"My husband and I had a wonderful time at Shep's Castle....a great place to unplug from computer, TV, and life's stresses and get rejuvenated (however, there is a DVD player and lots of movies to watch which was great). The cabin was perfect for our romantic getaway but would be great for a family bonding vacation too. Although there are other homes on the road, since the cabin has trees on both sides and the Hood Canal to the front, we felt completely secluded and it was so quiet, we felt like we were in the middle of no where, which was just what we needed. One morning we saw a mama and two babies seals floating by while eating breakfast. Also, gorgeous Lake Cushman is just a short drive away with lots of hiking trails. I definitely hope to return and have already recommended it to friends and family. Since the cabin is pet friendly, we were able to take our furry babies and they enjoyed it immensely! The cabin was very clean and well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, and everything you need to cook. I can't say enough good things about Shep's Castle! :) No complaints here! :) The only thing I would mention, if a family stayed there or two couples and were wanting some "alone time", there are no doors on the bedrooms."

"We just returned from a fun weekend. We would definitely return to this rental. It has a beautiful view, and is really nice inside. It has everything you need and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this rental."

"We loaded up 2 toddlers, my mom and her husband, my husband and myself for a weekend getaway for mom's birthday. It was a beautiful weekend so it only made the place more majestic. The description was exact as far as amenities and explanation of the physical site. Everything was in great order, and there was so much character. So many little things that - even as an 'over-packer' i was impressed with. The spice cabinet was fully loaded, i mean even karo syrup and odd spices! loved the window that opened to the deck for entertaining purposes. Access to the beach was great. Hot tub was very clean, washer and dryer were a surprise that i didnt even catch - always nice to go home with clean clothes! parking was a little tricky, but again very well explained, and a nice hand cart available for use from car to cottage. All in all an amazing place - thank you for sharing this place!"

"This was my second time at the cottage. Again, not a single disappointment. Clean, well kept - perfect. Hoodsport is close enough for a trip to the market and Port Townsend is just about an hour away for a day trip. The seals on the raft are perfect neighbors, and the beach is literally "littered" with delicious oysters. The location is beautiful, serene, and the perfect antidote to a stressed out life. Will definitely visit again."
