The Innkeepers

Welcome to Colette’s Bed & Breakfast. We are delighted to share one of Washington State’s most distinctive destinations and best kept secrets, the Olympic Peninsula.

We enjoy sharing our love of nature, passion for entertaining and the art of relaxation with our guests, and continually draw inspiration from the natural beauty and the majestic coastal setting of Colette’s.

We have spent many years enjoying and experiencing the great outdoors. Our past adventures included management positions with The Nature Conservancy and a National Wildlife Refuge, as well as operating our own hiking and walking tour company which specialized in wonderful trips to the Olympic Peninsula, the Pacific Northwest and British Columbia, Canada. We have extensively traveled and researched the Olympic Peninsula and have many suggestions and insights that may assist you in planning your special getaway.

One visit to our breathtaking 10 acre oceanfront estate makes you understand why Colette’s has been a favorite getaway for so many couples. Over the years, the property has developed into a romantic retreat that reflects the natural beauty that is the Pacific Northwest.

For your convenience, our concierge services are available even before you arrive. Every special event is planned to the smallest detail and brought to life with the finest in personal service. We can custom tailor special occasions to your individual tastes.

We offer an innovative culinary style characterized by fresh, local ingredients that are tastefully presented. We seek out the best and most healthful ingredients in order to highlight where the food comes from and how it reflects the season.  Colette’s menu features items that change daily and themes that change seasonally.

We hope that what we have put together on our website gives you a taste of our romantic coastal retreat.

We appreciate the time you have taken to pay us a virtual visit. We hope it’s the first of many. We look forward to welcoming you personally.
