Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything that they said about this place is true, and much much more. The views are stunning from nearly every vantage. We had our wedding photography done there, and we could not have asked for a better day. The sneak peek photos are simply beautiful. We spent six nights there. Don & Kathy are very nice. They we're very accommodating to us, yet they were always respectful of our privacy as well. We are absolutely going to book another vacation there in the near future. We believe this place would be amazing even in winter weather conditions. The apartment has heated floors and a cozy fireplace to keep you warm while still being able to enjoy the views from the front room. The steam shower is also a great way to get the chill off after a chilly walk on the beach. We felt right at home there, and we even got a tad emotional upon departure. Thank you Don & Kathy for sharing your magical home with us.

Cozy with a beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay and were able to relax in this cozy space. There are no shops near by and so not much to walk to. The inland area of the reservation is pretty run down and depressing but as long as you are looking at the water it is all good. We loved the amazing views and the boat ride and hikes on Lummi Island.

Pros...Great steam shower once we figured out how to work it.

Nice to have the full kitchen.

Loved the beach access.

Heated floors were great.

Cons... The fireplace seams to have some venting issues because it set the carbon dioxide alarm off.

The living room "couches" weren't very comfortable and looked worn out.

Small table in living room collapses unexpectedly and with little pressure making not very usable.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear you had a good time. Sorry some of the side streets seem depressing. Living here we concentrate on the views of Mt.Baker, the islands, Salish Sea and wildlife in the grass lands and old growth forest. Lummi flats has some of the best bird watching around.Some people like the new wide side walks, solar lit walking paths, traffic circles with totem art and the new minimalist modern housing and government service buildings and offices at the Tribal Center. There is also the Northwest feel casino, spa , hotel restaurant and entertainment complex . All located within about 3-5 miles.On the bleaker parts... hard to judge mans castle is another mans campsite. The hardware has been changed to a more user friendly version on the butcher block table. The old hardware was getting worn and sometimes gave trouble locking it into place. The flame on the gas fireplace has been re-set where it should be. As to the "couches" they move together to create a Queen size bed. They are more of a lounging than a sitting couch. Although the fabric on the covers is a high grade tough as nails Steel Case fabric [it used on up scale office furniture] one of them has faded in the sun. We plan to change it to Sunbrella fabric next summer. The directions on the steam shower posted on the wall must be followed to the letter. Hope this all helps future guests and you on your return visit.

Our stay in the tree house

  • 5 of 5

Don and his caretaker were very helpful in every way. Tree house was very nice and comfortable and had a wonderful view. We found it well supplied with quality products. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best (we experienced slick roads). My oldest daughter and I visited my youngest daughter who is temporarily in Bellingham. We were able to see some beautiful sights and enjoyed each other. I would love to return at a different season. We were there in mid December.

Beautiful location, Well built treehouse apartment

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to escape the Texas heat for the Thanksgiving holiday. I wanted to be by the water and my husband wanted to be close to a mountain. Dons treehouse apartment was perfect for the two of us! I got my ocean views, and he got to play in the snow on Mount Baker about an hours drive away. The Treehouse was super clean, well decorated with beautiful cherry wood details. Kitchen was great for cooking our own meals. The view from the rooftop deck was breathtaking! We would definitely tecommend it to friends and hope to come back to this property again soon. Thanks for hosting us!

This is our second time,we enjoyed it but did have an an unfortunate accident.

The butcher block table on wheels with side wings is hazardous.After making dinner,I went to lower the wing and it slammed down on my hand onto the metal hinges.My two main fingers were smashed and sliced.A trip to the ER was required,where I was stitched and splinted.The ER doctor recommended to go see a plastic surgeon specializing in hands asap. I have been out of work for a week now,have seen a plastic surgeon,I have permanent nerve damage to my fingertips.I am fumbling around one handed, cannot tie my shoes,put my hair in a ponytail,take a shower...the list goes on.Estimated recovery 6-8 weeks

Accidents do happen,I strongly suggest replacing the butcher block table..

I still like the treehouse and plan on returning again.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry to hear about your accident. The butcher block table has leaf hinges. You must lift up on the leaf to collapse the hinge. Your fingers should always be on the outside of the hinge. The reason behind our choice for this table is that the treehouse is a "tiny house" type of living unit where everything must serve two purposes. The butcher block can be rolled to the kitchen for additional counter space or outside for messy jobs like cleaning fish or butchering large vegetables from the garden. It also can have the leafs pulled up and put a chair on each leaf for dining. Upon hearing of your unfortunate accident our on site caretaker and our house cleaner pulled it out of the corner and opened and shut it and found it to be working.. On future visits please ask the caretaker to help ,or bring you another collapsing table,or you can open the double sliding doors which provide an 12 foot opening and the teak table on the deck can be brought inside. Hope to host you for the third time next Halloween. Again our heartfelt regrets for your accident. Kathy and Don
