Recent Northwest & Islands reviews

  • 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."

  • Incredibly Special Stay in Beautiful Location with All the Comforts of Home

    "We stayed at this beautiful home over the Thanksgiving holiday week and want to give it our very highest recommendation. The property has a lovely view looking out over the water -- in short, staying there is "good for the soul." The house is equipped with all necessities, a terrific Franklin stove (with plenty of firewood) and gorgeous floor to ceiling windows, in the Lindall prow design. Every morning when we woke up -- the view, and the peace and quiet just took our breath away. There is also a terrific hot tub, and we even had an eagle fly over us while we were soaking away. The beach is just a short walk away and whenever we went down to the headland, we would see harbor seals just a few yards away. There is lots to do on Orcas Island, but we found little reason to leave. Suffice it to say, we had a memorable holiday, but in addition, the owners, Anita and Conrad were the best !! They were always helpful and immediately responsive. We had travel issues and at every turn, Anita found a way to make things work out for us. We want to thank Anita and Conrad for sharing their home and helping our family create lifelong memories."

  • Great Energy!

    "This place has excellent Energy! Although the decor is a bit dated (1970's), nobody in our group seemed to mind. We LOVED the place. The views are incredible and it is very close to Skyline Marina. I personally stayed in the loft (I snore ;) and it was my favorite part of the house. My ONLY cautionary note is parking in the driveway. It is extremely steep and requires a bit of mad driving skills. Especially in a big truck with 28 scuba tanks :) I would not recommend this place for anyone with mobility issues, as this place has lots of stairs and a steep landing"

  • Everything we had expected and more

    "Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay. We were pleased to have access to the tennis and basketball courts right next door. The home was very clean, spacious and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable and all linen and towels were in new condition. We would definitely stay here again."
