Doug & Lisa’s Story

After years of living and working in the big city of Seattle, WA, we decided to make a big change in our lives, to move to the Washington coast and start a hospitality business! It’s been a dream of ours to move to the coast for many years as we raised our children. Our children are grown and on their own now so we decided it’s time to fulfill our dream!

We have been coming to the Washington coast since our children were small. We spent those years camping at Cape Disappointment and Grayland Beach State Park, being out in nature, gazing at the dark skies and millions of stars at night (not so visible in the big city), sitting by the campfire, listening to the sounds of the ocean waves crashing on the shores and the wind blowing through the pine trees (much better than traffic), beach combing, clam digging and crabbing, the things we have always loved! Our children enjoyed bike riding, hiking trails and swimming, skim boarding and boogie boarding at the ocean. After our children were grown, we started staying in yurts or cabins (instead of tent camping, yurts and cabins provided heat, electricity, and beds!). We eventually decided to stay in a cottage and loved it! It was like a home away from home, had comfortable beds, a kitchenette, a private bathroom, a TV, most of the comforts of home. All we had to bring was our clothes!

We started thinking about opening a bed & breakfast or motel & cottage business. We liked the idea of running a business where we could help make people happy, feel relaxed, and have fun while on vacation.

Wanting to provide our guests with cozy, comfortable, friendly and relaxing accommodations, we discovered Enchanted Cottages, which fit the bill! The cottages are adorable, cozy, walk-to-the-ocean vacation rentals. We fell in love with the Enchanted Cottages the minute we laid eyes on them!

The first night in our new home at the Enchanted Cottages, we walked outside. The street in front of our new home was quiet. Although we could not see the ocean, we could hear the surf – a heavenly sound!

We hope you will come stay at our little cottages soon and enjoy the serene gardens and fountains, the comfortable, cozy accommodations, and all the wonderful things the Long Beach Peninsula has to offer: the beautiful Pacific Ocean and beaches, the many lakes, the Columbia River, the charming downtown area of Long Beach and its oceanfront boardwalk,  the 8-mile paved Discovery Trail through the dunes, great restaurants, lighthouses, outdoors activities such as clam digging, crabbing, fishing, bicycling, hiking, beachcombing…there is no end to the adventures awaiting you!

We look forward to meeting you and making your stay at Enchanted Cottages and the Long Beach Peninsula a relaxing and fun experience! We hope that you will come back many times in the years to come!

Come, experience the enchanted coastal life!
