"I hearken back to an old old movie...Enchanted Cottage. In that movie a not so handsome couple became beautiful while in that cottage. Not that we became different people buy it did somewhat transform us. The wooded setting was almost magical. I didn't walk of the trails but my husband and dog did and they both enjoyed it. The house was clean and very beautifully decorated. We absolutely loved it and will definitely go there again and again and highly recommend it."

"Thanks again to Kathy and Bruce Thurston! I've been to the Heren House over the last 7 years. It is always a wonderful time and just a perfect way to spend time on Whidbey Island. Beverly Beach is an ideal, scenic location to really experience what the Puget Sound has to offer. The Heron House has great views of Beverly Beach and its west facing arrangement gives you the best view of the sunset. The decks and hot tub make for a great vantage above Holmes Harbor to nature watch. Location plus accommodation. A+. Thanks again for a great time."

"My wife and I spent three nights here and it was EXCELLENT! The pictures on FRBO are exactly what it looks like. No disappointments. Everything was/is new and clean and in great shape.
One exception. While we were there they were rebuilding the stairway down to the beach so we couldn't get down to the water. Not a big issue.
We loved it and we HIGHLY recommend it."

"My husband and I, along with our dog stayed 4 nights in September. My sister came over and joined us for 2 nights. Our trip was simply to find a quiet place to sit and relax. This cottage was perfect. It is really quite roomy and Julia keeps the cottage very clean and the grounds are really nice. The view from the deck and yard is real nice, especially the sunsets. There is a chiminea in the yard for small fires to enjoy while having a glass of wine and enjoying the quiet. Julia already had it set up for our first fire when we got there. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals, and a large bar-b-que outside for grilling. Even though it was the end of the season we had some nice cherry tomatoes for our salad from her garden. There is a fenced area for a dog to exercise if you are not comfortable with letting your pet off-leash on the large grounds. Julia gave us good information on some restaurants we might enjoy. She is also a very accommodating hostess and made us feel very much at home. We plan to visit again and send our thanks to Julia for her hospitality! We have already recommended this cottage to a couple of friends who we know will enjoy it as much as we did."
