The fine print...
I offer a Queen-size bed in an elevated loft -
*PLEASE NOTE: TO ACCESS THE LOFT / BED, YOU WILL NEED TO BE ABLE TO CLIMB A **VERY** STEEP LADDER.
The Cottage is SMALL, the photos here make it appear larger than it really is.

The Living Room harbors a sofa, cozy fireplace, 40" HD TV, and free Wi-Fi Internet.

The Kitchen is stocked with housewares including a drip coffee maker and features new S/S appliances, and granite-tile countertop.

Bath boasts of floor-to-ceiling tiled shower and custom vanity. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hair dryer also provided.

Bedroom is located in an elevated loft where our guests are required to climb a VERY steep ladder to access. For your comfort a Queen size, 10" hybrid Green Tea foam & spring mattress is provided for cushioned, firm support.

Other things to note
GUEST INSTRUCTIONS and REMINDERS
FIREPLACE and/or WALL HEATER
Please DO NOT run both appliances at the same time; this will result in blowing the fuse(s).
Remember to TURN OFF the HEATER(s) on your departure.

INTERNET
Please keep Streaming (You Tube, Netflix, etc.) to a minimum – our carrier will charge an additional monthly fee if it exceeds the original plan…

LINENS
Please DO NOT strip linens from bed(s) as it is easier for my cleaning crew to see and treat stains. To aid in mold prevention, leave used towels hanging on hooks so they may dry; often it may be a day or two before cleaning.

DISHES..
Please wash your dishes and silverware before your departure; this includes pots/pans and skillets. There is a dish drainer and drying mat in the base cabinet to the left of the sink.

*Your assistance in keeping the Cottage clean reduces the cost of maintenance and utilities so I may continue to offer the Cottage at this affordable rate.

Upon Check-out please RETURN KEY TO LOCKBOX.
============================================================
Garbage is collected every other Friday, usually between 8:00 am - 11:00am, so there may be excess vehicle noise during these times/days.

I am a native Washingtonian with a passion for historic homes. Been living in Tacoma for 25 years and absolutely love it. The waterfront and scenery here is the best in the state. The Old Town Cottage was originally built as crew quarters for the fisherman who inhabited this area in the late 1800’s. It has been completely renovated and ready for your stay!
