About the property

Cabin, Studio + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Handcrafted timber frame guest cabin on beautiful Westcott Bay. Watch eagles, seals, and otters from your deck, or walk down to the beach to collect clams and oysters for dinner. All the amenities of Roche Harbor (shops, restaurants, swimming, tennis, and more) are only a 5 minute walk away. There is a steep ladder to the loft.

At the end of a long and active day, take a sunset kayak journey out into the bay, and listen as the silence of the islands falls. Truly a place to appreciate the beauty of nature.

Peaceful and breathtaking

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin with beautiful wood work throughout. We enjoyed the comforts of a fire, bird watching, and breathtaking views! The yard is shared with the main house, but it was empty the whole time we were there. My only caution would be the ladder to the loft. My husband and I are pretty agile at 50 and 58, but that's not everyone's profile, so take care to consider this when booking. The beautiful timber bed is worth the climb and was very comfortable, though! I wish we had more time to get the kayaks on the water... next time!

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this cottage several times and have had great experiences each time. The owner is friendly and very quick to respond to any request or need. We will hopefully stay here again in the future.

Beautiful gem of a cabin, view of water through trees, great getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very carefully built and furnished, with lots of warm fir wood and an elegant look. Really, it is a work of art. It was quite clean. We used the kitchen to feed a hungry crew of sailors with no problem. The upstairs loft is a comfy log bed for two with a mini-picture window out on the water. The ladder up to it is steep, and therefore not for everyone, but it's wide and solid, with plenty of handholds. The bathroom and shower were beautiful. The wood stove was a great addition. It was so nice to be unplugged. You are close to the neighbors but the house is facing the water, and you can easily feel like you're away from it all. The covered porch is perfect, and there's a perfect little beach below. We'll be back when we can stay longer than one night between two races! I'd like to anchor in the bay and row in next year. Thank you, Kathy, for accommodating our one night stay, and for the chance to stay in such a well-built and equipped cabin in such a beautiful spot.

Definitely could use some TLC

  • 2 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Westcott Bay for our mini-moon. The cabin was overall lovely and we had a great time exploring the island. However, there were a few issues that decreased comfort during our stay. First, the fridge upon arrival was visibly very dirty and stinky. We were a little shocked at how dirty it was since rest of the cabin was clean. We had to clean it to keep our perishables cold, and it was not very welcoming. Second, the alarm on the side of the bigger cabin on same property continued to go off intermittently during the night for both of the nights we stayed. During our otherwise a quiet getaway, it prevented us from falling asleep and when we did, it woke us up several times during the night. This also impacted our stay negatively. Third, as the other reviewer has stated, the cabin overall could use some TLC. the utensils were old and dirty, propane tanks were all nearly empty, and the dock was not well-maintained. Lastly, I have contacted Kathy via email but she did not offer much of a solution which was very disappointing. Customer service is very important to me and I would not recommend her properties based on this alone.

A wonderful retreat

  • 5 of 5

Everything is so comfortable in this cozy little cabin. Even the ladder to the loft added an element of fun. We were able to go kayaking with the available kayaks, build a wonderful fire on Saturday night, and generally spend quality time together in a clean, comfortable, efficient home. I highly recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to reconnect with your partner.
