One of our best anniversaries

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the property for our anniversary. Grant was a very nice and hospitable person who made us feel welcome the second we arrived. He showed us around and we even walked our dogs around for a bit before he left. Our evening was very quiet and peaceful and it was exactly what we were looking for. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet relaxing getaway.

There are not enough good things I can say about this place!

  • 5 of 5

Grant accommodated me with a last minute request and went above and beyond. When we arrived at the house, he had the wood stove already warming the house and the cedar hot tub ready to go as well! Grant is full of character and I would have loved to sit and chat with him more about his life and experiences. I want to live in the house—or at least stay awhile! The house is full of SO much character, from the tin ceilings, to the driftwood rocking chairs, and rock floor. Lummi Island has so many beautiful areas to explore. I look forward to going back soon!

Sweet well thought out cabin

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! Very cozy and comfortable. The beds were great and we could spread out ...bigger then it looks . Grant thought of everything ! Right down to a strainer for spaghetti. The hot tub is ridiculous. It takes a bit just kp feeding it . The woodstove works beautifully. We didn't want to leave . Great dog property too ..some room out back and can just walk up to the tower w them . Great stay !
