Welcome to Sequim and Dungeness Bay!
We offer six comfortable and well appointed units with full kitchens. Each unit overlooks Dungeness Bay and your own private beach. As written by Olympic Best Places, “…the muted song of the surf [will] lull you to sleep.” Dungeness Bay Cottages is our new name! You’ll find the same great place, views, and owners; just with a more descriptive name.
Fantastic! What a week… Seals playing almost on our doorstep, sea kayaking to the lighthouse, playing in the surf and hiking the Dungeness Spit.

With the Wildlife Refuge in front of us, and acres of pasture land behind us, we provide a very quiet setting in the sunny “rainshadow” of the rugged Olympic Mountains.
From our landing, lawn, or your living room, you can experience spectacular sunsets and panoramic views of our bay, the Dungeness Spit, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, British Columbia, the San Juan Islands, and beyond!
Take advantage of our southern exposure and enjoy a picnic or barbecue with the Olympic mountains as your backdrop. For the adventurous gourmet, we invite you to share the bounty of our region. Local seafood, shellfish and Dungeness crab, as well as fresh local produce and products from our local growers and farmer’s markets can be enjoyed at our local cafes.
Don’t forget your binoculars, or your favorite book. We recommend A Natural History Guide, Olympic National Park, by Tim McNulty, a local author.
*Dungeness Bay Cottages is a non-smoking establishment and we’ll be happy to recommend local boarding for your pet!*
