A Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

"Peaceful Island Retreat" is everything its name implies. If you're looking for a vacation stay that's a little off the beaten path - then this is for you! Located in a quiet residential area of Lopez Island, this cabin-in-the-woods really became our home away from home. We couldn't wait to get back from a day of hiking or boating to relax on the deck, watching the sun go down and listening to the wind murmuring in the monolithic trees all around us! The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, and all the basic kitchen necessities are provided. (Just be sure to plan for an extra 20 minutes or so in driving time when scheduling other island activities.)

Quiet, peaceful and remote area

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed. It was a good place to begin biking trips around the island and a pleasant drive to Lopez Village. Loved our stay.

Pretty, worth the price, scenery beautiful, loved secluded area. Nice & quiet, deer roamed property.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was further from town than we thought it would be, but it wasn't a big deal. Would have liked a larger TV in the living room with more than three channels that only showed shows from the 1960s. Other than that we were very happy.

Small, clean, quiet

  • 4 of 5

House is small, quiet, and clean. It is a bit remote. It took about 20 minutes to drive to the ferry, but once the ferry schedule was figured out, it was a matter of planning the drive time. Surrounding area is beautiful with wild-life frequently in the yard. House is simple, no luxuries here. Salt, pepper, tea, and aluminum foil are the only commodities in the kitchen along with basic cooking tools. There are no DVD movies on the shelves, only VHS, so bring your own. Simple and quiet, relaxing.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found our vacation home quiet and relaxing. In general we leave the kitchen clean and empty so that each guest can fill the refrigerator etc with their own food and supplies The house is stocked with dishwasher detergent, dishwashing liquid, sponges, paper towels, toilet paper and laundry soap. There is also a toaster, microwave, blender, coffee maker, Propane grill and a full array of dishes, glassware and pots and pans. It is true that our location is approximately 20 minutes from the ferry dock. Most of our guests chose our home because it is a quiet location Yes we have some vintage VHS tapes. There is also a store called Islandale which 5 minutes away from the house where you can rent a variety of DVDs. The Internet at the house works for streaming videos as well.

Nice setting

  • 4 of 5

Had a good stay but the requirement to take out garbage/recycling when the dump is only open very limited hours was a hassle (especially since there is already a cleaning fee and we had to adhere to the ferry schedule).

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the infrastructure on the island is an inconvenience to our guests. Unfortunately this is how the island operates. Most guests and residents plan ahead and deposit as much trash as possible when they go to the village. That way upon leaving they only have to carry one small trash bag off the island. There is a dumpster conveniently located at the Anacortes ferry dock Thank you for your feedback and we are happy you enjoyed your stay

Car: recommended

Beautiful peaceful island life. Enjoy clamming, kayaking, hiking and biking. Casual dining in town or barbeque at the house while watching the island's exquisite sunsets. This is your opportunity to relax and be in nature
