  • I can see why they call it the "Treehouse."

    "My girlfriend and I spend the weekend (February 15-17) at this property and even though the weather was rainy, windy, and cold, we were completely cozy and content thanks to the gas stove and ample heaters built into every room. I have to say I was surprised by how beautiful the house and view were. Although the photos are okay, the real thing was quite impressive. The view of the water, framed by the madrona, fir, and alder trees was amazing and several couches made a perfect place to read, nap, and just get away from it all. Top notch appliances, utensils and cookware, and unflappable wifi despite the remote location and stormy weather made for a great place to stream House of Cards. All in all, a perfect weekend!"

  • Perfect place to relax and renew

    "The photos don't do this lovely home justice, and that's really how we felt from the moment we arrived--at home. The property was exceptionally clean, scrupulously maintained, and generously stocked. The owners have thought of everything--from carefully labeling the light switches, to providing detailed, explicit instructions on how to light the gas-log fireplace, to generously leaving a well-stocked larder of staples (flour, sugar, couscous, arborio rice, herbs and spices) with instructions to "help yourselves." We spent hours a day sitting on the spacious deck, looking out over the Pickering Passage to the Olympics in the background and listening to the birds. The superb sound system was an unexpected pleasure, as was the treasure trove of jazz and classical CDs. We couldn't have asked for a more restful, relaxing, enjoyable vacation. Thank you, Todd and Lynne, for sharing your jewel of a home with us."

  • Totally Awesome Vacation Spot!!

    "Our family of three spent a three-day weekend at this Harstine Island retreat and had a supremely enjoyable stay. The cabin is cozy and warm, centered around a large wooden table for family activities. The kitchen may not be granite and shiny, but it is totally what you expect in a woodsy island cabin. Our 15-year old daughter took over the loft area as her own space. A huge wrap-around deck and easy chairs provide outdoor spaces as well as a large comfy hammock slung between trees. We took walks to the beach nearby, hiked along the bluffs, and enjoyed the sunny beach out on the point. The view across Puget Sound is beautiful and relaxing. Sandwiched in-between a very busy trip to the Northwest in which we hiked and climbed far up Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Hood, to the point of exhaustion, the island was a welcome retreat in which we were able to lay back and do very little as we wanted. One drawback is that there is no wi-fi in the cabin, however this was really an inconvenience as we simply timed our internet usage to our visits to the community center where the signal is strong. At the central building there is a large and inviting pool, (the photos at this site do not really do it justice, or the island or the cabin for that matter, and should be updated) large enough to swim laps in. The large and hot jacuzzi was also well used to soak our weary bones. This is a quiet spot, so if you are looking for a hub of activity or have a lot of restless teenagers who need to be tethered to their devices you might seek out a place closer to civilization, but I totally recommend it as a getaway when what you want to do is recuperate from our all-too-busy lives."

  • Perfect vacation spot for entire family

    "My family includes 8 people ages 2 to 72. We have rented this home in November for Thanksgiving, for a spring wedding in the meadow in front of the house and numerous times in the summer. This beautiful home has everything one needs for an enjoyable vacation. We have always found it spotless and the beds made for our arrival. Access to the pool, the beaches, the hiking trails, the spectacular views and the quiet are why we keep coming back. The owners have been consistently wonderful."
