Our family has been going to Guemes Island practically every summer for years. It is a revamped rustic fishing camp turned into a family vacation spot. Part of the charm of Guemes is the laid back feel and the lack of urban amenities. It is more like very cushy camping than going to a five star hotel - but they... More

This is one of the best family retreats in the Pacific Northwest. We love the cozy cabins with real fireplaces, the long beach walks, the trips to the "mountain" up the great trail made by Skagit Land Trust, the kayak trips right off the beach, and most of all the the mornings and nights of quietness, stars, mist and fantastic...

Since visiting guemes island resort we are constantly telling other families from around the country to go there. It is my idea of a perfect family vacation. The experience harkens back to what I imagine the resorts in the Catskills to be in the '50's. The setting is breathtaking. The houses and cottages are nicely appointed with everything you need....

Placed on the hill so your away from the commotion of the beachcombers. In a park like setting. Hot tub on the back deck very private. Amazing linens and... More

I absolutely loved our stay at Guemes Island Resort. It's peaceful and beautiful and totally unique. It isn't your typical cookie cutter resort with restaurants and poolside bars, so if that is what you are looking for, maybe its not the place for you. However, if that is what you tend toward, do yourself a favor and do something a... More

We will definetely be coming back. What a profoundly charming, peaceful and relaxing place. This is not your corporate resort experience but instead a place owned and run by caring locals. The staff was pleasant and helpful but not at all overbearing as can sometimes be the case with smaller places, The property is full of unique and thoughtful touches... More

Everyone knows that you only get one chance to make a first impression. My first impression was that the Guemes Island Resort looked more like a practical sporting retreat with rustic camping rather than a resort. Everything following revealed that they need to learn about hospitality etiquette. First of all you don't charge a guest the full amount until they... More

My side of the family camps once together every year, but last year we decided to stay in yurts at guemes instead to accommodate babies/kids and me being pregnant. We (9 adults and 2 kiddos and one dog) all loved the resort. We stayed in the four 16" yurts and used the picnic shelter and fire pit for our meals.... More

My husband and I had a much needed weekend getaway to Guemes Island Resort in early December. Stayed in one of the two newer cabins with it's own private hot tub right outside the back door, literally 2 or 3 steps and you can get in and warm up! The wood details in the new cabins are so beautiful. They... More
