Just what we needed!

Our family of 4 (Two children ages 4 and 2) wanted a getaway from Montana mudseason. We packed up the car and made our way to Orcas. We were so happy to spend 7 nights at the PineCone Cabin. From the beginning, the process of renting from Ken and Karen was smooth. We felt so at home and so relaxed the entire time. No exaggeration, while at the house the only sounds we heard were the ocean waves, eagles soaring, hummingbirds buzzing, seagulls calling, and other natural, peaceful sounds. We were in heaven. The kids explored the beach at various times each day and loved discovering shells and huge purple and orange starfish at low tide. We saw porpoise and seals and watched the resident eagles coming and going from their beautiful nest up the road. Even though it was chilly, we slept with the window open and relaxed to the sound of the ocean.
The house had everything we needed... everything. It was so convenient-especially with kids.
The location of the house was perfect for our family. We rode bikes, took walks from the house and loved every minute of it... Getting to town for coffee shops, the bookstore, library, stores, and restaurants was so easy!
This is not to be missed. A wonderful time!
Thank you Ken and Karen!

Families with Young Children,
Owner's Response: Most of your week was showery, but it was really great to wave as we saw you bicycling, walking, etc. We always have said, vacations are what you make of them. We knew you were doing just that. It was nice that you took the time to come see us during your vacation to comment on the house and the fun you were having. Sometimes, when we are having to work...we can "vacation" vicariously by knowing our guests are having a good time! Thanks for writing and staying with us.
