Very well hosted with everything you need, super clean and the linens so lovely.
We planned this getaway as a mini honeymoon after our wedding on Christmas eve. The home was very well cared for and cozy. The owner had turned on the living room gas fireplace and got the front end of the house warm when we arrived late into the evening. We had super easy access, well written instructions. Unfortunately I had gotten food poisoning and our first night was not fun, I needed to get to the doctor and we were worried my new husband was the next person to get ill. We only stayed one out of the two nights booked. Haven't heard a response yet from owner if we might get a refund for the other night not used. We couldn't sleep in the bedrooms because there was no heat via the baseboards (which smelled as if they were going to catch on fire) and we couldn't get the portable heaters going. We both slept in the living room close to the gas fireplace. It was unfortunate experience. This place would be better in the summer. Again the house is outfitted with everything and an adorable "Bar" area but the heat issue in the bedrooms for winter use definitely needs to be addressed.
I went over and checked the heat in the bedrooms. There is no thermostat as they are electric baseboard and each one has a knob on it to adjust the heat. They were working just fine. I could detect no smell from them. I don't understand what might have gone on that you did not get any heat. I have had many guests stay at the home during the winter with no problems. I am also available to correct any issues that might arise. I wish I had known, I would have sent someone over to take a look. I know it is disappointing when you have to cancel. We do have a cancellation policy and it is posted on the site. I have to adhere to it. It is 60 days for full refund.
Property/home was well maintained; and everything we expected/hoped for
Our over-all experience with this property was 5 star; it met our expectations/requirements completely. Home was well equipped with needed amenities and the personal touches and information provided through out were a very nice addition.
Great open space and you have the best view of Baker
Had a great stay with my family. Plenty of space and great open kitchen. Loved being right on the water!
Great house - great location - great hosts! We will be back!!!
Lummi Island, Grandma's Beach House: a well-cared for, beautifully appointed and sited house.
Virginia Barry has put together an artful, comfortable house on Lummi Island and we enjoyed a three night respite there midweek in early August. Everything we could have wanted or needed was provided as a matter of course. The setting, with views of Mount Baker, was icing on the cake. We marveled at the quiet and at the soothing sounds of water lap-lapping on the shore. We looked forward to daily deer sightings and to star-gazing at night, far from city lights.
The best beach on the Island!
We loved our stay at "Grandma's Cottage " on Lummi Island. The Cottage was well stocked with all the comforts of home. We only needed our food and clothes. We spent most of our time walking the beach and enjoying the incredible scenery. Evenings were spent playing cards, laughing and making memories. This was a wonderful place to relax and step back from the worries of the world. Nicely decorated, comfy beds and plenty of areas for visiting. Every Grandma should have a cottage, even if it is for just a weekend!
Casino, 7 minute ferry ride then approximately 6 miles. Hike to the top of Lummi Mt. and get an absolutely spectacular view. There are quite a few walking trails in the area. Bring your hand held GSP and go Geocaching. It is a great 'scavenger hunt' for adults and children.
