Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay here at the Stone Cottage. It's so peaceful here. The early morning sunrise is beautiful- with the eagles flying in & out of the trees, it's amazing! We enjoyed long walks, taking in the awesome views and then coming back to a nice warm fire, very cozy. So glad we had the opportunity to come. Thanks so much Debbie & Dave!

Absolutely Lovely Cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Had the most wonderful, relaxing vacation at this beautiful cottage. It's as lovely as it appears in the pictures. The inside is so cozy and has a great cabin feel with all modern amenities. The view of Padilla bay from the cottage is gorgeous. It's a very quiet, peaceful setting. We brought our bikes and biked all around the island which was fun. We also took a few walks on the beach. We loved the town of Edison which is just a few minutes away. There is a wonderful bakery and a few shops and cafes. We brought our own food but stopped at the bakery in Edison for bread and cookies. We ate many of our meals out on the patio which has a view of the bay. Overall we so enjoyed renting this cottage and can't wait to return!

The Quintessential Northwest Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is every bit as darling as it looks. Owned and hosted by a couple as gracious as they are talented. Debbie is an interior designer and Dave is a builder, so you can be sure the cottage is tastefully designed and beautifully maintained throughout. You can trust too, that the Island setting is private, quiet and perfectly idylic.

Do not hesitate to book this little gem for your next romantic getaway -- I guarantee that you will NOT be disappointed.

Wonderful cottage getaway!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first VRBO experience, and we could not have been more thrilled with our vacation to this magical little "Stone Cottage" on Samish Island. The owners, Debbie & Dave, were quick to respond to our emails inquiring about the property, and even phoned us to answer the questions that we had before we made the reservation.

We flew into Sea-Tac airport, rented a car and headed north on the I-5 for a little over an hours' drive, stopped in Burlington at the Fred Meyer grocery store for food, and headed over to the Island. The drive from Burlington is through beautiful fields and pastures, and it was wonderful not to have to take a ferry for that special island experience.

When we arrived at the cottage, we were met by Debbie, who welcomed us to the Stone Cottage and showed us the property. All I can say is, wow! The pictures on this site are good, but do not do the property justice. The cottage exterior is beyond charming, and is surrounded by towering pines, lush green lawns, and flower gardens. There are comfortable adirondack chairs on the front lawn that look out over the bay, a table with four chairs where we enjoyed many of our home cooked meals, and a gas barbecue. There were no bugs or mosquitos either!

This cottage has been lovingly restored, preserving the original hardwood paneling in the kitchen and family room, with a new white cottage kitchen, stone counters, butcher block island, stove, and dishwasher. The bedrooms are charming, the bathroom has a clear glass shower enclosure, pedestal sink and lovely new tile work. There is also a washer and dryer tucked away in the bathroom for those who stay several days. The livingroom is open to the cottage kitchen, has a comfy loveseat, a leather easy chair with ottoman, and has been decorated to the last detail with antique accents and furniture. Large picture windows look directly out onto Padilla Bay, where we curled up with our cups of coffee and watched the bald eagles diving and fishing in the bay.

If you enjoy watching wildlife, this is the place for you! We saw a doe and her two fawns in the yard each day, owls, bald eagles, red robins, great blue herons, gulls, and a even a little family of raccoons. The island is small and we walked each day along the bay and down on the shoreline where we saw active tidepools of crabs and fish. Some day trips we took were, Cascade Hwy drive, Chuckanut Hwy, Mt. Baker drive, and Friday Harbor Orca whale watching.

Thx!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures do not do justice to this absolutely adorable cottage. As a child I spent many summer weekends on Samish Island, but had not been back for many, many years. A family reunion was being hosted on the island, so I started looking for vacation rentals. I was excited to find this cottage available, and even more excited when I actually arrived. The hosts are nice, the location is gorgeous, the cottage has been renovated inside so it is modern, but hasn't lost it's rustic charm. The decor is absolutely beautiful and is in keeping with the theme of the island. The cottage is also well appointed right down to luxurious towels and goodies for the bath, to a well stocked kitchen. It is absolutely quiet here as well. The landscaping is pretty and there is a nice picnic area out back with a great BBQ. My only regret is that I didn't have more time to spend here as I had be away at the reunion for the majority of the time I was on the island. Be sure to read the story of how the owners acquired the cottage, and then look at the framed picture that sits on the mantle. It's a great story! Just a note: Be sure to gas up your car and stock up your pantry before you arrive as there is no market or gas station on the island. (Edison has a great bakery and wine and cheese shop, however). I can't say enough about this terrific cottage, and I hope to be able to return one day!I highly recommend this vacation rental!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind words and for sharing your cottage experience.Thank you also for the opportunity to remind future guests that they will be leaving the chaos of traffic, malls and supermarkets behind when they visit Samish Island.

Samish Island is part of the San Juan islands 'Banana Belt', which means we get substantially less rainfall and more sunshine than inland. This allows for year round outdoor activities including Beach combing, Bicycling, Kayaking, and Hiking. Enjoy the island life without the expense of a ferry!

Located half way between the exciting cities of Seattle and Vancouver BC (an hour drive from the border.)The island is also just a short distance from beautiful Chuckanut drive and the coastal towns of Anacortes, Edison, Fairhaven and La Conner. Wonderful dining and shopping experiences await you at each stop.

Every season offers something new to see and do. When you book your reservation we will be sure to let you know about up-coming events and attractions in the area.
