Lovely three week holiday for family with young kids
"We had such a wonderful summer holiday at the Wren's Nest! A lovely home in a quiet nook on the beautiful south end of Lopez Island. "Our" Aleck Beach was a great place to play every day and we enjoyed the close proximity to Watmough Bay, Iceberg Point and Shark Reef Sanctuary, our favorite spots on the island. The house is outfitted wonderfully for a family with young kids and had everything we needed, plus charm. We enjoyed mornings on the deck and the kids played Sorry in the treehouse. I loved the butterfly garden and we spent a lot of time in the communal kitchen making feasts with the local meats, fish and produce from the island. Many thanks for a wonderful stay. We hope to return to the Wren's Nest another summer!"

"We came here for a girls getaway. It was clean and cozy with amazing views! Matt was very friendly and had many suggestions for things to do and sights to see. We were able to use the row boat, hike and visit the winery. We had a great time. Thank you Matt!"

"My husband, daughter and I stayed at the Wildwood cabin adjoining the Sea Spray Cottage for a week over the Christmas Holidays. We have stayed on Lopez for years as our favorite Seattle getaway, but this was our first time with this property.
When we arrived the house was warm and cozy and the view was magnificent. The kitchen was well appointed with all the items we needed for farm fresh meals each day. The bed were soft and inviting and we could see the stars under the skylights at night.
The beach was beautiful and our daughter enjoyed collecting little shiny rocks and driftwood. She also enjoyed exploring the gardens and playing on the large grassy lawn.
We met the owners midway through our vacation. Michelle was so helpful with the booking and even brought us homemade cookies upon her arrival.
We will definitely be back!"

"We wanted a quiet, peaceful getaway and this ON-the-bay cottage delivered! As each day faded, we kicked our shoes off, opened up a bottle of wine and watched the gentle bay slowly change hues as the sun sank beyond the horizon. After a day exploring the island's many nearby natural attractions -- Spencer Spit, Iceberg Point, Watmough Bay -- we would return "home," sink into the comfortable furnishings and extend a toast to our good fortune in finding this one-of-a-kind property. A short walk away, we enjoyed the Love Dog Cafe, shopped at the Lopez Market and purchased delectable, drinkable souvenirs from the Lopez Island Vineyard. All in all, the Bay Inlet Beach Cottage is the perfect week-long escape for the weary traveler. We hope to make the trek from Iowa to this island gem again and again."
