                        Beautiful house and views from every window! We enjoyed the hot tub, the woodstove and the house had enough space for everyone to spread out! Short drive to La Conner where we dined one night, but otherwise we didn't want to leave the house! Cute little beach, would've been out when the tide was low, had it not been raining. Only recommendations: coffee grinder & updated stereo system to plug in iPod.

                        This house is charming, welcoming, well stocked, and beautiful - with a fabulous view of the Sound. We stayed in the winter and it would be perfect during any season. The location is excellent. It's just a short drive to the grocery store or artsy La Conner. Thank you for a lovely stay.

                        We had an amazing time at Tipping Rock. The kitchen was well equipped, the view spectacular, very comfortable and warm. It snowed one day which gave it a magical look. Highly recommend. Judy was easy and great to work with. Our deposit was returned within a couple of days.

                        Our family of two couples and one child fit perfectly in this beautiful house (with room to spare!). We had a lovely Thanksgiving here, enjoying the amazing views, strolls on the beach looking at barnacles, and the beautiful and cozy home full of artwork. Everything we needed!

                        Three college friends enjoyed our mini reunion at Tipping Rock. We each had our own comfy bedroom and bath. The birthday girl got the master suite with the view - the other rooms were nice but small. Great waterfront view. Interesting artwork added character. Loved the hot tub! Easy bike ride to La Conner. Folks with mobility issues might have difficulty getting to the two upstairs bedrooms. It was quiet with the exception of a partying neighbor Saturday night. Would have earned 5 stars except for some minor house keeping issues we alerted them on.

                        Lovely spot for our girls retreat. Plenty of space, perfectly clean. Only downside was having the clean up guy arrive 30 minutes before check out time left us feeling a little pressured. But will be staying again for sure.

                        This property makes for an ideal weekend getaway or vacation. We had a great time exploring La Conner, relaxing on the deck and attending the Anacortes Art Dash. Great art collection in the house, which is outfitted with everything you could possibly need to cook a splendid meal. The property is very well maintained, professionally managed and is very much representative of the info on the VRBO site. We'll be back next summer, thanks for sharing your beautiful home!

                        We loved the house! The location was perfect. We liked being out of La Conner a few miles but still close enough to enjoy the cute little town. The only complaint we had about the house was that not all the windows had window coverings. And there were neighbors next door so privacy was a slight concern depending on where exactly you were standing in the house. Other than that we loved it and would recommend it to anyone! The beach access was great and we loved the telescope. We watched otters, a harbor seal, and a bald eagle both evenings from the deck. We also enjoyed the barbeque and hot tub. This place had everything! And the sunsets were GORGEOUS! Such a wonderful place - we will come back again!

                        Manager response: Thank you for your thoughtful review Sunshine. It was our pleasure to have you with us and we hope you do grace our doorsteps again. Actually the lot and cabin to the north side are vacant but I will pass onto the owners about the windows. Take care, Management - June 15, there are new window coverings on the two windows facing a neighbor and the front living area.

                        Great place with a great kitchen for meal preparation. Hot tub with a view, and very comfortable layout. Would definitely recommend to anyone else looking for a quiet place to stay in La Conner. Great for a group of friends looking for a place to relax.

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      About: Having grown up on the Eastern Seaboard as a young child I built this home in memory of living on the beach.

                      Why La Conner:
                      The most beautiful place on Fidalgo Island.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Being able to walk to the beach and secluded cove from the deck in less than a minute. The wild bird and animal life from the hot tub. Walking the rural road.
