Bay Cottage

4346 S. Discovery Road , Port Townsend, WA 98368 USA (Show map)


A charming seaside retreat nestled on the bluff at Discovery Bay...framed by the majestic Olympic Mountains, frequented by bald eagles, otters and blue heron, offering miles of sandy beaches strewn with sand dollars, providing peace and a place to relax. Soak up the sun on lazy afternoons, beachcomb, swim in some of the Northwest's warmest waters. Experience a dazzling sunset while curled up near a cozy bonfire...fall asleep listening to the gentle sound of waves lapping at the shore. A step back into nostalgia where feather beds, fresh flowers, lace and gracious hospitality welcome you. We are normally closed from December 1 through February 28.

Relaxing on the bay

5 on April 22, 2017

We made the trip up there for our anniversary weekend and stayed for three days. The whole trip was a surprise for my spouse and the owner went out of his way to make it special. He helped plan the surprise the week before we had our stay then made sure to make us feel at home for the extent of the trip. The cottage has a beautiful view of the water and is perfect if you are looking for a way to turn off for a few days. We were given fresh baked cookies upon arrival (which could be arguably the best cookies ever) right before we were given the full rundown of the area. The owner made sure to suggest a great restaurant for our anniversary dinner and continued to provide amazing hospitality for the entire trip. For the experience that we were given we definitely plan to make it back for years to come.

Best Place Ever !

We stayed in April 2013 and will return. This place is so very special. The quiet, the views and lovely beach, the host/owners helpfulness, the clean and cozy cottage all made our visit to Port Townsend all the more special. I especially enjoyed the unplugged no TV, Phones, etc. a rare find today. M. Jones Blk Mtn NC

Bead And Breakfast Relaxing Getaway

5 on June 30, 2011

We found a perfect place for our family to relax and unwind. We make a priority to take the family to places where we can get away from the fast pace and to places where we can relax and appreciate nature for what it is. The Cottage Get Away is truly a gem. The best vacation rental in the the Townsend area. The rooms service and and lake views where exactly what they advertise. I recommend you give them a call if you are in the area. 4346 S. Discovery Road, Port Townsend, WA 98368 (360) 385-2035
