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 other generations of families to experience the same beauty that we have. Our children--now grown--have spent part of every summer here, and no doubt my nostalgia for their childhood is part of its appeal, but only a small part. The resort is made up of five vintage cabins on a piece of unparalleled real estate with spectacular views overlooking Speiden Channel in Puget Sound. Nothing but the quiet lapping of the tides breaks the deep silence of the night, and during the day only the thrum of boats making their way to nearby Roche Harbor give any hint of civilization. Simply put, this is a place to restore your soul, create family memories, and commune with the whales, seals, sea otters, deer, eagles, kingfishers, etc. that roam the waters and the grounds. Karl and Kim are welcoming, helpful, and work hard to keep the place in tip-top shape. Clean, comfortable and well-stocked, the cabins are a throwback to a simpler time. I would live there if I could. There. Now I've gone and done it. It's going to be even harder to get a reservation at Lonesome Cove now. But you'll thank me.
