"My kids and I took our bikes over to Shaw on the ferry. Terry gave us a map of the island and marked out some great places for my young sons to encounter nature. It was fantastic and passenger bike trips inter island are free with your westbound ticket. Everyone was very kind and the island feels very remote. But you can catch a ferry over to orcas for dinner if you don't feel like cooking. The cabin was comfortable and well appointed, but we spent most of our time biking around the island;) I can't wait to go back!"

"We just spent a week at the beach, it was wonderful, we had 4 adults and 2 children and a dog. We didn't feel crowded and we had an extra cot to accommodate 1 child. Laura's place is beautiful and her choice of art was wonderful, a couple of small problems but my husband fixed them. Thank you again for letting us use your home

"We stayed for 4 nights. There were three of us (my hubby and me and a friend) and our two dogs. We stay at Orcas every year over Easter. We usually stay at West Beach resort because they are dog friendly and right on the ocean facing west. This year we could not get our regular cabin and so I started searching for rentals that took dogs.
I want to say first of all how much I appreciate it when I can find a nice property that accepts dogs and is a great place. I wish more pet owner options were available. It was a beautiful old home just around the corner from town so we could take walks every morning to the bakeries (Roses for fabulous bread and Brown Bear for their bear claws). Perfectly situated on the bay with great views of the water. It was nice and clean and very roomy. It has a queen bedroom downstairs along with a bathroom and upstairs had a room with 4 bunk beds, another room with one bed, and the master with a queen bed, sitting area and very roomy. There is also a bathroom upstairs too. Large kitchen with great views of the water, outside deck, a lower patio facing the ocean and a lawn equipped with its very own resident large Easter bunny!
Loved the house. If I had a "wish list" or things that could be improved they would be minor, but here goes. It would have been great if there was an outdoor fire pit whether wood burning or gas so we could have sat out at night. I missed not having that. A couple of chaise lounge chairs on the patio for napping would be great too. It would be nice for the main room upstairs to have a king bed for room, especially with a tall husband. I think the upstairs tub was jetted somehow, but it did not work and there was the slightest musty smell when you turned the corner to go up the second set of stairs. It was faint, but there.
Don't let this deter you as I said this was all minor. I would stay there again in a minute, we had such a great time and it is a beautiful place in a beautiful location. For the 4th of July fireworks you would not have to leave the deck to see the show (assuming they still do fireworks). Thanks again for the enjoyable stay and for being dog friendly!!!!!!!!"

"We've rented homes across this country and this is at the top of our list. Anacortes is a great jumping off point for San Juan Island adventures and staying at this 'cottage' makes it even more desirable. Read the other reviews - I don't want to repeat except to share that these were our favorites about the place:
- Top notch, well-appointed kitchen - a must for those that love to cook like we do.
- Nice wine glasses - seriously, I can't tell you how many places we've rented that don't offer these! There's even other bar ware for you mix-ologists.
- Gorgeous views and private hot tub.
- Comfy beds and a nice shower plus plenty of towels.
- Conveniently located to anything you'd like to do from cycling to hiking and kayaking to shopping.
- So lovely and homey you won't want to leave. A perfect rainy day place to curl up with a good book or your latest art project.
- Nice communications from owner too.
One thing to note (and it totally wasn't an issue for us) is that the bedrooms and main bath are located up a turning victorian house staircase. Good to know if someone in your party has mobility issues."
