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 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."

"Mud Bay Cabin is an idyllic and tranquil vacation retreat; nestled in the pines on the southern part of Lopez Island. Karleen is the most generous and accommodating host. The cabin was perfect for the two of us. My boyfriend and I were visiting from Phoenix; celebrating his 50th birthday! We couldn't have been more happier with our vacation accommodations. The people of Lopez Island were truly very warm and friendly. We got to experience the 4th of July on the island; from the Fun Walk/Run, to the 4th of July Parade and barbeque. All of the parks are not to bee missed! Wonderful hiking trails and spectacular views...all a stone's throw from the Mud Cabin. Karleen gave us great insight on the areas to see...she even shared with us her personal experience of seeing Orcas off Iceberg Point the two nights before we left. We were able to retrace her steps the last night of our stay and we were witness to a doe and buck that crossed our path, as well as
20-30 Orcas swimming right off of Iceberg Point. It was a spectacular climax to our unforgettable stay on this wonderful island and vacation retreat at Mud Bay Cabin. I hope we are able to make it back here soon! Karleen, thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us."
