  • Amazing views and tranquility

    "We stayed for a week in early October, the views and tranquility of this place were awesome. The house is about a 20 minute drive from Friday Harbor and isn't hard to find as long as you don't let my wife navigate. The architecture of the house is certainly as described, a modern and interesting blend of craftsman meets the orient. The layout with the two masters on different levels is nice for multiple families, as in our case we were traveling with friends, three small children, and a dog. We put the kids off in the upstairs wing of the house and took that master and let our friends have their privacy downstairs. The steam shower in the upstairs master was a nice feature. We found a few things around the great room that we needed to move out of reach from the kids but generally very family friendly, and the gated part of the yard down and around from the deck also makes the place dog friendly as other reviewers have noted. The kitchen and BBQ were pretty well stocked with basics and great for prepping meals for seven, although some non-stick pots and pans would have made cleanups easier. Our kids loved looking at the deer from the big window seat and all enjoyed curling up there with a cup of coffee or a book to enjoy the view. Bit of a bummer that there was no TV anywhere in the common space to catch a football game, but it seems to be by design and we didn't really miss it. Overall a great time, but as another reviewer noted, some additional instructions about how to work things around the house like the fireplaces and hot tub would have been helpful as it is a modern house with a lot of buttons and switches and we weren't able to figure those things out. The hot tub never heated up, however the management couple did offer to come out to help, but we decided we'd rather just spend time alone than having people at the house working on things. Cell phone and internet service was also spotty at best, but hopefully that's not why you go to the San Juans. Overall a great place to stay."

  • I hated to leave...

    "What an extraordinary find. The cabin is at once elegant and charming, with absolutely everything one could want to produce a delightful fireside dinner in front of a gorgeous water view. This warm, cozy cabin provided us a home away from home in a quiet, secluded spot, yet it was minutes away from anything we wanted to do. The appointments let you know a fisherman decorated it. The kitchen let's you know a cook helped. And the upstairs reading nook - with a lovely view - let's you know it was designed for comfort. My family and I loved every moment except for the part where we had to leave. We will be back. I cannot recommend this more highly. It is now tied for first place with a cabin I know in Mendocino. Lovely spot for all ages, easily accommodates a large family or group."

  • Perfect Family Island Getaway

    "We have been staying at Michelle and Lanie's rental houses for the past 5 years. This year we rented both cottages - SeaSpray and the slightly larger cottage on the same property - for a family reunion. The huge lawn in between the two houses gives my kids amply space to play soccer or badminton or just run around. Each year we have added more "toys" to our journey to Lopez, including stand up paddle boards, bikes, and we always rent a double kayak from the kayak rental place in town - all of which we can keep on the property with us. It makes for the most amazing and adventurous vacation. In 5 years of visiting we still haven't gotten to all the places we want to explore on the island! The cottages are immaculate, beautifully decorated, and very comfortable with stunning views of the water from most rooms. Michelle and Lanie treat us like family, with their kindness (including treats from their garden!) and hospitality. They are also equally aware of giving us lots of privacy and are respectful of us having our own family experience. It is the perfect balance of feeling well-cared for and being on our own, tucked away in the south end of the island with the beautiful Davis Bay only steps away. For the past five years, it has been a great experience for our family, who now range in age from 9 to 87. Clearly we love it because we keep coming back!"

  • exactly what we were looking for

    "The Chalet was ideal for our family. Cute, plenty of room, all the necessities for cooking and playing at the beach. And we all loved being able to walk a short block down to Birch Bay. We spent hours each day playing around in the water, then evenings relaxing at the house."
