  • Peaceful and quiet

    "My wife and I came to explore Whidbey Island and get some peace and quiet time. The pictures on the website represent the cottage very well. Very spacious, well equipped and comfortable. The view from the living room to the water was picturesque and mesmerizing. We had front row seats to see nature, such as bald eagles, ducks and deer from the living room. The towns on the island are quaint, close by and people are very friendly and helpful. We had no issues with the cottage that we would have had to contact the manager. The cottage manual was very informative on how everything works in the cottage and what is around the island. We would definitely stay there again."

  • great family spot

    "Just got back from a long weekend stay here with my my 4 year old daughter, and her grandparents too. The house is beautifully renovated, with nice attention to detail in every aspect. The gas stove and oven was a dream to cook with, and the bbq on the covered deck was handy too. Like others have said, the beach a few houses down is great for watching the sunset, the big windows in the house have a good view and let in lots of light, and the fireplaces make it cozy even when the weather is lousy. Even though it's not secluded in the woods, it's still very serene - we even spotted a couple of deer in the yard one evening. my daughter declared it her new favorite cabin, especially getting to choose between two beds in her room!"

  • February 2015-Second Stay As Great as the First!

    "We had such a fabulous stay with friends in this cabin last February, we decided to do it again! The cabin is very cozy, beds incredibly comfortable, and the setting is beautiful. Julia and her handsome dogs Timber and Ketchum were incredibly welcoming on the first visit and they made us feel like returning family when we arrived for the second. The view of the bay, sunrises and sunsets are incredible and the resident eagles and seals have not disappointed. Descriptions and photos of cabin are exactly as we experienced them on both visits - no disappointments at all. A much needed and very relaxing weekend in a great place, with great friends, and great hosts! Thanks, Julia!"

  • What a treasure! A perfect weekend getaway.

    "I spent untold hours/days looking for the right place to take my husband for a surprise birthday weekend. I was impressed with the photos and reviews for Heron's Roost--but could it really be as good as it sounds? No. It's better! A delightfully decorated cottage surrounded by forest foliage and whimsy. There's everything you need and then some. In just a short time I could see work stress dissolve completely from my husband's face. It was the perfect choice for a weekend away. The stairs down to the beach access are an adventure all their own. Two beautiful golden retrievers were very welcoming. And it's quite a treat to visit the special goats and sheep. This is SO much more than renting a cabin in the woods. Dave, the caretaker, is kind and helpful; and there was great communication with the owners, Laura and Steve. I've already told friends to plan a trip here. We'll certainly be back! Thank you! Lauren"
