Winter is here in the San Juans. Wake up overlooking the pond with a cup of coffee in bed or on your deck. There is plenty of light from overhead to table and bedside lighting.

This place is a zen oasis!!! The attention to detail and comfort is off the charts. We enjoyed a fire in the evening and early morning while watching deer calmly move through the property. The space is very private and well maintained. REALLY thoughtful added touches such as…
