                        The cottage was absolutely delightful. Well appointed with everything one would need. Loved the heated floor in the bathroom. The owner was most generous and helpful. We were there for a wedding and had friends and family dropping in before the wedding to get dressed. We explained that this would be happening and the owner was most accomodating. We a pre-wedding meal at the Pier Restaurant at the Marina and the wedding was at Brewster's which is an amazing restaurant and specialty food store. Recommend both places. Would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone! As a matter of fact the bride's parent's were thinking they would consider staying at Steele-a-Weigh the next time they were down in Point Roberts.

                        Such a lovely property, and an especially cozy cottage, with absolutely every amenity we could imagine. It's clean, bright, warm ( but cool! ), modern, and inviting. Karol lovingly cares for her lush and tidy garden, which you can enjoy from both the front and back sun decks, as we did, with daquiris in hand. The beach in front of the main house was quiet...in fact, we sat out all day on a HOT July day, and saw only one other couple walk by in the morning, and just a few happy children in the evening. We watched glorious sunsets, oodles of ferries come and go, and ardently searched for orcas, which unfortunately didn't swim by this time ( though, we did see two enormous splashes quite a ways out, which we were unable to identify. Whatever it was, was LARGE and shy! ). Karol and Bill are kind, welcoming, and wonderful hosts, who seem to take great pleasure in sharing their beautiful cottage and environs with visitors. I can't believe how lucky we were to find this property on-line, available only for JUST the time we needed it. It is clearly a popular place to unwind. Close to Vancouver, yet oh so far away! We stayed 2 nights, but left for home feeling so relaxed, it seemed like we'd been on a week's vacation. We will definitely be back, and I am recommending it to all of our family and friends. Cheers, Karol and Bill!

                        You hear it all the time but it really is true " the pictures are nice, but they do not do justice to this restful quiet place. This is really and great place tp spend some time, I'd spend a few days here in the winter when it's raining and cold and still enjoy it. Bill and Karol are very warm and will make you feel at home

                        Everything you've read in the previous reviews is so very true accurate. This place was simply amazing, The owners took what was an old, rustic cottage from about 1912 and totally transformed it into a well laid out and aesthetically pleasing modern little cottage with all the charm and character of yesteryear. This is evidenced by the cute alcoves, high, sloped ceilings,lovely wood fire place, with original stone/brick surround, and exposed wood beams. This all gave it a warm, and spacious feel. I'd even go so far as to say that his was, by far, the most well equipped and nicely situated cottage we had ever stayed at. The ocean was literally steps away, but with the neighboring houses,cottages and rural road being far enough away, it was blissfully quiet Because the owners used to live in the cottage themselves, they have thought of everything when furnishing and decorating it . They left all the tasteful art work in place, before moving to the house they built down the lane. Consequently, the ambiance is so wonderful, you'll feel like the place is yours within 5 minutes of arriving and you won't want to leave! :) The hosts are so warm and accommodating, they treat you like family or old friends. They make themselves (and their road bikes and sea kayaks) readily available, without infringing on your privacy.My husband and I loved hearing about the history of the home and of the community. And we also took advantage of some of the tasty coffee shops while touring around the whole point on our bikes. This was such a picturesque and tranquil getaway, you'll feel like you've set the clock back and landed on a little known island. It was very relaxing, all while being close to the large cosmopolitan city of Vancouver. A very unique and scenic corner of the Pacific North West, and we would definitely come again, while exploring the Olympic Peninsula in both British Columbia and Washington State.

                        This is our third time staying and have already booked our next stay. What can I say the cottage is great. Sitting on the beach is great, having the bonfire at night is great. You just need to bring your food (unless you eat at the restaurants), personal items and clothes as everything is there. Lawn furniture with cushions, beach towels, wine bottle opener. You can walk along the beach for miles, there is the grocery store 5 min by car. Brewster's Restaurant is a 10 min walk and they have good food and also have a little store that sells some things. The bonus for us is that this side of Point Roberts you get beautiful sunsets.

                        My husband and I had never been to Point Roberts and feel fortunate to have stayed in this lovely cottage, called Steele A Weigh.Crazy name, but It really is a steal away. The bed was extremely comfortable, the bikes and kayaks in great shape and user friendly, the fire pit was 20 feet from the beach and overlooked the Sound, the whales (which I just missed twice!), and the sunsets,The cottage is practically new and everything was well planned r: the linens, kitchen space, bathroom--all immaculate. We both felt well cared for and our privacy was respected in a relaxed manner. Although he weather forecast was for rain, we got mostly blue skies and pleasant breezes. There is a nice coffee/tea shop with home made scones and muffins was a short walk away. The drive to Vancouver is about 25 minutes, and easy . Blessings on the owners for being such palacial providers of comfort.

                        This was the perfect winter sanctuary for me! The cottage is adorable! It was very clean and comfortable. I ate most of my meals in - the kitchen is so accomodating for cooking. The bed - deliciously comfortable. Wonderful fires every night. Beautiful, stormy ocean. Bill and Karol - amazing people. I hope to see them again!

                      Quiet, Quiet, Quiet and More Quiet.
