We stayed at the Eagle's Nest and must say it was perfect for my husband, myself and our dog. Quiet, and very quaint, sipping wine from the hot tub overlooking the Sound. Totally secluded and private. Had a grill and wicker chairs and table if we wanted to cook outside and a kitchen inside. Cottage was very open and roomy.... More

We had a Groupon we used to stay here. It turned out to be a screaming deal. We stayed in Seal Point, which is one of the larger houses. There are three bedrooms; each with its own bathroom. There were a washer and dryer, full kitchen and a beautiful wrap around deck. We reserved a larger ace because there were... More

This place is the best ever! Way better than a hotel or motel. There are several different cottages, each with it's own theme. We stayed in Orca Watch, which had a nautical theme. Everything you need is supplied from coffee beans to private hot tubs. The owner and her son were very nice and totally accommodating. It is right on... More

The Pros: Extremely friendly and helpful owner and manager Beautiful and quiet location with a view of the water Lots of character in what we saw of their cottages Amenities galore (hot tubs, sauna, tvs, dvd players, jacuzzi tubs, full kitchens, games, books, etc) The Cons: The cottages and the office aren't marked so it's hard to tell what's what....

Wonderful retreat! Stayed in a great cottage, Seal Point, with our family. Great home with great views. The kitchen was fully stocked and very welcoming. Private jacuzzi was the best. All the cottages are so unique and the property has lots of hidden paths and secret garden spots to explore. Owners very friendly and helpful. Magical!

Stayed here with the living social deal in the screech owl suite. Was such an awesome place. All the comforts of home and an exceptional kitchen! Private jacuzzi and very laid back friendly owners. Would definitely stay here again!

My husband and I stayed Labor Day weekend in the Heron House and had a great experience! The cottage was unique, we had fun pointing out all the little custom made details that made up the Heron House. The cottages are also in a great location, close to the town and a great base to explore other parts of the... More

Stayed in the Heron Cove cottage. Lovely artist's cottage. It's like staying in an art gallery. Everywhere you look you discover something new. Beautiful view. Our cottage had everything we needed. Quiet and very comfortable. Owners very nice and accommodating.

We stayed in the Heron Cove for two nights and overall I was not pleased w withur stay. The uniqueness of the property is worth noting but it lacked many things for a comfortable stay. There was a lack of blankets, towels, and basic kitchen supplies. The towels were moldy and everything felt dirty. The family seemed very nice butWiuld... More

You can never have enough blankets, so even though we have extra ones for each level of Heron Cove, we shall be getting a couple more (hopefully ones with herons on them) upon your recommendation. With each new guest, each bathroom gets a whole newly washed set of towels and wash-cloths, and fresh extra towels and wash-cloths. We have not,... More

We stayed in the Orca Watch Cottage. The place is cute and has great views except it wasn't very clean. We must have killed about 30 flies in two days. Because of the flies, we didn't feel comfortable cooking in the cottage even though it was stocked with most of the kitchen essentials. The business seems to be run by... More

We are sorry that your time with us was less than satisfactory. In spite of our best efforts to make the property insect-free, once a year some flies manage to hatch out on somewhere on the property, and unfortunately, you were the ones there during those days. We apologize, and wish we could have given you another cottage that was... More
