We had dreamed of visiting San Juan Island for as long as before my husband and I were married- life got in the way. For our 16th wedding anniversary, we made it! Aylene was a wonderful host in every way- her suggestions of a special harvest dinner, a thoughtful rose to welcome…

My husband and I stayed at the cottage for our mini-moon and it was the perfect relaxing getaway. Aylene was a great host and very thoughtful and helpful throughout the weekend. The cottage is very cozy and cute with great amenities and in a perfect location close to town. We are…

You are so very welcome Sondra. We would love to have you visit us again and maybe next time we can actually meet each other in person! You'll be "old married folks" by next year and we'll love to hear how your lives are going. Happy life to you and Jakob!

I am loathe to speak too highly of this place because I want to keep it to myself - but that would not be fair. But simply put this place is as adorable as the pictures suggest. It is wonderfully private and the hosts are extraordinary.

This cottage is fantastic! We stayed 4 nights and quickly realized it is in the ideal location, close enough to town but far enough away so the nights are peaceful and you can sleep with the windows open and wake to the birds. The cottage is beautifully decorated with everything…

Courtney, thank you so much taking the time to write such a descriptive, informative review for our future guests who we are certain seek some assurances from past visitors that they may be selecting the right Cottage for their vacation here on the island. It is enormously helpful that you've painted a picture of what you enjoyed and why it may be the right place for others. I'm sorry that we didn't get to speak to much in person during your stay but perhaps in the future we'll meet again and we can chat away together in between your future adventures on our island. Hope that you were able to climb Mt. Rainer, at least in part and it was smoke free during your expedition up towards the clouds!

The cottage is very clean, comfortable and well appointed. We enjoyed the location, a peaceful setting and a short drive into town.
