Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

What a gem and definitely on my favourites list. We came here for a long weekend with friends from Canada and it was just a perfect location. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly want and Bob could not have been any more welcoming. He was keen to make sure that we had a good time even helping us make dinner reservations at Roche Harbor.

His advise about taking the scenic route to the cottage was well advised and the views were spectacular.

My husband and son wanted to try fishing and used Bob's little row boat and actually caught a couple of rockfish so that satisfied out 13 yr old!

A very memorable weekend in a perfect location, thanks Bob!

Beauty, Comfort, Amenities, Location & View - All the Best

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to stay for the weekend. We brought folks with us from Mt Shasta & New Jersey, and both agreed it is one of the most beautiful places they have every been. The house expanded nicely to allow us to host extra teenagers. Beds comfortable, bathrooms fine, kitchen well equipped. Loved sitting on the private beach watching for whales at sunset, kayaking and the extra bonus fresh crabs brought to us by the owner. Will definitely go back. Did I mention the eagles?

Sunny August stay

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful location with a great view of the water. Saw Orcas whales from the front yard and small beach below nearly every day and deer and fox out biking. The house was very clean, the kitchen terrific for our gourmet meals, and the home was stocked with every comfort we needed for our family multi-generation vacation. Location was very quiet, enjoyed lounging in the hammock and large yard. Great location near Snug Harbor where we moored a boat, caught Dungeness Crabs, and took a kayak tour. Bob was great in guiding us toward the best places to crab and things to do.
