About the property

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Handcrafted timber frame guest cabin on beautiful Westcott Bay. Watch eagles, seals, and otters from your deck, or walk down to the beach to collect clams and oysters for dinner. All the amenities of Roche Harbor (shops, restaurants, swimming, tennis, and more) are only a 5 minute walk away. There is a steep ladder to the loft.

At the end of a long and active day, take a sunset kayak journey out into the bay, and listen as the silence of the islands falls. Truly a place to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Definitely could use some TLC

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Westcott Bay for our mini-moon. The cabin was overall lovely and we had a great time exploring the island. However, there were a few issues that decreased comfort during our stay. First, the fridge upon arrival was visibly very dirty and stinky. We were a little shocked at how dirty it was since rest of the cabin was clean. We had to clean it to keep our perishables cold, and it was not very welcoming. Second, the alarm on the side of the bigger cabin on same property continued to go off intermittently during the night for both of the nights we stayed. During our otherwise a quiet getaway, it prevented us from falling asleep and when we did, it woke us up several times during the night. This also impacted our stay negatively. Third, as the other reviewer has stated, the cabin overall could use some TLC. the utensils were old and dirty, propane tanks were all nearly empty, and the dock was not well-maintained. Lastly, I have contacted Kathy via email but she did not offer much of a solution which was very disappointing. Customer service is very important to me and I would not recommend her properties based on this alone.

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Everything is so comfortable in this cozy little cabin. Even the ladder to the loft added an element of fun. We were able to go kayaking with the available kayaks, build a wonderful fire on Saturday night, and generally spend quality time together in a clean, comfortable, efficient home. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to reconnect with your partner.

Awesome weather

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, enjoyed the wild life and the views, saw herons, deer, and a fox! We had dinner one night at duck soup, just a few miles down the road, which was superb!

Fun weekend getaway

Beautifully crafted cabin with everything we needed. We loved being able to use the bikes and kayaks. Great location in quiet bay close to Roche Harbor.

Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this cabin! It was clean, had basically everything you need including 2 very nice road bikes, with helmets!, oars , kayaks and mud boots/buckets for clam digging right out your front door! Barbecues, propane included....even a gas fire pit on your porch to sit by at night.

I loved kayaking right in front of your cabin! The sea otters (I think) were visitors every morning and afternoon, so it was fun to be out on the kayak when they came up to greet you. They could have been seals, but not sure.

We went to the westcott bay oyster company and picked our own oysters, took them home with a fresh loaf of San Juan Island bread (excellent) and barbecued the oysters for dinner. Luckily I had anticipated this so I brought some home made cocktail sauce and butter with us from home. Roche Harbor resort, really is about 5 minutes away. Easy walk also. There is a charming grocery store there with everything you need for a gourmet dinner at home. Lots of cute shops too. Most close down in October so be aware of that.

I would have rated this place a 5 star but it needs to be disclosed that the bedroom is upstairs in the loft, which they do. If you want privacy, I would not recommend another couple to stay with you. There is a futon downstairs but it's open to below, so you would hear everything. Plus the ladder going up to loft bedroom was kind of steep. Very well made and sturdy but for someone with physical issues, this would not work. I was nervous about getting up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom,, which is downstairs. I am physically fit but tend to sometimes stumble around at night (lol! ) so be aware.

The house next door was not an issue. We met the neighbors both times who were really fun but everyone respected privacy.

All that said, I would definetly stay again but with the ladder in mind.

Thank you!
