If you want to get away from it all, enjoy peace and tranquility in a beautiful serene spot, then Lonesome Cove is the place. We loved the location; on the beach with a beautiful view of Speiden island, seabirds, seals and sailboat traffic. The cabins are rustic, "real" log cabins, complete with fireplace, deck, and a cozy bedroom, and very... More

We’ve been coming to Lonesome Cove Resort since 1995, and have just returned from another wonderful week in “our” cabin. I’ve reviewed the place before, but I can honestly say the place gets better and better! Kim and Karl, the on-site managers, seem more like old friends now than innkeepers, and their welcoming personalities are a big part of why... More

We had a family vacation here with our adult children and had a fabulous stay. This place is wonderful if you are looking for a very peaceful and quiet location. The log cabins are cozy, with views out to Speiden Channel and Speiden Island across the way. We had cabin 5, which has 2 bedrooms, and was very comfortable for... More

My family has been returning off an on to this extraordinary place for 27 years. I adore it. If fact, I adore it so much I don't necessarily want to rave as much as I will, however, do, because part of me really wants to keep this marvelous, magical place a secret. However, I'll share with you because I want... More

Visited by boat and the Owner's were very accommodating and maintain a nice dock complete with fenders. No stuffiness here. the Owners Kim and Karl live right on the property and you'll feel like your visiting old friends rather than going to a resort. They went out of their way to tell us of places to visit. Cabins were rustic... More

We could not have chosen a better place to celebrate our anniversary! The resort is everything you would think of in a secluded romantic island setting. The wine from the local winery is fantastic and goes very well with the view from the deck.The boathouse is a warm and comfortable home away from home. We loved having a fire in... More

My brother and I stayed in the Boathouse in late October while on the hunt to see whales. The cabin was very cozy and actually hung out over the water. We woke to a beautiful sunrise and were able to enjoy our coffee and look out upon all sorts of animals out on the seascape. The owners, Kim and Karl... More

This year we stayed in the Boathouse (formerly referred to as the Net Loft). It is cozy and perfect for a couple on their own. Right out over the water with a great view (all cabins have a marvelous view) toward Spieden Island. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the deck for coffee in the morning and a glass of great... More

This was an amazing experience! It was our 10th wedding anniversary and we wanted to stay somewhere off the beaten path without any electronic interruptions that would force us to be cell phone and laptop free. This did it. The couple running the place were very accommodating and really sweet. You can tell they have pride in their destination and... More
