Waterhouse, Take Me Away.........
"As I am hiding in my bedroom back in Texas, listening to a house full of shrieking teenagers, I am transporting myself back in time (one month) to the Waterhouse. My husband and I stayed for three nights. We holed up at the Waterhouse except for a few excursions into town to shop at King's Market (we did stop there right off the ferry but needed to add a little to our groceries once we decided we were definitely staying put), antique and used book shopping, our Christmas ornament for our travel tree, and finding Joe to make my beautiful meat and cheese boards (which is a whole 'nother story). We had all the windows open the first day due to our luggage unloading and unpacking but quickly cranked them back down and had the fireplace going, which quickly got lit every morning for coffee and was great to have on at night with wine. We were able to prepare wonderful meals due to all the utensils available and that wickedly cool propane cookstove! At our daily treks to the cove, we found starfish, sea glass, awesome driftwood, and beautiful rocks. Oh, and the grass around the property was such a lovely emerald green! Eagles, ducks, sea lions (at least that's what my husband thinks he saw), and deer came to visit us, too. The house is situated on the property so that all of the rooms have a great view of the ocean right outside the windows. It was great to wake up and look out the window first thing laying in bed to see the water. I only wish we could have experienced an awesome lightning storm and/or whales. I already feel relaxed just picturing all of this again. Suzanne was awesome!! Thank you so much for being so trusting with your property to allow people to visit and enjoy it! We will be back."

"The house was more like a home than a rental house. The rooms were spacious with nice furnishings and decorations. The kitchen was well stocked and it was so nice having a gas grill on the deck. The three level home allowed for everyone to spread out and have plenty of living space. The downstairs foozeball table was an added bonus. It was so nice to have lots of board games and books at the house. The views from the balconys were beautiful and the kids loved taking out the row boat and finding clams and oysters when the tide went out. Dennis, Susan and Grace were most gracious hosts, always available to help or answer any questions. We loved our time on SJI and were so comfortable and relaxed at the home. The house is situated on a cute lane off a main road and close enough to town to run to the store but off the main road so it was very quiet and peaceful. The kids also loved seeing the deer in the yard and the rabbits. We can't wait to go back and would definitely stay here next time."

"We had a wonderful time staying for four nights in early August. It was easy to find and close to Friday Harbor which was very helpful when catching the early morning ferries. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, the hot tub was amazing, the kids loved playing pool...it was perfect for our vacation. We were able to pick blackberries at the end of the driveway and down the lane. We made homemade blackberry syrup for our pancakes and ice cream. Deer were a common site around the house. The stars filled the sky at night. We felt very relaxed in this peaceful, secluded home. And, it was within ten minutes of the ferry terminal which was very convenient."

"My adult Granddaughter and I were so comfortable here. Nothing was left out that we needed. This cabin is remarkably secluded yet just a walk away from town so the experience on San Juan Island is pure and lovely. Not to mention that Phoebe called to make sure everything was as we expected."
