  • Stayed here twice, and will stay again!

    "What a spectacular summer! We drove up and heard: "just leave everything in the car and come see the whales!" So we did, and all across the horizon were orcas, jumping, splashing, playing. You could hear the "thwack" from their tails across the water. Later, when it was quieter, you could hear the "whoosh" as they breathed out. And EVERY SINGLE DAY after that, they came back to visit. As did the eagles, flying fast, then swooping into the nearby trees. A juvenile bald eagle came real close, just watching us, as we watched him. So quiet here, you could hear the kayakers, out for the sunset paddle, down in the water just below the deck. They waved at us; we waved back. It's a big house, three levels, including a separate (and cool) basement deck that wraps around the house). Beautifully furnished, with some whimsical and some spectacular paintings. And you won't believe the kitchen. A super-fancy gas stove with burners so precise they turn on and off by themselves to keep an even heat. And absolutely everything you could want in kitchen equipment, even a pair of spare beaters for the hand mixer (in case one paid gets lost, I guess). Very quiet dishwasher. Hard to find the first time, but easy once you've been there once, so get directions. Adds to the quiet. Such a wonderful time. We've done it before, and we'll do it again."

  • Kathy,Denver, Colorado

    "We just returned from an extraordinary trip to the San Juan Islands. What made it so special was this fabulous house and it's incredible location on Mitchell Bay. Every morning we would greet the family of deer that came into the back yard off the deck. When we weren't lounging on the deck, we were enjoying the restaurant equipped kitchen, large enough for 8 chefs! The Master Suite was truly a highlight, as well. This is a keeper for next year!"

  • Relaxing Retreat

    "We just returned from a week-long stay at Serenity Pond, and had a perfect vacation. My 2 young kids loved playing in the yard. They found tiny frogs, slugs, dragon flies, and saw deer and foxes on a daily basis. The house was amazingly clean and organized. Sylvia, the owner, was very responsive and helpful in providing suggestions of things to do in the area, how to catch the ferry, etc. Very charming stay! Thank you and we hope to be back again for another visit!"

  • Perfect location for us!

    "We were excited when we booked this property because of its proximity to prime whale watching locations. It did not disappoint. The first night we sat on the deck and watched the Orcas in the straight. We also had the company of a deer and a fox. We loved the location because it was far enough away from the town that we did not have to deal with crowds but close enough that a run into the grocery store was easy peasy. It was also a perfect distance from the many areas we liked to frequent. The house was exactly as portrayed in the pictures. The kitchen was well-stocked and he rooms were comfortable. We enjoyed making use of the porch and the grill. The house was plenty big enough to accommodate the three couples that stayed. We also appreciated the owners looking out for us and letting us know when the whales were spotted near our location. It was a wonderful place and we look forward to returning."
