The Space

bike, kayak or farm stays right on the water...wayfarers welcome, trespassing encouraged!

little hill is our small family homestead, right on marrowstone island's mystery bay -- where we raise organic lamb, clams, oysters, fruits and vegetables. we love to share the place with friends and friends of friends...

join us for a weekend in the bunkhouse, our private rustic out-building: with one queen size bed, a double bed pull out couch and two twin futons it can sleep up to six in its one large sleeping cabin. the bunkhouse has its own kitchen that can look out over the bay, and private outdoor shower, that looks out over our orchard pasture.
Its all very simple, rustic, and beautiful --and there is a ton to do: great beaches a short walk from our place, biking, kayaking, birds to watch, wonderful historic Port Townsend is 25 mins away and Fort Flagler State Park is five miles away for great views and beaches...

We are rustic though. Just the way we like it. The bunkhouse' s gypsy kitchen has a two-burner gas cook top, coffee maker, small oven, fridge and BBQ. Just ask for anything else you need. It has private warm outdoor showers, a composting toilet and heat with a wood stove.

Restaurants: the best nearby is the Ajax – down by the water before you get to Pt Hadlock. Local food, fun atmosphere. Reservations are smart in summer. Farm Reach Café in Chimicum is great for lunch and baked goods. The airport cafe is fun for good ol fashion breakfasts.
In PT, some of our favorites are:

Fountain Cafe

Sirens Pub

Sweet Laurette Cafe & Bistro

Hudson Point Cafe

  • We stayed at Corky & Bills cute little cabin and had a great time... Wish the stay could have been longer! It is well located on Marrowstone island...we brought our kayaks and were able to launch into Mystery Bay right across the road...very convenient! The cabin is well stocked with maps and information about the area, and we were hungry and ready to eat when we arrived...Corky sent us to the Ajax Cafe...wonderful food and atmosphere. We are already talking about going back next year with some of our kayaking friends...

  • Beautiful location. Comfy beds. Lots of room.

  • It was as great as we had anticipated. I think the outdoor shower was my favorite part! The compost toilet was no big deal at all. We brought very little with us-the little island store right next door had everything we needed-they even defrosted a huge salmon for us and we grilled it at the cabin. Beaches and cute places to eat out just a hop skip and a jump! We hardly knew Corky and Bill were there either-we felt that there was enough privacy throughout our stay. I was able to pick fresh blueberries one morning as well. Fantastic place!

    thanks for coming -- and all the feedback. wish I'd been able to say more than hi and get things ready for you! I've been pretty out of it with this surgery...but I'll make sure its all done. thx again.

  • If you need a place to stay on the island, then this is the place. Lots of character, and very comfortable. I'll never forget showering outdoors, and having the sun literally hit my face - priceless! The compost toilet is very smart although a bit awkward in the middle of the night - not really any different if you were at a park camping though. I especially enjoyed all the eclectic art objects around the cabin - you can tell Corky and Bill have traveled the world.

  • My daughter and I had a fantastic time at Corky and Bill's farm cabin. The beautiful location and charming atmosphere far exceeded our expectations as did the hospitality of our hosts. Thank you both for an experience we will never forget.

  • Beautiful place and idyllic environment. We'll definitely be back!

  • We had an absolutely magical time at Corky and Bill's. They were fantastic hosts and we always had everything we needed. Showering outdoors was amazing, the compost toilet is a breeze, and nothing beats waking up to the cutest little sheep. Marrowstone Island is a gorgeous place and staying here topped off an already wonderful trip.

  • John and I had fun staying in the Little Hill for my birthday weekend. It reminded me of a small cabin that my parents own in Indonesia. The outdoor shower was lovely! With hot water pouring all over your body, the clean fresh breeze kept you from getting too hot. Corky had an educational pamphlet regarding the benefits of composting toilet. It was insightful considered that I have never used composting toilet my whole life (other than going into the woods). You do not need to bring many things to the cabin other than yourself, your spouse, or you friends. Kitchen was fully equipped, cabin was full of books, games, and brochures on neighboring towns. Unfortunately we did not meet Corky at the time, so, we plan to visit when they are around! All in all, Little Hill was a place to go get away from the hecticness of the city. If you have the chance to visit Marrowstone Island, please stay at the Little Hill. John and I will definitely go back.

  • Another wonderful stay at the bunkhouse! It was a perfect home base for me as I explored the area this time around, and Corky was fantastically helpful. You can't ask for a better experience. Thank you!

Mostly for myself
bill and i bailed from the full time work a day world to focus on little hill, the finca in the winter months, our family and friends, and new grandkids. we have had la finca caribe on vieques for 17years now, and little hill for four. we love both homesteading -- raising our own food (organic lamb and veggies on marrowstone) living simply, and sharing both places with others. Bill is/was an architect in Seattle, and before that NYC .I've worked most of my life in corporate sustainability and as a creative director in seattle, weird combo I know. But I always wanted to be an innkeeper and a now I'm a little of each, and very very grateful...
