Evergreen Graduation Weekend

5 on July 05, 2016

Loved our stay at the Heron House! Would HIGHLY recommend it!


Beautiful cabin in the forest

What a lovely spot - a beautiful cabin in a peaceful setting! I love that breakfast fixings are provided when you arrive for maximum privacy. Our toddler loved walking on the beach. The only thing that surprised me - and it's probably mentioned in the listing but I missed it - is that there is no stove or oven to prepare your own meals. Otherwise, this place is a little piece of heaven.


Most relaxing place in Olympia!

I highly recommend staying at the Eld House. Chris and Jenn are amazing people and will give you as much privacy or company as you want. They stick your fridge with breakfast items so you can eat at your leisure every morning. My husband and o enjoyed walking the beach everyday and kayaking. They even allowed for us to hangout late into the afternoon since we had a later flight. We will only be staying here when we come back to Olympia.


Peaceful!

The place was very cute and cozy and located in a quiet and peaceful area. Having all the breakfast food up in the lodgings already made it handy (continental style) but therefore don't expect your typical B & B meal cooked up by the owners. If you want a peaceful and beautiful place to stay and don't mind or prefer the food continental style, this is a great place.


The perfect place to kick back!!

We had just made a presentation in Olympia and were joined by my sister that day, so we needed a rest. What could have been better than this wonderful log cabin?! We cooked a delicious meal, opened a bottle of wine and relaxed. The rain made being inside feel even better. Many thanks for the hospitality, and for being there on the phone when I had a question. We'll be back.


Perfect, cozy cabin

My husband and I stayed in the Heron House for two nights. We loved the cozy furniture, luxurious bed, tasty snacks, and opportunity to get away together for quality time. The cabin is gorgeous and perfect for a couple in need of a getaway. The view is also lovely. Will definitely be back.


Lovely getaway

Eld house is a peaceful, lovely getaway. I will definitely be staying there again.


Herron House, next door to eld house

4.8 on October 03, 2015

we actually stayed at the Herron house, which a log cabin on the same property as the Eld House. The Herron house was wonderful. The cabin was clean, fresh and wonderfully furnished. Very at home feeling. The breakfast of coffee, muffins and fresh fruit was a great way to start each day. We did not get to use the beach or the canoe as planned due to the higher tide when we were around. We frequent many B&B's and this was without doubt one of the best ever.


Another great stay at Eld House

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!!!

5 on June 01, 2015

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.
