My wife and I loved our stay for almost a month at Soundview Cottage. The outdoor deck and hottub with great view of Puget Sound was spectacular. The 3 rooms met all our needs for a long stay. The food was healthy and delicious. We will be back.

Our Honeymoon Getaway

4.8 on September 27, 2014

Soundview Cottage B&B was a beautiful place we stayed at on our honeymoon in the Seattle area. The view was fantastic and so peaceful and relaxing. The home is furnished with everything you may need. I loved that the refrigerator was stocked well with breakfast foods. We had a superb breakfast that first morning. The hot tub on the patio was the best part. Although we were there in February, it didn't stop us from using it. Can't wait to return, hopefully in the warmer weather so I can enjoy Annie's flowers and maybe do some whale watching. We do not hesitate to recommend this place. Annie is a gracious host and lives only down the driveway so she is accessible if you need anything. Thank you Annie for having such a beautiful piece of heaven for others to enjoy! Jaime & Martha

If you are looking for a place with heart, that can soothe and replenish, this is the place to stay!! We melted into the comforts of home during our stay...the mind relaxes because every detail is covered; the body relaxes with healthy food choices and healing hot tub out in fresh air with soothing view; the spirit renews with quiet stillness, walks near water, eagles soaring, peaceful sleep! Thank You Annie, for sharing this most welcoming cottage with so many folks!

Home away from home...

4.8 on December 13, 2013

My partner and I had stayed here in during the summer time. The place was wonderful. As soon as we arrived everything was exactly as stated and in the pictures. The Innkeeper Annie was very courteous, kind and helpful... such a sweet welcoming lady. The area is quiet and peaceful away from the highway and city. The cottage has a very warm, cozy and homey feeling. A perfect little get away from home with a feeling of home. The bed is fluffy and soft. The hot tub is perfect at night with the stars up above. You can see a beautiful sunset right off the balcony. A romantic place for lovers. We would definitely return here again and again and highly recommend it to others. Thank you Annie for the hospitality and sharing your little secret with us.

Simply Fabulous!

We recently spent one week at this adorable and charming cottage and we could not have been more pleased with the accommodations....service....atmosphere.....setting. Annie is a most gracious host and we so enjoyed her gift of hospitality as well as the lovely grounds maintained by her own hands. This cottage is more than an A+!!

Soundview Cottage - One word - Relax!

4.6 on August 23, 2012

My wife and i attended a conference in Seattle and agreed that we needed to find a nice relaxing little spot to stay on a couple of days afterward to enjoy the area. We found information on Soundview Cottage and decidied that would be the spot. We could not hvae been more pleased with our choice. Annie - the host - was wonderful and met all our needs. The cottage was comfortable, very clean, well equipped and the hot tub in the evenings pushed our satisfaction over the top. I would reccommend Soundview Cottage to anyone that is looking to spend a few days relaxing and taking in the sights and pleasures that the Seattle/Tacoma area has to offer.

Puget Paradise

5 on August 20, 2012

Soundview Cottage offered the perfect getaway for quiet relaxation, yet easy access to the happenings of Seattle and surrounding areas. After a day of exploring, we loved being able to retreat to the peace of the Puget Sound, the view of the Olympic Mountains, and the welcoming and loving energy of the owner and her tranquil gardens. Annie was the perfect hostess. She offered a cottage with everything a visitor could want...a refrigerator stocked with breakfast goodies, numerous maps and brochures, a clean and comfortable environment for hanging in, an incredibly comfortable bed, and a deck that overlooked the sound and some amazing sunsets. In her noninvasive way, she was present for questions, directions, and a continued flow of fresh flowers, candies, and other supplies as they dwindled away during our week. We definitely recommend this haven to anyone planning a getaway to the Seattle area. It was the perfect vacation, one we attribute to our wonderful stay at Annie's cottage, Soundview.

Piece of Heaven

4.6 on August 20, 2012

This B&B exceeded all expectations! It is beautifully landscaped, very private, quiet and serene. It was wonderful waking up to birds singing, or sitting on the deck in the evening watching the sunset. The cottage is immaculate and we were greeted with fresh cut flowers on the table when we arrived. The breakfast foods included fresh fruit, muffins, cereal and numerous other items. The ammenities here didn't end. There was music available for all types, lush bathrobes for the hot tub, extra razors, body lotion, candles, other words, if you forgot to bring something, you'll find it there. The bed is to die for. Very large, lush and comfy. Annie, the owner is very sweet and gave us plenty of privacy but let us know she would be available if we needed anything. This was by far the best B&B you could ask for.
