Another great stay at Eld House

4.8 on July 24, 2015

We love staying with Chris and Jennifer at Eld House. You basically have a one bedroom apartment looking out over the beach and water of Eld Inlet. It suits our needs as we like the extra private space. Chris and Jenn are great hosts and fun to chat with. An extra plus is that we are fans of the same sports teams ( Go Duke!) If you are planning to book for the first time, you need to know that you are provided with baked goods, a beautiful fruit bowl, milk, orange juice and cereal and have your own breakfast from those options. Full kitchen so you can also cook for yourself. Great value and beautiful location. So peaceful!

By Far the Best Place in Olympia--and south Puget Sound!!!

I cannot believe how beautiful, peaceful, and perfect this place was. From the moment we arrived I knew that we were not going to want to leave. The Heron House is absolutely amazing. The beach is so accessible, we literally kayak'd with seals every morning! And Chris and Jennifer are the most gracious hosts ever. Everything was perfectly clean and they had thought of every detail. We stayed here before and this place just keeps getting better.

Amazing place!

This place is absolutely amazing--from the location, to the friendliness of Chris and Jennifer, it is by far the best place to stay in Olympia (and we've tried them all). The Heron House is probably the most beautiful and unique cottage you will ever find and the Eld House is simply amazing. I cannot recommend this place enough--stay here and you will glad you did. And like us, you'll be back!!! Thank you Wagners!!!!

A Peaceful Cottage

The Eld House was a perfect place for our family to land for a weekend of work/play in Olympia. Easy commute into the city. Our two young children loved the treehouse, fountains and played on the safe rocky shore when the tide was out. Hoping to return so we can enjoy a ride on the kayaks! Thanks for a memorable weekend.

Had a wonderful stay at the heron house. Exactly what we needed. Nice little community. Friendly people. Amazing views.

What a place!!

This is such a beautiful place to stay and what a view! They had our breakfast already in the room for us to enjoy (continental) without having to go anywhere. The home is beautifully decorated and comfortable. I wish we had the time time further explore the many amenities here and on our next trip, we will definitely stay here.

Highly recommended

Beautiful location, careful attention to detail and comfort. It exceeded my expectations in every way.

Eld House Cabin

Not traditional B&B. This was a cabin and cottage with breakfast already in suite when we arrived. Very adequate for our needs. Lovely property. Would definitely stay again

Great Sister Getaway

3.8 on March 14, 2015

My sister and I loved Eld House. Great halfway point between Seattle and Portland. Only confusion was which house was Eld (the 2-story) and which was owners. The Heron House, located up the hill, looked very cute.

This is a beautiful and charming location to unwind in. Everything was wonderful--we stayed in Heron House and it was terrific. Chris was very communicative and everything was absolutely wonderful. The only thing I wish I had known in advance is that there are no cooking facilities--only a toaster oven and a microwave--so it was difficult to make food. Next time we'll bring different food with us. Would recommend for sure.
