"I'm not going to repeat what others have said about this lovely spot because we found it all to be true (including the spotty to non-existent wifi, but we welcomed the opportunity to disconnect for a bit). What I will add is how absolutely smitten we were with the beauty of the island and the dynamic community it hosts. We were blessed with gorgeous weather and had the joy of experiencing the Farmers Market on Saturday morning. The "hippy" vibe appeals to me and I immediately felt welcome in this community. The restaurants we ate at were truly enjoyable, but I especially want to point out Snap Dragon. That will definitely be a go-to place when we return in the future. We did some exploring around the island and drove quite a bit of it. My wife and I we so enamored we even started looking up property listings. We will be returning to this beauty spot."

"Call me Ishmael. On the arrival of June or July of each year, at the beginning of those 100 days or so of Hades in my home port of Charleston, I long for the cool breezes, clear waters, and tasty victuals of the Pacific Northwest. This summer, my aged aunt and I sallied forth to same, having in our packs comfort wear and light windbreakers. On arrival, we found our berths to be quite spacious and comfortable; and consistent with the age of the ship, the quarters were immaculate and served our purposes perfectly. On that first daybreak, we spied a great, dormant volcano to the Southeast. The water was a tranquil crystalline azure. A few other sailing vessels were on the horizon, following the incoming tide along the coast of adjacent Great Whidbey Island. The water was bracing, and nary another swimmer was seen. One of the locals later explained that the water is considered intemperate by most, but since I have suffer from chronic Dunlop's Malady, as well as having Welsh blood in my veins, I found swimming in the sea most bracing and invigorating. We spent much time on deck playing card games for small wager; and after a week at sea we were tied at that portent of good fortune: 7 matches apiece. At Even Time, we followed the course of the setting sun across the hills of Whidbey Island. We also could spy in the distance the Great Olympic Range, befitting in majesty its name. Meals were prepared in a very spacious and ample galley. The ship was also equipped with a strange, black rectangular object that was perhaps some flotsam or jetsam from an unfortuanate earlier venture. This dark curiosity was not further investigated during our week long voyage. Alas, and all too soon, we arrived back in port and returned to Oppressive Carolina where the heat and ague and miasma continue unabated."

"Wow! In fact I'll double down with another Wow! Our family just finished a six day stay at The Cedar Cove Inn. Let me put it this way. If the entire state of Iowa was paved with asphalt with the Cedar Cove Inn sitting alone in the middle it would still be worth staying at because the house is so amazing, so beautiful and the proprietors so kind and gracious. Of course it sits majestically overlooking Puget Sound. Now to practical points that will be of use to people. We experienced Cedar Cove as a family compound but it's a bed@breakfast that also, perhaps primarily, rents by the room. I told my wife I could easily see staying as a couple because there are so many magical spots. It can accommodate a couples' inclination to mingle but preserve the option of privacy. As for a family gathering it was indescribably perfect. Gil and Kathy were kind and helpful but truly unobtrusive. They were available for help or suggestions. To preserve the coolness Gil closed the west outside blinds around 3:00p.m.but otherwise you would barely know they were there.....and we were a full family of conversation and pealing laughter. The location is surprisingly accessible to Seattle. A five minute walk down the hill and you're at the ferry. Tacoma is pretty darn close and there are trains that go right into Seattle. We had a great day seeing all the sights and closed it out with a Mariners game. Port Orchard is a handsome town, a perfect base to explore different regions. You're even closer to the Pacific coast. A bit of a haul but yes you are closer. In closing I would add that the property is incredibly well maintained. The photos accurately depict what to expect but in fact can't do it justice. No matter how long you stay you will still be discovering details of perfection and unerring good taste.....courtesy of Gil and Kathy. Thank-you both. Long review and guess what? Haven't even scratched the surface of what I loved about it.....p.s. Just read this to my wife and she said it would be a sin not to mention how perfect the kitchen is for a family that loves to cook. She's right."
