"My wife and I are great fans of vacation rentals and have had some truly wonderful experiences, especially in the Pacific Northwest. After staying at the Samish Island Waterfront Cabin we now have a new favorite. Travelers and vacationers obviously have their own particular interests and expectations when selecting a vacation rental property, I know we certainly do. For us, our priority criteria are cleanliness, comfort, location, and accommodating owners. The Samish Island Cabin more than met all four. We couldn’t have been happier with this charming little cottage. This is one of the most relaxing places we’ve ever rented. And wow what a view!
As is almost always the case with VRBO properties, the Samish Island Cabin was well furnished, provided all the linens, dishes and utensils we needed, and had available all sorts of guides and brochures about Samish Island and the surrounding Skagit Valley. The Samish Island information was very helpful because this was our first time to travel to the area. We will certainly return. Samish Island residents are among the friendliest we’ve ever met. The Wi-Fi worked very well (which has become increasingly important to us of late). We stayed at Samish Island at the hottest time of the year and were cool and comfortable and didn’t miss at all not having air conditioning.
As other reviewers have mentioned, Jennifer was terrific. She is pleasant, friendly, accommodating, generous, and knows the area very well. She recommended the bakery in the quaint nearby town of Edison and what a recommendation it was. Those folks have some of the best freshly baked goods we have had anywhere. And we highly recommend breakfast at the Edison Café. This is an unassuming little place in Edison that is frequented by locals and serves one of the best and most substantial breakfasts you could ask for. Don’t miss it if breakfast is one of your favorite meals (it is mine).
We highly recommend the Samish Island Waterfront Cabin and can hardly wait to return for another stay. Dolores and Glen, Hemphill, Texas"
