  • We will be back!

    "My high school girlfriends and I stayed at Rutabaga, an absolutely charming place on Orcas Island, San Juan Islands, in Washington State. We totally enjoyed staying at the Bunk House and Boat Shed. The two buildings were filled with wonderful old artifacts from the fifties and earlier. (For the first hour we were there, I took many pictures of all the cool things!) The kitchen was on the side porch outside the Bunkhouse. There was a fire pit not far from the buildings for those who wanted to sit around the fire at night. The hosts were great! We had a very relaxing and fun time at this wonderful place."

  • An amazing place to explore the wonders of Orcas!

    "The Gnome House is such an incredibly unique and amazing place. What Meg and Bob have created on their property is so wonderful. We went with our young (10 and 9 years old) niece and nephew. The Gnome House itself is fantastic. Just the attention to detail with the building construction is incredible. It's not a fancy place (think more cabin-like than fancy resort), but it has everything you need and is quite comfortable. But the real charm of this place is the property. The kids spent every day down at the pond on the property catching frogs and even swimming. There's a playset with the most amazing view of Deer Harbor. There are acres and acres of trails to explore, pick blackberries. And even a permaculture garden! In the evenings it was roasting smores in the fire pit or sitting in the hot tub under the stars. And Bob was so kind, teaching the kids how to catch frogs and making sure they were having a fantastic time. Really, it was a vacation to remember and we'll definitely be back."

  • Good for Large Groups

    "Maggie's Manor is well equipped for large groups (we had 10 people). Kitchen is well stocked. There were plenty of towels. Lots of seating, deck is great, and fire pit out back was nice. It is a very peaceful place with a great view of Deer Harbor. That being said, there were a few things that were a little funky. The kitchen and upstairs bathroom had carpeting! Not a good idea. You can't sweep it and who knows what is in it. Kinda gross. There are two sinks in the kitchen island which seems like a good idea but there are no sprayer nozzles so you can't clean out the sink without pouring pitchers of water in them. Plus the faucets swing out over the counter so if you accidently turn on the water with them like that you've just run water all over the counter and floor. The water pressure was too low for the main kitchen sink nozzle to spray so again no way to clean out the sink without a lot of effort. Garbage disposal doesn't really work; caused a blockage and the sink wouldn't drain, had to do some ad hoc plumbing work. Doors don't close very well. Main floor bathroom could use some updating. So, some things that could be fixed to make it totally top notch. But, nothing was a show stopper and it was a great weekend."

  • Serenity and Space!

    "Everyone was impressed with the beautiful décor and thoughtful amenities in this lovely home. I must admit we were a little overwhelmed with the notebooks of rules and directions for everything you can imagine, but we appreciated the detailed instructions and expectations outlined for us. The owners were quick to make amends for a slight misunderstanding about our desired use of the sofa bed in the lower master bedroom and it was so nice to meet them personally when they came by Friday night. The home is spacious and the view is spectacular and serene. I especially enjoyed late nights sitting on the deck watching the clouds move over the water. I haven't heard quiet like that in years. I wish we had known to reserve the firewood ahead of time so we could have enjoyed a fire in the fireplace, but we survived without it and entertained ourselves just fine. Thank you for a memorable experience!"
