What makes this house unique

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.'

Henry David Thoreau

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Delightful cabin!

  • 5 of 5
This is a very special place to stay. Our multigenerational family of 7 loved our visit! Guemes Island is very easy to get to, quiet and rural. The house is set back from the road in the woods with fruit trees, chickens, thriving gardens, and a greenhouse. The house, itself, is comfortable and beautifully decorated and furnished. The owner has thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable! We ate dinner on the back patio, had a fire in the fire pit, and soaked in the wood-heated outdoor tub - really fun! It was a privilege to stay here and we hope to return! Thank you, Chris.

Unforgetable Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We are very pleased having a fantastic holiday at Guemes Island. Every couple in our group are very impressed by this lovely and well decorated house, beautiful garden with some many different fruits and vegetable, cute cat, productive hens who always deliver 2-3 eggs every day, and a friendly landlord. This holidy is unforgetable! After this trip, we decided coming back next year.

More Than We Could Ask For

  • 5 of 5
We are a group of Chinese Canadians that came down here to celebrate the B.C. Day long weekend. Our jaws dropped the moment we put our feet on this beautiful property. Everything here is so good. The garden, the house, the supplies, the interior decorations, they all came as a happy surprise for us. There was a jar of fresh flower at every room to greet us. The chicken laid eggs for us everyday. The fruits were so sweet and juicy. The evenings we spend around the dining table talking and laughing way past midnight were so enjoyable. We truly had a wonderful time here. Many of us even said, jokingly and seriously, that this is the best trip we ever had since birth. We left the house content and happy and full of excitement to come back next year!! Thank you Chris for this wonderful stay!

Perfect place to unwind

  • 4 of 5
After a family weeding we came to relax. The home and grounds were perfect. It was a cloudy day and a fire was lit in the stove making the welcome all the better. We had rain showers at night but not during the day time and really enjoyed evenings out by the fire pit (even cooked dinner on the open fire a couple of nights) Only drawback was that the beds were all doubles--really need at least a couple queens!

Owner's Response: Glad you settled in by the woodstove when the weather turned rainy! I've taken your advice and have replaced two double with two queen size beds.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Our jaws dropped as we drove up this long driveway to such a beautiful property. Breath taking. The gardens, the chickens, the hot tub, the the most beautiful greenhouse in the house with fresh organic herbs and veggies, the barn, the fresh eggs from the chickens in the morning, the wood burning stove, not to mention real log cabin, fresh flowers in every room, complete with that amazing cabin smell, the peace, the quiet was just about one of the most special weekends we have ever had. Chris thank you so much. Our stay at your beautiful home just makes us even more excited to be getting married on Guemes next June. We will be coming back very soon!!! Can't thank you enough. This property is highly recommend.

An Amazing Weekend Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Three 40-50-something sisters and two 20-something nieces had an amazing time at this lovely log home and property. We loved the big old trees ringing the property, the raised-bed gardens and flowering fruit trees, the pond with the duck, the bonfire pit, the week-old chicks (that we picked up and petted), the birds singing in the morning and the frogs calling at night. We also appreciated the beautiful assortment of dishes and glasses, the wood all chopped for the woodstove, and the cozy bedrooms. We took the amazing new trail on the east side of the island through a gorgeous forest with spring wildflowers up to an overlook of the San Juan Islands, went to the county park on the north end of the island, hung out and walked on the beach close to the ferry landing, and checked out the general store. We were sorry when we had to leave, and would love to check out the progress of the gardens and chickens as the year progresses.

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 .
