  • 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."

    "This was our 3rd stay and each time just gets better and better. Went over to Port Townsend suggested by owner Fran and had a wonderful afternoon. Short little ferry ride, just park your car and walk on -all shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. This is a beautiful location, the views and sunsets are spectacular! Must not forget the wonderful hot tub after your day of adventures! We will definately be back. Thanks again Fran and Thom!"

  • Cozy and comfortable!

    "Our favorite time at the Kingfisher was waking in the morning and looking out across the water from the deck, coffee and tea in hand -- beautiful, quiet, and so peaceful. A big surprise was walking along the beach at low tide and discovering a huge colony of sanddollars -- quite a treat for a city dweller! The cabin was cozy and clean, the beds comfy, and the kitchen was very well equipped. We so wish we were still there!"
