About Ruth Nisco and Scott Lowry
Scott and Ruth met 2 years ago thru an online dating site and have been together ever since. They discovered that they shared the dream of getting out of the rat race and settling somewhere out of the city. Scott and Ruth love getting creative in the outdoors; gardening, animals, photography, trail blazing, and the idea of creating a homestead are some of their passions. Scott is a native Washingtonian and graduate of UW. He worked many years at Boeing in Washington and Arizona, he has also been a firefighter, a scuba diver, and the best barista ever! Scott is also one of the biggest Seahawks fans on the planet! Ruth was born in Hawaii and also lived in Washington D.C., but most of her life has been in the Seattle area. She does prefer the sunny life of Hawaii, but has become enchanted with the rainy forest of Harstine Island! Ruth recently graduated with a degree in graphic design and finds her new life on the island inspirational.
Ruth Nisco and Scott Lowry purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Ruth Nisco and Scott Lowry chose Shelton
Last summer Ruth & Scott started looking for some property to purchase away from the big city of Seattle. Their search lead them to the little known island called Harstine. They booked a weekend at the Huckleberry House, then owned by Jim and Wilma. It was love at first site and to their amazement, Jim and Wilma were looking to sell! They were hoping to find someone who loved and appreciated the property and who also would keep the VRBO cabin going. After renting the main house and managing the cabin for them for the last six months, Ruth & Scott have been able to purchase the property and are now the proud owners of the Huckleberry Cabin and Trails. Ruth and Scott enjoy sharing their beautiful piece of earth with others, and hope that everyone who visits the Huckleberry Cabin feels the magic too!

Cute cabin in the woods
We enjoyed our stay at the Huckleberry Cabin. It was peaceful and a much needed getaway as a couple. We also brought our little dog with us. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed. Loved using the hot tub too. We appreciated the delicious zucchini apple bread Ruth left to welcome us with. Would definitely stay again!
Wonderful place to escape.
A sisters trip back to our home town for a nieces bridal shower was perfect at the cabin. The cabin had everything we needed. The setting and decor was beautiful.
We enjoyed our stay so much while I was there I booked it for the wedding trip.
Ruth and Scott thoughtly furnished the cabin with everything you could want inside and out. Thank you! See you again soon.
Loved our stay at the Huckleberry cabin. Had a great time exploring Harstine Island and really liked the private beach access. Good location to depart from daily to explore the Hood Canal and peninsula areas. Hot tub was perfect after hikes and late at night. Ruth and Scott were great hosts and helped us feel right at home. Thank you! Stayed 6/27-29
We were greeted by Ruth. She showed us the cabin and told us of the beach access. In the forest is a trail that is easy to follow. A hot tub is available near by. We gathered oysters, explored the island, and ate lunch in Shelton at Blondie's. We look forward to our next visit to Hastine Island. Thank you Ruth and Scott for sharing your slice of heaven with us.

Restorative, Relaxing Nature Retreat
My solo retreat at the Huckleberry was wonderfully restorative. I enjoyed exploring the wooded trails on the property (often accompanied by the owners' adorable cat Timber) and the island. If you don't feel like unplugging completely, there is cable and netflix to keep you entertained. The owners were thoughtful and kind and even left a loaf of zucchini and lemon bread for me. If you need a break, this is a wonderful place to stay.
Lovely place to stay at
The Huckleberry house is lil gem on the island. It has everything you need but the most important thing is, that place is quiet and very relaxing. We really enjoyed the hot tub especially at night with the disco lights on. The hosts are super friendly and will accommodate all your needs.
Ruth, thank you for your special zucchini and apple bread you shared with us. It was delicious.
Thank you Ruth and Scott for your hospitality.
Hopefully we'll be back soon
