Recent Puget Sound North reviews

  • T&J from SA, TX

    "This was our second stay at the cottage and we enjoyed it even more than the first stay. The fresh baked pie at arrival was second to none, which is always a great start. The view is awesome, which is not only of Puget Sound, but of whatever wildlife or birds that may in the area. It is a great place to go and relax, relieve stress and appreciate the greater things in life. Edmonds is a great community to shop and eat. The ferry to Kingston leaves from downtown and you can even catch a train to Vancouver, B.C. if you want some adventure. There are many wild blackberry bushes to harvest in August & September, plus John & Laura grow all kinds of berries, plums,apples, and even some rhubarb. John & Laura are great hosts, always willing to provide information, and their "talking stool" idea is very helpful. We look forward to our next visit. The 38 or 39 steps down to the cottage can be a challenge, but it is still well worth it."

  • Great location, flexible owners

    "This home could easily be amazing, but we had a mix of good and bad during our stay.. all in all the owners did everything they could to make it right and we appreciate that. For us the home was smaller than it appeared online with 4 rooms/bedrooms, the last of which was recently converted from a garage. While there are extra beds, the size of the common areas would make it difficult for more than one family to stay comfortably. This home is the guest house to the main house next door that rents for around twice as much. Our biggest disappointment was upon arrival and the home had not been cleaned, floors dirty with food spills in the kitchen, dining room and used soap and wash cloths in the shower. I spent half the first day cleaning and would've thought someone was still living there, shoes in the closet etc. The owners apologized and explained they had tried a different cleaning crew and we came to an agreement on compensation. Much of the home is older and in need of more updating, the kitchen and accessories especially, some worn furniture, carpet and peeling wallpaper etc. The tree swing outside was a favorite but the tree is obviously dead and I wonder when it'll become a hazard. Old food and used toiletries need to be removed in my opinion. While the main bedroom has beautiful views and large windows you have to use plywood covered with stapled sheets to block out the light. One of which regularly falls down. This all was very unexpected for the weekly price point. The location for us though was perfect, directly in between my family members homes, the house a much better option than the local hotels, about 45 mins to Seattle... I would've appreciated a welcome packet explaining the rules of the lake and things like grocery stores. For example, we rented jetskis and they gave my 14yo a permit, after being stopped by the boat police, we found out that Lake Sawyer has a 16 year and over requirement for personal watercraft. When I thought of this vacation more like camping, all the little things didn't matter. The lake was absolutely beautiful, my kids liked feeding the baby ducks and using the kayaks, there's a nice mix of games and movies to use, wifi and netflix. We really had a great trip and overall enjoyed our stay."

  • Beautiful Beach House!

    "We had a wonderful 4 day Thanksgiving holiday at this beach house on the west side of Whidbey Islland. It is right on the water, so we walked from the house on the beach up to the park and along the path and shore for about 5 miles. Shorebirds, eagles, ducks, and beautiful sunsets. Also, had some huge waves and weather rolll in while we were there and it is so cozy to sit by the fireplace and look at the amazing view right at your doorstep. The remodel is perfect. The updated kitchen and cozy living room as well as the bathrooms and 2 bedrooms were just right. Every appliance and kitchen tool imaginable. Lots of glassware, plates, and silverware. You don't need to bring anything extra. Close to Oak Harbor if you need to pick up any supplies. We also visited Coupeville which is only about a 10 minute drive. This is the second time we've stayed here and we will definitely be back again!"

  • Amazing stay

    "This has to be the cabin that inspired Hansel and Gretl. It was one of the coolest places we have ever stayed. From the minute you pull down the long driveway you are a million miles from Seattle. The cabin is quiet and serene. We spent hours drinking cider and sitting on the porch reading. My husband runs a construction company and must have spent the majority of his time looking at the wood and inspecting how well the cabin was made....He was blown away by the details. The bed was SO cozy and comfortable. It's pretty centrally located, we went back and forth between Langley and Coupville for coffee and snacks. After spending a day hiking deception pass we couldn't wait to get back to soak in the tub. This is now a staple for us for Fall in Seattle. It was the most amazing place. And Luanne could not have been an easier/more gracious host!"
