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. The resort store has an amazing selection of wine, beer, chocolate, coffee, ice cream and cheese which pretty much covers all my needs! There are loads of games available for all ages, we often enjoyed a game of bocce or croquet with grown ups and children playing together. You can spend hours walking on the beach looking for agates. There are non-motorized boats available to use which is great fun, and ample hiking trails. The resort has a delightful building just for massage and if you ask one of the friendly staff they will set up an appointment to fit your schedule.
Overall Guemes Island Resort is just a great place to go and relax and get away to be with your family. it's the sort of place where my son goes out after breakfast and finds other kids to play with on the Beach or in the communal areas of the resort, checks back in for lunch, then heads out again until dark and I never have to worry about him. We often go during open crabbing season and get a license in anacortes, row one of the resort boats out and set a crab trap, then spend our afternoons picking crab and drinking wine on the porch while we chat and admire the views and listen to the kids play until dark. What more could you ask for from a vacation?
