Hello! We are Erik and Pamela, both natives of the Pacific Northwest. After meeting in Seattle, we moved to New York and Washington, D.C. and eventually decided to return home in 2008. We love fussing over details relating to this vacation rental, when we are not working at our day jobs as an environmental attorney and freelance photographer/marketing director for an organic farm on Lopez Island. We adore biking, skiing, fishing and trading notes with pretty much anyone on the vibrant restaurant scenes in Seattle, Portland and Vancouver B.C. We also love renovating homes (we are on our Sixth in 11 years, we just bought a floating home and started renovation). There's just something addictive about the process of creating something personal, beautiful and functional for us, our friends and our guests to enjoy. We thought we received the highest compliment ever when one of our contractors asked if he could bring his wife to stay at the cottage for their anniversary.
