About Rachel or Robin

This is our family home, built by Wayne and Nadine. We continue to love the house as our home, but spend most of the summer months running our business on San Juan Island. We love to travel ourselves and enjoy helping other travelers experience the best of the San Juan Islands.

There is a private "mother-in-law" apartment in the lowest level with a separate entrance that is sometimes occupied by my parent's. They travel quite a bit, but if it is a concern for you to have them present during your stay, please mention that in your inquiry so I can confirm whether they will be there or not during the times you are interested in renting.

Rachel or Robin purchased this house in 1989

Why Rachel or Robin chose San Juan Islands

Location! Location! Location!, and it is a very nice home. The open and spacious design easily accommodates both families in search of quality time, and individuals looking for solitude. Walk to the Galley for dinner, ride your bike to the village, or drive 15 minutes to the south end of the Island for one of our favorite hikes!

What makes this house unique

It is the perfect place to stay and relax. Really.

Perhaps the greatest benefit this home offers our guests, besides the view, is the layout - there is truly room for people to gather together as well as to be alone and enjoy some personal space. There are cozy spaces that take advantage of the beautiful views. One of our favorites is the library loft, overlooking the bay. Sunsets from this perch are enchanting.

Lovely spot on Lopez, great views

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying here with our 2 young kids (aged 2 and 4) over Labor Day weekend. Would come here again. Also, we love Lopez Island more generally as a great way to get off the grid a bit and enjoy some fantastic scenery and bike rides.


Outstanding views of the water/sunset etc. from lots of points in the house and the deck

Well equipped property, cooking provisions, good grill etc.

Fishermans Bay is a good location on the island, close to town (5 min car, 15 min bike, 40 min walk) and pretty central (though the island is small), but the property is still secluded

Very responsive and attentive owners

Spacious home

Good stock of DVDs/books/BluRays etc.

Good internet (especially considering you're on an island)

Big kitchen and washer/dryer


Interior a little dated in some places (though stellar views more than compensate in my view)

My family and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful home on Lopez Island. What a great way to spend time on this wonderful island. The home was very warm and cozy and the views from the house were amazing. Rachel made sure we all felt very comfortable. She provided us with wonderful information about the island. We highly recommend this house for a memorable vacation to Lopez Island. I wish we could have stayed longer. We are already thinking of making another trip here in the near future. Thank you Rachel and Spencer for a wonderful vacation!!

Relaxing, beautiful perfection

  • 5 of 5

This year, my family wanted a very specific vacation: a comfortable house where we could read, cook, play board games and relax in a beautiful location that offered lots of opportunities for exploring.

This place is it. The house itself is just marvelous. The enormous windows on the front of the home have a magnificent view of Fisherman's Bay and the islands beyond. So there's that. But inside, the house, too, beautiful, with comfortable furniture and lovely artwork. Upstairs, the library has two comfortable chairs with an interesting collection of books should you have forgotten to bring one of your own. I spent hours up there with a novel, a mojito and the view of Fisherman's Bay.

The kitchen is well stocked. We had no problems cooking whatever we wanted, and we did a lot of cooking, because we (well, I) like to cook. Lopez Village is a short bike ride (or drive, if you prefer) down the road, with grocery stores that had everything we needed, plus a few restaurants. Lopez doesn't have many restaurants, and we didn't go out much, but the ones we visited were tasty.

The beds are comfortable. I enjoyed sleeping until the unbelievably luxurious hour of 9am most days, which, for a guy who has to get up at 5am to go to work, was a vacation all in itself. The temperature in mid-July was perfect: cool nights and mild, warm days. A couple of nights, we made a fire in the pit outside for roasting s'mores and just staring at the flames. Heaven.

As for the island itself, when we weren't enjoying the house, we had a blast hiking, bicycling, kayaking and geocaching. I particularly enjoyed the Parscours exercise course up by the tennis courts and Lopez schools. Pull up bars, rings, parallel bars ... pretty much everything you need for a good calisthenics workout.

Truly, this house felt like home. One week was not enough. We'll be back next year, hopefully for two weeks!

In sum, I cannot recommend this place highly enough (though don't too many of you take me too seriously -- I really want that two weeks next year!)

Great Getaway - Great House

  • 5 of 5

Coming from Colorado to visit our daughter who lives in Seattle, we were looking for a place to meet and spend a long weekend with her and our other grown children. This place could not have been more perfect! The house had everything from a full kitchen that included anything you would need to cook a great meal, comfortable bedrooms and the loft library with the lounge chairs and a great view of the bay and the ocean beyond was awesome. The large front deck facing the bay was my favorite; with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening made a great place to gather and relax. The setting of the house provides privacy, but you are just a short drive (walk or bike) to Lopez Village if you need to pick up groceries or do a bit of shopping. Rachel was so helpful and the information provided in the house on things to do and places to see on Lopez Island was great. I would recommend this beautiful house and when we return to Lopez Island, we will stay here again.

Lopez Island is an outdoor paradise with a slow & friendly pace easily adjusted to. Islanders are friendly and helpful. Expect friendly waves from the locals as you explore the island. Lopez has tranquil beaches, scenic hiking, a busy village and pastoral drives that will leave you feeling as if you have stepped back in time and found home. All this and it still has every amenity one would come to expect on vacation!
