Nadine's home was everything I had hoped for and more. I love that it is tucked away and the hills, and although there are neighbors nearby, you feel like you are completely alone. Her house was gorgeous, I never wanted to leave. Nadine was available by phone and email, and gave nice suggestions of restaurants and things to do. I would go back in a heartbeat!
Nadine had all the arrangements in place for our arrival and we had a truly wonderful stay at Winterpond. The house was so charming and welcoming - it was the perfect place for a quiet getaway. Plenty of wood was provided for the stove which was much appreciated. We couldn't have asked for anything more!
We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend at Winterpond. The house is beautifully decorated, so thoughtfully designed, spotlessly clean and well supplied for visitor's needs. We loved the views, the walks nearby, the comfortable living room and real dining room; everything about our stay, despite lots of rain followed by a windstorm and very cold weather. Thanks for sharing your home on Orcas! We hope to return.
What a wonderful place to spend a weekend! The home was lovely, rain was abundant and Orcas was as magical as ever. Nadine was an attentive and responsive host and we appreciated her hospitality very much, despite not being able to meet her. We would return again!
We had the most spectacular time on Orcas! Winterpond is gorgeous and exceeded our expectations. There were so many ways in which Nadine obviously went above and beyond - the plush bathrobes, the fluffy bedding, the goodies in the kitchen (pancake mix, coffee, tea) and we thoroughly enjoyed the vinyl collection and sound system! The home is full of light (naps on the couch in the sun were had!) and the wood burning fireplace was gorgeous in the evenings. I cannot say too many good things about this welcoming home, straight out of a catalogue! Wonderful!
Wow, thanks so much for your kind review. So glad you enjoyed.
We loved our stay here!- the house is beautiful and very clean. Nadine stayed close by and even came by to check on us (we had called her because we could not find the house and due to my cell phone reception we could not connect and she wanted to see if we made it okay).
Even though my cell phone reception was poor, the internet was great.
We slept great and the wood stove did a great job of heating the home.
We'Ive stayed at a number of (website hidden)'s and AirBNB's, but Winterpond was by far the nicest place we've ever been. Beautifully decorated and designed, the cottage is a perfect place to hang out while on Orcas Island. It's nice and private, and even prettier than the pictures (which is hard to believe). If I were Nadine I'd definitely charge more!
Doug, Thanks so much for such a great review. I do charge more in the summer. But as a retired teacher, I like to think I can keep it at least somewhat affordable for people like me!!
I couldn't imagine a more perfect getaway. The setting is quiet, peaceful, and the view is beautiful. We loved hiking in the rain and then coming home to make a fire and eat roasted vegetable soup. Nadine was easy to work with and made sure our stay was delightful. We hope to return!
This place was really lovely. It was cozy and had plenty of space. The view from the deck is beautiful. The house was immaculate when we arrived and we had everything we needed. Would love to come back sometime.
I think your visiting all of WA counties is very cool. I keep trying to visit all the state parks. But there are many! Thanks for your stay.
Nadine was very communicative and her home is absolutely lovely. Nadine has a beautiful aesthetic, sense of design and her home has a great warmth and beauty. Everything was exactly as described and we enjoyed our stay here very much. The bedroom is particularly gorgeous and relaxing, like a retreat.
Nadine was a great guest. We didn't get to meet, but she was very easy to communicate with via messaging and left my studio in great condition. I would happily welcome her back.
Absolutely no communication skills. We had no idea that she had issues finding things to do in Colombo. We are in a central location an all you need to do is ask. She left us a negative review which we will take seriously and strive to address to our ability.
It was a pleasure to host Nadine and her husband at Villa Shenandoah. They were a really friendly couple. We wish to see them with us again.

Nadine and Bob were clean, respectful, trustworthy guests. I sure hope they come back and stay with us!
Nadine and Bob were fantastic guests! Clean and cordial, and I'd have them back anytime!
Nadine is the best, and Winterpond is amazing! My partner and I have both stayed there several times, and it was magical. Nadine has thought lots about what would make a guest happy, and she works hard to make everything just right.
