Description

Welcome to Writers’ Retreat!  This one of a kind cottage sits perched on a hillside offering sweeping vistas. The view over Sequim Valley, historic Lotzgesell Farm and the Olympic Mountain range make it unforgettable. This property and home will give you the ultimate ‘Sequim’ experience!  Built in the 1920s, the cottage offers a wonderful country charm you just don't find in newer homes.  Local novelist Rachel Bard purchased this house in the 1950s, lived and wrote here, producing several novels.  The current owners  made a few of these books available for your reading pleasure.  Although it has since undergone extensive remodeling, the owners maintained the integrity of the home and the era when it was built.  South facing windows make this very cozy home bright and welcoming.  Details in the craftsmanship will take you back in time: warm rustic wood paneling throughout, charming tiled floors in the baths and turn of the century doors and knobs are some of the finishing touches that make this home special.  The cottage has a queen master suite with attached bath.  A queen room and bunk room with two twins share a nearby guest bath. This home sleeps four comfortably.  The living room's large bookcase offers a variety of novels and games for you to enjoy, plus a TV and WI-FI for movie night.  You will be drawn to the cozy window seat near the propane stove where you can catch up on your favorite novel or take pleasure in viewing the beautiful farmlands below.  A charming country kitchen with breakfast bar overlooks the valley and mountains. Additional entertaining space on the large back deck is peaceful and secluded, just perfect for your summer barbeque.  Outside you will find some unique landscaping including a beautiful towering madrona tree on the southwest corner of the house.  Be prepared to hear wild animal sounds from the nearby Olympic Game Farm, open for daily driving tours.  The cottage is centrally located for easy access to local parks and beaches, plus it is about 10 minutes to downtown Sequim.  A very popular area for bird watching, cycling, kayaking, and more.

The pictures for Writer's Retreat do not do the place justice. The view from the deck is truly spectacular. Every evening we'd see a family of deer come out to graze on the field below. What a sight. The inside of the house is so cute, warm and "homey" that you instantly fall in love with the place. Bed and bath linen were top notch and the whole place was sparkling clean. We felt very comfortable "moving in" even during the stressful COVID times. The place was perfect for two adult couples as the bed and bath rooms are in different ends of the house. The kitchen was spacious enough for people to maintain social distance during meal preparation. We were sad to leave. Writer's Retreat is truly a special and amazing place to be on vacation.

Loved staying in this little cottage with views of the valley. Very comfortable if not a touch dated and shabby. Beds were comfortable. Bunk bed room very small so adequate for small children but not teenagers. Kitchen fairly well stocked. Good selection of games. Would have liked to have had a blender in the kitchen.

Our stay was amazing. This space was cozy, bright, private, clean and comfortable. The view is spectacular. The back deck overlooking the scenery was our favorite part of the house. It was the perfect weekend retreat, we highly recommend this place!

Stayed in town for work. Great views. Bald eagle nesting right off the back deck. Wish there was a washer and dryer, but that wasn't worth docking a star. Really cool spot with easy access to everything.

It was exactly what we wanted: quiet, cozy and comfortable. It was more space than just two of us needed, but I would definitely consider returning.

Gorgeous views! We enjoyed our stay here. Cute house with a friendly cat wandering around outside. Clean house, comfy beds and a great deck to relax on and enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the views.
