This home has everything you need in a perfect location. The kitchen is ideal and the furnishings are comfortable and tasteful. It is ideally located between town and American Camp giving quick and easy access by foot to South Beach and a short drive to 4th of July Beach. It is blissfully quiet and the hot tub is perfect for relaxing in the evening. The owner is generous and easy to work with.

We stayed here with our family for two weeks and it was wonderful! The location is perfect. We loved being so close to the best beaches on the island, South Beach and Eagle Cove, where we spent many hours playing and roasting marshmallows. The drive to town is not long and is enjoyable. Raven Rock was also a great place to launch all of our island adventures. I loved my morning jog out to False Bay...gorgeous views! The home is lovely and comfortable. The beds were great to sleep on - loved the king size bed. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was delightful to sit on the porch in the morning listening to the birds or watching the deer, not to mention a great view in the distance looking out at the Olympic Mountains. The hot tub was an added bonus and was wonderful to relax in. The owner was very informative and helpful. She was a joy to work with. We will be coming back to stay again!

We were so lucky to have found Raven Rock -- this is a secluded paradise. We loved the hot tub (late at night, early in the morning) and drinking our coffee with views of the water through the trees. This home is stunning -- we wish we had stayed longer -- marvelously stocked kitchen (the owner brought fresh fruit for us!) - washer dryer and all the amenities we could want. Tastefully decorated with character and a sense of providing everything we could need for our stay. We loved the deer, the peace and quiet and how luxurious we felt in this well appointed, clean home. We will be back and recommend it highly! Owner helpful, cheerful, informative and delightful.

We were looking for a serene place to get away with my in-laws just outside of town. We found Raven Rock to be exactly what we were looking for: a comfortable house to accommodate 5, a well-stocked kitchen so we could enjoy cooking meals together and a quiet location. The hot tub welcomed us after a long day of adventure and the deer greeted us each morning.

This place was perfect for biking. As a family of bikers, we arranged our days around the many trips we could take from our "island home". The hot tub was the anticipated destination for the end of the day, in fact, I saw stars I hadn't seen in years. We really enjoyed preparing our meals in the kitchen; nothing was missing! I would highly recommend this property to just about everybody.

About the owner: I have lived in Germany and Mexico, and worked in the sea food industry in the Pacific Northwest up to Alaska.
