"My family spent a wonderful, comfortable and relaxing Thanksgiving week at this amazing house. As another reviewer noted, the photographs don't do the place justice. The house is beautiful, as is the location and the views - indeed a view from every window! The weather cooperated rather nicely for the time of year, and we were able to spend a lot of time outside, exploring the grounds, beach area, and of course relaxing on the huge deck, looking out over the water. The children searched for shells, ran around the meadow, watched the birds and then my son even had an early morning close up sighting of an otter - he thought that was just great! There was everything we needed to cook a nice Thanksgiving dinner, since the kitchen, and the pantry which everyone fell in love with, had all the necessary items, and more!
Marrowstone Island is quiet and peaceful, and the locals are very friendly - we had a few trips to the community store, and were greeted warmly which was lovely. It's just a short drive or bike ride to Fort Flagler and then an easy drive out to Port Townsend and beyond. We found however, that although we did have a couple of trips out, we really wanted to stay 'home' and enjoy all that the house has to offer.
Pat and her family were wonderful, making sure we had everything we needed and their instructions and information about the house, island and surrounding area were invaluable. We very much hope to return to Kilisut Harbor during another time of year, to enjoy it in a whole new way.
Thank you Pat and Nancy!"

"Originally from Quilcene, our family (Me, Husband, and 2 boys aged 7 and 11) moved to Bahrain 21/2 years ago and we return to the area for Summer and Christmas holidays every year. With extended family living in Port Townsend and the surrounding area we needed a home away from home in order to be close. Happy Valley Cottage was a perfect Home for the Holidays over Christmas 2014. Warm, cozy, comfortable, and perfectly located. We had about 20 friends and family over for Christmas brunch and the house had everything we needed to cook for, serve, and entertain the gang.
The house is brilliantly layed out, clean, and cute as a button.
Chuck met us when we arrived, checked up on us after a wind storm, and we knew he was close by if we needed him but was never intrusive. We cannot gush enough about how happy we were at Happy Valley Cottage!"

"We had full occupancy at this great little house! Right on the water for those who wanted to kick back and relax on the deck, but close enough to Port Townsend for those of us that wanted to head in to town to shop, or explore Fort Warden's beaches, and bunkers. The house is immaculately clean, fully stocked from coffee and creamer down to cotton swabs. Laura was easy to work with and made arriving and checking out a breeze! We will definitely return to this hidden gem!"
