group trip to go crabbing

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely rustic house that accommodated our group very well. There was plenty of space for couples to spread out. The yard and firer pit was fun. The gardens and grounds were delightful. We crabbed, hiked and played on the island. Owner was easy to work with. Accommodations' met our needs.
Kitchen is a little tight and the bathroom interesting but that is part of the charm of this place. We plan to go back in 2014.

Owner's Response: Looking forward to seeing you in 2014! Yes, the wood-fired hot tub is quite unique - a delightful experience on a starry summer night. But don't worry, there is a conventional shower for those more conventional!

Many thanks to our host who provided the perfect home-away-from-home for the 10 of us as we all attended a three day wedding at Guemes island Resort. You will never find another home like this one, filled with character and treasures from around the world. Chris even set out her farm-grown flowers and some produce for us to enjoy. The grounds are beautiful with many healthy flowers, fruits, and vegetables. The outdoor hot tub is unique (an old fashioned bath tub hooked up to a wood heater). CHris is a wonderful host. Highly recommended.

A Great Visit!

Hi Chris!

Just a short note to let you know how MUCH we enjoyed our stay at your amazing getaway. Everyone was super impressed by all the amazing greenery and touches with fresh flowers in every room was truly special. The fire pit and the outside tub were particular favorites. We would love to come and stay again next year if you are still renting the property out :o)

The fresh veggies, eggs,inspiring recycling plan, and really cool dishes were totally awesome and make the place a true home away from home!

Have a great summer, and hope to see you again in 2013

Rustic cabin missing 'a little something'

As the other reviews mention, this property is beautiful, with plenty of space for young children to run around! The patio area and hammocks are a definate bonus! The house is rustic, as advertised, but unfortunately very dirty. The bedrooms in the house smelled musty when we arrived, and there was noticable dirt in the bathrooms and elsewhere in the house, that could have easily disappeared with a bit of cleaning ahead of time (there was even an unflushed toilet!) It also would have been a more comfortable vacation rental if the owner's clothing and shoes weren't so visible. We tried to find the owner several times after the first night, without success. The island itself is quaint, and we fell in love with Anderson's General Store. Travellers coming from Sidney should know that the later ferry that arrives in Anacortes at 8:30pm will not allow you to catch the ferry to Guemes, that departs at the same time, without making special arrangements with the night captain (an extra $100 for the sailing, plus fares). All in all, we would only recommend this property to those who value simple retreats, who don't mind putting in a little elbow grease to clean themselves.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you did not have a more positive experience at my cabin. I sensed that this spot was not a match for you when you asked me to turn on the heat (instead of using the wood stove that was provided with kindling). Also I noted that you did not use the outdoor fire pit, the wood-fired hot tub, or consume many of the organic vegetables. In addition, you did not use the compost bin but added all your compost to the non-food garbage. Finally, one in your group spilled a bottle of orange soda on the bedspread and left the empty bottle on the bed. I tried washing the bedspread but the orange color would not come out. As you noted, this is a simple retreat. I think the type of person who enjoys this setting appreciates its lovely, wooded, rural nature and does not expect the utmost in cleanliness from a rustic log cabin located in the woods. I appreciate your feedback and think your response will help others decide if this outdoor setting is right for them.
Sincerely, Chris

Guemes Island, less well-known than its San Juan neighbors, is an unspoiled gem where you can step back in time and experience island wilderness. Eagles dive for fish, herons stand watch on pilings, and deer families browse blackberries. Motorists are few and the locals always give you a wave as if to say 'Isn't this great!' In between ferries, bicyclists are plenty, and riding is a joy. Guemes Mountain, a great destination by car or bike, provides a 360 degree panorama of the San Juan Islands and is a favorite hike for a lunch reverie or a breathtaking sunset .
