Beautiful stay, spacious and perfect

  • 5 of 5

Peggy and Gus were amazing hosts during our stay. This place really has it all, wonderful spacious layout, amazing bathroom with a dry sauna/shower/soaker tub, and enough space to comfortably fit 4 adults and two children. You are on the bottom floor of an amazing 6,000 sq.ft cabin, probably the largest on the lake. You almost don't want to leave, but then you are reminded that the lake is right there! Our hosts were very accommodating and it was great for my young son. Lots of space to play in and outdoors. Everything was excellent. Highly recommended!

Peggy & Gus are great people persons. That made our stay very personal and comfortable. The property was perfect as well as the company. This property is the perfect site for a family vacation. We will definitely return to this location. There is a local boat owner that rents nice pontoon's, good food, drinks & plenty of sites to see. Mt. Baker is a great visit as well as the San Juan Islands. Peggy & Gus are knowledgeable of the area attractions and were very helpful. Thank you both for a great Vacation. See you in 2018.

If you are looking for a beautiful place where to truly relax and recharge don't look any further. This place was perfect for my husband and I plus 2 young adult kids (17 and 24)..the house is wonderful, the location and the views are stunning..and Peggy and Guss were the kindest and most gracious hosts one could ever imagine. We could not have asked for a better place to spend a week enjoying nature and quiet..and yet we were just 10-15 minutes from town. We enjoyed the BBQ, the hot tub, the canoe, swimming in the lake, a whole day cruise to the San Juan islands, walks along the lake and simply sitting outside and taking in the beauty of this place. We highly recommend it!!! Thank you for opening up your piece of paradise for others to enjoy!! :))

The rental unit was outstanding. Really well constructed and exceeded my expectations. Great place, great way to mentally check out, and very kind hosts let us stay late on Sunday so we could enjoy the lake a bit longer. Will absolutely return.

You will not regret your stay here! AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I did a long term stay here as I am a travel nurse. The owners went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The place is amazing, as the other reviews have mentioned, especially the bathroom! But the VIEW is what will really do you in, especially with the absolutely perfect sunsets over Lake Whatcom! Short distance to Bellingham, but tucked away enough to not be in the middle of the hustle and bustle. We already want to plan a trip back! I truly cannot say enough about this place; thank you so much for having us Peggy and Gus!

Surprisingly Luxurious!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had an absolutely amazing Valentine's Day at this property. For the price, we expected a nice place. But what we got was pure luxury with an amazing view of Lake Whatcom. Not to mention, the hosts were very friendly and more than accommodating of our late arrival. We can not wait to visit again during the summer months so we can take advantage of the lake and the dock!

Thanks again!
