Thanksgiving getaway

  • 4 of 5

A pretty good location for a winter, or winter-like, getaway. The spacious rooms and waterfront location were hard to beat in an area of calm waters with barely a current anywhere. Watching the weather come in from the southern view was a treat. The fold-out sofa bed in the basement was a great help for extra bedding. All appliances worked well for a Thanksgiving situation. There were issues with some burned-out outdoor lights over the garage and the front door, and they weren't entirely essential.

If you're unfamiliar with the area, as we were, finding it might be a challenge under harsh conditions, but it is easy to get to once you know it. The variety and diversity of wildlife, especially in the off-season, was fantastic.

It worked out well for our family situation where diverse parties came from all directions! I'd do it again under daylight conditions. Come see it any time of the year!

Wonderful northwest getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed here several times in winter, fall, and summer i will definitely be back. Well kept cozy home with beautiful views. Beds are comfortable with well stocked kitchen and movie collection. Love eating out on upper and lower deck. Great for relaxing and enjoying the beach. Enjoyed Kayaking and near by hiking trails. Always want to stay at least 3 nights a weekend goes by too fast. Great vacation home!

Great Location!

This 3 bedroom home on Pickering Pass is perfect for a family get away. The house is a few steps away from the beach, the neighborhood is quiet. The property is well maintained, very clean, the owner is accessible is there are any questions or problems.
