Beautiful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This house is charming and cozy, with spectacular views and a lovely garden (I can only imagine how much more beautiful it would be in spring). It worked great for my family (mother and sister and I). Mom has mobility issues, so the fact that her walker worked was a big plus. The access to the bathroom is tight so it might not work for all people with mobility problems, but we really enjoyed our time here.

This little cottage was more than we could have hoped for. My mother-in-law, our two college age kids, my husband and I couldn't have stayed anywhere more perfect. The photos don't capture the feeling this place will give you. My husband could have stayed in front of the windows all day watching the shipping vessels, barges, tugboats and fishing boats. I loved the flowers and cottage gardens. My mother-in-law with her limited mobility was content just to sit with her book in front of the windows. We walked down their path to the beach, explored low tide, and walked to Dash Point State Park where a maze of trails gave us more to explore. We hiked a loop trail on Mt. Rainer, rode a ferry from Anacortes to Friday Harbor, and enjoyed other sites in closer proximity. If you're looking for the feeling of comfort away from home, this is the place. Their old family photos and charming antique furniture added to the warmth that filled this house like a warm embrace. We hope that one day we have the opportunity to return.

This place was beyond our expectations. We will be back for sure!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared this vacation with our best friends and the time spent here was unforgettable. The photos do not do the landscape, the scenery, or the home itself justice. It had everything we needed and more. The owners were very accommodating and made the entire trip, from booking to farewell, an amazing experience. We will all definitely be returning!

House is very well kept and has amazing views and tons of things to do/see. Family friendly

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. Views to die for and so much outdoor space. Access to the beach, yard games, gazebo, fire pit. A perfect place to stay to forget the hustle and bustle of life. Super accommodating and had toys and things for my little ones as well as a fully stocked kitchen, including items for a picnic on the beach. I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a getaway

Perfect location on Puget Sound

Great view of the Sound with panoramic windows. Perfect size for a couple or small family. Access to the beach is a very pleasant walk. Owners are next door for any needs. Beautiful drive to area Sound communities.
