Camano Island house description
Our Camaloch Cottage is perfect for all kinds of gatherings for up to six people. With its wonderful interior and stunning views of Smith Lake plus the private hot tub, you'll find it to be a most relaxing place!
If you golf a little, or a lot, we'll spare you the cost of renting the golf cart! That's right - drive the private Golf Cart from your delightful lakeside vacation house to the community owned three-star Golf Course (open year round), play 9-18 holes of golf, and when you are through explore charming Camano Island and it's quaint communities and multiple public beaches. Access to the Island is via bridge -no ferry delays for your Seattle adventures!
Rain or Shine, you can't help enjoying the playful antics of the local waterfowl out on the non-motor lake just outside your door. And if you feel like taking a soak, the jetted spa on the south facing deck above the lake will soothe your senses, especially if the moon is reflected on the water. Aaaaa...
Our Non-Smoking, Lakeside House is located in a gated community and features panoramic lake views from the living and sleeping rooms, exposed beam and natural wood cathedral ceilings throughout, finished wood accent walls, wall to wall carpeting, a charming gas fireplace in the living room, window blinds, skylights, air conditioning and ceiling fans. It is comfortably furnished with a large spread-out-and-relax leather sectional sofa, marble dining table, large Sitting Area sofa grouping with a curtain for privacy, Loft King bedroom and Mission-Style Queen bedroom. One stunning bathroom has a huge walk-in tile shower and another stunning bathroom with a tub/shower. The garage houses the golf cart and provides storage for your recreation equipment.
With half the rainfall of Seattle you'll have lots of chances to golf or discover the secrets of Camano Island and visit the shops of old downtown Stanwood, nearby historic LaConner, or the $7.8 mil. Tulalip Casino with its dazzling art glass displays, all within 5-30 minutes of the Cottage.
Adjacent to Camaloch Golf Course & Canopy Tours NW for zip line adventures, and 5 minutes from my favorite island beach, there's lots of entertainment!
Come here for that romantic getaway for two, come alone, bring the children, or bring the grandparents and the children to share your island adventure, but come soon. Discounted rates as shown are available October 1 thru May 15, excluding Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Year's Holidays.

Nice and quiet
Nice and quiet
The home is nice and the area is quiet and relaxing. The beds are very comfortable and bedding/towels are high quality. We loved the hot tub and fireplace. Our dogs had a great time in the large yard. I have to agree with another reviewer that "lakefront" is a little exaggerated. There is a lake, but it is very small and it is not accessible from the yard. The water is a serene view from the house, just don't expect boating or swimming.

Not That Great.
Not That Great.
Place was clean & equipped w/ many extras you may have forgotten at home. The place & location were nice but that’s about where it ends. The ad is misleading-the property is on a lakefront but the lake is not directly accessible from the property as a pic depicts, while another pic shows lakeside beach but you are unable to swim in the lake. 'Large pond’ would be more accurate. The ad also states there are 2 bdr; however, there is only 1 bdr & a loft which is open to the downstairs. There was also an issue w/ a missing remote for an A/C unit in the loft, which we were accused of losing but did not use during our stay. We were harassed with 5 phone calls & an email in the course of 1 evening. The owner was very distraught & made clear the apparent urgency, despite the fact the guests were not using the loft & the A/C was still functional–manually, just not by remote. Since we have a young daughter we took responsibility, regardless of the fact the owner had new cleaners prior to our arrival who may have mistakenly misplaced it. This was not something the owner was willing to entertain. In any case, we felt horrible & wanted to resolve the issue as quickly as possible. As the cabin had guests, we offered to return immediately upon their departure & before the next guests arrival. We were told that didn't work for the owner. We went as far as offering any day/time. We were never provided this or any opportunity. We also offered to buy a remote online & have it shipped to the owner at our expense. 4 days after this offer, the owner bought a new remote herself & had it shipped overnight, doubling the cost of the remote. We were confused to say the least as we had 1st of all, offered to do this very thing 4 days earlier thereby lowering the cost to us, and 2nd of all, we had been told the guests would not be leaving for another 3 days. The owner felt they should have also been compensated for their time in dealing with the issue, which would be fair if they provided us any opportunity to resolve it. Throughout all of this we also made inquiries about the security deposit, which went ignored. The remote was bought by the owner 1 full week before the security deposit was to be returned to us, yet it wasn’t until we sent an email the day it was due that we got a response. The security deposit was refunded late according to the owners Agreement & was not refunded in full, w/ the cost of the remote & the express shipping deducted with no further explanation.

Owner response: They had a great time at the Cottage as documented by his comments written in my guestbook. He doesn't mention that his daughter hid the remote controls and 2 of them were recovered while the 3rd, to air conditioner located above the king bed, was not. He has twisted everything in an attempt to discredit me. I have been happily providing a wonderful setting for my guests for 10 years and my guests have been delighted as evidenced by 4 Volumes of wonderful guestbook comments left by my guests. I would be happy to answer any concerns. gloria, Owner Camaloch Cottage, on Smith Lake
Very nice and clean home!! Very relaxing and nicely decorated home. We were able sight see during the day and then hot tub at night. Highly recommend this home to anyone wanting a nice play to stay and enjoy.

We wanted a place to relax for a weekend, and the camaloch cottage was perfect. The weather was not great, but it did not matter. We spent time in the hot tub, sat by the fire, walked to the store, and cooked some excellent meals. We have stayed at many vacation rentals over the years, and most of them feel like a vacation rental. The cottage, on the other hand, felt like we were staying at a friends house for the weekend. The cottage was very comfortable, cozy, and well appointed. Can't wait to come back with better weather and take the golf cart for a ride.

Had a wonderful time!
Had a wonderful time!
We had such a great time at this cabin. It truly has everything you need. We came for a family wedding on the island and stayed an extra day to just have some fun. We went hiking and sight seeing, had dinner in La Conner, used the hot tub multiple times and played checkers and Uno as a family. The cabin is clean, and well maintained. Gloria was so helpful and accommodating to our every need - we would love to stay here again and have some time to tour the neighborhood in the golf cart!

What a warm and comfortable home. Everything we needed for our comfort and entertainment was provided, cards, books, movies, sports equipment. The lake is beautiful, and both mornings we were there we watched a bald eagle fishing for his breakfast. All in all it was a beautiful, comfortable place to stay.
