Catchpenny Cottage entrance

Catchpenny Cottage is over 800 square feet–very spacious and private! Once the carriage house of the estate, Catchpenny Cottage is filled with memorabilia from the horse-and-buggy days. On the National Historic Register, this unique two story structure is now part of the guest accommodations offered at Chinaberry Hill.

Recently renovated into two private guest suites, the suites can be rented separately (see Carriage Suite and Hayloft descriptions below) or combined into a group/family vacation rental. The combined suites can acommodate 6-7 guests (two bedrooms, two full baths, large walk-in closet, private Jacuzzi). Both suites have cable TV/VCR – there is a complimentary video library in the main guest area of the inn.

Just 10 steps from the inn, cottage guests enjoy the best of both worlds–total privacy, and 24 hour access to the entire downstairs of the inn (two parlors, guest kitchen, dining room, fireplaces and wraparound porch).

The guest kitchen is kept well-stocked with complimentary juices, bottled water, sodas, cookies, popcorn and teas – great for those midnight raids!

Lots of greenery–hollyhocks, ferns and tall spires of foxglove greet cottage guests. Close to downtown Tacoma and waterfront happenings, yet providing the solitude and intimacy of a garden setting, Catchpenny Cottage is the perfect Pacific Northwest retreat.

Special Group Rate for two+ night stays: $325/night +tax for four guests ($50+/night savings), $300/night for four+ night stays ($55+/night savings), $35/night for each additional guest.
