About Cynthia Reid

I love to hike, fish, swim and play near the water. Having grown up in a small town, living in the city can be quite a challenge for me. Spending time at the cabin is a great way for me to relax and unwind with my daughter and my two little pups.

Cynthia Reid purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Cynthia Reid chose Lilliwaup

We purchased our vacation home in 1999 and have loved every minute we have spent there. It is one of the rare waterfront canal homes that is located off the main highway so it is quiet and peaceful. Now that our daughter is a teenager, we are finding it hard to spend as much time as we'd like there. So we are taking this opportunity to share the beauty and charm of our little cabin with others.

What makes this cabin unique

Shep's Castle is a rare find on the canal. Located off Highway 101, it's a peaceful and quiet setting to relax, unwind, walk the dogs or play like crazy while crabbing, shrimping, fishing, swimming, etc. This place has it ALL!!

My husband and I stayed at this cabin for five nights on our way to a family event in Washington. After making the reservation, my sister and her son asked if they could join us for one night on their way to the same event. From the website, it appeared the additional charge would be $10 per person per night for a 3 night minimum, or $60 dollars. When I notified the owner, she said the additional cost would be $100. I questioned the rate, and received a defensive and unpleasant message explaining the $100 charge was necessary to cover the additional cost for the 2 guests one night stay. I do not have a problem with the owner charging rates she deems appropriate, but expect published rate information to be accurate. I hope this second and more public complaint results in a correction of the published guest rate information.

Owner's Response: I am very surprised by the use of the words "defensive and unpleasant". I try to have open and friendly conversations with all my guests. In this case I called VRBO and spoke with them and they and I both believe that the listing is very clear on the charges for extra guests. I do know the guests were very upset that they could not just pay for one add'l night for their guests but am taken aback by their review. I'm attaching my response to the guests initial argument below, if it seems abrasive I do honestly apologize, I thought I was just being thorough and as clear as I could.
"I called VRBO and asked them about this situation. The rental rates state very clearly "Rates are based on 2 guests; add $10 per night, per additional guest" The rate I gave you for 2 guests was for 5 nights, thus the guest rates would equal 5 nights as well. According to VRBO since your initial reservation was for 2 guests it should remain at 2 guests and no unauthorized guests are allowed on the property, per my rental rules. If you would like to add them you will need to pay upfront, once again per VRBO. That being said, I have no problem adding the guests but the charge would be the full $100. I think I'd better agree with VRBO on this one and have you pay upfront so I know for sure I'm following their rules. When we fill out their super long and super detailed pricing forms, that is how they display the extra guest rates. I have not had anyone else question it or not understand it but I hope the VRBO answers have made it clearer. The reason my rental rules state "no unauthorized guests" is that even if they are there for the day I have extra garbage to be picked up, extra towels, extra wear on my septic and property and each of those costs me extra $$. That is why the return of the security deposit states that it "will not be refunded if there are unauthorized guests on the property". Thank you and let me know if you would like to add the extra guests for the price quoted and I will send you a booking request for them. As per my rental agreement, I will also need their full names and contact information. Cynthia"

Good Value, Very Quiet and Relaxing

  • 4 of 5
The cabin had everything we needed for our 3 night stay. The kitchen was fully appointed and including the little things like salt & pepper, dish soap, etc. There were also additional thoughtful conveniences beyond the typical rental: basic first aid, current magazines, games, a small basket of kids toys, and some sand toys which we were thankful for with our 2 year old. It was a nice touch.

We did feel a bit confined when the tide was in on the small patch of beach in front of the house, and the trespassing signs were clear that we should not walk along the full stretch of beach into the neighboring areas. However, that should not come as a surprise as the owner was up front in the posting about that. That said, we were able to stretch out and relax a bit along the water as the tide went out and as a bonus picked oysters up right off the rocky beach!! Oysters GALORE! The water was warm enough during our stay to swim in (at least by northwest standards). Be sure to bring your water socks or Keens to traverse the rocky bottom as there are some fun things to explore in the water. We also woke up every morning to find seals on the swimming platforms!

One thing to be aware of is that the bedrooms have no doors. No problem for a family, but if you have 2 adult couples that need private spaces, just FYI. The owner was very responsive throughout our interactions and prompt with returning the security deposit. Overall, it was very reasonably priced and good if your looking for a very quiet, slow-paced vacation and want to fill your belly with oysters!

lovely family of 3 getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Shep's Castle for 3 nights and it was an adorable cabin with everything needed for a few night getaway! My son (4 years old), husband and I enjoyed walks on the beach... bbq'ing and dropping the crab pots right out front (we bought a blow up row boat at big 5 for under 100$ and it was a lot of fun to have out there!)
The owner is very accommodating - we had scheduled for one weekend and then needed to push it out by a week. she was more then happy to move the dates,
I would recommend Shep's for anyone needing a relaxing get away with beautiful views. I would imagine it would be quite cozy in the winter months as well - an amazing wood stove is just waiting for a cuddley couple to enjoy!

Lovely cabin on the water - careful re; rules

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the cabin for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. Beautiful area, lots to do in Hoodsport (and surrounding area), stopped at the Hoodsport Winery, and had a FABULOUS dinner at the restaurant in Robin Hood Village in Union. The downside: be very careful of cabin rules as they will cost you enormously $$ if violated in any way. We made the mistake of using a couple pieces of wood from next to the garage for our bonfire the last night there -admittedly "our bad". However, given a 5 piece bundle cost $5.19 at local store, and we used approximate market equivalent of $8-$10 of wood I have to say the $50 charged for our infraction was EXCESSIVE! Perhaps a $40 charge for pain and suffering. We grabbed a couple pieces of wood at about 9pm our last night and had a fire going until midnight. It was implied we used 1/3 cord of wood. Not even possible in 3 hours time. The wood we used up until that night was purchased by us. I believe this was attempt to recoup the $159 credit given for 1 night due to half day of septic problems and having plumber outside the front door drilling and snaking. Stuff happens to be sure, and we felt satisfied re; the 1 night credit for inconvenience. However, the excessive cost for a few pieces of wood versus the actual market cost has left a sour taste for me. We fully intended to return as a truly beautiful spot and more than lovely cabin but, afraid being charged for 1/3 cord of wood has changed our mind. Forewarned is forearmed. Had I any idea that we might be charged approx 5x actual cost (figure $50 for 10 pieces - or less wood), I would have just jumped in the car at 9pm and picked up 2 bundles at the store for $10.40! Expensive lesson learned. I will still give a Good rating for beauty of location and the cabin itself, and the owner was nothing but very pleasant to work with. FYI - We also had the joy of watching a mama seal and 3 pups nearly entire time there. What a treat!

Owner's Response: As much as I appreciate the patience of the renters regarding the plumbing emergency, I do moniter my property and private woodpile very closely. In addition, I do have full-time neighbors who keep a close eye on the property and guests. Because I leave wood in the cabin's woodbox for my renters, this is the first time I've had anyone use wood from my stock which is out of the way next to my garage. Fully seasoned wood, stacked and delivered is $400/cord. And there was a substantial amount of wood missing, at least 1/3 cord. Two different neighbors let me know the fire in the firepit was going non-stop during their stay and there was wood being taken from my woodpile. In fact there was not even enough split wood left to fill my next renter's wood box for their stay. I truly believe $50 charge was very reasonable. Interestingly enough, this is only the second time I've ever had to charge a guest for ANYTHING, the first being a broken art piece which the guest kindly offered to take care of after calling me immediately when it happened.
