the cottage - after exploring Seattle all day it was the coziness of a fire and the quiet of the woods that we came home to. Having a fire every night, making dinner and working on puzzles was great. The cottage has lots of hot water, a laundry room and all the modern conveniences. For...
