About Dave and Eileen Schmidt

Thank you for considering our cottage as your lodging choice. With only one cottage and both my husband and I the only ones operating it we will make your stay personal and special. Dave and I opened Olympic View Cottage in 2000. We never thought it would take off like it has. It has been fun for us meeting all our guests from all over the world. We have had a lot of honeymoons celebrated at Olympic Cottage, several engagement proposals throughout the years and have had the couples come back for their anniversaries. From birthdays to military homecomings and so many other special occasions celebrated in the Cottage. It has been so fun to be able to share Olympic View Cottage with all our guests for all these memorable occasions. We really enjoy sharing our special paradise tucked away on this quiet hillside. My husband has lived here his whole life and we just can't get away. Beginning and ending each day with this breathtaking view and quiet location is truly a blessing that we will never take for granted. Many times I find myself looking at the view and catching myself saying out loud 'WOW- this is just so beautiful!” It is truly amazing. Everyday the view is ever-changing with the sunrise and sunsets, the cool Puget Sound breeze, the storms that roll by and the boat and ferry traffic all day long. It is just awesome. We hope we can share our little paradise with you as you read through what we have to offer. And if we don't have something in the cottage we will most likely have it in our house for you. So you don't have to go out and buy anything. You are the only guest in our cottage and we are here to make sure your vacation is perfect! We'd love to meet you this year and you’ll see why it is so hard for us to ever move away from this special hidden paradise. Our best to you always -

Why Dave and Eileen Schmidt chose Burien

We only have the one cottage, and the hot tub and cottage is all yours! Enjoy complete privacy, our Jacuzzi Hot tub, a fabulous neighborhood, and a convenient location to airport and freeways. Pure peacefulness at Olympic View Cottage. Close to many fabulous restaurants, bars, and grocery stores. Read our reviews on HomeAway and Trip Advisor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I apologize for the delay, but could not let the opportunity pass to let you know about the wonderful experience I had while at your cottage. Last weekend my boyfriend and I booked a stay with you for our anniversary. I can’t begin to tell you how amazing the time we had there was. From the view, to the privacy, to the unique amenities of your kitchen and being able to add an intimate touch to our meals by cooking for ourselves and having private, relaxing dinners, lunches AND breakfasts. This, to me, surpassed any traditional bed and breakfast in quality and service in more ways than I have time to elaborate on. I wanted to say thank you from the both of us for not only providing outstanding, quality service…but for giving us an experience and a memory.

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Olympic View Bed and Breakfast Cottage is the perfect place for a vacation. My husband and I were going to the Seattle area for a friend's wedding and an extended vacation. We are not fond of hotels as we prefer to have a kitchen area and more privacy than a hotel has to offer. This was the perfect little cottage that met our needs in addition to the perfect location. It is far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Seattle but close enough to enjoy all the things Seattle has to offer. This is not your "traditional" bed and breakfast as you have the entire cottage to yourself and can chose if you would like the hosts to provide breakfast items or not. Dave and Eileen are the perfect hosts and allow as much privacy as you desire. The views from this cottage are magnificent and the location is perfect. We very much enjoyed our stay and recommend this perfect little cottage to anyone traveling to the Seattle area. ~Michael and Micki, Denver Colorado.

Perfect!

The Olympic View Cottage was a delight. It is immaculate and is set in a very picturesque location. Lots of information with suggestions for sites to see, transportation, restaurants and hikes in the beautiful outdoors. I would rather keep this little gem a secret ...too late for that!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for 3 nights and had a fabulous time. The location to the cottage is wonderful, close enough to Seattle but yet far enough away from the noise of the city. The view off the balcony and from the bedroom window of the sound is breathtaking. We were extremely comfortable during our entire stay. The sheets on the bed I am still dreaming about, I am somewhat of a sheet snob and have been known to bring my sheets from home while traveling, the sheets on the bed at the cottage were AMAZING to the point that I just purchased some of my own and anxiously waiting for them to come in the mail. When you stay at the cottage make sure you have a day where you do nothing but enjoy the cottage and the town of Burien. The town has great restaurants and really friendly staff. On our first night we went into town and had an appetizer and drink in a few of the restaurants and they were all wonderful. I purchased the Seattle City Pass, you can buy it online on either Viator or Trip Advisor at a discount, giving us the opportunity to visit many of Seattle’s attractions at a discount.

Some of the activities we enjoyed:

• The Pikes Place (pink umbrella) Tour in Seattle which was AMAZING for a tour

• We took in a Mariners game - the stadium is great

• Chihuly Garden and Glass – a MUST see!!!!

• EMP Museum – great for any music lover

• Space Needle

This was my first experience with VRBO and oh my goodness I couldn’t have been more pleased. YOU HAVE TO BOOK THE COTTAGE!!!! We will definitely be returning and now that we got all the touristy stuff out of the way next time will be simply for relaxation.

Thank you so much Dave and Eileen for your hospitality

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your very sweet review. We are so happy you felt so comfortable in the cottage. We do enjoy our central location, close to so many activities, yet far enough away to enjoy the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. And we are happy you ate at all those fabulous restaurants in our little town. They are convenient ... plus it saves a lot of time and money and you don't have to pay for parking like you would in the city of Seattle. We look forward to your return visit where you can sit back and relax. Enjoy those sheets!

Beautiful cottage overlooking Puget Sound!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fabulous time staying at Olympic View Cottage! Dave and Eileen Schmidt were wonderful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed!

Olympic View Cottage was quaint, very clean, well maintained, and private! If you are looking for a quiet place to get out of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this cottage is the place. We spent many hours on the patio enjoying the view of Puget Sound and the amazing sunsets. The cottage is also close to downtown Seattle and state parks around the area - we shopped, ate fantastic food, visited key areas in Seattle (Pikes Market, Space Needle, etc) and hiked Rattlesnake Ledge - all within 20-45 minutes of the cottage.

Thanks to our great hosts! We hope to return in the future!

Peaceful and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights and wish we had been able to stay longer. The view is amazing - perfect for watching the sunset. The cottage is very comfortably furnished. The owners were very helpful while at the same time giving us privacy. By far the best place I've rented through VRBO.
