My husband and I both have very busy schedules that include lots of travel and the day-to-day requirements of running our own companies. We come to Lopez to rejuvinate and spend time with our family. I grew up in Seattle and have a deep appreciation for all the Pacific Northwest has to offer. We love to fish, hike, kayak, snoop around the village, cook, and spend time here unplugged from the demands of our hectic lives.This is our dream house and we are sure you will enjoy its charms as much as we do.

Lovely Lopez

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in The Channel House for two nights with a group of close friends and we had a great time! It was hard for us to leave. We enjoyed the hot tub, the outside heaters and sitting on the deck enjoying nature and a large table to gather around to share conversation and memories to last a lifetime!

Thanks again!

We spent Thanksgiving 2013 at the Channel House and could not have asked for a better location. Hope to make it a yearly tradition.

Was everything I was hoping

  • 5 of 5
Channel House is gorgeous! A group of nine of us stayed there to celebrate a birthday and everything exceeded our expectations. The house set up is great for entertaining (darts were so fun!) and the kitchen is fully stocked. The wrap around deck is huge and would be great in the summer. The fire pit and stairs to the beach are so charming, and the hot tub was clean. Small touches were very nice - tons of movies to choose from, better than average bedding, and towel warming racks!

The only thing of note was that the listing says there's a pull out sofa and that it sleeps 12, but at some point that pull out was removed so it actually only sleeps 10. A bit of confusion with my group since it was all adult couples and we'd planned on using the sofa, but not a huge deal. We hope to return!

Owner's Response: Dear Sarah:

We are terribly sorry about the removal of the sofa bed..... Sandra and I stayed there just a couple of weeks ago with a full house and the sofa bed was so broken-down we had it removed but forgot to remove it from the VRBO listing. Unfortunately you had already booked the house before this happened. We did however send up a luxury queen sized air matress before your stay.... was it not there when you arrived?
The sofa-bed has now been removed from the listing until we replace it which we plan to do shortly. Other than that we are delighted you liked our home.
Martin and Sandra Button. Owners.

The best part of this rental were the beautiful views from the deck. It also had a nice layout with several different rooms to accomodate everyone's activities. We enjoyed the reading materials, puzzles, great kitchen, heaters on the deck for cool mornings and convenience to town.

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
This property worked very well for our family. We were delighted to find a high chair, playpen and baby rocker there for our little ones. The views are amazing. Climbing the stairs several times a day became a norm. We loved having a great beach right out the back door.
We are all looking forward to a return visit to this piece of heaven.

Excellent in all respects

  • 5 of 5
We had a 12-person family gathering and the property was wonderful. The advert and pics actually underestimate the property, in my opinion. The beach is almost deserted for half a mile in each direction, the view of the water from the very long deck is wonderful 24 hrs a day, really, and the master suite is like a property in itself, with a good bed overlooking the water. There are also two gas heaters on the deck to support evening dining and hanging out. The kitchen was a little cramped for a large family that really gets into cooking but the stove is gas. Four of the sleeping spots are in two bunk beds in one room, in case that matters to you. Lots of flat space to pitch a tent or two, as well. Cupboards are not child-proofed and there are knick-knacks that need to be moved to higher ground with an 18 month-old around, but we had no problems, especially with 11 people to watch the kid. Terrific place.
