The Olympic Peninsula is such a beautiful and lush part of the Northwest; we have gorgeous forests and rugged coastlines to explore. Thankfully, our Sequim Cottages offer you the best of both worlds. We’re on a bluff overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca and have the Olympic Mountains behind us. Our cozy Sequim Cottages overlook the waterfront, and we have a private beach for our guests to enjoy—perfect for bonfires, beachcombing, and birdwatching.
Sequim is also ideal to stay if you plan to go hiking, biking, or on other outdoor adventures this winter. The Northwest is an outdoor lover’s paradise, after all! Additionally, this lush destination in the NW corner of Washington State is also a magical place for romance. Our Sequim cottages are the perfect place to escape for a unique couples’ getaway, and this winter is the perfect time to start planning.
The Dungeness Bay Cottages are situated right on Sequim’s beautiful waterfront on the Olympic Peninsula, an area known for its majestic mountains, breathtaking beauty, and unbeatable outdoor recreation. At just three hours from Seattle and Tacoma, our waterfront cottages are close enough to get away for the weekend, but it feels as though it’s miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Moreover, the area is absolutely full of charm and character, along with plenty of things to do.

Here are the best things to do in Sequim at our vacation property this winter:
- In the Northwest, chilly days don’t stop us from enjoying the beach! On clear, crisp days, it’s lovely to head down to Dungeness Bay’s rocky and sandy shoreline. As a guest at our Sequim Cottages, you’ll be a matter of steps to our private beach reserved for beachcombing and bonfires.
- Be sure to take in the sunrises and sunsets from the large windows of your cottage or the beach. These sights are unbelievable and the perfect place to start and end each day on the Olympic Peninsula.
- Skiing at the Hurricane Ridge Ski Area in the Olympic National Park is a fantastic way to spend a winter day. Located just about an hour from our Sequim lodging, you’ll be able to hit the slopes and retreat to our cozy cabins to warm up and relax in the evening.
- The Dungeness Spit is the longest sand spit in the US and is home to the New Dungeness Lighthouse. With the right timing with the tides, guests can hike out to the lighthouse (about five miles) for a refreshing walk along the water.
- There are so many things to do in downtown Sequim, including its world-class restaurants, great shopping, and wine tasting. We suggest Nourish for a healthy, gluten-free lunch and Salty Girls Seafood Company for freshly shucked oysters and sparkling wine for happy hour and dinner.
- Grab a beer at one of the excellent local breweries, or head to the fantastic Washington wineries for tasting and tours!
