Daydream Cottage on Lily Lane is a sweet gem of a getaway with stunning south-facing views of forest and sky from the deck and indoors. Daydream Cottage is a delightful spot for experiencing sun, storms and all the whimsical times of day at the coast. You’ll hear the echo of surf through the trees.
At the edge of the Olympic rainforest, Daydream Cottage on Lily Lane is decorated cottage casual with a touch of city flair. Accommodations welcome adults, kids, couples and solo travelers. Beach, pool, parks and shops are all a short walk near-by.
Come on in through the back door, to the spacious kitchen. Enjoy appliances, gadgets and gas range for your gourmet creations. A gas grill is located right outside the kitchen door, with its view on Lily Loop Park. Make a bonfire there, wood provided, and have a picnic at a table out of Land of the Giants. There’s a nice lawn for kids to run around, too. Four outdoor seating areas let you follow the sun with your book and refreshments.
Daydream Cottage amenities invite longer stays and shorter retreats. The library has activities for all ages, and for everyone to play together. Entertain yourself with games, short stories, novels, foodie books, and DVD movies. TV, Netflix and Pandora netcast radio, too. Make a crackling fire in the wood stove.
Upstairs, two bedrooms feature comfy luxury beds. The Queen bedroom has a big view on East Alder Park, Mill District rooftops, the sky and forests beyond. The XL/Twin or King bedroom (conversion kit provided) overlooks Lily Loop Park, giving the desk a great view onto the neighborhood. In the full bath, enjoy an excellent tub and lots of hooks and shelves for your stuff. Downstairs, a queen sleeper sofa provides flexibility for guests.
High ceilings give an airy feeling throughout. Both bedrooms upstairs have room to write. Wi-Fi makes work and play possible. Daydream Cottage can be a fine home office, the ultimate ‘work from home’ situation. The cordless land line provides good back-up if your cell phone coverage is spotty, and you need to make local or national calls.
To the east, the Olympic forests go on and on. For forest hiking, exit the front gate at Daydream Cottage on East Alder Park, onto Lily Walk, and turn left. Trails out this south-easterly way on the Seabrook Cottage Rentals map are mountain bikers’ favorites, too.
A charming getaway and creative retreat, Daydream Cottage is in Seabrook’s Lily Walk neighborhood, near the Gnome Trail to the beach. Look for the red roof. To The Beach!
No pets allowed, and owners don’t bring pets to Daydream Cottage.

All four of us definitely enjoyed Daydream Cottage. Our main goals were to cook, read, listen to music and go for walks on the beach. Fabulous setting. We enjoy your Daydream Cottage blog posts. Nice place for our next visit to the Washington coast! ~ Jeff & Marci
We had a delightful time. Four of us comfortably shared Daydream Cottage and explored the area for painting. The kitchen and grill worked really well. We enjoyed your videos featuring artists. Liked Seabrook immensely, walking the neighborhood, the trails, and to the beach. ~ Meg and Roger
We had everything that we needed in the kitchen which is rare when renting a place. The overall experience was unmatched. Daydream Cottage was great. Even in the rain we had so much to do. ~ Mark & Shannon

We've chosen Daydream Cottage twice, once for a weekend then for a week. The place is very accommodating for our family. We like to cook, and the kitchen is well stocked for cooking and serving. There is nice seating by the grill right outside the kitchen door. So we had to use a match to light the grill. The weather is no friend to a grill, but the sun was great in that seating area and we enjoyed the families building a fire while the kids played on the grass in the central park of the neighborhood. Next time we'll do that, with s'mores. The sunny porch facing the trees is a great place to sit for morning coffee, lunch, cocktails, in between our meanderings to the beach and excursion to Lake Quinault. The beds were very nice. Lot of places to put our stuff. Kids calmed down and even found a hideout under the porch. Then they got excited. They called it their pirate's lair. We loved this vacation rental! Only wish we could go more often.
