"Absolutely could not ask for a better experience. We were looking for a home away from home and found it. The owners go above and beyond for their clients -- they have provided a cozy lakeside cottage that is well stocked and they do so with professionalism and decorum.
Cottage was clean, comfortable and convenient with fantastic amenities and a stunning view. The grill provided was used almost daily and the wildlife / nature experiences were amazing."

"My girlfriend and I stayed at Gary's condo from Apr 17-20 and were pleasantly surprised. After speaking with Gary on the phone I knew this is where we wanted to stay. His informal approach to renting his accommodation was very warm and welcoming. We were renting early in the season and requested he did what he could to have the kayaks available for us to use during our stay. He bent over backwards to make this happen and my god were we happy he did. We packed lunch and refreshments into the kayaks and paddled out. We found a lovely private beach were we relaxed all afternoon in the sun, it was perfect.
Some things you may want to know when looking into this property:
The bed is super comfortable. We often use vrbo for weekend getaways and that's one thing we have often found, terrible mattresses. Definitely not the case here.
Gary himself may be this property's best asset. He's looking for people to enjoy their time and come back another time (we will certainly be doing this, just trying to iron out the dates).
Shower is great. It has the large 'rain' style piece, wall jets, and the removable wand.
Although the kitchen is a little dated, and even though the oven looks like it's from the 50's it actually works very well... I guess they don't make things like they used to!
Internet worked perfectly, as did the cable. Everything is as advertised.
GOLF...if you enjoy the game, or love to hate the game, than this is the place for you. 100 paces to the clubhouse of this very interesting course. The front 9 is nice and open and offers great views of the lakes and mountains, and the tighter back 9 has lots of blind tee shots which make it quite interesting.
It was an extremely enjoyable, and relaxing stay. It was really nice to only be an hour from home (Vancouver, BC) but feel like we had driven for hours to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. We recommend this stay for anyone who enjoys golfing, kayaking, swimming, boating, nature watching etc etc. We certainly will be back this year.
Thanks again Gary for making our stay comfortable and easy. We look forward to our next trip down!"

"Our family (elderly parents, sister, husband and I) were travelling to visit my mothers cousin in Bellingham.... we choose to stay at Fairhaven Classic, because it was located within walking distance to great shopping, good restaurants, historic buildings....and the house was adorable! It met all our needs, clean, comfortable, well stocked, in a safe neighbourhood, and charming. We were sad to leave after 2 nights, and hope we have the opportunity to return.
Favourite restaurants: Breakfast- Harris St Cafe, Lunch-Keenans, Supper-Skylarks, and Asian Bistro (delivery)
In the evening visit the boardwalk for sunset, moon rise, trains....music.
Favourite shops: A Lot of Flowers, Chuckanut Gallery and Garden.
If traveling from Victoria? Washington State Ferry Sidney to Anacortes!
Thankyou Amy for all your help in making our stay a wonderful memory!"
