“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 30 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

As a family of 4 with adult children this was the perfect location and "base camp" for us to visit Orcas Island and Moran State Park. The house worked for all of us to have some privacy and was well cared for. The owner has certain rules such as shoes off at the door and no luggage on the comforters, but this keeps the place nice. All necessary items were provided--coffee filters, coffee, cooking oil, spices, etc., as well as the usual cooking utensils. The house was situated about a 10 minute walk from Cascade Lake in Moran State park and we were able to easily get to the trailhead at the west end of the lake along the "lagoon". The view was incredible. I took photos several times a day because the view was always changing as the sun moved across the sky. Access to the house is up a steep driveway and could be a problem if there was ice. It snowed while we were there but the snow melted by the time we needed to drive anywhere. In the high season it can be difficult to get onto the main roadway from the driveway because of a short sight distance in either direction. We didn't have too much trouble in the off season. Rosario Resort is just up the road and we were able to visit the free museum and the special Saturday afternoon presentation put on in the music room--highly recommended. This house has many stairs so it would not work for someone mobility challenged. For our family, though, it was fine. The price to rent this place was very reasonable in the off season, especially with a discount for extended notice.

“Most relaxing vacation ever!”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was by far our most relaxing vacation of all time, and we have been to a lot of places like Hawaii, Cabo ,Mazatlan,Utah you name it.The place just has a beautiful view from the deck to eat dinner from or just to sit and relax and read a book and watch the sun rise or see the sun set. We would highly recommend any one wanting to relax in one of the most beautiful places in the world to rent this wonderful house!

“FANTASTIC!”
Reviewed 7 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Gorgeous place, great view and location, extremely comfy... all in all just wonderful!

We didn't cook but it was nice having the fridge for our snacks. We didn't use the huge Jacuzzi in the bathroom either but t looked great! We spent a lot of time just looking out the windows! Super quiet and even the road noise wasn't bad- it's present but not disturbing. Birds and deer abound. It would be a great place for a family to rent, it was huge for just we two. We were able to run a load of wash while there which was an added bonus.

The ONLY negative I would say is in the master bedroom upstairs. If the bed was turned to face the large window it would be better. Also the lights along the bed are very bright, small reading lights would be nicer. Oh- also, wifi was spotty.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Liked best: the views from the deck/the deck itself
Liked least: the location of the master bed- can't see out windows

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay! I have never thought of turning the bed so you can look out the window. As for the wi-fi, it is a work in progress. Looking forward to having you again!

“Can't agree more with all the positive reviews!!”

The one thing not mentioned in previous reviews is how wonderful the view is at daybreak. So beautiful and peaceful. One person complained about the rules but that is what helps keep the property in perfect condition. The rules were not unreasonable and are only common courtesy. Susan truly cares that you have a good time.
