Beautiful and Relaxing
"We were in need of a quiet weekend away and that is what we got! Plus much more. The view was incredible. The house was very comfortable and we had everything that we needed. Spent a little time in town but mostly just relaxed. Hot tub was perfect. Cooked steaks on the grill. Sat on the deck.Slept good. All was wonderful. Thank you so much!! We will come back in the spring."

"I had the wonderful experience of staying at Tranquil Cove with a group of dear friends. We literally didn't have to leave because the house and surroundings provided us with a great, relaxing weekend retreat. The house was spacious, airy, comfortable and had beautiful views from both floors. The kitchen was well-equipped and there was plenty of room to spread out and relax. We will definitely return! Thank you!!"

"My husband and I stayed here with our two teenage daughters. If you want to see orca whales - this house is a must! Within an hour of arriving, we saw a huge pod of orcas from the deck! My girls were in heaven! We had hoped to see at least one orca on our trip and we ended up seeing them almost everyday from the deck - sometime a couple times in one day! The deck is great - we spent a lot of time just watching the boats go by and enjoying the sunsets! One day we heard a noise off the side of the deck and looked down to see a mama deer and her baby laying down in the grass. We also saw a bald eagle fly by. The house is nice and well stocked. Plenty of room for everyone. My girls enjoyed the piano too. We did a kayaking trip and a whale watching tour, but the house was by far the best place to see orcas for us!"

"We stayed for five nights in September 2015 and were highly satisfied with the experience. A hotel room gets relatively cramped with four adults; for a better price this 3-bed + airbed, 2-bath cottage provides complete and wonderful comfort. The owners built it themselves in 2007 and their pride shows in excellent management and elegant furnishings. (They also own/operate Crystal Seas Kayaking and San Juan Excursions, and offer 10% discounts to guests here.) The house is fresh and luxurious, a perfect rental home, and as clean as can be.
The central location near key roads on the island is most convenient, and lovely too: the eight minute drive from Friday Harbor is full of pastoral beauty along the San Juan Valley Road (Beaverton is less scenic). Lake Margo is not visible but a short walk away on a well-maintained path (cute sign at the front; fall colors visible; bit steep at the end). Note that campfires are not allowed on the grounds.
For us, there could not have been a better choice of lodging. We give our highest recommendation."
