Couldn't have asked for a better experience while staying on the Island. Carol Jo is lovely and her hospitality is par none. We stayed in the Garden Cottage which was very cozy, clean and reasonably priced. Just a short walk down a path from the garden and you are on your own private beach. Can't wait to return!

We absolutely loved the Garden Cottage at Blackberry Beach. Carol Jo was wonderful and helpful. There were many "extra touches" that we noticed & appreciated...things like fresh coffee beans with a coffee grinder, games & twinkly lights that made the place look magical. The cabin was very clean. Our favorite thing was walking out onto the long dock in the... More

Everything about this place was just what we were looking for. It's private, and the water view is fabulous. The price is right, and the cabin very clean. We were only there three nights, so for the most part, we hiked Turtleback Mt. and Mount Constitution. The next time we stay there, we will set aside a day or two... More

We found this place the week before our trip. Carol, the owner, worked with us on payment as she doesn't take credit. Not a big deal though. Cabin is well appointed. Has one large room for the livingroom & kitchen. Kitchen has everything we needed for cooking our own meals. Has a little dining area with a great view. Views... More

We just stayed three nights in the Garden Cottage after the lodging we had reserved on the beach (Judd Cove) fell through at the last minute. Fortunately, Carol Jo had room at her place, so we stayed there. Granted, we were disappointed by not having a beach front place, but we were glad to have somewhere to stay. The cabin... More

My husband and I loved the garden cabin at Blackberry beach. It was private, quiet, conveniently located, and reasonably priced (for the San Juans). This is not a hotel, so it is not for everyone, but it was perfect for us. The entry area/breezway is a little messy, but the cabin itself is great. We found it clean and comfortable,... More

It had been 16 years since we'd been in the islands, and were looking forward to a great isolated weekend. Waterfront cabin was "OK" at best. Not worth $130 a night that's for sure. We never actually met Carol Jo, but she was a great communicator and left us alone for the weekend which was really great. The cabin is... More

Carol Jo E, Owner at Blackberry Beach Cabins, responded to this review

I am so sorry this was such an unpleasant experience. I remember the weekend they came in we had a power outage due to a wind storm so I was unable to do the complete and thorough cleaning before they arrived - no power!. I called them and told them the weather was stormy and the power was out and... More

Certainly a nice place to spend a weekend doing very little. A place you can sit, walk or a short drive around the island from

I stayed 4 days in the Garden Cabin which sits behind the more expensive and more recently remodeled Waterfront Cabin. It's old but clean and well furnished and the best value on the island. (Admittedly you can stay cheaper at the hostel at Doe Bay but all you get there is a bed and shared bathroom.) The owner, Carol Jo... More

I found this spot through a blog on the San Juan Islands. It was described as a nice and reasonably priced place to stay. We booked through the owner's web site (got the address there and called her). We stayed in the cottage with the view of the bay and were delighted with it ($130/night off season - no one... More
